Title: GIS -- Crucial IT Infrastructure for Enterprise Applications


1
GIS -- Crucial IT Infrastructurefor Enterprise
Applications
  • Chris North
  • Director of Technology Strategy
  • ESRI Canada

2
What is an Enterprise?
  • An enterprise is an organization or community of
    interest tasked with supporting a defined mission
  • An enterprise consists of all the people,
    processes and systems within an organization
  • Successful enterprises enable ready exchange of
    appropriate information

3
GIS in the Municipal Enterprise is Evolving
4
Redefine your view of GIS
  • GIS organizes geographic knowledge into reusable
    business logic.

Shifting Focus of GIS Implementations
5
GIS Depends on a Data Infrastructure
  • Data created and managed in a GIS can be used by
    multiple departments for a wide variety of
    applications.

Economic Development
Public Works
Environment
Transportation
Planning
GIS Data is the Dial Tone of many Municipal
Applications
6
Case StudyTownship of Langley, BC Migration
from CAD to GIS
  • While it is always challenging to move data and
    maintenance procedures from a legacy CAD
    environment to a GIS environment
  • the power, flexibility and extensible nature of
    ESRI products have enabled us to make that
    transition while enhancing our service levels to
    staff and citizens.
  • Steve Scheepmaker,
  • Manager Geomatics Services,
  • Township of Langley

7
What is Server GIS?
  • Centralize GIS data, GIS Services and GIS
    applications
  • Helps to eliminate data concurrency issues
  • Permits remote access and maintenance of GIS
  • Accommodate unique workflows
  • Facilitates effective communication and decision
    making

8
What Is Server GIS?
9
Services for visualization
  • 2D Map service
  • Dynamic or cached
  • 3D Globe services
  • Cached only
  • Image services
  • Provided byArcGIS ImageServer andArcGIS Server

10
Case StudyCity of Laval ,Quebec Infrastructure
Management
One of the most important benefits of taking a
geomatics based approach is that it has greatly
simplified the process of managing all types of
assets and data within a single system. -Denis
Corbo, Corporate Project Coordinator, Operations
Systems Management, City of Laval
11
Services that provide functionality
  • Tracking services
  • Geoprocessing services
  • Geocoding services
  • Network analysis services

12
Case StudyCity of St. Johns, NL Snow Removal
Asset Tracking
The benefit of better managing our fleet of over
100 vehicles has resulted in great financial
savings for us ... We have been able to access
information quickly and easily which helps us
improve future operations. -Neil A. Martin,
Director, Information and Corporate Services,
City Clerk and Associate Commissioner City of St.
Johns
13
Services for remote access to data
  • Geodata services
  • Create local copies of remote data
  • Execute database queries
  • Synchronize edits with the replica database
  • Mobile data access
  • Update geodatabase from the field
  • Remotely synchronize changes
  • Map service with Mobileaccess enabled

14
Case StudyCity of Toronto, ON Long term
preventative maintenance
of sidewalk and pavement assets
We now have the tools necessary to provide more
timely data for the development and co-ordination
of capital programs in efforts to secure funding
from City Council. -Mark Berkovitz, Senior
Engineer, City of Toronto
15
Advantages of SOA
  • SOA Design maximizes code reusability
  • Multiple applications access same core services

311 Call Centre Application
School Finder Website
Enterprise Service Bus
Increases System Agility
16
GIS Servers Can Be Easily IntegratedWith Other
Enterprise Systems
Public Health Information Disease Surveillance
Web Services Messaging
Application
Other Enterprise Systems (SAP)
. . . Open, Flexible, and Standards Based
17
Case StudyCounty of Essex, ON Improving access
to information and
service delivery through web mapping
  • Not only was this (online mapping service request
    tool) a user friendly solution to implement and
    use, it seamlessly integrates with our work
    management software that runs in conjunction with
    our GIS.
  • Wendy St. Amour, Manager of Information
    Technology
  • Essex County

Utility SOA Demo
19
Characteristics of Enterprise Technology
  • Regarded as key to mission achievement
  • Scalable, extensible, reliable and secure
  • Open, interoperable and standards-based
  • Capable of being effectively integrated within
    the enterprise
  • May be complex to implement--requires significant
    planning and support
  • Delivers a high return-on-investment

20
Implementing a server GIS
  • Understand your business problem and processes
  • Keep the users in mind
  • Think about scalability and future growth
  • Gain management support
  • Have a detailed plan of
  • System architecture
  • Security
  • Implementation model
  • Keep it simple!

21
Making the case for GISSupporting Situational
Awareness and a Common Operationg Picture
  • Situational Awareness
  • Knowing and understanding events around
    youPredicting how it will change with time
  • Being unified with the dynamics of your
    environment
  • Common Operational Picture (COP)
  • Integration and fusion of various data into
    information that can be understood, shared and
    acted upon.
  • An identical display of relevant information
    shared by more than one level of command
  • A COP facilitates collaborative planning and
    assists all levels to achieve Situational
    Awareness.

22
Information management Challenges
  • Timely access to plans and information
  • Integrating various types of information into
    actionable information
  • Operational Awareness before, during and after an
    Emergency
  • Too many consoles
  • Too little connectivity
  • Too much complexity
  • Too much information

23
To effectively address these Challenges, GIS must
be able to . . .
  • Acquire, Integrate and Fuse all types of Data
  • Optimize Mitigation and Preparedness thru better
    Planning and Analysis
  • Effectively Allocate Resources
  • Get Information Into and Out of the Field
  • Effectively support Operations on the Ground
  • Get Timely Operational Awareness before, during
    and after an Incident
