Mapping homes damaged in the Bastrop County Complex fire. Like many presentations, the slides just compliment the presentation so it doesn't tell quite the whole story, but it's a start.

  • First … of noteI’m new to this. Might seem simple.This was a learning experience. Still is.
  • First list was a Facebook postFirst official map, list 9/7 (wed)Copy ‘n’ paste from PDFExporting didn’t work wellMaps were very helpfulThey also changed
  • Could be two different goals: Fusion Tables or ArcMapFusion Tables wants address togetherArcMap wants them in separate columnsCleaning in ExcelExcel formulas make my head hurtA real programmer could do in regex
  • ArcMap is proprietary & expense ($1500)It is also very good and pervasiveNot every address workedDifferent road namesDifferent city namesPick placementIf I didn’t have the printed maps, I wouldn’t know they are wrong
  • ArcMap creates shapefiles (.shp)Fusion Tables (and Google Earth) needs Kehole Markup Languages (.klm)Shape to Fusion does the conversion for you, sending all the data to Fusion Tables.I did use Export to KLM once, but did not export all dataReading directions might help
  • Fill out metadataConfigure info windowConfigure stylesAdjust data if necessaryMake publicRecord ID#
  • Publishing two different layersFT will let you join if you have a common field. Not here.Fusion table layer tool allows thatFive-table limit set by GoogleCan update map by changing call to different table
  • You can’t easilycorrect ADDRESS ALONE as locationNew list each dayHad to recode addresses each time.Couldn’t add just diffs (would’ve hit 5-table limit). Didn’t know how.Bad Addresses: Without map reference, we’re screwed5-table max: adding just diffsExcel formulas: Took time to figure out

  • Deconstructing aFusion Tables map
    Bastrop Complex Fire Damaged Structures
  • Our Agenda
    Walk through process
    Challenges faced
    How can we do it easier?
    What can we do better?
  • Getting the addresses
  • Cleaning up addresses
    My goal was to Geocode in ArcMap (why later)
    Lots to learn about Excel formulas
    =RIGHT(A5,LEN(A5)-SEARCH(" ",A5,1))
    =LEFT(B5,SEARCH("SMITHVILLE",B5)-2)
    =RIGHT(B5,16)
    =LEFT(D5,SEARCH(" ",D5)-1)
    =RIGHT(D5,5)
  • Geocoding in ArcMap
  • Shpescape.com is awesome
  • Fusion Table styling
  • Layering Fusion Tables
  • Just publish it
  • Addresses alone were not enough
    A new full list each day
    Recoding bad addresses
    No diff tool
    Some addresses don’t map
    5-layer max for FT
    Excel formulas are great, but hurt my head
    Challenges faced
  • What’s a good diff tool?
    Cheat sheets for Excel formulas?
    Regex?
    ArcMap alternatives/Geocoding tools?
    How can we do it easier?
  • What can we do better (or next)?
    Before & after?
    Insurance claims?
    FEMA data?
    Rebuild list?
    Census profile (yes!)
