I was a featured speaker at the 2016 Esri Public Sector Summit.
While it’s data that drives the government, it’s open data that drives the community.
In my presentation, Redefining Open Data, I argued that open data means so much more than making the data available for the public to use. It’s about helping the public do something with that data.
While data drives the government, it’s open data that drive the community. Citizens, businesses, students, nonprofits, and other governments all rely on open data to make their community a better place to live.
The slides from my presentation are available on SlideShare.
I worked with the great people at the Alberta Geological Survey to put together this blog post about their ArcGIS Open Data implementation.
What’s really cool is how they’re integrating their Open Data site with their web maps. For example, when you click on a feature on their Alberta Interactive Minerals Map (AIMM), which is a joint project with Alberta Energy, a pop up opens up with a link to that feature’s entry in their Open Data site.

My new blog post, Top 10 Reasons to Share Your Data with ArcGIS Open Data, was published this morning. Go read it on the Esri Insider blog.
I’ve had a couple blog posts published on the Esri Insider blog.
I plan to start updating this blog again. Just need to sit down and figure out what to do with it.
Batkid Saves Gotham City! is a story map about Batkid (Miles Scott) that I put together with Jennifer Jacob by using one of Esri’s story map templates. Miles story is amazing and inspiring and we couldn’t help but tell his story. The story map includes a link to The Batkid Fund, which Miles’ parents set up to help the local charities that had done so much to help Miles.
Re-experience Batkid’s journey as he saves Gotham City (San Francisco).
This whitepaper is an update to my How to Set Up an Esri Geoportal Server
