Lou LeyFlorida Land Use Data Layer 1995-2000The Water Management Districts developed the Florida Land Use data layer.<BR>It’s used by a variety of agencies and organizations in support of critical projects <BR>and programs. These include Pollution Load Reduction Goals, Total Maximum <BR>Daily Loads, Everglades restoration, protecting and conserving Florida`s water <BR>supply, protecting Florida`s springs, protecting the health of Florida`s communities<BR>and acquiring, conserving and managing critical lands.<BR><BR>This poster illustrates one technique that we use to add value and information<BR>to the land use data. In this poster, we overlay the land use data onto a hill-shaded relief<BR>map. In many areas there is a direct relationship between the type of land use and the geography/elevation. Using this technique in conjunction with a harmonious color scheme enhances the information value of the map and results in a product that is pleasing to the eye.<BR>Spatial Analysis or Visualization
Jay JohnsonRefining Watershed Boundaries with ArcHydro Tools and LiDAR dataTallahassee-Leon County`s acquisition of high-accuracy LiDAR data in 2002 revealed never before seen and vivid detail in the topographic surface, particularly in areas of dense tree canopy. Many of our environmentally sensitive layers are derived from the Digital Elevation Model (DEM) so an update project was needed to bring these derivative layers into agreement with the updated DEM. This poster highlights the ESA Watershed Update project including use of the ArcHydro toolset (along with a few bits of creative trickery) to refine the boundaries of our Basins, Watersheds, and Catchments.Spatial Analysis or Visualization
Jeffrey T. WatersHurricane Staging Areas vs. Permitted Solid Waste Disposal FacilitiesDuring the 2004 hurricane season the Florida Department of Environmental Protection-Central District’s region was hit by three major hurricanes. As a result, over 100 hurricane staging areas were set up to manage and volume reduce the large amounts of vegetative waste and construction and demolition debris. The waste management inspectors of the Central District were tasked with the inspections of each hurricane staging area on a regular basis. This was in addition to the normal level of service inspections performed at the District’s permitted disposal facilities. This map is designed to allow inspectors to easily determine the locations of the hurricane staging areas that are in the vicinity of the permitted disposal facilities.Spatial Analysis or Visualization

Valerie JohnsonColor and Line Size ChoicesAre your maps difficult to read because of poor symbology choices? ArcMap has many colors, line width sizes, and fonts from which you can choose to symbolize features … but that doesn’t mean you should use them! This poster illustrates which colors from ArcMap’s standard palette are most visible displayed over aerial photos (color and B&W). It also provides tips about choosing line sizes, typestyles, and type sizes for optimal viewing.Spatial Analysis or Visualization

Chris DuclosA Procedure for Disease Mapping: Bayesian Models and GISTraditionally, disease mapping has used the standardized incidence ratio (SIR), an estimate of the occurrence of disease in a population relative to what might be expected if the population had the same disease experience as some larger comparison population. Although widely used in disease mapping, there are a number of limitations to SIRs. As an alternative, we show the usefulness of a Bayesian approach for modeling Leukemia rates in Florida. We utilize GIS for estimating adjacency and mapping results, but use Bayesian software to develop and run the models. Our goal is to demonstrate the advantage of working with widely available software to create a workflow for probabilistic disease mapping. The model explored the relationship between contaminated petroleum facilities and adult Leukemia rates. The model is a Bayesian Poisson regression containing structured and unstructured random effects. Sample values of model parameters are generated using WinBUGS software, with ArcGIS for mapping.Spatial Analysis or Visualization
William H. Pollock, AICPMesaure. Manage. Model. Map. EHGIS Florida Department of Health <BR>Division of Environmental Health <BR>Bureau of Onsite Sewage <BR><BR>The steps illustrate the real-world application of GIS to an Environmental Health issue in Gadsden County. The end result information products include maps depicting the location of septic drain fields in severely sloped terrain, areas in which raw sewage has surfaced. The County Health Department can use the spatial analyses and these information products to communicate with other County officials, local developers, and the public. Project Presentation
Aisa CericArc Hydro as Applied at the St. Johns River Water Management District in NE FloridaAn Arc Hydro data model was created to address the needs of the Surface Water Quality Monitoring (SWQM) program at the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD), an agency created by the Florida legislature to protect and improve or restore water resources in northeast Florida. Primary data sources for the model were SJRWMD surface water catchments and the 100K National Hydrography Dataset, which was modified for the needs of the project. Hydrological and water-quality monitoring sites were also added. Three customized tools were developed to help query, retrieve, and summarize data from SJRWMD tabular and spatial databases: 1) a water quality tool for retrieving environmental data (water quality, sediment, biological, etc.), 2) a rainfall tool for retrieving and summarizing daily NEXRAD precipitation data, and 3) a spatial data characterization tool for summarizing spatial data (land use, soil, geology, population, etc.). The Arc Hydro framework was used to generate environmental summaries for a series of web-based “Fact Pages” to present information on SWQM monitoring sites.Project Presentation

Jay WhiteOmbudsman Resource GuideThis poster will act as a resource guide for the Central District ombudsman. The poster will have contact information for the Florida House of Representatives for the eight counties that make up the Central District DEP, as well as contact information for the different Water Management Districts. We will also include answers to frequently asked questions.Did Not Make Selection
Ken Brown, GISPPotable Water Consumption by ProximityIllustrates the use of ArcIMS to extract database records and link these values to basemap parcels. Additionally, these results are shown in specific relation to parcel proximity to surface water resources. As a result, a visual relationship of potable water consumption to wet lot/dry lot status can be seen.Project Presentation
Christine KirkpatrickThe Econlockhatchee River System, an Outstanding Florida Water, Impacted by Nearby Automobile RecyclThe poster depicts the Econlockhatchee River System in eastern Orange County and the automobile recyclers (salvage yards) in the same area. Automobile recyclers located adjacent to its tributaries are a potential source of contamination to this river system.Spatial Analysis or Visualization

Debra HarringtonTools for 3D Springshed Visualization and Water Quality AnalysisTwo types of 3D spatial analyses were used to display fuzzy or blurred dynamic boundary edges, land use, wells and changes in water quality for springsheds. The springshed boundary edges are based on ground water flow paths that are sometimes complex to delineate and have a higher uncertainty than the interior portion of the springshed area. A fuzzy boundary more accurately depicts this uncertainty and is created by using GRID with a distance weighted value to create TIN files using 3D Analyst. The 3D spatial analyses of several layers are superimposed over the fuzzy springshed boundaries to create a visually intuitive representation that would otherwise be much harder to interpret. The combination of these two techniques with a 3D spatial presentation eliminate the need for time intensive static artwork, create a better alternative to traditional cartographic displays and assists decision-making in springshed assessments.Spatial Analysis or Visualization

Generalized Future Land Use for Central FloridaRegional Mapping ProgramThe representation of the region`s growth policy, as adopted by 90 local givernments that exercise land use authority in Central Florida. The desired location for various types of activities are illustrated through color-coded land use categories. A coherent presentation is possible by creating a regional translation table that provides for a consistent classification of future land uses across multiple jurisdictions.Project Presentation
