Wenscott Developments is currently developing a 14-hectare site in Thunder Bay into a residential neighbourhood. Planners wanted to understand exactly where bedrock formations on the raw land could be found underground, so Wenscott reached out to Sumac Geomatics to conduct a topographic survey. Sumac used a combination of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and ArcGIS to efficiently create a comprehensive dataset that was integrated into a suite of maps. These information products helped Wenscott develop the subdivision around the bedrock, saving the developer valuable time and money.
This year, Esri will unveil the next generation of real-time GIS. It will enable users to ingest, analyze and store millions of sensor events per second at scale; rapidly visualize, replay and explore observations that are in the billions of features; and quickly perform batch analytics on this profusion of information. Available through Esri Managed Services, this new real-time GIS can keep pace with the meteoric rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) and handle any organization's big data needs.
