00:06Hello. My name is Craig McCabe.

00:08And I'm going to be demonstrating the Campus Editing Template.

00:10You can locate this template by going to the Local Government Resource Center...

00:14...and then navigating to the Public Works section...

00:16...where you can then click on the facilities and grounds link inside.

00:21And this will take you directly to the template to download.

00:24You can also find the template by going to the Local Government Gallery...

00:28...and using a search term of "campus template" to filter the template results.

00:33So you can see there are three campus templates.

00:36And they all work together as a system.

00:38So first we start with the editing template...

00:40...where you can create and manage your campus data...

00:43...which includes interior data as well as campus exterior data.

00:48Then you can create a cached multiscale basemap using this campus data.

00:53And finally, plug that basemap into the Campus Place Finder Template...

00:57...to locate people and places on your campus.

01:00So if we go to the editing template...

01:02...we can see some information about the template on the right-hand side.

01:06And what you get with the editing template is an ArcMap document for editing...

01:09...a set of workflows, as well as a geodatabase containing sample data...

01:13...for Esri's campus in Redlands, California.

01:16And using this template, you can quickly sketch in or import features...

01:19...for your own campus location.

01:21So let's start off and look at some of the components of the editing map.

01:26As you can see, the ArcMap document has two group layers in the Table of Contents.

01:30One for editing interior features, like building floor plan information.

01:34And one for exterior editing, which can include features like trees...

01:37...landscaped areas, building footprints, paved surfaces, and pavement marking symbols.

01:43So there are a couple different ways to get building floor plan data into the GIS.

01:47The first method is to manually trace georeferenced floor plan rasters...

01:52...as we see here for Building F.

01:54However, one of the main hurdles in creating data from scratch is populating attributes.

01:59So to assist with this, we've included the Attribute Assistant editing add-in...

02:03...which streamlines this process.

02:04You can see it up at the top in the green.

02:08We have a small, one-story building here that houses the Learning Center.

02:11And I first georeferenced the floor plan image using aerial imagery...

02:15...and then digitized a building floor polygon from that georeferenced image.

02:19So if we look at the attributes, you can see I've populated the building name...

02:23...floor number, base elevation, and other information.

02:27And we've set up the Attribute Assistant to populate attributes for any features digitized...

02:31...within this building floor polygon to get its attributes.

02:34For example, I've traced in some floor plan lines here using the...

02:38...Create Features Template.

02:39And I'm going to add an additional floor plan line here to divide a room...

02:43...and you can see how the Attribute Assistant works.

02:45So I'll start an edit session.

02:48And using the Create Features Template, I will add an interior wall that is...

02:51...perpendicular to this wall here at the end.

02:53So I'll use the Constrain Perpendicular tool and then extend it across.

02:58And if I open up the attribute table for that line, you can see that it gained...

03:02...the floor number, the base elevation, the unique floor identifier, and building identifier...

03:06...for that floor polygon.

03:08The Attribute Assistant populates these values based on some rules set up in the...

03:12...DynamicValue table.

03:13So we see here at the top, the last editor and last update...

03:17...is populated automatically for every entry.

03:20And the Intersect Feature rule defines building floor plan line attributes...

03:25...based on the intersection with the underlying floor.

03:29So to illustrate this point a little bit further...

03:31...we will add a floor plan line outside of our building polygon.

03:36And as you can see, it does not have the floor number, floor identifier...

03:39...or building identifier information.

03:41But as soon as we drag it inside...

03:43...the Intersect rule then populates the floor number and building information.

03:47So it's a real time-saving add-on.

03:49And we'll use it some more with the campus exterior editing.

03:53So getting back to our interior floor plan, once we finish creating our line features...

03:58...to define the interior spaces, which may include phantom lines...

04:01...to separate reception spaces or closed doorways...

04:04...the Feature To Polygon tool is used to create polygons from these line features.

04:09So we use our input of our Building Floorplan Lines...

04:12...and the output polygon features we load into the Local Government data model...

04:16...and then add them to the Building Interior Space feature, which we see here.

04:20So now we want to add attributes for these building interior spaces.

04:24And so we'll start with the top left corner here of our Building F.

04:28And once we start the editing session, we will again use the Attribute Assistant...

04:32...to automatically intersect that office with the underlying floor polygon.

04:37So we see the attributes are blank, and so what we're going to do is add a...

04:41...unique space identifier, which is the office number here.

