Presentations

Below are the proceedings for the 25 minute presentations given at the 2016 AGIC Education & Training Symposium.

Presentations are listed in alphabetical order by title, with the Keynote presentation at the top.

Some of the issues that Gila River Indian Community (GRIC) encountered were the verification of over 5,000 physical address points, creating address ranges for all road centerlines, verifying that the address points are correctly falling on the road centerlines and the incorporation of new attribute information into the physical addresses and road centerlines feature classes. Another challenge was establishing an updating process to update physical addresses and road centerlines between GRIC GIS and GRIC PSAP.

 

ArcGIS includes a living atlas of the world with ready to use maps and layers from Esri and hundreds of other organizations that users can combine with their own data to create new maps and applications. This presentation will provide an overview of the Living Atlas, Demographic and Lifestyle Data, and how to access this information using applications like ArcGIS Online, Community Analyst, and Business Analyst.

The 3D Elevation Program (known as 3DEP) is designed to help develop new digital elevation geospatial data. 3DEP is the elevation component of The National Map, which helps build and maintain public domain base map data for the nation. 3DEP serves as a national focal point for geospatial communities to work together to generate mission-critical terrain data. The program focuses on building data acquisition partnerships, maintains standards and specifications, has experienced data acquisition contractors, and offers technical expertise. Funds are announced through an annual Broad Agency Announcement, which will be in effect for its third cycle in 2016. This presentation will review the status and goals of the program, prior awards in earlier cycles, and where we are in Arizona in terms of data coverage.

 

Pima County's Development Services Department has a need to route building inspectors on a daily basis. We have created an automated process to created equalized routes for the inspectors using the Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP). A network dataset is created and packaged into a Mobile Map Package using ArcGIS Pro 1.2 and a web-interface is presented for inspectors to find their daily routes to their building inspections. Python programming will be discussed as well as ArcGIS Pro and network dataset creation and maintenance.

 

The Gila River Indian Community’s Department of Land Use Planning and Zoning Flood Control Engineering Section is utilizing GIS to identify and mitigate against flood hazards. A brief presentation on how the use of GIS is integrated with flood control engineering will be the focus along with showcasing real projects associated to development of flood mitigation for the Reservation.

 

GIS is a valuable asset to government work. From providing utility line locations to identifying the width of a roadway to putting together informational brochures for events, GIS provides a wide array of services to a city. Due to the amount of users of GIS information, there are times when requests seem endless with not enough time to meet them all. The Town of Florence GIS Department finds itself in this situation at times, which is amplified by the fact the GIS Department is comprised of one Coordinator supporting most departments and a local population of approx. 25,000. To help relieve some of the demands, the Coordinator found opportunities where some requests could be handled independently, with preliminary work being done in the background. Through the use of JavaScript, CSS, and HTML programming languages, the Town of Florence now has several web based GIS tools which allow the user to identify information that typically would have warranted an email or phone call. Users are now able to obtain their Zoning, Flood Plain, and General Plan designations and conduct basic searches for their property. The creation of these tools has been met with high regard and has acted as a second set of hands alleviating approximately 10 to 20 hours of research each week for staff.

 

Most geo-people believe the Greenwich Meridian to be coincident with the zero longitude meridian. However, when referenced to today's modern global reference frames - notably the World Geodetic System 1984 (WGS84) and the International Terrestrial Reference Frame (ITRF) - there is an offset of over 100 meters between the ground trace, at Greenwich, of the Greenwich Meridian and zero longitude. The technical reasons for this situation include nuances such as the historical use of astronomic coordinates vs. the modern-day use of geodetic coordinates and the honoring of traditional astronomic time measurement techniques and constraints. This presentation will discuss the details that have resulted in this often perplexing characteristic of today’s global geodetic framework.
