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

  • Bridging differences/filling gaps

Analogy the food court at the mall of the universe

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

The Resource Information Management ChallengeWhat is it?

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

2008 GIS & Data Management Conference

  • Digital Information = metadata and associated digital files (e.g., photos, docs., other media and content)

  • Metadata Management

  • Image Management

  • [Published] Document Management

  • Enterprise DIM Repositories (e.g., Data Store, Focus, and E-TIC)

  • Cross-repository Searching

2008 GIS & Data Management Conference


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

2008 GIS & Data Management Conference


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

2008 GIS & Data Management Conference


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
