The Esri Transportation Team is excited and pleased for you to join us at the 2020 Esri User Conference virtually.  This year we have some great demos and resources for those of you working on and interested in solving transportation-related problems associated with the Roads and Highways industry segment. Our team has been hard at work creating content, demos, resources, applications you can try out below.  As always, if you have any questions or would like to learn more, please visit us at our virtual kiosk or subtopic area Roads & Highways.  We are excited to meet with you, listen, and help solve your business problems.

Try it live applications:

  • CDOT Asset Condition Dashboard - Example of the Colorado DOT Asset Condition Dashboard.
  • INDOT Culvert and Storm Drain Inventory Dashboard - This dashboard reports on Culverts and storm and storm drains collected using LRS in Survey123. Please request a demo to see the full workflow.
  • Stormwater Inspection Dashboard - This demo dashboard tracks MS4 inspection and maintenance work along the roadway. Please request a demo to see the full workflow.
  • Historic Project Repository - This project viewer provides of view of all past projects and gives the user the ability to selected shelved projects and visualize the value of those projects. 
  • Nevada Vehicle Crash Data Viewer - This viewer supports search of statewide crash data between 2014 and 2018.  The user can filter by crash type, and as you zoom in on the dynamic hex bins, you get to the original crash point.
  • VDOT Adopt A Highway Portal - This is an Esri demo site that demonstrates how Hub Premium can manage 2-way collaboration between the public and the DOT.  Please request a demo to see the full workflow.
  • Freistadt Bypass Project - This scene shows the power of the ArcGIS Platform, featuring data collected with Drone to Map, lidar collection, integrated mesh network generation. It features the Wayback Imagery Service to show the before and after imagery at the site of the construction project.
  • CAD to GIS Conversion - This scene was created from a CAD file imported into GIS and converted to a 3D Scene.  Please request a demo to see the full workflow.

Coastal communities flood!!  And driving around them during flooding can be difficult and dangerous.

We’re a non-profit organization that accelerates innovation around coastal resilience solutions and we're offering up to $500,000 to create a next generation traffic app that offers drivers real-time flooding and re-routing information.  Think real-time flood info for Waze - including road closures.

We want teams who can develop and demonstrate a real-time version of this system.


Visit riseresilience.org for more details, or email me at paulrobinson@riseresilience.org .

Attribute Rules were introduced to the GIS community in January 2019 with the release of ArcGIS Pro 2.3 and ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7.  The focus was and still is improving data quality and reducing erroneous data entry.  While Geodatabase Domains do this through pick lists and validation through range domains, there is nothing stopping an editor from picking the wrong value.  Also, many DOT's attach information onto their asset inventory such as the county, District, Maintenance Region, and other administrative boundaries.  Many DOT's even do this through post-processing.  

What if there was a way to do this in real-time while an Editor is creating a new feature or even moving an existing feature or updating its attributes.  I present to you Attribute Rules.  The Attribute rules are designed to support 3 types of workflows.  

  1. Automatic population of attributes.
  2. Perform QA checks on existing features.
  3. Constrain Invalid Edits.

They are applied to your data residing in an Enterprise Geodatabase and are just another complex behavior like domains and subtypes.  They support two workflows which include evaluation at edit operations using immediate calculations to populate an attribute dynamically or they can be used as a constraint to specify permissible values. The second workflow they support is evaluation of data by a validation service allowing the user to apply them to a batch calculation to populate attributes and validation to validate existing data.

Attribute Rules allow you to make the data smart, so the editor doesn't have to necessarily know where they are when they are editing a bridge.  As long as they create the bridge point, Attribute Rules can, for example, intersect the bridge point with a county and pull out the county name and insert it into the county name field on the bridge layer.  So as long as you know what the authoritative data sources using arcade expressions you can make your data smart.

The best part in all of this is that wherever you make edits, in Pro, Web App Builder, Event Editor, Survey123, Collector or any other app that supports editing, the database will always honor your attribute rules and apply them no matter the client making the edit.

Here is a video I put together to illustrate how it works.  Over the next few months, I'll update this blog with videos on Constraints and Validation Rules. To sweeten the pot I've also attached all of the arcade expressions I used in the video to give you a head start on your own efforts to implement Attribute Rules. Also here is a nice article in the help and a deeper dive video than mine on Attribute Rules from the 2019 Developer Summit.

Hi Everyone,

The Roads and Highways team is holding a holistic testing session for Roads and Highways in ArcGIS Pro.  The details for the session are below:

Roads and Highways in ArcGIS Pro Holistic Testing
Esri Campus, Redlands, CA
November 5-6, 2019

All current Roads and Highways users are invited to attend.  There are space limitations, so we ask that each organization attending plan to send a maximum of 2 individuals.  We ask that those individuals attending the session have familiarity using Roads and Highways.  The session is not designed to be a training or introduction to Roads and Highways, but instead will involve a series of hands on exercises focused on the new and expanded capabilities of Roads and Highways in ArcGIS Pro to gather feedback from users to help improve future development on the product in ArcGIS Pro.

We'll follow up with formal invitation in August with additional logistics but wanted to give those interested in attending time to begin any approval process they might need to attend.  Any additional questions can be directed to Nathan Easley (neasley@esri.com).

We look forward to seeing you in November.

Capitalizing upon the success of Spike’s integration with Esri’s Survey123 for ArcGIS mobile app, ikeGPS is pleased to announce that we will begin working on an integration between Spike and Esri’s premier field data collection app, Collector for ArcGIS. Integration development between the two apps is planned for late 2019 and is forecasted to be ready in time for the 2020 field season.

Learn more about how you can participate in beta testing in the Spike-Collector working group here.
