Outline • Outline • Background • Strategic Aims • Membership • Workshop 3 • Prototype • ICAN Future • Conclusion • Background • Strategic Aims • Current Membership • ICAN Workshop 3 • Interoperability Prototype • Strategic Directions • Conclusion FGDC Marine & Coastal Spatial Data Subcommittee

  3. Background: Intellectual Merit • Outline • Background • Strategic Aims • Membership • Workshop 3 • Prototype • ICAN Future • Conclusion • Issues of regional governance, coordination • Significant capacity, varying approaches • Best practices? • Widespread solutions needed • Access to and documentation of data • Integration of tools • Decision support for coastal mgmt via atlases • “Semantic interoperability” FGDC Marine & Coastal Spatial Data Subcommittee

  4. Emergence of “Coastal Web Atlases” • Outline • Background • Strategic Aims • Membership • Workshop 3 • Prototype • ICAN Future • Conclusion “A collection of digital maps and datasets with supplementary tables, illustrations, and information that systematically illustrate the coast, oftentimes with cartographic and decision support tools, all of which are accessible via the Internet.” (O’Dea et al., 2007) Coastal Zone Management, Governance Governments, NGOs, Citizen Groups FGDC Marine & Coastal Spatial Data Subcommittee

  5. Emergence of “Coastal Web Atlases” • Outline • Background • Strategic Aims • Membership • Workshop 3 • Prototype • ICAN Future • Conclusion Marine Irish Digital Atlas, mida.ucc.ie Oregon Coastal Atlas, www.coastalatlas.net FGDC Marine & Coastal Spatial Data Subcommittee

  6. Oregon Coastal Atlas, USA MIDA, Ireland De Kustatlas, Belgium Magic, UK NOAA Digital Coast, USA And many MORE …

  7. Background: Workshop 1, Cork, Ireland • Outline • Background • Strategic Aims • Membership • Workshop 3 • Prototype • ICAN Future • Conclusion • To create & strengthen relationships between experts in marine & coastal mapping in North America and Europe • To identify state of the art approaches to coastal mapping and informatics FGDC Marine & Coastal Spatial Data Subcommittee

  8. Background: Workshop 2, Corvallis, USA • Outline • Background • Strategic Aims • Membership • Workshop 3 • Prototype • ICAN Future • Conclusion • Improve searches between atlases • metadata to ontologies • Marine Metadata Interoperabilty • Semantic interoperability • Linkages to use cases, communities • Proof-of-concept ontologies & interoperability prototype • Large, collaborative funding proposals FGDC Marine & Coastal Spatial Data Subcommittee

  9. ICAN Strategic Aims • Outline • Background • Strategic Aims • Membership • Workshop 3 • Prototype • ICAN Future • Conclusion • Share experiences and find common solutions to coastal web atlas development • Knowledge portal:Guides, cookbooks, “engines”, discussion boards, code, use cases… • Globally integrate and interoperate among locally-maintained atlases • Inform regional decision- and policy-making across several themes: • Climate change - coastal vulnerability • Coastal governance (boundaries, protected areas, etc.) • Coastal hazards • Population pressures • Marine spatial planning • Resource availability and exploitation FGDC Marine & Coastal Spatial Data Subcommittee
