ABSTRACT: This presentation will cover the automated mapping platform we have developed using python, JS, CGI, and ESRI API that we have dubbed “GZA Automap”. It provides an easy to use front end or “user interface” on our company SharePoint. The platform allows users to interact with the front end on SharePoint to automatically generate project specific maps derived from information stored in in our SQL enterprise databases. We have begun with the most commonly used and simplest to automate, the Site Locus Map and the Site Plan.

As the platform progresses we hope to add support for the automation of textual reporting, exploration location plans, geotechnical or environmental sub-surface profiles and much more!
