Public-Private Partnerships: The Key to a Successful Statewide Mapping Program in Massachusetts

Public-Private Partnerships: The Key to a Successful Statewide Mapping Program in Massachusetts Lynn Bjorklund, USGS Brian Wegner, Fugro EarthData CLC Session II - October 7, 2009 2009 Annual Conference, Cleveland OH

Topics History Current cooperative projects Ortho applications Take-home messages: Very successful public-private partnership: MassGIS - USGS - Dewberry - Fugro EarthData Derivative products are huge Applications should drive specs

MA Orthophoto Program pre-1994: mechanical orthos! 4 sets of statewide imagery 1994 - 1999: Black & white film 2001: Color film 2005: Digital camera 4 bands 2008: Digital 3 bands with IR retrofit 2009: Digital 4 bands related products DTM image classification (LULC, impervious)

Orthoimagery Projects with USGS 2008/9 Worcester/Springfield Urban Areas Spring 2009 5700 square miles Total project cost $940,000 Spring 2008 Boston Urban Area Total cost $583,000

2008 – Painful lessons learned 30 Joint funding agreements chasing contributors fiscal year constraints timing payments to match deliverables specs were not what we wanted projection distribution sensitive areas

30 Joint funding agreements

chasing contributors

fiscal year constraints

timing payments to match deliverables

specs were not what we wanted

projection

distribution

sensitive areas

2008 – Some bright spots imagery was superb customers were happy state contributed survey control for 50 pts saved municipalities on buy-ups state got a great product for nothing! estimates were right on USGS staff were incredibly flexible, helpful and patient

imagery was superb

customers were happy

state contributed survey control for 50 pts

saved municipalities on buy-ups

state got a great product for nothing!

estimates were right on

USGS staff were incredibly flexible, helpful and patient

2009 – Much less painful ! set up trust account for payments anticipated timing issues and matched payments to deliverables got commitments in writing early vendor did projection sensitive areas got IR plus retro-fitted for 2008 USGS role saved our agency 30% charge from State Comptroller estimates were right on

set up trust account for payments

anticipated timing issues and matched payments to deliverables

got commitments in writing early

vendor did projection

sensitive areas

got IR plus retro-fitted for 2008

USGS role saved our agency 30% charge from State Comptroller

estimates were right on

Funding Breakdown 2008 30 municipalities $208,000 USGS/NGA $375,000 state (sanity) 2009 13 municipalities $132,000 Westover Air Reserve Base $ 8,000 4 state agencies $630,000 USGS/NGA $170,000

Overall Lessons learned Perseverance furthers! …communication is good Collaborate! Trust, respect and leverage each partner’s roles & expertise At many points the deal could have fallen through

Perseverance furthers! …communication is good

Collaborate!

Trust, respect and leverage each partner’s roles & expertise

At many points the deal could have fallen through

[ a few other nit-picky kinds of ] Lessons Learned Interested municipal partners need cost estimates up front Keep unit costs and area units straight, translatable & adjustible: MassGIS built handy spreadsheet Communicate costs in terms each player understands or needs Fair share estimates municipal area and tile areas Let the vendor do the burdensome stuff, like re-projection and distribution Allow lead time for paperwork such as trust account or other mechanisms requiring multi-agency approvals.

Keep unit costs and area units straight, translatable & adjustible:

MassGIS built handy spreadsheet

Let the vendor do the burdensome stuff, like re-projection and distribution

Allow lead time for paperwork such as trust account or other mechanisms requiring multi-agency approvals.

Why the Governor needs orthos Current applications that are high priorities for Patrick administration wind turbine siting compiling cable maps adjusting population numbers one-stop/on-line permitting environmental regulation enforcement

Current applications that are high priorities for Patrick administration

wind turbine siting

compiling cable maps

adjusting population numbers

one-stop/on-line permitting

environmental regulation enforcement

Wind energy site screening

Image-derived impervious areas provide input for…

Buffer residential structures Impervious surface, with roads erased, overlaid with parcels, provides a quick and effective residential setback for site screening

Broadband availability - building points Broadband initiative aims to analyze service levels down to the individual household. Impervious surface “blobs” shrunk to points provide quick point feature class

Land use change – population update 10 years is a long time – ortho supports updates of land use as basis for revised population estimates – important for formula-based funding

Wetlands regulation enforcement April 2001 Automated change detection identified dozens of violations and led to enforcement actions totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars Earlier photo- interpretation of wetland boundary simplifies change detection

Ortho – ePermitting DEP Site Locator Self-reporting of regulated object locations supports better resource management, such as water budgets, discharge monitoring, evaluation of hazardous material releases etc..

Very successful public n -private partnership Collaboration trusting each partner’s roles & expertise Derivative products are huge Applications should drive specs & deliverables Conclusion

Very successful public n -private partnership

Collaboration trusting each partner’s roles & expertise
