Topic:   Best Practices for Publishing Geoprocessing Tools: Tips and Tricks


             Eric Sack, GISP   Technology Associates

Technology Associates developed a sophisticated geoprocessing application using Python and ModelBuilder that is published to ArcGIS Server, to perform geospatial analysis on over 100 data layers that ask questions such as:

  • What environmental layers intersects the project area within specified buffer distances?
  • How far features are from work sites?
  • What are the temporary or permanent impacts in acres for each site?
  • What is the elevation and centroid coordinates (in 8 different systems) for each worksite?
  • Reports on frequency of occurrence for RT&E species and closest occurrence.

An Environmental Screening Report is generated from geoprocessing results using an XML Reader to render results.  As part of the geoprocessing task, Technology Associates developed a separate model used for refreshing the FGDB schema.  This minimizes application down-time during data refreshes, cuts hand-on pre-processing time and primes the GIS data for optimized geoprocessing speed.
