Hands One

Acquire the skills and knowledge to streamline and digitize Section 106 compliance using geographic information system (GIS), including:
  • Reviewing permit data for proposed undertakings.
  • Coordinating communications with permit applicants, federal agencies, consulting parties, and the public.
  • Collecting new cultural resource information through digital survey and updating existing survey data.
  • Generating automated reports and correspondence.
Using the Washington Information System for Architectural and Archaeological Records Data platform as an example, the workshop will demonstrate how an enterprise GIS platform can be used to satisfy federal permitting requirements, while also serving as a comprehensive cultural resource database. This is also an opportunity to not only learn how GIS can be used to improve existing workflows, but also to provide feedback to Esri, the company working to develop this off-the-shelf platform solution specifically designed for YOU!
