    premium web application for ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7 that provides users with tools and capabilities in a project-based environment that streamlines image analysis and structure observation management. Interested in working with imagery in a modern, web-based experience? Here’s a look at some of the features ArcGIS Excalibur 1.0 has to offer: Search for Imagery ArcGIS Excalibur makes it easy to search and discover imagery available to you within your organization through a number of experiences. You can connect directly to an imagery layer, an image service URL, or even through the imagery catalog search. The imagery catalog search allows you to quickly search for imagery layers over areas of interest to discover and queue images for further use. Work with imagery Once you have located the imagery of interest, you can easily connect to the imagery exploitation canvas where you can utilize a wide variety of tools to begin working with your imagery. The imagery exploitation canvas allows you to view your imagery on top of a default basemap where the imagery is automatically orthorectified and aligned with the map. The exploitation canvas also enables you to simultaneously view the same image in a more focused manner as it was captured in its native perspective. Display Tools Optimizing imagery to get the most value out of each image pixel is a breeze with ArcGIS Excalibur display tools. The image display tools include image renderers, filters, the ability to change band combinations, and even apply settings like DRA and gamma. Settings to change image transparency and compression are also included. Exploitation Tools Ever need to highlight key areas of interest through mark up, labeling, and measurement? Through the mark-up tools, you can create simple graphics on top of your imagery using text and shape elements to call attention to areas of interest through outline, fill, transparency, and much more. The measurements tool allows you to measure horizontal and vertical distances, areas, and feature locations on an image. Export Tools The exploitation results saved in an image project can be easily shared using the export tools. The create presentation tool exports your current view directly to a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation, along with the metadata of the imagery. Introducing an Imagery Project ArcGIS Excalibur also introduces the concept of an imagery project to help streamline imagery workflows by leveraging the ArcGIS platform. An ArcGIS Excalibur imagery project is a dynamic way to organize resources, tools, and workflows required to complete an image-based task. An imagery project can contain geospatial reference layers and a set of tools for a focused image analysis and structured observation management workflows. Content created within imagery projects can be shared and made available to your organization to leverage in downstream analysis and shared information products.

    The importance of GIS in any organization regardless of its size or the industry can never be underestimated. There is a growing interest in awareness of the strategic value of GIS. What has catalyzed the interest is the more standards-based technology and greater awareness of the benefits demonstrated by GIS users. The demand for GIS enterprise solutions and IT strategies that include GIS is growing rapidly. Learn More..

    The picture like above are not actual picture of Black Hole (it is a wallpaper 😁 ). Early Wednesday (April 10, 2019) morning, a huge collaboration of scientists are expected to release the first images of the event horizon of a black hole, constructed from data gathered by observatories all over the globe. Combined, the telescopes created a virtual telescope as big as the Earth itself that’s powerful enough to capture enough data from the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy. Tomorrow, we may finally see all of that data pieced together. Black holes, by their nature, are impossible to see with the naked eye since they are so dense that no light can escape them. Instead, any images that will be released will be the silhouette of a black hole, an outline against all of the super bright, hot gas that is thought to surround these weird celestial objects. It will be as close as we can get to a picture of a black hole’s infamous “event horizon,” the boundary of a black hole where the gravitational pull is so great that there is no escape. The Event Horizon Telescope actually observed two black holes during one week in April 2017: Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy, and M87, which is thought to be in the center of a nearby galaxy called Virgo. Both of these objects are thought to be incredibly dense. Sagittarius A*, or SgrA*, is thought to be 4 million times more massive than our Sun and 30 times larger than the star. But because it is so far away — a distance of about 26,000 light-years — the black hole appears to telescopes on Earth as though it is about the size of small ball on the surface of the Moon, according to the collaboration. To focus in on the massive but distant objects, the Event Horizon team employed telescopes in Chile, Hawaii, Arizona, the South Pole, and other locations around the globe. Each telescope measured the radiation coming from the large swaths of gas and dust that are thought to surround black holes. These clouds of gas heat up to billions of degrees, and because the material is so hot, they emit lots of radiation, which the team could then observe from Earth. All of that data was then combined in a supercomputer to make an image that looked as if it came from a single, giant telescope. “This is a picture you would have seen if you had eyes as big as the Earth and were observing in radio,” Psaltis says. Getting all of this data isn’t easy. In fact, the reason it’s taken so long to mount a project of this scale is that the telescopes gather so much information — about one petabyte, or a million gigabytes — of data each night of observing. It’s the largest amount of recording of any other experiment in physics or astronomy, says Psaltis. The team had to wait for hard drive technology to evolve so that it could hold the sheer amount of data that the team was collecting. “Five years ago, you couldn’t buy enough hard drives to have a terabyte of data on a telescope,” says Psaltis. What that enormous amount of data shows could change our understanding of black holes. These objects are so dense that it’s thought that they actually leave an imprint on the surrounding space-time, warping gravity and creating strange effects on their surroundings, which scientists are still trying to understand. A picture of a black hole could tell us more about these odd happenings at the event horizon. - the Verge UPDATE - This is an actual Black Hole !

We know that a black hole sits at the center of the M87 galaxy.” How they took the image First-ever picture of a black hole unveiled
