  1. Natural Resource Information Systems

  2. Objectives • NRIS Water Overview • Spatial Data in NRIS Water • Integration of NHD data

  3. What is NRIS? • NRIS is . . . a suite of databases and computer application products containing spatial (map) and tabular (numbers) data collected and recorded in a consistent manner (protocols).

  4. Corporate Data What is NRIS? • NRIS is designed to: • support field-level users on National Forests • work with a common set of basic data and data standards • provide a common computing environment • deliver access to data used for natural resource decision making to employees, our partners, and the public

  5. NRIS in the Forest Service • NRIS is part of EcosystemsManagementCoordination • NRIS is made up of several modules,each supported by aseparate team

  6. NRIS at Work • Assessments • Planning • Analysis

  7. NRIS at Work • In the Future • Increased integration among NRIS modules • Improved public access to data • Greater interagencycoordination

  8. NRIS Water • Integrated application for supporting the work of field level hydrologists and fisheries biologists • Field collected data • Supports and encourages standardized protocols • Links tabular data to spatial data • Consistent data format for analysis tool development

  9. NRIS Water – AI • Aquatic Inventory • Channel characterization • Fish habitat • Multiple scales • Valley segments • Reaches • Channel units

  10. NRIS Water – AB • Aquatic biota • Aquatic animal occurrence • Fish • Invertebrates • Population estimates • Individual meristics • Lakes and streams

  11. NRIS Water – WIT • Watershed Improvement • Survey of potential sites • Project management • Planning • Budgeting • Implementation • Monitoring

  12. NRIS Water - WUTS • Watershed Uses Tracking System • Water uses • Municipal/rural • Recreation • Stock/wildlife • Water rights • Status/ownership • Adjudications

  13. Computing Environment • Development Platform • UNIX Wide Area Network / PC Desktop Clients • Primary Software • Oracle 7 (Unix) • ARC/Info 7.x (Unix) • Arcview 3.1 (Unix) • User Interface • Oracle Forms (PC Client) • Arcview (Unix) • MS Office (PC Client)

  14. Stream Stream Segment Spatial Data in NRIS Water • Map Features play a primary role • Data is collected on real world features which can be represented in GIS • Primary interface to drill down to data is through Spatial Navigation Watershed (HUC)

  15. Coverages in NRIS Water • Stream (Route LLID) • Waterbody (Polygon) • Watershed (Region HUC4,5,6) • Travel_Routes (Route Road) • WTR_Points (Point) • WI_Polygons (Polygon)

  16. Hydrologic Units (HUC) • The United States is divided into a hierarchy of successively smaller hydrologic units • Each hydrologic unit is identified by a unique hydrologic unit code

  17. Through Forms Hierarchical Tree Control Through ArcView PL/A and extensions HUC Navigation

  19. Spatial Tools - Arcview Project • Interaction of Oracle Forms and ArcView for data display and query

  20. Spatial Tools - Arcview Project • Event creation for linear and point events on streams and roads

  21. Water ArcView Extension Display and query of tabular data SDI Water Tools Arc/Edit interface for water coverages Maintains referential integrity between Info tables and associated Oracle tables Water ArcView Project Spatial Tools for Water V1.1

  22. Spatial Tools for Water V1.1

  23. Stream Based Routes Reach Based Routes Reach 1 Reach 2 Reach 3 Reach 3 Reach 5 A New Spatial Data Model? Stream A Stream B Stream C

  24. Why NHD in NRIS Water? • Consistent Data Model with National Scope • Low resolution data available Nationally, high resolution in development • Vertically integrated data model (streams, waterbodies, points) • Cooperative management • Data Sharing • Application Tools

  25. NHD Spatial Model Existing Spatial Model V1.0 March 2000 V1.2 March 2001 V1.1 December 2000 Future Versions Development Cycle of NRIS Water

  26. NHD in NRIS Water - Issues • Stream Centric Users • New Spatial Data Model • High Resolution Data • Cooperative Data Management

  29. Issues – New Spatial Data Model • Solutions • Agency GIS Core Data Standards • Transition to new model • Tools • Training

  30. Issues – Cooperative Data Management • Solutions • Communication • Editing and Updating • Route Identifier • Value added features

  31. Issues – High Resolution Data • Solutions • Workload • Framework for Partnerships • Contracts

  32. Summary • NRIS Water Overview • Pretty neat stuff • Spatial Data in NRIS Water • Makes NRIS Water neat • Integration of NHD data • Challenges • Makes NRIS Water more than a Forest Service Application
