The many natural disasters that occurred during 2005 provide a compelling reason whyall members of the geospatial community must work together to build effective statewidespatial data infrastructures (SSDI) that serve and protect our citizens. Over the comingdecade, diverse stakeholder groups will have to work closely together if we are toaggregate these SSDIs to complete the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI).Just as the federal government relies on individual states to participate in nationalprograms, the states must rely on all levels of government, academia, utilities, theprivate sector and non-profit organizations to contribute to statewide programs.Strategic planning is a critical element for articulating a shared vision, and for buildingthe partnerships that are necessary for disparate organizations to work together oncommon goals. The key is to identify geospatial needs that are shared by manystakeholder groups. For instance, it is easy to envision that statewide orthoimageryacquired on a routine basis would be useful to almost all stakeholder groups. Effectivestrategic planning is essential for moving collaborative programs forward and gaining therequired support for investments in your SSDI.This project is part of the Fifty States initiative from the Federal Geographic DataCommittee (FGDC). A core component of this Initiative is establishing more formalstatewide geospatial coordination councils that will help to govern and complete theNSDI by enabling all stakeholders. The principal goals of this project are to:
Encourage implementation of statewide spatial data infrastructures througheffective strategic and business planning efforts.
Provide guidance on planning activities.
Encourage the formation of partnerships and alliances that will improve planningprocess.
Provide a uniform national framework for strategic and business plans, so we cancompare and contrast them to reveal national trends.Effective planning is essential for moving collaborative programs forward and obtainingfunding for your SSDI. Several documents have been created to support the geospatialcommunity in these planning efforts, including:
Strategic Plan Template
that provides a process for mapping a clear pathfrom present conditions to a vision for the future.
Strategic Planning Process Map
that divides the process of creating thestrategic plan into five simple steps or phases that are each characterized bycertain activities, tasks, and accomplishments.
Business Plan Template
that provides a detailed description of howobjectives will be achieved, along with the necessary justification for doing them.The Strategic and Business Plan templates each include major section headings withkey information and a series of questions that should be considered. The planning teamwill determine which questions are applicable for their activities and use the answers tothese questions to help draft an effective plan. This structure was developed, because“one size does not fit all” for these plans. While the organizational structure can, andshould be very similar, the specific content of each section will vary for a variety of reasons reflecting the differences in the organizations undertaking the plans.
