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.

The Science of Where. IoT and GIS—Creating the Nervous System for Digital Twins (Esri)

Four steps to managing the information life cycle of the digital twin

Matt Piper

Our world is transforming and rapidly becoming digital. Today, we are on the cusp of an Internet of Things (IoT)-driven technological revolution, affecting most, if not all, industries. With billions of connected sensors deployed on assets and networks and in products around the world, companies are collecting and processing data at a higher frequency and velocity. The challenge that continues to plague many organizations is how to make effective decisions from this data. Organizations are facing many new challenges and looking toward technology to improve situational awareness, create operational efficiencies, and optimize all aspects of work.

The Science of Where. Mapping Out a New Book (Esri)

Cover of Thematic Mapping: 101 inspiring ways to visualise empirical data

Kenneth Field

Every map is a product of its maker and its reader, and maps are rarely right or wrong but simply different versions of the truth. The meaning you see in a map can reinforce or challenge your understanding of the theme it represents, and you are much more likely to believe a map if it presents a version of the truth that you believe in already. But how do you decide what map you want to make? How do you understand the way in which different maps can be used in different ways to tell a story? How do you design a map to be read in a particular way? My new book Thematic Mapping: 101 Inspiring Ways to Visualise Empirical Data answers these questions, and more. In this blog I’ll explain more about the book, and tease a few of the spreads.

The Science of Where. Expediting Water Relief for the Navajo Nation (Esri)

Anne Taylor

In April 2020, as the magnitude of the coronavirus pandemic and its impact were becoming readily apparent, Commander Ryan Clapp, a staff engineer with the Indian Health Service (IHS), flew to Albuquerque. Upon arrival he bought eight pay-as-you-go cell phones from a retail store and loaded data collection apps on them. Within 48 hours he had a team of Navajo Area IHS technicians spread out to map water access points on the Navajo Nation using the mobile devices.

The Science of Where. Use webhooks to automate workflows in ArcGIS Field Maps with Power Automate (Esri)

Aaron Pulver

Would you like to be notified when a mobile worker completes an inspection? How about an automatic report that’s generated after new data is collected or updated in the field? You can automate both of these tasks with the help of webhooks.

In this article we’ll introduce key concepts and then guide you through the ins and outs of configuring a webhook that works with ArcGIS Field Maps and Microsoft Power Automate to improve and automate key workflows.
