Provide a representation of how the Division of Environmental Protection at NIH is using GIS tools as a method for managing data
Demonstrate a novel method for managing a real-time asbestos management program.
NIH’s Bethesda campus
12.4 Million Square Feet of functional interior space
320 Acres of land
Continuous renovation/modernization activities
Oldest building was constructed in 1938
Supports leading medical research for US and the World
The MAP: Current floor plan with room numbers
Sample creation: Sample points and Building Materials are selected or created depending on the condition of the “as-builts” in the system.
The TOOL: Pull-down menus
Data Entry: Structured from regulatory coding with pull-down menus to limit inconsistency.
Sample points can have 3 photos which are managed by the system and automatically linked.
Building materials have their own buttons and specific information to be collected.
Each homogenous feature connects to a sample point and therefore, lab results and photos.
Data properties for selected samples can be displayed in multiple summary means creating opportunities for quality control of the asbestos management plan.
Electronic lab results of samples received directly from the laboratory are imported and functionally incorporated into the database.
Analysis results can be used in Excel for searching, filtering and reporting.
Specific queries can be run and reports generated yielding real-time documents useable by Project Officers, Facility Managers, and Institutes for planning and budgetary decisions.
Buildings – All facilities constructed before 1990.
Approximately 35 spaces on the Bethesda Campus
Office, Mechanical, and Lab
Completed 10 of 35 spaces
Projected completion is 2012 fiscal
Fully integrate into the Facilities Management Viewer (FMV) with select access capability
Provide asbestos abatement layer to identify areas remediated and the project number.
Create data collection tools for additional legacy hazardous wastes:
Persistent Organic Pollutants
Finish development on DEP programs to support automation with relation to data management.
Spill Response and Countermeasures
Storm Water Management
Fully integrate into the FMV with a “portal” design to provide a seamless front end for users.
