  • This slide is a suggestion for how we want to depict our departmental solution patters to customers. Greater ROI is achieved as these 4 functional patterns are implemented. This slide allows us to talk about the four key areas: Data Management: the foundation to a successful solution, where GIS (as depicted in the middle) allows you to not only integrate with, but actually integrate many business systems (shown on the left as databases and workflow) through geography (shown as layers). Then, also allows the ability to bring in other data as feeds or ….. Bruce I thought you would like the depiction of “big iron”, we could also add a illustration of redundancy. Planning and Analysis: Depicted as some desktops that perform various tasks to support decision making. Situational Awareness: Depicted as a dashboard or big screen that is connected to a sound data management strategy to provide improved visibility into the operations of the organization. Field Enablement: Depicted as mobile devices that provide access to information when and where needed to get work done in the field and get information back to the office, providing more efficiencies and allowing you to get twice as much done in half the time. We need an icon of a truck or car with a computer in it as well as a ruggedized laptop vs. the tablet. The hand held is great.

    1. 1. GIS IntegrationAsset Management and More
    2. 2. Introduction• Studied Computer Science and CivilEngineering at Southern PolytechnicState University in Marietta, GA• Over 14 Years of GIS/GPS, CAD, andSurveying experience• ESRI Authorized Instructor for ArcGISProduct Line• Project Manager and Lead Analyst for GIS/ GPS projects• Founded GST Consulting, Inc. in 2005
    3. 3. Clientele• Greenwood CPW, SC• Spartanburg Water/Sewer,SC• City of Aiken, SC• Folly Beach, SC• Greenwood Metro, SC• Anderson County, SC• Sullivan’s Island, SC• North Charleston, SC• BCPSD, SC• Saluda County, SC• James Island, SC• City of Brevard, NC• City of Shelby, NC• City of Thomson, GA• McDuffie County, GA• City of Greensboro, GA• Putnam County, GA• City of Nicholson, GA• Garden City, GA• Locust Grove, GA• City of Newnan, GA• GRWA• Sunbelt Rentals• Hussey, Gay, Bell & DeYoung• Carter & Sloope• Civil Design Solutions• McGill and Associates
    4. 4. • Asset Management– Everyone’s favorite term– Tracking assets (that should be stored inGIS)– Tracking work being performed– Tracking costs associated with work• Labor• Materials• EquipmentThe Need
    5. 5. • GIS Based work orders• Commercial off the shelf productsavailableThe Solution
    6. 6. • Most organizations already have workorder system tied to financials andinventory– Unwilling to change• Work orders do not track all work beingperformed– Regularly scheduled maintenance– State mandated regulationsThe Problem
    7. 7. • Integrate existing GIS with existing workorder system• What is Integration?– Seamless transition of data from differentsoftware packages into one commonplatform– Data must be “Live” in most casesThe Alternative
    8. 8. • All assets should be found there• Spatial Analysis– Where are our problems– What areas need improvement– Where is our money being spent• Geography paints a picture– People understand geographyWhy GIS for Integration

    11. 11. • GST found the need for integration tool– ArcGIS Server provides the platform• Developed in conjunction with several ofour clients the GIS Portal• Mobile and Web based– ArcGIS Server Advanced Enterprise– ArcGIS Server Standard Workgroup orEnterpriseThe Alternative
    12. 12. Base Portal• Mobile GIS capability– Map Navigation– Simple Query and Printing– Layer Control– GPS
    13. 13. Table of Contents LayerControlGeneric Tools –Navigation, SimpleQueries, Print, AdminSpecialized Modules foreach Group
    14. 14. Map Navigation• Zoom In By Window• Zoom Out By Window• Pan• Zoom Previous• Zoom Next• Zoom Full Extent• Zoom to Scale• Bookmarks
    15. 15. Simple Query and Printing• Measure Distance– Left click to start andadd vertices– Right click to finish• Identify– Now views related data• Search (Configurable)– By customer address– By customer name– By customer number– By meter serial number– Street Name– Street Intersection– Facility ID• Printing
    16. 16. Layers• Table of Contents• Turn Layers On and Off• Save user settings
    17. 17. GPS• Allows capture of data in redlines• Simple Navigation
    18. 18. • Speed• Connectivity– Users can work while server is down– Allows GIS department to maintain GISserver and not kill everyone’s connection toGIS– Users can work disconnected from office• Speed• .NET application is lightweight and doesn’trequire great computing powerWhy Mobile
    19. 19. • Not everyone can afford ArcGIS ServerAdvanced Enterprise• Developed for ArcGIS Server StandardUsers (Work Group or Enterprise)• Still works from centralized database• Created in Flex and Silverlight for speedenhancementsWeb Based

    27. 27. • Allow mobile users to “Mark Up” GIS maps• Users find “mistakes” in mapping all of thetime– Mistakes stem from changes being made tosystem– Mistakes stem from lack of info• Stores redlines in project to submit to GIS– Allows us to track number of submittals andreceive updates on changesRedlines
    28. 28. Redlines• First attempt to provide mobileapplications to field users• Important to allow field techs to submitcorrections found in field• Users “Mark up” maps and attributes• Redlines are tracked through projects– Organizes for GIS department– Users can track completionProjects trackarea ofchanges
