Highfield, Robbie - City of Fate, TX
Utilizing Esri ArcPro for Single Family Rental Tracking & Analysis
Rising sea levels due to climate change are forcing the relocation of inhabitants and businesses, such as NASA facilities, from low lying, vulnerable areas within the Chesapeake Bay watershed. This poses a question regarding historic landmarks like lighthouses and traditions: where will they go? Where will the people connected to these places find comparable space? With respect to climate change and population size, how urgent should planning be to meet these needs?

Olson, Susan - City of Frisco, TX
Description: Leveraging a strong partnership between Police, Fire, Dispatch, Transportation Engineering, IT and a local school district, the City of Frisco brought a vision for Situation Awareness for Emergency Response (SAFER) into being through the in-house development of a geospatial platform. Since its initial implementation, SAFER has grown into a critical business application that provides first responders critical incident information through a common operating picture from nearly 30 integrated systems. These include: 9-1-1 caller locations, RapidSOS, Vehicle and Motorola Radio GPS locations, Cityworks, Waze incidents and road closures, live-video feeds, HERE.com real-time traffic, Weather Conditions, Hazmat Plumes, building floor plans and the location of critical infrastructure.
Pelkie, Angie - Fugro
Machine Learning Approaches for Accurate Lidar Classification
Description: Fugro will be presenting on using machine learning techniques to undertake advanced classification on existing USGS data to create lidar by-products including building footprints, 3D building models, and culvert polygons (Sense.Lidar®). There is an abundance of good quality USGS lidar data for Tennessee, and it’s crucial for regional planning agencies to extract all relevant Geo-information from these existing datasets. It’s only when GIS stakeholders have access to accurate Geo-data can they help improve the lives of citizens in their communities.

The Case for 311: Using ArcGIS Survey 123 and Cartegraph
Description: After years of struggling with outdated software, handwritten notes, and phone calls from residents, the City of New Braunfels, TX turned to ArcGIS Survey123 to create a modern, map-centric approach to request management. Today, they pair Esri tools with Cartegraph to efficiently respond to requests about potholes, traffic signs and signals, stormwater drainage debris, facilities set up, solid waste, and more. Learn how this fast-growing city saved time, streamlined processes, and improved service to its community with the power of GIS and Cartegraph.

Stroupe, Laura GISP - City of Frisco, TX
Description: The close partnership between the City of Frisco and Frisco ISD has made it possible to quickly develop and share the latest technological solutions. Annually, for their assigned schools, the Student Resource Officers (SROs) review all existing cameras and report new cameras added but missing in GIS. This presentation will review a custom (web-based) application developed for the SROs that streamlines this process and drastically cuts down on the time and personnel required. As all SROs are Frisco PD Officers, this pre-established trust and understanding of our GIS solutions (thanks to the SAFER program), has made the adoption of new solutions like this application a non-issue.

USGS HUC 12 (Hydrologic Unit Code) subwatershed boundary dataset research
Description: USGS HUC 12 (Hydrologic Unit Code) subwatershed boundary dataset is widely used and the area ranges from 10,000 to 40,000 acres. This research selected multiple HUC 12 subwatersheds in Iowa and TX based on average slope within the subwatersheds. USGS most current DEM data were used to delineate the corresponding boundary and significant differences were found between the delineated boundaries and HUC 12 boundaries.
