What is the GTG?
  • Interagency group created in October 1999
  • Reports to the Information Resource Management
    Working Team (IRMWT) under the National Wildfire
    Coordinating Group (NWCG)

Goals and Objectives of GTG
  • Provide a coordinated interagency point of
    contact for the NWCG IRMWT regarding the use of
    geospatial technology
  • Recommend and review interagency standards and
    processes
  • Encourage and recommend the development of
    geospatial data and applications to support
    interagency fire management

GTG Direction
  • 2001
  • IRMWT gave clear direction to GTG stating that
    the group was not operational, but a standards
    organization

9
Standards
  • Facilitate data sharing
  • Increase interoperability among geospatial
    technologies
  • Standards contribute to making life simpler
  • Increase the reliability and effectiveness of the
    GIS products produced.

10
Data Standards
  • Data layer standards
  • Fire Perimeter
  • Fire history (polygon)
  • Data item standards
  • NWCG Data Administration Working Group
  • http//www.nwcg.gov/teams/pmo/dawg.htm

11
GTG Accomplishments
  • 2002
  • Presented two issue papers to IRMWT
  • Developing an Interagency Standard for the
    Transfer and Documentation of GIS Fire Perimeters
  • A Recommended Approach for Simplifying Wildland
    Fire Occurrence Reporting and Creating GIS Layers
    from Wildland Fire Occurrence Data

12
GTG Accomplishments
  • The National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG)
    Data Administration Working Group approved in
    2006
  • Daily Fire Perimeter Data Layer Standard
  • Fire History Data Layer Standard
  • These standards were developed by the NWCGs
    Geospatial Task Group (GTG) and are an agreed
    upon minimum interagency national standard.

13
GTG Accomplishments
  • The NWCG Geographic Information System (GIS)
    Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) on Incidents
    Project (GSTOP)
  • Details in another presentation

14
GIS Technical Specialist
  • 4 Types of Positions
  • ICS positions
  • Wildfire Skill positions
  • Technical Specialist Positions
  • Wildfire Skill Positions
  • GTG proposed that the GIST be transferred from a
    Technical Specialist position to an ICS position
    with a position task book and required/recommended
    training

15
Geographic Information System Specialist (GISS)
  • Position was included in the 2006 release of the
    Wildland Fire Qualification System Guide, PMS
    310-1.
  • The PMS 310-1 is available on the NWCG
    Publication Management System web page
  • Information about the GISS position can be found
    on page 105 of the PMS 310-1 document.

16
GISS
  • The GISS position has replaced the GIS Technical
    Specialist (GIST) position
  • The GIST position title and code will be made
    inactive in IQCS.
  • The GIST position title and code will no longer
    be used on incident qualification cards or in the
    Resource Ordering and Status System (ROSS).

17
GISS
  • A transition guidance letter has been released
    from NWCG specifying grandfathering procedures
    for the GIST to GISS conversion, and is available
    on the NWCG website.
  • Links to Task Book information are on the GTG
    website gis.nwcg.gov

18
Geospatial Training Advisory Group (GTAG)
  • Mission
  • Enable the efficient transfer of geospatial
    training and technology skills to professionals
    that support ICS.
  • Maintain and raise the quality of geospatial
    intelligence tools and products used to support
  • all-risk incidents.

GAO Report on Geospatial Technologies and
Wildland Fire
21
GAO Report on Geospatial Technologies and
Wildland Fire
  • Recommendations
  • Develop an interagency geospatial strategy for
    effectively using geospatial information
    technologies in all phases of wildland fire
    management
  • Develop an interagency IRM strategy for wildland
    fire management
  • Develop an interagency enterprise architecture
    for wildland fire management

22
NWCG Geospatial Task Groups Geospatial Strategic
Plan
  • The GTG vision is that geospatial technologies
    are pervasive and transparent in wildland fire
    management and that the resulting products and
    services are integral to and enhance decision
    making in all phases of wildland fire management.

23
Strategic Plan Goals
  • DATA Quality geospatial data is easily
    accessible and used appropriately.
  • SYSTEMS Stable, trusted, effective, and
    dependable systems that have a geospatial
    component are available to meet wildland fire
    needs.
  • INFRASTRUCTURE A common interagency
    infrastructure is in place to meet the business
    needs of the wildland fire community.

24
Strategic Plan Goals
  • STAFFING Personnel are willing and able to
    support, maintain, and utilize geospatial
    technologies as appropriate.
  • USE OF NEW PRODUCTS The wildland fire community
    is using the most appropriate geospatial
    technology.
  • COMMUNICATION Effectively communicate wildland
    fire interagency geospatial issues, policies and
    standards.
