Wisconsin Tax Law Enrollments GIS Application (WisTLE)
Tax law enrollment boundaries are one of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Forestry Division’s most requested datasets. For the past five years we have been digitizing more than 56,000 enrollment boundaries that were previously only available on paper maps. Tax Law Operations Specialist Jeff Simon will give you a walkthrough of this application, that will allow DNR Forestry staff the ability to view and edit Managed Forest Land and Forest Crop Law boundaries. WisTLE is only available to DNR staff at this time but future enhancements will allow for data sharing with local government agencies, as well as the general public.

Moving Forest Management to the Cloud
Many organizations experience challenges aligning their IT infrastructure with their staff’s data access needs, and this disconnect can hinder the ability for the business or agency to move forward in a timely manner with informed decision-making. In the forestry sector, staff are often in the field and may not have the ability to locate critical information for days, and in this world of “do more with less,” giving staff access to data the data they need when they need it, is a challenge for IT departments and decision-makers alike. An increasingly common approach to ensure data is available on-demand, is to host information in the cloud. More and more organizations are seeing the benefits of managing their data in a cloud environment, but the transition is not always an easy one. Questions arise regarding security, data management, access permissions, costs, etc. During this presentation, we will discuss a forestry use case to highlight one organization’s transition from desktop GIS software and paper records, to a cloud-hosted forest management system that integrates Esri’s ArcGIS Online capabilities. If you are thinking of making the move to the cloud and have questions you need answered, join us where we will share some of our experiences, advice and recommendations that apply to forestry and beyond.
