Problems a gma solves
Problems a GMA Solves

  • How well is the state doing vswhat is the state doing

  • State to state comparisons; national compilation

  • Objective reporting

  • Platform for communicationand planning

What are we talking about
What Are We Talking About?

  • Measures maturity of 7 sections and related sub-items:

    • People (e.g., GIO, etc.)

    • Data (e.g., elevation status)

    • Processes (e.g., enterprise GIS)

    • Policy (e.g., intergovernmental coordination)

    • Strategy (e.g., portfolio mgmt)

    • Technology (e.g., maps for critical issues)

    • Legal (e.g., public record laws)

Gma mission vision
GMA Mission/Vision

  • Mission:

    • To create a common, credible assessment methodology to routinely and continuously monitor and validate statewide geospatial capabilities

  • Vision:

    • The results of the Annual state Geospatial Maturity Assessments will guide state geospatial investment prioritizations. National compilations are created for national context, visualization and prioritization

What is a maturity model
What is a Maturity Model?

  • A structured collection of elements that describe certain aspects of evolution in an organization

  • A maturity model can be used as a benchmark for assessing different organizations for equivalent comparison*

Other assessment initiatives
Other “Assessment” Initiatives

  • The NSGIC Statewide GMA (included herein)

  • FGDC Lifecycle Management Work Group

  • COGO NSDI Report Card

  • URISA International GIS Capabilities Maturity Model (GISCMM)

Gma intentions
GMA Intentions

  • Model for all states (next generation State Summaries)

    • Supports NSDI

    • Integrates with State Summaries (Next Gen)

    • Can be adaptable

  • Base for scorecard and/or actionable items for each item or category

  • Framework for regional/local governments to leverage

  • National compilation

History evolution of nsgic state summaries
History & Evolution of NSGIC State Summaries

  • 1992-2003: State written reports

  • 2004-2005: Reports based on coordination criteria

  • 2006: Online survey (SurveyMonkey)

  • 2007-2009: Online survey (GISInventory)

  • 2010: Beta GMA (still evolving)

Future vision
Future Vision

  • Statewide GMA becomes compilation of URISA GISCMMs

  • “Nest” COGO NSDI Report Card within GMA Data section or visa-versa

  • GMAs inform GeoLOB Life Cycle Metrics or visa-versa

  • Variety of outputs:

    • (Defensible) Dashboard that can be viewed from National to Local level

    • Reports that categorize information as needed

Possibilities for grant option year 2
Possibilities for Grant Option Year 2

  • Documentation/Training on GMA items

  • “Metric Cards” to support pertinent GMA item(s)
