The afternoon of 06/18/2020, Gistic hosted another Open GIVing session. The four attendees represented Coconino County, Pima County, and the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRPMIC).
During this meeting, we:
- Helped Doran Dalton (SRPMIC) load data;
- Discovered an issue with data loading and QCing;
- Discussed how Chole Whittaker (Pima County) and Samantha Dinning (Coconino County) can be added as users and/or administrators;
- Reviewed available AZGIV resources, including the AZGIV YouTube playlist and the GIVs resource page on the Gistic website.
During the previous Open GIVing sessions, users have asked for enhancements and a few bugs have come to light:
User-Requested Enhancements under Development:
- Separate errors, warnings, and exceptions, and allow these findings to be configurable by the agency;
- Create an exception list;
- Add a white halo around points on the map, so they are more visible;
- Expose the user guide and YouTube videos on the login screen, so completely new users can get help without logging in.
- The web UI does not work in Microsoft browsers, so there should be a popup warning message when the user tries to load AZGIV in Internet Explorer or Edge.
- Autofill the dataset category after a user uploads points or lines;
- Browser caching preventing a sub-agency admin from uploading data;
- Keep data processing history even after data is deleted and purged.
Stay Tuned for these upcoming resources:
- Updated video demonstrating the procedure to download, install and use the AZGIV addin on GitHub;
- Video demonstrating how a parent agency can withdraw the approval of a layer, so a child agency may update the layer.
Open GIVing session is a bi-weekly event hosted by TSSW and Gistic to help AZGIV users to improve their NG911 readiness. No registration is required. Here is how and when to participate. Happy GIVing!
