(biographies listed below)

Similar to many other municipalities, the Town of East Gwillimbury needs to efficiently manage its snow removal activities. The fleet management solution GeoTab manages their road operations including snow removal. Outside of the team managing road operations, many other stakeholders at the Town need to understand the general progress of the work going on. As the GeoTab application generates a wide variety of rich data, the Town needed to find creative ways to share simplified views of the information that is understandable by different audiences and available in a timely manner.

Thanks to a collaborative work partnership between Consortech and the Town, a solution leveraging existing tools was developed to share the progress of road operations across the organization, and eventually with the public. Let us present to you how FME has been leveraged to process and automate data workflows from GeoTab to Esri’s Operations Dashboards and Power BI to give an updated view on operations in a relevant and timely manner.

Remain on the call after the webinar to network and socialize with your fellow BeSpatial members!

Rob Halko is passionate about utilizing technology in creative and effective ways, to simplify workflows and produce cost-effective results for the municipal sector. People are at the heart of it all - Rob likes to see everyone be successful and find joy in the day to day.

Lesley MacKenzie graduated from McGill University with a Bachelor of Arts in Geography. Passionate about geomatics, she has been working in this field for over 23 years and has become a world-renowned reference with FME technology. Throughout the years, she has designed a novel concept of governance and use of best practices with this technology. 

At Consortech, Lesley leads the consulting team in optimizing the use of FME and ArcGIS and accompanying clients towards geospatial performance.
