GIS Day was capped for me by the release of the November ArcWatch. It's my favorite Esri publication and a must read for everyone. It's great way to make your "GIS Day" happen more than once a year by staying up to date with community and product news, tips, videos, and more.
On August 4, 2020, a massive explosion gutted buildings and crumbled neighborhoods surrounding the port of Beirut, Lebanon, after a warehouse containing 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate ignited. Maxar published imagery post-blast, and a swipe app was created to view before and after.
Unlike other Esri products, ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World is truly many moving parts continuously updating independently on their own schedule. Living Atlas News is an attempt to capture what's been going on. Check it out here: ArcGIS Living Atlas News (July 2020).
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently announced that Bigfork (Montana) High School students Colten Wroble and Ryan Cantrell are recipients of the 2020 President’s Environmental Youth Award. The students were recognized on Earth Day for developing a website, www.eBatsMT.com, as members of the Bigfork High School Cave Club, which helps cavers collect information on bat populations.
ArcGIS Enterprise includes a locally installed collection ofLiving Atlas itemswhich you can search and use when authoring web maps and apps. However, some of the recently added COVID-19 content that has been added to ArcGIS Living Atlas of The World will not be discoverable in the currently installed items. The reason is that these have come online recently, and therefore were not part of the Enterprise Living Atlas collection as last updated.
However, all Living Atlas content is discoverable via searching ArcGIS Online when authoring maps using the Enterprise Map Viewer. The key to finding this content is to discover them using an ArcGIS Online layer search.
