Census Track. Synchronization and Standardization of Address Points and Street Centerline Files
AUTHORS: James Coyle, Geographic Specialist, U.S. Census Bureau

ABSTRACT: Synchronizing and standardizing address points with street centerlines can be highly advantageous in maintaining large address databases. This presentation will advance a spatial methodology for synchronizing the 6.1 million New York State E-911 address points with the US Census Bureau TIGER line files. The methodology has a significant number of useful outputs which include a drop point on the street centerline for use in network analysis, an offset point that may be used for cartographic labeling, coding for each address point that indicates the specific standardization method used. Finally, since each address point is allocated to a specific TIGER segment, this method establishes a framework for small area analysis or spatial analysis at the block face level that can be used to advance community health analysis. Finally, this presentation will present how owner occupancy has evolved in Erie County, New York in the time period 2005-2015 utilizing the methodology advanced in this presentation.

Web Apps #2 Track. Data Management Tool (DMT): How a Web-based Application Helps to Manage and Inventory Multiple Internal, Private and Public Geodatabases, Map Services and Online Items Throughout an Enterprise
AUTHORS: Michael Blair, Innovate! Inc.

ABSTRACT: Innovate developed a custom application, or Data Management Tool (DMT) to improve the quality, consistency, and transparency of US EPA Region 9 geospatial resources. As background, the US EPA Region 9 utilizes a wide range of Esri products in multiple internal, sensitive, and public environments. Maintaining an up to date and accurate inventory of data in enterprise geodatabases, ArcGIS Server services, and ArcGIS Online items is both arduous and complex. Further, a historical focus on project-centric operations tended to silo data by project area or support division, often resulting in data and metadata replication. While EPA Region 9 has deployed previous data management systems, their faults were often in the reliance of manual inventory updates and user input.

The DMT application provides a searchable, sortable, user-friendly interface that not only relates all of the content but checks for the existence of and completeness of related documentation, including hosting environment, metadata, unique identifiers, update cycles, and sharing settings. The application serves as a live, single point of entry for all analysts to find resources, and immediately identify their location, accuracy, and relevance.

The new DMT leverages the backends of enterprise geodatabases in Microsoft SQL Server, ArcGIS for Server, and the ArcGIS Online API to harvest and relate features in all three Esri products. The system is deployed in each environment and automatically harvests items in the enterprise geodatabases and those related to map service layers, including the metadata for all ArcGIS Online items to identify if any contain rest services.

Lidar/3D Track. Expanding Vermont Spatial Data Infrastructure with Statewide QL2 Lidar
AUTHORS: Mike Brouillette, Lidar Program Manager, Vermont Center for Geographic Information

ABSTRACT: Vermont has achieved statewide Quality Level 2 (QL2) lidar coverage in 2018, positioning the state to pursue robust Vermont Spatial Data Infrastructure (VSDI) goals previously out of reach. Primary among these goals is a statewide, 17-class land cover layer at 0.5m resolution with an overall accuracy of 90% or better. The geometric information in lidar along with the spectral information in various statewide imagery supports Automated Feature Extraction using an Object Based Image Analysis framework to produce this data. Increased data accuracy, reduced acquisition costs, and advancing technologies are increasingly enabling those responsible for finding innovative solutions to an array of Vermont’s challenges. A pre-release of the land cover data will be shown along with other current efforts (Statewide Property Parcel Mapping Program), as well as a brief overview of the lidar program and lidar-based services.

Natural Resources #1 Track. Don't Clam Up! Trend Analysis Everyone Can Use...a Shellfish Sanitation Case Study
AUTHORS: Melissa Albino Hegeman*, Matt Richards – NYSDEC Division of Marine Resources

ABSTRACT: Using ArcGIS Online allows the Shellfish Bureau at NYSDEC to easily keep an eye on all aspects of their operation. Marine Resources has been using ArcGIS to keep track of station locations, shellfish harvest zones and shellfishing closure locations for years. We are now using the analysis tools available through ArcGIS Online to add value: the data is easier to find, easier to understand, and more up to date. The operations dashboard allows staff to look at water quality trends both over time and across space. The ArcGIS Online tools allow all staff to work with the data from any computer without installing any extra software. The new “Shellfish Dashboard” integrates with existing water quality analysis, temperature and salinity readings to show everything in one view. It also allows staff to keep track of the number of sampling runs occurring and where, so they can quickly determine any deficiencies. This visual representation also allows decision makers to better understand shellfish closures in the context of other activities and proposed activities in the nearby area.

Natural Resources #1 Track. How Interactive Online Technologies Advance the Connecticut’s Changing Landscape Study Website
AUTHORS: Emily H. Wilson, James Hurd, Chet Arnold – University of Connecticut

ABSTRACT: The University of Connecticut Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR) has added a new date to the Connecticut’s Changing Landscape (CCL) land cover and land cover change study. The study now covers 30 years with 7 dates (1985, 1990, 1995, 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2015) of land cover. CLEAR has a long history of making the results of the study available on the web to all users in a variety of ways. Previous versions of the website used pdfs, static images and ArcIMS to name a few. Today, the information is being shared using the new geospatial technologies. ArcGIS server services are available to users, populate a story map and are consumed by a web app builder viewer with multiple, user-friendly tools. New, slick and interactive data visualizations tools, such as Tableau and Esri Insights, were assessed and are now part of the website. The presentation will show these tools, discuss how they are being used to share land cover and how their dynamic nature improves user experience. http://clear.uconn.edu/projects/landscape.
