Where We’ve Been, Where We Are & Where We’re Going - The evolution of a GIS at the local level in rural Oklahoma - Mike Sexton, Oklahoma Department of Commerce

Download Presentation

Those of us in the profession know GIS is a powerful tool with many applications but it does require a significant investment.  Outside of the metro areas, most local governments don’t have the resources to develop & sustain their own GIS.  Beginning with a request from the State Legislature, the Department of Commerce in partnership with Oklahoma’s 11 COG was able to create & implement a GIS program that has expanded into full service GIS shops across the state.

Implementing Web Based GIS Solutions - Chris Hill, Meshek & Associates

Web-based GIS is not a new concept for the GIS industry, but newer implementations of web-based solutions are moving more GIS users from behind the desktop to anywhere there is an internet connection.  Applications utilizing coding technologies such as FLEX, Silverlight, Java, and HTML create dynamic environments for browsing and querying GIS data via the internet.  Many of today’s GIS users will not require desktop software to make decisions using spatial data.  Further, the availability of online data resources is increasing the GIS user base and the changing the way GIS work gets completed.  This evolution creates a need to develop technically robust and geographically principled mapping applications that inspire non-GIS users to browse and review datasets.  The changes also create several questions about how GIS is used: What is the balance between desktop GIS and emerging web-based editing solutions?  How does this affect the quality of GIS data, what checks are in place to insure that data is both correct and represented well?  How do we build our workflows to insure current data is available?

Our charge as GIS professionals is to manage data and present information in a way that allows the user to easily view, query and interpret data.  For this presentation, several case study GIS projects will be presented and it will be demonstrated how Web-based solutions are making it possible to effectively share GIS beyond the desktop.

10:30 – 10:45  Break

10:45 – 11:45
