Subject: Remotely Sensed Data Indexes Data Standard Version 1.0

This Information Bulletin announces the availability of the new Remotely Sensed Data Indexes (RSI) Spatial Data Standard.

This theme depicts the spatial coverage of remotely sensed data on the earth surface. Remotely sensed data includes panchromatic, multi-spectral, and hyperspectral images and elevation or bathymetric data obtained through Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), Radio Detection and Ranging (RADAR), or through other sensors.

This data is used for describing and locating remotely sensed data from imagery and elevation acquisition projects. Layer files are used to simplify searches by such means as lumping photography by decades or separating projects with large footprints.

The draft data standard was issued for internal review and comment prior to this IB. To see comments and responses of that review, contact Eric Hiebenthal, State Data Administrator, at 503-808-6565, or by email at ehiebent@blm.gov.

Any questions about this data standard can be directed to Corey Plank, State Data Steward and Technical Lead for Remotely Sensed Data Indexes, at 503-808-6145; or Eric Hiebenthal, State Data Administrator, at 503-808-6565.

Administrative or Mission Related: Mission Related.

Districts with unions are reminded to notify their unions of this IB and satisfy any bargaining obligations before implementation.  Your servicing Human Resources Office or Labor Relations Specialist can provide you with assistance in this matter.
