       End Users
Simple access to their data
            Simple for Users
• Layers come into
  ArcMap pre-
  symbolized



• Load multiple layers
  at once
           Simple for Users

• Easily joined to attribute tables

• Easy forms to narrow down
  the data
Simple for Users
       • One click for simple spatial overlays

       • One click for complex analysis
            Simple for Users
• Tabular results

• One click for
  formatted reports
        All in One Place

Combined what would have required layer
files, VBA menus, model builder, python,
AML, saved mxds and Ms Access reports
into ONE tool.

          Forest Preparation
1. Data matches national standards

2. Ottawa chose to put all GIS library data in SDE
   (speed)

3. Basic set up in GI Registration Tool

4. Hook up national products already available

5. Made Forest and Regional specific maps /
   analysis

6. Users load ArcMap and GI Client
        GI Rollout Sessions
February 2008

• One day session at each office

• Trained all GIS users (about 60)
           GI Maintenance
1. Done nationally for national products.
  •   Facts, NHD Water, ALP

2. Done regionally for regional products.
  •   Protected Area Database

3. Done on forest for local products.
  •   Ottawa eltp habitat types

   - New layers, changing data standards
   - Easy updates for location changes
                Cost?

• Learning curve for GI users

• Steeper Learning curve for RegTool

• Update to GI software twice a year
                     Results
• Current products always available

• Less frustration for users now

• Users are more independent

• We are positioned for a smoother data center
  migration
         What’s Next?


• Continuing development of new
  products by national teams
