Title: Mobile GIS In Your Pocket

Philip Hanley, GISP, ERGIS

Abstract:Mobile GIS has gone from the professional level and expensive field data collectors to simple easy to use applications that you can place on your Smartphone. Several application developers have now come out with free or very inexpensive applications that allow the user to bring in maps and aerial imagery on your device and they in turn can be used in a verity of ways. You can now not only use maps and imagery as a base map but also collect data in the form of geographical location points, collect information about what is at those points and even take photographs that are geo-tagged so the user can publishing desktop maps and reports. This collected information can also be sent out to social media sites as well as your office or place of work and home.

These Mobile GIS applications have allowed everyone to become a mobile GIS data collector and empowered us to be better informed and help improve our world. There is an endless use for the types of information that all of us can now collect in a format that can help us to describe the who, what, when, where and even how, all in your pocket. This presentation will include a live demonstration and hands on help to allow participants to load a map with data collection tools on to their Smartphone’s, then go out on a geo-scavenger hunter. Each participant that wishes to take part in our geo-scavenger hunt will load their maps onto their Smartphone, then go out of the building and find each item listed in the scavenger hunt. Those who are successful in finding each of these items and collecting the specified data will be eligible for prizes.

Title: US Topo:  The New Generation of Topographic Maps

Darryl S. Williams, USGS Geospatial Liaison for Oklahoma , U.S. Geological Survey, South Central Area

Abstract:The US Topo is the new generation of digital topographic maps from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Arranged in the traditional 7.5-minute quadrangle format, digital US Topo maps look and feel like the traditional paper topographic maps. However, US Topo maps provide modern technical advantages that support wider and faster public distribution and enable basic, on-screen geographic analysis.

US Topo maps are available free on the Web through the USGS Store. Each map quadrangle is constructed in PDF format with geospatial extensions (GeoPDF®) format from key layers of geographic data: orthoimagery, roads, geographic names, contours and hydrographic features, found in The National Map. The National Map is a nationwide collection of integrated geospatial data from local, State, Federal, and other sources.  As the US Topo product evolves, the USGS will incorporate additional data layers from The National Map.
