  1. 1. NACo Improves Communicationby Creating Maps in ExcelEsri Maps for Office Makes Spreadsheet Data Stand OutBy Karen Richardson, Esri WriterStaff members at the National Association ofCounties (NACo) are making maps in Excelspreadsheets to improve communication withthe federal government. Maps get the or-ganization’s points across effectively so federalagencies quickly see NACo as a partner they candepend on to provide information that supportsbetter decisions. NACo is the only national organization thatrepresents county governments in the UnitedStates. The organization was founded in 1935 andprovides essential services to the nation’s 3,069counties. In addition to advancing issues witha unified voice before the federal government,NACo improves the public’s understanding ofcounty government, assists counties in finding andsharing innovative solutions through educationand research, and provides value-added servicesto save counties and taxpayers money.A New ChapterWhen Matt Chase was selected as the newexecutive director in July 2012 to promote coun-ties and county issues, he didn’t have a technicalbackground in GIS. That, however, didn’t stophim from using interactive maps on his iPadduring executive board meetings. Bert Jarreau, NACo’s chief innovation officer,and his staff have been using Esri Maps for Officeto create maps in Excel that support Chase’sendeavors. Like Chase, Jarreau did not have abackground in mapping or GIS. “It’s been trial and error for us,” said Jarreau.“We’ve been creating the how-to book as wego along—understanding what a basemap is A Look at the Number of Counties That Belong to NACo continued on page 8 Counties That Take Advantage of Payment in Lieu of Taxes Fundingfor State & Local Government Summer 2013Esri News

  3. 3. “If You Build It, They Will Become Aware”Integrated Web Map Aids Hurricane Sandy Relief EffortsBy Jessica Wyland, Esriprivate surveyors, and local assessors. Bundraquickly updated the map—known officiallyas the TRMUA GIS map. He added poststormsatellite imagery from the National Oceanicand Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)along with current floodplain delineations andSandy high-water mark data from the FederalEmergency Management Agency (FEMA). Anyone who needed to quickly get anaccurate picture of the Sandy situation couldclick to the TRMUA GIS map. Bundra built it,and people did come. Police and fire fighterscame to determine where to deploy resources.Electric, gas, and water companies cameto decide where to start restoring services.Homeowners, evacuated and eager to surveythe damage to their property, came to lookat before-and-after aerial photos. And, asBundra predicted, people most definitely didbecome aware. “The map served as a valuable resource forthe police department after Sandy,” said MikeBurke, IT and 911 coordinator for Toms RiverPolice Department. “We relied on that visualrepresentation—the before-and-after layers—to set up security perimeters and determinewhere to place cement barriers.” Since the TRMUA GIS map was built on theEsri ArcGIS platform and hosted by AmazonWeb Services, it provides virtually unlimitedpower for analysis, collaboration, and spatialdata processing. For example, following thestorm, many outside contractors arrived onthe shores of New Jersey to restore theregion’s infrastructure. One group in particularconsisted of engineers who needed to figureout the best plan for repaving roads. TheTRMUA GIS map helped them find their wayaround unfamiliar areas. They were able touse the map to locate important elementssuch as parcels, street addresses, hydrants,and underground utilities. In the weeks and months following Sandy,the map continued to help. Utilities used it toreview parcel polygons on the barrier islandsto identify houses and neighborhoods thatwere destroyed so the impacted ratepayerswould not be charged for the year 2013. Themap’s links to FEMA flood advisory mapsIt started as a free, public sewer infrastructuremap for Toms River, New Jersey. Len Bundra,IT and GIS director for Toms River MunicipalUtilities Authority (TRMUA), built it in 2004.Then, he kept adding layers. He added aerialimagery, parcel data, and information fromagencies such as the New Jersey Departmentof Transportation, the US Department of NOAA Imagery for the Barrier Island Areas of Toms River—Top Image Shows before Sandy;Bottom Image Shows after SandyAgriculture, and the US Census Bureau. Bundrahad one belief in mind: “If you build it, theywill become aware.” He was right. When Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coastof the United States in October 2012, the mapwas suddenly the go-to information source foremergency responders, utilities, public works,4 Esri News for State & Local Government  Summer 2013

