Description: Technical Report
Abstract: To help the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers manage its substantial investment in geospatial data and systems (GD&S), a review of the current state of GD&S in the Districts and Divisions was needed. The authors surveyed employees involved in GD&S work in multiple functional areas at multiple sites. The survey contained questions on GD&S administration and personnel issues including data management, GD&S maintenance, data libraries, data sharing, and Information Management involvement with GD&S. Other topics areas covered are GD&S workflow and technical issues, including hardware, software, metadata creation and publishing, data storage and distribution, networks, and security. The results of the survey show great differences in the approaches and challenges within the various Districts and Divisions. Many are finding solutions that are shared in this report. The report is written as a manual for managers. Each existing problem is described followed by possible solutions. Seven conclusions and a summary “Manager’s Checklist” of GD&S issues are included.
