  • Real-time Road Closures for Blue Ridge National Parkway
             David Warren
    This map shows the real-time open/close status of the 469 mile Blue Ridge Parkway. Park staff use a simple online interface to keep the status of sections of the parkway up-to-date. Their changes show up immediately on the map. In leveraging the power of CartoDB, with its ability to work in CartoCSS and custom SQL queries, we were able to produce a visually-pleasing web map to visitors of Blue Ridge Parkways NPS.gov website. With CartoDB's easy-to-use process for data entry, park staff are able to go in and modify road status information and those changes are instantly replicated to the web map living on http://www.nps.gov/maps/blri/road-closures. This presentation will show you how we implement CartoDB for this map in order to produce real-time awareness of road closures for visitors at parks. It will also briefly mention the other work we are doing for real-time status mapping, including the development of Yellowstone Live.


  • Real-time GIS for Public Safety
             Kevin Armstrong
    In Public Safety, having access to the most accurate and up-to-date information is a critical need for success. Come see how several different agencies are using GIS to provide the means to meet this need. We will discuss how information can be harvested from social media and methods for distributing information internally including maps, texts, SMS, etc.


  • CrimeView Dashboard
             Brandon Inscore, GISP
    The Greensboro Police Department has implemented Omega's CrimeView Dashboard to support Problem Oriented Policing. Dashboard rests on ESRI’s powerful ArcGIS Server mapping engine and organizes complex information from multiple databases into visualizations that provide an instant snapshot of current activity for key decision makers. Data can be imported from any records or dispatch system and quickly viewed in several formats including heat maps, repeat call locations, day of the week charts and time of day graphs. These visuals allow for the rapid assessment and dissemination of critical information throughout an entire organization and supports Greensboro's Problem Oriented Policing approach to policing. This presentation will talk about the implementation of the software and demonstrate how it is being used to support Problem Oriented Policing.
