It is with great pleasure that we congratulate Hamish Kingsbury on winning the 2015 NZ Esri Young Scholar Award. Hamish's efforts as an intern at Interpret over the last four months has given him the opportunity to showcase his learnings in a submission for this award.  As the winner of this award, Hamish will attend the 2015 Esri Education GIS Conference and the 2015 Esri International User Conference in San Diego, in July.

Hamish’s submission outlined the project he has been working on entitled Examining the Feasibility of using Road Safety Data as a Factor in Routing. His project utilised the ArcGIS platform to create a dedicated web application to determine if routing using safety is a viable option. The judges commented on how impressed they were with the innovation of this project, stating it could have huge benefits in terms of improving communication and decision making.  They were also impressed with the comprehensive use of numerous applications within the ArcGIS Platform and the development of a website which brought the whole project to life.

Hamish presented his findings in a poster format and this can be viewed here.

Adding a Geocoder to ArcGIS Online if you do not have a default basemap gallery configured

Recently we had a problem trying to add a new geocoding service to our ArcGIS Online Organisation which was hosted on one of our ArcGIS Servers. ArcGIS Online would allow the adding of a new geocoder under utility services, but once saved the page would hang.

AGOL Geocoder

We tested different user accounts, group settings and hosting the geocoder on different servers (10.2 and 10.3). We narrowed the problem down to our ArcGIS Online account. Eagle was able to add our geocoder to their account, and we were able to add it to a clients ArcGIS Online account. We were however unable to add a geocoder hosted by Eagle to our ArcGIS Online account which confirmed an issue with Interpret's ArcGIS Online account.

After troubleshooting with Eagle and Esri the problem was solved by changing the basemaps (My Organization > Edit Settings > Map) to the default Esri Basemaps (We had custom basemaps setup as our default basemap gallery).

AGOL Basemaps

Tweaking this to the Esri defaults allowed us to add and save the geocoder succesfuly to our ArcGIS Online account. Once satisfied it was working we then changed the basemap galley back to the custom settings we had set originally.
