Reduced Risk Building Wind and Solar Energy Plants | ArcNews | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

Mainstream Renewable Power develops large-scale wind and solar farms on behalf of, or in partnership with, large corporations, major utilities, and institutional investors. Headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, the organization operates from 11 offices in eight countries across Europe, North America, and Africa.

 

Designing, locating, and building wind and solar energy plants is a highly complex business fraught with risk. Hundreds of factors have to be considered in determining the best locations for new facilities, and planning applications can take years to reach a successful outcome. Construction processes are highly complicated, involving many different specialist organizations. Mainstream wanted to find a better way to manage this complexity and minimize project risk.

The ArcGIS Online map viewer can be used to share maps with a wider audience, but it may not be the ideal choice if that’s your intended goal. The map viewer is designed to enable users to author, save, and share web maps, and also delivers access to tools for editing and performing analysis. If all you want to do is present your maps for viewing,

 

and especially if  your target audience is decision makers in your organization or the public, there are better options to choose from.

Here’s a few easy-to-use templates that provide basic capabilities and make great alternatives to the map viewer when basic capabilities are what you need.

Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning and GIS | GIS Education Community

Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning and GIS | GIS Education Community | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

In their wonderful book about the science of successful learning, Make It Stick, Peter Brown, Henry Roediger, and Mark McDaniel spell out some truths that I believe are instructive as to how we should approach teaching with GIS.

 

First, the authors claim that ”learning is deeper and more durable when it’s effortful. Learning that’s easy is like writing in sand, here today and gone tomorrow.”   Despite the fact that teaching and learning with GIS is far easier than it was a decade ago, I think we as educators do a disservice to our colleagues in education or to students when we say, “it’s easy.”  First of all, teaching and learning are difficult tasks–neither is for the fainthearted.  Second, think of everything that goes into teaching with GIS–a balance between content knowledge, skills, and the geographic perspective.  Yes, it may be easier technically to bring in a CSV file into ArcGIS Online than it was to bring in a spreadsheet into ArcInfo back in the 1990s, but even this skill relies on some key foundations.  A few of these are:  What is a database and how can I create one?  How can locations be mapped?  How can I work with latitude and longitude pairs, or street addresses? What are the pros and cons of choosing a certain map projection over another?

Building the Most Detailed Population Map in the World | Esri Insider | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

Esri is compiling a human geography database of demographics and statistics about all countries in the world and mapping this data using an innovative methodology.

 

Sociodemographic data is a valuable asset for businesses, governments, and society. Describing and understanding the human geography of the world requires tools to assimilate data in a statistically valid way that will allow for meaningful decision making.

Traditionally, people are counted in a census. But a census is time-consuming, costly, and does not collect the types of statistics at the level required to address today’s complex societal issues.

ArcWatch | A Solution that Made Sense | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

Officials in Seminole County, Florida, wanted to use maps to show voters how the revenue raised from a proposed one-penny sales tax increase would be spent if the tax hike received the green light. So several weeks before the tax referendum, Seminole County GIS used Esri ArcGIS to deploy online informational maps that showed which projects would be completed with the money from the one-cent infrastructure tax.

 

The county's Proposed Projects Map displays the locations of and information about proposed capital improvement projects (CIPs) for infrastructure such as transportation, trails, and schools. It shows where upgrades would be made, including replacing school roofs and expanding classrooms and other school facilities, improving roadways, building and upgrading trails, replacing and repairing bridges and sidewalks, installing curbs and gutters, and improving water quality. Information about each project is in a pop-up window. The map also has an address search box and a simple legend.

Mapping the Future with Big Data | World Future Society

Mapping the Future with Big Data | World Future Society | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
By Patrick TuckerA little-known California company called Esri offers a “Facebook for Maps” that promises to change the way we interact with our environment, predict behavior, and make decisions in the decades ahead.

 

The setting is central California’s Yosemite National Park. A hiker, let’s call him Steve Clark, has gone missing on one of the trails. As the head park ranger, your job is to lead a search-and-rescue mission to find him. All you have to go on is the point where he was last seen, your training, and a computer; from this, you have to predict the behavior of a lost hiker. Sunset is approaching, and in some parts of the park the temperature will be below freezing in a matter of hours. What do you do?

 

Many experienced hikers know that the recommended course of action when lost is to follow a stream downhill and this will eventually lead to civilization. But you can’t assume that Steve Clark is aware of this, or that he’s even seen the Discovery Channel. He might elect to stay put, or, if he has a cell phone, he might be movinguphill to find a signal. You also don’t know if he’s injured. A person with a sprained ankle is less likely to walk up, but he may not move down, either.

Unlocking the Full Potential of GIS across Your Organization

Most of us using GIS take advantage of only a fraction of the capabilities, and over time we get comfortable in what we know and do.  While this allows us to improve our work and optimize our processes, it also limits our impact across the organization.  But expanding the scope of your GIS is a lot of work.  At least it used to be.

 

Enter ArcGIS Solutions.  Now you don’t need to dedicate significant resources and learn new areas from the ground up.  We are committed to providing you easy to use apps, maps, and platform configurations to base your work on.

Speaking the “Language” of Spatial Analysis via Story Maps | Esri Insider

Speaking the “Language” of Spatial Analysis via Story Maps | Esri Insider | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it

by Dawn Wright on September 15, 2014


Spatial analysis has always been a hallmark of GIS, the “numerical recipes” which set GIS apart from other forms of computerized visualization and information management. With GIS we pose questions and derive results using a wide array of analytical tools to help us understand and compare places, determine how places are related, find the best locations and paths, detect and quantify patterns, and even to make spatial predictions.

 

As Chris Cappelli duly notes: “The greatest potential for change and success occurs when we all understand and speak the same language—the language of spatial analysis.” And what better way to speak that language than by way of a story map? As people continue to explore and share their world using the medium of story maps, some are venturing beyond the simple map tour mode of points linked to photographs, toward “stories” that examine, explore, and showcase the results of a spatial analysis. We’ll likely see more of these analytical stories as the story map medium is introduced into more GIS courses, particularly at the university level.


Here is small catalog of analytical story maps. Please come visit again as I will try to add to this page throughout the year!

Evidence of increasing drought severity caused by temperature rise in southern Europe - IOPscience

Evidence of increasing drought severity caused by temperature rise in southern Europe - IOPscience | Everything is related to everything else | Scoop.it
We use high quality climate data from ground meteorological stations in the Iberian Peninsula (IP) and robust drought indices to confirm that drought severity has increased in the past five decades, as a consequence of greater atmospheric evaporative demand resulting from temperature rise. Increased drought severity is independent of the model used to quantify the reference evapotranspiration. We have also focused on drought impacts to drought-sensitive systems, such as river discharge, by analyzing streamflow data for 287 rivers in the IP, and found that hydrological drought frequency and severity have also increased in the past five decades in natural, regulated and highly regulated basins. Recent positive trend in the atmospheric water demand has had a direct influence on the temporal evolution of streamflows, clearly identified during the warm season, in which higher evapotranspiration rates are recorded. This pattern of increase in evaporative demand and greater drought severity is probably applicable to other semiarid regions of the world, including other Mediterranean areas, the Sahel, southern Australia and South Africa, and can be expected to increasingly compromise water supplies and cause political, social and economic tensions among regions in the near future.
