ArcGIS Online Web App Builder - Fueled with Automatic Updates - Cemetery Mapping Updates get even more Deadly with Hidden Pythons
Presented by Tony Bedogne from the City of Ann Arbor

This presentation will highlight the workflow of an integration solution to bring a fast and current set of Cemetery Features to a public map viewer. The City of Ann Arbor's clerk's office has maintained a local, staff only commercial website "CIMS" for the management and organization of plot records. The integration uses ArcPy (arcgispro) to compile a series of downloaded shapefiles into an Enterprise (SDE) databse, which hosts map layers to a standalone ArcGIS Server. The Ann Arbor Clerks group in partnership with City IT needed a public visualization platform to help staff and citizens alike learn details about the burial plots of their loved ones, and also to fill a growing need for ongoing requests of burial plot availability at Fairview Cemetery.  Web Services are rendered using ArcGIS online and the ESRI web app builder developer edition module 2.15. The presentation will highlight design considerations, business value, and modern use of enterprise resources.

Broadband Mapping Advocacy to Increase Citizen Engagement
Presented by Ashley Hitt of Connected Nation Michigan

Over 200,000 households in Michigan do not have broadband (high-speed internet) access, in what is known as the “Digital Divide.” This lack of broadband access keeps citizens from accessing government services, telehealth, and educational opportunities. This presentation will review how Connected Nation Michigan collects more accurate broadband data, verifies and refines data from field validation and resident feedback, collaborates with local communities, and works with the state on implementing a grant program to expand broadband.
