Enhancement of the Geospatial Data Model Adoption for Emergency Response
Award Number G10AC00229, Category 6: FGDC Standards Development and Implementation Assistance and Outreach
In 2010, Cal-EMA, in partnership with the Homeland Security Regional Technology Center (RTC) housed at San Diego State University Research Foundation (SDSURF), was awarded a USGS National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) Cooperative Agreement Program (CAP) grant in support of the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC). Changing economic conditions and competing priorities have necessitated many changes to this project. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) no longer supports the GeoData Model (GDM), or the application that generated a database schema. The San Diego Regional Technology Center no longer exists, due to lack of funding. Instead, CalEMA will update the skills needed to develop a database schema for incidents.
