CIP Compliance Automation with Python for the Army National Guard
Authors: Nathan Bost
The National Guard Common Installation Picture (CIP) encompasses a list of over 50 geospatial layers. Each year, states are required to submit a SDSFIE compliant database of their layers to NGB. The SC National Guard has created several python scripts to expedite the CIP data call process. These processes include populating domains, creating primary keys, updating geometry fields, and filling in installation-IDs. These tools aim to reduce human error and data entry while saving significant time.
