The Science of Where. Canadian Scientists Collaborate to Map Biodiversity and the Human Footprint (Ryan Perkl, Esri)

Every year, the Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute (ABMI) sends more than 60 field technologists across the province in a massive effort to collect samples of biodiversity. They measure habitat characteristics at monitoring locations from a province wide grid of 1,656 randomly selected sites.

The Science of Where. Get the word out: Use information banners and access notices in your ArcGIS organization (Bern Szukalski, Esri)

Information banner

Clear and timely communication is important and there are easy ways for your organization to broadcast news and notices to members and visitors to your site.

Your ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Enterprise organization includes settings for access notices and information banners. Each serve different communication needs and purposes, but both provide a mechanism to deliver timely and direct information to your audience.

This tutorial details the steps you need to follow to configure information banners and access notices. Note that you must be a default administrators or have the correct privileges to configure these.

The Science of Where. How to make this map of the Rift Valley (John Nelson, Esri)

Plan Oblique map of the Great Rift Valley, in Ethiopia

Here is a map of the Great Rift Valley, in Ethiopia.

It is very much a 2D map. Sort of. Absolutely. In a sense. It uses the Plan Oblique tool, available in the glorious set of Terrain Tools for ArcGIS Pro, released by Ken Field some time back. Developed by Bernie Jenny and Bojan Šavrič, based on some beautiful hand-wrought oblique examples from mapping’s rich history, it is a wonderfully sneaky way of vertically warping elevation data so that pixels are pushed “up” commensurate with their elevation. The result is a modified elevation model (a NASA SRTM digital elevation model image, given a UTM projection) that gives the impression of looking slightly sideways at terrain. But it’s not 3D, you hear me!

The Science of Where. Track U.S. Drought Conditions with Drought Aware (Dan Pisut, Esri)

drought aware interface

The progression and intensification of drought across the U.S. has been one of the top news stories this year. Multi-year deficits in precipitation and extreme temperatures are causing widespread forest fires, record-low water levels in Lake Mead and the Colorado River, and water restrictions in many communities across the Western U.S.

Leveraging data and information made available to the GIS community from NOAA, US Dept. of Agriculture, and the US Census Bureau, Esri has released an update to its long-lived Drought Tracker application: Drought Aware.

The Science of Where. Grid Modernization Readiness (Pat Hohl, Esri)

Grid modernization is an idea that takes on classic utility challenges and new ones too. Many long-standing assumptions about generation, climate, and customers are changing. As a result, utilities are changing too.

The US Department of Energy (DOE) established its Grid Modernization Initiative in response to changes in societal values. The DOE strategy addresses sustainability, security, reliability, resilience, flexibility, and overall affordability. That last one is the real pinch point!

The Science of Where. Higher Education Student Examples of Innovative Use of ArcGIS Technology (Esri)

Rosemary Boone

One of the best parts of being on the Esri education team is having the pleasure of learning about the many innovative projects students in higher education are doing across many disciplines. Students at University of Vermont are flying drones to capture imagery to update seabird population data. At Pennsylvania State University, graduate students from the geodesign program use ArcGIS technology to design planning projects that are environmentally, economically, and socially sustainable to revitalize the city of Utica, New York. A recent University of Southern California (USC) graduate used R-ArcGIS Bridge and ArcGIS Pro to study land fallowing in Europe.

The Science of Where. Reveal: Seeing Near Real-time Changes on Earth with New AI Map (Esri)

Kimberly Hartley

With commercial space travel an out-of-reach dream for most, there’s an alternative for those wishing to look at the earth from space. With a click and a zoom, one can hover over any part of the planet and see it in detail, thanks to technological advances that show us powerful up-to-date global images via satellite imagery.
