Lightning Talks

As GIS professionals how do we deliver our content and information to the most people, in formats that they will utilize and find useful? For several years the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) has created and distributed paper and PDF versions of the popular MAG Regional Bike Map, also known as the Bikeways Map for the Metro Phoenix Area. This presentation will share how this popular map was converted into a mobile web environment using the ArcGIS API for JavaScript.

To meet the new Federal Highway Administration’s new requirements for an all-public-road linear reference network Arizona Department of Transportation is creating a system to unify various centerlines into one statewide network of roads. The focus of this system is to build a repeatable process using Smart Demarcation points that automate the centerline edge-matching process. In addition to the edge-matching capabilities our focus is to build partnerships with all levels of government and facilitate a mutually beneficial collaboration.


The main aim of this project is to give users the ability to access the University of Arizona Enterprise GIS resources across all devices - Mobile, Tablets and Desktops. Application features functionalities like Search (Search by building names, departments, libraries etc.), Navigation tools, Draw tools, Measure widget, Editing tools and more. The open web application will give access to basic set of tools and campus GIS data. Security is enabled for GIS services and the application, by which the map will redesign itself and provide advanced functionalities to users.

The entire project will be split up in different phases, targeting different set of audiences like Utilities, Emergency response etc. The base data for the campus will be used from UA Enterprise Geodatabase managed by the Department of Planning, Design and Construction. These will be published to ArcGIS Server 10.1 as various types of services (Map service, Feature service and Geoprocessing service). Some of these services (depending on the data) will be secured, which will prevent users from accessing the resources without NetID authentication. Proxy pages are used to provide the back-end authentication to users viewing the secured resources in web app.

A live presentation was given at the event demonstrating adding features and data to forms using digital pen solutions.

Field data collections can capture features and form data that can be sent using Bluetooth, cell phones, iPads and android tablets which eliminates the risk of lost documents. The paper-based field notes provide a hard copy record while at the same time the captured information can be uploaded to the associated digital maps and forms in the office. Map markups are instantly available as point, line, and polygon features in the ArcGIS edit mode for quality control. This can improve collaboration between field and office workers and decision makers and reduce the amount of time required for event response, inspections and daily work flow decisions.

Story maps combine intelligent Web maps with Web applications and templates that incorporate text, multimedia, and interactive functions. Story maps inform, educate, entertain, and inspire people about a wide variety of topics. I’ll discuss the basics of getting started with your own story map and share some success stories from others.


This talk briefly describes the Mesa Geo Rugged Notepad and how it is being used for GIS/GPS field data collection by the Bureau of Reclamation's Phoenix Office.

GeoMattix recently designed a very complex GPS data dictionary for a large project. Typically, Trimble data dictionaries are easy to create. What made this one challenging is that it is for an on-going project so the data dictionary had to be retro-fitted to work with their existing Access database. Also, there were some key players who were vested in the pen and paper method and who were resistant to the whole "GIS thing." In this Lightning Talk, Michele GeoMattix will explore what it takes to create a winning data dictionary without ruffling too many feathers

It has been a challenge to get accurate data, tailored to users’ needs, to people in the field. Predicting which data a person will need to look at makes the use of map books a real challenge and ruggedized laptops are bulky and can be hard to work with. To address this problem, GRICUA and the ISSR developed a simple web application that can be used by field crew with iPads, allowing them to easily view data as they need it. This presentation will look at what was developed, what worked and what can be improved upon.


Asset management and data integration are challenges that every municipal agency faces. Come hear one example of how ADOT’s Feature Inventory System (FIS) is used as a mobile data collection portal for contractor-provided environmental services. Using this system, AMEC Environment and Infrastructure is able to interface directly with departmental data for stormwater field inspections and data collection.
