Under the theme of resilience, URISA Ontario will be hosting its BeSpatial event virtually on May 4 and 5, 2021. With two half-days of conferences and presentations as well as two other half-days of workshops, the program promises to be most interesting.


In addition to being a Gold partner of the event,
Consortech will present two sessions.


InfoNOW Project at Town of East Gwillimbury

Date: May 4, 2021 from 10:10 AM to 10:45 AM EDT
Speakers: Carolynne Saxton (East Gwillimbury) and Lesley MacKenzie (Consortech)

At the Town of East Gwillimbury, like at many Municipalities, information is spread across multiple IT system platforms and departments, in applications that are curated for specific purposes like issuing permits, or processing taxes, managing public works tickets, and mapping (GIS)….

This means, however, that staff need to login into multiple source data applications and patchwork to get a consolidated operating picture and this is time consuming and prone to error. The InfoNOW project will enable staff to access a single interface to retrieve as much information as possible about a property including an inset map for visual representation. In collaboration with Consortech, the City is working to develop integrations of the spatial, and SQL data, on the backend leveraging their FME technology and a Web front end for searching and reporting.


Workshop - Build your own Esri Operations Dashboard using open data and FME

Date: May 5, 2021 from 1:35 PM to 4:40PM EDT
Speaker: Lesley MacKenzie (Consortech)

ESRI’s Operations Dashboards are a simple, user-friendly way to report and monitor your organizations performance, status, and advancement of activities of all kinds. To provide meaningful insight, however, your data must be reliable and kept up to date, which FME technology can help with in the background!

This workshop will teach you how to leverage FME and the ESRI Operations Dashboard technologies to create an accessible dashboard for your organization. You will look at different ways to update data.

At the end of this workshop, you’ll be able to:

Create a dashboard using the ESRI Operations Dashboard;
Connect FME and ArcGIS Online;
Structure your data to create a Dashboard;
Structuring your data in FME.
