Geographic information system for Long Island: An epidemiologic systems approach to identify environmental breast cancer risks on Long Island. Phase 1

Geographic information system for Long Island: An epidemiologic systems approach to identify environmental breast cancer risks on Long Island. Phase 1

Date: December 1, 1995
Creator: Barancik, J.I.; Kramer, C.F. & Thode, H.C. Jr.
Description: BNL is developing and implementing the project ``Geographic Information System (GIS) for Long Island`` to address the potential relationship of environmental and occupational exposures to breast cancer etiology on Long Island. The project is divided into two major phases: The four month-feasibility project (Phase 1), and the major development and implementation project (Phase 2). This report summarizes the work completed in the four month Phase 1 Project, ``Feasibility of a Geographic Information System for Long Island.`` It provides the baseline information needed to further define and prioritize the scope of work for subsequent tasks. Phase 2 will build upon this foundation to develop an operational GIS for the Long Island Breast Cancer Study Project (LIBCSP).

Geographic information system (G.I.S.) research project at Navajo Community College - Shiprock Campus

Geographic information system (G.I.S.) research project at Navajo Community College - Shiprock Campus

Date: December 31, 1995
Creator: Yazzie, R.; Peter, C.; Aaspas, B.; Isely, D. & Grey, R.
Description: The Navajo and Hopi GIS Project was established to assess the feasibility and impact of implementing GIS techology at Tribal institutions. Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories funded the Navajo and Hopi Geographic Information System (G.I.S.) Project and assigned a mentor from LANL to help guide the project for three summer months of 1995. The six organizations involved were: LANL, LLNL, Navajo Community College, Navajo Nation Land Office, Northern Arizona University and San Juan College. The Navajo Land Office provided the system software, hardware and training. Northern Arizona University selected two students to work at Hopi Water Resource Department. Navajo Community College provided two students and two faculty members. San Juan College provided one student to work with the N.C.C. group. This made up two project teams which led to two project sites. The project sites are the Water Resource Department on the Hopi reservation and Navajo Community College in Shiprock, New Mexico.

Geographic Information Systems: Challenges to Effective Data Sharing

Geographic Information Systems: Challenges to Effective Data Sharing

Date: June 10, 2003
Creator: United States. General Accounting Office.
Description: Testimony issued by the General Accounting Office with an abstract that begins "Geographic information systems (GIS) manipulate, analyze, and graphically present an array of information associated with geographic locations, have been invaluable to all levels of government. Their usefulness in disaster response was recently demonstrated during the Space Shuttle Columbia recovery effort. GIS provided precise maps and search grids to guide crews to the debris that was strewn across 41 counties in Texas and Louisiana. The federal government has long been attempting to develop an integrated nationwide GIS network. The information available through such a network could significantly enhance decision--making in myriad public--service areas, including emergency response, national security, law enforcement, health care, and the environment. Among GAO's objectives were to describe the federal government's efforts to coordinate GIS activities, the long-standing challenges of adopting and implementing federal GIS standards, and the role of Geospatial One-Stop."

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Evaluation of Proposed Savannah River Site L-Lake Drawdown

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Evaluation of Proposed Savannah River Site L-Lake Drawdown

Date: March 1, 1998
Creator: Bollinger, J.S. & Dunn, D.
Description: L-Lake was created in 1985 to function as a once-through cooling water reservoir for L-Reactor at the Savannah River Site. The lake must be artificially maintained by pumping water from the Savannah River--at a significant annual cost. When L-Reactor was permanently shut down, studies were initiated to examine the ecological impact of a controlled L-Lake drawdown. An important part of these studies involved using GIS to develop a surface elevation model of the L-Lake floor based on side-scan sonar bathymetry data. The surface elevation model was validated by comparing computed lake volumes with engineering data acquired when the lake was filled. The surface model finally was used to determine the lake bottom slope and to estimate the spatial extent of the lake at various water levels.

Geographic Information Systems-Transportation ISTEA management systems server-net prototype pooled fund study: Phase B summary

Geographic Information Systems-Transportation ISTEA management systems server-net prototype pooled fund study: Phase B summary

Date: June 1, 1997
Creator: Espinoza, J. Jr.; Dean, C.D. & Armstrong, H.M.
Description: The Geographic Information System-Transportation (GIS-T) ISTEA Management Systems Server Net Prototype Pooled Fund Study represents the first national cooperative effort in the transportation industry to address the management and monitoring systems as well as the statewide and metropolitan transportation planning requirements of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA). The Study was initiated in November 1993 through the Alliance for Transportation Research and under the leadership of the New Mexico State Highway and Transportation Department. Sandia National Laboratories, an Alliance partner, and Geographic Paradigm Computing. Inc. provided technical leadership for the project. In 1992, the Alliance for Transportation Research, the New Mexico State Highway and Transportation Department, Sandia National Laboratories, and Geographic Paradigm Computing, Inc., proposed a comprehensive research agenda for GIS-T. That program outlined a national effort to synthesize new transportation policy initiatives (e.g., management systems and Intelligent Transportation Systems) with the GIS-T server net ideas contained in the NCHRP project {open_quotes}Adaptation of GIS to Transportation{close_quotes}. After much consultation with state, federal, and private interests, a project proposal based on this agenda was prepared and resulted in this Study. The general objective of the Study was to develop GIS-T server net prototypes supporting the ISTEA requirements for ...

Geographical Information Systems: Thoughts regarding implementation and transitions between steps

Geographical Information Systems: Thoughts regarding implementation and transitions between steps

Date: June 10, 1996
Creator: Norton, F.J.
Description: Approximately 539 organizations from around the world offer products and services that are related to Geographical Information Systems (GIS). The evolution of the annual GIS industry runs parallel to the development of the GIS in many organizations throughout the world. The GIS field experienced tremendous growth in recent years in response to the expanding information needs of business and government and to technological advances such as faster, cheaper microcomputers, user-friendly desktop software, and low-cost and widely available spatial data. Dataquest, Inc., a computer-industry, market-research firm based in San Jose, California estimates the 1993 GIS hardware and software market at $1.8 billion, up 897% from $177.2 million in 1987. These figures indicate the enormous magnitude of the GIS market without even including vital and growing components such as services (e.g., consulting and integration) or spatial data. The latter part of this paper will address the GIS implementation process. There are many ways to implement GIS within your organization. The transitions between the steps of a GIS implementation project are more difficult than the steps themselves. Yet these transitions are often underestimated or overlooked in the planning process and the management of the project. Transitions in the GIS implementation process must be ...
