00:07Around the world, today's geographic information systems provide powerful tools that help people manage...
00:12...information like never before.
00:15Recent innovations in these tools, like the introduction of GeoDesign, allow professionals to create, analyze...
00:20...and refine geographic data in real time.
00:24GeoDesign is truly changing the way people work.
00:27We can now design with geography.
00:30An interactive pen display combines the viewing advantages of a large LCD monitor with workflow efficiencies...
00:36...like improved control, comfort, and productivity.
00:39By using a pen directly on-screen, GIS professionals have an intuitive, new way to work across hundreds of different industries.
00:47Pairing Wacom's interactive pen display with ArcMap allows firefighters and emergency responders to manage...
00:53...and share information about wildfires.
00:56At the response command post, operators can overlay real-time information on a digital map...
01:01...to aid in the organization and deployment of resources.
01:04Using a pen, these operators easily mark up maps, position symbols, and relay constantly changing...
01:07...organization and deployment of resources.
01:10...variables to response units on the ground.
01:13Here we're looking at a satellite image of the city of Yucaipa, California, and I've just received word that there's a wildfire...
01:19...broken out and I want to make a map of that, which I can push out to firefighters out in the field, and make...
01:24...printed maps of that to distribute to other personnel, as well.
01:28The ArcGIS 10 editing environment allows me to choose the symbols that I want to draw with; the Wacom interactive...
01:33...pen allows me to add those symbols to the map as I would if I was drawing on a standard paper topo map.
01:40I'll begin by adding the uncontrolled fire edge.
01:42When the fire changes, I can simply go in, create that new fire edge, create where I've actually completed a burnout.
01:50That is information that's in the database, live; I save my edits, and I push it out through the server technology to the people...
01:57...out in the field who need it.
01:59In urban planning and development, professionals can use the interactive pen display to sketch out, serve and chart areas for development.
02:06In this particular scenario, I'm doing the work of a land-use planner who is looking at an area which has potential for redevelopment.
02:12Using ArcMap, feature templates, and the Wacom interactive pen display, I can sketch out an idea for a master plan for an area.
02:20First thing I'll do is create a commercial area.
02:24I can just do a quick sketch and say, here is where I'd like the commercial area to be.
02:28Maybe I want to put in some low density, maybe off to the side here.
02:32Maybe I want to put in some moderate density, off to this side.
02:36Maybe I want to put in some agriculture over in this area.
02:41I can get immediate feedback over how much commercial, mixed use, agriculture, and so on, that I've added to my design...
02:48...just to keep me on track to make sure that I have adequate space for people to live, for people to work...
02:53...and for people to grow their food, in this case.
02:55We're no longer waiting to see what happens and then mapping it.
02:59We're creating it.
03:00We're mapping it on the fly, we're analyzing it on the fly, and getting that feedback right away.
03:04When used together, Wacom interactive pen displays and ArcGIS software provide a powerful combination that helps speed workflow...
03:12...and improve the effectiveness of professionals in the field.
