Getting Started with ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7.1
Description: ArcGIS Enterprise is a key component of the ArcGIS platform. It provides you with a complete GIS that runs behind your firewall, in your infrastructure, on-premises, and in the cloud and works with your enterprise systems and policies. In this lecture-format workshop, we will discuss how to successfully deploy ArcGIS Enterprise in your organization. We will also discuss new capabilities which have recently been released as part of ArcGIS Enterprise, like ArcGIS Enterprise Sites, collaborations, and shared instances. Come learn how to design and deploy your own ArcGIS Enterprise environment and hear tips and tricks, and see the steps to build intuitive web pages that reflect your organization’s branding and support users of all experience levels.   Whether you’ve already deployed ArcGIS Enterprise to your organization, or are just beginning to think about it, you’ll get ideas on how to configure it for the best possible experience and results, and how to develop governance to support and engage users of all types successfully.

Intended Audience - GIS users and managers will benefit from this workshop, especially those who want to take their server GIS to the next level. It is expected that advanced technical discussions will take place. A high-level understanding of ArcGIS Enterprise components as well as a familiarity with ArcGIS Online is recommended to get the most out of it. 

Format and Requirements: Lecture only.

Introduction to ArcGIS Pro Python Tools and Processes Development
The goal of this workshop is to teach attendees how to extend ArcGIS Pro by using Python to create functionality that can run as standalone programs or operate inside the software as geoprocessing tools. While the workshop is focused on ArcGIS Pro the methods are very similar for ArcGIS Desktop.

Four topics will be covered: (1) ArcGIS Pro Python overview and setup; (2) Upgrading ArcGIS for Desktop tools for use in ArcGIS Pro; (3) Running Python scripts; and (4) Creating geoprocessing tools (script tools and Python Toolboxes).
JetBrains PyCharm (Community Edition) will be used for coding demonstrations and a brief introduction to its features and capabilities will be provided.




Intended Audience - GIS professionals familiar with the ArcGIS desktop products and basic Python programming.


Learning Objectives
  • Extend the capabilities of the ArcGIS desktop programs using Python. 
  • Explore the relative merits and applicability of the Python extensibility options.
  • Create Python standalone programs and geoprocessing tools. 



Format and Requirements: The workshop will consist of a balance between lecture material and hands-on exercises.
Attendees will be able to follow along during the demonstrations, but those who wish to do so must bring their own laptop with ArcGIS Pro (latest version) and JetBrains PyCharm (Community Edition) installed.
 
Anyone unfamiliar with PyCharm is advised to work through the introductory materials available from the JetBrains website (https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/) before arriving at the workshop.

Introduction to Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS Custom Widget Development
Esri’s Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS supports the creation of web applications that can be extended using widgets, which are developed using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The Layer List is an example of such a widget, consisting of a button in the web application and a form which opens when the button is clicked. The form provides information about map layers along with associated functionality. The goal of the workshop is to teach attendees the basic principles required to create their own custom widgets and, thus, add their own functionality to web mapping applications. Specifically, widgets are based on the Dojo open source toolkit, while the ArcGIS API for JavaScript provides capabilities for working with maps and associated tasks. Custom widgets are created using the Developer Edition of Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS, which allows for the creation of web applications that can be hosted by organizations, especially within an ArcGIS Enterprise environment, as opposed to within ArcGIS Online (security concerns prevent the development and deployment of widgets in ArcGIS Online). 

The workshop will provide an introduction to (1) the role of widgets in Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS, (2) installation and use of the Developer Edition, (3) creation of basic Dojo widgets, (4) use of version 3.x of the ArcGIS API for JavaScript in widget development for 2D applications and (5) widget deployment. 
Visual Studio code (https://code.visualstudio.com/) will be used for the development demonstrations and a brief introduction to its features and capabilities will be provided. Attendees will be able to leave the workshop having a strong basis for developing their own custom widgets for use in Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS applications. This will help them increase the value of their ArcGIS investment and enhance their standing and employability as GIS professionals.  


Intended Audience - GIS professionals having basic familiarity with web development (HTML, CSS and JavaScript) and version 3.x of the ArcGIS API for JavaScript.  


Learning Objectives -Extend the capabilities of Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS applications by developing custom widgets. 


Format and Requirements:The workshop will consist of a balance between lecture material and hands-on exercises. Those who wish to complete the exercises during the workshop will need to bring their own laptop with Visual Studio code installed. Attendees are encouraged to explore its capabilities prior to arriving at the workshop.

Python Geoprocessing for Rangeland Management: Guidance for Developing Efficient Tools and Processes
With examples developed for Open Range Consulting, LLC, a Utah-based provider of advanced techniques for rangeland management, the goal of this presentation is to offer guidance that may be helpful to anyone interested in developing geoprocessing tools and processes, particularly using Python. Specifically, the presentation will address three primary topics: (1) the development of a set of Python tools to support raster processing workflows for rangeland management; (2) the use of multiprocessing to significantly reduce processing times, and (3) recommendations for producing clean and consistent code. The tools to be described in the presentation have evolved over a number of years, with a focus on streamlining the use of existing ArcGIS geoprocessing functionality in association with the statistics software R. In simple terms, the development path has involved three steps: (1) develop the initial tools; (2) make them run faster, and (3) expand their capabilities and versatility. In implementing these steps, the aim was not only to meet specific operational needs, but also to enhance the professional development of the Open Range Consulting staff.

