We wanted to add some video tutorials to show new ArcGIS users how to edit data in ArcMap. Step 1 is to create a File Geodatabase. In this video we cover creating a File Geodatabase in ArcMap 10.1 that we will use in our next video to add data to our project. To see all of our ArcGIS tutorials please visit out YouTube Channel.
We have had a lot of people lately ask us how to georeference imagery. So, as long as it is a hot topic, we just posted VerticalGeo’s new video tutorial on “Georeferencing Imagery in ArcGIS 10.1 Desktop” on our YouTube Channel. Here it is:
Google’s Project Tango is a very interesting project that brings an entirely new focus to crowd sourced mapping data.
Here’s a great TED talk by Aris Venetikidis on the difference between the cognitive maps we use to navigate in our mind and the physical maps we use in the world.
Thank you to Charlene Turczyn for sharing this TED presentation. Amazing capability Photosynth brings to us that capture the world in photographs.
Good to see our friend Donald Effren at AutoCopter Corp made the Precision Ag Magazine top 10 Video List. Donald is a great guy and AutoCopter is changing the way growers monitor their production. It is a transformational technology. We were at the InfoAg Conference in Springfield last July when Donald and the AutoCopter Team demonstrated the capabilities of the UAV and it was very impressive. Congrats Donald!
Thanks again to GISCafe for pointing us to this great article. The interior of stores have been mapped for a while. The difficult part has been determining your position in the store in 3-D. Sounds like there have been breakthroughs in that technology that will now allow us to use services similar to the GPS we use for driving, only now for indoor shopping. This is a game changer.
