First presented at The Esri UK Annual Conference 2013, 21st May 2013, London, UK.

Geo-Enabling Collaboration for Construction
Steven Eglinton, GeoEnable, with Lily Wydra, Argent (Property Development) Services

With a case study of the King’s Cross Central development, this presentation will discuss the implications of emergent Cloud-based GIS and interfaces that allow non-GIS professionals to create, maintain and share controlled geospatial informational and what the ramification of these technologies are for current and future GIS Professionals.

This presentation will explore how Business Process Management (BPM) should lead geospatial and wider Information Management (IM) practices and will discuss how location information is rapidly becoming part of mainstream ICT and the Web empowering the vision of a Geo-Enabled Cloud.

Argent’s GIS Manager, will demonstrate how ArcGIS Online for Organizations is being used on the King’s Cross Central development, to enable business-wide communication and collaboration, enabled by the new geospatial platform.

    • Argent King’s Cross GIS: Location-Based Decision-Making Esri UK Annual Conference 2013 21 May 2013, London Steven Eglinton Director, GeoEnable Lily Wydra GIS Manager, Argent (Property Development) Services
    • 2 Agenda  Overview to GeoEnable and King‟s Cross  Overview of how GeoEnable introduced ArcGIS Online into the King‟s Cross project  Live demonstration of King‟s Cross GIS (ArcGIS Online)  Future of GIS and IM at King‟s Cross  Opportunities for change (that GeoEnable see)
    • 3 King‟s Cross
    • 4 King‟s Cross
    • 5 King‟s Cross
    • 6 King‟s Cross
    • 7 King‟s Cross "The King's Cross project is the largest area of urban redevelopment in Europe and it will include the largest new street in London since Kingsway in 1904; the largest public square since Trafalgar Square in 1845.” Richard Godwin Evening Standard Magazine  An extraordinary part of London is taking shape  50 new buildings, 2 000 new homes, 20 new streets, 10 new public squares, 67 acres (27 ha) , 45 000 people who live, work and study in the area  Read more: http://www.kingscross.co.uk/
    • 8 King‟s Cross, Argent and GeoEnable  The King’s Cross development is being led by Argent *  GeoEnable are Argent‟s GIS / Geospatial Information Consultant  GeoEnable scoped, planned, implemented and embedded ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS for Desktop for the King‟s Cross development  GeoEnable continues to works with Argent to continually improve and innovate Geospatial and GIS capabilities *Argent (Property Development) Services LLP, formerly Argent Estates Ltd
    • 9 Who are GeoEnable?  “At GeoEnable we help you unlock your geospatial and location information as part of workflows and efficient business processes.”  We democratise location information by embedding location technologies  We are UK-based, working with partners in the USA, Brazil and Globally  We are part of the Esri Partner Network and Esri Developer Network  Our UK and EMEA Director is Steven Eglinton
    • 10 Why does King‟s Cross need a GIS?  Communication & Collaboration on projects  Stakeholder and contractor engagement  Time savings for finding, re-use and sharing of data (surveys, CAD, GIS)  Visualising and mapping non-spatial information  Providing context to projects and disparate data layers  Reduce duplication of effort  Compliance / Hand-over: CDM Regulations, H&S etc  Aligns with Building Information Modelling (BIM)  Provide mobile mapping
    • 11 Vision for King‟s Cross GIS GeoEnable defined a vision and strategy: “King‟s Cross GIS: Supporting informed, data-driven decision making – though easy-to-use, standardised, streamlined and integrated information” “Everything happens somewhere”
    • 12 Before - Legacy GIS with No Process GIS SOURCE DATA CREATE PUBLISH USE
    • 13 Now - An Integrated Geospatial Platform Project Management Documents Photo Library Links to other systems Read-write in the field Read-only in the office GIS ArcGIS Online Hosted Geo-Data and Web GIS Read-write in the office Desktop GIS Process-Driven
    • 14 We needed people to „Think Information‟, Not Just Maps! GIS Products Plans and Maps Asset Management Reports Business Plan Bidding Material
    • 15 What is Location Intelligence? “The integration of Geospatial information & technologies with business information, creating location-aware Business Intelligence to enable decision-support.” Steven Eglinton, GeoEnable  This is an easier term to communicate to non-GIS professionals  Synonyms: Geospatial BI (GeoBI) and Location Analytics  Focus on visualisation – dashboards, KPIs, maps, diagrams  But, will not address business-wide process integration and geospatial data interoperability. We still need a „road map‟.
    • 16 Example Process - Project Progress CAD Manager ‘Shapes’ GIS Manager Deep Thought Master Plan Cost Plan (MPCP): • Buildings • Infrastructure King's Cross Project and Cost Reporting Database OK Create & Validate Whole Business MANAGE & SHARE GIS GIS Fail Validate & Check
    • Live Demonstration
    • 18 GIS
    • 19 Information Management (IM) for GIS 1 Information Management activity must lead GIS activity 2 All information (data) must have owners & custodians 3 Information needed to inform business decisions 4 Information forms the cornerstone for collaboration 5 Information needs to be seen as an asset 6 „Single Source of Truth‟
    • 20 Information as an Asset Project Asset (Building) Development Project Asset (Estate) Asset (Land) Project Development Asset (Utilities) Asset (Information)
