  5. 5. Geospatial Integration• Scaleability Data• Workflows• Use the right tool for the task at hand Methods Tools “I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a Look for the nail.” – Abraham Maslow (1962) triangle of opportunity
  6. 6. The Value of Programmed Workflows Programmed Interactive T + Tm + ( Tr * N ) p < Tc + T + ( Tr * N ) dProgram Maintain Run Create Document Run 20 + 2 + ( .50 * 12 ) < 5 + 1 + ( 4 * 12 ) 22 + 6 6 + 48 28 ? 54
  7. 7. Data, Tools, and Methods• Data • Spatial (points, lines, polygons) Where • Non-Spatial (attributes of spatial objects) Augments spatial objects• Tools & Methods • GIS (overlays, buffers) • Python (geoprocessing) • SAS (analytics)
  8. 8. Integration Example- Park Score• Objective: Areas where there are deficiencies in parks 1. Todays Population 2. Forecasted Population
