The Evolution of the Photogrammetry Industry and how Nearmap has Adapted
Limited Capacity seats available

The field of aerial imagery has exploded in the last two decades. Advancements in technology and capture methodology have made aerial images better, cheaper, and more accessible to a wide range of users. Today aerial imagery is used in a number of diverse sectors including engineering, construction, transportation, energy, state and local governments and many more. In this presentation we will provide an overview of the aerial imagery Industry, insights into photogrammetry derived data, and multidimensional data applications, all while showing how Nearmap has been able to adapt and evolve with these changes and improvements.

Transparency Through GIS
Limited Capacity seats available

Governmental transparency provides information to citizens about operations and spending and is key to promote public accountability. As capital improvement projects are a highly visible indication of government spending, it can be effective to provide detailed information about these projects to the public to promote transparency. The City of Concord, CA has recognized the benefits of providing detailed spatial and tabular information to the public regarding capital improvement projects happening in the City. In this presentation, Avineon will demonstrate how this was accomplished using a custom Esri ArcGIS StoryMaps Shortlist app template to serve as a public-facing viewer and a custom Esri ArcGIS Web AppBuilder (Developer Edition) app used to administer its content.

Getting Started with the ArcGIS Utility Network
Limited Capacity seats available

This workshop will walk participants through the Utility Network migration process using sanitary sewer data. The focus will be on four primary stages, which include planning (getting to know the data dictionary and understanding the Utility Network structure), migration (data loading tools and asset packages), creation (staging the Utility Network and applying the asset package), and implementation (publishing the Utility Network and working with Utility Network tools). This is intended to be a basic introduction.

Extending Survey123 with JavaScript
Limited Capacity seats available

Do you ever find yourself frustrated with the limitations of Survey123’s limited calculation abilities? What if you could distill complicated formulas into JavaScript and insert that into your form? What if you could get live weather data, or even ArcGIS Online Data in your form? All of this, and more, is possible with Survey123. A basic understanding of Survey123 and JavaScript is helpful but not required.

Streamlining Project Workflows that Involve Multiple Esri Applications
Limited Capacity seats available

ArcGIS StoryMap Collections offer a simple browser-based solution for our project workflows that involve multiple processes across ArcGIS Dashboard, Survey123, and Experience Builder and allow us to create a one-stop-shop. This new system streamlines previously clunky and confusing methods that required the use of multiple browser tabs and desktop software now into one comprehensive location. Another strength of this solution is that it can be used by any staff, regardless of GIS expertise. This presentation will go into how we are using this framework in several projects across EGLE, including in our Drinking Water and Environmental Health Division to track and evaluate public drinking water concerns and in our Remediation and Redevelopment Division to submit and display our environmental remediation projects. We will discuss how we are utilizing several powerful Esri tools within the Collections as well as how we harness the power of Survey123 webhooks to conditionally send customized alerts to staff. Our solution has greatly increased usability and decreased technical difficulties, and consequently has made both our project staff and GIS teams more efficient and effective.

LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) has fundamentally changed how we view and interpret the landscape and has revolutionized geological mapping. Often subtle features can be seen in the LiDAR topography data that are not visible on aerial photography, topographic maps, or digital elevation models (DEMs). This presentation will show the widely varying uses of LiDAR for geological, environmental, and hydrological applications across Michigan.

Re-integrating Divergent Spatial Data Stores
Limited Capacity seats available

Dominion Energy is a large energy company with a well-developed, Esri-based GIS. To meet regulatory requirements, Dominion developed a Survey123 solution for field asset inspections using a Cloud-hosted snapshot its asset data store. Following deployment, Dominion migrated its asset data store to the Utility Network. This resulted in two competing data stores (one developed through workorder-based data entry and the other on field validation) using different models. This presentation describes Avineon’s approach towards reintegrating these.

Tuesday Morning Keynote - Digging Through History

The Straits of Mackinac is one of the most historic places in Michigan. One of the ways Mackinac State Historic Parks has learned more about the everyday lives of the people there is through archaeological excavation. Colonial Michilimackinac, in Mackinaw City, is the site of one of the longest archaeological excavations in North America. Numerous smaller scale excavations have been carried out on Mackinac Island as well. In this keynote, MSHP Curator of Archaeology Lynn Evans will present an overview of several of these projects.

A Statewide Network for Access to Emergency Management GIS Tools
Limited Capacity seats available

Geographic Information Systems are essential tools for emergency management.  Through mobile applications, dashboards, and imagery, GIS provides data to emergency managers for informed decision making. The Michigan State Police Emergency Management Homeland Security Division has developed a statewide network, using ArcGIS Online, to provide  GIS tools for emergency managers.  One hundred emergency managers across the state have free access  relevant applications available for monitoring and managing emergencies.  This network, developed using the ArcGIS Online platform allows data and applications to flow back and forth from federal, state, and local emergency managers.

Cartography, Hackology, and Geo-shenanigans

Sure, you could make a map the way the software intends, or you could foster a blatant disregard for convention and make the maps you want by misusing tools and stringing together hacks. Here are some ways to use ArcGIS (mostly Pro) to do that. We’ll also discuss helpful ways of transitioning from out old pal ArcMap.

Using Cellphone Data to Understand Spatial Dimensions of Socio-economic Equity
Limited Capacity seats available

Every person experiences physical space differently. Race, gender, and socio-economic status influence how we move and operate in the urban landscape. In this session, I will demonstrate how cell phone mobility data can be used to identify areas with high socio-economic inequality. This method goes beyond census-designated boundaries providing an accurate and granular picture of the relationship between socio-economic status and location. The presentation will use Grand Rapids as a methodological case study.
