Where is the Yukon Territory?
The Territory: Population: 31, 600 Landmass: 483, 450 sq km Largest city is Whitehorse population 23, 500 Other 17 communities: Populations vary between 25 to 800 Distance from major cities: 2700 km from Vancouver 3200 km from Los Angeles 1200 km from Anchorage
Yukon Energy, Mines and Resources Library n Territorial Government Research Library n Staff: 3. 6 FTE n Subjects: Mining Engineering, Geology, Oil and Gas, Forestry, Agriculture, Lands n Collections: Aerial photographs, Yukon mining, assessment reports, Maps, Books/reports, Journals n Patrons: Yukon government staff, Federal government staff, consultants, prospectors, students, public
Why try to link GIS with our ILS? n n n Aerial photograph collection became our most heavily used collection Client desire to identify photographs using geographic information (map sheet and/or coordinates) online Our paper flight line indices are in poor shape, cumbersome to use, and must be used in-house Geographic dispersal of the Library’s clients …. and, why not try?
Is graphical searching of an ILS possible? n Has anyone done this before? n n All we found were examples of GIS libraries, no examples of a GIS interface with an ILS Can GIS software communicate with an ILS? n Neither our ILS vendor (VTLS) nor ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute) could answer this question, but both expressed interest in the idea if we pursued the answer
Over a two year time period we: n n n Solicited funds and project support Began digitizing flightlines and photograph points into Arc. GIS Configured an html link to query our ILS using GIS software Catalogued aerial photograph collection by roll number into our ILS Received basic shapefiles for some flightlines and photograph points from the National Air Photo Library of Canada (NAPL) Worked with departmental informatics staff to create and configure IMF interface
What we did to MARC: 086 a [ NTS (National Topographic System) areas] 090 a [Flightlines (as call numbers)] 245 a [common geographic name] h [cartographic material (aerial photography)] 255 a [scale, as per MARC] 300 a [# of remote sensing images] : b [type of image] ; c 25. 4 x 25. 4 cm. 440 a [series “Aerial Photographs”] v [flightline] 500 a [filter and altitude information] 650 [as per MARC] 998 yap
Initial IMF screen:
Selecting area of interest and viewing flightlines:
Using the hyperlink to determine which photo library owns your desired photo:
Next in line … n n Investigating and implementing the new MARC standard for the 034 field in authority records Expanding the options for graphical searching of the EMR Library’s ILS
Possibilities … n. Spatial considerations do not necessarily mean maps n. Areas of interest could vary from atoms to the human body to cities to planets n. Searching a medical library’s collection could look like this:
The possibilities are infinite …
