The Traditional Geospatial Enterprise Domain is rapidly changing with the need to include intelligent 3D geospatial Model Data in that domain, and present all the geospatial data in a homogeneous 3D visualization and collaboration environment. While traditional GIS has provided sophisticated tools for creating and managing 2D geospatial map information, and more recently developed 3D visualization within some GIS applications, GIS still works primarily with 2D spatial data types and hasn’t evolved into creating and managing complex 3D geospatial (Parametric Design) data effectively or efficiently.
The presentation will detail why ‘Intelligent Infrastructure Models’ are rapidly becoming a force to be reckoned with, and why the introduction of 3D Models into the traditional geospatial enterprise are creating a Big Geospatial / Little Geospatial division in that enterprise.
Gordon McElravy, National Infrastructure Manager, Autodesk Canada
Previously National GIS Manager for Autodesk Canada for ten years, he returns to Autodesk as National Infrastructure Manager for Autodesk Canada after a seven year hiatus to learn and work with mobile wireless networks, mobile workforce computing and GPS enterprise services. Mr. McElravy has worked in government, taught at college and held senior positions in private industry during his 40 years of working experience in the geospatial industry.
One of the challenges many Municipalities and Utilities face is identifying the existing easements they hold. An easement can be described as an interest in land owned by another that entitles its holder to a specific limited use. For these organizations, the easements they hold provide access to critical infrastructure for inspection, maintenance and other related activities such asset management and planning.
To assist Municipalities and Utilities, Teranet has developed processes to extract easement details from Land Registry Office records and identify easements registered in favour of these organizations. During this presentation you will learn:
Teranet, is a world leader in mapping and information systems, and is responsible for the on-going maintenance and management of POLARIS, the Province of Ontario Land Registration Information System. POLARIS is a comprehensive database containing all electronic land registration data relating to property interests in Ontario.
Richard Norris, Account Executive for the Government and Utility sectors at Teranet Inc., will lead a presentation on identifying registered easements.
This presentation will examine how GIS and Microsoft Access can be used to collect, manage and store data relating to Ecological Land Classification (ELC). Traditionally, a biologist collects information about a vegetation community in paper form on field data sheets and these become the only lasting records of those observations. A variety of tables and lists are typically derived from these field data sheets, but if one were ever interested in going back to check certain attributes of the vegetation community, then one would certainly need to refer back to the hard copies. This issue becomes an even larger problem when many different parties or players want to utilize the data. To solve this problem, the use of a custom database has been developed to enter field data into forms which mimic the field data sheets using Microsoft Access. This method not only allows the wider distribution of the data, but it also preserves the records digitally.
The incorporation of field data into an Access database also facilitates many more future options for analysis. Certain database tables can be joined to the ELC shape file to allow for numerous polygon-based queries. Additionally, queries can be run from within Access to create derivative tables and report significant observations, such as the most common vegetation types, all polygons which contain rare species, or even which polygons contain a particular species of plant or animal.
Main themes of this presentation include Ecological Land Classification (ELC), Natural Areas Inventories, Microsoft Access Custom Databases, Database integration with ArcGIS, Queries and Municipal GIS.
The presentation will be an update on Esri in the Cloud with a quick peak at 10.1 using SharePoint. Also, a review of the recently completed AVL pilot project developed on ArcGIS and Tracking Server.

The format for playing is a scramble format. The best shot for each foursome will be used, and everyone moves their ball to the 'best spot' for the next shot. This is continued throughout the play. Note: at least 3 drives from each player on the team MUST be used.
A putting competition will be held on the practice green between the 18th green and the 1st tee. As you come off the 18th green you will have the opportunity to participate in the putting competition – entry is $2 for one ball and 3 for $5. The proceeds will be split 50/50 between the winner and URISA-OC.
