Intro to ArcObjects

Presented by: Lawrence Hartpence | GIS Analyst | City of West Des Moines

This talk is designed to give exposure to those who have no experience in ArcObjects and to hopefully provide some useful tips to those who are experienced in ArcObjects. We will demonstrate creating an AddIn through Visual Studio, creating a form and building a simple query utilizing interfaces from ArcObjects. We will also show how to use ArcObjects to quickly edit attributes.

I started my GIS career as a tech for the Idaho Department of Game. I moved to Iowa in 1999 and landed a job at Jasper County to build their GIS and coordinate GIS initiates with the different county offices as well the incorporated towns within the county. Since 2009, the city of West Des Moines has employed me to support Westcom, a consolidated dispatch center serving West Des Moines, Clive, Urbandale, Waukee and Norwalk.

Morning Break

Morning break in the Ballroom

3D printing physical terrain models made easy with TouchTerrain
10:15 am - 11:15 am
Chris Harding, ISU

Presented by: Chris Harding | Associate Professor | Iowa State University

Low-cost 3D printers can now print small (5 x 5 inch) 3D terrain models for under $10. Such terrain models can support learning about landscape forms, geologic features, human impact, infrastructure planning, etc. Touch terrain ( makes it easy to select an area from a google maps interface and download the file(s) required for 3D printing the area’s terrain. You can exaggerate the elevation and even create multiple tiles to glue together into bigger 3D maps. I will show examples of 3D printed terrain, talk about 3D printing technology in general, show how to use the web application and close with lessons learned. A small 3D printer will be shown in action.

Chris Harding is an Associate Professor with the Department of Geological and Atmospheric Sciences at Iowa State University
