1:45-2:45PM - Streamline Workflow by Web-Enabling Spatial and Non-Spatial Data

Have you been thinking about ways to streamline your workflow and reduce redundancies? Have you been using only paper forms and files for a long time and worry about how those records would be re-created “if” something were to happen? Have you had your Excel spreadsheet go haywire one too many times? This presentation will cover ways to convert both non-spatial and spatial data into a hosted web-based platform, and will cover a variety of platform options both proprietary and non-proprietary. Municipalities of all sizes in the Bangor area are making the switch to hosted solutions – be it VoIP phones, web GIS maps, archiving paper documents or using an app on a smart phone to gather data or report issues. Is it time for you to consider this for your municipality? Presenters: Gretchen Heldmann, GISP, LF, and Ray Corson. 1 CMA/ CAT re-certification credit through Maine Revenue Service
