5 Things on Friday #62 – LiDAR Data, the Best of DevSummit, Data Scientist Tips and more

Time for another 5 Things on Friday, our first one of the summer! We’ve shared some useful tidbits this week, including: an amazing LiDAR resource from Washington state, the complete video collection from DevSummit, an FAA map of where you can legally fly, preparing for wildfire season, and some tips for the budding Data Scientist. Got a tip for a future edition. Please share with us in a comment below or on Twitter @geojobegis

E360 Videos – 2018 DevSummit

Have you looked through the Esri360 Video gallery lately? This fabulous resource is jam packed with informative, interesting, and educational content that everyone really should take advantage of. With so many users migrating to the ArcGIS Pro environment there’s likely a demand for tutorials that can help. Enjoy all the videos n Youtube and re-live DevSummit!


FAA UAS Data Map

Know where you can fly! The FAA has a webmap service in ArcGIS Online  (see map below) where you can visualize no-fly areas and other special permits only and restricted airspace. The FAA UAS Data webmap can be accessed HERE.


Washington State DNRBare Earth

For geologists, LiDAR is an invaluable tool that enables them to see and study large areas of the earth’s surface, particularly in places where trees and vegetation obscure the landscape. Learn more about how LiDAR is used in Washington State to monitor and manage the resources that are affected by the forces of Nature.

Learn to become a Data Scientist

Dataquest is a great learning resource offering free training to help you become a data scientist (a top career opportunity recently). Learn Python, R and other in-demand skills . Learn by writing code, working with data, and building projects in your browser. Use the resource to work on real life data science problems .
