This is a presentation that a colleague of mine gave out at GIS in the Rockies earlier this year. I repurposed it for a GeoDC Events last night. Enjoy and please let me know if you have any questions.

Transcript

  • 1. GIS for the ‘have-nots’: A case study in a small Colorado ‘Mayberry’<br />
  • 2. GIS for small municipalities: A big problem <br />138 “Mayberrys” in the state of Colorado with populations of 1500 or less <br />Characteristics of these towns: “One Bullet”<br />GIS: too costly to start much less maintain:<br />ESRI small government EULA most likely out of reach for these towns<br />High cost of data collection and maintenance<br />Staffing and O&M<br />Cost of data/data collection<br />“If we have one bullet…we spend it on public works”<br />
  • 3. The impacts<br />Emergency response<br />Public Works<br />City Administration<br />Reliance on hard copy data (parcels, lots, etc…)<br />This stuff changes or worse -disappears!<br />Hard to update<br />No basis from which to plan and share information for disaster/event response<br />The Hayman Fire: A view from Mayberry<br />Significant Snow Events<br />Mayberry has the same GIS needs as Denver – but right sized<br />
  • 4. Requirements<br />So what would a GIS for Mayberry look like?<br />Low/No O&M burden on the town<br />Requires no staffing<br />Minimal training curve<br />Low/No Cost for data<br /> Provides ability to share information<br />And…provides a core GIS capability to town staff for day to day business<br />If I just had access to a good web based GIS, with no training or O&M – I could fish more…<br />A simple, straight forward architecture that I can get to on a browser<br />
  • 5. Mayberry: Green Mountain Falls, CO <br />Located West of Colorado Springs on Hwy 24<br />Surrounded by Pike National Forest<br />Population 966<br />Government<br />One full time Clerk<br />One full time Public Works Coordinator<br />2.6 Police (Marshall)<br />Volunteer Fire Dept<br />IT infrastructure<br />4 PCs with cable internet<br />Standard office install with IE<br />Expertise…you guess.<br />Trivia: Most Bigfoot sightings in Colorado have occurred within 5 mi of GMF<br />
  • 6. GIS for Green Mountain Falls: The Approach<br />We identified the problem <br />Mayberry needs a GIS<br />We opted for a web-centric solution and common tools<br />Common tools minimize the training curve<br />We enlisted help (lots of help)<br />We hosted it externally<br />Removes local O&M and staffing needs<br />Provides for failover<br />External Host<br />
  • 7. Help!<br />Boy Scouts of America<br />Trail network mapping<br />El Paso/Teller 911<br />Road Center Line and Address data<br />Trimble Navigation<br />GPS training and equipment<br />GeoCommons<br />The GeoIQ platform that provides a fully virtual means of storing spatial data, creating and serving maps and providing means to customize analysis, access and dissemination of spatial data<br />Zekiah Technologies<br />Software Development collaboration between FortiusOne and Zekiah <br />
  • 8. The approach<br />Beg, borrow, (I would not Steal) data<br />Make use of data from town plan<br />E/T 911<br />CDOW<br />CDOT<br />GeoCommons<br />SW ReGAP<br />Collect<br />Upload to GeoCommmons<br />Apply appropriate role based access rules<br />Build maps based on user rules<br />Customize interface for GMF<br />Share<br />
  • 9. Architecture<br />
  • 10. What we wound up with…(demo)<br />
  • 11. It worked for Green Mountain Falls but…<br />The Mayberrys of the nation are underserved in the GIS market<br />How to make it work for your Mayberry in the meantime:<br />Keep it simple -use a web approach<br />Build your coalition<br />Academia, Business, Individuals NGOs<br />Be willing to borrow, be willing to share data and technology<br />Maximize use of free data<br />Maximize relationships with NGOs and other not for profits to obtain and collect data<br />Partnerships<br />Scouts<br />Trail Coalitions<br />Academia<br />Open street map and other mapping parties<br />Not every town has an aggressive trustee<br />
