Presenter: Adrian Sellars - GIS Program Manager, Utah DOT -

Presenting on the Traffic Count group Workforce, Collector, Survey123 workflow.  This project from scratch as per request to help put ATR (automatic traffic recorder) data into one place where it get's updated, location inspections are generated against it, and new sites can be added.  The past workflow used a MS access database, google sheets, paper inspection forms that were then entered by hand, and a separate GIS database showing their locations.  It is now all GIS based and updated/maintained using ESRI mobile applications and ArcGIS Online 

Presenter: Cricket VonJames – IT Manager, Stormwater Program, Nevada DOT, -

The mobile application Collector and GIS maps are used to conduct stormwater inspections, which can be viewed by office staff in real-time. This has given NDOT the capability to more efficiently and effectively to perform inspections of outfalls, industrial facilities, maintenance facilities, and stormwater assets.  It has also assisted in their ability to investigate illicit discharges.

Presenter: Ishmael Chivite – Senior Product Manager, Survey123, ESRI -

Presenting up updates to Survey123.
