    meet their own business needs

14
Fifty States Initiative
  • Solid foundation through Strategic and Business
    Plan development
  • Assemble in discrete manageable units
  • Bottom-up approach that is all-inclusive
  • Statewide coordination (not just state agencies)

Templates promote common Strategic Business
Plan development with baselines Measured Results

NSDI Governance
22
NSDI Governance
  • NSGIC members invested significant time to
    develop a recommendation for a new governance
    model for the NSDI
  • Part of the FGDC Future Directions Strategic
    Planning
  • Outgrowth is the National Geospatial Advisory
    Committee (NGAC) which is a Federal Advisory
    Committee that will advise the FGDC through the
    Secretary of Interior
  • Members should be announced next week
  • NSGIC worked with GITA, MAPPS, URISA and NACo to
    support nominees who could work effectively with
    each other and make a difference

23
Imagery for the Nation
24
Imagery for the Nation
  • Organized effort to acquire imagery over the
    entire US
  • Multi-Resolution (6, 1, 1-meter)
  • Repeat cycles of 1 to 5 years depending on
    location and resolution
  • Imagery stays in public domain
  • Consistent national standards (image type,
    quality, format security concerns)
  • States can manage part of the program through
    development of business plans
  • Federal government funds basic program
  • Users fund buy-up options and cost-share on
    high-resolution products

25
Proposed Custodians
  • USGS for High Resolution Portion (6 1) and
    for 1-meter program in Alaska
  • USDA for 1-meter program in all other areas

26
Imagery for the Nation Productsmeet the majority
of local, state and Federal needs
Six Inch GSD
Every 3 Years
Mandatory 50 cost share in Urbanized Areas with
populations gt50,000 and more than 1,000 people
per square mile
27
Imagery for the Nation Productsmeet the majority
of local, state and Federal needs
One Foot GSD
Every 3 Years
CONUS 48 States 50 Federal Funding and
Optional 50 State Funding. Alaska and Insular
Areas are on Population Model.
Variations of coverage and how the 1 program are
funded represent the differences in the evaluated
alternatives.
28
Imagery for the Nation Productsmeet the majority
of local, state and Federal needs
One Meter GSD
Every Year
Alaska and the insular areas are on a different
cycle and Alaska is acquired by USGS.
29
Buy-Up Options
  • Vary according to product type
  • Color Infrared
  • Increased Frequency
  • Increased Footprint
  • Increased Horizontal Accuracy
  • Sampling to Lower Resolutions
  • Increased Resolution (6 to 3 and 1 to 6)
  • Improved Elevation Data Products
  • Remove Building Lean (True Ortho)

30
Evolution of Program
  • First proposed by NSGIC in 2004
  • Committee developed proposal
  • Suggested to Federal Geographic Data Committee in
    September 2005
  • Remanded to the National Digital Orthophoto
    Programs Committee (NDOP) in November 2005
  • Proposal slightly modified through committee and
    supported by NDOP in April 2006
  • USGS and USDA funded Cost Benefit Analysis
    November 2006 through July 2007
  • NDOP Committee unanimously approved Alternative
    4
  • NSGIC attempted to authorize and appropriate the
    1-meter program through the 2007 Farm Bill
    reauthorization and failed
  • Already started to pull the geospatial community
    together for Hill activities in 2008

31
Current Problems
  • Incomplete coverage of the Nation
  • Inconsistent data formats
  • Data access restrictions
  • Poor archival practices
  • Varying quality of products
  • Duplication of effort due to limited coordination
  • Inefficient contracting
  • Poor documentation

32
Future Improvements
  • Solves all the above problemsand more
  • Creates a national aerial imagery program to
    collect and disseminate standardized
    multi-resolution products on set schedules
  • Federal, state, and local partners can exercise
    cost sharing options for any required
    orthoimagery enhancements
  • Provides a reliable business model for
    orthoimagery production
  • IFTN imagery will be placed in the public domain
    and archived for historical purposes

33
Economy of Scale
150 per square mile
100 per square mile
34
Other Direct Benefits of IFTN
  • Eliminates Need at State and Local Level for
  • Procurement and Contract Management
  • Quality Assurance Quality Control
  • Archive and Distribution Systems
  • Results in an additional 17.5 savings when
    applied to the Contracting Costs
  • Frees up staff to do other work
