A defining feature of urban poverty alleviation programmes in India in the last decades has been their ever-increasing size, scale and speed of implementation. The government plays a leading role in the planning and execution of these programmes in collaboration with large (often multi-national) private sector consultants. And increasingly vast amounts of digital data are created in the process, data that is almost always beyond the capacity of the government to store, process and analyse.

It’s extremely important to understand the technical and operational aspects of the programmes, whether one wishes to offer constructive criticism or simply evaluate and make sense of their alleged impacts. Exploring in detail ‘how’ a project is executed also throws light on ‘who’ actually implements it, using ‘what’ tools and techniques. One can then also understand what happens to the data generated and who is effectively in charge of it.

One amusing fact, which many researchers of the Indian developmental ecosystem tend to misinterpret, is that when the government says, "we can’t share the data with you" (which they almost always do) – they really mean it (even if they may not be conscious of the real reasons). They can’t share the data primarily because they may not even physically possess it, or even if they do, they are unaware of its existence!

Data hunting…

In 2017, when I had just started working as a consultant for the government of Odisha, one of my tasks was to visit various offices operating under the department of Housing & Urban Development (H&UD) and scoop up whatever GIS data I could find on the slums of Odisha.

I was quite used to all manners of ‘data collection warfare’ that one has to do with government departments in India to get even the most irrelevant bit of information. So going data hunting with the seal of the principal secretary of H&UD should have been a walk in the park. What followed was as amusing as it was data-enriching.

After hopping from cubicle to cubicle in the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) office, I finally reached a corner desk where a very polite official told me what I was waiting to hear: "Unfortunately, we have no GIS data on slums – or for that matter on anything else. The Bhubaneswar Development Authority may have files of road networks and so on, but they won't supply them to you." The last few words were said with a particularly kind smile, which strongly suggested that he was speaking from experience.

Was he an employee of the BMC? Well, yes... and no. He too was a consultant on the payroll of a private company. After some conversation (people without conversation skills should never go data hunting in India) he seemed to remember an old folder that was stored in the desktop computer on the side and which, judging by the coat of dust, had not been switched on in a long time.

As he navigated to the folder, he remembered more: "The RAY GIS data was stored here... then the programme was abandoned and no one used it anymore."

RAY – or Rajiv Awas Yojana – was a promising, pan-Indian scheme of the Ministry of Housing and Poverty Alleviation, which died a premature death when the previous regime lost political power in 2014. However, RAY had created comprehensive guidelines for preparing geospatial databases of slums across India and many slums had indeed been surveyed before the programme shut down.

To my astonishment, I found that the folder contained a whopping 1GB of geospatial data, complete with slum boundaries, streets, land ownership details and slum house footprints for all 436 slums of Bhubaneswar – as well as the detailed household survey results from around 100,000 slum dwellings.

What was this treasure doing lying forgotten inside a dusty desktop? I wasted no time copying all the data to my hard drive. So much for "Unfortunately, we have no data on slums."

It’s not about the money

One of the reasons for the reluctance of concerned government departments to use, store and update geospatial data is that despite the enormous developments in the field of free and open-source GIS software in the last decades, the prevalent belief continues to be that one has to use extremely expensive, proprietary GIS software.

The price of the software also acts as an effective barrier to mass learning and use. This affects the ability of community organisations to take ownership of digital geospatial data of their own settlements and intervene meaningfully in the spatial decision-making process (I shall deal with this aspect in detail in my next blog).

As a result of all the above factors, the whole task of generating GIS data is outsourced to private consultancies, who undertake the geospatial surveys, prepare the databases and store them on their own servers for the duration of the project.

On termination (normal or premature) of the project, the data is (theoretically) ‘handed-over’ to the government, which neither has the systems nor the professional capacity to ‘accept’ it. The data is mostly lost, misplaced, forgotten or tucked away in dust-coated desktops (which is actually the best-case scenario). Such is the fate of gigantic pools of digital data that are prepared as part of large development projects in India.

