New at the UC 2016 Map Gallery: ArcGIS Pro Interactive Map Wall

 ArcGIS Pro Interactive Map Wall

New at this year’s User Conference Map Gallery will be the ArcGIS Pro Interactive Map Wall. The Map Gallery has been a long time feature of the User Conference that is dedicated to showcasing user maps. The new ArcGIS Pro Interactive Map Wall extends the format of the ArcGIS Pro map category from paper to electronic format.

What is ArcGIS Pro Interactive Map Wall?

The Map Wall is a 3×3 grid of monitors, each monitor showing ArcGIS Pro projects authored by users. The user projects use 2D and 3D data. The projects use the ArcGIS Pro Animation functionality that became available in ArcGIS Pro 1.2 to fly-through data, drawing focus and attention to interesting areas and details of the project.

Conference attendees will also be able to use Pro to interact with each user project to look at interesting features, local data and to see how each project is designed and constructed.

The users that submitted their ArcGIS Pro projects for this category also submitted paper maps which will be on display in the Map Gallery.

As with the theme and goal of the Map Gallery, the Map Wall highlights and focuses on real projects created by ArcGIS users. It shows what our users are doing with their data and how they deliver their spatial data, ideas, information and associated content with ArcGIS Pro.

Technology behind Interactive Map WallThe Interactive Map Wall uses the ArcGIS Pro Animation functionality to show user data and projects in a new way. The new electronic format and Animation functionally take full advantage of the incredible capabilities of the ArcGIS Pro rendering engine to provide a fluid, smooth, high-end user experience. These capabilities are available on properly configured physical and virtual desktops.

The 3×3 grid of monitors is powered by virtualization technology driven by Nvidia GRID M60 graphics cards. This is another example of successfully virtualizing the most demanding ArcGIS Pro projects.
