    It was just announced that June was the 3rd hottest on record, Johns Hopkins put the number of COVID-19 cases at 13-million, and over 300,000 sq km of protected areas were created last month. These are all indicators of the planet’s vitality, but traditionally you’d need to bookmark three different websites to keep track of these and other metrics. In partnership with Microsoft, National Geographic, and the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Esri is gathering these and other topics into the ArcGIS Living Atlas Indicators of the Planet (Beta). Leveraging the near real-time information already contributed to Living Atlas by organizations such as NOAA, UN Environment Programme, and US Geological Survey, ArcGIS Living Atlas Indicators of the Planet draws upon authoritative sources for the latest updates on 18 topics, with more being developed. In addition to the summary statistics provided by the GeoCards, there are a series of maps and resources to better understand each issue and learn how to integrate timely data into decision making, along with stories on progress towards building a sustainable planet. ArcGIS Living Atlas Indicators of the Planet was developed using ArcGIS Experience Builder and is in its Beta release while additional capabilities are being implemented. This Experience Builder template can be customized for your own topics of interest. All of the underlying layers, maps, and apps are available from this Content Group. link: https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/003f05cc447b46dc8818640c38b69b83

    hello everyone, I'm a long time user of arcmap and already two years ago on my computer I installed arcgis pro... now I don't know for you but I'm postponing for years the real switch between versions and I'm still on arcmap... this because it seems to me that even if the expectations were very high, arcgis pro still doesn't seem to have that much declaimed performance. In particular, I'm concerned about the fact that for every little thing, it starts a geoprocessing that lasts between seconds and minutes, then for each function is a maze of menus and submenus where at the end I don't know where they are anymore. and I don't know for you, but it seems to me that "pro" is just an advertising program to convince even those who are not professionals to make maps, this even if they don't understand technically what they did.

    what's really frustrating it's that esri still has his "standard response" every time I try to address an issue : - do you have the last version? (and of course in a big company you simply don't get the last last last patch at +1minute after the release > so this will be for them the solution nr. one. > and of course it will never change anything) .. then... The following question will be "can you send me a copy of your system configuration ?" (and of course they will find a way to say that your hardware it's "old" even if it does comply to all the requirements) - I'm pretty sure you have an installation issue.. please reinstall (so you have to get another problem with your IT department) VERY FRUSTRATING I'm in business since a while and every time those guys comes with the best solution for you I have an alarm bell going on.. * it will be a 64 bit solution (can you remember those bull****?), so better then arcmap and as always it doesnt make a little difference.. * it's 2D and 3D in one only software (but did they mention to you that you will need some extra licences? not to me). so basically.. I LOVE QGIS ! 😍😍😍

    this response basically in every big software company, if you got error on windows for example, you will get pretty much same sh*t, ahahahaha I prefer search on 3rd party forum, like stakeoverflow or such....

    Current u-blox GNSS platforms — from u-blox M8 and beyond — support the recently completed BeiDou navigation satellite system modernizations, improving the availability of GNSS positioning services. The opening ceremony of the BeiDou-3 global navigation satellite system (GNSS) was held in Beijing on July 31, officially celebrating the expansion of coverage offered by the critical Chinese space infrastructure to a global user base. As a global supplier of GNSS positioning and wireless communication technologies, u-blox has been driving technological innovation and deeply involved in the Chinese market for many years. Tests conducted across China and Europe have shown that including the BeiDou system can improve the positioning accuracy of GNSS receivers when multiple navigation satellite systems are tracked concurrently. When signals are partially obstructed, positioning accuracy can be significantly improved by incorporating the BeiDou system. Data shows that in 2019, the overall output value of the Chinese satellite navigation and location service industry reached nearly 345 billion yuan, an increase of 14.4% over 2018, with the output value expected to exceed 400 billion yuan in 2020. Additional Services Provided by BeiDou The BeiDou system provides a suite of additional services, including satellite and ground-based augmentation services, precise single-point positioning, precise timing and global short message services, laying a solid foundation for BeiDou’s ubiquitous navigation and tracking applications. Applications of GNSS technology continue to diversify, leveraging the all-weather, all-time, tracking, navigation and timing services it offers. GNSS technology is penetrating deeper into traditional industrial verticals, such as agriculture, forestry, animal husbandry and fishery, power and energy, as well as in railway and air transportation, including their infrastructure construction and management. At the same time, GNSS technology has become an indispensable and “smart” factor in emerging application fields such as the internet of things and the “internet of vehicles,” as well as in innovative applications such as autonomous driving, automatic parking and automatic logistics, and is now commonplace in many industrial and consumer use cases. “U-blox has been closely following the modernization of the BeiDou navigation system and is ready to work with partners in various industries to promote the expansion of industry applications, expand emerging markets and jointly create a green industry ecosystem,” said Hamilton Chen, China country manager at u-blox. source: https://www.gpsworld.com/u-blox-technology-platforms-support-beidou-3/