Share and share alike – or even reshare

Two years later, in a presentation to the newly appointed commissioner of BMC, I showed the same data to him. To my astonishment, he asked if I could share this valuable data (which was his own office’s data) with him as his office had no such data on slums. Of course, by ‘office’ he meant the members of the private sector consultancy that staffed his project management unit.

Data is definitely power, but to have the tables turned so completely one needs not only the power of data but of data obsolescence acting in one’s favour. I ‘reluctantly’ (I couldn’t resist some drama at so ridiculous a moment) agreed to ‘share’ the data on the condition that I would also install the open source QGIS software on the laptops of his consultants and teach them the basics of operating the software. They readily agreed. Although, I must confess that I was very tempted to end the discussion with an “unfortunately, this data cannot be shared”.

I was waiting for them to ask me about the source of the data – they never did.

To be continued...

Killexams : Esri and Safe Software Collaborate for Successful CIM Interoperability Test

Utilities Can Share Data between Esri's ArcGIS Utility Network and Different Systems with Unified Industry-Standard Format

REDLANDS, Calif., October 04, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Electric utilities have long struggled to share data among their planning, asset, customer, and operational systems. The processes are often costly, inaccurate, time-consuming, and ineffective. Expanding the ability of electric utilities to work from one standard interface, the Common Information Model (CIM) is a single trusted data management, analysis, and alignment solution that can heavily leverage geographic information system (GIS) technology.

Supporting the industry as the global leader in GIS, Esri, together with partner Safe Software, has successfully participated in an interoperability test for the CIM.

"While utilities have been exporting data from Esri's ArcGIS software into the CIM standard for nearly a decade, this test illustrates that the technologies are aligned," said Bill Meehan, Esri director of electric utilities solutions, who led this effort along with Esri solution architect John Alsup.

Some of the systems and tools that utilities wish to interoperate using CIM include the following:

  • GIS

  • Energy management systems (EMS)

  • Advanced distribution management systems (ADMS)

  • Outage management systems (OMS)

  • Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA)

  • Simulation analysis programs like power flow, short circuit, stability, relay protection, lightning protection, and surge analysis

The interoperability test was part of the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) Grid Model Data Management (GMDM) initiative. It was held from June 14 to June 16 at EPRI's Charlotte offices. UCA International Users Group, a not-for-profit corporation focused on assisting users and vendors, witnessed, monitored, and provided test direction and reporting services. "EPRI's GMDM initiative creates an architecture that allows disparate technologies to share information in a neutral industry-standard format without building custom interfaces," added Meehan.

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has adopted the CIM as an industry standard for electrical utility data interoperability since 2001.

Climate change is compounding risks of food insecurity, displacement, and natural disasters across broad regions of the African continent, with vulnerable populations facing especially grave outcomes. However, several countries in Africa are already innovating and driving the next big tech sector boom, with companies creating solutions to close social and economic gaps. To support local organizations that use data sciences to address these challenges, Esri—the global leader in location intelligence—has entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Digital Earth Africa.

 

Intended to encourage and support sustainability in governance and commerce, this partnership will create and launch technology solutions based on free, open-source satellite images and other forms of earth observation data. Using Esri's geographic information system (GIS) software, African organizations will be able to analyze imagery data to discover patterns and predict future outcomes. This rich content will be accessible via the Africa GeoPortal, a comprehensive cloud-based platform that provides geographic data and imagery for Africa as well as solutions from Esri and its partners.

 

"We are proud to partner with Digital Earth Africa to make usable earth observation data more accessible," said Jack Dangermond, Esri founder and president. "This agreement supports the important work for sustainable growth that is taking place across the continent."

 

Once collected, satellite imagery must be processed so that it meets the standards of consistency and accuracy that are required for scientific investigation. Digital Earth Africa makes this data ready for analysis for the whole continent. GIS provides the tools and capabilities to create maps, apps, and more, easily turning these images into actionable data.

 

"We are producing decision-ready products with earth observation data," said Dr. Thembi Xaba, Digital Earth Africa's managing director. "Our platform and services enable African governments, industry, and decision-makers to track changes across the continent to equip users to better plan for the future."