Bundra also recentlyadded a layer to show houses that are slatedfor demolition and/or labeled uninhabitableto advise citizens and utility companies onwhere to focus rebuilding infrastructure. For Bundra’s own company, the TRMUA GISmap has continued to serve as a hub. “Simply stated, the Toms River MUA GISmap is a comprehensive, one-stop shoppingdatabase of all useful pieces of information foreveryone within the MUA, as well as contrac-tors, plumbers, consultants, and more,” saidNicholas Otten, authority engineer for TomsRiver Municipal Utilities Authority. “All variouspieces of data are centralized and accessibleby every MUA department within the office orin the field.” Before Bundra created the map, Otten saidTRMUA engineers had to sift through a roomof drawers with thousands of engineeringdrawings for information or request data fromother departments or agencies. Often, theywould have to send out crews for field visits.Now, everything they need is on the computerscreen with an aerial basemap. Otten says he can now view maps of all430 miles of pipe, 9,600 manholes, and 18 pumpstations, along with all attributes. At a glance,he can see whether a pipe or manhole hasbeen inspected or rehabilitated and thensimply click to view an inspection report orvideo. He can access various aerial maps,including posthurricane Sandy and aerialbasemaps from as far back as 1930. He cantell when a service lateral has been cut andcapped and see the triangulated locationsketch of the curb cleanout. The map shows all billing information, in-cluding the recorded number of fixtures withina building. It also shows pump station data; thenumber of connections flowing to the station;and hundreds of pages of data on emergencygenerators, wiring diagrams, pertinent engi-neering drawings, and pump curves. “With a few clicks, I am also able to generatespecific reports,” Otten said. “With GIS, I candetermine the approximate average flow withinany given pipe segment. I can list pipes andmanholes by name. I can find the names andmailing addresses of property owners within200 feet of one of our construction projects.”History of GIS at Toms River MUAToms River MUA began its GIS work in 2005 inan effort to assemble 40 years of paper plansand files into a centralized mapping interface.The system was built by in-house staff withoutthe use of any outside consultants, and it wascompleted within two years. All 9,600 of the MUA’s sewer manholes hadexact coordinates verified in the field usingsubmeter GPS units. More than 600,000 lineand manhole attributes were entered intoan Esri geodatabase from more than 3,000engineering plans. In addition, an entire GIS parcel basemapwas created from scratch to include additional There are 2,558 points hyperlinked to post-Sandy aerial oblique photographs from Civil AirPatrol added to the TRMUA GIS map.elements not typically found on the tax maps.For example, 3,000 individual condo units andall major apartment buildings were added tothe basemap, which was then aligned to NewJersey State and US Geological Survey (USGS)orthophotography. The system is now available for all MUAoffice staff across an internal network and toall field staff via ruggedized laptop units. “The GIS has increased operational ef-ficiencies across all departments by allowinginstantaneous access to data that previouslyhad to be searched for among reams of paperfiles and plans,” Bundra said. “The GISalso allows our field crews access to all theinformation they need to quickly assess andproperly address emergency situations.”Case Study5Summer 2013
  5. 5. Better than ScratchUse Configurable ArcGIS Applications to Get Results QuicklyBy Matthew DeMeritt, Esri WriterA Quick SolutionSince 1999, the GIS division of the City of Fort Lauderdale has deliveredgeospatial services internally to city staff. With a population of morethan 168,000, Fort Lauderdale is the largest city in Broward County.Recently, to meet growing demand by public and internal customersfor increased transparency and additional services, the division beganinvestigating the templates and applications available from the ArcGISfor Local Government resource center. GIS manager Ian Wint and his staff discovered that simply by con-figuring the templates, the city could rapidly expand its collection ofmapping applications in a fraction of the time that it would take if thecity developed web maps from scratch. The city’s aging Parks and Recreation application, based on ArcIMStechnology, was selected as the initial project. Residents value thepark system, and proximity to a neighborhood park positively affectsproperty values. Within a week, Fort Lauderdale’s GIS division hadmigrated its old Parks and Recreation database schema over to thenew information model and stood up the Park and Recreation Finder,which lets residents find nearby parks, either by address or currentlocation or by activity (such as basketball). Inspired by that fast turnaround, staff members began replacingother dated and slow-running web maps. Rather than moving every-thing over at once, the templates from the resource center allowed FortLauderdale to take a one-at-a-time approach. “The gradual method of improving our services with increased qual-ity and speed was a huge appeal,” said Wint. “The templates allowedus to add new services to our application gallery at a comfortable pacewithout the risk of biting off more than we could chew.”What do Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Lake County, Florida; and CabarrusCounty, North Carolina, have in common? All three local govern-ments saved