Tom KennyTomTomBeyond the Destination: The Importance of Your Data in Defining the JourneyHistorically, the phrase “You have reached your destination” has been synonymous with successful navigation and routing, no matter which device or application is being utilized. However, as the era of autonomous vehicles approaches, the need for a wider variety of map features and higher accuracy of map data becomes more important than ever. Technological advances will not replace the required context that the location-based content can provide, and the expectations will continue to be raised to include the overall experience of the trip, not simply a successful arrival at the destination. This drives the importance of the collaboration amongst a variety of stakeholders, local experts, and authoritative data owners to maximize the impact of the “journey,” which incorporates both static and dynamic map content to provide the best possible holistic mobility experience – whether it be from the driver’s perspective, the logistics perspective, or the residual impacts of transportation upon the community. Success is nurtured through this understanding, which helps to promote a participatory evolution, from constraint to complacency to contribution. In recognition of this, TomTom continues to proactively adapt to the ever-changing location technology environment to remain an industry leader. During this session, we will explore some of the elements and recent initiatives which help differentiate us from the competition and create better alignment with government requirements, and provide an update on collaborative opportunities with TomTom.Geek
Tom CanterFlorida Department of Revenue, Property Tax Oversight ProgramDOR’s Role in Parcel Mapping - It’s All About ParcelsThe Property Tax Oversight program within the Florida Department of Revenue is charged with ensuring that statutory and administrative code rule requirements for parcel mapping are fulfilled in each county property appraiser’s office. Mapping requirements for parcel maps have been in place since the mid 70’s. Since that point in time parcel mapping has evolved from drawing with pencil and pen on various media to being maintained in a GIS as we know it today. This presentation will take a look at some of the changes in parcel mapping over time and how the Department of Revenue’s oversight has evolved from a position of assistance to property appraisers in the development of GIS parcel mapping to one of evaluation of compliance with existing requirements.Guru
Shaun DavisTessellationTableau: From flat files to deep insightsCome see the possibilities to extend your organization’s data with Tableau. Together we will build a clean, insight rich dashboard from non-spatial, open data and publish it to Tableau Public. Tableau Desktop is a leading data visualization tool which enables users to build insight right dashboards and visualizations quickly. It enables user to combine maps, charts and tables together for truly self-service analytics. We will also use Tableau Prep Builder to make repeatable workflows that enable us to find more insights from the dataset.Geek
Michael NesiusCity of Tallahassee, Stormwater/Underground UtilitiesUsing JavaScript Frameworks with the ArcGIS API: Getting Started, with Examples Using ReactIntegrating the ArcGIS JavaScript API with other JavaScript frameworks provides a powerful way to build custom web applications. This presentation will provide a “getting started” roadmap for desktop/scripting GIS developers to parlay their skills into the great wide world of web development. We’ll review the myriad of resources offered by Esri, how to set up your development environment, look at the basics of the big 3 (React, Vue, and Angular), and spend some time delving into examples with React. With React, we’ll go over how to manage your application state, create custom form components for attribute editing, and use Redux actions to post your edits back to your feature service.Guru

Zoltek, PSM, CP, CFedS, GISPWoolpert, Inc.Lidar Data and Supporting Coastal Resilience PlanningCoastal resilience is defined by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Ocean Service as proactively building a community’s capacity to “bounce back” from hazardous events such as hurricanes, coastal storms and flooding before a disaster takes place. For a state like Florida, whose geography, elevation and topography make it vulnerable to storm surges, susceptible to hurricanes and predisposed to sinkholes, coastal resilience is not an option—it’s a necessity. Woolpert has been busy this year as part of the statewide team capturing 35,000 square miles of QL1 lidar across the state of Florida. This data, along with FDOT Coastal Mapping projects, are providing the level of accuracy and detail needed to support coastal resiliency efforts throughout Florida. This data can be used to support semi-automated feature extraction algorithms to map sea wall elevations, impervious surface data and critical infrastructure along every inch of the urban coastlines. We will also discuss the statewide mission to get the data in the hands of the people quickly and easily through cloud-based services to provide stakeholders a streamlined way to leverage the investment of the data collection.Geek
