Meeting Agenda:

8:30 – 8:45 - Welcome and Announcements

8:45 – 9:30 - Using and Building Mobile Data Collection Workflows

Clifford Montgomery & Clint Myers -- City of Broken Arrow

The City of Broken Arrow just started mobile collection a year ago and we are still in the process of building a workable model for the city to use. The Engineering Department has been collecting survey data for years using it in our CAD design projects. GIS has become our main source for mobile data collection and storage now. Mobile data doesn't stop with collecting. A workflow needs to be established and maintained, problems will occur. Device compatibility, base maps, storage, and data access are just a few. We will revisit some of our work-around and how we handled them.

The City’s Public Works is starting become a major contributor of GIS infrastructure data from street maintenance to utilities. One of the first project and still ongoing is street signs and mosquitoes spraying. We will also give some insight into we handle those databases from the Street department.

9:30 – 9:45  Break

9:45 – 10:30 - Mobile GIS for Public Garden Management

Gary Huneycutt -- Philbrook Museum of Art

The Philbrook Museum of Art's Mobile GIS is the outgrowth of an initiative to develop a comprehensive Tree Management Plan for the 29 acres of grounds. The Philbrook's Mobile GIS became an integral part of the Tree Management Plan by providing the data store and analytical tool to house a myriad of attribute data regarding each of the 1152 trees comprising 115 different species.  The Mobile GIS has become the tool of choice for managing its tree resources by collecting and displaying data on a wide variety of attribute information associated with each tree.  Tree hazards, pruning needs, tree health, tree lighting, tree photos, vine impacts and maintenance actions along with tree genus/species, diameter, height, and crown spread all provide a snapshot in time regarding the management needs and issues surrounding this valuable resource that dates to approximately 300 years ago.

The long-term objective of the Philbrook Mobile GIS is to provide two applications, one of which will run on either desktop or mobile applications that access all information remotely, and the other which will be used by our visiting public to access tree attribute and mapping information through the Philbrook Museum of Art's web portal.  While the first GIS application is approximately 95 percent complete, it is anticipated that the public application will be completed and fully functional by the end of 2014.  Funding for this initiative was through a grant by the Phillips Foundation which endeavors to leverage public information in meaningful ways.

10:30 – 10:45  Break

10:45 – 11:45 - Open Government: Open Data

Pam Kersh -- ESRI

Open Data allows organizations to use the ArcGIS platform to provide the public with open access to their authoritative data. Organizations configure a website with their own look and feel and specify Open Data groups to share specific items. The general public can use Open Data sites to search by topic or location, download data in multiple formats, and view data on an interactive map and in a table.

11:45  Closing, Door Prizes.
