Weekliii Round-Up: GIS Day and Big Data Misconceptions
After bringing your newsfeed - whether it has been Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, or Instagram - a variety of articles this week, we wanted to round up all those posts we have loved and celebrated over the last few days. From GIS Day to new opportunities, we hope you enjoy.
This week the GIS community celebrated GIS Day, a day set aside each year for those professionals in the industry to spur the educations and celebration of Geographic Information System (GIS) technology and application across industry. We have outlined a few ways to make the most of the day - including events, ways to collaborate with peers, and even ways to give back to the community. Learn more here.
Like any buzzworthy topic of conversation, there may be half-truths (or entire falsehoods) floating around. Big Data is no stranger to that. Misconceptions created by lack of understanding of the founding principles of this concept or even the way it may be applied in one's own organization can cause confusion to one of the biggest (pardon the pun) resources we know for garnering information and insights. Find out more about what some of these misconceptions may be in this week's #DailyBrainCandiii.
Fossil fuel major Royal Dutch Shell has announced plans to limit leaks of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, across its Oil and Gas operations as it tries to sharply curb carbon emissions. Find out more in this week's #DailyBrainCandiii.
#DailyBrainCandiii and #WeekliiiRoundUp are inspired by brain candiii, a division of Integrated Informatics that delivers and develops GIS training courses to meet the needs of Energy and Natural Resources professionals.
