Yurok Tribe Spacial Planning

Innovate leverages Esri’s ArcGIS Indoors for Yurok Indian Reservation
Executive Summary

Innovate processed GIS data that was provided for Yurok’s 30 buildings and integrated those data into Esri’s ArcGIS Indoors data model, built two (2) applications, and deployed a Survey123 tool​.

The Subject

The Yurok Indian Reservation is a Native American reservation for the Yurok people located in parts of Del Norte and Humboldt counties, California, on a 44-mile stretch of the Klamath River. It is one of a very few tribes who have never been removed from their ancestral lands in California.

The mission of the Yurok Tribe is to exercise the aboriginal and sovereign rights of the Yurok People to continue forever our Tribal traditions of self-governance, cultural and spiritual preservation, stewardship of Yurok lands, waters and other natural endowments, balanced social and economic development, peace and reciprocity, and respect for the dignity and individual rights of all persons living within the jurisdiction of the Yurok Tribe, while honoring our Creator, our ancestors and our descendants.

The Challenge

The Yurok Tribe is currently the largest Tribe in California, with more than 5,000 enrolled members. As members return to shared spaces (e.g., office buildings, hotels, etc.), the Yurok Tribe wanted a safe solution to help manage spatial planning and facilitate social distancing per the COVID-19 guidelines.

The Solution

Innovate processed GIS data that was provided for Yurok’s 30 buildings and integrated those data into Esri’s ArcGIS Indoors data model. We built a mesh network for the traversable spaces along with point-of-interests (POI) in order to integrate them into the Indoors web and mobile data viewer applications. From the 2D point, line, and polygon data we converted them into a 3D scene and integrated those into the Indoors data viewer application. We set up geofencing in the traversable lattice network to restrict areas that are fully open to the public from those that are employee access only. By creating these restrictions, the Indoors data viewer will only provide navigation options to the public in those areas that they’re allowed to access.

Two (2) web/mobile applications were built using Esri technologies:

The Indoor Data Viewer / Navigator Application is used drill down into detailed specifics of each room (use type, is it vacant, etc.), as well as allows users to filter data (what type of facility, what type of room) to navigate between locations. For example, a user can get turn-by-turn directions from the main conference room to a specific office, whether in that building or throughout the Yurok campus.

 

The Space Planner Application displays web maps and dashboards with facility information and reservation capabilities for rooms within the buildings. It can also be used for space planning and to assist to map out social distancing requirements and identify those areas where staff may be closer than the proximity guidelines and need to be relocated.

Innovate will also develop a Survey123 maintenance ticketing survey that integrates the Indoors mobile application so ground’s personnel can easily navigate to the areas that need service.​

In 2020, Innovate was certified by Esri as a partner in the ArcGIS Indoors Specialty. The ArcGIS Indoors Specialty designation is the newest awarded by Esri following Innovate’s attainment of Esri’s ArcGIS Release Ready, ArcGIS Online, Local Government, and SmallBusiness specialties that Innovate currently holds. Partners in the ArcGISIndoors Specialty are recognized for their knowledge and expertise in indoor mapping for use in creating connected workspaces.

 

ArcGIS Indoors is a unique platform of opportunity designed specifically for interior use. The implementation of ArcGIS mapping in the workspace allows for smart building management, whether it be one or multiple buildings. WithinArcGIS Indoors, users can view a building in multiple dimensions, including levels and attributes within the structure. ArcGIS Indoors allows organizations to strategically organize and allocate their space to increase productivity and collaboration among coworkers. It is important for organizations to have a full understanding as to where assets reside (e.g., shipments’ status, up to date inspection records, etc.), which can easily be tracked using ArcGIS Indoors.
