Building a Public Safety Services Investment Tool

“Choosing how to allocate not just building dollars, but where and how to locate programs and capital assets across multiple locations. Using geographic principles such as multivariate and hotspot analyses, the City of Philadelphia and Geodecisions, Inc. have created a tool that helps better define where to place investment in municipal public safety services and how to improve the use of those services.

The presentation will also highlight the multi-criteria Decisions Support System that was developed using Web App builder for ArcGIS and ESRI JavaScript API. The application uses hosted feature services data that covers the different criteria needed for evaluating public safety funds allocation. The widget that was developed for the project enables the users to give different weighting for each criteria and run the decision model to get an instant rank for fund allocation.”

For the demo, just ArcGIS Online, but in order to do something similar, they’ll need:

GIS Service Hosting:
ArcGIS Online subscription (publisher account)
Map Authorizing Publishing:
ArcMap 10.3 – 10.5
Application Hosting:
Web Server (Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0 or higher)
Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS (Developer Edition)
ESRI Javascript API
Personal Computer with windows 8 or higher (for development)
Server with windows server 2012 R2 (for hosting the application)”
