Ronald F. Abler, President

International Geographical Union

Fifth China-US Round Table on Scientific Data Cooperation

Beijing, PRC

27 October 2011

benefits of data exchanges
Benefits of Data Exchanges
  • Enrichment of collaborating and third parties
    • CAS-USGS Global Land Cover Initiative
    • PAGER (Prompt Assessment of Global Earthquakes for Response)
      • Did You Feel It? Responses feed into PAGER
    • Mapped Assessments of Reported Intensities, Soil Amplification, Fault and Ground Motions, Seismic Intensity, and Population per Intensity
benefits
Benefits . . .
  • Need comparable utilities that cross all political borders for other disasters, especially floods and atmospheric disturbances
    • ReliefWeb (http://reliefweb.int/)
  • Round Table has taken major steps toward the creation of a locative world
    • Real time locations of all phenomena known by anyone who cares to know, in real time
trends forcing the locative world
Trends forcing the locative world
    • Need to know—creating the global context in which bi- and multi-lateral data exchanges will occur, even as such exchanges build that world
  • Scale extensions for GIS/GIScience
    • Mesoscale origins
    • Microscale needs (indoor)
    • Macro-scale advantages (global)—GSDI
      • Global Spatial Data Infrastructure Association (GSDI) http://www.gsdi.org/associnfo
trends
Trends . . .
  • Democratization of mapping
    • Crowdsourcing (crowd science, citizen science)
      • Astronomy, physics, genealogy
      • Medicine?
    • Peoples Atlas of Chicago
    • OpenStreetMap (OSM) http://www.openstreetmap.org/
      • Collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world
trends1
Trends . . .
  • Democratization of mapping
    • Crowdsourcing . . .
      • Supplements standard and “official” mapping
    • Accuracy and Precision?
      • Remote sensing signatures
        • Several low resolution signatures yield more information than a single high resolution signature
      • Combinatorial power of additional data from different sources
next steps
Next Steps
  • Build on the accomplishments of China—US Roundtable
    • Expanded and new bi- and multi-lateral real time data exchanges
  • Attend to the forces driving the evolution of Spatial Data Infrastructures SDIs at micro-, meso-, and macro-scales
  • Incorporate crowdsourcing and crowd science
    • Key resources in context of shrinking finances
