ArcGIS for Public Works

The purpose of this session is to provide a starting point for public works departments that are interested in updating their current implementation of GIS technology or starting fresh with a new GIS project. Today, public works departments need a geospatial platform that is pervasively available across the utility to support business needs. This platform must provide easy access to maps and information on any device for everyone in the department as well as others they collaborate and communicate with, such as contractors and customers. Public works departments need a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology that can be configured to meet their foundational mapping needs, extendable to support enterprise-wide workflows, support multiple implementation patterns, and have a robust ecosystem of partner solutions and implementers. This technical session will review the strategy and steps for implementing ArcGIS for Public Works, which is based on an agile approach to system implementation. This approach reduces both the cost and time to deploy the system, and is driven by the needs of the organization.

Harnessing the ArcGIS Platform for Planning and Economic Development

The role of GIS in the planning and community development fields has been a steadily growing one over the last decade. Likewise, in economic development, the impact of measuring location is moving beyond the traditional role of simple site selection. However, in many organizations, the tasks where GIS is used are often disparate and not sewn together in a seamless workflow. This means increased opportunities for GIS professionals to better engage and empower planning and economic development professionals. We’ll examine how today’s ArcGIS platform makes better, more sustainable decisions easier to make and to justify for planning and economic development professionals alike.
