Searching spatial data doesn't have to be stressful. We all know that feeling when you're hunting down a file - whether it be a layer, ArcGIS Map Document, or feature class - only discover it is not where you thought. Rather than spend the man hours, energy, and bottomless cups of coffee to find it just to lose it once more, why not inventory your enterprise network so that you can go back and search for it later? Yeah, we can't think of an excuse not to either. Learn more about automating this process in our latest newsletter, now online.
It is the season of software releases, and we just can't get enough. Tableau, the company behind the impressive data visualization software of the same name, recently released its latest version - 10.5. This release includes features like the introduction of Hyper, Tableau's new in-memory data engine technology, as well as compatibiliy with the Linux operating system. Also a bonus for GIS and mapping folks? This version ups the software's game when it comes to including and visualizing spatial data. More information about this launch can be found on the company's website.
