    • From Planning to Gaming: High Performance Geoprocessing and User Experience Robert Cheetham [email_address] @rcheetham
    • Who is Azavea?
      • 25 people
        • - software engineers
        • - geographers
        • - systems analysts
        • - historians
        • - designers
      • Spatial Analysis
      • High Performance Geoprocessing
      • User Experience
      • R&D
    • 10% Research Program Pro Bono Program Time-to-Give-Back Program Employee-focused Culture Projects with Social Value
    • Site Selection Tools
    • Buying a Home
    • Close to Center City  Walk to Grocery Store  Nearby Restaurants  Library  Near a Park  Biking / walking distance from our work  Biking distance to fencing  somewhat important vital very important nice to have somewhat important very important somewhat important Robert’s Rules of Housing
      • Child Care
      • Local School Rankings
      • Farmer's Market
      • PhillyCarShare
      • Public Transit
      Your Factors might include…
      • Tax Incentives
      • Commercial Corridor Health
      • Public Transit
      • Car Share
      • Open Space
      • Farmers’ Markets
      • Street Network Density
      • Recycling Participation
      • Walkability
      Siting Decision Factors
    • Not a new idea … Design with Nature
    • Not a new Idea … Dana Tomlin
    • Desktop GIS
    • x 5 x 2 x 3 x 1 + + + = Generate Output Heat Map
    • Web is different from the Desktop
      • Lots of simultaneous users
      • Stateless environment
      • HTML+JS+CSS
      • Users are less skilled
      • Users are less patient
    • ArcGIS Server
      • Flex, Silverlight and JS API’s
      • Publish tasks and models
      • Caching
      • Optimized MSD files
    • But wait … there’s a problem
      • 10 – 60 second calculation time
      • Multiple simultaneous users …
      • … that are impatient

    • Specific Goals
      • File format – ARG!!
      • Limit range and data type
      • 1D arrays rather than 2D
      • Distributed processing
      • Binary messaging protocol
    • Distributed Geoprocessing
    • Success!!
      • Reduced from 10-30 seconds to
      • <500 milliseconds
    • Success!!
      • Reduced from < 500 milliseconds to
      • <50 milliseconds

    • Existing Charge = $ 377.23 New Charge = $ 2,496.42 Gross Area = 599,744 Imperv Area = 491,035 Some bills will go up
    • Existing Charge = $ 4,702.82 New Charge = $ 120.24 Gross Area = 24,338 Imperv Area = 24,338 Some go down

    • Risk Forecasting
    • Summary
      • New technologies are changing what can be done
      • Faster geoprocessing is not just faster, it’s different
      • Opportunity and responsibility to re-think the user GIS user experience
        • Tablets
        • GPUs
        • Cloud Computing
        • Crowd-sourcing
        • Increased sampling and tracking
        • More corporate and gov transparency
        • Many, many more sensors
