INDUSTRY LEAD -
Joe Breman -
The industry lead is an industry manager/disciplinary expert
from ESRI who balances
the perspectives of data producers, data users, and business partners
within the application domain. He/she understands who needs to be
involved in the project so that the important "players" are included
in design decisions. This person also helps to organize meetings and
workshops, ensuring that key players show up or are kept informed.
Our initial industry lead was Steve Grise at ESRI. Joe Breman
is now a GIS architect for Akimeka LLC on Maui, Hawaii.
DISCIPLINE/DOMAIN TECHNICAL LEADS -
Dawn Wright, Oregon
State University and
Pat Halpin, Duke University.
The discipline/domain technical leads
are deeply immersed in the subject matter, and are typically
leaders in implementing GIS projects within that discipline.
They provide technical leadership in the user community
in order to help people understand what is being worked on and
how it is relevant to their organization or research group. The
discipline/domain technical leads need to understand the discipline
well enough to talk about the big issues: i.e., current and evolving
federal standards, typical projects, what should be important features
in the data model design, etc. They are also the design partners
of the ArcGIS technical lead.
ARCGIS TECHNICAL LEAD -
Michael Blongewicz, formerly of DHI-Water & Environment, now with TomTom.
The ArcGIS technical lead
typically maintains the analysis and UML (Unified Modeling Language)
diagrams throughout the life of the project. This person must
have access to all of the tools required for building and testing the
(i.e., Visio diagramming software, ArcGIS,
and ArcSDE), as breakthrough ideas
in a modeling exercise come mainly from hands-on, practical
experience. In collaboration with
the discipline/domain technical leads, this person facilitates
the technical design and reviews of the model, should
intimately understand all of the technical issues involved,
and be able to explain the rationale behind modeling decisions.
KEY TECHNICAL CONTRIBUTORS - Simon Evans, ESRI,
Treml, now at the University of Queensland, and
Marshall, NOAA Coastal Services Center
Key technical contributors provided important,
relevant input and feedback at the initial stages of the project.representing a few different perspectives (for
example, that of developers, consultants, designers, etc.).
INTERNATIONAL REVIEW TEAM - This is the
larger group of reviewers and
participants, representing key interests for all parts of the user
community. Reviewers should represent their personal and organizational
interests, but also the interests of peers who will eventually use
the data model. The review team at the early stages of the project
consisted of (in alphabetical order
with names of those participating in working groups and workshops bolded):
, NOAA National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC)
Lu Crenshaw, Veridian Inc., Global Maritime Boundaries Db
Paul Eastwood, Fisheries GIS Unit, Canterbury Christ Church University
Peter Etnoyer et al., Marine Conservation Biology Institute

CASE STUDY TESTING TEAM MEMBERS -
This group has prepared case study applications of Arc Marine,
using their own data or additional sample geodatabases
as identified on the case study page.
