NG9-1-1 and the GIS Workflow, a URISA workshop
This URISA Certified Workshop is aimed at the GIS professional who is currently supporting or may support their emergency communications division in the future. In a fully operational next generation 9-1-1 system, GIS is the core component in determining how a 9-1-1 call is routed to the correct public safety answering point (PSAP).
This technology shift will have profound impacts on local data maintenance workflows, local data access, and data fidelity.   We recognize there is a sincere lack of education available aimed at the GIS professional who may not be as versed with the 9-1-1 terminology or needs.  This workshop is intended to provide an overview of next generation 9-1-1, GIS’ role in such a system, the implications on local workflows, and to illustrate common pain points and sources of errors in local GIS datasets.

Connecting Kitsap Utilizing Demand Aggregation and GIS to Smartly Expand Broadband Access
After passage of a new state law in 1999 permitting Public Utility Districts (PUDs) to provide wholesale telecommunications services to citizens, Kitsap PUD initiated a county-wide fiber optic network building plan. The initial goal to build to all anchor institution buildings in Kitsap County has virtually been met, and Kitsap PUD is now focusing on those within the community that are without service or underserved by their current Internet service providers (ISPs). Kitsap PUD is a public agency, meaning that the broadband services that are provided to the citizens are a community owned network. Through a variety of mechanisms residences are able to connect to the technology that surrounds them. This creates a network of connections that relies heavily on the use of GIS. Whether through the use of Crescent Link to manage our current infrastructure, or data analysis to evaluate where to build next, the use of GIS is critical in developing a fiber optic network that can reach the underserved citizens of Kitsap County. Through the use of public surveys distributed by KPUD, current FCC underserved regulations, and existing ISP providers, KPUD is mapping how it will expand to close the digital divide.

Martin Luther King, William Bunge, URISA, and GIS for Equity and Social Justice in King County (50 min)
"This session will survey the use of geographic analysis and GIS for equity and social justice (ESJ). Beginning with the coincidence of Dr. Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have a Dream Speech’ and the first URISA Conference – both on Wednesday, August 28, 1963 – we will examine the pioneering work of Prof. William Bunge in the area of quantitative spatial analysis and applied geography for issues related to social change and justice in the United States and Canada. Bunge’s work related to theoretical geography anticipated the development of GIS. His work on the Detroit Geographical Expedition in 1968 and the Toronto Geographical Expedition in 1973 applied geography in the field for community based social issues.In the early 1960’s Bunge received his PhD in Geography from the University of Washington where by coincidence Edgar Horwood was first applying computer technology for urban planning at the same time. Horwood’s work, and the first conference on August 28, 1963 led to the formation of the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association. We will survey research and publications related to Equity of Social Justice as reported in URISA conference proceedings, workshops, and the URISA journal during the past 55 years.
We will conclude the session by outlining how GIS is used for ESJ issues at King County (Washington) and other local agencies. King County was renamed in 2005 for Martin Luther King. King County is a leader in applying ESJ criteria in all of its priorities and programs. We will describe how King County GIS supports this work by creating a rich foundation of data and tools to put ESJ analysis into the hands of everyone within the county and communities that we serve. We will also present current work done both by other agencies and academic institutions."

Using Risk and Physical Condition to Develop Asset Management Strategy
Providing safe, sustainable water, wastewater and storm water solutions is a critical priority for community leaders, utility managers and a reasonable expectation of citizens. Many utilities rely solely on age based deterioration to forecast asset condition and replacement strategies. This session will discuss best business practices for incorporating risk and physical condition into your asset maintenance strategy. Risk is defined as Probability of Failure and Criticality of Failure. Maintenance workers can score their assets based on these risk factors to better understand potential impact to services provided. Furthermore, adding condition assessment based on physical deterioration of assets helps prioritize where the maintenance dollars should be spent.

Structure Updates and Satellite Imagery: Advantages and Drawbacks
There is a regular need among numerous agencies and companies to understand changing infrastructure across large geographic extents. These needs may include infrastructure assessment, hazard analysis, population density, etc. Structure update projects may employ acquired aerial imagery or proprietary satellite imagery in order to review positional, structural, or attribute updates. This presentation will discuss the use of satellite imagery as an alternative to aerial imagery, examining the advantages and drawbacks with regard to ensuring maximum data accuracy. The project area to be considered is a large gas transmission pipeline network located in North America. The attributes to be determined include the structure use type, dwelling unit count, and estimated normal occupancy, among others. In addition to quantitative or discrete remote sensing techniques, qualitative survey techniques will also be described. In conclusion, the use of satellite imagery will be assessed based on its overall utility, and under which conditions it may be more or less reliable.

