Discussion Session -- "Emerging standards for database design and data exchange -- what is appropriate for your agency, your data, and the users of your data?"
We all collect, manage, or distribute geologic map data. Our work may be facilitated or hindered by geologic map database and data exchange standards and guidelines, which have been under development for many years. This discussion is about the future of our data -- how we create and manage it. Maybe your organization has a well-developed and fully functional data model schema, and a splendid work flow. Or maybe you're just developing a data and workflow standard in your organization. Either way, this discussion is about you and your agency's specific requirements and mission.
Moderated by Loudon Stanford (Idaho Geological Survey)     [ Email ]
Community Maps - Implications for the Geologic Community
By Larry Batten (ESRI, Inc.)     [ Slides; Email ]
Discussion Session -- "The FGDC Geologic Map Symbolization Standard -- What are the next steps?"
Collaboration between ESRI, FGDC, and the NGMDB has resulted in release and subsequent update of a subset of the FGDC symbols, created as Cartographic Representations for use in ArcGIS. Revisions to the Standard, and updates to the Arc implementation, are now being considered by the FGDC. In this session, comments and guidance were requested, specifically: (1) whether Arc styles or Cartographic Representations are preferred, or if both are needed now and in the near future, but for different purposes; (2) who can volunteer to help build, or evaluate, the current ESRI set and any new symbols created; and (3) the procedure and schedule for revising the Standard, mostly by adding new symbols. Advice from the DMT meeting and elsewhere will be considered in a FGDC plan to be developed this Summer or Fall.
