HAZUS is a FEMA created spatial modeling extension to ArcGIS that has modules for earthquake, wind and flood loss estimation. In this interview we talk a little bit about the tool and the HAZUS conference that was concurrent with the ESRI UC.
For those of you who missed out on the live show in San Diego or for those who want to relive the memories (bad lighting and all) check out the video of the show (aka Episode 160). You can download the video here in its full 137 MB grandness. Thanks again to Elvin for participating and to everyone who found the room in the farthest corner of the SDCC just to see us yammer
Since the file is fairly large I will not be placing it in the VSTV feed.
Frank had a chance to talk to AccuWeather (http://www.accuweather.com/gis) about their data solutions.
Frank had a chance to talk to GIS, Inc (http://gis-services.com) about their upcoming ArcGIS Server solutions.
We are closing out the conference then heading back west. Since I don’t have anything for you I will share a video from Paige and Keith. Talk to you tomorrow.
We grabbed Brian Flood in one of the few lulls he had at the Arc2Earth booth to talk about the product and their upcoming foray into the cloud.
This guy has been at the UC all three years we have been and he definitely falls under the term ‘unique’. This year he was back to this armored attire after last years kilt. I am not sure the video truly does him justice. A nod to Dave S for posting this video.
Frank and Jesse talk a bit about Monday’s Plenary and Map Gallery at the ESRI User Conference.

Final blog reminder that we will have our second annual AVSP Live! show at the ESRI User Conference TODAY, Tuesday, August 5th. We will be starting around 5:30 in Room 13 of the San Diego Convention Center. Room 13 is on the Mezzanine level which means if you come from the main hall through the Sails/Map Gallery then turn left (Marina side of the building) and head down the short escalator (or steps) then to your right.
We will be joined by Elvin Slavik of the Maptel/ArcPad team to talk about mobile GIS and we will be going through some conference and general news (eg Geofacture/MapCommons).
We, and our pile of SWAG (t-shirts and such), hope you can make it!
