Joe Araiza: Smart Communities

Joe Araiza from Esri presented on the idea of Smart Communities and how it can impact local governments moving forward. By incorporating GIS into every facet of government, your organizations can start to look for trends in data and where potential issues may arise. The ArcGIS platform allows organizations unparalleled connectivity and the ability for office, field, and executive staff to communicate with each other in real time when handling projects. Feel free to contact Joe at jaraiza@esri.com with any questions or more information.

Chris Beyett: GeoEvent Server

Chris Colney from Grant County, WI outlines the process of creating Esri web applications from templates, and how it helps him in his position as a GIS Specialist

Esri Solution Engineer, Chris Beyett, spoke with us about the updated capabilities of Esri's GeoEvent Server. Specifically, he touched on the SnowCOP application which runs GeoEvent Server. It's a great way to get up to the minute location based data in real time. In SnowCOP, when a plow drives down a road, the road segment changes colors to reflect that the road is in good standing and is navigable. Feel free to email Chris at cbeyett@esri.com for more information or visit the Esri SnowCOP page HERE.

Jonathan Hodel: What’s new with Parcel Mapping

Jonathan Hodel presented on what is new regarding parcel mapping.  By utilizing the Community Parcels tool in ArcGIS Pro, Jon was able to show the new ability of bringing one set of parcel data (i.e. from a City) and merge it with that of another agency (i.e. for a County). You can view a YouTube video by Jonathan about ArcGIS Community Parcels HERE or check out Esri's Community Parcels webpage HERE.
