Background federal geospatial records

Background: Federal Geospatial Records

  • A Federal Record

    • Any piece of information, regardless of form or characteristics, made or received by an agency in course of business

    • That is, or should be, kept

      • As evidence of that activity

      • Because it contains valuable data

        • 44 U.S.C. 3301

  • NARA

    • Provides direction, guidance, and assistance to all agencies in managing their records, and

    • Preserves records with “enduring” value in the National Archives

    • Through lifecycle management of records

National Archives and Records Administration


Background applicable federal directives and guidance

Background:Applicable Federal Directives and Guidance

  • 36 CFR Subchapter B - Records Management

Current standards for transfer of gis records

Current Standards for Transfer of GIS Records

  • Electronic Records Management (ERM) E-Gov Initiative.

    • One of the 24 E-Gov initiatives under the President's Management Agenda

    • Geospatial data records from GIS are a priority electronic records format

  • NARA accepts digital geospatial data fully implementing a non-proprietary, published, open standard.

National Archives and Records Administration


Current standards for transfer of gis records1

Current Standards for Transfer of GIS Records

Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Spatial Data Transfer Standard http://www.fgdc.gov/standards/status/textstatus.html)

  • Geography Markup Language, versions 2 and 3 (Open GIS Consortium). (http://www.opengis.org/docs/02-023r4.pdf)

Genesis of the era program some observations

Genesis of the ERA ProgramSome Observations

While NARA has more than three decades of practical experience in electronic records preservation, there is no single unifying model or applicable technical benchmark for formal technical digital object preservation into perpetuity

Facets of technical issues generally associated with the federal government’s electronic records challenge actually constitute domain specific outcroppings of general problems under active research in computer science and engineering in the operational federal computing context.

National Archives and Records Administration


Era program vision

ERA Program Vision

  • “The Electronic Records Archives will authentically preserve and provide access to any kind of electronic record, free from dependency on any specific hardware or software, enabling NARA to carry

    out its mission into the future.”

National Archives and Records Administration


Nara s electronic records archives strategy

NARA’s Electronic Records Archives Strategy

  • Define the requirements in terms of the lifecycle management of records

  • Find solutions in commercially viable, mainstream technologies being developed to support e-commerce, e-government and the next generation national information infrastructure

  • Align with overall direction of IT in the U.S. Government

Era research mission

ERA Research Mission

  • Attack the critical preservation problem

  • Contribute to mitigation of risks associated with ERA Program, especially with respect to emerging technologies, technology enabled processes and potential costs

  • Contribute to ERA Program Acquisitions, Capital and Strategic Planning Decisions

  • Serve as catalyst in continuing innovation and technology transfer in areas responsive to federal electronic records preservation, management and access

  • Serve as foundation for continuing collaboration

National Archives and Records Administration


Collaboration model

Collaboration Model

  • Build on Existing Foundations

  • Eliminate any reliance on presumed clairvoyance

  • Establish technical testbeds & analytic demonstrations where NARA contributes electronic records or records surrogate test corpora, domain knowledge and funding to ongoing technology research responsive to core interests

Collaboration with the library of congress

Collaboration with the Library of Congress

  • In late 2000, NARA joined with the Library of Congress to develop a joint presentation on critical issues that both institutions face in the area of digital preservation

  • This presentation to the Congress’s Joint Committee on the Library resulted in creation of the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation (NDIIP) Program

  • NARA continues this collaboration with the Library on the NDIIP

  • NARA currently participates in the NDIIP Steering Committee and contributes to the exploration of issues and opportunities that the Library of Congress and other libraries face in this area.
