The Science of Where. Creating Competitive Advantage with Location-Aware Processes (Esri)

Gary Sankary

I had a chance to review the latest research from Retail Systems Research (RSR) looking at how consumer-facing companies, specifically retailers, are thinking about location-based technology and location centric data. This is the third year that RSR has conducted research into how companies are using location intelligence and how they perceive the value of this technology. This was an especially poignant time to conduct a study like this, coming on the heels of profound changes in consumer behaviors as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Converting a CSV with photos to a layer with attachments (Esri)

Lydia Troup, Ian Wittenmyer

There is an incredible amount of data out there that’s stored in CSVs with images stored as links. Currently, there is no simple way to create a layer from a CSV and mass download and attach the linked images to it. Why would you want to do this? The Attachment Viewer Instant App is a beautiful way to display images while still viewing the geospatial data but can only be used for layers with attachments.

Enabling Real-Time Information: Bridging the Dark Data Gap (Esri)

Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD) visualizes real-time data from its OSIsoft PI data historian, Telog data logger fleet, and ArcGIS

Christa Campbell

In our increasingly digital world, utilities have greater access to real-time information on the operating conditions, performance, and health of their infrastructure. This enables more efficient operations and better-informed planning decisions, more proactive response to network events, and more preventive or predictive maintenance of critical assets. Data can come from a wide range of sources—field applications, SCADA platforms, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, automatic vehicle location (AVL) systems, weather forecasts, and social media. This large amount of data can be overwhelming, quickly becoming dark data—data that is gathered and stored, often in departmental silos, but not used in any meaningful way.

Hearing The Police ‘Would Come Soon,’ This Couple Fled Belarus. Will They Ever Return? (RFE/RL)

Tony Wesolowsky

Alyaksey and Maryya Dalbenka cast their votes for Svyatlana Tsikhanouskaya in the Belarusian presidential election at a polling station in Minsk on August 9, 2020, and then headed for their cottage in the countryside cautiously optimistic.

Alyaksandr Lukashenka had been accused of falsifying all elections in Belarus since coming to power in 1994, but the Dalbenkas were hopeful things would be different this time.

What Comes Next? A Lesson from Saigon (Defense One)

Michael Desch

An iconic photograph from the waning days of the Vietnam war now seems likely to be recreated in Kabul. In it, an Air America helicopter lands on the roof of a U.S. Central Intelligence Agency building across town from the U.S. Embassy. A CIA officer guides a long line of Vietnamese up a ladder and into the chopper, their last hope of escape from the North Vietnamese and their Viet Cong allies as they tighten their grip on what will soon be rechristened Ho Chi Minh City.

The Pentagon Must Prep Now for the Next Pandemic (Defense One)

Lt. Col. Adam Scher

The COVID-19 pandemic is a national-security threat that requires both a domestic and global effort to confront: it has disrupted military operations at all levels and left more than 621,000 people dead in America alone. The U.S. military has proved invaluable in the fight, which is far from over. But it is not too early to begin thinking about how we can better prepare the military to handle a next pandemic.
