If you are an electric/gas user and missed signing up for a GIS data health check at the UC 2012, you’ll be glad to hear that Esri is offering this at the Electric and Gas GIS Conference in Salt Lake City, Oct 7-10. A GIS data health check session is where an Esri electric/gas industry expert will review and analyze a geographic subset of your data (features and attributes) by running a number of data validation checks using the ArcGIS Data Reviewer extension for data quality management. Any findings will be shared with you along with reports showing percent accuracy. The health checks will be conducted in the Esri exhibit area during the times when the showcase is open. To schedule an appointment, e-mail email@example.com with your name, organization, contact information, which dataset you are bringing (electric, gas, or both), and a preferred date and time.
On Wednesday September 19th, Apple will release a new version of their mobile operating system (iOS 6.0) ahead of launching new iPhone 5 devices. In certifying the final release seed of iOS 6.0 we have uncovered several problems with the existing ArcGIS application.
If your organization is currently using the ArcGIS application on iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch devices we encourage you to wait until we update to the ArcGIS application before upgrading devices to iOS 6. We are finalizing our changes now and anticipate submitting to Apple’s App Store shortly. Once approved you will receive an update notification on your device and we will send out notification with another blog post.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

ArcGIS for Windows Mobile 3.0 opens the door to exciting new opportunities for you to leverage Mobile GIS and streamline your field operational needs. The ArcGIS application, available on rugged handheld devices, is being used today for mapping assets with precision and ease.
With the 3.0 release we have augmented the ArcGIS application with a new task that can be used to map underground assets. Using the Underground Collection Task you can connect your mobile device to a RadioDetection RD8000 Line Locator and accurately map the location and depth of buried pipe and cable.
At the UC this year, we are conducting free data health checks again! A GIS data health check is a 45-minute review and analysis of your data by Esri experts in water/wastewater/stormwater, electric & gas, and land records data management. We will use Esri’s data quality management extension ArcGIS Data Reviewer to run diagnostics and help you evaluate overall quality based on business rules specific to your industry. For the land records data health checks, if you maintain parcel data, we will also be able to assess your data’s readiness for migration to the parcel fabric. To schedule an appointment, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, organization, contact information, what dataset you are bringing, and preferred date and time. Please bring your data in file or personal geodatabases only!
This Resource Center is getting a facelift and a fresh new look. We’re updating the color and styling of the website, adding tutorials for you to try ArcGIS, improving the gallery and video experiences, and much more.
We’ve been testing the website improvements as part of ArcGIS 10.1 Beta and Prerelease and now, in conjunction with its release, we’re ready to share the website improvements with everyone.
Click here to preview what’s coming. Then, on the evening of 6/12/12, the improvements will be applied to this website: http://resources.arcgis.com. All your bookmarks and page share will continue to work; some pages will just look a little different, and there will be lots of great new content.
Have you ever wanted to add live weather, recent earthquakes, or perhaps current fire locations to your applications without writing any code? Many of the projects we address in Esri Technical Marketing have this very requirement.
We tackled this challenge by using what we call the Aggregated Live Feed methodology. This process downloads data from live sources such as NOAA and the USGS and aggregates it into a geodatabase, which is then served through ArcGIS Server as map services. You can see some of these feeds in action by visiting any of the ‘latest incident maps’ on the Esri Disaster Response site.
Recently we’ve developed a much simpler approach called ALF-Lite that doesn’t require specialized knowledge of the enterprise geodatabase or third-party components. This methodology can be deployed to any large or small environment that supports Esri’s ArcPy site package. Continue reading
