Hello, my name is Anna from Boone County, Missouri, USA. Where do you work and what is your role? I provide GIS support for Boone County Joint Communications (our county's 911 center) and the county Office of Emergency Management. This includes maintaining the data for the computer-aided dispatch system and reference mapping systems, as well as producing various site maps, planning maps, exercise maps, and wall maps for the public safety community here. What GIS success have you had this year and what product did you use? (big or small - no win is out of bounds) There hasn't been a lot of this year so far, so I'll use 2018 instead. I built the GIS components of a new dispatching system and facilitated the transition between a non-mapping dispatch system and a system that uses mapping data for dispatch. ArcGIS 10.3, 10.4, and Python 2.7 were used in this endeavor. What is your expertise (GIS related or not), and how can that help the community? I have an MA in Geography with a GIS emphasis. I've been able to automate all of my data update processes, along with multiple analysis processes and geocoding projects, via my expertise in Python.
