1. News

1.1 Karen Siderelis is named USGS Geographic Information Officer

From: Jon Campbell joncampbell@usgs.gov to various lists, November 2000.

U.S. Geological Survey Director Charles Groat announced the appointment of Karen Siderelis as the USGS Geographic Information Officer (GIO) effective November 27, 2000. Siderelis has most recently served as director of the Center for Geographic Information for the state of North Carolina.

The power of place-based information can integrate and enhance all of our science at USGS, Groat said. I am confident that Karen has the technical knowledge, the organizational ability, and the initiative to effectively develop and implement our organizational vision for this new position. The responsibilities of the GIO at the USGS will be similar to those of a Chief Information Officer (CIO), a position mandated for all Cabinet departments and recommended for all federal agencies by the 1996 Information Technology Management Reform Act (ITMRA). The USGS is unique among federal agencies, however, in specifically designating this position as a Geographic Information Officer.

The USGS is widely recognized for providing reliable scientific information, said Groat. By establishing the position of a GIO, we want to fully develop the rich potential of geographic information for integrating our scientific findings and for making our science even more accessible to the public. As the GIO, Siderelis will be responsible for guiding the formulation of agency strategies that will provide innovative information management solutions and ensure the integrity of USGS scientific information. She will ensure that USGS information management policy supports its mission and will provide leadership in coordinating USGS scientific information management with other government agencies.

While serving as director of the Center for Geographic Information for the state of North Carolina, Siderelis managed the state's GIS service center and oversaw the development and maintenance of a statewide geographic database. From 1981 to 1991 she was the director of the Land Resources Information Service of the N.C. Department of Environment, Health, and Natural Resources. She has been a member of the Mapping Science Committee of the National Academy of Sciences since 1994 (vice chair since 1997) and has served on the board of the National States Geographic Information Council since 1993 (president, 1998-99).

Siderelis received a master's degree in park management from the University in Georgia in 1976 and a bachelor's degree in education in 1973 from the University in Georgia. She is a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.

1.2 U.S. Geological Survey Updates

Posted by Rea Mueller 703-648-5954 FAX: 703-648-5939 e-mail: rlmueller@usgs.gov

1.2.1 Subject: DDS-64

The following CD-ROM is now available:

This CD-ROM is a compilation of twenty-nine previously published mineral deposit model and related reports of the U.S. Geological Survey. It, in part, reflects a history of mineral deposit model development within the USGS. Model types presented include descriptive, grade-tonnage, geoenvironmental, and geophysical. These models generally are a compilation of the geologic, geochemical, and geophysical characteristics of various types of metallic and nonmetallic mineral deposits. The models list attributes intended to be guides for resource and geoenvironmental studies and for mineral exploration. The models are presented using the lithologic-tectonic environment mineral deposit classification scheme, originally developed by Cox and Singer (1986).

Reference copies of DDS-64 are available to the ESIC's from Reston. Requests for sales copies can be sent to USGS Information Services, Box 25286, Denver, CO 80225 (FAX: 303-202-4693).

1.2.2 Subject: Disc-on-Demand Distribution

The USGS has announced a new distribution method called disc-on-demand. Disc-on-demand distribution will use CD-R (compact disc-recordable) or DVD-R (digital versatile disc-recordable) technology to make limited-audience publications available and affordable. This distribution service is intended primarily for informal publications such as Open-File Reports that are in electronic format.

Prices for disc-on-demand products have been established as follows:

Disc-on-demand products can be ordered through the mail from USGS Information Services, Box 25286, Denver, CO 80225; through the 888-ASK-USGS toll free telephone number; and by FAX at 303-202-4693. Disc-on-demand products will be orderable online through Earth Explorer later in FY01. ESIC's can place orders for customers through DORRAN using product code PP06. The producing site is RMMC; the producing lab is OF. Please include the Open-File Report number on the order ID line.

Open-File-Reports available as CD-R or DVD-R will be identified as disc-on-demand in the catalog New Publications of the U.S. Geological Survey. The September New Publications lists several Open-File-Reports now available for disc-on-demand delivery see: http://pubs.usgs.gov/publications/

1.3 Dublin Core for cartographic materials

From: Nancy Kandoian (Chair, CCC Task Force on Using Dublin Core for Cartographic Materials) nkandoian@nypl.org to various lists, November 2000.

A task force on using Dublin Core for cartographic materials seeks your input. In January 2000, the Cataloging and Classification Committee (CCC) of the American Library Association's Map and Geography Round Table (ALA MAGERT) created a task force to study the application of Dublin Core to cartographic materials. Specifically, the committee charged the task force with studying how the Dublin Core framework can best be applied to cartographic materials, in particular for cataloging cartographic materials on the Internet. If appropriate, the task force should suggest additions or modifications to the Dublin Core so that it can better describe and provide access to these materials. The task force expects to make its final report to the CCC in January 2001.

The task force welcomes and hereby solicits input from discussion list participants who have created or are creating Dublin Core records for cartographic materials on the Internet. We would appreciate it if you would bring to our attention the issues that you deal with in applying Dublin Core to cartographic materials. What problems do you see? What ways have you devised to deal with special map characteristics? Also we welcome discussion list participants who search for and use Dublin Core records for cartographic materials in public service (e.g. reference librarians), to send us your comments about the usefulness of the records in describing and providing access to maps on the Internet. You may send your comments to me, or to any other task force member named below. Members of the task force, with their e-mail addresses, are as follows:

The task force has a resource person at OCLC, Ellen Caplan caplane@oclc.org, and an ex officio member, Barbara Story bsto@loc.gov, who is chair of the CCC.

1.4 Three new states in India

From: Tsering Wangyal Shawa shawatw@Princeton.EDU to various lists, November 2000.

Three new states were created in India and there are Chattisgarh, Uttaranchal, and Jharkhand. Chattisgarh was created on November 1st out of Madhya Pradesh, Uttaranchal on November 9th out of Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand on November 15th out of Bihar state. For detail administrative maps see http://www.india-today.com/ntoday/extra/remap/chhattisgarh.html

1.5 Microsoft announces that their next office suite will be available through a subscription service

From: Cal Lee calz@umich.edu to various lists, November 2000.

As part of their Office.NET strategy, Microsoft has announced that their next office suite - code named Office 10 - will be available through a subscription service. They plan a release toward the end of the first half of 2001. For more information see: http://www.microsoft.com/PressPass/press/2000/Nov00/SubscriptionPR.aspv

This model still assumes that the software will be installed on the individual workstation. It just gives the user the ability to upgrade the software over the Internet, and Microsoft the ability to shut off most of the functionality of the software if the user fails to renew the subscription (though they can still open, view and print their existing documents).

Microsoft is also planning to offer a license option that is based on hosting the software through application service providers, which will mean that it isn't installed on the users computer but is instead provided as a service when needed from a server over the Internet.

1.6 Free 2000 GIS ToolKit CD

You can be one of the first to receive the Free 2000 GIS ToolKit CD (no shipping charge either)

The GeoCommunity has collaborated with some of the leading software developers in the GIS industry to provide the latest freeware and product demos, conveniently bundled on a CD-ROM and shipped directly to you. All you need to do is fill out a short registration form and we'll send you the GIS Toolkit. Included are products from:
