Weekliii Round-Up: News on ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6.1 and GIS Pipeline Integrity Applications
We have been sharing news and stories throughout this week - including a new pipeline-heavy blog series to boot! - and we want to make sure you don't miss out. It is time to take that much needed break, and catch our latest round-up below!
What's New in ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6.1
Esri recently launched its latest iteration of ArcGIS Enterprise, coming in at the 10.6.1 mark. With new and enhanced features - ArcGIS Enterprise Sites, anyone? - there seems to be a lot of fun stuff for users to get into these days. Learn more about what's included from the ArcGIS Blog.
Better Administering Integrity Management Programs with Geographic Information System (GIS) Technology
Earlier this month, we started a new blog series centered around Effectively Managing Pipeline Regulatory Requirements with Geographic Information System (GIS) technology. In truth, the leaps and bounds that can be made with these resources are endless - seriously, we are still finding new ways to apply it! In the latest post of the series, we explore applying GIS to making the workflows and tasks involved in Pipeline Integrity Management (PIM) programs - including subsequent dig programs - easier for companies and stakeholders alike.

The Texas Well That Started the Fracking Revolution
Every innovation has its beginning - even modern-day fracking. Twenty years ago, an engineer desperate to keep his job and lucky enough to gain approval for his "slick-water frack" experiment accomplished the first step in the fracking revolution.
He spearheaded the first commercially successful use of sand, water, and chemicals pumped into the shale under high pressure to break open rock and unleash trapped Natural Gas reserves.
Learn more about his story and how this one test has shaped the Natural Gas and Oil industries as we know in it in our latest #DailyBrainCandiii post of the week.
#DailyBrainCandiii and #WeekliiiRoundUp are inspired by brain candiii, a division of Integrated Informatics that develops Geographic Information System (GIS) training for Energy and Natural Resources professionals.