Visualizing Wildfire Activity in the Pacific Northwest since 1980
The 2017 wildfire season shattered records and cost the U.S. Forest Service an unprecedented $2 billion. From the Oregon wildfires to late season fires in Montana, and the highly unusual timing of the California fires in December, it was a busy year in the Western United States. And 2018 shows no signs of a slowdown in the frequency and size of wildfires.  While 2017 was a particularly notable wildfire season, this trend is nothing new and research suggests we can expect this unfortunate trend to continue due to climate change and other factors. A recent study suggests that over the next two decades, as many as 11 states are predicted to see the average annual area burned increase by 500 percent. Kara Utter and Eric Pimpler from Geospatial Training Services recently built an ArcGIS Web AppBuilder/Story Maps application with an embedded R Shiny application that enables you to visualize both historical and current wildfire information in a single application. This map application allows a utilitarian and interactive approach to visualizing the past 37 years of Federal wildfire data, including:
 Time lapse animation
A closer look at Mega Fires
Wildfire proximity counts based on a location of interest
Filtering map view by year, cause, size and fire organization
Visualizing current wildfire and drought conditions across the Western US

Designing a Low Stress Bike Network for Bend, Oregon
Mekuria, Furth, and Nixon (2012) developed a network measure based on the concept of minimizing bicyclist stress during a bike trip. In this methodology, every road segment is classified on a four-point scale called Level of Traffic Stress (LTS). LTS incorporates factors such as separation from motor vehicle traffic, number of lanes, width of the bike lane (with parking if applicable), speed limit, and bike lane blockage. LTS also incorporates intersection approaches (e.g. pocket bike lanes and right turn lane characteristics) and the size and speed of signalized and unsignalized intersections. The method assumes that the stress of any route is determined by the worst, or most stressful, link of the entire route, and that some riders will not ride on links with higher levels of stress. This, therefore, limits the portion of a network available to a cyclist. In 2016, along with many other states, the Oregon Department of Transportation adopted the Level of Traffic Stress (LTS) approach to bike facility design. The City of Bend, as part of its transportation system plan update, has incorporated the LTS concept in an effort to define a complete low stress network for bicycle transportation within the city. This presentation will describe how Bend's Growth Management Department used GIS to calculate LTS and guide the design of a future low stress bike network.

GIS Manager Track - Workforce Development
2018 proved to be a big year for GIS training. After a couple years of sluggish demand for ArcGIS Pro training, many organizations began to migrate to ArcGIS Pro and we experienced a big increase in demand for basic training on this platform. Other software trends in 2018 included a consistent demand for Python training for both ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Pro as well as a sudden burst of interest in R, data visualization, and data science. This coincides with an increased demand for spatial statistics and analytics training. From a class format perspective, traditional classroom training was far more popular than online training. While there is still a demand for online training options it seems to have plateaued, which tends to be the case during relatively good economic times. Looking forward to 2019 and beyond we expect continued interest in these topics as well as renewed interest in mobile technologies, AI, drone mapping, and Lidar.

Combining Disparate Datasets to Get the Data You Need
Do you ever struggle to find the exact GIS data that you want?  Do you get frustrated that available datasets aren’t granular enough or are redacted in a way that isn’t actionable?  We live in the Big Data revolution, so why should we give up if we don’t find the exact GIS data that we are looking for?  In this session, we will explore the idea that to get the GIS data you want, one dataset, you may need to employ and combine multiple datasets.  To demonstrate this, we have a case study on enhancing international wealth and demographic data, although this approach can apply to any GIS dataset and to any GIS industry.  Case Study - Enhancing International Wealth and Demographic Data: For many reasons, US data about demographics is easy to find, even on a micro-geographic basis, but in many other countries around the world, finding micro-geographic data about demographics is hard. In the US, we are fortunate to have the Census Department, which offers extensive data about things like the number of people of various age groups. This data is available on a micro-geographic basis, which technically is called a “block group” – polygons containing roughly 1,500 people. In markets outside the US, getting demographic data totally depends on the country. In China, demographic information only comes in very large geographies, including on average 500,000 people. That means that US data is, on average, over 30x more granular than Chinese demographic data! Wealth data in China is essentially non-existent on anything but a city-wide basis. So how do you get the data you want? In this session, attendees will learn the principles we use to turn big piles of data into micro-geographic information: examples of data that enhance demographics and wealth include road networks, urban greenery data, real estate data and building volume data. Examples of principles include materiality, source quality, structured/unstructured data and strategic intent. The moral of the story we are telling is that the quality of a single dataset can almost always be enhanced. So, just because the data that you want doesn’t exist, doesn’t mean that you can’t estimate it.

