This week is a time for reflection and making plans to be our best selves - both in and out of the office. In honor of that, snag a peek at our #WeekliiiRoundUp featuring posts on Geographic Information System (GIS) tutorials, industry outlooks, and more below.
New Year's Resolutions are the most essential thing to the new year next to fireworks and champagne. Why not include these goals in your career and geo-education as well? We've put together a few suggestions for the average and above average GIS users to consider tackling in 2018. From GeoMentoring to comfort zones, it's all up on our blog.
Straight from Esri's ArcGIS Blog comes a few tutorials to get you up and running in the new year. By taking a look back at many of the things the ArcGIS community has accomplished with this software over the last year, the author has included some heavy hitters to get you started building crazy paper maps, replicating the ArcGIS Map Book's most intricate maps, and more in ArcGIS Pro. Check out which ones made the cut in their post on the blog.
While most of our posts this week have centered around reflecting on 2017 and pushing forward through 2018, let us introduce a capability we hope you will consider including in your workflows - and resolutions - in the coming year. Spatial does not have to be limited to just feature classes and raster datasets. We can apply the same concept we know and love with these file formats to other, less assuming formats - like PDFs and Microsoft Word documents. Don't believe me? Find out more about geotagging non-spatial data up on our blog.
The field of GIS has evolved much just in the last year. From the software that's employed to the applications of geospatial technology ranging new industries, it's safe to say the coming months should show favorable growth. What do those in the industry have to say about this? Find out what GIS influencers are seeing on the horizon for the geospatial realm.
