Lunch and Learn Webinars

One of KAM's core missions is to help our members develop their skills through continuing their education. To that end, we've started a new webinar series dubbed "Lunch and Learn" in which we bring in experts on topics of interest who share their knowledge with the group.

Lunch and Learns are always free. Just register to get the webinar link.

Using the ArcGIS JavaScript API for mapping sewer flow monitoring sites


12-1 pm, Wednesday, January 19, 2022

Sewer flow monitoring consists of placing a monitor with sensors in a manhole to monitor multiple conditions and report that data to a server at a regular interval. For example, sensors attached to the monitor will collect Depth and Velocity data and an integrated camera will take an image of the manhole flow and the monitor will send that information to a server every 5 minutes.

This Lunch and Learn will showcase using the ArcGIS JavaScript API for mapping and data display in a sewer flow monitoring application. I will demonstrate using a JSON configuration file to load various map content (GEOJSON files, ArcGIS map services, KML layers, Fulcrum data) for multiple clients, including a visual tool to create and edit this configuration file.

Then, I'll show a custom "dashboard" application, that integrates images, charts and a "play mode". Lastly, I'll highlight a virtual rain gauge application.

The technical side of this Lunch and Learn will show using the esriRequest method to call PHP to query a MySQL database and create GEOJSON layers dynamically and the integration of Chart.js (JavaScript library) for graphing.

This is an encore presentation of our conference panel discussion focusing on the ways that KAM members can become more active in the organization. Each member of the panel is a current or previous committee chair who will share their experiences and answer attendee questions. We'll include an overview of all eight standing committees and, time permitting, the Executive Board's roles and duties. Our goal with this conversation is to encourage greater participating so that we have representation from as many different industries and experience levels as possible.

ArcGIS Field Maps

This webinar will provide an introduction to ArcGIS Field Maps, an all-in-one app that combines the capabilities of Explorer, Collector, and Tracker. This app helps organizations use data-driven maps to help fieldworkers perform mobile data collection and editing, find assets and information, and report their real-time locations.
