Smartronix reviewed and demoed v2 capabilities

Committed to reaching out to the federal community to leverage expertise and identify requirements through the Team

Holding joint monthly meetings

Interim meetings on specific actions called on an as needed basis

Currently, inbound data is coming from federal systems, not recipients ( for example)

Development and testing being done in a cloud computing environment

Production will be on dedicated servers Team to:

Provide information on available federal data services

  • Purpose: “… to increase public access to high value, machine readable datasets generated by the Executive Branch of the Federal Government.”

  • Three components

    • “Raw” Data Catalog

    • Tool Catalog

    • Geodata Catalog

      As of late August 2009:

  • Passed the 400 mark on raw datasets available

  • Passed the 200 mark on tools available

  • Continually improving the quality of the existing catalog records to correct minor discrepancies

  • Geospatial items: An interface was deployed to expose metadata that have been flagged by agencies for inclusion (based on meeting quality management principles) allowing approximately 100,000 geospatial data sets to be exposed through – LEVERAGING EXISTING EFFORTS
