Our next meeting is coming up, in a few weeks on Thursday, June 20, 2019, at the Palm Beach County Vista Center at 10:00 a.m.

Our presentation this month is about Palm Beach County gets ready for 2019 Hurricane Season, presented by Beth Norton and Eric Blazewicz.


Palm Beach County will be partnering with several municipalities in using Esri’s Collector application to assess the damage this hurricane season.  Collector allows for connected or disconnected editing and the GIS Service Bureau has devised a way to allow users to update multiple addresses in an area with the same damage and inspection attributes.  This allows for a quicker windshield assessment of areas.  The inspection crews can also add field notes such as power lines or poles down, tree and road debris, structure information, blue roof candidate information or any other information of importance.


The GIS Service Bureau has also been working closely with the Engineering and Public Works Traffic Division to create a Collector application to collect Traffic Signal Condition and Power Status in the field.  The mobile application will enable field crews to collect traffic signal information after a disaster, improving the accuracy and speed of damage assessment reporting and making real-time, updated Traffic Signal status available at the EOC.


We will also demonstrate the use of Dashboards to make the live data available to decision-makers at the EOC.
