Episode 7: Census and Sensibility

Season 1 | Episode 7: Census and Sensibility

We come to our census as we talk data updates with Environics Analytics then we learn how to improve collaboration with ArcGIS Enterprise extensions. 


What's Making Us Mappy [03:40]  

Our hosts share one cool thing that is catching their eye in the world of ArcGIS. 

First, Maggie gives us the inside scoop on a forthcoming feature in ArcGIS Pro 3.2: auto-apply symbology. This minor yet highly efficient improvement simplifies the process of setting up your visual narratives. Keep in mind that ArcGIS Pro 3.2 is currently in beta, so to explore this feature and others, consider joining the Esri Early Adopter Community.  

Next up, Mark sheds light on one of the latest ArcGIS Instant Apps, Atlas. This app allows you to showcase your content and enables users to discover, view, and explore carefully curated maps and layers. Atlas is currently in beta, but you don’t need to wait to give it a try within your ArcGIS Online organization. 

Finally, our special guest, Michelle, delves into Esri's ArcGIS StoryMaps competition. This competition underscores Esri's commitment to the restoration and conservation of Earth's lands and waters. Storytellers from across the globe are invited to share their contributions to the global conservation conversation, and there's still time for you to participate.
