The World Water Online (WWO) group in the ArcGIS Resource Center has 12 new web map applications based on the SSURGO soil survey database. These apps show soil characteristics that are useful for hydrologic modeling, such as drainage class, available water storage, water table depth, and ponding frequency. The hydrologic group code, which classifies soils based on infiltration rate, can be used to calculate curve number and model how much rain falling in an area will become runoff.
In his recent blog entry Adding tile layers to your web map, Chris Whitmore explained how the March 2013 enhancement to ArcGIS Online supported the addition of a range of new file types to web maps. Chris described the approach of adding tile layers to web maps which allows you to use web-accessible map tiles from a server directly using a URL request from the browser. In this blog entry I show you how this approach can be used to integrate Stamen and MapBox tilesets in your ArcGIS Online web maps.

The proliferation of mobile, social and sensor data has given us a new playground for analysis and visualization. It is an area we’ve beenparticularlyexcited about from our earliest experiments with streaming data. Since joining ESRI we’ve had the opportunity to focus on these emerging data sources, and integrate them into the larger concept of Real Time GIS. Baking our ideas into this broader framework gave us the opportunity to fully move past Tweets on a map. Continue reading
