Full disclosure, my son works for this company! They are developing a new product for hydrologists that might need extra compute power for their computations and analysis. If you work in government, anywhere in the US, and work on contracts with engineering firms that specialize in hydrology projects, they would really like to talk with you. Read on below and thanks! -mike
We are looking to talk with people who work in city or county level government who are involved with issuing the calls/contracts to carry out stormwater risk assessment and analysis. We are working closely with civil engineering firms to carry out flooding simulations due to weather conditions or dam breaches. Some of the issued contracts come under the names of:
- Dam safety studies
- Flood/inundation mapping/remapping
- Whole watershed mapping study
- City master plans
I would love to talk to people who are involved in these studies.

The California Geographic Information Association (CGIA) kicks off 2020 with a brown bag speaker series that explores the role GIS plays in various types of organizations, how it is helping to achieve success, and why it should be a part of any strategic plan.
Join CGIA in this first webinar for a general member meeting to learn more about what CGIA is doing to promote GIS in California. We will also hear from Tamar Foster, Deputy Executive Director of the Little Hoover Commission about the findings of their recent report, “Mapping a Strategy for GIS.”
The webinar will be held Tuesday, March 3, 2020, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm, PST. Click here for more info and to RSVP.
Are you a K-12 educator? Join the ESRI Education Team as they discuss creating student research projects with Survey123, ArcGIS Online, and Story Maps. Hear from educators and gather new ideas for springtime outdoor work with students and GIS tools. The webinar is on March 26th from 5-6pm. Sign up for the webinar here!
ArcGIS 10.8 has been released and is now available for download from your account on my.esri.com. For what’s new in ArcMap and ArcCatalog, click here. For what’s new in ArcGIS Enterprise, click here.
The Geospatial Historian is “a tutorial-based open access textbook for historical scholars and digital humanists designed to teach practical digital mapping and GIS skills that are immediately useful to real research needs.” Under Lessons, you will find two series of GIS tutorials geared towards historical analysis and applications. The first series, which uses open-source software, is comprised of four lessons that the project team created for the Programming Historian. The second series contains five lessons that teach mapping, georeferencing, and other applications using ArcGIS. The site also offers a helpful list of resources for Finding Spatial Data, organized by data type and featuring data from around the world. Check it out!

OpenTopography provides high-quality geographic data relating to earth science as well as a platform for researchers to share their own data. Based at the University of California, San Diego, OpenTopography is an ambitious project that “facilitates community access to high-resolution, Earth science-oriented, topography data, and related tools and resources,” and is funded through the National Science Foundation.
You can search or browse the project’s datasets via an interactive data map and a data catalog, both found under Data. Most of these datasets are available in Lidar point cloud format, and many are also available in other formats, such as raster or Google Earth. Check it out!
