The Science of Where. Analyzing Unstructured Text With ArcGIS Pro Intelligence and ArcGIS LocateXT James Jones, Avonlea Fotheringham, Esri)

Create Locations From Text File with parameters filled in

One of the really powerful things that you can do with ArcGIS Pro Intelligence and ArcGIS LocateXT is respond to rapidly changing situations, conduct meaningful analysis, and build relevant information products for key decision makers in your organizations. Sometimes this can entail using unstructured text-based data, which can come from a wide variety of sources, including web pages, Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, text files, PDFs, and a whole host of other formats.

ArcGIS LocateXT makes it easier to extract useful information from that unstructured text within ArcGIS Pro Intelligence. In this article, we’ll explore a workflow that uses this two tools to help analyze the rise and fall of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

The Science of Where. Improvements to the USA Wildfires map’s Smoke Forecast (John Nelson, Jinnan Zhang, Esri)

Perhaps as important as fire to the USA Wildfires map is the smoke forecast layer. Fire is a punctuated risk, but the resulting smoke is a far-flung and pervasive risk. The National Weather Service smoke forecast layer is a helpful resource for understanding the current, and projected, concentrations of airborne particulates. Recent improvements to this live feed’s interface have made it more intuitive.

The Science of Where. Dangermond Fellows Making a Difference in Our World (Raquel Perez, Esri)

Each year, the Jack and Laura Dangermond Fellows at the National Audubon Society receive hands-on training and mentorship that helps them advance their careers and leadership in conservation science, public policy, community engagement and digital mapping. As part of the enterprise GIS team at Audubon, they build tools that empower conservation scientists and policy experts to advocate for solutions that empower the vast Audubon network to both meet human needs and protect birds and habitats. With the support and guidance of mentors and leadership and available resources at Esri and Audubon, Dangermond fellows improve their technical applied knowledge of GIS and strengthen their communications skills, learning to apply their research to tell actionable and compelling stories.

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.
