Michigan State - Streamlining Field Operations

Date: February 9, 2016
Time:
1pm - 2pm ET 

Presenter: 

Jade Freeman
GIS Manager
MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY
Infrastructure Planning and Facilities (IPF)
[email protected]

Summary:

The presentation will cover how MSU is streamlining field crew operations using ArcGIS Server, Portal for ArcGIS and ArcGIS Collector and Explorer. Representatives from MSU's Landscape Services department will talk about how these tools are changing ingrained habits in front line crew and are doubling productivity almost overnight.

The presentation will also cover some of the other areas we are exploring applying these tools to such as mapping building equipment locations and other building systems, how we are integrating the tools with other information systems as well as some of the challenges we've encountered rolling the tools out.

Washington State University - CrowdCartography: Mobile Crowdsourcing of University Facilities Mapping

Date: March 8, 2016
Time:
1pm - 2pm ET 

Presenter: 

Bob Nichols
Geographic Information System Developer/Analyst
WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY
Facilities Services
[email protected]


Summary:

After 40 years rapidly expanding its 1700+ acre campus, Washington State University found its primarily paper-based facilities maps were inaccessible and inaccurate. Leveraging GIS and Silverlight, we built a crowdsourcing web app that enables everyone in the 375 person Facilities Department to look at the same maps and data and, importantly, update this data as they work in the field. We will share lessons learned designing a crowdsourcing user experience with GIS that has saved the university time and money.

Moving from Data to Solutions: Integrating GIS, Document Management and FAMIS

Date: April 12, 2016
Time:
1pm - 2pm ET 

Presenter: 

Elizabeth Goetz
CAD/GIS Technician
UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO BOULDER
Facilities Management
[email protected]

Summary:

This presentation will cover the GIS FM solutions at UC Boulder, focusing on the ongoing process of bridging the gap between GIS and other Facilities Management databases. The goal of this process is to integrate existing database resources with our GIS solutions to prevent redundancy and improve transparency of information within the organization. The demonstration will focus on using Open Spatial’s Enlighten webmap as a tool for viewing GIS data combined with data from other sources and linking to other online resources. The University of Colorado Boulder uses Open Spatial’s Munsys GIS platform and Enlighten Bi web map, Blue Cielo Meridian Document Management System, and FAMIS asset/work management system. We are also working to integrate existing systems with Esri Enterprise solutions.
