Esri’s new release of the Infrastructure Editing Template (IET)

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

According to Esri “the Infrastructure Network Editing template is an ArcGIS 10 editing map and toolbar for managing water, sewer and storm water utility data.  (http://bit.ly/bQONZD)

It is an editor that can be used by mapping technicians in a water utility, sewer authority or public works department. You can configure the Infrastructure Network Editing Template in your environment and in doing so, you’ll learn how to update and maintain water, sewer, and storm water data using ArcGIS Desktop and your organization’s data. To complete the configuration, you will need experience with editing workflows in ArcMap.

This template includes the following:

  • An editing toolbar, reporting toolbar, a set of constructions tools, and an editor extension that is added to your ArcInfo or ArcEditor installation
  • A multi-scale ArcMap document designed for editing
  • The Local Government geodatabase with sample data from the City of Naperville, Illinois

The Infrastructure Editing toolbars contain a series of custom editing and reporting tools that improve the editing experience for ArcGIS users working with infrastructure data. For example, there are tools that:

  • Automatically connect service connections to laterals and their mains
  • Report tracing results along the utility network
  • Graph the profile of a sewer main”

According to Esri, these tools require an ArcEditor or an ArcInfo ArcGIS Desktop License. A multi-user GDB is required if there is more than one editor. If you want to publish services of your water utility data, then an ArcGIS Server Standard or Advance is required.

Occupy Wall Street inspires more than protests: mapping tweets and Facebook pages

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

One month into the Occupy Wall Street protest, the internet is populated with maps depicting activity around the event, not only in the U.S. but in other countries as well. The movement has inspired map makers who may have been headed in another direction, such as Humphrey Flowerdew, who along with his partner, Trung Huynh, both based in London, were originally in business to use their Crafivy to aggregate and map real estate listings.

The Cravify Occupy Wall Street map shows tweets from throughout the world with the hashtags such as #occupywallst, #occupylsx, #occupyrome, #occupytokyo that are frequently updated.

Welcome to the GISCafe Voice

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

Welcome to our new offering, the  GISCafe Voice. This is a new editorial blog-type content that will provide more timely coverage of breaking news to be posted two-three times per week. The articles will provide rich editorial content on topics important to GIS and geospatial professionals, including conference coverage, coverage of geospatial being used in emergency response and disaster recovery, and new products and trends that shape the industry.

Why the GISCafe Voice at this time?

We’re noticing that as geospatial information and geographic information systems become more pervasive, they are becoming critical in more industries than ever before. They are a part of the defense military and homeland security departments, tracking and identification of weather systems such as hurricanes , tsunamis, floods and earthquakes. Organizations without large GIS departments still need access to GIS information which is possible now with technologies that allow individuals to view, markup and access GIS information on the internet or in the cloud. Crowdsourcing has added another dimension to GIS and geospatial, opening up the technology to anyone who wants to contribute current information about an event, community or disaster.

Esri ZIP Code Lookup tool lets you learn about local population

Monday, January 17th, 2011

Not exactly new, but notable is Esri’s ZIP Code Lookup tool that allows anyone to enter a ZIP Code in the U.S. and learn about those who live in that area.

Demographic and market information such as income, employment, vehicle preferences, and leisure activities are among the data the tool will display.

To use the tool, the user enters a ZIP Code, then the browser-based Silverlight application instantly generates three of what is known as Tapestry segments for the area in question. Esri’s Tapestry Segmentation system classifies U.S. residential neighborhoods into unique market segments that are based on socioeconomic and demographic data.
