Reclamation of Abandoned Mine Sites
The Reclamation of Abandoned Mine Sites (RAMS) project involves the database and web-based application design, and integration of tabular, multi-media, and spatial data for the California Department of Conservation’s (DOC) Division of Mine Reclamation (DMR) Abandoned Mine Lands Program. The goal for the INCATech team is to utilize GIS technology to modernize and enhance the database by storing all relevant AML data, and build a secure web-based front-end application to manage it. The new application will incorporate GIS technologies in use at the DOC for the design and build of a web-based front-end application that will access abandoned mine data located in a new SQL Server database provided by DOC. The INCATech team will design an application that allows the database to be updated through several interfaces as well as 3rd party data collection. This project also includes the development of AML custom reports, advanced reporting functionality that use subsets of data, and reports generated from queries against feature classes.
Personnel Recovery Information System
INCATech provides expertise in enterprise systems engineering development to develop geospatial tools and technologies that enable Joint Personnel Recovery and US Army adaptation to 21st century operational environments. INCATech supports the Joint Personnel Recovery Agency (JPRA) in the development of a personnel recovery information system by providing strategic advice and technical subject matter expertise on key geospatial and enterprise-level database design, database management system, and geospatial data visualization. This project began with a Discovery engagement culminating in an Analysis of Alternatives (AoA) and recommendation for implementation.
Our staff utilizes government-designated private commercial cloud infrastructure and tooling to lead the design and execute the development of systems and web-applications to centralize data collection capability collecting, categorizing, storing, and managing personnel recovery data. The information system is designed to be a highly available/highly accessible repository for archived historical data and current operational data. The information system includes advanced spatial/temporal/thematic search functions designed to generate data visualization reports for a wide variety of audiences.
INCATech’s geospatial expertise enables the project to transform personnel recovery data in disparate unstructured data formats (i.e., Word documents, text transcripts, PowerPoint briefings, etc.) into comprehensive Esri Storymaps web-applications and ArcGIS Enterprise Sites applications using data automation coupled with machine-learning techniques. This contract demonstrates INCATech’s breadth and depth of expertise in geospatial consultative services as well as solution delivery of application development, enterprise systems development, data aggregation and normalization of distributed databases, and cartographic data visualization of meaningful insights via data analytics.
The Department of Defense Mission
The mission of the Department of Defense is to provide the military forces needed to deter war and to protect the security of our country. The national security depends on our defense installations and facilities being in the right place, at the right time, with the right qualities and capacities to protect our national resources. Those resources have never been more important as America fights terrorists who plan and carry out attacks on our facilities and our people. Our military service members and civilians operate in every time zone and in every climate. More than 450,000 employees are overseas, both afloat and ashore.
