Overview

Overview

  • Test implementation of the “Minnesota Geospatial Commons”

    • What is it?

    • Who is involved?

    • Why do this?

    • When – timeline?


What is the commons

What is the “Commons”?

  • A single place we all go to find and share geospatial resources

Why joint workgroup

Why Joint Workgroup?

  • Strong support at top and grass roots

    • MetroGIS, DNR, MnGeo, Mn/DOT

  • Previous work by Standards Committee

  • Opportunity to collaboratively develop one web place

Web Services Trust Issues

Broker/Portal Implementation


Why create it

Why Create It?

  • No single web location to find or share geo data in MN

  • Geo apps and web services even less accessible

  • Opportunities to share more directly/effectively behind the scenes

  • Users & Producers want it

    • Survey results of geo data consumers


Why create it user producer survey

Why Create It? User/Producer Survey

  • Nearly 540 respondents; from casual map user to GIS professional

  • Downloading data to use in desktop GIS still common – but increasing need for:

    • Finding data in alternative ways – e.g. Google Search

    • Demand for services, especially geocoding is prominent.

    • Easy linking between services and desktop or web applications


Why commons

Why “Commons”

  • “Portal” = where you find. Belongs to some one else.

  • “Commons” = where you share. Belongs to all.
