Blog Post created by lrhill on Nov 19, 2015

Planning & Development Services of Kenton County and the Ohio Kentucky Indiana Regional Council of Governments hosted a joint GIS Day session at the PDS Offices (2332 Royal Drive, Fort Mitchell, KY) that was well received.  From 10AM - 3PM attendees networked, and learned about GIS to create Story Maps, evaluate Solar Potential, use Drones and UAVs (from a hobbyist perspective), how to customize Map Viewers through the ESRI Web App Builder, applications of ArcReader, NKYmapLAB (GIS and cartography), ROW/Easement mapping, ESRI's Collector App for crowd-sourced data collection, and GIS Application Development with real-time data streams.  SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR ESRI REP DAVID SMITH FOR ATTENDING!
