To involve the public in land use decision-making, the University of Delaware built a community-level land use model with growth visualization. The UD-SCC Land Use Model readily accomplished both capacity build-out and time scope analysis at different scales for regional planning purposes.
ArcGIS, CommunityViz®, and Google Earth Pro provided a customizable set of GIS analytical, mapping, and visualization tools for “painting” a picture of a community’s character in terms of what it is today, what it might be, and what it could be in the future. Twelve custom land use designations with both color symbology and 3D density representations were developed defining form-based growth features for “what-if” public scenario development. These designations were assigned to 100-acre square features. A video of the exported 3D LU Images provided a visualization of regionally planned residential and retail density. The regulators could also visualize a new medical center that would stimulate economic growth.

GIS plays a critical role in regional town planning issues, especially when it comes to historic districts. While traditional GIS mapping of these areas have been vital to new development in these areas, the rise of 3D provides even greater visual awareness for decision-making. Washington College has been comprehensively mapping two towns in Maryland (Chestertown and Easton) using traditional GIS methods, as well as using extensive 3D modeling techniques. The processes, techniques, organization, and software needed to complete a project of this type will be explored, as well as additional information on project ideas to utilize 3D analysis and animation.

This presentation will cover Sussex County, NJ use of ArcGIS Online for Organizations. ArcGIS Online is a cloud-based geospatial platform that extends the use of your ArcGIS System by allowing you to quickly and easily share maps, develop web applications and support workflows. At the premium level, ArcGIS Online for Organizations, users have the added ability to ‘brand’ their own community site, define organization base maps, access administrative controls, define groups and host services in the cloud.
Sussex County utilized ArcGIS Online for Organizations to develop a community GIS site that includes; county departments, NGOS and municipal partners. The County effectively utilized ArcGIS Online for Organizations to enable self-service mapping, web app development and to support workflows. The County employed a hybrid approach with ArcGIS Online, using their existing ArcGIS Server and the ArcGIS for Local Government Information Model to support their workflows and deploy local government web templates.
We’ll review the use cases and hit the County’s ArcGIS Online Organization site to highlight several examples.
