  3. CHARTER The ROGUE JCTD is providing the capability for organizations

    to collaboratively develop geographic feature data and analysis with traditional and non-traditional partners Context: Humanitarian Assistance & Disaster Response Problem Set •  Wide range of partners, including military, inter-agency, NGOs, & nations •  Common situational awareness of the environment is critical •  Partners are distributed and sometimes disconnected •  Responding organizations both need, and can provide a great deal of information •  Partners must have direct access to the technology itself
  4. Distributed Versioned Editing ✦  Highly distributed teams require a different

    approach ‣  Geographic and organizational dispersion ‣  Connectivity not guaranteed ✦  Distributed Versioned Editing allows for many people to: ‣  have their own copy of the data ‣  work in a distributed fashion ‣  sync changes with others ‣  view / accept / reject changes ‣  maintain provenance of data
  5. Distributed Versioned Editing for Geospatial ✦  Potential to improve several

    workflow problems ‣  Multi-user collaboration ‣  Multi-organization collaboration ‣  Volunteered Geo Information vs. Authoritative Data ‣  Low bandwidth and disconnected editing ‣  Provenance
  6. GeoGit http://geogit.org

  7. GeoGit Functionality Overview ✦  Import feature data: Shapefile, OSM, PostGIS,

    etc. ✦  Commit changes ✦  Branch and Merge ✦  Manage merge conflicts ✦  Clone a repository ✦  View history for repository, featuretype or feature ✦  Tag a version ✦  Export, sync, and more
  8. Component! Function OpenLayers! Javascript web map controls for viewing and

    editing data from multiple sources. GeoNode! Provides standardized web access to geospatial data sources & cartographic quality maps. GeoWebCache! Web map accelerator, intelligently caching and serving tiles to make maps scale. GeoServer! Map and feature server providing standardized web access to GIS data sources and cartographic quality maps PostGIS! Open source spatial relational database Distributed Versioned Editing for geospatial data Leveraging the Suite Supports OGC & Industry Standards
  9. Mobile Data Collection ✦  Edit Point Geometry ✦  Edit Point,

    Line, and Polygon Attributes ✦  Associate Photos to Features ✦  Cache an Area of Interest ✦  Map Tiles (OSM as default) ✦  Features from WFS ✦  Sync to GeoServer when connected
  10. Operational Demo #1a Honduras - Sep 2013

  11. Moving Forward ✦  Continued collaboration with COPECO ✦  Incorporation of

    operational feedback ✦  Workflows supporting incorporation of volunteered data into published datasets ‣  Merging contributions ‣  Integrating group management ‣  Conflict resolution ‣  Scalability ‣  Best Practices ✦  Additional Technical and Operational Demonstrations

  14. DisasterAware Ø  Platform for EMOPS and RAPIDS ‣  Worldwide hazard

    tracking & alerts Ø  ROGUE capabilities will augment DisasterAware ‣  Enabling use of VGI with the authoritative information PDC already uses ‣  Enabling sharing between organizations ‣  Providing an open source option to lower cost of DisasterAware deployments to other countries PDC Transition
