Architecture and Technology WG

Doug Nebert, Chair

March 2010

  • Federal Geospatial Roadmap and Implementation Guidance
  • Deployment of the GeoCloud Sandbox Initiative
geospatial roadmap
Geospatial Roadmap
  • Adapted much of the content from the Geospatial Profile to match the ICAM (Security) document structure and Geospatial Platform concept development
  • ICAM document format and scope deemed ideal by FEA PMO and CIO Council
  • Document will be worked through the WG and presented to the CG in detail next meeting
geocloud sandbox initiative
GeoCloud Sandbox Initiative
  • One-year hosting of geospatial data and applications, funded by FGDC, in external Cloud environments
  • Anticipated outcomes:
    • Identify requirements-driven solution architectures for various sized deployments of geospatial data and services
    • Document and assess cost models to support scalability, reliability, and redundancy
    • Expedite FISMA certification and accreditation for agency adoption of packaged solution architectures
    • Support and collect cost comparison information from agencies for existing and externally-hosted Cloud solutions
  • Jan 2010 – Identify geospatial solutions to be hosted (data, compute, applications)
  • April 2010 – Begin acquisition of leased Cloud resources for deployment
  • June 2010 – Deploy agency data/apps into Cloud envt and begin monitoring
  • Feb 2011 – Hold workshop on mid-term Best Practices and capabilities
  • June 2011 – Complete hosting cycle
  • October 2011 – Publish best practices, observations, and recommendations
candidate geospatial applications
USFWS National Wetlands Inventory

Census Bureau TIGER/Line data



USGS National Elevation Dataset

USGS TNM tiled data and viewer

EPA Region 1 Lakes and Ponds data

NOAA Particle Tracking Model

Candidate Geospatial Applications

Notional Cloud Computing Stack

  • GSA will be offering Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions for acquisition
  • This is roughly equivalent to “shared-hosting” of raw computers with an operating system in the Cloud domain
platform as a service paas
Platform as a Service (PaaS)

“A cloud platform (PaaS) delivers a computing platform and/or solution stack as a service, generally consuming cloud infrastructure and supporting cloud applications. It facilitates deployment of applications without the cost and complexity of buying and managing the underlying hardware and software layers.”

The GeoCloud intends to pilot the deployment of candidate services or solutions architectures (suites of software) on top of the GSA IaaS to provide common geospatial capabilities. GSA will venture into PaaS next.


  • GSA “” BPA for Cloud solutions has been canceled and will be re-issued, but not likely in time to support GeoCloud deployment
  • Investigating leasing of commercial and NASA (Nebula) cloud capabilities to host all prospective geospatial deployments
