Enterprise GIS Data Updates for Capital and Annual Operating Projects
Milwaukee County has developed an enterprise GIS along with an asset management program. The initial build out has been completed and now we are left with maintaining what has been built. A key to keeping the 1,000+ buildings, 16,000+ rooms, 310 miles of trails and roadways, and 100,000+ assets up to date is to put in a process to capture what is being changed in the field through the annual capital projects, and yearly operations and maintenance programs. The GIS and Engineering sections have developed a management workflow as well as a GIS interface for designers and project managers to download the specific data that pertains to their project area and deliver that updated information back to the GIS and Engineering staff to validate and update the enterprise core GIS datasets. This is now one part of the overall project closeout process. We will also demonstrate an interface for distributing GIS asset data for designers and contractors. The interface is based on a geoprocessing service that bundles features from a specific list of layers that intersect a user-specified area of interest. The tool is flexible enough for users to download features from desktop GIS software or via a web browser, and County GIS staff can also use the tool for check-in\checkout project validation.

Identifying Immigration Settlement Trends in Stevens Point Using Historical Census Data
Historical U.S. Census data are a treasure trove for understanding immigration patterns of settlement. The 1900 – 1930 censuses identify the place of birth for each recorded person, including the place of birth of the person’s mother and father. Learn how the team at UW-Stevens Point has managed the original census data to overlay the modern cache of street addresses using geocoding procedures. Learn more about their intentions to make the data and Wisconsin’s immigration narrative available via modern and interactive story maps.
