GIS Case Studies
This NG9-1-1 Workshop shows how GIS is at the heart of NG9-1-1 and is aimed at the GIS professional who is currently supporting or may soon support their emergency communications division in the future or the PSAP stakeholder interested in learning more about the data needed to support the ESInet. Deadlines are looming for the GIS Professional to have their data and workflows in place by 2020 to support NG9-1-1.
National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System discharge permits for regulated MS4s require permittees to develop a Storm Water Management Plan, which describes the stormwater control practices that will be implemented consistent with permit requirements to minimize the discharge of pollutants.
Even the best-designed public transit systems often suffer from the “last mile problem”: the distance between final transit station and final destination might be too far to walk, which encourages people to drive instead. Bike-sharing can mitigate the last mile problem sustainably, cheaply, and without new transit infrastructure, but only if the bike-share stations are well located in relation to the metro stations.
AECOM developed and implemented the Geospatial Security Mapping System (GSMS) for the Port of Oakland (Port) - this session will explore that process and implementation. The ongoing objective of the project is to produce an enterprise geographic information system (GIS) comprised of data, hardware, software, process documentation, training, and support that will be used by the Port to improve daily operations, to prepare for and manage crisis events, and to advise recovery efforts.

Communities are leveraging the power of open data and geography to transform how they do business and engage with their constituents. Changes in technology and demographics are driving this pivot in government and agencies need to adapt to attract new talent, reach their customers, and conduct business more efficiently. This talk will review the Hub approach to community GIS and the initiatives that are driving change such as Vision Zero, reducing homelessness, and constituent engagement.
