  • Why my course is useful

    Local governments, big or small, rely on field data collection for monitoring progress, tracking and managing assets, responding to emergencies, managing workforce and supporting real time decision making. I share with students a data collection workflow that has these modern tech characteristics: low friction, mobile, crowdsourced, and real-time. Although this course is organized around data normally collected by municipalities, anyone working in State agencies, utilities, and academic institutions will benefit.

  • Why I built it

    Personally I find myself spending a lot of time keeping up with changes in technology that impact workflows. The Bootcamp GIS paradigm has given me an outlet to share my knowledge for many other analysts and managers in local government that are seeking a timesaving and proven workflow in asset data collection. If I had a class like this when I started, it would have saved me a few months of tinkering.

  • What I hope for you

    I hope you take the class and then two weeks later you have setup a robust field to server workflow for any city in the world. Seriously, you can do it!
