Title:  Migrating SWODA’s GIS Infrastructure from ArcGIS Online to ArcGIS Enterprise 11.2


The Center for Spatial Analysis (CSA) provides mapping and GIS consulting services to the South Western Oklahoma Development Authority (SWODA), one of the state’s eleven regional Councils of Government (COG). COGs are voluntary associations of local governments formed under Oklahoma law, and membership spans all 77 counties, including local governments, Cities, Conservation Districts, and Indian Nations. The purpose of Oklahoma’s COGs is to help navigate problems and planning needs that require regional attention, including:

  • Regional data collection and analysis
  • Mapping
  • Coordination of environmental, economic, and social program plans
  • Capital Improvements Plan (CIP)

In support of each item above, CSA provides services including GIS data maintenance, development and deployment of web maps for use in Field Maps, and the development of web applications for various cities and communities within the SWODA region. As SWODA’s projects and services continue to expand, so too does their need for a larger and more affordable GIS infrastructure. In this presentation, we will discuss why CSA migrated SWODA’s GIS infrastructure from AGOL to Enterprise, the workflows used to do so, and the pros and cons of each system based on our experience.

Title:  Oklahoma Mesonet: One State’s Approach to Quantifying and Communicating Weather Information

Abstract: Commissioned in 1994, the Oklahoma Mesonet is a world-class network of environmental monitoring stations that is a joint project between Oklahoma State University and The University of Oklahoma. With at least 1 station in each of Oklahoma’s 77 counties, weather observations are collected, quality assured, and provided to end-users every 5 minutes. We will review how data are created from siting to observation to final product and highlight the Oklahoma Mesonet’s approach to engaging end-users.
