Gis enterprise goal
GIS Enterprise Goal:

  • To rapidly deploy customized GIS applications using standard and project specific spatial and tabular data to parks and programs to enhance current capabilities.


Spatial database development and user needs
Spatial Database Developmentand User Needs

  • Incorporate:

    • Fire

    • I&M Inventories

    • Vegetation

    • Cultural Resources

    • Park Specific Data

  • Maintain relationships between spatial and tabular data



Spatial database development objectives
Spatial Database Development Objectives

  • Incorporate different data sets

  • Create relationships to external databases

  • Allow for:

    • Concurrent / Single editing

    • Concurrent viewing

    • User accounts (security)

  • Provide database for customized GIS applications and analysis


Natural resources condition assessment and general management planning
Natural Resources Condition Assessmentand General Management Planning

  • NR Condition Assessments

    • In Review:

      • ACAD, GATE, FIIS, SAHI

    • Starting:

      • CACO, BOHA, GEWA, MIMA, SAIR

  • GMPs

    • BOHA, CEBE, FIIS, MORR, SARA

Interagency environmental review
Interagency Environmental Review

  • Identify areas and features of interest within a given radius or contained within a selected feature

  • Data Includes

    • Natural Heritage Areas

    • National Natural Landmarks

    • Major Federal Lands

    • National Register Properties

    • National Historic Landmarks


Current activities and discussion
Current Activities and Discussion

  • VCL prototype applications: Interagency Review, Fire, Interagency Trails and GEWA GMP;

  • Test working with local data on VCL;

  • Continue investigating ArcGIS Server; and

  • Continued development of custom applications with regional and park staff.
