  1. 1. Weaving a Solution
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>Task </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To improve data management of Major Capital Investment for Abbotsford </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To improve use of resources by streamlining the gathering and sharing of information, internally and externally </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Four components </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>GIS – spatial data entry point </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>WebMap – web based mapping tool </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Intranet – in-house website </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Internet – world wide access to Abbotsford data </li></ul></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Goals <ul><li>To develop user-friendly applications </li></ul><ul><li>Multi-user editing capability </li></ul><ul><li>Single database </li></ul><ul><li>Selection of reports </li></ul><ul><li>Limit maintenance required </li></ul><ul><li>Expandable </li></ul>
  4. 4. Former Workflow <ul><li>Convert Excel spreadsheet to static HTML document </li></ul><ul><li>Use attributes on GIS database to link to HTML </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple data sources </li></ul><ul><li>Relied on co-ordination between departments </li></ul><ul><li>Not user friendly and labour intensive </li></ul><ul><li>Inflexible – compounded mistakes, hard to trace </li></ul>
  5. 5. Old Capital Projects Listing Screen
  6. 6. Possible Solutions <ul><li>Two solutions considered </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Microsoft Access Runtime </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Intranet accessing a database </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Possible Solution - 1 <ul><li>Access </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Develop application </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>load </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>maintain </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Limited access </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No existing forms, queries etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Develop from scratch </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Possible Solution - 2 <ul><li>Web-based </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Existing forms in ASP for webmap </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Some in-house expertise </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Unlimited access by public and staff </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Solution – Option Two <ul><li>Web-based </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Existing forms in ASP for webmap </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Some in-house expertise </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Develop code to maintain access database </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Access for public and staff </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Future potential </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. To get it done… <ul><li>Components </li></ul><ul><ul><li>GIS </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Webmap </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Intranet </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Internet </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. GIS <ul><li>Spatial data </li></ul><ul><li>Maintained in ArcInfo by drafting department </li></ul><ul><li>Download to WebMap already developed </li></ul>
  12. 12. WebMap <ul><li>Intergraph product </li></ul><ul><li>Linked to ArcInfo GIS database </li></ul><ul><li>Attributes already assigned (project number link) </li></ul><ul><li>Link to Access database by project number </li></ul><ul><li>Point and click for reports </li></ul>
  13. 13. Intranet <ul><li>Intranet Connections product </li></ul><ul><li>Integration capabilities with other applications </li></ul><ul><li>Develop user-friendly forms and reports </li></ul><ul><li>In-house development relatively easy </li></ul>
  14. 14. Internet <ul><li>City website – www.city.abbotsford.bc.ca </li></ul><ul><li>Provide access for the public to view reports </li></ul><ul><li>Simple point and click interface with search function </li></ul><ul><li>Link back to WebMap site, displaying capital project </li></ul><ul><li>Much code already written </li></ul>
  15. 15. Application … <ul><li>Application designed and developed utilizing in-house expertise, including input forms, searchable lists, internal/external reports </li></ul><ul><li>Secure access provided through Intranet software </li></ul><ul><li>Connectivity to other servers to access additional information </li></ul>
  16. 16. Application … <ul><li>Spatial data entered in ArcInfo </li></ul><ul><li>Uploaded to Webmap </li></ul><ul><li>Access database edited via intranet </li></ul><ul><li>Link established between database and map </li></ul><ul><li>Internal reports generated from database </li></ul><ul><li>External reports generated from database </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Internet </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Webmap </li></ul></ul>
  17. 17. Application … <ul><li>Maintenance in hands of users </li></ul><ul><li>Password protected </li></ul><ul><li>Contact information derived from other Intranet database </li></ul><ul><li>ASP used to run </li></ul><ul><ul><li>data entry </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>editing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>map </li></ul></ul>
