Old Dominion University Irrigation Mapping Project


In the Summer of 2014, I began working with George Mcleod, the Lead GIS Engineer at Old Dominion University, as well as Chad Peevy, the Grounds Manager at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. It was a wonderful experience in which I learned the importance and growing demand of geospatial services on the web. The following is a link to download a File Geodatabase, as well as an MXD file, that were both created to represent vital components of Old Dominion University’s irrigation system. Both items were used to build a web application that displayed these components cartographically. The MXD file contains empty feature classes, but contains the structure, order, and symbology of feature classes that were ultimately published as feature services into a web application that was made using ArcGIS Viewer for Flex, which I subsequently entered all data into. The File Geodatabase also contains the domains and subtypes that I created for the purposes of attribute editing when editing data inside of the application.  I collected the locations of all components myself in coordination with Mr. Peevy, using pen and paper, and edited the web application to show the locations of different components of the irrigation system. Ultimately, with the help of Senior GIS Technician Christopher Contreras, I was able to deliver a product that is used to monitor and maintain the campus irrigation system  at Old Dominion University.