Using Collector for Centimeter GIS Data Collection
High-accuracy GPS/GNSS has changed a lot.  In the early 2000s' GIS groups would spend as much as 10K on a sub meter GPS receiver and were required to use  time-consuming post-processing workflows. GIS techs can now use their iPad or smart phone devices with high accuracy bluetooth receivers to collect 3D (horizontal/vertical) centimeter-accurate data in apps like Esri's Collector, in real-time.  High-accuracy multi-constellation GNSS positioning,  both horizontal and vertical,  is more affordable and available than ever before,   This presentation will look at some of the trends and key requirements to collect centimeter data in real time to a mobile GIS app like Esri's ArcGIS Collector on your smart device.

Road Work Ahead! A Collaborative Approach to Mapping Boise’s Traffic Disruptions
The City of Boise is one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. Growth means more construction and community events. Along with routine road and municipal utilities maintenance, new development construction can block off sidewalks or cause lane restrictions for weeks or months. More events get planned throughout the year that can cause multi-street closures or shut down entire blocks for hours or days. Currently, information about street restrictions and closures is found via multiple resources that can be time consuming to gather. This presentation will run through the efforts it took to create an interactive mapping application, called BECCA (Boise Event and Construction Closure Application), that pulls in information from several City departments and external agencies that is used by City staff for short and long-term traffic mitigation planning. The goal of BECCA is to enhance safety in the community, increase situational awareness, minimize impacts to business and property owners, and maximize traffic flow for all modes of transportation in the City’s core during events and construction projects. BECCA provides at-a-glance information to help City staff make informed decisions around, and mitigate the impact of, street restrictions and closures. The application was created using ArcGIS Web Appbuilder and includes several widgets customized to help users query for specific information. We will discuss wins, loses, hurdles, and lessons learned along the way.

Evolving a Municipal GIS
The City of Lacey had been using GIS in a sort of ad-hoc manner with little overarching organization or guidance. With the acquisition of an enterprise license we set out to modernize the City’s GIS use by implementing Portal-driven web maps for the city, using ESRI apps on city phones for mobile mapping and data collection and replacing ArcMap 10.X with ArcGIS Pro, for desktop GIS users. It took a lot of change management and education to make this paradigm shift work – this presentation will cover how we did it as well as some lessons learned along the way.

ArcGIS Enterprise and Portal: Delivering the goods ...
The landscape of GIS has been changing over the last few years. State and Federal agencies are moving away from file based GIS datasets and desktop applications to robust enterprise (local and cloud) based platforms. The contemporary ArcGIS Enterprise environment can efficiently provide distributed GIS managed content via Web Services, as well as provide out of the box solutions to a broader audience, than that of the older file-based approach. In late 2018, the Dept. of State Lands (DSL) began the migration process away from siloed GIS datasets and older Desktop tools towards, ESRI’s more contemporary ArcGIS Enterprise/Web GIS based platform.

ArcGIS Enterprises’ frontend application – Portal , provides DSL staff with a secure gateway to agency GIS content, along with Dashboards and Web applications (created via WAB). From this productive environment users can securely authenticate, view, query, create and share maps, as well as edit dataset that are all housed in a back-end Enterprise Database solution (ArcGIS Server, ArcGIS Data Store, and MS SQL server).

Despite the productive possibilities of the Enterprises approach, the migration and adoption process can take longer than one might expect, and so putting together a good implementation plan can help prevent delays. This presentation will look at both the opportunities and challenges that DSL has faced with migrating to the ArcGIS Enterprise and Portal environment.

Transforming Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS® widget development
Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS® is a great framework for quickly delivering purpose-based web GIS applications. In situations where you may need capabilities that aren’t offered out-of-the-box, the typical path has generally been custom widget development… but it doesn’t always need to be. While custom development has its benefits, there can be costly drawbacks, particularly as technology evolves and custom functionality needs to be rewritten.
 
In this session, you'll learn how Geocortex is transforming widget development in Web AppBuilder. We'll show you how you can deliver custom experiences and functionality in your applications, all through configuration. See how we can add value to your investment in Esri technology with intuitive, web-based design tools to help you save time and money. Best of all, you can do it all without writing custom code!

Models, Scripts and Consultants: Guidance for Ensuring Successful Geoprocessing Outcomes
When using the ArcGIS desktop products to support geoprocessing requirements, an analyst will typically consider either, or a combination of, (1) building their own models, (2) writing their own Python code, or (3) hiring a consultant to help them. This collaborative professional development session will focus on a range of matters pertinent to these possibilities with a view to providing guidance for GIS analysts from both a technical perspective and a soft skills perspective. With respect to the former, topics will include the relative value and applicability of different approaches, how to transition from one approach to another, and the related challenges and opportunities. With respect to the latter, topics will include the benefits of seeking external support, the nature of the client-consultant relationship, and the range of reasonable expectations useful for ensuring successful outcomes. The presenters will establish a basis for collaboration using examples drawn from their current work for First American Title in Portland, which pertains to the development of tools and processes for tax lot information management. Attendees will be encouraged to build on this basis and, thus, enhance the discussion by contributing their own, examples, ideas, and responses.

