00:07Hi, my name is Jeff Baranyi.

00:10Today, I’d like to show you the latest version of the Public Safety Damage Assessment...

00:13...Template from the ArcGIS Resource Center.

00:17This is a part of our work on ArcGIS for Emergency Management...

00:20...and ArcGIS for Local Government templates.

00:22This latest version is based on ArcGIS 10.1 and ArcGIS for Windows Mobile 3.1.

00:30The purpose of this application is to give damage assessment team members...

00:34...a tool to conduct the assessment more efficiently and accurately... using this mobile application instead of traditional paper forms.

00:44Now, I’d like to give you a quick tour and...

00:46...highlight some of the new features in this version.

00:51First of all, we have three new forms to collect.

00:55This is based on some work with the state of Idaho...

00:58...and looking at their damage assessment handbook.

01:01We have elements to collect for damage to commercial buildings...

01:05...damage to public facilities and damage to residential buildings.

01:13Here, we’re looking at the Try It Live version of the ArcGIS Mobile Assessment application.

01:20So if I were to conduct a damage assessment in this area...

01:25...perhaps based on the results of some flooding or tornado...

01:28...the first thing I would want to do is indicate where work is being done.

01:32So by using the US National Grid, I can update and indicate...

01:38...the status of the work being done in this area indicate that... is in progress and indicate that the percent complete is only 10 percent.

01:51Next, I can start the work for the area that I’ve been assigned.

01:55I’ll zoom in here a little bit closer.

01:58And I can start the collection for this area.

02:02So here we see again the three different types of forms that I collect in the field.

02:07And I’m going to, in this case...

02:10...indicate that there’s been minor damage to a home in the area.

02:17The first step is to collect the geometry.

02:19In this case, I’m going to use the map...

02:21...since I’m on my laptop and don’t have GPS connected.

02:25But if your device had GPS, you could see your position and use that to collect the data.

02:33Next, I'm going to edit the attributes.

02:35This is the information that was driven from that paper form.

02:39So here we see things like the Inspector's information home owner information...

02:47...the primary residence for example is the structure insured?

02:59What was the primary cause of the damage?

03:04And the estimated loss is just a couple of examples.

03:12Another key feature is the ability to add attachments.

03:16These can be things like photographs that...

03:19...we either use the camera on the device or we can simply add a file.

03:25This becomes a part of the record.

03:32Now, I'm done with the assessment for this area.

03:37Now, there's another key feature that's a part of this Damage Assessment template.

03:42And this is based on feedback that we've gotten from some of our users.

03:47Once all of the edits come back in from the field...

03:51...we want to create reports from this information.

03:53Maps may be one element, but another key element may be simply tabular reports.

03:59So another feature of this particular template...

04:03...are some Excel and .csv conversion tools.

04:06So for example, if I wanted to have an Excel spreadsheet version of my report... incorporate in a larger macro-spreadsheet I can do that.

04:17I can simply use the TableToExcel tool here... create an Excel spreadsheet of the attributes of the results of my work in the field.

04:27So now, we're looking at the export of that feature class, and I can copy and paste...

04:34...some of this information into other macros or reports if those are available... create more useful information products for this process.

04:47So a couple of other things to note here in closing.

04:51You can also use the schema here that's provided to create either ArcGIS for Server...

04:56...or ArcGIS Online feature services to collect the same type of data using smart phones.

05:04In 2013, we'll look to release a specific smart-phone version of the same exact template.

05:12So thanks for watching.

05:14We hope this was useful.

05:15And we look forward to hearing your feedback.
