Grimes Information Service (Building a new ArcGIS Enterprise)
10:30 am - 11:30 am

In this presentation, we will discuss the key steps involved in creating and launching a new ArcGIS Enterprise platform. We will start by examining the hardware and software requirements, as well as security considerations that are essential for a successful multi-machine deployment. We will then cover the installation and configuration process, including how to set up the ArcGIS Enterprise portal, and GIS servers. Finally, we will explore how to publish and share content using ArcGIS Enterprise, as well as how to manage and maintain the platform to ensure its ongoing success. Please join us to learn how to create a powerful GIS solution that will enable your organization to make informed decisions and drive better outcomes.

Don’t Call It an Experience…

Experience Builder provides the opportunity for a positive compromise with field techs, managers, and the GIS team. Typically, crews and office folk want all the information in one map. Referencing Super String Theory and the band Gogol Bordello, I call these maps “Super Maps of Super Everything” for good purpose. As anyone in the IT or GIS fields knows, this request kills response time and practically crushes any attempt at data coherence. But, Experience Builder offers an effective means to provide a single URL while keeping to the specifics that the GIS professional will want to enforce to provide effective tools.
This presentation will cover some of the basics and growing pains I had while learning the new app to design an Experience for the supervisor of electric field crews. This single URL fused dashboards for pole removal and various annual inspections. Following that, the talk will continue with the electric field crews’ views in one URL.

Presenter: Gabriel Jones - Muscatine Power & Water
Gabriel Jones discovered the GIS profession after careers in teaching and journalism. While working at the weekly newspaper Scott County News, he wrote a feature story about a Holocaust survivor speaking to local students, which received a Tennessee Press Association award. Having first earned a Bachelor’s of Arts in History, Political Science, and Russian and East European Studies from the University of Kentucky; he returned for a Master of Arts in Social Studies Secondary Education before retooling with a certificate in GIS at Bluegrass Community and Technical College. Beginning his GIS career in the McCreary County Property Valuation Assessor’s office, he switched to the private sector in Louisville mainly focused on the company’s cross bore gas leak detection programs. Gabriel earned his GISP in 2018. He moved to Iowa with his wife, Terri, and two cats to work for Muscatine Power and Water in 2019.

"New" State Plane Coordinates for Iowa!

State Plane Coordinate Systems (SPCS) who needs them, and why do I care if they are new or different then our current SPCS? The next question to ask yourself is, how do I prepare for the new Iowa SPCS? These are the questions the presentation will attempt to address.
The SPCS are designed and implemented by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration’s National Geodetic Survey (NGS). NGS provides the framework for all positioning activities in the nation. In 2007 NGS began planning for the modernized National Spatial Reference System (NSRS) and later targeted 2022 as the date of the release for the modernized NSRS. The 2022 release date has been delayed however, the 2022 naming convention will remain.
Congruent with the modernized National Spatial Reference System, NGS is replacing the current reference framework (NAD83), upon which the existing Iowa State Plane North and South Zones are constructed. In addition to replacing the NAD83 horizontal datum, NGS is also replacing the NAVD1988 vertical datum. A new State Plane Coordinate System based on the new reference framework has been developed by NGS and adopted by the State of Iowa. The existing Iowa State Plane North(1401) and Iowa State Plane South(1402) Zones will be replaced by fourteen Low Distortion Zones.
New reference frames, new state plane coordinates and finally a new definition of the length of a foot. The United States Survey Foot will be retired and replaced with the International Foot. This presentation will cover a brief history of mapping reference frames, the new 2022 datums, state plane coordinate systems, low distortion projections and the retirement of the US Survey Foot.
