What Can Data Sensors Do For Your Community?


As we prepare for GovLoop’s Second Annual State and Local Innovators Virtual Summit, we are posting blogs about many of the sessions and some of the tips and best practices are experts will share. The summit is September 16th from 10AM-5PM ET and free for everyone — make sure to register here!

Sensors are everywhere, in personnel vehicles, equipment, buildings and computers, tracking metrics and collecting. And now, with ArcGIS services, you can track your sensors in any location. But how can you utilize these sensors to get the most out of your data?

ArcGIS gives you the ability to connect these data streams from a wide variety of sensors, perform processing and analysis of that data, and then send relevant information to users, your community, or other systems.

By using ArcGIS data sensors, you can track real-time in a variety of areas for your everyday decision making process. Want some examples? You have the power to monitor vehicles to make sure personnel are working in their designated project areas. Track a shipment for a customer by giving them updates on how far away their delivery truck is. Get notifications if employees are working in a dangerous location or if equipment starts functioning abnormally, and then send alerts to the nearest responders if an incident occurs.

You can track all of these alerts on maps from the smartphone of a person on site, a computer at company headquarters, or tablet of another employee. Alerts can be configured to automatically send a message or e-mail to the appropriate personnel that can solve the problem.

Don’t you want to equip your organization with technology that can help you make decisions in real time? Join our Virtual Summit to hear Esri’s Director of Government Markets, Christopher Thomas, discuss his experiences with ArcGIS and data sensors.

You will learn how to use sensor data and solutions that your organization probably already has that will help make your community more productive, efficient, transparent, and collaborative.

“How to Build a Smarter, More Responsive Community” is part of GovLoop’s State and Local Innovators Virtual Summit, an all-day, virtual event with 6 different online trainings, networking opportunities and resources to help you do your job better. It takes place on September 16th. You can see the schedule and register here for free. You can earn up to 6 CPEs by attending, so be sure to register and share with your colleagues!
