1. GIS in the Drivers SeatSpatial-Driven Invasive Species Management Strategies Mobile GIS John Chapman (Operations Planner/Analyst) Keren Gundersen (Project Manager) Hawai`i Pacific GIS Conference March 6, 2012
2.  Case Study: Spatial-Driven Management Strategies  Mongoose Detection on Kaua`i Mobile GIS Implementation – Taking GIS to the field
3.  Kaua`i is the only main Hawaiian island without a large population of mongoose Kaua`i has the largest number of native bird species in Hawai`i Known road kill in 1976 Credible reports over the last 44 years Money for Detection What next?
4.  Fill in Data Gaps – (Missing crucial biological data)  Data Dictionaries, Photos, etc. More Accurate Spatial Data  Post-Processing Options Dynamic Map Access in the Field  Ability to query and view Map Data Reduce printing costs Reduce carbon footprint
5. Recreational GPS Hard Copy Maps Hard Copy Datasheets
6.  Decide on hardware and software to use Designing a workflow that mimics existing data entry procedures Train field crew Automate as much of the process as possible  GIS updates, datasheet downloads, etc Build in Quality Control Procedures
7. Mapping GPS - Terrasync Rugged Tablet PC - ArcGIS Server
8.  Mapping GPS (Trimble Nomad and Terrasync)  Data dictionaries  Rich data  Integrated Camera  Differential Correction  Bubble Breaker!
9.  Rugged PC’s (Panasonic Toughbook H2)  ArcGIS  Integrated GPS  Checked out copy of KISC Geodatabase  Imagery, TMK’s, etc  Datasheets with Markup tools  Data Backup
10.  GPS Fundamentals Terrasync field collection Pathfinder Office Desktop  Differential Correction  Export to GIS Digital Field Datasheet creation  Tablet PC Step-by-Step Guides Still to Come….  ArcGIS Training
11.  Automated data transfer to and from devices. Field data download and correction. QC and QA processes.
