Lightning Talks

Public agencies and consultancies may be surprised to know that breakthroughs in geoprocessing can yield some very informative data that helps highway engineers -- as well as hiking/cycling enthusiasts -- to have curvature pie wedges and gradient profiles readily available for traffic/highway safety evaluation -- or just for monitoring the climb for the weekend hike/tour. This lightning talk will spark interest in those who didn't know that there is an economical source for turning that wealth of under-utilized GPS data into useful depictions that shed new light on the value of GIS.

As I was working on a recent project I was asked to set up domains for several attributes of a feature class. I noticed that subtypes could be added too. I had never used subtypes. I couldn't find a clear definition or use for them. I sat down and figured them out. During the presentation I will discuss the differences between domains and domain subtypes and show an example of how it is used and set up.

Ryan earned his Bachelor's Degree from Arizona State University in Geography

 

See the steps that the Arizona Trail Association took to provide GIS into the hands of trail users. This talk will show how quick it was to work with interns across the state to setup an ArcGIS Online account, publish GIS online services, authorize online maps, open online maps within ArcGIS Collector App, and download the map for offline use which can be synced once back online.

 

In cases where asset locations are accurate and known, the process of collecting additional attributes doesn't require highly accurate positional tools. In these cases the focus becomes ease-of-use, be mobile and remain connected, and low-cost. We've addressed these challenges by working together with Geodesy, our GIS application vendor, and implementing atypical GIS data-collection tools for our field personnel who need to use GIS without the complexity.

 

As a generation & transmission cooperative, we are challenged with tracking, monitoring, and maintaining assets that don't have physical addresses. To enable field personnel to route quickly to these assets - spread all over Arizona's deserts - a complex road network was built. Together with Geodesy, our GIS application vendor, we've provided our staff with a tool that enable them to easily route from one asset to another. The solution was novel and greatly reduced the scope of effort. The result is an easy-to-use tool that operates quickly and reliably.

Tony Gonzales Memorial Scholarship Winner: The Arizona chapter of the Geospatial Information and Technology Association (GITAz) in conjunction with TerraSystems Southwest, Pima County, and AGIC provide scholarships to Arizona students studying GIS or a related field. This presentation is from one of the 10 student scholarship winners.

Student Scholarship Winners were invited to present their work at the Education & Training Symposium in a short 5-10 minute presentation, or Lightning Talk. Some students are new to the program and were awarded a scholarship based on their enthusiasm and the goals they have set for themselves. Attending the Symposium provides them an opportunity to present their work or to share what they hope to achieve as they pursue a career in geospatial technology. In addition, the opportunity to meet professionals currently working in the field makes this a unique opportunity for these students.

This project uses Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data to assess and visualize change in an urban environment. This is important in the identification of areas of growth and areas of decline. Specifically, LiDAR data from the years 2005 and 2008 are utilized to quantify and visualize change in the buildings in and around The University of Arizona campus in Tucson, Arizona. After the study area is identified, the LiDAR data are filtered based on return type and then converted to rasters. The resultant rasters are manipulated to obtain a new raster displaying the buildings present in 2005, and a similar raster illustrating the buildings present in 2008. Using these rasters and Boolean algebra principles, the rasters are subtracted from one another. The resultant change raster highlights the buildings that demonstrate positive or negative change over the three-year period. Using this method several areas of change were identified and confirmed using orthophotographs. For an area as small as The University of Arizona campus it is relatively easy to see the developmental change over time. However, the real power of this method is realized when applied to large metropolitan areas. New buildings and demolished buildings can be identified with a minimum amount of effort. Patterns of development can be easily seen. City planners and tax authorities will find this method and the information obtained invaluable in developing strategies for growth and revenue generation.
