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!
The original order from the releases of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, as they were released before being moved to Netflix.
About two years ago, I wrote about creating shotcharts in ArcGIS using Python and arcpy. With recent enhancements to the ArcGIS API for Python, I can do this all in Python and I can to this in less than 20 lines of code! (A guest post by Gregory Brunner)
A few weeks ago, Esri released an update to the ArcGIS API for Python. The new functionality in the API that I am most excited about is the spatial dataframe! The spatial dataframe extends the pandas dataframe by adding geometry, spatial reference, and other spatial components to the dataframe. (A guest post by Gregory Brunner)
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.
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.
I live in University City, MO, which has no crime. Don’t believe me? This map says so.
I’ve had many requests and ideas for Web AppBuilder widgets over the past few years, and many are ideas that build on an existing widget. Most developers will copy the original out-of-the-box (OOTB) widget, rename it, and then start development from there. Which is great because it gets you moving quickly. But is this really the best way to do things?
