PRESENTATION: Utilizing ArcGIS Online to Inventory Historical Resources
AUTHORS: Simon Corson*, Town of Amherst New Hampshire

ABSTRACT: This presentation explains how the Town of Amherst, New Hampshire has utilized ArcGIS Online to support the Amherst Historic District Commission (HDC) and Amherst Heritage Commission (HC). The HDC is a regulatory board responsible for overseeing 316 properties. The HC is an advisory board charged with inventorying historical and cultural resources, as well as assist property owners in preservation efforts._x000D_
To assist the HDC, Amherst's Community Development Department created a map that makes the National Register Nomination Form tabular, shares basic assessing information, includes all past HDC applications, Certificates of Approval/Denial as attachments, and visualizes building footprints and parcel data provided by the Nashua Regional Planning Commission. The HDC uses this map during public hearings to explain their findings to the public and to do basic analysis. For example, when the HDC is deliberating about setbacks from character defining features, they may use ArcGIS Online tools to get a general understanding of sight distance, public view, etc. _x000D_
For the HC, the Community Development Department created a web application in ArcGIS Online to share the Town's heritage sites documented in the Heritage Resource Survey. The Heritage Resource Survey was produced by Elizabeth Durfee Hengen in 2009 through a grant from the National Park Service and in partnership with the New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources. The HC uses the 2009 Survey as the format for the web application, while adding relevant texts and photos to existing and new heritage sites as appropriate.

PRESENTATION: ArcGIS Online workflows and best management practises
AUTHORS: Chandreyee Lahiri*, MA Dept. of Conservation & Recreation (DCR)

ABSTRACT: Robert Burns had it right with 'The best laid schemes of mice and men, often go awry'. The poet might have well been alluding to landmines in GIS data development and maintenance. The buffet of ESRI ArcGIS Online methods for data collection and querying, are predicated on thorough and efficient workflows and long-views to glean the most out of the technologies. The worst returns on time and resources invested in data come from incompletely visioned data schema and un-tested workflows._x000D_
This presentation will focus on soup-to-nuts workflows involving desktop data schema design, using Collector app for fieldwork and Web app builder/Operations dashboard. Workflows are aimed at creating data sets, maintaining them over time (including history) and developing end user products (maps, apps, reports etc) to leverage the data created. It will also touch on the tips in the training and support for different levels of users to best execute goals._x000D_
Case studies used to illustrate workflows derive from natural resource management. This includes: Streetlights, Rooftops, Playgrounds, Coastal vegetation, Storm Damage, Management Regions etc._x000D_
At the Dept. of Conservation & Recreation, we work continually on evolving new methodologies to serve all levels and types of users involved in managing the Commonwealths resources, both natural and human-made.
