goal of erma implementation
Goal of ERMA Implementation
  • Assist with response preparedness
  • Assist in coordinating response efforts
  • Define the extent of potential environmental impacts
  • Assist in Response, Recovery, and Restoration
  • Provide assistance in hours, not days!
background history
Background/History
  • Identified need for Web based GIS system that can assist in environmental response efforts and operations (2006 – 2007)
  • ERMA developed by NOAA as a Pilot project in Portsmouth NH with regional stakeholders in 2008 (USGC, EPA, States, NGOs)
  • After successful testing and RRT drills in NH, Caribbean ERMA was developed as a joint response effort with EPA for the Caribbean RRT in early FY 2010
  • Spill of National Significance (SONS) drill in March NOAA expanded the pilot project with assistance from regional stakeholders (ME-DEP, NH-DES, MA-DEP, EPA, and USCG)
  • ADM Allen designated ERMA as the Common Operational Picture (COP) for the Deepwater Horizon Incident June 2010
current erma development
Current ERMA Development
  • New England (SONS)
  • Caribbean – US territories, but expanding upon interest
  • Puget Sound WA – Primarily for evaluating climate impacts but potential to expand
  • Pacific Islands in development
  • Arctic from NOAA OCRM Energy Initiative
  • Lake Champlain in development FY 11 (discussing expansion NJ/ NY harbor with EPA R2)
  • Great Lakes- Funding FY 11

  • Key to development timeline was ERMA Adaptability in scaling:
  • Open Source freeware software that was customizable
  • Had to completely clone backend software architecture to cloned databases after Geoplatform.gov release and redeployed overnight because 3.4 million hits on first day of launch
  • Ability to code for non OGC and customized vendor feeds

ERMA Capabilities
  • Readily accessible from any web browser by customized account access (IE 7+, Firefox, Safari, Chrome)
  • Simultaneous Updating of Data to single database
    • Uploads are location independent
    • Multiple users may add content at the same time
  • Ingest external OGC compliant data feeds (e.g. WMS, GeoRSS, now KML)
  • Developers Can Tailor Data Ingest
    • Non-OGC compliant data can be accommodated (SPOT, Geoforce, Lipsey, Outerlink)
    • Ingest authentication done server side (NAIS, AFF, USCG WMS)

erma dwh lessons learned
ERMA DWH Lessons Learned
  • Non-technical Interface
    • GIS background not necessary to navigate
    • “How to” sessions in command posts to socialize ease of use
    • Success Story – quote from NIC staff “You should see ADM Allen fly around ERMA on the touch table”
  • Scalable Access
    • Quick to stand up foundation
    • Public Facing data needed- Geoplatform.gov/Gulfresponse
    • Varying data access levels based on account type (responder , NRDA, Trustee)
  • Cost Effective due to Open Source Software
  • Customizable Programming & Modular development
