Alright all you techies, this Thursday’s presentation will focus on “Automating Map Creation using Python”. Come hear Sergio tell you how easy this can be as he uses the FDOT Atlas as an example.
In the business portion of the meeting, you will get an update on the quickly approaching South Florida GIS Expo. The theme this year is Treasure Your Assets, and now is the time for you to submit your abstract if you plan to present.
Forum presentation title: Automating Map Creation Using Python
Presented by: Sergio Requena, Sr. GIS Specialist with Burns and McDonnell
Date and Time: Thursday, August 17 at 10:00 a.m. (Agenda)
Location: Palm Beach County Vista Center – Conference Room 1E-58
Description: We will go over a recently completed effort that automated the creation of the FDOT roadway atlas by using Python scripts. The presentation will outline the process used to create scripts and take a look at the code to help the audience replicate the process elsewhere. The presentation will show that Python scripting for ArcGIS can be used by all users regardless of programming experience level and show how to approach the process of automating your processes.
