web GIS features in ArcGIS 10.2


A new pattern for delivering GIS capabilities, Web GIS facilitates the implementation of ArcGIS as a platform in your organization.

  • Extend the reach of your GIS resources to your entire organization
  • Enable more people to easily build maps that work seamlessly across different devices
  • Reduce the need to create custom applications with included ready-to-use applications and application templates
  • Integrate GIS more easily with other business systems such as IBM Cognos, MicroStrategy, and SAP
  • Access vast collections of ready-to-use maps (basemaps, demographic, terrain, etc.) and GIS services
  • Use Web GIS as a content management system to organize, secure, and facilitate access to geographic information products

Real-Time GIS

Transform your everyday mapping applications into frontline decision apps with two new products: GeoEvent Extension for Server, a new extension for ArcGIS for Server, and Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS, a ready-to-go app that allows you to create operational views of live data.

  • Connect to virtually any sensor or streaming data source, including social media
  • Process the data in real time so that you can extract only the relevant events that you want to pay attention to
  • Monitor multiple, dynamic events while automatically updating your maps and databases and sending alerts to asset operators and key decision makers
  • Reveal the telemetry of your real-time data via maps, lists, charts, gauges, and more, based on your web maps and services

Business System Apps in ArcGIS 10.2

Business System Apps

Add Esri Maps to your business systems, including IBM Cognos, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Office, SharePoint, SAP Business Objects and MicroStrategy.

Esri Maps for IBM Cognos, Esri Maps for SAP Business Objects, and Esri Maps for MicroStrategy will be updated to include new drawing, measuring, and routing tools, and more. Esri Business Analyst for Desktop and Esri Business Analyst for Server will include the Esri 2014/2019 US Demographics data.

Enterprise Authentication

Configure your online organization so that your users can sign in using their existing enterprise logins (the user name and password they already use within your organization). In addition to convenience, this new authentication capability will allow ArcGIS Online organizational account administrators to

  • Greatly simplify administration by eliminating the need to maintain multiple user credentials for separate applications that people in the organization access.
  • Reduce security complexity by removing the necessity to replicate databases of user credentials for separate applications and systems.
  • Better secure enterprise resources and users' personal information (which stays with the organization, not with ArcGIS).
