Track: Environmental Management
Authors: Molly Molter
To comply with State requirements, ArcGIS, Accela and GPS were integrated to collect noxious weed data to be compared annually and used as a decision support tool for weed management. Infestation polygons are drawn on paper in the field and digitized in ArcMap. Photos are taken using GPS cameras. Inspection notes are entered in Accela. Make Query Table tool joins the inspection tables to the infestation polygons. A Python script creates a point feature class for the GPS photos.