04:44And it will automatically populate all the other attributes based on the intersection.

04:49The only other thing we need to do is add the office type...

04:52...which is the Space Type attribute...

04:54...which will define a conference room from an office or a restroom.

04:59And so we repeat this process for the rest of our offices on this floor...

05:03...and any additional floors, if available.

05:06The end result is that we've created GIS features from our scanned paper maps.

05:10And now we can use these features to locate people and places on our campus...

05:14...using the Campus Place Finder application.

05:19And while some organizations do store their floor plans on paper maps...

05:22...it's more commonly maintained in CAD drawings.

05:24So we've included in the editing template some workflows and models to demonstrate...

05:28...the CAD to GIS integration process.

05:30In the template documentation folder, you will find a CAD import tutorial...

05:34...which uses sample CAD data for another campus building.

05:37The steps to integrate CAD data into our GIS are essentially the same...

05:40...as the process we just went through manually.

05:42First, the CAD data is georeferenced and extracted.

05:46Then, the data is transformed from lines to polygons.

05:48And finally, it's loaded into the geodatabase for use by our campus templates.

05:53And two geoprocessing models are included in the Campus toolbox to...

05:56...accomplish the extract, transform, and load steps.

05:59The first creates interior space polygons from the CAD lines...

06:02...while the second loads these features into the geodatabase.

06:06Now that we've looked at the process of creating and importing building floor plan...

06:09...data, let's look at some of the tools for managing our campus exterior features.

06:14So we're looking at a cached map of the Esri campus that I created with the...

06:17...Campus Basemap Template after capturing the features using the editing template.

06:22So there are a couple of empty lots here on the southeast side of the campus...

06:25...near Building F.

06:26And we're going to go ahead and sketch in some additional features here.

06:32We'll start another edit session.

06:33And you can see in the Create Features pane on the right we have a palette of...

06:36...several different vegetation, landscape, pavement, and other features you can create.

06:40I've already begun sketching in some features here on the south side of campus.

06:43And I typically start with building footprints and paved features first, like sidewalks...

06:47...streets, or parking lots, and then fill in the vegetation after that.

06:51Again, we're using the Attribute Assistant, though instead getting attributes...

06:54...from a building floor, we are intersecting our new features with a facility site polygon...

06:58...which is outlined in red.

06:59So anything we digitize within this polygon is tagged as belonging to Esri Redlands.

07:04I'll fill in these grassy areas now.

07:06I've already used straight and curved lines for sketching in pavement...

07:09...and constrained parallel and perpendicular from any Pavement Marking Lines.

07:12And now I'll continue with the Trace tool for my vegetation.

07:15To use the Trace tool, just click on the feature you want to follow...

07:18...and move the mouse along its edge until it's complete.

07:20With the Trace tool, it becomes a quick process to get the vegetation sketched in...

07:24...once you've finished your surrounding pavement.

07:26If we want to change the polygon type to a planter area...

07:29...simply select that in the Create Features Template...

07:31...use the Trace tool again, and fill in the gaps.

07:35So now I want to add some multilayer tree symbols to the map.

07:38So I will select an elm tree at the bottom of the Create Features Template...

07:42...and place it next to this building.

07:44And now if we look at the tree's attributes, we see that the facility ID of Esri Redlands...

07:48...as well as other attributes are automatically populated by the Attribute Assistant.

07:52And like the building floor plan features...

07:54...anything we bring into this facility site polygon...

07:56...will gain the appropriate Esri ownership information.

08:02To end on one final example, I built out a portion of downtown Naperville, Illinois...

08:06...using the editing template.

08:08Here we can see what a small town, park, and college area look like...

08:11...once we cache the data using the Campus Basemap Template.

08:15In this instance, I simply created an empty local government geodatabase...

08:18...in the local coordinate system.

08:20...placed the ArcMap editing document in the same folder...

08:22...and started tracing over the Esri imagery service.

08:26With the addition of some building interior data to this map, it can quickly become...

08:29...an interactive campus web map for locating offices or people...

08:32...or to find classrooms on a college campus.

08:35And that wraps up our tour of the Campus Editing Template.

08:38Download it from the Local Government Resource Center...

08:40...and post any feedback in the comments section.

08:43Also, be sure to take a look at the Campus Place Finder video...

08:46...for more information on how you can leverage your building floor plan data...

08:49...to make your campus map intelligent.
