Enterprise GIS #1 Track. Diversify Your Toolbox: How to Leverage Your Esri Data Investment with Companion Technologies
AUTHORS: David Breeding, Applied Geographics

ABSTRACT: Ensuring the greatest return on your geospatial data investments may well require your database infrastructure to communicate with a variety of modern mapping and cloud-based platforms. Are you prepared? This session will focus on methods that allow your existing ArcGIS for Server infrastructure or database content to communicate with the broader ecosystem of spatial resources that exist in the market today. You will learn about the communication protocols for transferring spatial data to Google, Carto, and Open platforms. The methods will be presented through a series of use cases that show you how to leverage your Esri managed content on these platforms.

Enterprise GIS #1 Track. The Ups and Downs of Upgrading Hardware, Software, and Websites
AUTHORS: Dan Goodrich, Connecticut Water Company; Mike Doyle, Hilltop Northeast Enterprises

ABSTRACT: The Connecticut Water Company aims to be a world-class water utility, which is why our GIS group has been working to elevate our enterprise GIS platform to world-class levels. This means saying goodbye to ArcGIS 10.3 and our Flex based website in favor of ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6 and Portal for web delivery. It also means upgrading our virtualized editing environment from Citrix to a new hardware stack running VMWare VSphere to provide better speeds for editors across all parts of New England. We will review our process, our pain, and our eventual success! We will focus on our preparation for the project and our testing throughout.

Enterprise GIS #1 Track. Dr. Strange Locus, or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Common Gateway Interface
AUTHORS: Stephen Washburn, GZA GeoEnvironmental; Justin Ivas, GZA GeoEnvironmental

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!
