Tech Spotlight: Supercharge Your Decision-Making with These 3 Apps

June 13, 2017

ArcGIS 10.5 takes spatial analytics to the next level. With new and enhanced capabilities, this release makes it easier for you to integrate data from almost any source, including sensors, devices and social media feeds, as well as analyze large amounts of data – in minutes. While there are many new apps in 10.5, here are three apps that are sure to give your decision-making a boost.

Insights for ArcGIS: Interactively explore your data

Insights for ArcGIS marks a milestone in the evolution of GIS technology. It enables interactive analysis and visual exploration of both spatial and tabular data, allowing you to discover the secrets your data holds.

Using a simple drag-and-drop technique, you can gain useful insights into your data. Export your data into maps, charts, graphics and tables that are all interconnected as cards, which can be easily synchronized.

Discover new insights about your data through linked cards, which allow you to click on a chart and see related data light up on another card.

You can explore data by type, volume and density to see if patterns change over time. This spatial analytics is valuable across several industries – from retail for sales performance analysis, to law enforcement for identifying crime patterns.

Insights makes analysis easy through guided workflows that help you answer common spatial analysis  questions. The app also captures your workflow and records it as a model that you can reuse in future analyses. Insights connects to enterprise databases such as SQL and SAP HANA, geodatabases and Excel spreadsheets. You can also add demographic data from ArcGIS for contextual analysis.

 ArcGIS GeoAnalytics Server: Analyze massive amounts of data in minutes

ArcGIS GeoAnalytics Server is specifically designed for fast space-time analysis on massive vector and tabular data. You can answer difficult questions involving large volumes of data in a few minutes or hours. It allows you to work with larger volumes of data and gain a deeper understanding of patterns and trends that matter.

GeoAnalytics Server provides analysis results quickly along with customized workflows and built-in tools to make sense of large amounts of data.

With GeoAnalytics Server, you gain further insight into your existing geospatial and tabular data by viewing your business data in a spatial and temporal context. Find hot spots, analyze patterns, aggregate and summarize data, run buffers and visualize results.

Now, you can harness the computing power of multiple servers rather than relying on a single machine. Additionally, you can use GeoAnalytics with ArcGIS GeoEvent Server, so you can analyze real-time data from various sources, including sensor networks, point of sale systems and Internet of Things devices.

ArcGIS GeoEvent Server: Leverage real-time mapping and analytics

Know what’s happening with your assets, as it happens. ArcGIS GeoEvent Server can track field workforce and assets that constantly change location such as vehicles, aircraft and vessels, as well as stationary assets such as weather and environmental monitoring sensors. It provides real-time situational awareness, helping you to effectively coordinate field activities.

When an asset enters a geofence, GeoEvent Server sends an alert to those who need it, so they can take immediate action.

GeoEvent Server allows you to connect to real-time data streams and update features with the latest information as it occurs. You can perform real-time analytics on the data streams using filters and processors to focus on the most important information. When interesting events occur, GeoEvent Server sends you and your team updates and alerts, so you can react and make smarter decisions faster.

Streaming data from GeoEvent Server can be used by the entire ArcGIS system to bring everyday GIS applications to life. It enables the integration of streaming data into an enterprise GIS by updating feature services and other online content. These features and content can then be consumed in web maps and viewers such as Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS (or any ArcGIS viewer) to display the most current information on events as they unfold.
