OPUS-Projects to the NGS Integrated Data Base Mark Schenewerk [email protected] 816-994-3067 Define bluebooking: bluebook [bloo book] noun The NGS Bluebook is a set of strongly structured data formats. While its origins go back to the late 1970s and early 1980s, it has

been updated and adapted to changes in technology over the years. See also: Input Formats and Specifications of the National Geodetic Survey Data Base. https://www.ngs.noaa.gov/FGCS/BlueBook/ bluebooking [bloo bookiNG] verb To format surveying results following the NGS Bluebook specifications for submission to the Integrated Database (IDB).

2 Bluebooking is integral to NGS tasks. Pros It has been the standard for submissions to the IDB for decades. Many programs are tailored specifically to these formats. Folks are used to it. It has served its purposes very well. Cons It uses 1960s technology. Its detail and complexity are intimidating.

It is time intensive for you. Difficult if not impossible to adapt for the future. April 25, 2017 OPUS-Projects to NGS Integrated Data-Base 3 What is OP2IDB? In 2015, NGS began a project called Deriving a valid path for

OPUS-Projects GPS projects to be loaded to the NGS IDB. That title is a mouthful, so I call it OP2IDB. The project plan in two sentences: Bluebooking is tedious and time-consuming. Demonstrate that, with minimal changes to its web-based Graphical User Interface (GUI), OPUS-Projects can be extended to prepare in toto submissions to the IDB. April 25, 2017 OPUS-Projects to NGS Integrated Data-Base

4 So lets get started. There is insufficient time to describe all changes, so Ill focus on a handful that indicate how users will prepare a project for submission. But first, two quick asides. Some folks wont want to submit their results for publication or their projects wont be appropriate to submit. For them, weve preserved the current OPUS-Projects appearance and

functionality with two exceptions. However, we have enhanced a few functions. OP2IDB doesnt change the requirements for submissions thats for a future step. It does; however, simplify meeting those requirements. April 25, 2017 OPUS-Projects to NGS Integrated Data-Base 5 Accessing the new features.

The first step in preparing a submission to the IDB is the NGS online survey project proposal form. After entering a brief description of the survey project, youre provided a survey project tracking ID to facilitate communication to NGS about your project. OP2IDB uses that tracking ID to tag projects in preparation for submission to the IDB. Eventually, the survey project proposal and OPUS-Projects project creation will be integrated, but for this proof of concept stage, there are two ways to associate a project tracking ID with your OPUS-Projects project.

So, why do OP2IDB? It makes your life easier now: Machines work for you rather than you work for machines. Not once did I mention binary formats of description file or editing bfiles or transforming g-files. All these are taken care of by WinDesc and OPUS-Projects. It makes your life easier later: Re-inventing bluebooking and many of the other changes needed for the new National Spatial Reference System (NSRS) will be hidden behind the user interfaces of tools being developed to support the new NSRS.

April 25, 2017 OPUS-Projects to NGS Integrated Data-Base 20 In other words: We go from you do this to you do this.

NGS still gets this now .... April 25, 2017 OPUS-Projects to NGS Integrated Data-Base but NGS will get this later. 21 Remaining timeline for the project.

Release for internal tests and comments (DEV) early June. Release for external comments (BETA) no sooner than July. Assuming feedback is largely positive, a follow-on project will take OP2IDB from beta to production. April 25, 2017 OPUS-Projects to NGS Integrated Data-Base 22
