Top 5 Parking Locations at Lambert St. Louis Airport (Updated 2018)
A few years ago I posted an analysis of the best airport parking providers near Lambert St. Louis Airport. Even though I usually post technology and mapping related posts, this is actually one of the most popular posts on this blog. (Lol!) In the intervening years since that was posted, some of the information has gone stale - most notably the parking prices changed which, it turns out, changes the order of the list!

Shotcharts Revisited - From NBA Stats to Feature Service in Less Than 20 Lines of Code
View larger map A guest post by Gregory Brunner About two years ago, I wrote about creating shotcharts in ArcGIS using Python and arcpy. In the post, I demonstrated how to scrape the data from stats.nba.com and create a shots feature class from the data. I then shared the resulting shotchart as several web maps in ArcGIS Online. What I was unable to do at the time was automate the creation of the feature service and web maps that I shared in that post.
Analyzing Landsat Image Metadata with the Spatial DataFrame
A guest post by Gregory Brunner A few weeks ago, Esri released an update to the ArcGIS API for Python. The newest release includes: An intuitive and powerful raster API Powerful GIS administration Spatial DataFrames!!! Hopefully, you can tell that the new functionality in the API that I am most excited about is the [spatial dataframe](http://developers.arcgis.com/help doc)! The spatial dataframe extends the pandas dataframe by adding geometry, spatial reference, and other spatial components to the dataframe.
Published Web App
Last week Missouri got a lot of rain, which caused flooding in the Meramec river valley near St. Louis. I received a link to an ArcGIS Image Service that Surdex had created and provided that showed the flooding as of Tuesday 5/2. They flew this imagery as a service to the government and first responders, hoping to help those affected quicker and more efficiently. Here’s a sample: I was really interested in this imagery, but it lacked some context - I couldn’t tell how the flooding depicted in the imagery compared to normal conditions.
St. Louis Lambert Airport Passenger Data
Our city’s airport posts data on how many passengers travel through the airport each month and year. It’s posted as a PDF but the data is hard to use in that format. I grabbed the data and put it into a better format: Why not convert to a graph too? I’ve posted this data on GitHub. It tells an interesting story of how the early 2000s was tough years for Lambert, but recent years the demand has ticked up.
Open Data in University City
I live in University City, MO, which has no crime. Don’t believe me? This map says so: Open Government The benefits of open government data - crime data being just one aspect of that - is well documented. It allows you and I to take the data the process it, innovate on it, be informed based on it, and keep our government officials accountable. It is easier now more than ever to have a basic open data program at any government level.
Extending Widgets in ArcGIS Web AppBuilder
I’ve had many requests and ideas for Web AppBuilder widgets over the past few years, and many times they are ideas that are building on an existing widget. For example, a query widget that is custom to a particular workflow, an edit widget that enforces certain geometry movement restrictions, or maybe adding a few more options to the built-in print widget. Most developers will copy the original out-of-the-box (OOTB) widget, rename it, and then start development from there.