time and money by implementing Esri’s ArcGIS for LocalGovernment maps and applications instead of developing thoseapplications from scratch. Esri’s ArcGIS for Local Government maps and applications offerquick and configurable solutions for common web mapping needs. Anattractive alternative to creating new services from the ground up, theycan refine internal workflows and provide new services to the public. Allof the nearly 100 applications can be downloaded at no charge fromthe ArcGIS for Local Government resource center and are built on theLocal Government Information Model. With the Park and Recreation Finder application, residents can find apark that is nearby or that has activities of interest to them. Using Lake County’s My Public Services application, residents can findinformation on everything from trash pickup to nearby health facilities.“The gradual method of improving our services with increased qualityand speed was a huge appeal.”Ian Wint, GIS ManagerGIS Division of the City of Fort Lauderdale6 Esri News for State & Local Government  Summer 2013
  6. 6. Since publishing its Park and Recreation Finder application, FortLauderdale GIS has added several new applications based on ArcGISfor Local Government to its existing web mapping application gallery,and more applications are planned.Minimizing Development TimeLake County, Florida, needed a better way to inform both new andpart-time residents about county services. It is the home of more than1,400 named lakes and more than 300,000 residents. Although someinformation had been available on the county’s interactive map, the GISdivision wanted to provide applications that addressed specific needs. Lake County’s GIS programmer/systems coordinator KeyettaJackson heard about Esri’s local government preconfigured ap-plications at a local user group meeting. She downloaded the MyGovernment Services template from ArcGIS Online and, after up-dating the county database to conform to Esri’s Local GovernmentInformation Model, had a new Public Services application published onLake County’s website in less than a week. “The Public Services page works better than we imagined,” saidJackson. “It provides our customers with a nice-looking interactive dis-play, intuitive controls, and a scrolling window showing all the availableservices.” Depending on the type of service, each tab includes contact infor-mation, driving distance, and links to websites of the particular serviceprovider. “The beauty of the template is that it minimizes developmenttime,” said Jackson. “I would have spent hours just making designdecisions and developing my own code.” Developers can still modifythe modules for a custom appearance as they see fit. For instance,Lake County’s page also displays nongovernmental services, such ashospitals and health facilities. Lake County next added the Parks Finder application and plans toeventually create other specialized maps based on the applicationsin the Esri Local Government Maps and Apps Gallery. The gallerycontains a variety of focused web maps. “The Public Services and Parksand Rec pages are just the beginning,” said Jackson. “Being able toindividually improve our services with existing assets is a huge benefit.”Eliminating CallsVoters need to know where to vote. With an estimated population ofmore than 180,000, that meant a lot of calls to the Cabarrus CountyBoard of Elections office. To reduce the number of calls, members ofthe GIS staff at Cabarrus County, North Carolina, implemented Esri’sPolling Place Locator template. While visiting the county, Esri developers had demonstrated ArcGISfor Local Government templates, that can be used to rapidly createfocused applications. With major elections approaching, the pollingplace locator—which helps voters by identifying their polling place—seemed an obvious choice as the first application to implement. “Within a week of discussing how we could improve our service,we were demonstrating the completed application to our Board ofElections,” said Zachary Woolard, GIS administrator for the county.“Starting from the ground up with no framework or guidance wouldhave taken much more time and considerable effort to get the data todisplay on the map.” The HTML-responsive design of the Polling Place Locator templatealso allowed Cabarrus County to deploy the application in the iTunesand Google Play stores. Since publishing the application in 2012, the county has experienceda significant drop in the number of phone calls received by the Boardof Elections. The application, which was both successful and relativelyeasy to stand up, encouraged the county to publish the Parks Finderapplication and a maps and applications gallery page. Woolard advises developers who are considering implementingthese templates to learn the Local Government Information Modelschema. “Studying the requirements of the local government modelpays off in getting quick project turnarounds,” he said. “That’s fairlyeasy to do compared to starting a project from scratch. From there, it’sjust plug and play.”Getting ResultsAll three local governments created polished, responsive applicationsthat meet specific needs in a short time frame.

