GIS coverages, data dictionaries and metadata

  • Coverages have an associated data table


GIS coverages, data dictionaries and metadata

  • Coverages have an associated data table

    • Fish distribution


GIS coverages, data dictionaries and metadata

  • Data Dictionaries

    • “Defines” the codes and abbreviations in the data table


GIS coverages, data dictionaries and metadata

  • Metadata

    • Data “methods”

      • Who created the data

      • What information was included or excluded

      • Where can I obtain the data

      • When, How and Why was it created


GIS coverages, data dictionaries and metadata

  • Coverage/shapefile

    • Map

  • Data Dictionary

    • Defines table codes and abbreviations

  • Metadata

    • Data methods

Mapping Transboundary Data

  • Feasibility

  • Issues

  • Solutions


Mapping Transboundary DataFeasibility

  • Is it possible to map environmental data across boundaries?


Mapping Transboundary DataFeasibility

  • Is it possible to map environmental data across boundaries?

    • Yes


Mapping Transboundary DataIssues

  • Easy (with GIS experience)

    • Different mapping projections

    • Metric vs. standard units of measurement

  • More challenging

    • Different Methods used to obtain similar data

    • Coordinating all the groups to reach a common goal

    • Funding

WA Natural Resources Information Portal

  • “Rolled out” on June 1, 2003

  • It’s a sturdy environmental search engine

  • Data Catalog with summary information, URL (or contact in if not on the web), key theme words, geographic search capability

  • Nadine Romero


WA Natural Resources Information Portal

  • Phase I: State data

    • Currently populating the database

  • Phase II: Federal data

    • Federal agencies can contact NRIP now to post data

  • Phase III: Local data

    • ~September 2003 local groups can contact NRIP to post data


Overview
