With a long history of caring for the extensive forest canopy in DC, the District Department of Transportation Urban Forestry Division has meticulously assembled datasets and applications to help in the division’s forest management mission as well as to communicate with a variety of audiences. Esri technology has been key to the successful management and equitable allocation of resources, as well as the communication of progress to city residents and stakeholders. Read more about this important work and the use of technology to promote data transparency on page 5 of Esri’s recent State and Local Government newsletter.

SymGEO is pleased to announce we have been awarded Esri’s State and Local Government Specialty designation. This award recognizes SymGEO’s expertise in state and local government, implementation, and delivery of services that help customers succeed. This specialty is one of Esri’s newest specialties, and SymGEO is pleased to join four other prestigious partners who have obtained this designation.
SymGEO has been fortunate to work with great government clients on projects that have now appeared at Esri plenary presentations around the country, with the most recent being at the Esri Federal GIS Conference 2021. Our web GIS work with the District Department of Transportation and our 3D flood visualization work both made an appearance on the main stage. We are really thankful for the opportunity and trust that Esri has placed in our skills and services with the State and Local Government Specialty designation, and we look forward to helping our client partners implement Esri technology for years to come.
SymGEO is excited to demonstrate flood visualization technology built on the Esri Local Government 3D Basemap Solution. In this example, the City of Laurel, Maryland, has a number of buildings that are located in the floodplain and are therefore at risk of flooding. This information can be conveyed using the FEMA National Flood Hazard Layer (NFHL) Viewer as shown below, but we decided to bring this data to life using an Esri ArcGIS Solution instead!
Realistic building textures, vegetation, and current imagery allow the user audience to recognize features and landmarks during demonstrations. Streets can be labeled, and buildings of interest can be highlighted with either labels or colors to call attention to focus areas.
Continual improvements using Esri’s 3D rendering and animation technology enable fly-throughs, call-outs, layer transitions, time-lapse visualizations, and other features and functionality that make this 3D basemap solution the perfect tool to communicate risk and mitigation plans.

SymGEO was honored to work with a leading commercial real estate broker to identify and construct almost 1500 industrial buildings in 3D. Using a provided list of addresses, the buildings were geocoded using ArcGIS Pro and visually inspected to validate the location. We then used Esri’s “World Image Clarity” basemap and ArcGIS Pro editing tools to construct building footprints and to segment them based on roof shadow lines. Roof heights were assigned based on known values or were given a default value if unknown. Buildings ranged from “quite simple” to “reasonably complex”, but we worked tirelessly to complete the task!
“Thanks again for all your work on this.” – Program Manager, Client Confidential

We were fortunate to have three of our listings accepted into the marketplace. The first is our ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Hub solutions configuration and implementation services. These services focus on our expertise with the ArcGIS Online environment, data analytics and visualization, application configuration and deployment, and community engagement using ArcGIS Hub.
Our second listing is a partner solution focused on an ArcGIS Hub configuration called Downtown: Energize!. This solution is configurable for cities or communities looking to energize their downtown core with retail that fits the needs of the local population. This solution empowers the local community to explore retail in their area and to voice their opinions on what types of new commercial development they feel would do well.
Our third listing provides information about our 3d building modeling capabilities. This solution leverages ArcGIS Pro for 3d model production, ArcGIS CityEngine for model texturing, analysis, and landscape refinement, and Unreal Engine by Epic Games for rendering and visualizations. Whether the goal is a digital twin or proposed development scenarios, the end result is a virtual environment that can’t wait to be explored!

SymGEO is pleased to announce we have been awarded Esri’s Release Ready Specialty designation! This honor is for partners that are highly focused on delivering services, content or solutions leveraging the latest versions of ArcGIS technology.
“ArcGIS is a platform for organizations to create, manage, share, and analyze spatial data. It consists of server components, mobile and desktop applications, and developer tools. This platform can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud (Amazon, Azure) with ArcGIS Enterprise, or used via ArcGIS Online which is hosted and managed by Esri.” – Esri
Less than a hundred Esri Partners have been awarded this specialty (out of almost 3500 partners), so we are grateful to be among the top 3 percent! SymGEO has been fortunate to work with great clients on projects that have now appeared at Esri plenary presentations around the country. We are really thankful for the opportunity and trust that Esri has placed in our skills and services with the Release Ready Specialty designation, and we look forward to continuing to develop as GIS professionals over the coming years!
