How is your ArcGIS map problem like Thanksgiving dinner?

Friday, November 18th, 2016

Think about your Thanksgiving dinner. Hours of preparation, pots and pans galore, chopping here, sampling there. Finally the dinner table is covered with dishes heaped with food. Turkey, mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts, rolls, carrots on and on. All sit down to the feast. So how are you going to eat the meal? What combination of food will you eat? How will you assemble what you choose – cover all with gravy, make sure the potatoes don’t touch the carrots (my kids), avoid the turkey (vegetarians like myself)?

You have all the pieces you need to assemble that delicious meal. So how does this relate to ArcGIS and intelligent maps?

My map problem is like a home cooked meal HELP!

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

You cannot beat a home cooked meal. To me little tastes better than a meal cooked by my wife. Carefully assembled, beautifully put together. I watch with awe as my wife goes back and forth from the fridge and food cupboard. Cutting, combining, mixing. One pan here, another there, steaming, bubbling. The air filled with such wonderful smells.

My job? To sample and give feedback. Love it. Maybe a little more spice here, more thickening there. But please don’t ask me to do the same: cook a wonderful, tasty meal!

Your map problem might be the same.

Is your map problem like a frozen dinner?

Monday, November 14th, 2016

I’m not much of a foodie I have to admit. As a vegetarian, I would be happy eating black bean burritos each night. That said, Mr L and I extended our conversation around our ArcGIS Solutions Pyramid. Our focus question: “How can we express the 5 levels of the pyramid in a more understandable way?”

Desperate need for ArcGIS business solution experts

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

I am sometimes asked “In which area of ArcGIS do you see the biggest skill shortage?” My answer: ArcGIS business solution experts!

A follow up question from this response is often “What is an ArcGIS business solution expert?”

Looking into the future this role will be hugely important to any and all GIS and intelligent map implementations.

What is your ArcGIS persona?

Monday, November 7th, 2016

Hmm, that term persona. I keep reading about the need to ‘define a persona’ for clients or those you interact with internally or externally. But what are these pesky personas, and do they have any relevance to our world of GIS and intelligent maps?

I’ve begun to realise they are very important.

Why do you need to understand the ArcGIS solutions pyramid?

Friday, November 4th, 2016

I’ll admit to loving brain-storming sessions. I’m a big picture person, so stepping back, pulling together and linking ‘pieces’ is an exercise I love doing. We had one of those sessions this week. Our ‘big hairy’ question: “What questions does ArcGIS help answer?”

Yep, there are a million answers to this question. And ‘the where’ is at the heart of everything. But, taking a big picture perspective, we started throwing ideas on the white board …  hazard maps, reporting on pot hole apps, offline editing, routing, listing land for sale in a story map .. the white board became covered with thoughts and ideas.

With no more space left on the white board we attempted to group each of the ideas. What emerged was fascinating.