SuperTracts
I am proposing the creation of a new Census geography comprised of 4-6 contiguous census tracts which I will refer to in this paper as a supertract. When used with data from the American Community Survey (ACS) the supertract will substantially reduce the sampling variation making it simpler to use in analysis, mapping, and public presentations. The proposal is directed toward mapping and analysis of Portland data not toward official designation by the U.S. Census Bureau. The approach is in part patterned after the creation of ten minute neighborhoods by the City of Portland, groupings of census tracts. Background - Most of our current socioeconomic data about local areas in the U.S. comes from the Census Bureau's American Community Survey (ACS). The ACS replaces the long form questionnaire on earlier decennial censuses but runs continuously, not every ten years. Sampling errors in the ACS are larger than in the long form census data. Estimates of sampling errors are displayed in the downloaded data, obligating us to qualify tables and maps. A concrete example of this can be seen in census tract data on the proportion of (1) senior households in (2) rental housing who (3) do not own a vehicle. The sample for the 2015 Portland Metro area ACS included 141,340 households, seemingly a large number. However the sample of seniors in rental housing drops to single digits or zero for many census tracts, insufficient to assess vehicle ownership. A number of researchers have proposed techniques for conveying the notion of sampling error in the ACS on maps, but at best they introduce confusion for a lay audience. A better approach may be to aggregate ACS data into a geography larger than the census tract. Census tracts generally have a population between 1,200 to 8,000 persons with a desired size of 4,000 persons. At the desired tract size 4-6 census tracts in a supertract would contain 16,000 to 24,000 persons. This is a large enough number to substantially reduce sampling variation. The supertracts also are given a place name that has local familiarity to better link statistical data to the viewer’s mental maps of Portland better than with the census tract numeric identifier, e.g. 413.12 in Clark Co. The paper will discuss background issues mentioned above and will show an initial attempt at creating and naming supertracts for Portland. It will discuss concepts related to grouping of tract geographies and alternative approaches. An effort is underway to work with staff at Portland area counties to refine the preliminary maps and the naming of the supertracts. My hope is that over time the supertract groupings and their names will come into acceptance and common use and will become familiar to users and viewers of ACS data and maps

Dasymetric mapping of census data to assess congressional districts
Dasymetric mapping is a technique for disaggregating data to more accurately reflect actual distributions and reduce MAUP issues. Ancillary data, such as land use, can be included in the process to influence this redistribution. This talk will cover dasymetric mapping of census data that was performed as part of my Geospatial Technologies master's program project. Block group level census data for several categories from the 2015 American Communities Survey (ACS) were remapped across Washington State with the goal of creating more accurate residential population distributions. These results were then used to analyze Congressional districts in an attempt to look at "community" through the lens of districts. The talk will focus on the processes and techniques employed.

Data Management Tool
Tracking your GIS data assets as a GIS person can be a convoluted process. Data is being viewed and utilized through many different applications, such as web maps, mobile maps, and desktop applications. Being able to identify all the data layers supporting an ArcGIS Online Web App and then tracing that back to the source can be a valuable thing to know. Also when you are doing data updates and need to know what web/mobile maps this data update will effect can be very important. Innovate developed a custom application called the 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.

