Information Systems Division

Organization and Mission

During fiscal year 1982, the U.S. Geological Survey made several organizational changes that are intended to increase the effective use of computers and information systems throughout the Survey. Among these were the restructuring of the Computer Center Division as the Information Systems Division, the establishment of an Assistant Director for Information Systems, and formation of a Bureau-level Information Systems Council.

Information Systems Division

The Information Systems Division was established in fiscal year 1982. Its functions incorporate those of the former Computer Center Division, including the operation of the Survey’s general purpose computers and the provision of customer services to users nationwide. Offices within the new Division are Systems Policy and Management, Data Administration, ADP Services, Acquisition Management and Support, Program Support Services, and Operational Systems Support.

Assistant Director for Information Systems

The establishment of the Assistant Director for Information Systems created a focal point for management of Bureau information systems activities and placed the responsibility for developing Bureau Automated Data Processing policy and program leadership in one position.

Information Systems Council

An Information Systems Council, composed of policy-level representatives from each Division and from each field region, was instituted in fiscal year 1982. The purpose of this Council is to recommend policies, to coordinate research and technology, and to provide guidelines for major

computer systems and information management programs and systems for the Geological Survey.

Earth Science Standards

The Office of Data Base Administration has established a comprehensive program for standardizing digital scientific data. In fiscal year 1980, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed with the National Bureau of Standards giving the Survey the responsibility for developing and maintaining earth science data standards for the Federal Government. To accomplish this, a U.S. Geological Survey Data Standards Committee was established to develop and maintain applicable standards. A Department of the Interior Earth Science Data Standards Council has also been established, chaired by the Survey, to coordinate earth science data standards throughout the Department. Standards for hydrologic unit codes have been published and other standards are in process. This program will benefit not only the Survey and the Federal Government but also various scientific, university, and local government groups.

Earth Science Information System

The U.S. Geological Survey is changing from an organization that stored its data in document form, such as tables, maps, charts, or photographs, to one that collects, processes, transmits, stores, and analyzes massive amounts of electronic digital data. To accomplish this, certain basic requirements are needed such as an inventory of data bases and a dictionary-directory of data elements, as well as a data management facility to support standardization and integration. The Earth Science Information System was designed for this purpose.

Acquisition Support

During fiscal year 1982, the Information Systems Division provided a broad spectrum of technical expertise to help process in excess of 3,200 requests from Survey project
