    Title: Where’s the Waste? : Proposed Residential Solid Waste Collection Routes in New Providence, The Bahamas

    Description: This presentation discusses the preliminary results of an MS in GIS capstone at the University of West Florida. Since 2013, there have only been minor changes to the solid waste collection policies in the Bahamas; leading to an inconsistent collection schedule, waste overflow, and an increase in rodent population and disease spread. This project addresses the recent challenges that waste collection companies and residents face regarding timely solid waste collection in New Providence, The Bahamas, by developing and proposing official residential solid waste collection routes. Using spatial data, routes have been developed to ensure residential solid waste can be collected regularly and consistently in all areas, while increasing efficiency for the contracted waste collection companies.

    Title:  The Tampa Bay Storm Surge Impact Forecasting Tool (SSIFT)

    Description:  The Tampa Bay Storm Surge Impact Forecasting Tool (SSIFT) is an advanced geoprocessing application designed specifically for the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay regions. This tool harnesses real-time data to predict storm surge impacts and inland inundation depths during coastal flooding events. By integrating the STOFS-3D-Atlantic model for water levels with the National Water Model outputs, it forecasts up to 48 hours ahead, considering both coastal and inland hydrology as well as extreme precipitation effects. High-resolution Digital Elevation Models, along with regional infrastructure data, enable detailed spatial analysis of potential impacts. The tool also employs Hazus flood damage libraries to estimate regional economic impacts, such as building and content losses, debris generation, and recovery times.

    Title:  Cloud Hosting your Enterprise GIS Environment

    Description:  In the ever-changing world of technology, the trend for cloud-hosting your Enterprise GIS environment is increasing rapidly. As new or enhanced business systems come online, GIS has become a core component of all government agencies. The high demand for spatially integrated systems has made GIS a pillar in daily business needs, including asset management, permitting, code cases, and business tax. In doing so, the need for uninterrupted and secure GIS access has become a must.  Join us to review the process and benefits of migrating to a cloud hosted Enterprise GIS.

    Title:  Provide Value, Time and Money to Your Organization with Survey123 

    Description:  Palm Beach County, Florida completed the annual Homeless Point-In-Time Count in 2022, 2023 and 2024 using Esri’s Survey123. This annual initiative had over 50 County Staff and over 350 Volunteers coordinating county-wide. Previously, the Count was done partially with paper interview forms and two different software applications. The Homeless Point-In-Time Count Solution delivered a set of capabilities that enable us to capture surveys during the count, visualize the extent of homelessness, filter key metrics captured in the survey and export the information in a report that was delivered to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Palm Beach County was awarded a 2023 NACo Achievement Award in Information Technology for this initiative.

    Title: UF GeoPlan Center, Florida Geographic Data Library Updates

    Description: The Florida Geographic Data Library (FGDL) is a collection of Geospatial Data, and serves as a mechanism for distributing spatial (GIS) data throughout the state of Florida. The FGDL is warehoused and maintained at the University of Florida’s GeoPlan Center, a GIS Research and Teaching Facility, with support from the Florida Department of Transportation. The GIS data available in FGDL is collected from various state, federal, and other agencies (“data sources”) who are data stewards, originators, producers, or publishers.

    FGDL data categories are very diverse, and include land cover, hydrography, soils, environmental quality, conservation, transportation, and boundaries. In 1998, when the project was launched, the website consisted of 80 layers. The site currently contains over 600 layers and continues to expand into new disciplines and practices. FGDL has grown into an integral academic library for the College of Design, Construction, and Planning in the University of Florida and is a valuable resource for a variety of professions in the state of Florida.
