GIS Progam Management

Presenter: Pete Croswell, GISP, PMP, CMS, Croswell-Schulte IT Consultants, Frankfort, KY

Today, most government organizations have some type of GIS programs in place. They vary from being in their early stages, to the rebuilding or tuning-up phase, to being completed changed as new technologies and applications emerge. This virtual workshop is designed to provide guidelines for managing your GIS program. It will look at the various organizational and technical issues program managers must address in order to develop a successful GIS program.

URISA's Capablity Maturity Model

Presenter: Greg Babinski, GISP

How do municipalities know where their GIS development is in relationship to potential capability for similar agencies? Some agencies consider their GIS to be ‘mature’ because their implementation project has been completed and they are doing ongoing GIS operations and maintenance. But how do these agencies know if they are lacking basic GIS capability?

Capability maturity models have been used to assess the ability of agencies to develop software successfully. This presentation outlines URISA’s proposed Municipal GIS Capability Maturity Model, discusses results and feedback from applying the model to city and county GIS operations in the Pacific Northwest and nationwide, and suggests future development and application.

This presentation will be of value to managers to self-assess their GIS operation, determine areas for efficiency or effectiveness improvements, assess system risk factors, analyze capability gaps, and prioritize developments required for a mature GIS.

Redistricting in Ohio Enhanced by Public Participation GIS

Presenter: Mark Salling

This educational webinar will present an overview and basic information about state legislative and congressional redistricting, with an emphasis on how GIS data and software are used. It will not be a software training session.

The session will cover concepts that reflect the purpose of the redistricting process, including the principle of one person - one vote, the Voting Rights Act, and the several objectives of ensuing fair representation such as compactness, competition, communities of interest, and representational fairness.

GIS as a Time Machine

Presenter: Peirce Eichelberger

GIS provides new capabilities to show changes over time. The ability to "animate" the changes in geographic locations over short or long time durations can help the viewer better understand the situation or event. The animation can also be used to capture the attention of viewers of all ages much better then static map portrayals. Examples from the Battle of Brandywine from the American Revolution will be used to illustrate these techniques.

Flood Hazards: GIS Applied in the Collection and Dessemination of Spatial Data

Presenter: Alexandra (Diana) Maties

In 2010, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) launched the Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP) program with a vision to: “to deliver quality data that increases public awareness and leads to mitigation actions that reduce risk to life and property”. Risk Map is a nationwide program requiring the collection, organization and dissemination of spatial data from the federal government to state and local governments, planning agencies and private sector contractors. To meet these requirements and further the “one government” approach, FEMA has supported the use of GIS.

I've Seen the Future and it is my Browser

Presenters:Dave Bouman and Brian Noyle

From desktop, to tablets, to mobile devices, HTML is no longer just the language of websites, it is rapidly taking over as the premier way that software is built.  Couple the rise of HTML 5 with the native application market for an increasing number of handheld “post PC era” devices and it becomes clear that the ability to deliver content and application functionality to multiple device form factors will be a technology discriminator for organizations moving forward for the foreseeable future.  The GIS/mapping industry is not immune from these larger industry trends and responsive web design will play a critical role in the future of geospatial applications.

LiDAR Webinar Series

The purpose of this webinar series is to review concepts involving light detection and ranging (LiDAR), its real-world applications, current visualization, data processing and quality control approaches. The target audience of this webinar is at the beginner to intermediate level, including GIS managers, geospatial analysts, survey professionals, scientists and students.

LiDAR is an emerging optical remote sensing technology that uses pulses of light to determine an object’s range and other pertinent information. Most commonly, LiDAR is used to generate terrain products including surface models and elevation contours. LiDAR data is also being used to generate accurate 3D visualizations, which can be used for a variety of planning, engineering and construction activities.
