Benefits of Bilateral Real TimeData Exchange

Ronald F. Abler, President

International Geographical Union

Fifth China-US Round Table on Scientific Data Cooperation

Beijing, PRC

27 October 2011


Benefits of data exchanges
Benefits of Data Exchanges

  • Enrichment of collaborating and third parties

    • CAS-USGS Global Land Cover Initiative

    • PAGER (Prompt Assessment of Global Earthquakes for Response)

      • Did You Feel It? Responses feed into PAGER

    • Mapped Assessments of Reported Intensities, Soil Amplification, Fault and Ground Motions, Seismic Intensity, and Population per Intensity


Benefits
Benefits . . .

  • Need comparable utilities that cross all political borders for other disasters, especially floods and atmospheric disturbances

    • ReliefWeb (http://reliefweb.int/)

  • Round Table has taken major steps toward the creation of a locative world

    • Real time locations of all phenomena known by anyone who cares to know, in real time


Trends forcing the locative world
Trends forcing the locative world

  • Need to know—creating the global context in which bi- and multi-lateral data exchanges will occur, even as such exchanges build that world

  • Scale extensions for GIS/GIScience

    • Mesoscale origins

    • Microscale needs (indoor)

    • Macro-scale advantages (global)—GSDI

      • Global Spatial Data Infrastructure Association (GSDI) http://www.gsdi.org/associnfo


  • Trends
    Trends . . .

    • Democratization of mapping

      • Crowdsourcing (crowd science, citizen science)

        • Astronomy, physics, genealogy

        • Medicine?

      • Peoples Atlas of Chicago

      • OpenStreetMap (OSM) http://www.openstreetmap.org/

        • Collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world


    Trends1
    Trends . . .

    • Democratization of mapping

      • Crowdsourcing . . .

        • Supplements standard and “official” mapping

      • Accuracy and Precision?

        • Remote sensing signatures

          • Several low resolution signatures yield more information than a single high resolution signature

        • Combinatorial power of additional data from different sources


    Next steps
    Next Steps

    • Build on the accomplishments of China—US Roundtable

      • Expanded and new bi- and multi-lateral real time data exchanges

    • Attend to the forces driving the evolution of Spatial Data Infrastructures SDIs at micro-, meso-, and macro-scales

    • Incorporate crowdsourcing and crowd science

      • Key resources in context of shrinking finances
