Development of Training Materials for NSDI Support Using Open Geospatial Consortium Standards

Five modules in PowerPoint format were developed to provide guidance for individuals and organizations wishing to serve their transportation data holdings on the worldwide web, in a form compatible with the Framework Data Standard (FDS). The modules include:

- Geospatial Interoperability - Introduction and Overview
- The General Feature Model and Geography Markup Language
- The Framework Data Standard , Part 7: Transportation
- Harmonizing Your Data with the Framework Data Standard
- Serving Your Data Via WFS

Among the project goals was reusability of the framework material. This report contains a guide to the completed materials and the portions that should be changed if they are adapted to address another Theme of the Framework Data Standard.

These slides can be used for self-education, but are also suitable as core material for instructional or workshop venues. This report includes suggestions for augmenting the slide sets with additional material for creation of a complete course of instruction.

Documents contributed by the OGC and OGCii provided much outline material and many of the graphics in the slide sets. The task also required a significant amount of primary authoring in order to provide sufficient detail to be of practical use to implementers.
