Spatial Analysis Integration with IBM Watson
Presenter: Steve Hossack
Maricopa County's GIS team developed an innovative solution for the Clerk of the Superior Court that integrates spatial intelligence capabilities with IBM Watson Chat and Voice Assistants. This solution utilizes Esri's Web Application Builder and ArcGIS Map Services to enable spatial analysis capabilities with Chat and Voice Assistants. The Assistants can advise customers of the nearest facility, their wait times, and can provide turn by turn directions though a variety of devices. This solution has allowed the Clerk's Office to streamline their workflows and improve customer experience.
Takeaway: See how an agency can integrate spatial analysis with chat and voice assistants to improve the customer's experience.

Got Open Services, Want Reports, We Got Widgets For That
Presenter: Josh Pope
Interested in making ad hoc custom reports for any given extent in real-time? PAG has developed widgets to support that - to expand the data driven decision-making tools across our organization. Pima Association of Government's Technical Services Team has developed a set of Web App Builder widgets that place exciting functionality in the hands of our subject matter experts (SME). This presentation will go over the three widgets that can consume any open GIS service: Rule Builder, Report Builder and Create Project. These widgets allow an SME to define the summary statistics that a non-SME should consume of their publish service. These rules can also convey assessment thresholds supporting the translation of the aggregated data into meaningful good, fair, and poor categories. The Report Builder widget allows the SME to compile a group relevant rules into a Report. The Create Project widget allows the non-SME audience to consume your curated content for any given event they define.
Takeaway: See how ArcGIS Online (AGO) Widget framework has been utilized to support the evaluation and assessment of geospatial services to produce rules. Understand how collections of these rules in a rule library can be leveraged to produce insightful reports that non-technical users can generate for any given extent
Who should attend:Anyone interested in getting more out of their open services.
Different Types of Data Visualizations: How Are They Used?
Presenters: Sage Donaldson, Karol Francis
This presentation discusses the advantages of using story maps visualizations and dashboard data visualizations to make complex data interactive and available to users who otherwise would not have easy access to this data. Story maps are created to describe variables of the Arizona Department of Transportation reporting and many other topics. This is important in making information more accessible to people outside of a specific industry or project and gives complex data concepts a standardized definition on different subjects. Overall, the implementation of these story maps result in visually appealing, high level, interactive, and data-centric places to find standard information in a digestible way. The use of data visualization dashboards offers a new tool to those needing to reference and use complex data without having to gather the data themselves. These dashboards offer up to date, authoritative and easily manipulated data for many use cases.
Takeaway: The audience will learn the interesting ways ADOT is using data visualizations to standardize, provide information and give users the platform to service themselves to find and manipulate the data and information they may need.
Who should attend: Data analysts, those in the transportation industry, those who work with data visualizations, planners, data collectors.
