If you are like many of us, the extent of your expertise about soil is limited to how to get it out of your child’s clothing. Why not take a minute to think about how important soils are to life on this planet? When we close our eyes and think of living things in our environment, what we know about life is primarily learned from our experience on or above the surface of the earth. Consider this — soil, when healthy, teems with an immense community of living organisms. One estimate is that a hectare of soil supports about 20,000 kilograms of living things, which is approximately equal to the weight of 40 horses! (There is about 20 times this amount of non-living organic matter in the same volume of soil.) Although these living organisms make up only about 5% of soil organic matter, they are vital to many soil processes. Continue reading
The ArcGIS Explorer Team is pleased to announce that ArcGIS Explorer 480 has been released.
If the ESRI servers are your home servers, you’ll be notified that there is a new version available the next time you start the application. Just follow the instructions to download and install this new release.
For those that deploy Explorer from your own home servers, you’ll need to swap your versions and update your version.html file to push out the new release to your users. With this release we’ve reorganized the home server folder structure. Please refer to the Migrating from a previous version of ArcGIS Explorer Home Server documentation included in the new ArcGIS Home Server Help.
This release has lots of new features, check out the What’s New in ArcGIS Explorer 480 document for a detailed list of all the new features and enhancements. At the top of our list are improved performance, E-mail capabilities, support for GeoRSS feeds and enterprise geodatabases (ArcSDE), improved dashboarding, GPX file import, and there’s a lot more. We’ll be covering these in more detail here on the blog.
Feel free to send us your feedback, and let us know what you think. We’ll also be monitoring the Explorer discussion forum to help you with any questions that you may have.

Many of us have been anxiously waiting for this book to be re-released for quite some time as Cartographic Relief Presentation is a very hard book to find – you can only rarely find a copy for sale and it has a habit of being stolen off library shelves. If you do find it for sale, it is usually at an asking price of over $300, and if you don’t read German, you have to hope that you are lucky enough to find a copy of the English translation. (The original 1965 German language version, Kartographische Geländedarstellung, was translated into English in 1982 but with only a limited press run.) The great news is that you can now get a copy of your own because Esri Press has re-published the English version. Continue reading
