1. DESIGN AND PLANNING OF A SOURCE AND PRODUCT GEODATABASE FOR THE HARRIS CORPORATION’S GGI PROGRAM By Andrew Korbel

2. Capstone Proposal Overview Introduction Overview of the Current Source and Product Tracking System Capstone Project Plan and Design Summary

3. Capstone Project Objective The objective of this capstone project is to build a system that can catalog source data and track a product’s status in a geospatially-enabled database Source data can be defined as any geospatial dataset needed to produce a product Examples include various raster and vector datasets such as: Imagery (Commercial & National), various scaled CADRGs and ADRGs, various levels of DTEDs, Geodatabases of Feature Data, Geo-positioning Support Data, etc.

4. Harris Corporation Overview Headquartered in Melbourne, Florida International communications and information technology company Serving government and commercial markets in more than 150 countries. Annual revenue of almost $5 billion 16,000 employees — including nearly 7,000 engineers and scientists.

5. GGI Program Overview Global Geospatial Intelligence Program is contracted by the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA). Production of various raster and vector products. This contract is worth approximately 50 million dollars in invoices per year for Harris.

6. GGI Program Overview Cont’d Within Harris, The GGI Program is split into 2 distinct departments that produce a variety of classified and unclassified raster and vector products. Global - Controlled Image Base (CIB 1m & 5m), Digital Point Positioning Databases (DPPDB), Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) Void Fill Vectors - Topographic Line Maps (TLMs)at various scales, Urban Feature Data (UFD)

7. Current Source and Product Data Management

8. Current Source and Product Data Management Cont’d

9. Current State of Source/Product Database Cont’d CIB 1m records not linked to CIB 5m RecordsCIB 1m records not linked to CIB 5m Records

10. Proposed System

11. What the System Is Not A Traditional Geodatabase A GIS that produces product deliverables An Enterprise GIS

12. Strategic Purpose of the System The creation of this system has been mandated by GGI Program Management. GGI Program will now be responsible for acquiring their own source data needed to produce products. The importance of quickly and accurately knowing what source data is in house or needed to produce a product becomes vitally important to the success of the program in our resource- and time-constrained environment.

13. Overview of Project Proposal Plan I will be developing and managing the creation of the project proposal and pilot project Key contributors to the development of the system will be the Global and Vector’s System Engineers

14. Overview of Project Proposal Plan Cont’d The proposal will take an iterative approach that will include but is not limited too: Developing the objective/description of the project Creating a needs assessment Defining the data and database requirements, Defining the system requirements Developing a cost-benefit analysis, migration strategy, and risk analysis Developing a small pilot project over a study area for proof of concept throughout the entire project planning that will continue after final project plan

15. Needs Assessment Identify the potential users of the system Identify the mission/goal of the system Identify how we track our source data currently and define what the problems are currently with the existing system. Define users requirements for the system being built Produce a Needs Assessment document

16. Data and Database Requirements Define the data required for the system Define the required characteristics needed for the data that will be inputted in the system Identify data conversion requirements needed to produce an integrated and seamless system Define the structure of the required data Define how each source/product will be represented and design the database Produce Data and Database Design document

17. System Requirements System Requirements driven from needs assessment and data and database requirements Define the scope of the system Identify required hardware needed Identify required software needed Identify required networking needed Produce a System Architectural Design Document

18. Cost-Benefit Analysis Identify and calculate costs by year Identify and calculate benefits by year Identify and calculate cost-benefit ratios Produce a Cost-Benefit Analysis document

19. Migration Strategy Identify a strategy Plan sequence of events for migration process Define migration timeline Produce a Migration Strategy document

20. Risk Analysis Identify and define the risks involved in the Implementation of the system Identify how to mitigate the risk Score and summarize the identified risks Produce a Risk Analysis document

21. Pilot Project/Proof of Concept Build feasible pilot project throughout the entire project planning stages – Iterative Approach Identify or create a geographic area that encompasses all source datasets Incorporate product bounding rectangles and how they relate to there source data Perform all use cases for each identified user of the system

22. Project Milestones Complete Needs Assessment and Formal Document – July 20th Complete Data and Database Requirements and Formal Document – August 3rd Complete System Requirements and Formal Document – August 17th Complete Cost-Benefit Analysis and Formal Document – August 24th Complete Migration Strategy and Formal Document – August 31st Complete Risk Analysis and Formal Document – September 7th Complete Formal Design and Project Plan Presentation and Program Management Approval – September 30th Complete Pilot Project/Proof of Concept – November 30th Milestones within the Pilot Project will be developed after the formal design and plan is established

23. Possible Roadblocks/Shortfalls Availability of Resources Getting Program Management/Stakeholders to agree on the proposed project plan due to differing requirements from the different departments Unwillingness to adopt new architecture (hardware/software) Cost associated with new system

24. Capstone Presentation Deliverables Presentation of the project lifecycle - design and planning phases Demo the pilot project which would include how the following teams utilize the system to retrieve required information in order to accomplish their everyday tasks Program Management Team Data Management Team Production Management Team Other Deliverables (Harris Corp.) Formal Design and Project Planning Documents Fully Functional Pilot Project