Improved 9-1-1 Indoor Location Accuracy For Mobile Devices
Today more and more people rely on mobile phones as their primary phone service and are disconnecting wireline service altogether. As a result, more 9-1-1 calls are being placed from mobile phones than ever before, including inside buildings where traditional 9-1-1 mobile phone location technology does not work well. New location technology solutions are emerging that make calculation of indoor positions for mobile phones during a 9-1-1 call possible, and include major technology announcements from both Apple and Google in 2018 in this area. The ability to track mobile phones indoors during 9-1-1 calls will create new demands for 2D and 3D indoor GIS maps for 9-1-1 call takers, dispatchers, and emergency responders. This session will explore these new innovations in the 9-1-1 world, and discuss their impacts to GIS.

Map It Mobile: Integrating Legacy GIS with Modern Data Collection
Modern day asset tracking is transitioning from a two dimensional “spreadsheet view” to four dimensional, spatiotemporal asset management.
Real-time data collection and asset management is a vital tool to ensure regulatory compliance and customer safety. However, many utilities rely on disjointed legacy systems comprised of numerous spreadsheets, non-spatial databases, and GIS data. This disconnect makes implementing real-time asset management in a GIS environment complex and impractical. Want to throw caution to the wind and start collecting asset information with ArcGIS mobile solutions anyway? We did too!
By leveraging ArcGIS mobile solutions and FME Desktop the HydromaxUSA team can integrate real-time mobile data collection into legacy systems without significant database restructuring. We designed a process that allows users to interact with large datasets on their mobile devices and collect directly against existing data, regardless of connectivity.
During this presentation we’ll demonstrate ways to leverage Esri’s mobile solutions and web apps to maintain data integrity on the backend, and keep a consistent and intuitive user interface on the front end. By tailoring each solution to your company’s needs you can increase productivity while limiting room for inconsistencies in data. Come learn how we made a massive legacy geodatabase easily consumable across the entire suite of mobile apps.

ArcGIS Pro Add-ins: An Introduction for the GIS Layperson
The purpose of this collaboration session is to introduce the GIS layperson to the development of ArcGIS Pro add-ins using the .NET SDK. In doing so, the aim is to strike a respectful balance between (1) explaining add-in development to those who are new to the topic, perhaps because they are interested in learning the process themselves or because they may see a need to make use of the add-in technology, and (2) providing helpful guidance to those who are already familiar with the add-in development process and may have experience in developing add-ins for ArcGIS Desktop. The basis for the session will be an example Feature Navigation add-in, which allows a user to cycle through features visually, optionally selecting them or specifying a corresponding definition query. While the emphasis will be on ArcGIS Pro, references will also be made to an ArcGIS Desktop version of the add-in, which will serve to highlight the substantial differences between the add-in development frameworks for the two products. Attendees will be encouraged to enhance the session during a period of audience engagement.

Developing a Comprehensive “Occupancy” Database For the Eugene Springfield Fire Marshal’s Office
Eugene Springfield Fire provides fire protection and fire prevention services to the combined cities of Eugene and Springfield as well as seven surrounding contract districts. The Fire Prevention Division secured a grant to develop a database of all “potentially-inspectable occupancies” within that service territory. Lane Council of Governments (LCOG) was brought on board to a) compile an initial spatial dataset, and b) develop a mobile survey application for use by temporary field staff.
A new Feature Class was created using existing tabular occupancy records supplemented with an extensive and robust array of other tabular and spatial data that have been developed through the combined efforts of our long-standing regional data consortium. Close to 7,000 existing occupancy records were matched to regional GIS site address points, and combined with almost 7,000 additional points representing commercial, industrial, institutional, and multi-family address locations that were not yet included in the fire marshal’s records management system. These 13,800 points were then spatially joined to taxlots and tax account records. Information was added from other GIS layers, such as Census Tract, City Limits, and Fire District. Domains were constructed from existing fire marshal data, and an editable feature service was published for use in ArcGIS Online. AGO maps were used with Collector for ArcGIS and an Operations Dashboard was created in order to track surveyors’ progress

Improving Data Workflows and Integrations for Emergency Management
Eighty eight people lost their lives and 19,000 structures were destroyed in Paradise, California Camp Fire last year. Due to our interface between development and forested landscapes, wildfires poses a serious threat to the citizens and structures of Deschutes County as well. It is important that when a wildfire occurs, emergency managers can quickly and easily designate evacuation zones and other data and get that data to other agencies and the press/public for quick action. Deschutes County GIS has worked closely with our Deschutes County Emergency Managers to create maps, apps, and workflows that streamline this process. We have also collaborated with the Oregon Office of Emergency Management (OEM) to ensure our workflows integrate this data with the OEM’s RAPTOR system for statewide access.
