Here is a map of over one hundred years of 6+ mag earthquakes. Together they trace out the Pacific Ring of Fire. With a name that cool, we need a map style to keep pace. This style is used to … Continue reading
WHAT Are you prepared to build map legends in a manner keeping with traditional tools and free-range ingredients? Like with locally sourced PNGs and sustainable linear gradient fills? If you’ve never constructed a fine bespoke legend in ArcGIS Pro before, … Continue reading
“Where is the restaurant located?” In answer to that question, my friend pulled up a map on his cell phone to direct me there. Watching this, I marveled at how important mapmaking is to humans and human history. From ancient … Continue reading
From suggesting how many steps we should walk in a day, to predicting the future price of our home, machine learning (ML) is becoming an integral part of our lives. ML is a new approach to understanding our universe based … Continue reading
Here’s a run-down of all the general steps required to cook up this map, which happens to show the relative burden of home ownership: It was created for this story map, of the same name: In it, I map the … Continue reading

Remote telecom network engineering is all about reducing the number of engineering field visits by bringing the field to the engineer. This can reduce costs, improve designs, and accelerate time-to-market. One of the most crucial pieces to remote engineering is geographic data. In order to bring the field to the engineer, the engineer needs to have as much data and intelligence about the field as possible in order to make a calculated decision. This data might include existing or potential asset locations, like poles and power supplies, or it might be high quality aerial imagery and LiDAR data. All of these geographic datasets that help create a Digital Twin of the real world can be collected, stored, and made available to your engineers through ArcGIS.
Here is a ridiculous walking distance map of Seattle. The geography of areas accessible via a 1, 2, and 3 hour stroll are warped into concentric rings. While it looks like an ice cream cone on a hot day, its … Continue reading
