Blog Post created by CLoya-esristaff Employee on Apr 23, 2018

GeoNet News and Tips BlogWe are excited to introduce a series of new GeoNet Community content! On this blog post, we want to share an overview of the new content and what you can expect. Over the next few weeks, we will begin sharing Weekly How-To Tips and Community News (Monday), a general GIS GeoNet weekly discussion (Wednesday) and GeoNet member success stories (Friday). All the content will be primarily posted in the GeoNet Resource Hub and featured under the News & Tips

This week, and today, we are introducing the Monday content below which includes the first in a series of How-to tips and curated community content that is new, top or trending.

A couple quick notes about the Monday content:

  • The list is curated based on a combination of engagement metrics (views, likes, comments, etc.) so the list will vary weekly and could include members contributions such as blogs, questions (answered/unanswered), discussions, videos or polls.
  • Our goal each week is to highlight the most useful content and surface what you might have missed and, when possible, include a short explanation and context about why it's important to the community.
  • If you have any suggestions or want us to consider a post you've found useful, contact us and we'll discuss details.
  • This curated content list is an ongoing experiment and we welcome your comments and feedback on how to improve it.

We hope that this new series helps you get more out of your GeoNet experience, discover new content and be more aware of what's happening across the community. We want to evolve and improve the content so let us know what you think. Thanks for following along and we hope you enjoy these updates.
