Weekliii Round-Up: Transmission Projects and Geospatial Imagery Outlook
Bring a little energy into your day. Join us in reading up on the energy-, utilities-, and technology-centric posts we have shared with you throughout this last week on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Aren't following us there? Well, join along...but not until you have seen what we have to offer below. Enjoy!
It is no secret that the industries and businesses that help bring us power and water are constantly changing - changing in the way they do things, the technology they use, and even the regulations they must uphold. This is for any number of reasons, including the introduction of new workflows and even spikes in public interest. This is no different for the energy sectory where the planning and construction of transmission lines has become increasingly difficult as it must adhere to state and national regulations and much more. Explore these challenges - and how they differ from those we often face in the Oil and Gas industry - in this week's #DailyBrainCandiii post.
As companies move to embrace Esri's newest Geographic Information System (GIS) software, they need a way to better manage the spatial data and projects that will become integral in the process. We have a solution, and we want to share it with you. Find out more about going Pro in this week's #MeetTheProduct post.
Since we have made it nearly one-third the way through 2018 - seriously, where has the time gone? - we want to explore the outlook of global energy from the last year. Check out the 2017 World Energy Outlook with us. How has this system changed in just the last four months? What new changes have you seen so far that may just make an impact months down the line when we look at shifts in the global energy system of 2018?
We have said it here before, and we will continue to shout it from the rooftops - The Geographic Information System (GIS) field is one that will continue to grow as the industries in which it is utilized (everything from geomatics to emergency management) continue to embrace its technology and advancement. It looks as if market predictions are beginning to see something similar on the horizon. Let's take a look at this research that states the imagery side of the field - you know, the side with those awesome unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and drones - will help to continue to push the field into a multi-billion market in the next five years.
