  1. Emerging Use Cases for Networked Coastal Web Atlases(to meet Great Lakes needs) Roger L. Gauthier ICAN – Great Lakes 2010 Workshop Madison, Wisconsin, September 14, 2010

  2. Key Themes: Potential Great Lakes CWA applications   Emerging use cases Resilient coastal communities Coastal habitat restoration progress tracking Great Lakes regional CWA opportunities Follow-on implementation tasks

  3. Potential Great Lakes regional CWA applications

  4. Resource Management Process Schematic Processes to consider, resolution options Management, scientific questions Conceptual framework Problem statement Model processes iteration Hypothesize solutions Scenarios (test management options) Confirm system understanding Calibrate Model Data Risk and uncertainty

  5. Great Lakes Environmental Atlas

  6. Regional Coastal Applications: Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Wetlands protection and enforcement Restoration of fishery habitat Development of effective control strategies for aquatic invasive species Bathing beach management Nutrient management (HABs, algal blooms) Sediment management and control / littoral transport mechanisms Reduction of coastal hazard risks Water level regulation / outflow control Development of climate change predictions and adaptation strategies Border security, search and rescue, spill response and recovery Alternative energy sources GLWQA Implementation and Reporting (LaMPs, AOCs and SOLEC) Integrated Ocean Observing System (GLOS) Great Lakes Protection Fund activities Coastal and Marine Spatial Planning

  7. Goals for a regional CWA Based on fundamental data architecture to enhance regional data management, including discovery, sharing and access Support consistent system-wide geomorphic modeling of erosion, flooding and sediment transport processes Support multi-state wind energy siting/transmission Promote development of ecological prediction tools Support ecological protection/restoration efforts Improve regional management of observational data

  8. Non-Framework Data Imagery Elevation Bathymetry Topography Hydrologic Features Shorelines Rivers, Lakes and Streams Watersheds Transportation Features Political Units Land Cover Framework Data • Shoreline Characteristics • Beach Morphology • Subaqueous Types • Historic Erosion Rates • Predicted Blufflines • Water Intakes / Outfalls / Pipelines • Shore Protection • Navigation Structures • Boat Ramps / Piers / Docks • Environmental Data • Wetlands Extent and Type • Fisheries Data • Exotic and Invasives • Contamination Areas • Economic Features • Parcel Data • Hydrologic Data • Levels, Flows, Datums • Climatic Variables • Hydraulic Characteristics • Circulation Dynamics • Other Themes

  18. Great Lakes regional CWA opportunities

  19. Great Lakes Information Network • Offers a wealth of data and information about the region's environment, economy, tourism, education and more. • Designed and maintained by the Great Lakes Commission • Online since 1994 • 300,000 unique users each month

  20. GLIN - GIS Viewer • Use the GLIN website as the vehicle to promote data discovery and distribution • Use open source libraries as development platform • Use the GLCDM as backend model to drive the discovery/distribution application

  21. Logical Model - ER Diagram Reference Tables HumanInfrastructure/Impact Time-Series NHD Other Natural Resources Shoreline/Classification

  22. Follow-on implementation tasks

  23. Follow-On Tasks Promote development of state/provincial specific CWAs Develop state/provincial standing body to coordinate activities Promote regional standardization of data themes and implementation of industry standards for web exchange Improve regional discovery and dissemination capabilities Work towards interoperability and consistency between national, regional and state/provincial data layers Promote application of standardized data themes in regional process modeling applications Showcase importance of consistent data management to resolve vexing regional problems
