Weekliii Round-Up: Cross-Platform Data Viz and Geothermal Introductions
In this week's catch-all of compelling reads, we are introducing new concepts in data visualization - like having your cake and eating it too - as well as discussing upcoming industries in the natural resources game and much more. Sit back, relax, and read on...
Data visualization is a key component in the field of GIS even if it might not be immediately recognized. From viewing data in charts for reporting or on a map for location-based analysis, it is a concept we do time and again to get the most out of the information available. To do this, many businesses have their software of choice. Two of those biggest pieces are the ArcGIS platform and Tableau. For those who employ both solutions, there are ways to seemless move data back and forth. Want to find out how? Check out this post on the latest mapping functionalities in each and how to align files so they are compatible with each.
Alberta's strengths in Oil and Gas make Geothermal a strong possibility. Like Oil and Gas, Geothermal energy requires the drilling of wells to extract a natural resource. With the region's competence in natural resources already, what is the hold off? Learn more about the challenges and hurdles Alberta must tackle before this type of energy becomes a viable resource for its economy and industries.
This month saw the latest release of Esri's ArcGIS Pro, and with that, come a number of changes to keep an eye out for. For a look at what is on the horizon for ArcGIS Pro and its SDK, check out this post via Esri Blog.
The industrial Internet of Things harnesses the power of Big Data to improve efficiencies, particularly in asset-intensive industries such as Oil and Gas. As more and more machinery becomes loaded up with sensors and connected to the internet, there are predictions that the IoT could slash costs. What does this mean for the industry and what are the steps necessary to get to this stage? Find out more here.
