ESRI – Preparing for Change (full day) 8:30 – 4:30

Many organizations using ArcGIS are in the process of migrating GIS workflows to the cloud, integrating ArcGIS with other enterprise systems, and replacing paper-based data collection with mobile app-based data collection. Successful technology transformation happens when organizations realize the pivotal role that people play. The Preparing for Change workshop supports attendees who are modernizing workflows using ArcGIS apps and capabilities, expanding ArcGIS access to new groups within their organization, or planning other GIS-related projects that will significantly impact how members of the workforce perform their jobs.

ESRI – Real Time GIS for Safety (half day) 8:30 – 12

March 7, 2023 | 8:30am – 12:00pm ET

Join us as we help you understand how elements in ArcGIS can be used to support organizational resiliency with real time processing engines and configurable apps. This workshop will cover how the ArcGIS system enables a flexible and extensive foundation for threat and hazard monitoring for facilities, infrastructure, and personnel appropriate for operations centers, real-time crime and fusion centers, safety and security operations centers and more.

Topics include:

· Connecting to and consuming data from an expansive GIS ecosystem, from real-time threat data from a variety of sources, both your own local/private feeds and from 3rd parties, and integrating weather, AVL, traffic, assets locations/status, etc. using ArcGIS Velocity or GeoEvent;

· Using configurable field apps, such as ArcGIS Field Maps, Survey123, QuickCapture or Mission Responder, to allow stakeholders to easily set notification needs and alerting preferences;

· Creating operational plans for critical event management, enabling multi-agency planning and collaboration for planned and unplanned events, and daily site operations at facilities, on campus or in an event venue.

· Leveraging analytics using ArcGIS Insights to perform proximity alerting between incoming data feeds and people, places and assets by establishing frequency, severity or other thresholds to best filter noise from real incidents of concern;

· Supporting intelligence analysis using ArcGIS AllSource;

· Providing situational awareness with ArcGIS Dashboards and customizing information views for different audiences;

· Assessing risk with ArcGIS to quickly understand & communicate potential impacts to people and locations, using Business Analyst infographics and reports.

Carolina URISA – GIS Program Success Factors (half day) 1 - 4:30

Why do some GIS programs succeed while others languish? What can you do to guarantee program success?

This ½ day workshop will examine the critical success factors that will help you ensure the success of your GIS program. Topics will include organizing your GIS to align with organizational goals, identifying and implementing the appropriate governance strategy, identifying and promoting your successes, implementing and leveraging an education strategy, how to select the appropriate technology and engage your users, and challenges and barriers to success. Participants will leave with a comprehensive checklist of action items that will advance the success of their GIS program and career. Examples from around North America will be shared as to what works and what does not.
