What's New in ArcGIS

Features

Create and publish your GIS information in the cloud with ease

Create and publish your GIS information in the cloud with ease

Cloud

  • Cloud and cloud services are central components of the ArcGIS system.
  • Tighter integration between ArcGIS for Desktop and ArcGIS Online allows easy access to collections of high-quality basemaps and GIS services from ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS for Server.
  • You can use ArcGIS for Desktop to create map services in ArcGIS Online as well as on ArcGIS for Server.
  • Simplified publishing of any GIS resource, such as maps, locators, globes, or geoprocessing tasks, to your cloud GIS servers. GIS services are then ready to use from any ArcGIS application or API.
  • Streamlined deployment of ArcGIS for Server on Amazon Web Services.
Efficiently and effectively share maps, imagery, geodatabases, and tools, as web services

Sharing

  • Upload GIS resources (data, maps, and tools) to ArcGIS Online. You can choose to keep them private, share them with groups, or share them with everyone.
  • Enhanced integration with ArcGIS Online including support for popups, bookmarks, changing basemaps, dynamic legends, and the ability to share via SMS, Facebook, and Twitter.
  • Every GIS resource, such as a map, geoprocessing model, locator, etc., that is shared through ArcGIS for Desktop is automatically analyzed to ensure that it is properly optimized for web applications.
  • GIS services can be used in any ArcGIS application, such as ArcGIS for Desktop and ArcGIS Explorer Online, in the free, configurable viewer apps for Flex and Silverlight, in the ArcGIS.com Viewer, or in custom web applications built with ArcGIS APIs for Flex, JavaScript, and Silverlight.
Easily access ready-to-use, authoritative basemaps from the Desktop

Access to Spatial Data

  • Directly access spatial database tables.
  • Better KML support.
  • Easier to work with GPS data.
Save time with improvements to map layouts, such as dynamic legends

Productivity

  • Enhanced cartography and map automation (labels, symbology, reporting, and data access).
  • New administration tools for managing enterprise geodatabases.
  • Improvements to map layout (dynamic legend, scale bars, and North arrows).
  • Spatial search for data and maps.
  • Editor tracking—record information about who made changes to datasets and when the edits were performed.
  • New editing tools for integrating datasets and working with shared boundaries.
Switch basemaps on the fly and in the field

Mobile

  • Access ArcGIS for Android directly from Google Play and the Amazon App store.
  • Build native apps using ArcGIS Runtime SDKs for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.
  • Display, edit, and share intelligent maps across iOS, Android, and Windows Phone platforms.
  • Map offline and update GIS data with high accuracy GPS using ArcGIS for Windows Mobile.
  • Simplify offline deployments to rugged devices using the Mobile Project Center.
  • ArcGIS for Windows Mobile improvements including simplified data collection, support for geodatabase attachments, and waypoint navigation.
  • Enhanced integration with ArcGIS Online.
  • Offline capabilities for iOS and Android including data collection, routing, and analysis (coming in Q4 2012).
New ArcGIS Runtime lets you build custom solutions

Developers

  • Use Python scripting to write add-ins for ArcGIS for Desktop applications.
  • New ArcGIS Runtime SDKs for WPF and Java for building custom applications (native 64-bit with power API and simple deployment model).
  • Build focused native applications using the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android.
  • Enhanced WPF API for developing connected and disconnected Windows applications.
  • New native Java SDK for creating applications on Windows or Linux.
New analytical tools provide new insights

Analysis

  • Geoprocessing packages allow sharing of analysis and workflows.
  • Geodesic buffer that accounts for the distortion of projected space which results in exceptionally accurate measurement.
  • Integration of time into spatial statistics (hot spot analysis with space and time).
  • New cluster analysis technique (feature attributes and optional spatial/temporal constraints).
  • New exploratory regression tool for finding the best regression models.
  • Areal interpolation supports the frequent need to transfer data from one set of geographic areas to a set of different geographic areas.
  • Empirical Bayesian Kriging (EBK) tool simplifies the interpolation workflow without sacrificing the quality of the prediction results.
  • New tools work with GPS and geotagged photos.
Manage massive Lidar datasets

Imagery

  • Simple creation of image products and height measurement from sensor data.
  • Automated image enhancements for color correction and image interpretation.
  • Improved, easy-to-use georeferencing capabilities.
  • Ability to manage and serve massive Lidar (LAS) datasets.
  • Extended server-side image processing.
Manage and provision servers more quickly

Administration

  • New administration tools for enterprise geodatabases.
  • New server administration (REST based) allows you to script common tasks.
  • New and improved ArcGIS for Server web administrator—faster and more intuitive.
  • New ArcGIS for Server architecture for faster site deployment—manage and provision new servers more quickly.
