PRESENTATION: Leveraging ArcGIS Online for ADA Curb Ramp Inventories
AUTHORS: Kristina Sargent* - VHB_x000D_; Dale Abbott*, GISP - VHB

ABSTRACT: In the Fall of 2018, VHB assisted the Rhode Department of Transportation (RIDOT) in conducting an evaluation of their State-owned curb ramps to assess ADA compliance within the State. RIDOT had previously developed a comprehensive paper-based form to support prior evaluations. However, that information was difficult to manage, required office manual input into spreadsheets, and lacked spatial coordinates. Using Esri's ArcGIS Online Platform, VHB replicated the paper form with customized smart forms using Survey123, captured GPS locations using Collector for ArcGIS, and leveraged Operations Dashboard to track the status of the field data collection. Additionally, Operations Dashboard was used to develop an Esri Story Map of Dashboards for RIDOT staff, providing valuable insight on curb ramp locations. This presentation will provide an overview of the ADA curb ramp inventory and demo the configuration of Survey123 and Operations Dashboard. This presentation will provide an overview of the ADA Curb Ramp inventory, and detail the Esri solutions implemented within the project.

PRESENTATION: Leveraging Advanced GIS Technology on Municipal LED Street Light Replacement Projects.
AUTHORS: Lauren Sutherland* - VHB_x000D_; Dale Abbott* GISP - VHB

ABSTRACT: Municipalities across the country are replacing their high-pressure sodium (HPS) street lights with more efficient light-emitting diode (LED) fixtures. VHB is leveraging the latest web GIS and mobile data collection technology in support of LED street light retrofits projects throughout NH and ME. This presentation will identify how Esri's ArcGIS Online Platform is used to conduct the field audit process, demonstrate how web mapping is used as a system of engagement between the municipality and the contractor, and illustrate how administrative dashboards can be used to track the entire LED retrofit process. Key Technology: Collector for ArcGIS, Operations Dashboard, and ArcGIS Online.

PRESENTATION: Digitizing Municipal Transportation Workflows
AUTHORS: Quinn Molloy, MassDOT GIS

ABSTRACT: MassDOT is adding the new Road Inventory Submission Application (RISA) to the suite of municipal tools available on geoDOT. With this addition, we hope to inspire creative new ways for agencies to develop and maintain data. RISA allows local governments to edit their road data online, greatly improving the efficiency and accuracy of local data while lending transparency to a historically opaque process. MassDOT staff have used the debut of the new software to engage with communities on how they use GIS today, and which of their processes could benefit from the centralized geospatial infrastructure afforded to users with geoDOT access. It is the goal of the agency to continue to better connect local staff with the resources they need and creating a collaborative environment for all levels of government in the transportation sector.
