GIS: Creating a Map to Your Connected Community
June 26th – 1:30 pm to 2:15 pm
Grays Peak 1
Need directions on the path to becoming a connected community? Use your map! Your GIS map!
Before the business plan, before fiber is placed, before antennae and sensors are set up – EVERY community needs to create and develop a GIS-based map of their area! Foresite Group will demonstrate a variety of practical ways to leverage the power of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) today to prepare your community for tomorrow’s connected environment. In this demonstration, our panel of experts will:
- Explain different methods for capturing information about the existing infrastructure in your community: streets and sidewalks, power-gas-water utilities, poles and streetlamps, traffic lights and parking areas, commercial/residential/civic addresses, etc.;
- Describe how this geospatially accurate database is used in the design, deployment, and operation of a broadband connectivity network;
- Present processes and tools that planners, architects, and engineers can use to intelligently grow and manage your evolving community.
