Speaker: Brady Hustad
Date: Tuesday, July 09
Time: 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Room: SDCC - Room 28 E

Rapid advancements in spatial awareness and display capabilities of mobile devices and headsets are powering innovative simulations and augmentations of reality with authoritative geospatial data. The ArcGIS Platform is critical for hosting geospatial data and operations, powering 3D capabilities, and enabling immersive mixed reality experiences. This meeting will include presentations from customers who build augmented, virtual, and mixed reality (AR/VR/MR) solutions on the ArcGIS platform.


GeoSpatial Asset Management: A Solution for Damage Prevention Professionals

Speaker: Brian Collison
Session Title: Operations Efficiency and Mobility
Date: Tuesday, July 9, 2019
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Room: SDCC - Room 25 B

Whiting has addressed an information gap between techs and contractors by creating a 'hub' for sharing geospatial information. They engaged Argis Solutions to develop a new 'project' management system which uses Workforce for ArcGIS and the Argis AR framework. This system has a desktop component and a secure mobile component to share information with external parties. Tickets can be shown as projected mapped assets in augmented reality, overlaid on a job site; with editable maps and tickets.

Tech Talk Series: Map Literacy in Field Operations

map-literacy.jpg

In the article “Mobile Applications take GIS to the FIeld”, Christa Campbell comments on a ripple effect of benefits when organizations implement Web GIS and mobile applications in the field. Map literacy can be the Achilles' heel of field team efficiency. The truth is often field crews can have a limited understanding of maps and how to read them, much to their manager’s consternation. Driving adoption internally can be a daunting task without the right tool. How do you go from paper to digital? The answer is to show the maps in AR to field operators. This bypasses the need to be map savvy by bringing the map directly into the situation operators know and understand deeply. It opens the doors for more efficient use of man hours and can improve the overall quality of GIS data over time.  Join this webinar to learn more about how our clients are gaining traction in the adoption process, the benefits of ArcGIS mobile applications, and why AR is changing the way field operations see their maps. 

This will be a 40-minute online presentation with time for Q&A at the end.

Mobile Data Collection: past, present, and future & AR Hands-on Workshop

Presented by GIS Colorado

Training Part 1: Mobile Data Collection: Past Present and Future
Trainer: David Siddle, Frontier Precision
Date and Time: May 2, 2019 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

Training Part 2: Closing The Field Communication Gap: AR Hands-on Workshop
Trainer: Brian Collison, Argis Solutions
Date and Time: May 2, 2019 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Location: Claremont Inn and Winery, 800 Claremont St, Stratton, CO 80836

Cost: $70 for members, $95 for non-members

The morning session will include traditional GPS/GNSS workflows as a lecture/instructional session followed by cloud based workflows and “shiny new objects” (handheld LiDAR, for example).  One-on-one Q&A and/or troubleshooting specific issues and equipment will be included. Bring your own equipment, issues, questions, and ideas to share!

The afternoon session will tackle the challenge of sharing GIS data with contractors and other organizations when in the field by using Augmented Reality as a communication tool. Learn how to use the Argis Lens with an ArcGIS online account and the benefit of having field stakeholders instantly on the same page.   Argis Solutions will provide tablets and GPS for the class to work in groups, but if you want to bring your own please let us know so your access can be set up ahead of time.  

Recommended : iPads 2017 iOS devices with AX9+ chipsets, Bluetooth GPS.  A demo AGOL rest point will also be provided.

The classes dovetail in many areas so a full day of hands-on, practical data collection and communication for today and for the future is in the works.  You don’t want to miss this one!

GITA Webinar: Disruptive Tech in GIS: What’s science and what’s fiction?

GITA Webinar Part 2 - Disruptive Tech in GIS: What’s science and what’s fiction? 

Geospatial data has developed immensely over the last 20 years, but it has always been about communicating location and information. In our lifetimes we have seen the movement of GIS data moving from being confined to personal computers, to being shared on the web. Now, anyone can look at a map on their handheld phones. Where is this new mobile technology taking us?

This is a free event, but participants must register.
