More Efficient “Field” Data Collection and Property Review: Street-Level Imagery Case Studies


Presented by: Jennifer Kuntz | CycloMedia Technology, Inc.
From New York City to Mason City, local governments are using positionally-accurate, high-resolution, street-level imagery to reduce the need for field visits, speed workflows and reduce transportation costs. Transportation and public works departments complete asset data collection projects more quickly and without leaving the office. Desktop reappraisal for assessors is enhanced with a clear view of building condition and grade as well as address verification. Assessors can also capture images of structures for property reports and websites. Ability to integrate with exiting systems, including ArcGIS, makes access simple. This session will describe projects in several organizations that benefit from adding this valuable resource to their GIS toolset.

Jennifer Kuntz, GISP is a solution engineer at CycloMedia Technology, Inc. and is based in St. Louis, Missouri. Prior to joining CycloMedia in December 2015, Jennifer held various roles at Esri, most recently as a solution engineer in their St. Louis office and has primarily worked with local governments in the Midwest, with a particular interest in land records. Her interests include helping customers establish effective and efficient workflows to take fullest advantage of the technologies at their disposal.

The(USGS 3D Elevation Program (3DEP)


Presented by: Jim Langtry | US Geological Survey
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Geospatial Program is developing the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) to respond to growing needs for high-quality topographic data and for a wide range of other three-dimensional (3D) representations of the Nation's natural and constructed features. The primary goal of 3DEP is to systematically collect 3D elevation data in the form of light detection and ranging (lidar) data over the conterminous United States, Hawaii, and the U.S. territories, with data acquired over an 8-year period. Interferometric synthetic aperture radar (ifsar) data will be acquired for Alaska, where cloud cover and remote locations preclude the use of lidar in much of the State. The 3DEP initiative is based on the results of the National Enhanced Elevation Assessment that documented more than 600 business uses across 34 Federal agencies, all 50 States, selected local government and Tribal offices, and private and nonprofit organizations. The transportation industry has the potential to derive substantial benefits from the 3DEP program. A fully funded and implemented 3DEP would provide more than $690 million annually in new benefits to government entities, the private sector, and citizens. Today, about $50 million is invested annually in lidar and ifsar data by all public agencies, and the U.S. Interagency Elevation Inventory shows that only four percent of the lower 49 States and territories has lidar data that meet the quality levels needed. An additional $96 million is needed annually to implement 3DEP. This would result in a nearly 5:1 return on investment, save lives, and improve our environment through informed decisions. Key components of a 3DEP are a cooperative funding model, options for data quality upgrades to meet State and local needs, and partnerships designed to bring Federal agencies, academia, corporate entities, states, tribes, and communities together to develop advanced 3-dimensional mapping data of the United States.

Jim is employed by the US Geological Survey as the National Liaison for Nebraska, Iowa, and Kansas, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. He received a Master’s Degree in Geography in 2003 from the University of Nebraska and has over 30 years of experience in GIS being involved with the development of the Lancaster County Nebraska GIS since it’s inception in 1988. In 2007 he went to work for the USGS to be the Geospatial Liaison for Nebraska and has since picked up additional states. He was on the development committee that created the Nebraska GIS/LIS Association and served as a member of the Board and as President of that Association. He has also served on the Nebraska GIS Council, the Iowa Geographic Information Committee, and the Kansas GIS Council for several years, and has also served as the Chair of the Mid-America GIS Consortium (MAGIC) from 2006 – 2010.

Rebooting and Building GIS at Iowa City
10:30 am - 11:30 am
E.J. McNaughton, City of Iowa City


Presented by: E.J. McNaughton | GIS Coordinator | City of Iowa City

When I came on board at the City of Iowa City, there had been several attempts at building and organizing GIS. However, there wasn’t centralized authority or dedicated personnel to accomplish these tasks. There were so many questions: How\Where do you start? What is here already? What do you build or rebuild? How do you organize? How do you educate? This presentation will be a discussion of the process Iowa City went through to build GIS into a stable and valuable tool for all Departments and workflows. We will discuss the good steps we made as well as steps we would do differently. The intent is to bring insight into evaluating your GIS setup and how to improve what you already have invested.

E.J. McNaughton has been the GIS Coordinator for the City of Iowa City since June of 2017. Prior to this he spent 15 years in the same position at the Indiana Department of Environmental Management where he was a leader in GIS development within State Government. From 1994 to 2001, E.J. spent time in the private sector working in various capacities for Mid-States Engineering (MSE) and Analytical Surveys in Indianapolis. E.J. grew up outside of St. Louis and continues to have many ties to the area.

What’s in YOUR Wastewater?


Presented by: Evan Koester | GIS Coordinator | City of Waukee

When talking about wastewater, what we consider waste and anonymous contains a lot of personal information and can be traced surprisingly accurately to its source. After a quick explanation of how existing sanitary sewer systems work, you'll see how a handful of groups around the world test and trace wastewater for illicit drugs. We'll address what kind of questions and conclusions can come from these tests. No pictures, I promise.

Shot in the Dark: A Cold Case Homicide Case Study
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Anthony Kava, Pottawattamie County

Bio: Anthony Kava is a digital forensics examiner, reserve deputy in the Pottawattamie County Sheriff's Office, and a self-described "tactical computer geek". He has nearly a decade of experience doing digital forensics examinations and has been assigned to the Iowa Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force since 2009. Kava holds multiple certifications and, if pressed, admits to fifteen years of IT experience with an emphasis in security and open source software like Linux. He has performed forensic examinations and assisted with Internet investigations in hundreds of cases, testified as an expert witness in state and federal court, and enjoys telling students of all ages that it's good to be a hacker.

Less than a mile away from the Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s Office in Council Bluffs, Iowa, a woman is shot during a nighttime stroll in a public park. It's the latest in a bizarre series of events, three years into a five-year missing person investigation. Bringing a killer to justice, after years of impersonating their victim, will take thousands of hours of investigative work, over sixty search warrants, hundreds of pages of reports, and, finally, two weeks of testimony leading to a conviction for first-degree murder in a case without a body. This case was featured in the September 2017 Dateline NBC episode, "Scorned". This session is an abbreviated version of a case study that will include details on the digital forensics required to tie dozens of impersonations and years of activity back to a dangerous suspect.
