Public transit (like buses and subways) is a vital service that connects people with their jobs, schools, healthcare, recreation, and more. Consequently, if you’re studying access to healthcare, assessing an economic development project, trying to choose a new site for … Continue reading
Public transit (like buses and subways) serves the people of a city by providing access to jobs, education, shopping, healthcare, recreation, and more. Traffic congestion, climate change, and the evolving economy and population of cities has created a greater need … Continue reading
Esri is, once again, offering the free GIS data health checks at this year’s User Conference.
In 2011, Esri provided water/wastewater customers an opportunity to see just how clean their data really is. Since then, the Data Health Checks, as they are called, have become a staple service at every User Conference and are now offered across four industries.
The Performance Engineering team at Esri is excited to release a new build of PerfQAnalyzer (PQA), build 172. This build further exposes the Workspace and FeatureClass using EditCommand script command; allowing the user to gather performance metrics for opening a database … Continue reading

We’re doing some research into how the Attribute Assistant is being used. We’d like to see what rules you are using and how you configured your dynamic value table.
This information will help us plan for the future. We want to know what are the most common rules. We also want to see your gnarly and complicated rules to see how far the Attribute Assistant is being pushed.
So please share your dynamic value table along with any comments you have in this thread on GeoNet. We appreciate your help on this effort!
PS: If you don’t know what the Attribute Assistant is (or aren’t sure if you are using it already) no worries. You can learn more about Attribute Assistant on the ArcGIS Solution site here.

Sometimes a simple idea leads to something quite fascinating. Since its publication in 2013 I was inspired by Louis Spirito’s Baseball’s Many Physical Dimensions poster. The poster shows the relationship between the 30 Major League Baseball ballparks in the USA and provides a fascinating picture of how their spatial dimensions differ. Positioning them in the same imaginary location at the same scale was a great way to juxtapose each ballpark and create something visually interesting and informative. So how might this approach work for other sports? How, for instance, might it work for football (a.k.a. soccer) where the pitch markings at first glance appear consistent with one another?
Despite the apparent regularity of the markings on a football pitch they do in fact differ considerably in overall size because pitch length and width can vary within certain minimum and maximum dimensions. Then there’s the orientation as pitches can align to any point on the compass. The question, then, was…what happens if you map the 92 pitches of English and Welsh professional football clubs accurately and then overlay them? Would it create something interesting? Would most pitches be the same size? Would they overlay neatly or not? The result proved fascinating and the way in which the eventual map produced used remarkably simple techniques in ArcGIS for Desktop. Continue reading
