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.

Jump-start your conference a day early by joining us for the 20th annual pre-conference Water Resources Workshop on Sunday July 7th. The Water Resources Workshop is a FREE, full day workshop focused on emerging trends in the integration of GIS and Water Resources and how you can use them in your work.
The March 2013 release of ArcGIS Online included a new Web App Template called the Parcel Viewer. This app allows you to search for a parcel by a number of fields, select a result and show it’s location on the map with a popup. The web app template exposes a series of parameters that allow you to change the search layer, the fields to be searched, and the UI of the application. By changing these parameters, you can configure the app to search any feature service layer you include in the webmap. So we can now use this to find a hydrant, find a valve, find a customer, etc. The possibilities are endless. Here is an example of the app configured to find a hydrant.
If you want to try this out yourself, here is a blog from the Local Government team that walks you through setting up the app.
The 2013 Esri Partner Conference and Developer Summit is later this month and we wanted to take a minute to highlight several sessions for those interested in learning more about ArcGIS for Local Government and the maps and apps available … Continue reading
