GIS In Action 1 (Day 3)
A Roadway Management System
Presenter: Bill Beaver
The county road system is currently two systems that represent its roads. These systems were developed from paper maps and include many inaccuracies including roads that were never developed. The two systems each have their own set of attributes and each is segmented according to its own set of rules. The need for a third way to segment the roads and the fact that many of the roads were originally drawn crudely showed the need for a master road system where fixes to the roadway map can easily be moved into any current or future roadway system. This is the story of our progress so far.
Takeaway: Tips on planning a large GIS project
Who should attend: Anyone interested in a large GIS project
Leveraging AGOL to Streamline MCDOT's Yearly Asset Condition Assessment
Presenter: Christopher Turner
The Maricopa County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) maintains over 2,500 miles of roadways and associated assets. These roadways and assets are constantly facing degrading factors that shorten their structural and functional use. To maintain a certain service level across all assets MCDOT performs a yearly condition assessment. This presentation will review how AGOL was implemented to streamline and improve MCDOT's yearly condition assessment.
Takeaway: Attendees will learn how to leverage AGOL to improve field assessments and clearly communicate project results.
Who should attend: While presentation will have a transportation focus, anyone interested in learning more about Collector, Operation Dashboards, and Story Maps will benefit from this presentation.
From Google Earth to Enterprise GIS - A Small Water Utility Jumps into GIS
Presenters: Chuck Powell, Cathy Kuefler, Theron Mahumed
Avra Water Co-op, Inc. (Avra) is a community owned, not-for-profit, water provider located in Avra Valley which serves over 2600 customers. Avra had Google Earth files of their pipes, hydrants, and meters that their operations team used to locate and manage their assets. Working with WestLand Resources they converted the KMZ, CAD linework, paper as-builts, and spreadsheets to Esri Utility Network. We will look at lessons learned, tips and tricks, and develop a better understanding of how a small utility interacts with Enterprise GIS. With attribute matching of their billing software to mobile applications for the operations and maintenance teams, the new system will help transform their day-to-day operations and better serve their customers.
Takeaway: Look into Esri Utility Network and how a small group can leverage the tools and technology of GIS. Lessons learned along the way when creating Utility Network.