 

The partnership between Esri and Digital Earth Africa will make accessible four decades of imagery. The goal is to help create understanding and awareness of short- and long-term risk from flooding, drought, and soil and coastal erosion. The imagery and data layers can be used to monitor agriculture, forest cover, land masses, water availability and quality, and variations within human settlements.

 

All of this is accessible through the Africa GeoPortal with preconfigured apps and advanced tools for new and experienced users. Esri's ArcGIS Online software, made available through the partnership, will help eliminate common barriers, such as cost and the need for technical skill, to accessing valuable earth observation data. As a community GIS platform, the Africa GeoPortal increases the discoverability and usage of content such as that from Digital Earth Africa through tools, data, and learning.

Killexams : House price rises ‘cannot continue’ says ESRI as it predicts slowdown in 2023

Spiralling house prices “cannot continue into the future” and are set to moderate next year, according to the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI).

House prices were over-valued by at least 7pc last year but will cool in future, the leading think-tank has predicted.

Rising interest rates and a running down of household savings should ease the house price spike, the ESRI said in its latest economic commentary.

House prices jumped more than 14pc, year on year, in June, but slowed to 13pc in July, according to the Central Statistics Office.

“That doesn’t necessarily mean that house prices are going to fall by that amount,” said ESRI research professor Kieran McQuinn.

Concern over power outages grows as demand for electricity continues to rise

“But what it does suggest is that, really, the kind of substantial increases in house prices that we have witnessed cannot continue into the future, and you are likely to see a significant moderation in terms of house price growth in the coming quarters and over the next year.”

The ESRI is predicting a slowdown in the Irish economy next year – but it expects jobs, spending and investment to hold up due to strong growth in the pharmaceutical and technology sectors.

Modified domestic demand – a measure of growth that strips out the effects of aircraft leasing and patents – is forecast to drop by more than half, from 7.5pc this year to 2.5pc next year.

Inflation is expected to hit 8.1pc this year and fall only slightly to an average of 6.8pc over 2023, as high energy costs persist.

The Central Bank predicted this week that Ireland could enter a “technical recession” in 2023 – defined as at least two successive quarters of negative growth – although it said growth will be positive on average for the year.

Mr McQuinn said there is “definitely evidence of a slowing down in the economy” but said there was “enough of a dynamic there for the economy to continue to grow strongly”.

Export growth will continue into next year, the ESRI forecasts, although it will drop from 10.5pc in 2022 to 6.2pc in 2023.

Consumer spending is expected to remain positive, growing 3.2pc this year and 2.5pc in 2023, while overall investment will rise to 7.4pc next year from 3.1pc in 2022.

Bumper tax receipts mean the budget will be in surplus again next year, Mr McQuinn said, leaving the Government with “some capacity for further initiatives if needed” to contain rising energy prices.

ESRI associate research professor Conor O’Toole said the upbeat forecast was because the pharmaceutical and technology sectors “appear to be insulated” from global volatility.

However, he said the growing importance of the two sectors to the economy – their contribution to Irish growth has almost doubled in a decade, the ESRI estimates –  feeds into the State’s over-reliance on corporation tax receipts from a small number of large multinationals, which is set to “get even greater”.

The ESRI predicts tax gains of between €675m and €2bn from a new 15pc minimum corporate tax rate agreed last year at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

But losses could amount to between €2.4bn and €5bn if multinationals were to re-home their patents or withdraw investment as a result of the changes.

Killexams : Esri Sponsors EV Road Trip with Zpryme Showcasing the Need for New Charging Stations

Leading Electric Utilities Use GIS Technology to Map Future Infrastructure

REDLANDS, Calif. -As the US prepares to dramatically expand its network of charging stations for electric vehicles (EVs) and update power grids to meet growing demand, planners in many jurisdictions are drafting strategies to capture some of the $5 billion slated to help states pay for charging stations under President Joseph Biden’s Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

“GIS can integrate data about a community’s demographics, traffic counts, and existing charging stations—this information can be linked to a location and overlaid on a digital map that can be updated and shared as plans change and evolve.”

