retaac
RETAAC
  • Renewable Energy ..Transmission Access .. Advisory Committee(parallel to RETI process in California)
  • Provides guidance to Gov. Gibbons on new electrical transmission in Nevada
    • Essential for getting renewables to market
    • Complicated and expensive infrastructure
    • Ultimately affects consumers financially
google
Google
  • Wildly successful Web search engine
  • Free Web-based eMail: gMail.com
  • Popular Web mapping engines
    • GoogleMaps (browser only)
    • GoogleEarth (download)
  • Lesser known applications, free on Web
    • Google Calendar
    • Google Docs
    • Google Sites
cartograph
CartoGraph
  • Innovative, all Web-based GIS/DM system
    • Comprehensive data management
    • Flexible, personalized map composition
    • Easy sharing of both data & maps… Cartographic “YouTube”
  • Connectivity to other GIS approaches
    • ESRI: ArcGIS and ArcView (via shapefiles)
    • Google: Maps and Earth (via KML)
    • coming: MapInfo (via .mid/.mif)
slide5
NBMG
  • Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology:the Federally-mandated “State Survey”
  • Provides cartographic support to State
    • Division of Minerals
    • Division of Emergency Management
    • other offices
  • Special projects for Feds, counties
    • Bureau of Land Management
    • U.S. Geological Survey
    • Washoe, Clark counties
slide6
NBMG
  • Special assignment to RETAAC
    • Established expertise in “things spatial” for Nevada
    • Familiarity with renewables topic through GBCGE
    • Neutral broker among Federal and State agencies, NGOs, commercial interests, and the public
  • Specific duties
    • Assist participants share spatial data
    • Create shared cartographic products
    • Perform spatial data analysis
    • Assist with final publication

RETAAC
  • Charter…”propose recommendations for improved access to the [electrical] grid system by which renewable energy industries can set up and have market access in Nevada and neighboring states.”
    • Phase I Preliminary, reported Dec 2007
    • Phase II Final, report due by July 2009 technical specs in Dec 2008

RETAAC
  • Phase II Participants
    • Federal
      • BLM, DOD, DOE, Fish & Wildlife, Forest Service
    • State
      • DCNR, NDOM, NDOW, NDSL, PUCN
    • NGOs
      • Sierra Club, Wilderness Coalition
    • Commercial
      • Nevada Power, Sierra Pacific, Valley Electric
retaac9
RETAAC
  • Data sharing issues
    • Mix of formats
      • Spreadsheets
      • Paper maps
      • GIS datasets
    • Incompatible projections
    • Large file sizes (too big for eMail)
    • Concerns for propriety & security
      • NDOW: Game habitats
      • NEVP & SPP: Transformer locations

summary
Summary
  • CartoGraph/Google combination
    • Entirely Web-based, easily accessible
    • Excellent data sharing with security, in CartoGraph
    • Custom map making with security, in CartoGraph
    • Enhanced basemaps and 3D, in Google
  • Desired enhancements
    • Unified permissions/security system, a la CartoGraphamong data, docs, maps, and sites, in Google
    • More stable, faster mapping performance in browsers and on-the-fly data generalization in servers

Mackay Geothermal Consortium (MGC)

  • Building on RETAAC but… focused on Nevada geothermal industry
    • Federal & State “framework” datasets
    • GBCGE & NBMG “thematic” datasets
    • Vetted and updated by industry usage
  • Using CartoGraph, optionally Google
  • Funded through grants & subscriptions
  • Organized by Mackay School at UNR
