Topics

Topics

  • Recovery.gov

  • Data.gov


Georecovery gov

GeoRecovery.gov

  • Supporting the development of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) website – www.recovery.gov

  • Ensuring transparency and accountability

  • GeoRecovery.gov Team

    • Initially organized to support OMB/GSA

    • Transitioned to support the Recovery Act Transparency Board (RATB) that now leads this effort

    • Team members from FGDC member agencies and contractor support


Georecovery gov team

FGDC member agencies

DOI, EPA, DHS, GSA, DOE, USDA, USDA/FS, NPS, NGA, HUD

Providing geo-enabling guidance to Recovery.gov developers (use cases)

Provide support through the FGDC representative on the development team

Respond to requests for subject matter expertise in use-case development, application testing, services identification

August 20th meeting with the new recovery.gov geospatial contractor

Smartronix

GeoRecovery.gov Team


Georecovery gov team1

GeoRecovery.gov Team

GeoRecovery Team provided history of efforts to date

Smartronix reviewed and demoed v2 capabilities

Committed to reaching out to the federal community to leverage expertise and identify requirements through the Team

Holding joint monthly meetings

Interim meetings on specific actions called on an as needed basis

Currently, inbound data is coming from federal systems, not recipients (USASpending.gov for example)

August 27th “sprint” deadline to have recovery.gov v1 capabilities migrated into v2 platform

October deadline to have new site infrastructure in place, 1st geospatial enhancements ready, and begin preparation for handling recipient data


Georecovery gov team2

GeoRecovery.gov Team

Contract reflects a major commitment of recovery.gov to geospatial capabilities

Development and testing being done in a cloud computing environment

Production will be on dedicated servers

GeoRecovery.gov Team to:

Provide information on available federal data services

Identify federal experts to participate in Beta testing

Help identify technical/use issues that need to be addressed

Identify capabilities/data that will increase the site’s usability to the public, federal agencies, constituents

Recovery.gov is being geo-enabled

www.Data.gov

  • Purpose: “… to increase public access to high value, machine readable datasets generated by the Executive Branch of the Federal Government.”

  • Three components

    • “Raw” Data Catalog

    • Tool Catalog

    • Geodata Catalog

      As of late August 2009:

  • Passed the 400 mark on raw datasets available

  • Passed the 200 mark on tools available

  • Continually improving the quality of the existing catalog records to correct minor discrepancies

  • Geospatial items: An interface was deployed to expose geodata.gov metadata that have been flagged by agencies for inclusion (based on meeting quality management principles) allowing approximately 100,000 geospatial data sets to be exposed through data.gov – LEVERAGING EXISTING EFFORTS

Featured Tool:

The MY NASA DATA Live Access Server (LAS), over 149 parameters in atmospheric and earth science from five NASA scientific projects.
