World Cup 2022 Planning with Esri and other Government GIS News

Engineering consultancy Atkins has helped establish a new government office in the 2022 FIFA World Cup host nation of Qatar using systems based on Esri mapping software.

Why Esri?

[Daniel] Monk [consultant] said that Esri was chosen because it is a proven technology, very scalable and able to accommodate the project’s increasing demand.

The New South Wales State Emergency Services (NSW SES) has launched a new mapping system that allows volunteers on the ground to instantly share real-time information needed by incident management teams to coordinate rescue operations.
It's pretty raw ArcGIS Online.
Last month, Transport for London announced the winners of its accessible app competition, and the judges selected this smart update by 232 Studios and Ian Hamilton, designed for folks who can't see the spectrum, as the winner.
