ABSTRACT: Have you ever tried to get a Public Works Director or Utility Superintendent to discuss your geodatabase utility template? First of all, you would be lucky if that request did not scare them off completely. Secondly, they are hoping GIS is going to streamline their operations and not require additional meeting time. Sitting in a meeting filled with technology jargon involving field names, relationships and whether a value needs to be an integer, text or blob value is far from anything they would agree to. So, how do you get your utilities into the Esri utility templates? Please join us, in an open presentation format, as we discuss our experiences with and share our tips on making these templates work for DPW and Utilities alike. We hope this forum will foster questions, create dialog and initiate ways to raise local adoption of these valuable utility templates.
