The success of your GIS relies on the decisions of the people managing, creating, and using its applications. A staff development plan is key to ensure your team is equipped with the knowledge and skills it needs to get the most out of your GIS. A scalable, enterprise-level staff development plan will enable your team to maximize the investment in your GIS solution through utilizing education resources to elevate technology knowledge. The plan can directly address needs such as preparing staff to implement new or upgraded Esri technology, cross-training staff to grow knowledge capital within the organization, educating new hires in GIS technology, and supporting projects. Please join this interactive session to meet with a training solutions representative and to realize these key session benefits: identify the appropriate level of training and staff development plan to scale across your organization, understand the importance of assessing your team's GIS skills to prioritize training needs, and merge your organizational goals with your GIS objectives by coordinating with Human Resources and management to deliver comprehensive training options for your team.
ArcGIS Online is a cloud-based, collaborative content management system for maps, applications, data, and other geographic information. With ArcGIS Online, organizations of all sizes can manage their geospatial content and publish their maps, applications, data, and hosted services online. Topics will include the value of ArcGIS Online to an organization, types of data that ArcGIS Online can use, publishing capabilities, and administration of content and users.
Explore the latest Esri tools that bring the power of mapping to everyone in your organization. Whether they are entry-level researchers or senior executives, staff members will be able to add the power of maps to their analyses. We will highlight mapping in Excel with Esri Maps for Office and show how to take your PowerPoint presentations to the next level with dynamic maps. We will also present several scenarios of how agencies can take advantage of Esri Community Analyst to evaluate the impact of programs and policies on citizens.
In this session, we will discuss strategies for making your organization's GIS more relevant and valuable and ready for the twenty-first century. Learn how to do the following: get the most out of the technology you already own, expand the influence of your GIS, keep your GIS current and adapt it to the latest trends, make your GIS an enabling technology, and communicate the value of GIS to your organization.
Managing land records thoroughly and efficiently yields many downstream financial, organizational, and cross-organizational benefits. While assessors work toward this goal, they also struggle to meet citizens' and officials' ever-increasing expectations of quality and transparency of and access to information. Add to that the reality of tight budgets and reduced staff. We'll explore ArcGIS for Land Records and learn how assessors and land-records staff can achieve essential efficiencies and enjoy many new capabilities.
In this session, we will demonstrate how ArcGIS for Water Utilities is designed to support daily business functions with maps and applications that can be downloaded and configured for your organization. ArcGIS for Water Utilities is the part of the ArcGIS for Local Government solution that focuses on water, wastewater, and storm water utilities. It is open, scalable, and interoperable and complies with industry standards. By deploying ArcGIS for Water Utilities, you can manage your water system without costly custom software development.
At ArcGIS 10.1, Esri provides the tools to efficiently visualize, manage, analyze, and share your data in 3D. ArcGIS now reads lidar LAS files natively, thereby providing immediate access to lidar data without the need for conversion. The new LAS dataset allows you to manage, display, and edit your LAS files in a desktop environment. LAS data can also be added to and managed by a mosaic dataset. This session requires basic knowledge of ArcGIS for Desktop.
Managing large collections of imagery can be a challenge for many GIS organizations. Review the image management options in ArcGIS 10.1 and explore the mosaic dataset. Learn how you can serve imagery datasets using ArcGIS Image Extension for Server.
Intended for beginners, this session will introduce Python and its role in ArcGIS. The session will begin with the basics of the Python language and demonstrate some of the key scripting functionality in ArcGIS such as calling geoprocessing tools, using ArcPy listing functions to automate workflows, and getting data properties.
Enable non-GIS users in your organization to perform transportation analysis. ArcGIS for Desktop, ArcGIS for Server, and ArcGIS Online all provide tasks that can be used to perform analyses on street networks and answer diverse questions: What is the quickest way to get from point A to point B? Which houses are within five minutes of a fire station? How do conditions change if a particular street is closed for an event? Which office is closest to a citizen's current location? Which ambulances or patrol cars can respond most quickly to an incident? How can a fleet of service vehicles improve customer service and minimize transportation costs? What are live or historical traffic conditions like, and how do they affect my network analysis results?
ArcGIS 10.1 for Server introduces a new services architecture based on widely adopted web standards that supports richer functionality, simpler installation and administration, and better performance and scalability. You will learn what these changes mean for your existing system and get the information you need to implement a suitable migration strategy for your organization.
An ArcGIS Online subscription facilitates easy collaboration among GIS and non-GIS users alike throughout your organization and makes access to GIS data, maps, and applications available to everyone who needs it, whether in the office or out in the field. This session presents a step-by-step process you can use to help ensure your subscription supports your business needs and key workflows.
ArcGIS for Local Government is based on a harmonized information model of GIS datasets, web services, and maps, bringing your operations to life for your staff and citizens. This session will show how to efficiently move your data into this model so that the available maps and applications will work with your data.
Mobile GIS extends the reach of GIS from the office to the field. By implementing an effective mobile GIS solution, you can improve the efficiency of your field work force as well as the accuracy and timeliness of your geospatial data. During this session, you will learn how to leverage Esri's ArcGIS system to build focused mobile GIS solutions that target the needs of your field work force, others in your organization, and your customers. Topics will include configuring ready-to-deploy applications, as well as building focused applications, using the ArcGIS Software Developer Kits for Windows, Windows Mobile, iOS, Windows Phone, and Android devices.
Your data is likely being shared among departments and even with the public. For this reason, it is more important than ever to ensure the accuracy of your authoritative data. Learn how to use ArcGIS Data Reviewer, for both desktop and server, to help streamline and document the entire quality control process while reducing costs and improving confidence in your data.
ArcGIS provides a foundation for comprehensive emergency management: preparation, mitigation, response, and recovery. To prepare for and mitigate emergencies, ArcGIS can map and model potential disasters to help visualize critical vulnerabilities and consequences of damage. As rebuilding begins, ArcGIS aids local, state, and federal agencies with technology that supports collaboration between multiple agencies. Field data captured with mobile GIS provides the ability to add updates from remote locations for more efficient incident management. It also supplies rapid damage assessment and supports accurate recovery operations. This session will cover best practices and lessons learned from recent events as well as illustrate the use of free templates to implement GIS in support of the emergency management mission.
