Topic: Overview of 3D Visualizations — The presentation talks about two 3D visualization projects by applying different technologies. 3D city models represent existing buildings in urban areas and support planning, analysis and decision making. The ESRI CityEngine is applied to visualize a transportation planning model.

Presenter: Helen Peng, GISP — Helen Peng is a GIS Analyst/Developer at University of Georgia (UGA) Facilities Management Department (FMD). She updates GIS utilities data and creates interactive web maps for geospatial requests. She has been working in 3D visualizations for over a decade and applies ArcCityEngine and SketchUp to create 3D city models. Ms. Peng holds a GISP certificate and M.S. Landscape Architecture at Washington State University.

Topic: A Web GIS Inventory Database — Using the ArcGIS REST API, GeoJobe, FME and Postgres, you can develop a database linking SDE feature classes to the REST services they are used in, and then to the web maps that consume those services. This allows you to answer questions such as “if I change the database password for this user, which web maps will be affected when I republish services?” This project is a work in progress; the presentation is intended to both share what has been done to date as well as to solicit feedback and suggestions for improvement.

Presenter: Scott Sirotkin — Scott works as the GIS Coordinator at Newton County. His focus is on database management, scripting/FME and web GIS. He has a City Planning Masters degree from Georgia Tech.
