Learn about how local engineering firms are applying GIS and geospatial analysis to emergency response and archeology projects.
We'll be hearing from two presenters about how they manage and analyze complex geospatial data to drive decision-making related to planning and construction projects.
1. Data Life Cycle for Emergency Response by Marlen Kokaz-Roy of Weston Solutions
This presentation will show the life cycle for data management during emergency responses. The process starts with data collection in the field (with Collector, Survey123, FileMaker like technology), and extends all the way to the lab and visualization via viewers, reports, and story maps, based on the client needs.
2. The Spatial Data Science Workflow for I-95 Reconstruction Archaeology by Matt Harris and Mary Lennon of the AECOM Geospatial Data Services, Cultural Resources Department
Recent archaeological discoveries from along the Delaware River Waterfront are part of AECOM’s long-term multi-phased project to improve and rebuild Interstate 95 (I-95). From project inception to completion, spatial data is a part of the archaeological process from field survey to reporting. At AECOM, the principals and practices of Spatial Data Science influence everything from creating robust databases, to historic elevation models, and an interactive dual facing online smart report for the public and client alike (diggingi95.com). This presentation will explore every step, from born digital data, using GPS and tablets, to story maps on the smart report.
