5708.2 - Supporting sustainable development with geoinformation management and modern maps: things you hardly consider – A summary of the workshop held 1 July 2017.

Wednesday, July 5
4:30 PM - 4:50 PM
Location: Maryland C

The technological perspective of modern map production involves IT architects, programmers, designers, GI professionals and cartographers. The domains and their knowledge accumulate for the use cases of spatial data acquisition, spatial data mining, spatial information creation and processing as well as geodesign. Whenever one is concerned with geoinformation management and map production procedures, questions for appropriate technologies arise. Is an aimed IT structure good for production? Can the sources be used, combined and analysed? Does the resulting geovisualisation reach the communication aim? Service-Oriented Mapping is one possible paradigm to embed big data and distributed sources in modern map production, without owning the sources. This architecture requires specific tools and procedures in order to be stable and reliable. Beside the technological structures, the aspects of supply chain and GIS capability maturity provide powerful tools to make modern geoinformation management successful, but are hardly considered. A program assessment evaluates a program’s operations and helps managers redirect resources to improve performance. The URISA GMI GIS Capability Maturity Model (GISCMM) assessment tool and service enables organizations to evaluate, visualize, and compare the capability maturity of their GIS programs and operations and understand which areas need improvement. In the pre-conference workshop we discussed and demonstrated the use and results of the GISCMM tool and service. We presented two case studies where supply chain management was used in forensic GIS in South Africa. The one case was the murder of a well-known South African musician and a fraud case involving R42 000 000 (USD 3 100 000). The conference presentation summarizes advances made in the pre-conference workshop as well as the two crime cases.
