Address Locator “Geocoding service”

I've already created an Address Locator sucessfuly and published it as a Geocoding service, but I need to verify that its working from the rest since its not working from my web mapping application is there a method to do this ?

The answer is provided in the following screenshot

In Step number 3 " choose a locator" browse and select the published geocoding service from your server.

Volunteered geographic information (VGI) has been studied extensively within various contexts, however, generally focusing on isolated aspects of data. Therefore, we still need to advance the structured knowledge of the mechanisms that affect and support its creation. This article aims to contribute to the integrated study of VGI systems (VGIS) in order to enhance design processes that lead to a more systematic and efficient VGI management. We define VGIS, their main components, and general architectures. Then, we use the service blueprinting technique to conduct the case study of several systems, identifying system actions to find the processes and technologies forming the different functional components of VGIS: elements of the technological infrastructure that implement diverse processes to facilitate participation and data management. Integrated in the data collection component, we also propose a typology of crowdsourcing tasks that—coupled with the functional components—establishes a foundation for VGIS research and design. We characterize these components, arguing that they are necessary in the development of VGIS, however, there is still a need for a more detailed study of the flow of processes and subprocesses and how they work under the criteria of different types of projects to continue facilitating their design.

Managing scientific data is essential for meeting our mission

Good data management improves decision making
The data we acquire, maintain, and analyze are important assets towards the Service’s goals. Making decisions based on reliable and accessible data improves our conservation outcomes, as well as the Service’s scientific credibility.

Good data management saves time and resources
Careful upfront planning ensures that data are quickly converted into usable conservation information and easily available to inform future analyses and decisions.

We are already transforming our data management practices
Improvements in data management in the Service have long been led by grassroots efforts from staff who recognize these benefits. Recent policies have led to the National Data Initiative, which will offer support, tools, and resources and help foster this shift in the Service culture.

Orion Group Partners With Leading Commercial HVAC Service Provider, Texas Chiller Systems

SAN ANTONIO--( BUSINESS WIRE )--Orion Group (“Orion”), a commercial facility services platform backed by Alpine Investors, today announced that it has partnered with Texas Chiller Systems (“TCS”), a leading commercial HVAC services company based in San Antonio, Texas. TCS is Orion’s second investment in the commercial HVAC industry. Orion plans to build a national platform by partnering with exceptional founder-owned facility services businesses and providing resources to help fuel their next chapters of growth.

Texas Chiller Systems joins Oklahoma City-based Jackson Mechanical Service as the second Orion partner company. TCS was founded in 2006 by Robert Uhl, Mike Andreason and Chris Finger. After a combined seven decades in the industry, Robert, Mike and Chris founded TCS to build a company that treated technicians like family and delivered exceptional service.

Program requirements

The MGIS program is designed to allow you to achieve a thorough understanding of geographical information concepts and theory, and gain exposure to research and application specialties.

Collaborative multidisciplinary scientific research, industry association participation, and community-based research contributes to the recognition of the program as a significant contributor to the local geomatics community. Graduates possess practical geospatial expertise and applications knowledge, in addition to professional skills valued by industry. Students without a strong GIS or remote sensing background will build their spatial analysis skills and experience as part of their program.

The MGIS Program structure consists of the following elements:

  • The program is comprised of 10 courses five of which are mandatory, and five optional courses. Two of the mandatory courses are based on an individual research project.
  • The optional courses may be taken within the Geography Department or in other Departments or Faculties on campus, such as Engineering, Management, Biology or Geology.
  • The two research-project courses will focus on a single topic of the student's choice, decided in consultation with their supervisor. The first course will be a critical literature review of the topic, and the second will consist of the actual research and implementation.
  • The final papers from the two courses are combined into a cohesive manuscript that fully documents the project and results.
  • The document will be the basis for a comprehensive oral exam at the end of the student’s program, to be administered by an examining committee. The exam will also focus on material from core courses.

The MGIS program may be completed on a full-time or part-time basis.


MGIS students are required to take 10 courses in their program. These 10 courses must include the five core courses (see below). The remaining five options will be chosen by the student and their supervisor, and will generally either build on the student's GIS skills or enhance their knowledge of their application specialty.

Core Courses: The five mandatory "core" courses that each student in the MGIS program must take are:

  • Geog 647: Advanced Research and Applications in GIS
  • Geog 633: Research and Applications on Remote Sensing
  • Geog 639: Advanced Spatial Analysis and Modelling
  • Geog 681: GIS Project: Theoretical Issues
  • Geog 683: GIS Project: Application

Upgrade Courses: Students without a strong GIS or remote sensing background will use their option courses to build their spatial analysis skills and experience.