To support this effort, Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, is cosponsoring an EV road trip with Zpryme, an energy utility research company. The trip, taking place October 17–21 and spanning more than 400 miles across the state of California, is intended to call attention to the need to modernize America’s power grids and build more charging stations in order to reduce reliance on fossil fuels that contribute to climate change.

Along the route from Sacramento to Esri’s Redlands headquarters, Zpryme’s researchers will visit some of California’s leading power companies. During those stops, the researchers will learn about plans being developed to increase power grid capacity to produce more electricity for EVs.

Many power companies already rely on Esri’s geographic information system (GIS) software to create dynamic, data-driven interactive maps and dashboards for planning and forecasting, design, and collaboration.

“Geospatial technology is already a fundamental part of how many utility companies operate, so it will be a critical tool in scaling up the nation’s EV infrastructure,” said Matt Piper, Esri’s global director for industry solutions. “GIS can integrate data about a community’s demographics, traffic counts, and existing charging stations—this information can be linked to a location and overlaid on a digital map that can be updated and shared as plans change and evolve.”

EV owners often have range anxiety, the fear of not finding enough charging stations to complete a journey. This can be a concern for many consumers and slow their transition to the technology. Utilities and planners can use GIS to identify and address gaps in a municipal network of charging stations, predict future demand, and address concerns about equity in station distribution.

“Utility companies are navigating an environment of regulatory shifts and changing consumer behavior and, as a result, are making decisions about the evolution of their business models,” said Jason Rodriguez, CEO of Zpryme. “Modernization is necessary to meet these future expectations and to become more resilient in this era where we must find solutions to address the effects of climate change.”

All 50 US states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico have submitted EV infrastructure deployment plans, as required under the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program. These plans are required in order to receive support from the first round of $5 billion funding expected over the next five years.

States must ensure that their networks are user-friendly, reliable, and accessible to all Americans and comply with Federal Highway Administration (FHA) standards. GIS technology provides cutting-edge capabilities for collecting and analyzing data to meet these FHA standards, as well as an equity index tool for identifying priority populations and gaps in service.

Killexams : Esri and ROSHN Join Forces to Bring Geospatial Technology to Saudi Arabia's Real Estate Development Redlands, Calif., United States:  

ROSHN, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's national real estate developer, backed by the country's Public Investment Fund (PIF), supports government efforts to increase the rates of homeownership while delivering high-quality living standards. The Saudi Arabia developer builds communities that look both to the nation's heritage as well as evolving resident aspirations. To support its vision and ongoing projects in the region, ROSHN has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Esri, the global leader in location intelligence.

The agreement enables ROSHN to adopt Esri's suite of geographic information system (GIS) products and solutions to Boost the planning and development of 200 million square meters of sustainable neighborhoods across Saudi Arabia.

 

"This is an incredibly exciting development for ROSHN and the wider real estate sector," said Sabah Barakat, ROSHN's chief operating officer. "As well as deploying the latest GIS applications in the development of ROSHN's new communities, we will also be collaborating with Esri to advance the concept of GIS within Saudi Arabia, including the design of commercial products to be used in the domestic market."

 

ROSHN's first project, SEDRA, located just south of King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, is a walkable community, with green spaces, cycle tracks, hospitals, medical centers, schools, mosques, and retail outlets. Access to Esri's GIS technology will allow ROSHN to better plan projects like this by enabling staff to analyze and visualize developments geospatially to see how projects impact the surrounding environment, determine whether they meet community needs, and build them more efficiently.

 

"This is an opportunity to positively impact the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) community by recommending geospatial technology best practices and exposing AEC industry processes to the latest geospatial tools and products across Saudi Arabia," said Dr. Adel Bolbol Fernandez, Esri's regional public sector lead. "This will also support the transformation and development of geospatial practices and adoption of data standards within the region."

 

This MOU also aims to further enrich local contractors' knowledge of those GIS best practices, which play a key role in the nation's Vision 2030 for developing local businesses. Barakat also added that "this will empower local supply chains and place the Kingdom at the forefront of a crucial technology."

