Global Forest Watch Fires

Actor and environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio shared a post on Instagram featuring Global Forest Watch Fires. He suggested the application as a great way for people to stay informed about the fires in the Amazon. The post received over 1.1 million likes and created major spikes in traffic to the GFW Fires site. It's great to see the impact of our work on a global scale. 
Emergency Management Workshop

Disaster Response Workshop

The Blue Raster team attended an ArcGIS Solutions for Emergency Management workshop at Esri’s Redlands Campus to learn about the range of products that help emergency management officials manage response resources and visualize events. We are excited to add these capabilities to our continuously growing line of GIS professional services, and our team is ready to contribute to new emergency preparedness and disaster response efforts.
ArcGIS Urban Workshop

ArcGIS Urban Workshop

Project Manager Megan Gottfried took her ArcGIS Urban skills to the next level at Esri’s "Deploying ArcGIS Urban" training. The new ArcGIS Urban platform is an innovative, 3D experience designed to streamline urban planning processes and municipal decision-making. Megan learned both the back-end and front-end of ArcGIS Urban to be prepared to provide our clients with tips and best practices for deployment.

GIS for Workforce Development

GIS for Workforce Development

We recently helped the American Institutes for Research (AIR) produce a national-level work-based learning map. Built using ArcGIS Online and the Esri JavaScript API, the map can be custom-tailored to specific state or local agency leadership teams. Using these maps, teams can contextualize their workforce development initiatives and refine their understanding of resources and socioeconomic distribution across their region.
Geo DC Meetup

Interns Joseph Nadonley and Kelly Motzko presented at the Geo DC Summer Intern Showcase.
