Assessment Summary

Note: The doughnut charts for Inventory Composition, Public Dataset Status, and Dataset Link Quality are new for this milestone, and they only appear is data are available. For detailed documentation on these charts, please see http://labs.data.gov/dashboard/docs#doughnut_charts. The "Other" category includes URLs that did not provide a response within 5 seconds of the automated crawl, which may indicate a server issue and not necessarily a completely non-working link.

Identified 5 data improvements for this quarter
See below Primary Uses
These are examples of the primary users of U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI). The USGS Water Use Information Program investigates the occurrence, quantity, quality, distribution, and movement of surface and underground waters and disseminates the data to the public, State and local governments, public and private utilities, emergency responders, private sector (Kayakers, Fishing Industry, etc.) and other Federal agencies involved with managing our water resources. USGS data such as this is critical to both planning for and responding to hazards such as tsunamis, and for long-term planning addressing climate change, coastal erosion and ongoing coastal development. Private companies use DOI data in developing new services and products to meet public needs in many areas. While it looks as though these questions may be for internal purposes only, Azavea has endeavored to answer them as they apply to our use of Department of Interior datasets. We hope the information is helpful. Azavea uses the data in a number of contexts, including software development, GIS mapping, and data analytics. From: Parsons Brinckerhoff Parsons Brinckerhoff utilizes these datasets to create 3D models for project pursuits and project management. Uses range from master planning to roadway design. They are highly used resources for data reconnaissance during pursuits as well as the foundation for design on various projects.
See below Value or impact of data
These are examples of the value and impact of U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI). Allows federal, state, and local governments more effective management, monitoring, and planning related to water issues – groundwater, water quality, stream flow, and flooding, and other disasters. This USGS research, in close collaboration with local and state authorities and regional universities, forms the basis for disaster response plans and coastal land use planning. Azavea: In many cases, our work would not be possible or would be significantly reduced in scope or different if the data sets did not exist. As such, they are critical to the success of many of our products and services. Parsons Brinckerhoff: Significant productivity savings. Faster decision-making during the pursuit phase.
See below Primary data discovery channels
Through the DOI data catalog, DOI websites, and data.gov. In addition, through the USGS.gov websites, state Water Offices, state authorities, universities, Press Releases, Fact Sheets, Publications, and Research shared through peer-reviewed literature. This is an ongoing, close relationship with key partners where data is shared and made available in the course of the work. In addition, Azavea subscribes to e-mails, listservs, Twitter and other alerts that keep us apprised of new releases or updates. Further, we regularly sponsor and attend hackathons focused on open data to both share and learn more about available data sources. From: Parsons Brinckerhoff: Datasets are primarily learned by attending professional societies such as; the Transportation Research Board (TRB), International Highway Engineering Exchange Program (IHEEP), Geospatial Organizations; Esri Users Conference, Coalition of Geospatial Organizations (COGO) and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Vendor consultation and basic research on the internet has also led to discovery.
See below User suggestions on improving data usability
Suggestions for improving access and usability of this data has focused around providing additional services for USGS data, including: stream site locations, gauge information, regional local view/subset and various data formats. From: Parsons Brinckerhoff: Standardization, interoperability between datasets
See below User suggestions on additional data releases
From: Parsons Brinckerhoff: Continued refinement on the fidelity/accuracy of the data.
