Web, mobile, and desktop Apps continue to become part of everyday GIS practice and are used by both highly-skilled GIS professionals as well as non-GIS users. This session will showcase some of the latest and greatest Apps from across a broad range of user applications that are useful for information presentation and decision making.

  • Easement Clearing App
             Rob Bailey

  • Using ArcGIS Online for the 2014 US Open
             Rachel Smith, Rachel Patterson
    Using ArcGIS Online for public safety and security during the historical back to back US Opens. Moore County GIS coordinated mobile mapping for federal, state and local agencies to use during the US Opens in Pinehurst, North Carolina. What we learned from a unique event.

  • Go! NC
             John Farley, Tom McKay
    This is NCDOT's implementation of ArcGIS Online. GO! NC is system for the sharing and collaboration of geospatial business data owned and maintained by NCDOT.

  • Enhancing Local Government with Story Maps
             Scott Longerbeam
    This presentation will look at the ways that local governments can enhance their existing online presence through the use of ESRI's Story Maps. The presentation will utilize the experience gathered by the City of Danville through the implementation of both Collector for ArcGIS and ESRI's Story Maps to create an online tour of our River Walk Trail system.

  • Volunteer Stream Monitoring and ArcGIS Online: Enabling Field Collection of Observations Over Time
             Chase Barnard, Dave Almond
    The Town of Chapel Hill utilizes volunteer stream monitors to collect water quality data monthly or quarterly at assigned locations. In order to minimize the time investment required by Town staff to maintain the volunteer monitoring database as the program expands, a solution utilizing ArcGIS Online was developed. This solution enables volunteer monitors to enter data through a web-based interface, effectively eliminating internal data entry.

    Related tables are used to store multiple observations of a given feature over time. Unfortunately the current ArcGIS web-editing environment does not easily support this data model. However, utilizing ModelBuilder and python-scripting, Town staff developed a workaround which enables this functionality. Ideally, communities can implement this solution to support automation of programs requiring maintenance of multiple inspection records over time for various features using ArcGIS Online.

  • AGOL Use Case Scenarios
             Melanie Williams
    NC DENR has had several occasions where decision-makers needed maps and speed was of the essence. This presentation will present several types of use case scenarios of recent deployment of AGOL websites, as well as the impacts these are having on decision-making, from every day activities like where to look for frogs to disaster response.
