Field Data Collection Track. Using ARCGISOnline, Collector, and Survey123 as Field Data Collectors and Report Publishers
AUTHORS: Richard O'Gara, PEER Consultants, P.C.

ABSTRACT: The Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA) is a $2.3 billion construction project to extend the Green Line from Lechmere Station in Cambridge to Union Square in Somerville and Tufts University in Medford. The Green Line Extension (GLX) Extension Project consists of construction of 7 new stations and over 4.3 miles of new Light-rail track and appurtenances.

PEER Burlington was awarded the contract for providing the Pre-construction survey services in support of the GLX project. The survey requires performing damage assessment and elevation surveys for approximately 1000 properties along the project right of way. The large number of properties, separate survey crews, and varied types of data and deliverables necessitated a structured, computerized approach to field data gathering and data reporting. PEER chose to use ARCGIS, ARCGISonline, Collector, and Survey123 to collect data in the field, check the data, and create deliverables.

Mr. O’Gara has more than 25 years of experience developing, analyzing, and visualizing large infrastructure and environmental geographic data sets for the public and private sectors. He has significant experience developing geospatial data models. Mr. O’Gara has managed several data creation projects. He has also provided technical services and guidance on a wide variety of topics. Richard has been “in the field” on many occasions, but only got his work truck stuck in mud once!

Enterprise GIS #2 Track. Implementing an ArcGIS Hub: Tips and Tricks and Lessons Learned
AUTHORS: Nicholas Floersch, Katie Budreski, David Healy – Stone Environmental, Inc.

ABSTRACT: The ArcGIS Hub is a new data-driven approach to frame a community's open data, and engage with that community, and its constituents, around specific community initiatives and goals. Stone is working with a Vermont community to develop an ArcGIS Hub solution within their ArcGIS Online environment. We will share our approach to gaining interest from non-GIS audiences, defining a framework for outlining initiative content, collecting and centralizing a community's data, developing stories around the community's data, and using the contextualized data to engage the community towards its initiatives. We will also discuss strategies for ongoing maintenance.
