MAGTUG Free Geospatial Webinar – Tue Apr 18 HD-LiDAR and more

The Mid-Atlantic Geospatial Transportation Group hosts a webinar series on pertinent Geospatial and Transportation topics providing information to help Engineer, Inventory, Manage, Plan, and Innovate our transportation systems.

Please join us for our next webinar…

Tuesday, April 18 – 10:00am EST (1 hour)
HD-LiDAR Design-Scale Ready

HD-LiDAR from Axis Geospatial LLC

This session will demonstrate how the latest aerial HD-LiDAR (High Definition / High Density) sensors dual-equipped with color aerial cameras are redefining the technical approach to surveying and mapping for design-scale applications. Live demonstrations on the data and accuracy will be provided. If you haven’t experienced HD-LiDAR data, this demonstration will undoubtedly impress. Most importantly, we will discuss how engineers, land surveyors and GIS professionals incorporates this new technology into their workflow. HD-LiDAR is quickly replacing the photogrammetric approach – this session will demonstrate why.

NJ Transit Trailblazer Sign Inventory and Management

New Jersey Transit employed the services of Greenman-Pedersen, Inc. (GPI) to improve NJ Transit’s roadway trail blazing sign system located along roadways in proximity to the Raritan Valley rail line. NJ Transit owns and maintains signs along New Jersey roadways that direct motorists to the most convenient railway stop. GPI inventoried signs and suggested updated placement of signs based upon the results. This presentation will outline the steps taken to make this project successful.

MANAGING THE STREET EXCAVATION PERMITTING PROCESS IN THE RIGHT OF WAY

Tue, February 21, 2017 – 10:00am EST (1 hour)

The Philadelphia Streets Department is responsible for managing and regulating the roadway Right-of-Way (“ROW”) for the City of Philadelphia. As such, the Department is required to issue street opening permits, which allows utilities to excavate City streets in order to install or maintain their infrastructure. The Department is also responsible for paving City maintained streets and for coordinating work on state maintained streets. This coordination was managed in the Guaranteed Pavement Information System (“GPIS”) which connects departments and organizations in and outside of the City.

The City replaced the legacy GPIS system with a modern, web-based, scalable system. The new GPIS provides the flexibility, scalability, and interoperability needed to meet both current requirements and future phases of the new system. Features of the new system include project tracking, utility clearance notification, and reporting. In addition, an advanced GIS mapping component provides users with the ability to identify project locations, collaborate with existing City ROW project owners, and manage project conflicts.

ACCESSABILITY MEASUREMENT MADE EASY WITH SUGAR ACCESS

Accessibility has become an increasingly popular topic and metric moving forward in transportation planning. Metrics such as access to jobs and accessibility scores for walking have become a popular way to determine how well our transportation systems are delivering people to their desired destinations. In fact, they are even used in real estate for gauging desirability of a property. This presentation highlights a new easy to use tool which allows planners to conduct accessibility analysis using a prepackaged and integrated data source. Sugar Access, an ArcGIS add-in, allows planners to understand the public’s ability to walk or bike to their daily errands, analyze the benefits of bike infrastructure improvements, and compute the increased accessibility resulting from simple transit improvements. Model and compare future scenarios and integrate with ArcGIS Online to easily share the benefits of a project with stakeholders.

Presenter: Robert T. Kohler of CitiLabs

Citilabs’ mission is to empower those who shape the future with impactful mobility analytics tools. The company engineers software, analyzes data and provides professional services to understand, model, and predict the movement of people and goods. Their products and services provide the backbone of operational and predictive transportation systems in more than 2,500 cities in 70 countties across 6 continents.

CLOUD ENVIRONMENT FOR VISUALIZATION OF FIELD DATA

Weston Solutions has put together and tested architecture for being able to quickly setup Geo-Spatial Portals (web viewers) for their clients during field deployments.  This is based on 20+ years of supporting clients for Emergency Response.  Starting in 2010/2011 they moved this architecture to the Cloud for greater flexibility and have been able to implement both on Client Procured and Weston Procured Cloud Environments.  More than a traditional transportation topic, the presentation addresses accessibility to resources, data and infrastructure, and the tools that enable that accessibility in times of emergency.

Presenter:  Brad Morgan, IT Practice Director, Weston Solutions

Weston Solutions, Inc. is an employee-owned environmental management company serving federal/state/local government and commercial/industrial clients.  Mr. Morgan has worked for Weston since 2000 primarily supporting large federal contracts in an IT leadership role.  Mr. Morgan has deployed to some of the largest emergency responses in US history including Space Shuttle Columbia Response, Hurricanes Katrina/Rita, Ike, Gustave, Sandy and more and has also supported Deep Water Horizon and Enbridge Oil Spills, and gold King Mine Release in Colorado.
