Working Together: Unlocking the Data in Your Staff’s Mind

In every community in the GISC Consortium there is a wealth of institutional knowledge about assets, property information, street conditions, etc. Problems occur when only one person or department knows an important piece of information about an area or when someone retires without documenting these important pieces of information. The challenge is getting this knowledge from a single person and their memory, and into usable forms so each staff member can obtain as much information as they possibly can. This webinar will demonstrate different methods of getting data from the people in the know into easy to use platforms. Examples will range from how to get utility information out of field worker’s heads, to how to get any piece of information about an address documented so all staff know as much as they can about a property.


What you will learn:

  • How to use the ESRI Collector Application to make utility edits
  • How to use Access Databases to enable all staff to add important information about a property
  • How to extract data from AutoCAD and import it directly into GIS
  • How to create workflows to get important information into GIS


We look forward to your participation and feedback. Please forward to whoever you think might be interested.
