GIS-Pro 2016: URISA’s 54th Annual Conference
October 31-November 3, 2016
Westin Harbour Castle - Toronto, Ontario

Geospatial information is everywhere, at everyone’s fingertips and URISA as an organization has been at the forefront for the past  50 years, through global technology and social shifts.  In the time it took you to pull up the description of this conference, perhaps on your phone, tablet or laptop, you have already considered the conference location, investigated the good eats and conference events, and mapped all of your indoor and outside activities.  URISA connects members and partners with the educational, networking and collaboration resources that professionals need to evolve geospatial tools and solutions that respond to real places in real time.

Join the GIS Community in Toronto, Ontario for a powerful, collective exchange of GIS knowledge!

Professional Planners: Be sure to note the workshops and sessions that have been approved for AICP-CM credits. Nearly 50 AICP-CM credits were approved for this year’s program!

Creating an attendee profile within Sched DOES NOT REGISTER you for the conference or specific workshops. You must register for the conference here.

Note: If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the Westin Harbour Castle saying that there is now a cheaper rate... just hang up. It is a scam.

GIS Capability Maturity Model (1/2 day morning workshop)  
Monday, October 31, 2016, 8:30 AM-12:00 Noon
Instructors: Dianne Haley, GISP & Jochen Albrecht

This workshop introduces the URISA GIS Capability Maturity Model (GISCMM). Through a hands-on exercise, workshop attendees will complete an initial assessment of their own GIS operation.

Enterprise GIS is expensive to develop, maintain, and operate. Even small-to-medium-sized cities, counties, and regional agencies have invested millions of dollars to develop their GIS capabilities, and they can have large annual operating budgets. Many recent third-party studies have proven that GIS delivers significant financial return on investment (ROI) to organizations that deploy it as an enterprise business-support tool. However, almost no GIS operation would be considered to be 100% implemented. In fact, most enterprise GIS operations lack important resources to meet all of their potential business needs, their sustainability is uncertain, and ROI varies depending on the maturity of their GIS management practices.

The URISA GIS Capability Maturity Model will be described, along with its relationship to the GIS Management Institute®, including development of the GIS Management Body of Knowledge. The current development status of the GISCMM will be discussed and future uses and activities outlined. These will include development of new GIS management best practices and the offering of an enterprise GIS accreditation service.

Workshop attendees will receive copies of the GISCMM. An exercise will be conducted during the workshop, where attendees will be asked to perform an initial assessment of their agency by applying the GISCMM. This workshop will be of value to those interested in the development, implementation, and use of GIS management professional standards and best practices.

Specific Topics include:

  • What is a capability maturity model? Origins of the GIS Capability Maturity Model
  • The URISA Geospatial Management Competency Model
  • Theory of GIS Management
  • Development of the revised, peer-reviewed URISA GIS Capability Maturity Model
  • Exercise: The URISA GIS Capability Maturity Model—Step by Step
  • Exercise: Attendee discussion and feedback

Intended Audience: IT directors/managers, GIS managers, decision makers, and operational personnel interested in understanding the overall state of their GIS operations.
