10:30 – 11:00 – Andrew Newman/Brayden Curnock – treeOcode Niagara – Urban Tree Canopy Project
ABC Tree will be determining the spectral signature (RBG colour) of the top five municipally owned tree species in the City of St. Catharines. The analysis will be confirmed using ground truthing. While ground truthing the team of ABC Tree will try and determine if there is a correlation between Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) and Canopy Coverage.
11:00 – 11:30 – Jackie Agg – Complete Streets Project 2.0
This thesis is a continuation of the 2016-2017 Complete Streets Project, where the completeness of Welland Avenue was assessed and a model was created to efficiently input this data. The 2017-2018 Complete Streets project builds on the previous project, analyzing Niagara Street in St Catharines, while altering the existing model to include the degree of completeness at intersection nodes.
Complete Streets is a design policy that ensures all modes of transportation can safely and efficiently use the road (Niagara Transportation, 2017). Elements of this design include wide sidewalks, bike lanes and on street parking.
The project goal is to build on the successful model of the 2016-2017 Complete Streets project to include a North/South Regional Road (Niagara Street) and incorporate the degree of completeness at intersection nodes.

12:00 – 12:30 – Ali Qureshi/Louise Ampam – Sidewalk Inspection/Infrastructure
As part of its infrastructure management efforts, the Town of Grimsby conducts sidewalk inspections on a regular basis. The Town of Grimsby has recently started to use ESRI’s ArcGIS online and would like to update its processes regarding sidewalk inspections using this software tool. This application will be used to conduct sidewalk inspections using the ArcGIS Online application. Furthermore, the Town requires an analysis completed on the sidewalk inspection locations to evaluate potential problem areas for sidewalk infrastructure.
The proposed project will feature Ali Qureshi as the Project Manager and Louise Ampam as the GIS Analyst. The point of contact for the client will be Ms. Jennifer Gross, GIS Specialist for the Town of Grimsby. As noted in the Project Overview Statement (POS) for the proposed project (negotiated before this proposal was prepared), GeoCure will complete the following objectives:
- The first objective is Project Management, this objective includes meeting between clients, advisors and the project team as well as completing Progress Summaries and Earned Value Management Reports.
- The second objective is Project Understanding; this objective will allow the project team to study the literature surrounding similar projects and familiarize themselves with the clients provided data.
- The third objective of the project will focus upon the creation and testing of the ArcGIS Online application to be used for sidewalk inspections.
- The fourth objective of the project will include the geocoding of existing sidewalk inspection locations.
- The fifth and final objective will consist of conducting an analysis on the mapped data to report on problem areas of sidewalk.
Upon the completion of the project, The Town of Grimsby will be provided with the following deliverables:
- The first deliverable is the application to be used for sidewalk inspections.
- The second deliverable will be a final report consisting of an analysis regarding the problem areas of sidewalk.
