As most public works projects occur within a geographic context, GIS is a powerful tool to support the entire project funding lifecycle. From acquiring the funding via grant application or other method, to prioritization, ensuring equity, providing transparency and accountability, engaging the public, documenting justification, and quantifying resilience, sustainability and effectiveness, this session will provide examples on how GIS should be a part of your project funding workflow with real-world examples following best practices.
You will walk away with practical knowledge in:
Shifting to real-time operations
Leveraging drones
Integrating artificial intelligence and machine learning
Embracing the new field mobility tools 
Evolving your civic engagement 
Leading through advanced data and analytics


Learning Objectives

After this session, participants will be able to:
• Identify how to apply geospatial technology to garner funding and increase the likelihood of success of that funding.
• Utilize another use of existing technology to increase geospatial technology return on investment.
• Employ complementary solutions that can be deployed today.
