2021 Conference Abstracts

Keynote Census Data – David J. Kraiker, U.S. Census Bureau


Will This Fit In ThatDaniel Shinnick, GISP, Weston & Sampson

This presentation is an exploration of some of the concepts in computational geometry and the development of a tool to help solve a nagging gap in the tool suite of ArcGIS. Born out of a real world task to help a community develop its residential zoning bylaws, we walk through the analysis and comparison of geometries and answer this presentation’s title question. Script tool development in Python is documented.


Migrating the Erie County DPW Public Complaints Process into a GIS-Centric WorkflowMaria Dolce, Bergmann and Kaitlin Costello, Erie County DPW

Erie County DPW, with Bergmann, has been incorporating GIS into their emergency operations and daily work activities for several years now. This session will take you through the technical process and coordination for moving the public complaints from a web form/email tracking system to a GIS based tracking system, utilizing Esri’s Survey123, AGOL web maps and apps, along with custom scripts to make it all come together into a cohesive workflow for better tracking and a more efficient process.


Exposure to pesticides and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) risk in and around Monroe County, NYTheodros Woldeyohannes, University of New Mexico

Associations have been observed between exposure to pesticide application and HCC. Pesticide-cancer associations are complex given external environmental and biological factors. Spatial analysis can help in understanding this complexity. Using NYS cancer and pesticide data, this study developed a GIS model to investigate the possibility of spatial correlation between pesticide application and HCC sites and other associated cancers in NYS, with a focus on the region around Monroe county.


Use of i-Tree Canopy for Estimating Carbon Sequestration in Cortland County, NY – Christopher A. Badurek, SUNY Courtland

Carbon sequestration tools are an important component of greenhouse gas inventories used in reports on college campus, city, and state level reports on sustainability. GIS-based carbon sequestration estimation tools are relatively new and the reliability of the latest iteration of the most widely available tool (i-Tree Canopy v. 7.0) has not yet been studied. This study examines the utility of the i-Tree carbon sequestration methodology at varying spatial scales.
