Managing a Growing Web Presence
Roanoke County has been leading the way for local governments, having long since adopted the ArcGIS for Local Government solutions. The County has not only implemented out-of-the-box solutions, but have also customized some of the Esri templates. This presentation will discuss the process for determining the appropriate web solution, what to consider when customizing templates and how to prevent application fatigue.

Neighborhood Concern Reporting System
Build a modern an enforcement Program in-house, leveraging technologies already in use, at minimum to no cost, while having at its core, spatial awareness and data interoperability. The new system is built around GeoForms, Collector and Microsoft Office, linked with automated Python scripts. The County has increased the number of inspections, decreased the time to close a case, and saved ~250 staff hours a year, while providing more transparency to citizens and better reporting for managers.

CHRIS: Historic Property Management in ArcGIS Online
Agencies need better ways to carry out their preservation missions. From giving researchers access to National Register nominations & photographs, to letting the public explore landmarks – the mission is easier using GIS.
This presentation will discuss how one agency used ArcGIS online, transforming their investment in GIS to serve public & private stakeholders cost-effectively. It will cover collaboration with researchers, data security and GIS-based strategies for Section 106 compliance.

Bridging the Gap between CRM and Esri
This abstract focuses on the MapAnything Connector for ArcGIS’s Click2Create feature. Click2Create is a field mapping tool that maps ArcGIS feature fields to object fields in Salesforce. Users create a field mapping template to describe the relationship between Salesforce objects and ArcGIS features. GIS systems are often siloed from operational data in the CRM and other key business software. The MapAnything ArcGIS Connector allows CRM users to interact directly with ESRI’s GIS platform.

GeoIoT: Innovations for Smart Communities
Geospatial IoT (GeoIoT) is emerging as a standard for organizations to enhance citizen engagement, maximize revenues, while reducing costs and energy consumption. Esri and GISinc have partnered to provide an opportunity to educate organizations on how upgrading their existing platform to ArcGIS Enterprise 10.5 (and beyond) and coupling it with GeoIoT solutions through a series regional GeoIoT seminars. This presentation will provide more awareness on how organizations can implement innovative GeoIoT solutions through location based technology for asset tracking, analytics and wayfinding. The presentation answers the following questions:

GeoIoT
What is IoT?
What is Geospatial IoT?
How does it all work?
Who’s using GeoIoT?
How can GeoIoT support my smart community initiatives?

Leveraging ArcGIS Applications to Enhance Municipal Stormwater Management
The City recently completed a project to update its GIS data to expand and enhance its overall stormwater program. The City leveraged ArcGIS applications including desktop, ArcGIS Online, Collector, and Survey123 to collect, update, and manage data in a cost-effective manner. This presentation will provide best practices and lessons learned from its experience.

Using Web AppBuilder to Track Temporary Water Meter Deployments
The City of Altamonte Springs uses paper work orders to track information about temporary water meters that are loaned to contractors, but for many years, they did not track where the temporary meters were being used. When one employee proposed tracking the meters using a thumbtack map, GIS knew they could offer a better solution. Leveraging Web AppBuilder and its Smart Editor widget enabled the City to build a new dataset which is used to view and query temporary meter deployment locations.

3:00 pm - 4:00 pm Health and Human Services - Healthcare Analyses and Bivariate Mapping (User Presentations)
Room 208 B
A GIS Strategy for Healthcare Improvement
GIS has allowed epidemiologists and physicians to look at metadata not only by visualizing the data over spatial and temporal formats but allowing examination of the correlation between the patient and outside factors. This presentation will generally look at the overall benefit of integrating GIS into the healthcare delivery setting and specifically how GIS can be used to examine patient and demographic correlations and identify emerging public health trends.

Bivariate Mapping of Food Environment Index and Obesity in Florida
Living in food deserts is associated with higher rates of obesity. Bivariate maps were created to visualize the relationship between the food environment index scores created by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Florida obesity rates provided by the 2016 Florida Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. These maps can serve as a tool to identify counties that deviate from the expected pattern of high obesity rates in counties with low food environment index scores.

3:00 pm - 4:00 pm Emergency Management - Response and Mitigation (User Presentations)
Room 209 AB
Utilizing Esri Collector App to Respond to Hurricane Irma in Athens, GA
The ACC Landscape Management Division utilized ArcGIS to inventory damage caused by Hurricane Irma. The Division used phones with the ESRI Collector App to inventory damaged trees and efficiently dispatch crews. Afterwards, FEMA required crew locations and ArcGIS allowed ACC to easily provide that data. FEMA requested addresses for each location, the Forester used Reverse Geocoding Tool to assign addresses to each point. This saved hours of work and provided >$30,000 FEMA reimbursement.
Billy Paugh, Athens-Clarke County Unified Government
GIS and Emergency Management: Working Together
I intend in this session to show examples of mitigation using GIS and working with local Emergency Managers. Map Viewers, drone videos, story maps, map books and data analysis are all being utilized to prepare and recover from disasters. I want to encourage other GIS teams to work with their emergency managers to better prepare the people for unfortunate situations.

GIS for Managers (Esri Session)
GIS for Managers Workshop - As GIS continues to become progressively more integrated into IT mainstream, the managers of these systems have to take a markedly different approach to be successful. The days of simply being able to produce printed maps, static PDFs, or all-in-one mega map sites and declare a GIS as successful have passed. In this session, we’ll discuss how CIOs, government administrators and the public view GIS, and how to take a more modern approach to meeting the needs and expectations of all of these groups. We’ll discuss how to involve executives, generate real citizen engagement, and make sure you’re a key part of your CIO’s vision for IT within the organization.
