St. Louis County Transcends Terra Firma with Digital Portal

 

“It’s been amazing to see the different uses of the portal by individual users and within departments,” said Jablonsky. “The wealth of data alone has been a valuable resource, breaking down data barriers across all our departments.”

 

The Land Information Portal plays an integral role in the county’s daily operations and serves as a perfect model for any county to replicate. Esri recognized the successful model, honoring the county with a Special Achievement in GIS Award at the 2014 Esri User Conference.

Government Digital Service Design Principles

 

Listed below are our design principles and examples of how we’ve used them so far. These build on, and add to, our original 7 digital principles.

 

1 - Start with needs

2 - Do less

3 - Design with data

4 - Do the hard work to make it simple

5 - Iterate. Then iterate again.

6 - Build for inclusion

7 - Understand context

8 - Build digital services, not websites

9 - Be consistent, not uniform

10 -Make things open: it makes things better

Why GeoPortals are neither an SDI nor a Cyberinfrastructure « Ron Lake, Galdos Systems Inc.

Why GeoPortals are neither an SDI nor a Cyberinfrastructure « Ron Lake, Galdos Systems Inc. | Geospatial technologies | Scoop.it

I have seen many instances lately where an organization starts down the road of developing a spatial data infrastructure (SDI), or a broader cyberinfrastructure, and ends up deploying only a GeoPortal. While the cataloguing of data sets and services is of importance, it hardly constitutes an SDI and, depending on how it is implemented, may not even be a good first step.

 

A 2006 ECAR study defined cyberinfrastructure as the coordinated aggregate of “hardware, software, communications, services, facilities, and personnel that enable researchers to conduct advanced computational, collaborative, and data-intensive research.” Harvey Blaustein, with Sandra Braman, Richard N. Katz, and Gail Salaway, “IT Engagement in Research” (Roadmap) (Boulder, CO: EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research, July 2006), p. 2.

 

We extend the term “cyberinfrastructure” to refer to an assembly of software, with any associated hardware, that facilitates information sharing/exchange and supports the development of applications over a wide area network and involving multiple jurisdictions. If the cyberinfrastructure is primarily concerned with the sharing/exchange of geospatial information, we shall call it a Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI).

 

This blog looks at the functional and architectural requirements of a cyberinfrastructure for information sharing, and compares these requirements with what is offered in a typical GeoPortal.

Hard and Soft Skills in Preparing GIS Professionals: Comparing Perceptions of Employers and Educators

 

Thomas A. Wikle and Todd D. Fagin, Article first published online: 3 NOV 2014. DOI: 10.1111/tgis.12126

 

"Abstract

 

Organizations that hire GIS professionals look for entry-level employees with specialized technical skills but also other competencies such as effective communication and a capacity to think critically and creatively. Indeed, the success of GIS projects and initiatives often depends on individuals who possess a combination of specialized GIS skills and more general competencies that influence their ability to collaborate and manage resources. This article presents findings from a survey of GIS employers and educators concerning the importance of hard and soft skills among entry-level GIS professionals. A key finding is the high level of consistency in ratings assigned by employers and educators concerning hard skills such as data editing and GIS analysis and soft skills including problem solving and adaptability. However, the groups were less similar in ratings assigned to data capture skills, project management, and written/verbal skills. GIS qualifications were also compared, revealing a greater emphasis on internships among educators and higher ratings assigned to academic GIS certificates among employers."
