From Text Files to Images: Implementing a GIS Engine within a National Weather Service Operational Environment

The NOAA/NWS Storm Prediction Center (SPC) is tasked with producing forecasts of severe thunderstorms and their associated hazards (tornadoes, large hail, and damaging thunderstorm winds). Historically, this guidance was consumed primarily by local National Weather Service forecast offices. However, with the advent of the Internet, social media, and the always-connected society, SPC forecasts and graphics are being consumed increasingly by the public-at-large. This new audience, with less technical knowledge, resulted in discussions about how to present SPC forecasts in the best graphical format. The result was a transition toward more public friendly, social-media-ready graphics generated in Python. Many challenges were faced in the creation of these numerous, high quality, localized graphics in an operational setting, including conversion of open line segments into closed polygons, rapid transformation of geographic polygons between different geographic projections, and minimizing creation time of similar graphics. This presentation will highlight some these issues as well as discuss SPC’s solutions to these challenges, which include the creation of a custom GIS engine built utilizing the Python language.


10:00 - 10:15 am -  Break 


10:15 – 10:45 am - Peter White, Pictometry

Peter White, GISP, Pictometry, will be presenting on the latest Pictometry advancements and solutions related for oblique imagery web mapping integrations, aerial LiDAR mapping, and 3D GIS.


10:45 – 11:00 am - Break  

 11:00 – 11:45 am
 - Michael Beavers, Esri

Take a Closer Look at Our World: The world we live in is changing quickly and the tools we use to visualize and understand our world are changing too. The web has become the medium to share location-based information. People expect immediate, mobile access to your GIS. Esri understands this demand to make your authoritative, spatial systems of record available anytime, anywhere. In order to meet these expectations, Esri is investing heavily in developing an array of focused, web-based, “off-the-shelf” 2D and 3D Apps that you can quickly configure and share with your Users. During this one hour presentation, you will see how 2D and 3D data can be authored with ArcGIS Pro and City Engine and shared in ArcGIS Online with Web Apps and 3D Web Scenes.
