At years end I always like to reflect. Looking back what have we learned?
I believe 2016 was a year of growing pains for geospatial. So how did those growing pains express themselves in our business, and our work with ArcGIS. That’s what we will discuss in this blog post.
ArcGIS Hits and Misses (and what we learned)
Let’s present some short case studies. I’ll use our GIS Solutions Pyramid shown below to help colour the picture so to speak of each project.
1. ArcGIS for Investment Company
Problem/Vision: The client wanted to map the location of power plants in a number of Asian countries. Initially the goal was to use web maps to help with client presentations. So visualization or the lower 2 tiers of our solutions pyramid. The client wanted help getting started.
Client GIS Expertise and Data: The client had no in-house GIS expertise. Public data was to be used as the source to build maps.
