nSITE provides an integrated, cross-programmatic view of information for sites that are of environmental concern to the agency. Site data from each connected source system is presented as a single record, combining information from multiple program areas to create a holistic view of site activities that have an enviornmental impact.
nSITE is continually updated with activity from each connected program system. This allows the program staff to continue maintaining their data in their source systems, while at the same time keeping nSITE users informed about new activity identified at the site.
nSITE architecture supports the frequent, automated extraction and aggregation of data from every information system in the agency, as well as other Partners' data via the Exchange Network.
nSITE does not manage or impose upon program data – that responsibility stays with the source system. Data is only shared with nSITE users, providing a central location for accessing all the information for a given site.
nSITE incorporates monitoring capabilities that detect and notify staff if data updates being harvested from a program system are disrupted or stagnant.
nSITE automatically adjusts and corrects inconsistent or inaccurate data. nSITE is powerful enough to correct site addresses or improperly formatted site details.
nSITE standardizes information so data types are consistent across all sites, even if the source systems are different.
nSITE employs a sophisticated reconciliation engine that finally makes identifying and resolving cross program duplicate facilities/sites realistic. It employs methods to ensure that the data remains up to date, and duplicate facilities are kept to a minimum.
nSITE presents a single view of a site and all of its environmental interest data from each program interested in the site as a single record and if available, their compliance and enforcement data.
nSITE uses the latest tabular and spatial data web technology to allow an internal user the ability to explore and analyze sites of environmental interest interactively. It was designed to be fast and intuitive – and typically surpasses any such system that individual programs develop for their own staff.
nSITE can be configured to link directly to any existing program web-based data access systems, so that a user can use nSITE to explore and find data, then seamlessly jump to the detailed, regulatory specific data managed within the program systems.