Killexams : Esri and Safe Software Collaborate for Successful CIM Interoperability Test

Utilities Can Share Data between Esri’s ArcGIS Utility Network and Different Systems with Unified Industry-Standard Format

REDLANDS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Electric utilities have long struggled to share data among their planning, asset, customer, and operational systems. The processes are often costly, inaccurate, time-consuming, and ineffective. Expanding the ability of electric utilities to work from one standard interface, the Common Information Model (CIM) is a single trusted data management, analysis, and alignment solution that can heavily leverage geographic information system (GIS) technology.

“While utilities have been exporting data from Esri’s ArcGIS software into the CIM standard for nearly a decade, this test illustrates that the technologies are aligned”

Supporting the industry as the global leader in GIS, Esri, together with partner Safe Software, has successfully participated in an interoperability test for the CIM.

“While utilities have been exporting data from Esri’s ArcGIS software into the CIM standard for nearly a decade, this test illustrates that the technologies are aligned,” said Bill Meehan, Esri director of electric utilities solutions, who led this effort along with Esri solution architect John Alsup.

Some of the systems and tools that utilities wish to interoperate using CIM include the following:

  • GIS
  • Energy management systems (EMS)
  • Advanced distribution management systems (ADMS)
  • Outage management systems (OMS)
  • Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA)
  • Simulation analysis programs like power flow, short circuit, stability, relay protection, lightning protection, and surge analysis

The interoperability test was part of the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) Grid Model Data Management (GMDM) initiative. It was held from June 14 to June 16 at EPRI’s Charlotte offices. UCA International Users Group, a not-for-profit corporation focused on assisting users and vendors, witnessed, monitored, and provided test direction and reporting services. “EPRI’s GMDM initiative creates an architecture that allows disparate technologies to share information in a neutral industry-standard format without building custom interfaces,” added Meehan.

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has adopted the CIM as an industry standard for electrical utility data interoperability since 2001.

Killexams : Esri Partners with Digital Earth Africa to Support Sustainable Growth
Esri Partners with Digital Earth Africa to Support Sustainable Growth

Climate change is compounding risks of food insecurity, displacement, and natural disasters across broad regions of the African continent, with vulnerable populations facing especially grave outcomes.

However, several countries in Africa are already innovating and driving the next big tech sector boom, with companies creating solutions to close social and economic gaps. To support local organizations that use data sciences to address these challenges, Esri—the global leader in location intelligence—has entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Digital Earth Africa.

Intended to encourage and support sustainability in governance and commerce, this partnership will create and launch technology solutions based on free, open-source satellite images and other forms of earth observation data. Using Esri’s geographic information system (GIS) software, African organizations will be able to analyze imagery data to discover patterns and predict future outcomes. This rich content will be accessible via the Africa GeoPortal, a comprehensive cloud-based platform that provides geographic data and imagery for Africa as well as solutions from Esri and its partners.

“We are proud to partner with Digital Earth Africa to make usable earth observation data more accessible,” said Jack Dangermond, Esri founder and president. “This agreement supports the important work for sustainable growth that is taking place across the continent.”

Once collected, satellite imagery must be processed so that it meets the standards of consistency and accuracy that are required for scientific investigation. Digital Earth Africa makes this data ready for analysis for the whole continent. GIS provides the tools and capabilities to create maps, apps, and more, easily turning these images into actionable data.

“We are producing decision-ready products with earth observation data,” said Dr. Thembi Xaba, Digital Earth Africa’s managing director. “Our platform and services enable African governments, industry, and decision-makers to track changes across the continent to equip users to better plan for the future.”

The partnership between Esri and Digital Earth Africa will make accessible four decades of imagery. The goal is to help create understanding and awareness of short- and long-term risk from flooding, drought, and soil and coastal erosion. The imagery and data layers can be used to monitor agriculture, forest cover, land masses, water availability and quality, and variations within human settlements.

All of this is accessible through the Africa GeoPortal with preconfigured apps and advanced tools for new and experienced users. Esri’s ArcGIS Online software, made available through the partnership, will help eliminate common barriers, such as cost and the need for technical skill, to accessing valuable earth observation data. As a community GIS platform, the Africa GeoPortal increases the discoverability and usage of content such as that from Digital Earth Africa through tools, data, and learning.
