Regional Firing Range Location Analysis
Police departments in Western Connecticut struggle to meet training requirements for firearms due to an inadequate availability of firing ranges. A regional firing range option was proposed however siting the location proved to be a complicated discussion. This is WestCOG's GIS journey using Network Analyst to select a location. Struggles and breakthroughs.

It All Goes to the Connecticut: Developing a Comprehensive Municipal Stormwater Network
The Town of West Springfield has a unique and diverse array of both natural and man-made features that are impacted by stormwater runoff. From reservoirs to streams, and levees to pumping stations, it is the town's responsibility to convey these waters as cleanly and efficiently as possible to their ultimate destination. Understanding where the water comes from and where it goes is essential in capital planning as well as state and federal compliance. Historically, our GIS data have been limited to just stormwater utility infrastructure. Recently however, our team has been working on manually digitizing water bodies that interconnect with our existing stormwater system. This has given us the ability to trace upstream and downstream through the entire water network--giving our engineers and planning staff the ability to see where the water ultimately came from, and where it ultimately goes. These tracing analyses are available to our team both in the office and in the field--made possible by custom recursive SQL queries.

Utilizing ArcGIS Pro & Network Analyst for Municipal Snowplow/Sanding Route Optimization
Each fiscal year, municipalities throughout the country allocate a significant amount of time and money on snow clearing operations. This presentation takes a deep dive into utilizing ArcGIS Pro and ESRI’s Network Analyst to help optimize municipal snow clearing operations. By implementing “smart routes”, municipalities can reduce the number of vehicles/equipment and the amount of time it takes to complete runs during a snow event.
