Track: Web Apps
Authors: Jasmine du
Abt SRBI is a full-service survey research organization specializing in primary data collection for public policy research. We provide full in-house data collection and methodological capabilities including questionnaire development, cognitive testing, multivariate analyses, statistical modeling, complex sample design and weighting, focus group discussions, and complete GIS capabilities. In a typical year, the Abt SRBI GIS department supports hundreds of survey research projects with various GIS tasks. Abt SRBI GIS has built several customized mapping applications using ESRI ArcGIS APIs and ArcGIS Server for use by both internal Abt SRBI staff and external clients. The applications were built to use GIS data published from our ArcGIS Server to assist on data sampling, data collection, statistics, spatial analysis and visualization. The presentation will include a demonstration of the applications, system architecture, results, and best practices learned on use of API technology for survey research projects. These ESRI GIS tools have added great value to Abt SRBI survey projects.
