ABSTRACT: 'The Town of West Springfield has developed several innovative approaches to using GIS for municipal applications. Using AGOL with related tables, our Building Department and Town Clerk have switched to using Collector to track building permits and dog licenses, instead of relying on outdated and under-supported software. We also implemented a Python script to send notification emails when new features are added to a DPW Request map, which alerts supervisors to work requests and potential emergencies. Moving forward this year, we hope to use Survey123 for Health Department inspections, as well as AGOL GeoForms--allowing utility companies to submit Street Occupancy Permits directly to our Engineering Department. All of these GIS applications are complemented by browser-based SQL reports, which can be customized to fit each department's unique needs. The goal of this presentation is to provide an overview of how we implemented these applications and address the issues we encountered along the way.
