Planning the People Aspect of Technology Adoption

In this short video from the 2015 Esri User Conference, senior GIS database administrator Jacob Boyle describes why a workforce development plan is a key element of Seneca Resources Corporation’s ArcGIS adoption strategy. “We didn’t want to just address the needs of the GIS staff, we wanted to address the needs of all GIS users,” said Boyle.

Scott Fraser, CFM
FEMA Coordinator and Floodplain Administrator
City of Key West, Florida

Six months ago, as a new ArcGIS user, Fraser had a lot of questions. Last summer, he attended three Esri instructor-led classes. He brought his list of questions with him.

“I’ve been to a lot of training classes, but can’t say I’ve been to another where I got so much in such a short time,” said Fraser.

Fraser has applied the information he received in class to get an impressive amount of work done.

“I’ve been able to achieve—from my perspective—amazing GIS accomplishments for my community.”

His accomplishments include updated floodplain maps, cleaned-up databases, and, most recently, maps that will assist damage assessment during a flood event.

“[Going to class] opened my eyes to the endless practical and analytical uses GIS offers.”
