At Esri Federal GIS two weeks ago, there were a number of three-hour presentations called “Summits” that focused on particular areas of expertise and featured many federal agency experts.
From Esri: Citizens in 13 states head to the polls and caucuses today. This story map helps you learn more about the political leanings and demographics in each state.
Click on the tabs to see the political affiliation of residents in each county. Then, click on any county for demographics, including population, median income, and unemployment rates. Powered by the Esri ArcGIS platform and Esri demographic data.
This coming week, February 24-25, join more than 3,500 federal professionals to explore ground-breaking ways government uses geospatial technology to solve the world’s greatest challenges. GIS provides a platform like no other to integrate data, perform dynamic analysis, and then take action.
CartoConsult created a “before and after” photomontage to help to secure planning permission for a quarry extension in Kent. Working with DB Landscape Consultancy (DBLC) on behalf of site owners Ferns, CartoConsult prepared the high resolution photomontage to show the potential visibility for a sensitive site of the proposed extension to the existing Wrotham Quarry.
A topic coming up for February on GIS Voice:
the Cloud and Collaboration
ArcGIS Earth from Esri, a free, desktop-based interactive globe that can be used to explore the world, was launched last week. The globe works with various 3D and 2D map data formats including KML, Google’s data format. Among its capabilities are the ability for users to display data on the globe, sketch place marks, measure distances and areas, and add annotations for easy understanding of spatial information.
