People who aren’t interested in building apps can still download the data or view it via the map interface. Los Angeles employees can use their Esri ArcGIS accounts to take advan- tage of additional features on GeoHub. Accompanying the launch of Geo- Hub, the city also unveiled Street Wize, a web application that uses GeoHub to show activity taking place on the city’s streets — including roadwork, capital projects and special events — and the expected duration of each activity. In addition, the city announced that it was developing two other apps: Road to 2400, a dashboard that tracks road-surface conditions and the histo- ry of paving projects, and Vision Zero, a story map that tracks efforts to curb fatalities and serious injuries on the city’s streets. GeoHub runs on Esri’s ArcGIS plat- form with data hosted in Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services clouds. As for managing the data, Cross said, “the core of the platform is built on a robust and flexible sharing mod- el, which allows administrators to be as restrictive or open as they choose. Ideally, the maintainer of the data is the one who oversees the changes, but they can enlist other members to assist if needed.” Although the data available on GeoHub is primarily from the city and county of Los Angeles, data from private-sector and nongovernmen- tal organizations will be added soon, Cross said. “The private sector can combine this data with their information to create apps and maps that blend content into new capabilities,” he added. GeoHub is already attracting at- tention from other municipalities in- terested in building similar portals. According to Cross, inquiries have come in from Boston; Austin, Texas; Long Beach, Calif.; Pittsburgh; and Miami.” • OPEN DATA 48 GCN MARCH/APRIL 2016 • GCN.COM REGISTER at gitec.org 2016 SUMMIT Transforming Government through Better IT LORD BALTIMORE HOTEL | APRIL 10 –12 Why attend the 2016 GITEC Summit? • Learn from other agencies on best practices on IT serving federal government, such as: DHS, VA, DOJ, SSA, USDA, NASA, OPM, HHS, State Dept and many more! • Engage with high-level government and industry leaders* *Expect 45–50% government ratio of government to industry • Training credits available for attendees • Recruit new employees and hire on site REGISTER NOW!
