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.
