resource information management

The Resource Information Management ChallengeWhat is it?

Resource Information Management
  • Not a new idea!
  • A more comprehensive approach
  • Improving coordination, collaboration, and communication
  • Bringing together communities
  • Revisiting requirements
  • Defining services
  • Evolving applications and systems

The Resource Information Management ChallengeWhat is it?

Analogy: The Food Court at the Mall of the Universe
  • Many restaurants with common requirements: tables, chairs, staff, stoves, ovens, food, supplies, etc.
  • A few uncommon ones: flame-broilers, live lobsters, specialty wares (e.g., that wok!), etc.
  • Restaurants/customers come and go, but the infrastructure andpartners are unaffected.

Vision for RIM in the NPS

GIS

  • Well-organized, NPS-wide community
  • Variable program participation

Digital Information Services (DIS)

  • Conceptually two program areas:1. Digital Information Management2. Library Services
  • No well-organized, formal community
  • Many sep. programs efforts

the legacy

The Resource Information Management ChallengeWho’s on First?

The Legacy
  • Many programs and projects have collected resource information
  • Few systematic approaches
  • Many stovepipe applications
  • Much has been lost, orphaned, neglected, or of poor quality
  • Little sharing; much repeated work
  • GIS, I&M, ITC, and TIC initiate data/information management

2008 GIS & Data Management Conference

the stovepipe legacy

National Park ServiceU.S. Department of the Interior

The (Stovepipe) Legacy
  • NPS Data Store (and predecessors)
  • NPS Focus Digital Library and Research Station
  • NPS Voyager Library Catalog
  • TIC Amoeba
  • Bibliographies
    • NR/NatureBib, CRBIB, GRBIB, PaleoBib, others
  • InsideNPS, NPS.GOV, websites
  • NPS Interactive Mapping Center
  • Many other efforts

the present

The Resource Information Management ChallengeWho’s on First?

The Present
  • NPS.GOV’s Photo Gallery
  • NR Integrated Resource Management Applications (IRMA)
  • Resource Information Management Division applications and programs
  • Technical Information Center’s E-TIC
  • Opportunity/Challenge to leverage these projects for a more broadly integrated, customer-focused approach

the future

The Resource Information Management ChallengeWhere is it going?

The Future?
  • Improved communication, coordination and collaboration
  • Sustainable, standards-based data and services
  • Web service tiers on all data resources and repositories
  • Highly adaptable and reusable thin-client user interfaces
  • Formal EA/SOA/ITIL approaches to maximize business value

2008 GIS & Data Management Conference

next steps

The Resource Information Management ChallengeWhere is it going?

Next Steps

Work Toward the Vision

  • Improve governance/communication:
    • Charter the DIS Council
    • Organize DIS Subcommittees
    • Document user requirements
  • Collaborate on Services
