Get a Common Operating Picture Using Dashboards
The Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS provides an organization a common operating picture to monitor and respond to day-to-day events. The Dashboard leverages responsive maps, dynamic (and static) data sources to create operation views that include charts, lists, gauges and indicators which update automatically as underlying data changes. It is designed to support a full spectrum of device platforms from the multi-monitor video walls found within an Operations Center to a touchscreen tablet (iPad, Android tablet) device. This session will provide an overview of operation dashboard used in different industries such as Transportation, Environment agencies and Emergency Management by decision makers.

Using Web GIS to Address the Opioid Crisis
Solving a problem like the opioid epidemic requires cooperation from several disparate agencies. What are the needs of these agencies, what are the public's expectations and how can WebGIS provide answers? This presentation covers recent examples of how state and local government are working to respond to the opioid crisis.

Workflows and BMPs for Online Data Collection Using AGOL
Robert Burns had it right with "The best laid schemes of mice and men, often go awry". The poet might have well been alluding to landmines in GIS data development and maintenance. The buffet of ESRI ArcGIS Online methods for data collection and querying, are predicated on thorough and efficient workflows and long-views to glean the most out of the technologies. The worst returns on time and resources invested in data come from incompletely visioned data schema and un-tested workflows.

This presentation will focus on soup-to-nuts workflows involving desktop data schema design, using Collector app for fieldwork and Web app builder/Operations dashboard. Workflows are aimed at creating data sets, maintaining them over time (including history) and developing end user products (maps, apps, reports etc) to leverage the data created. It will also touch on the tips in the training and support for different levels of users to best execute goals.

Case studies used to illustrate workflows derive from natural resource management. This includes: Streetlights, Rooftops, Playgrounds, Coastal vegetation, Storm Damage, Management Regions etc.

At the Dept. of Conservation & Recreation, we work continually on evolving new methodologies to serve all levels and types of users involved in managing the Commonwealths resources, both natural and human-made.

Visualizing Land Use Trends Using BI Tools
Vermont is the third most forested of the lower 48 states with approximately 4.6 million acres of forestland. Despite being so heavily forested, for the first time in over a century Vermont is actually losing forest cover due to parcelization, subdivision, land clearing and development.
When forestland is broken up into smaller parcels from parcelization and subdivision, the result is typically an increase in the number of parcels with housing and infrastructure such as roads, septic and utility lines. When this development occurs, it “fragments” the landscape and can negatively affect plant and animal species, wildlife habitat and water quality. It can also affect the contiguous ownership and management of forest parcels, and thus the viability of large tracts of forestland to contribute to Vermont’s working forest economy.
In order to minimize the effects of parcelization and subdivision, it is necessary to understand where it is occurring, the rate at which it is occurring, and how it can be managed to reduce its impacts. To respond to this need, this project developed a database to track parcelization and subdivision rates in Vermont on an annual basis at the town, county, regional planning commission (RPC), and statewide levels.
Project partners created a database of parcels of land by size class and analyzed trends, such as ownership, use category, use value appraisal (current use) program enrollment status and the degree to which large parcels of land are being converted to smaller parcels of land at the town, county, regional and state levels.

The project culminated with the development of a website with interactive visualization tools allowing for the query, visualization, and mapping of the data. The interactive data report generator was developed using a combination of GIS tools, database tools, and Microsoft Power BI. This presentation will describe the process used to develop the database, website, and resulting interactive data visualization tools.

MassDOT Road Inventory Submission Application
The Road Inventory Submission Application (RISA) is an interactive web portal designed to replace the process of updating road data by using archaic New Road Entry Forms. Previously, updates were sent via mail or email after a municipal employee completed a worksheet describing road characteristics, the generation and processing of which was reportedly counter-intuitive.

MassDOT GIS has identified and developed solutions for three primary workflows; adding a new road, updating existing road characteristics, and adjusting the layouts of existing road geometries. The online interface is compatible with Esri’s Roads & Highways product and the linear referencing structure of the MassDOT GIS road inventory.

Managing SSES Programs with ArcGIS Online
Wastewater treatment systems are frequently tasked with identifying and quantifying sources of infiltration and inflow within the system. From data collection to analysis and reporting, this entire process can be drastically enhanced by integrating tools such as Collector, Survey123, and Operations Dashboard. The City of Boston, through the Boston Water & Sewer Commission (BWSC) has invested significant time and money in the separation of its combined sewer system. Some separated segments of the system, such as tributary to the Dorchester Interceptor, continue to experience significant wet weather flow increases, and periodic sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs). In the past ten years, BWSC has completed several studies focused on infiltration and inflow reduction. Current work now utilizes conventional sewer system evaluation survey components such as building inspections, smoke testing, flow isolation, sewer main and lateral cleaning and CCTV, as well as dye testing and flooding. Managing this data collection is simply and efficiently accomplished by incorporating tools within ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Desktop.

GIS Analysis of Land Use and Potential Flooding in the Nashua River Watershed
During the summer of 2018 at Fitchburg State University, a group of students worked with several professors and researched on the health of the Nashua River and its tributaries. This was the second year of a three-year research grant program. Two of the projects conducted in the program involved using GIS technology.
Samuel Gallagher worked on analyzing land use and land cover changes throughout the Nashua River Watershed. State and national datasets covering a time span of four decades were collected, investigated, and contrasted at both watershed and sub-watershed scales. Particular characteristics of the watershed such as imperviousness were also studied.
Caroline Anderson focused on simulating Nashua River flooding in Fitchburg. Three levels of flooding scenarios (minor, intermediate, and major) were simulated in ArcScene. The impacts of the simulated floods, particularly on urban area, number of buildings, and building square footage were calculated.
