Inventorying and Migrating Comprehensive Navy Environmental GIS Data
Authors: Brian Ward, Steven Lathrop, Leigh Ann Wolfe
The US Navy Southwest Regionís GeoReadiness Center was faced with a daunting task: inventory comprehensive environmental data for all installations in the region, and migrate all relevant, authoritative data into the Navyís enterprise data model. Twenty thousand source data files were inventoried, and feature class, attribute, and domain mappings were developed to drive the migration effort. Lessons learned from the inventory and migration of large amounts of unstructured data will be presented.