Lost in Space: Maintaining Data Integrity with Mobile GIS Solutions
"Modern day asset tracking is transitioning from a two dimensional “spreadsheet view” to four dimensional, spatiotemporal asset management. Near-real time data allows utilities to find and address problems before they become detrimental to an entire system and mobile solutions make it easier to capture more data than ever before. This data density, if not managed properly, can be both a blessing and a curse. One fat-fingered typo can be the difference between a successful valve repair and an accidental water shortage, making data integrity more integral than ever. Nationwide, many utilities still rely on disjointed legacy systems comprised of numerous spreadsheets, non-spatial databases, and GIS data. At first glance, this disconnect makes implementing real-time asset management in a GIS environment complex. But we’re here to tell you it doesn’t have to be!
Leveraging the custom URL schemes within ArcGIS mobile solutions and FME Desktop we were able to integrate real-time mobile data collection into legacy systems without significant database restructuring. Come learn the nuts and bolts of these integrations and follow the journey of one gas meter from a line item on a spreadsheet to a feature service of its very own. We’ll demo a custom batch assignment process using Web AppBuilder and Workforce for ArcGIS, share how to pass customized complex values between all of Esri’s mobile solutions, and show how backend integration can make real-time asset management function with legacy systems."

Population Health Improvement: Geospatial Data-Driven Assessment and Intervention
In the era of healthcare reform, improving population health is particularly important and requires a better understanding of the relationship between health outcomes and social determinants to prioritize areas of need and develop improvement plans. These types of analyses are instrumental in facilitating collaboration and cooperation among community groups and healthcare workers. Using small area data from the CDC 500 Cities Project and other publicly available datasets, we worked with the Illinois, Rhode Island, Maine, and Nebraska Academies of Family Physicians to identify priority areas for targeted outreach efforts in four main categories – Unhealthy Behaviors, Health Outcomes, Prevention, and Access to Care. These analyses have been used to decide what types of outreach programs would most benefit communities of interest, where to hold medical education events and target physician recruitment efforts, how to position state advocacy efforts and funding requests, and who potential community partners might be. The project is being expanded through map automation to produce maps for every state, identifying topical issues unique to each state’s population and highlighting geographic areas of greatest need.

Why Is Addressing So Hard?
Location awareness from a public and 9-1-1 perspective is a more complicated matter because lives are on the line. This session is designed to help the GIS professional understand the basics of addressing using a more recent case study from the City of San Jose - Master Address Database. Even sophisticated enterprise GIS organizations have a lot of work to do to compile an accurate address database that is public safety grade. We’ll explore why your organization, no matter how big or small, will benefit from going through the effort to create and/or improve the precision and accuracy of your jurisdiction's address point data.

Easy as Survey123 – A Solution for Madera Mosquito District’s Seasonal Field Crew
Madera County Mosquito and Vector Control District conducts surveillance and abatement activities through the active mosquito season, from March through October. A fresh seasonal crew of 20-30 people is hired each year to perform inspections and treatments within the District’s 720 square mile boundary. Kirsty Burt teamed with Kristoffer Law to develop a Survey123 solution, replacing a legacy MS Access database deployed on aging HP iPAQ devices. The solution uses the power of Survey123’s smart forms to guide the crews through the appropriate workflows and menu choices with ease. Drop-down menus ensure that accurate data is reported to state and federal regulatory agencies. With the addition of a custom base map, the crews confirm the owner and address for each property and locate their activities correctly. Previous issues with data location, quality, and completeness have been virtually eliminated using the Survey123 solution. The Survey123 solution is just the beginning for Madera County Mosquito and Vector Control District. Next steps include custom reporting and integration with Esri’s Service Request and Workforce Solutions. This presentation will cover all aspects of the project, including business needs analysis, the Survey123 solution, next steps, and lessons learned.

Interior Mapping
Innovate! Inc. developed a web-based Floor Plan application tool for US EPA Region 9 that provides access to information about Region 9 people, places, and resources. It displays the current list of all Region 9 employees, including contractors, grantees, volunteers (if any), and other EPA and federal agency staff stationed in R9. It also provides detailed floor plans for each space at EPA R9 Headquarters, other regional offices and place-based individuals. There are many layers that can be turned on that offer details of resources and emergency information for the building. The application was built using Esri JavaScript API and ArcServer and integrates AutoCAD floor plan data. Innovate was honored with a Federal Small Business Specialty (FSBS) Award during the Esri FedGIS Conference. Innovate! was named Esri’s 2018 Innovation Partner for our innovative usage of Esri technology in support of our client’s operations (https://www.innovateteam.com/innovate-inc-honored-at-esri-fedgis-confere...).

