What's Making Us Mappy - Our hosts share one cool thing that is catching their eye in the world of ArcGIS

Mark shamelessly plugs some GeoSnaps he’s been working on. It’s a five-part series walking through the workflow of editing related records in the Map Viewer for ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Enterprise. This is a game changer that makes it easy to perform data collection using a simple web app.  Maggie shouts out her love for Effects in Map Viewer. You can apply amazing cartographic effects to your map layers in a web map to make them pop! Two of Maggie’s favourite effects are Drop Shadow (which makes objects look like they’re floating) and Hue Rotate (which uses a colour wheel to transform colours).

Inside the Arc - Feature interview that takes our audience inside an Esri product or capability

On March 1st, ArcMap entered the Mature Support phase of its product life cycle. This marks the last milestone before the upcoming retirement of ArcGIS Desktop. For ArcMap users, now is a great time to plan the transition to ArcGIS Pro. To help us understand what this all means for those who are still using ArcMap, we are joined by our good friend Erica Morra. She is the Director for Product Management at Esri Canada. Erica shares her insights and advice for those who are still using ArcMap and a pathway towards migrating to ArcGIS Pro.

The GeoGeeks - Rotation of Esri Canada panelists share what's new in ArcGIS technology

We are thrilled to welcome our newest GeoGeek!  But he’s not a new voice to this pod.  Brandon Wheatley was one of our first guests, and now he is our resident ArcGIS Online GeoGeek. In this podcast, Brandon gives you a rundown of what’s new in the most recent release of ArcGIS Online in February 2024.

M versus M - Our hosts quiz each other about all things ArcGIS and GIS

It’s all about size on this battle of MvM. Maggie dives deep into the pages of Wikipedia to gather information for her epic game - What’s Bigger! Simple rules: she lists two countries, and Mark needs to guess which one is bigger in area. Will he finally break his painfully long losing streak? Tune in and play along.
