City of Berkeley Enlists Farallon Geographics to Migrate to Esri LGIM and Leverage Off-the-Shelf Services, Applications and Workflows
Farallon Geographics worked with the City of Berkeley to efficiently migrate their GIS from a legacy data model to Esri’s “Local Government Information Model” (LGIM). Farallon delivered an ETL script, verified the integrity of the transformed data and deployed the populated LGIM database to the new server architecture and geodatabase.
Arches 4 will allow everyday users to create graphs, forms and reports without having to write code. Developers can add their own additional magic using custom widgets and custom data types.
As geospatial experts we need to ensure that our data can survive the software that we use to create, edit, and interact with it. But how do we do this? How do we build for data longevity?

Writing a Strategic Plan gives me the opportunity to research the latest technologies, review what we’ve done for other clients and then weave that into an optimized, tailored solution for the client.

Creating and modifying resource graphs in Arches v3 required some technical expertise. But with Arches v4, using a simple interface, users can create completely new resources by selecting from a suite of graphs (each of which describes a set of related information, data entry forms, and report templates).
We work with the Getty Conservation Institute to create this Arches Demonstration Site to give anyone the opportunity to get a hands-on perspective of the Arches v3.0 platform without having to install the software.
Cultural heritage requires a more sophisticated way of thinking about cultural significance. It’s not necessarily the object that matters, it’s the relationship of that object to other things that matters. This is how we designed Arches.
