On the weekend of August 1st, the Esri summer interns came together to participate in a hackathon hosted in the Esri café. The weekend was designed to encourage innovation through the rapid creation of applications; the event was extremely successful. One of most interesting aspects of the hackathon was watching the diversity within each team harmonize to improve the overall quality of the final products. Each team included at least one developer to write the code and several other members from Marketing, Support Services, Professional Services, and other Esri departments to help with creative design, the use of GIS, and the delivery of the final presentation.

GeoRSS is a standard way of tagging an RSS feed so that applications can use embedded location information in each post. Using the GeoEvent Extension for ArcGIS Server, you can monitor a GeoRSS feed in real time and use it to update the applications and common operational pictures used by your colleagues. Should you encounter a secured GeoRSS feed that you would like to use, there is no standard connector that allows you to pass credentials. However, it is possible to configure a connector (without programming) that will allow you to access a GeoRSS service secured with basic HTTP authentication.

This blog post reviews settings options in the Export wizard to help you render CityEngine models in third-party software.