    A joint NASA-USGS initiative has created the first worldwide map of the causes of change in mangrove habitats between 2000 and 2016. Mangrove trees can be found growing in the salty mud along the Earth’s tropical and subtropical coastlines. Mangroves are vital to aquatic ecosystems due to their ability to prevent soil erosion and store carbon. Mangroves also provide critical habitat to multiple marine species such as algae, barnacles, oysters, sponges, shrimp, crabs, and lobsters. Mangroves are threatened by both human and natural causes. Human activities in the form of farming and aquaculture and natural stressors such as erosion and extreme weather have both driven mangrove habitat loss. The joint study analyzed over one million Landsat images captured between 2000 and 2016 to create the first-ever global map visualizing the drivers of mangrove loss. Causes of mangrove loss were mapped at a resolution of 30 meters. Researchers found that 62% of mangrove loss during the time period studied was due to land use changes, mostly from conversion to aquaculture and agriculture. Roughly 80% of the loss was concentrated in six Southeast Asian nations: Indonesia, Myanmar, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. Mangrove loss due to human activities did decline 73% between 2000 and 2016. Mangrove loss due to natural events also decreased but at a lessor rate than human-led activities. Map and graphs showing global distribution of mangrove loss and its drivers. From the study: “(a) The longitudinal distribution of total mangrove loss and the relative contribution of its primary drivers. Different colors represent unique drivers of mangrove loss. (b) The latitudinal distribution of total mangrove loss and the relative contribution of its primary drivers. (c‐g) Global distribution of mangrove loss and associated drivers from 2000 to 2016 at 1°×1° resolution, with the relative contribution (percentage) of primary drivers per continent: (c) North America, (d) South America, (e) Africa, (f) Asia, (g) Australia together with Oceania.” links: https://www.mangrovelossdrivers.app/

    A Long March-2D carrier rocket, carrying the Gaofen-9 04 satellite, is launched from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China, Aug. 6, 2020. China successfully launched a new optical remote-sensing satellite from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center at 12:01 p.m. Thursday (Beijing Time). (Photo by Wang Jiangbo/Xinhua) JIUQUAN, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- China successfully launched a new optical remote-sensing satellite from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China at 12:01 p.m. Thursday (Beijing Time). The satellite, Gaofen-9 04, was sent into orbit by a Long March-2D carrier rocket. It has a resolution up to the sub-meter level. The satellite will be mainly used for land surveys, city planning, land right confirmation, road network design, crop yield estimation and disaster prevention and mitigation. It will also provide information for the development of the Belt and Road Initiative. The same carrier rocket also sent the Gravity & Atmosphere Scientific Satellite (Q-SAT) into space. The Q-SAT satellite, developed by Tsinghua University, will help with the satellite system design approach and orbital atmospheric density measurement, among others. Thursday's launch was the 342nd mission of the Long March rocket series. source: http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/2020-08/06/c_139269788.htm

    It does really work. You probably missed one step or two during the process. One method you can do to check whether the file is NT or non-NT is by using GPSMapEdit, because it won't open NT format otherwise it will. Here I show you the snapshot when I try to open an NT format file in GPSMapEdit. Here is the same file with a non-NT format. OK, since I cannot edit my previous post, I am going to re-explain the procedures here. I enclose some snapshots for the clarity. Open the GMAP Tool Add the NT formatted img file/s (in my case, filename is 62320070.img) Go to Split tab and create subfiles. Click Split All. Download Garmin-GMP-extractor.exe tool and then put it in the same folder with your working files. Drag the GMP file into the Garmin GMP extractor tools. It will explod/extract the GMP fiel into five type of subfiles (.LBL, .NET, .NOD, .RGN and .TRE) Back to GMAPTool. Add those subfiles. Go to Join tab. Name the output file and directory. We can give mapset name. And the click Join all. FINALLY, the result is another img file with non-NT format. If you watch closely there is a slight difference of filesize between both files.