GIS Manager Track - Governance for GIS: The Sound to Summit Region Pursues a Collaborative Approach to GIS
King County and local agencies are working to plan, develop, and operate a collaborative approach to regional GIS. The goal is to maximize benefits and minimize costs for GIS for all regional agencies into the future. A key outcome will be an optimally sustainable GIS that reduces costs for all and enables low-cost entry for medium and small agencies for state-of-the-art GIS applications for all public agency business needs. In Washington, public agencies face a budget challenge every year by a hard 1% limit in state law on the increase in property tax revenue. At the same time there is significant duplication of effort and expense in local GIS operations. A collaborative regional approach to GIS would help ensure sustainable GIS for all agencies.

More than 150 GIS FTEs work for public agencies in King County. If only five (~3%) could be repurposed from duplicative data maintenance and non-value added back-office administrative functions, and applied to developing direct service GIS applications and end-user support, GIS would become more affordable, sustainable, and deliver increased ROI for King County, Seattle, Kent, the Snoqualmie Tribe, and other agencies across the region. This presentation provides a status report on this multi-year effort. It will include the perspective of two the agencies that are participating on the project Steering Committee: The City of Kent and the Snoqualmie Tribe.

Mapping Recreation - Classifying Information Across the State
Washington Hometown is working to build a statewide data set of recreation and culture that can be used for maps, apps and analysis. One of the biggest challenges in this project is to create a classification scheme for recreation resources that can be used to tell a meaningful story for all types of recreation users and recreation managers. Whether it is trying to classify boat launches in a way that is helpful for fishermen in inland rivers and those with yachts on Puget Sound, figuring out how to capture informal agreements when talking about trail use, or classifying public recreation lands from the smallest pocket park to a national forest. In this talk, we will address some of the biggest challenges and solicit input from the audience

Applying Agile Tools to RLIS Data Production
Need to catch up on your sleep? Attend this presentation. A couple of years ago Metro’s Data Resource Center (DRC) overhauled our server environment and migrated from Oracle to SQL Server. We used a few tools and processes from Agile project management to help manage the project. There were a few bumps in road but in the end we had enough success with the Agile tools that we have continued use the them for our Regional Land Information System (RLIS) data production. In our view, the way we manage the GIS data is similar to software development and many of the project management tools apply to our work. I’ll review our successes and what tools we continue to use. This presentation would be of interest to GIS coordinator, project managers and GIS managers.

GPS/AVL Telematics Supports Metrics Gathering including GIS & Asset/Work Management
Municipalities are quickly migrating to using information and communication technologies to increase operational efficiency, share information with the public and improve both the quality of government services and citizen welfare. GPS/AVL Telematics uses M2M (machine 2 machine) and telematics technologies to provide a constant stream of information and metrics regarding your field crews activities and accomplishments which helps support an organizations mobile Operations and serves to feed near real time data updates to your corporate information systems such as Enterprise Asset Management and GIS.
Government agencies now have a way of automatically completing work orders in their asset management system using telematics. We will review various ways agencies can populate business data in systems they use every day with work being done by snow plows and spreaders. We will review how we connect to sensors and to onboard controllers to do this. The result is the enterprise benefiting from telematics – without learning a new system. The key benefit is current, up to date data in mission critical business systems. Specific workflows used by customers with ArcGIS, Lucity, Cityworks and custom systems will be presented.
Learn about this exciting emerging technology is supporting operations large and small from King County to Redmond OR.

Closing Collaboration Session - The Art of the Helpful GIS Presentation
In the conference keynote address, Esri President Jack Dangermond described ArcGIS as a system of record, a system of insight and a system of engagement. This presentation directly supports the third of these systems. The goal of the session is to encourage the GIS community to consider three aims when preparing for and participating in GIS presentations: (1) focus on helpfulness, (2) practice collaboration, and (3) engage continually. A group of four GIS professionals experienced in presenting on a wide variety of topics in a diverse range of settings will lead a collaboration session in which they will elucidate their reasons for recommending these aims and encourage attendees of the session to complement their ideas with feedback and suggestions based on their own experiences and ideas. This exercise will provide immediate professional development benefits for attendees, which will enhance the value of interactions of many types, especially meetings and conferences.
