From suggesting how many steps we should walk in a day, to predicting the future price of our home, machine learning (ML) is becoming an integral part of our lives. ML is a new approach to understanding our universe based on exposing data-driven relationships and predicting outcomes without empirical models.
Stay tuned for more info from the Esri team on new workflows to produce local, higher-resolution 3D meshes and ultimately EMUs from NOAA data or your own data. Watch this space and the Esri Ocean GIS Forum recaps for more! We also have a growing list of exciting use cases of the EMUs for a range of scientific and resource management applications…(Show moreShow less)

Our Esri Applications Prototype Lab has been experimenting with use of EMU data in their 3D Fences/Curtain tool. See some neat results on YouTube. For more information on 3D Fences and to download the free tool, see http://esriurl.com/3dfence. And note that a new version of this tool that works with both Arcmap and ArcGIS Pro is now available.
See our new Esri Ecological Marine Units story map with material from our many talks introducing the project, as well as from our peer-reviewed journal article in Oceanography. Thanks to Keith VanGraafeiland for creating this great resource! Visit the story map at esriurl.com/emustory or click on the image below.
Glad you are enjoying the story map. Public availability to the scenes is via the story map itself. Please contact the story map author, Keith VanGraafeiland <KVanGraafeiland@esri.com> for more information
