00:05Hello! Welcome to Data Stewardship in Esri Community Maps.
00:10I'm Tamara Yoder, a geospatial analyst on the ArcGIS Online Content Team.
00:16In this video I will first provide some background . . .
00:19. . . regarding Esri's Community Maps . . .
00:22. . . and next I'll explain the concept of a data steward.
00:25Then we'll discuss data integration, and we'll end with some resources . . .
00:30. . . that are available for your use.
00:33Your organization's authoritative content is the key to building the best online basemaps.
00:40The goal of Esri's Community Maps is to build the best online basemaps . . .
00:45. . . using local, authoritative data . . .
00:48. . . contributed by communities and organizations, like you!
00:54In the context of Community Maps, a data steward is an organization . . .
00:59. . . or, more rarely, an individual . . .
01:02. . . that takes responsibility for the veracity and maintenance of a data layer.
01:07An organization that requests to contribute content to Community Maps . . .
01:13. . . is basically declaring that they are the stewards . . .
01:15. . . of the data layers that they offer to contribute.
01:18As you can see here, the town of Little Elm . . .
01:22. . . the Dutch Kadaster . . .
01:24. . . and Montana State University have all contributed data in their areas of interest . . .
01:30. . . to Community Maps.
01:34With different data stewards submitting layers for contribution . . .
01:37. . . there is the potential for overlap.
01:40In these instances, data integration needs to occur.
01:44Community Maps allows for one data steward per layer, per an area of interest.
01:50In this example, we have a county that contributed roads and vegetation . . .
01:55. . . to Community Maps.
01:58The city then talks to the county and decides that it also wants to contribute layers.
02:03The city contributes buildings, land use and water features.
02:09On the map within the city we'll now see the layers that . . .
02:11. . . both the city and the county contributed.
02:14Outside of the city we will only see the roads and vegetation the county contributed.
02:20There is also a university located within the city.
02:24The university decides to contribute sidewalks, parking lots and trees . . .
02:29. . . to Community Maps.
02:31On the map within the area of the university we'll now see all of the layers contributed . . .
02:37. . . by the university, the city and the county.
02:41We'll see the same layers as before in the city and in the county.
02:46So far, there has been no data steward contributing the same layer . . .
02:50. . . for the same area . . .
02:52. . . so no data integration needed to occur.
02:56Then Bob, a local tree enthusiast decides that he wants to contribute his trees . . .
03:01. . . to Community Maps.
03:03Now data integration needs to occur because Bob would like to contribute a layer . . .
03:07. . . that the university already contributed . . .
03:10. . . for the same area.
03:12He has all of the trees within the university included in his tree layer . . .
03:17. . . and his layer is very accurate.
03:20This tree layer would be a great addition to the map . . .
03:23. . . but Bob isn't the appropriate data steward.
03:26In this instance, we would ask Bob to collaborate with the university . . .
03:31. . . regarding the tree layer . . .
03:33. . . and contribute the layer through the university.
