    the SA River Authority 4 § Very-Wide Breadth of GIS Disciplines o Parks Maintenance & Operation Mapping § San Antonio Missions – Connected with the Mission Reach - Only World Heritage Site in Texas o Watershed Engineering GIS and Web Mapping § Predictive Flood Modeling and watershed master plans § FEMA Delegate for Letter of Map Revisions (LOMR) Updates § Utilities Waste Water Treatment Mapping: 40k points, lines, and polygons § Surveyor Team – AutoCAD to ArcGIS o Environmental Science Monitoring GIS and Web Mapping § Conduct water quality monitoring and assessment for State of Texas’ Clean Rivers Program (CRP) § Advance Low Impact Development (LID) and green stormwater infrastructure development practices o Real Estate

  6. Committed to Safe, Clean, Enjoyable Creeks and Rivers. Inherited Real

    Estate GIS System oInitially created approximately 12 years ago by an non-GIS firm with no documentation oThis system failed approximately 6 years ago oRE Transaction based and not actual current ownership oManual workflows implemented and the RE & GIS staff struggled oRE began corrections to attribute database; GIS paused new shapes or correcting existing shape oNew RE Manager and GIS team revived effort 6

    Real Estate Web Application o Internal Viewer ONLY o Real Estate (RE) land assets § Color coded by type of land rights § 56 attributes o River Authority utility services o Major creeks/rivers o Appraiser districts o Floodplain o PaperVision link § Document management system What Can You view?

    Database Access Excel GIS Land Assets Dataset
  9. Committed to Safe, Clean, Enjoyable Creeks and Rivers. 9 Tackle

    the Build-Up o Plenty of wrong and/or missing data § Incorrect boundaries/wrong location/incorrect attribute data o Error Flag Collection Layer in existing web map § Provides description of problem § Provides details of correction o GIS reviews & fixes reported problem § QA/QC through GIS & RE o Too many flags-200+ and growing
  10. Committed to Safe, Clean, Enjoyable Creeks and Rivers. Creating &

    Correcting Parcels Shapes § Metes & Bounds § Transverse tools § P.O.B. Location ?? § Carson & Ferguson Block Maps § Paper from the 1960’s § Geo-Referenced to BCAD § Appraisal District Parcels § Survey AutoCAD .dwg files § Aerial Imagery – NearMap § Thanks to Our Surveyors
  11. Committed to Safe, Clean, Enjoyable Creeks and Rivers. 11 Teams

    Working Environment o Microsoft Teams for GIS and RE § Improve communication § Track working/completed parcels § Workflow documents o QA/QC process between departments 1. RE provide parcel descriptions (esmts, deeds, etc. ) 2. GIS produces spatial data 3. RE & survey team QC 4. GIS pushes new/improved data to cloud
  12. Committed to Safe, Clean, Enjoyable Creeks and Rivers. Why App

    Geo ? o A Fresh Review was Needed – Can’t See the Forest for the Trees o App Geo has Experience with Colorado DOT Real Estate o App Geo is an Existing Vendor of the SA River Good Existing Working Relationship 12
  13. Committed to Safe, Clean, Enjoyable Creeks and Rivers. 13 Recommendations

    - Approach o Overall goal to help answer the question: What real estate does San Antonio River Authority own? o Assessed workflows, processes, and technology to determine what improvements could be made o Core Goals: § Reduce duplicative workflows and data entry § Promote interoperability between critical business systems § Increase efficiency in processing workflows § Allow subject matter experts to manage authoritative data
  14. Committed to Safe, Clean, Enjoyable Creeks and Rivers. 14

  15. Committed to Safe, Clean, Enjoyable Creeks and Rivers. 15 Other

    Mid and Long-Term Goals o Technology and Infrastructure: § Equip the system with interoperability tools o Data Management: § Establish a priority of property types to facilitate processing and data creation o Workflow: § Establish a quality review process and checklist o Personnel: § Prioritize staff training for new and existing workflows
  16. Committed to Safe, Clean, Enjoyable Creeks and Rivers. 16 Proposed

    Implementation Plan Recommendation Type Q3 -Q4 (Near Term Q4 2019 - 2020 (Midterm) 2021 - ongoing (Long Term) Technology and Infrastructure ü Implement a system that reduces redundancy and streamlines data migration ü Review and modify existing GIS property and Real Estate SQL database schema ü Equip the system with interoperability tools Data Management ü Replace the Real Estate SQL database and data management Access forms with Lucity ü Establish priority of property types to facilitate processing and data creation ü Confirm that the transactional component of the GIS system provides the River Authority the ability to track historical ownership ü Create a new working version of the GIS property dataset Workflow ü Establish Lucity as the single methodology and resource for assigning work order tickets ü Spatial and real estate data is managed and maintained by the appropriate business units ü Develop and document data processing and data management workflows ü Establish a quality review process and checklist that is performed on all properties prior to their inclusion in the real estate database ü Data is shared and accessible by all stakeholders Personnel ü Prioritize staff training for new and existing workflows ü Identify the personnel resources required to meet The River Authority's property mapping goals ü Advocate for additional staffing after evaluating how new processes impact workload
  17. Committed to Safe, Clean, Enjoyable Creeks and Rivers. Implementation has

    Begun o Lucity is an existing web based asset system § Business Analyst is currently working to move data entry from Access § Lucity will combine tracking for the Real Estate workflow o FME is in extended trial and Negotiating purchase o Auditing Workflow and Web Map changes have begun New Map o Web mapping will probably move to ArcGIS Portal 17