  7. 7. and which ones should be made available for our staff once they areunleashed to create their own maps. It’s been such an eye-opening ex-perience to discover what we really have available in our data. We can’twait to train the rest of the staff so they can use this powerful tool.”From Healthcare to Membership DataAmerica’s county governments deliver healthcare directly throughpublic hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and other settings, as well asprotect the public through local health departments. Counties alsocontribute to the nonfederal share for certain Medicaid services andprovide health benefits to the nearly three million county workers andtheir retirees nationwide. Jarreau’s team created an interactive map that displayed wherehospitals and nursing homes were located in each county. With thisinteractive map, Chase was able to explore data with executives fromthe United States Department of Health and Human Services, whichfacilitated better discussions about health care initiatives. Another map was created to show which counties were representedat NACo annual conferences. This data had been collected over anumber of years, but there had never been a way to understand thetrends in the data before. By mapping the information, the staff wasable to see how the makeup of attendees had changed over time. The annual conference map also showed how many counties tookpart in various NACo programs, such as dental discount cards, andfederal funding, such as payment in lieu of taxes (PILT). PILT is a federalprogram that compensates county governments for the tax revenuethat is lost from land that’s owned by the federal government. Anexample is a national park. While county governments still maintainthe expense of infrastructure and services for these areas, they don’treceive a benefit from taxes for their programs. “This was really educational for our members,” said Jarreau. “Whilemany had thought participation in PILT was more of a western phe-nomenon, there were actually a lot of eastern and southern countiesthat also were part of the program. This is just one of the things wediscovered when we were able to look at the data on a map. We can’twait to see what else we uncover.”For more information, contactBert Jarreau, chief innovation officer,NACo, at Maps Directly in ExcelEsri Maps for Office is a downloadable add-in for Microsoft Office2010 that helps organizations make better decisions throughlocation analytics.

  8. 8. Making a Map Game of Bicycle CommutingGreater Redmond Transportation Management Association Generates EnthusiasmRideAmigos provided a map specifically for participants so they couldvisualize their trip and mileage statistics. GRTMA also learned how far the participants normally drive towork. The organization used that information to show participantsthe amount of pollution they reduced and gas savings to encourageparticipants to extend their bike commutes beyond the competition.For more information, contact JeffreyChernick at, Washington, 16 miles east of Seattle, is well-known as thehome of Microsoft. It is also home to an active bicycling community.Known as the Bicycle Capital of the Northwest, the city hosts RedmondDerby Days each year, the nation’s longest-running bicycle race. Seven years ago, the Greater Redmond Transportation ManagementAssociation (GRTMA) began Tour de Redmond, a commuter bicyclechallenge that encourages participating companies’ employees to biketo work. The competition has had an estimated 900 participants, whichrequires extensive preparation and excellent execution. Until last year,it struggled to organize participant information. At several points in the event’s history, participants had to reporttheir mileage in spreadsheets, a process that was labor intensivefor participants and GRTMA staff and prone to error. The electronicsystems GRTMA tried weren’t much better. “The programmers could never quite get it right, and that created allkinds of havoc for us,” said Linda Ballew, executive director, GRTMA. Luckily, Ballew saw Jeffrey Chernick, chief executive officer ofEsri partner RideAmigos, making a presentation at a conference afew months before the 2012 Tour de Redmond began. RideAmigostechnology provides online resources and maps that make it easy forcommuters to find car pools and vanpools or determine times androutes for biking or public transportation. The solutions also createfriendly competition among commuters with prizes for those who takethe most trips with alternative transportation. “Lightbulbs started going off in my head,” said Ballew. “I told himhe had just made everything I’d ever seen for tracking and monitoringpeople obsolete. Then I asked him if it would be possible to use justthe team portion of his program for a bicycle challenge.” GRTMA used the gaming, rewards, and tracking module fromRideAmigos to create a website where participants could log their tripsand miles. Participants in the eight-week-long event could see theirindividual trip and mileage statistics as well as a leaderboard with rank-ings for teams and individual riders. “When you start correlating trip logs with ranking, you start makingit user versus user, team versus team, company versus company, andall of a sudden it becomes a game, and that’s what drives the sticki-ness factor,” said Chernick. “People get into it, and instead of doing itbecause their boss tells them to, they do it because they want to getpoints and take the lead.” In addition to the thrill of attaining a number-one ranking, partici-pants were competing for prizes including trophies, cash awards, andREI gift certificates. For the GRTMA, RideAmigos combined bike commuter data withexisting bike infrastructure data, such as bike lane locations, on a mapto help the association understand which resources riders were usingand drive smarter decisions about managing and creating this kindof infrastructure. For example, seeing where there are heavy concen-trations of bike commuters indicates good areas for adding bicyclelanes. The interactive map showed the GRTMA where participantswere concentrated across the area as well as employer participation. A map showed GRTMA the areas where bike commuters wereconcentrated. Each bicyclist could easily log trips and see ranking, total miles andtrips, and a leaderboard online.Case Study9Summer 2013
