Use of peel coat maybe?
5
Harder and harder to keep up with needed revisions
6
Whats Happened to USGS Topographic Maps?
Baltimore, MD
  • Value is eroding rapidly as maps become
    increasingly outdated
  • Divergence between base data and topographic maps
  • Duplication of effort among and between
    geographic information sectors

USGS 1953 PR 1966 1974
Pixxures 2000
(keeping 55,000 maps current!)
7
The National Map Topographic Mapping for the 21st
Century
U.S. Department of the Interior U.S. Geological
Survey
8
Vision for The National Map
  • A seamless, continuously maintained, nationally
    consistent, digital set of base geographic data
  • Developed and maintained through partnerships
  • Available over the Internet 24/7
  • The source for revised topographic maps

9
(hundreds of thousands of published maps since
1879)
10
electronic maps not the only transformation
underway , , ,
4 National Enterprise Programs
. . .One DOI Initiative
Each contributing, but not strategically aligned
11
www.geodata.gov
Geospatial One-Stop
The Government Portal For Geospatial Access
  • Metadata catalog
  • Documentation and Organization
  • Discovery and Access

the directory for NSDI
12
Strategic Alignment of National Programs
A Bold Step . . .
  • Charge from USGS Director, August 2004
  • Strategic Alignment of Activities
  • National leadership of highly visible,
    high-demand geospatial programs
  • Time to bring it all together!

13
NGPO Direction(National Geospatial Program
Office)
  • Unify and simplify
  • Act as one, under one executive
  • (Karen Siderelis, GIO)
  • Contribute to completion of the NSDI
  • Include partners in all aspects
  • Be unconstrained by today or yesterday how we
    look today is not how we will look tomorrow
  • Bias toward action

transformation
14
NGPO Purpose
  • Providing leadership to place geographic
    knowledge at the fingertips of the Nation.

15
Charting the Course
  • Core Team
  • Listening Sessions
  • Study Teams chartered (90-days)
  • Unified Geospatial Enterprise Architecture
  • Geospatial Technology Integration
  • Partnership Offices
  • Unified NSDI Web Presence
  • Measuring Geospatial Investments
  • USGS Geospatial Products and Services

Reports available at www.usgs.gov/ngpo
16
NGPO Strategic Directions
  • Unified Geospatial Enterprise Architecture
  • A System of Systems, a GIS for the Nation
  • Governance Structure for the 21st Century
  • Incentive Based Partnerships
  • Investment Management
  • Revitalized Suite of Products and Services
  • A Tapestry of Base Content

17
A Tapestry of Base Content
  • More than a blanket more than a patchwork quilt
  • Diverse and varied by design
  • Functional and elegant

18
Early Progress
  • Geospatial Enterprise Architecture
  • Approval of Federal CIO council, OMB
  • National Geospatial Technical Operations Center
  • Major geospatial content provider not data
    producer
  • Topo map series and other map products continued
  • GOS-II Portal contract awarded
  • Team awarded (ESRI, IBM, Google)
  • Expansion to include knowledge management
  • Unify Simplify - GOS and TNM
  • One viewer
  • One catalogue
  • One registration

19
A System of Systems
  • A GIS for the Nation
  • Modern, multi-purpose technology
  • Based on national standards
  • Manages the tapestry of content
  • Provides tools for access, discovery and use
  • Supported through incentive-based partnerships
    and sustained Federal funding

  • Transformation
  • Conversion
  • Integration

Controlled access
High-Quality Data Compiled from Local Sources

Charge to USGS Products and Services team
  • Develop a vision for 21st Century USGS geospatial
    products services, (including a next
    generation topographic map series).
  • Examine current USGS geospatial products and
    services and investigate short-term options for
    altering these products and services in light of
    the 21st Century vision.
  • Define the role of USGS, other Federal agencies,
    State and local governments, tribal nations,
    libraries, academic institutions, and the private
    sector in development distribution of USGS
    geospatial products and services (emphasis on the
    next generation topographic map series).
  • Suggest a system to continuously gather
    requirements for USGS products and services from
    the stakeholder community.

22
  • Products and Services Teams Recommendations
  • Derive a USGS-sanctioned, 124,000-scale
    topographic map product from data in The National
    Map.
  • Implement a MOD (Maps on Demand) service working
    with both public and private sector
  • Discontinue distribution of older vintage
    lithographic maps where MOD service exists
  • Institutionalize a Process for Developing New and
    Innovative Services

23
Areas with suitable content
  • Availability of Nationally Consistent Data

24
  • Completion of National Coverages
  • Data Theme Completion Date
  • DEM (10M) 2010
  • Structures 2008
  • Transportation 2008
  • Boundaries 2008
  • NHD 2006
  • GNIS Phase-II finished except
  • Ky 2008
  • NY 2010
  • MI 2011
  • AK 2013

25
  • Issues being addressed
  • Transition strategy concerns
  • Lithographic printing vs. Maps On Demand
  • Look and feel will be different (content)
  • Cost - 7 vrs higher MOD costs (15?)
  • Distribution
  • Private only?
  • Business Partners
  • Library depository program
  • Emergency stock
  • Customer acceptance

26
Product Generation Team for The National Map
The Goal - to generate a near standard USGS
124000 scale content topographic map using
information available through The National Map.

Product Generation for The National Map
28
Product Generation for The National Map
Sonora, Kentucky Sample Minimum Content
No structures, not vegetation! Is this acceptable?
29
Product Generation for The National Map
Harrington, Delaware Sample
Data sets not integrated, not interoperable. . .

Challenge to library community
  • Develop with USGS a working/listening session
    on how USGS can meet your needs
