In an effort to retell the stories of old by way of new technology, Marietta’s GIS group recently embarked on a journey to enhance its citizens’ cemetery viewing experience using ArcGIS Online, Collector for ArcGIS, Geocortex Essentials, and Esri Story Maps. This undertaking was Marietta’s introduction to mobile editing, and they’d like to share their experience with those interested.
Presenter: Ross Brewer – City of Marietta
As a KSU graduate, Ross began his career working within the GIS Core Group of Cobb County Government. He later followed an opportunity to remain in local-government GIS by joining the city of Marietta’s GIS group in 2009.

Johns Creek, GA 30097JC Now – A Case Study on Building an App on the Cheap
Smartphone apps have been around for a while now, but are out of reach to most GIS professionals due to the learning curve involved in programming them. This presentation will explain how to develop a smartphone app that incorporates open source technologies and free mapping APIs by using Johns Creek’s “JC Now” smartphone app as an example. Attendees will learn how Johns Creek’s GIS and Communications teams designed, built and deployed a multi-award winning app in less than 3 months and with a very small budget.
JC Now is a smartphone app which delivers emergency push notifications, interactive maps, and city news to the public. By July 2014, ‘JC Now’ (v1.0) was completed and awarded 1st place in the Esri UC User Apps Fair – Mobile Apps category. JC Now is now on v2.3, has also won an ARC award and has quickly become a key tool in communicating with the public
Nick O’Day – City of Johns Creek
Nick O’Day is the GIS Manager for the City of Johns Creek, Georgia. Nick started his career in GIS while working for the Geospatial Technology Laboratory at the University of Georgia and has since expanded his GIS and IT expertise to include database design and implementation, geospatial analysis, interactive web-based mapping, and smartphone application development. He is currently enrolled in a Master’s of Computing Science Program at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Nick’s team recently won a 1st place award at the Esri International User Conference’s User Apps Fair for the city’s first smartphone app: JC Now. JC Now is available for Android and iOS devices, delivers pertinent information to the public, and also enables city officials to send emergency push notifications to users.
