AUTHORS: Pamela Locke, GISP, University of Massachusetts, Lowell

ABSTRACT: Commencement at UMass Lowell is a huge event encompassing many different departments. In previous years, it was coordinated on paper with different versions of the same data compiled into one large manual. ArcGIS Online offered solutions regarding data collection, coordination, and sharing. It also was a great conduit for “non GIS” users to access, edit, and share spatial data about the university. While using ArcGIS Online was supposed to be a pilot project for Commencement, we ended up utilizing the Apps we created to efficiently coordinate departments and standardize their data. Public and internal apps were created and used before and during the event. These apps also provided a more portable means of transporting and accessing the data. While there were cases of trial and error, we were able to provide Campus Police, Emergency Services, Parking and Transportation, and the Events Departments with data that was useful and necessary to all involved. The more people see what we can do, collect, and share, the more requests have been coming in for data collection, apps and online maps. It is great to see people get excited about data collection and being able to help a growing number of departments around campus.
