ESRI ArcPro

Jarod Fox, Esri

ArcGIS Pro is the latest professional desktop GIS application from Esri. With ArcGIS Pro, you can explore, visualize, and analyze data; create 2D maps and 3D scenes; and share your work to your ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise portal. This workshop will provide an introduction to the software for new users, demonstrate essential workflows, and discuss how ArcGIS Pro integrates within your broader geospatial infrastructure. 

PARCEL MAPS VS. SURVEY MAPS VS. GIS LEGAL STATUS

Steve Sorenson, von Briesen & Roper, SC

The program discusses the differences between the three different tools used to describe real property. During the discussion the uses of the different purposes for each of the categories is explored. Special attention is given to the legal status given to each of the tools. There will also be an examination of the historical development of each of the tools showing how different players in the real estate used and misuse the different tools. Finally an open period of time is available to discuss personal experiences and understanding of the different tools.

We'll expand the reach to questions concerning different uses of legal descriptions and the impact of reliance on public record data vs actual field data. A discussion of the concepts of platting vs historical use and occupancy would also be appropriate. Finally, a discussion on liability and risk when providing data to the general public is in order to answer everyone's burning questions!
