GIS in Kentucky
  • Commonwealth Office of Technology
    • Office of Enterprise Policy and Project Management
      • Division of Geographic Information


Facilitate statewide electronic geographic data sharing and its application for streamlined decision-making, greater efficiency, public protection, and economic vitality.


The Kentucky

Geography Network


  • Kentucky’s Geospatial Database for Raster data
    • Was collectively built by GIS Staff from several state agencies
    • Resides in mirrored instances at Cold Harbor Computing Center
    • Contains all the aerial images, topographic maps, digital elevationmodels, hillshade, SPOT satellite imagery, trucolor imagery, land cover imagery, slope, and other critical raster GIS base layers
    • Is leveraged by nearly every state agency with a GIS
    • Drives all of the IMS applications served by state government
    • Is leveraged on the GIS Desktop by users in state agencies
components of kyraster
Components of KyRaster

Range from satellite imagery to DEMs to topographic maps to aerial photography

  • Kentucky’s Geospatial Database for vector data
    • Is the master repository of vector-based (lines, polygons, and points)
    • Is based on all vector data that is available on the Kentucky Geography Network
    • Mirrors the categories on the “browse” tab of the KyGeoNet
    • Contains full metadata records for each vector dataset
    • Leveraged by ArcGIS Users on the WAN
    • Leveraged by many IMS
    • Resides in mirrored instances at Cold Harbor Computing Center

existing linkages
Existing Linkages
  • KDLA and Division of Geographic Information (DGI) worked together to schedule two GIS systems
  • KDLA representative on Stewards group of Geographic Information Advisory Council (currently Kentucky Geospatial Board)
  • DGI representative on the Electronic Records Working Group
  • Transfer of spatial data from two periods
expectations scope of work
Expectations – Scope of work
  • Identify archival GIS layers/ applications
  • Examine approach of other states;
  • Install hardware and software;
  • Identify archival meta data including retention for input into clearinghouses
  • Capture selected layers for archiving;
  • Test methods for sharing of data among the states
  • Write a report on findings and experiences
  • Work with Kentucky agencies, governments, and national professional organizations
electronic records work group
Electronic Records Work Group
  • Cooperation of :
    • Libraries and Archives; Technology Units including GIS; Attorney General, Auditor of Public Accounts, universities and local agencies; other selective agencies
  • Standards and guidelines created and promoted
    • General Schedule for Electronic Records
    • E-mail
    • Open records and databases
    • Web record keeping
  • Establishing agreement and


budget allocation
Budget Allocation
  • Travel for several meetings for up to three people as determined 35%
  • Additional storage space on KDLA server (10 terabytes) 40%
  • Graduate student and summer intern for analysis and data entry 15%
  • Division of Geographic Information staff 5%
  • Multi-State Sharing of Data 5%
data grid technology for sharing
Data Grid Technology for Sharing
  • Manage data residing in heterogeneous storage systems
    • Storage repository virtualization
    • Support new storage systems while moving data from old storage systems
  • Manage data distributed across multiple storage systems
    • Data virtualization
    • Replication of data for fault tolerance and disaster recovery
  • Data grids manage information about files as well as the storage
issues to be evaluated
Issues to be Evaluated
  • Metadata standards and clearinghouses
  • What layers have archival value?
  • Best Practice in Data Preservation : Native format vs XML vs static maps
  • Use of Data Grid or some other system for multi-state sharing
