Migrating a Century’s Worth of Utility Easements into GIS
Track: Python for Arcgis
Authors: Jason Ramsey
APS was faced with the problem of how to migrate an existing land record database into GIS and continually update the GIS records using the current workflow of non-GIS personnel. APS’ solution was to create an ArcPy script extracting multiple sources of spatial data from the land database and creating a feature class. Python allows APS to maintain up-to-date records within GIS without disrupting existing workflows. This project can be useful to others who need to migrate land records into GIS.
