Esri UC 2014 Plenary Session

July 16th, 2014 by Susan Smith

Common Platform themes addressed include:


In next few months will see releases in the area of apps, and the ArcGIS complete platform.

Spatial Analytics

Space Time Analytics will be offered, including improved modeling, integration of flow visualization, and putting more analytic tools into ArcGIS Online.

Real Time

More streaming data, sensors, spatial analysis, big data, and OSIsoft integration will be offered.


3D will be brought across the entire platform.


Geodesign encompasses two major engineering efforts – geoplanning, which allows data to be analyzed, designed on top of and evaluated quickly. Workflow is also being supported in CityEngine, Esri’s product for Geodesign.

This technology promises to become pervasive and not limited to the architectural community.


The Living Atlas of the World is a resource that is ready to use with datasets made up by many contributors, with some services. The ability to manage, analyze and serve intelligent imagery is now readily available.


Geoenrichment is a new term and an online service for appending map data to your data. You can add landscape, business or other data.


While we have heard much on apps before, with the new release GIS Apps are included with online, server or desktop products.

Business System Apps provide simple mapping and location analysis for SAP and self service, Users can leverage geoenrichment and extensive demographic data,

Web App Builders allow you to make your own web apps with a cross platform framework that can run on anything. These are easily configurable, and can be used on a server or online. Users across an entire enterprise can build their own apps.

Open Data allows the easy dissemination of geospatial and tabular data. Data can be streamed out as a shapefile, KML or any format.

Interoperability Data and systems should be interoperable, and support standards and industry formats and models. “This is a process, not an event; you have to keep working at it,” said Mr. Dangermond.

ArcGIS is an integrated and interdependent system that starts with the desktop and provides mapping, visualization, editing, analysis, enhances image processing, and provides full PKI for security.

Esri will announce ArcGIS Pro, a new offering that works side by side with ArcMap. It has modern intuitive interface, 64 bit supports multiple layouts, 2 and 3D environment. Users can make a map on the desktop and turn it into a web map immediately. The same can be done with tasks and projects.

ArcGIS Pro will be used for areas such as public health and analysis. It will allow users to do 2D and 3D simultaneously, and transform data into 3D, render instant 3D features, and drape realistic building textures across land features, as well as render a realistic town scene on-the-fly dynamically. With preset layers users will be able to use a gallery of features such as trees, streets, water and 3D editing tools.

Each image in ArcGIS Pro contains a huge amount of detail. With layer content users can dynamically switch to different views.

Imagery layers can be instantly changed. Lidar can be used for imagery on-the-fly in ArcGIS functions can be chained together.

    I wish that Mr Dangermond, stops talking about such heart-attracting speeches regarding how earth is dying, etc.. It is time for ESRI to have look into the homeless people scattered all over San Diego and probably start some human projects.
    I have said that to them (ESRI) and of course they did not reply.

  2. Susan Smith says:

    I think the messages about global warming and climate change are valuable, however, it would be good to also mention some of the more human projects that are taking place in GIS, around the globe. To their credit Esri did have keynote speaker last year who really seemed to represent the inner city poverty mindset (Los Angeles), and how to rise out of it. He also did a video clip at this year’s. Thanks for writing!
