Insights for ArcGIS at the 2017 Esri User Conference

With the 2017 Esri User Conference just around the corner, please make sure to visit the Insights team at SDCC – Exhibit Hall B1. Insights for ArcGIS, version 2.0 has just released with more capabilities such as new chart types, additional database support, significant performance gains, and more… You’ll want to see it in action and learn all about its new and powerful abilities for discovering exploratory spatial analysis. See our “What’s New” blog for more detailed information on Insights for ArcGIS version 2.0.

Insights for ArcGIS is a web-based, data analytics workbench where you can explore spatial and non-spatial data to perform iterative and exploratory data analysis. With a drag-and-drop interface, you can answer questions, and quickly deliver powerful results using data from ArcGIS, Excel spreadsheets, and business databases. Learn how to create maps, charts, and tables to visualize and tell your story like never before using advanced algorithmic spatial analysis with minimal GIS knowledge.

Stop by and meet the team, ask questions, and share your feedback. We look forward to seeing you at UC 2017!

Here is a list of Insights for ArcGIS events and workshops at the UC:

We would like to personally invite you to attend our Insights social occurring at The Shout! House on Tuesday, July 11th at 7:30 pm, meet the Insights team and others that share interest in all things ArcGIS and Insights for more casual conversation.

With Insights for ArcGIS, you can quickly discover the secrets your data holds. Insights works alongside and takes advantage of other leading ArcGIS products. Visualize, analyze, and tell your story like never before. Insights works alongside and takes advantage of other leading ArcGIS products. This presentation will focus on the basic configurations requirements and usage of Insights for ArcGIS


Insights for ArcGIS is a new user experience for analysis available at ArcGIS 10.5 that focuses on simpler ways to work with your data to answer questions and share results including visualization first, drag and drop analytics and, on the fly filtering and aggregations. Insights for ArcGIS is designed to make interactive and exploratory analysis fast and intuitive so you can gain understanding from your data in a spatial context. Learn techniques in wrangling your data for analysis, best practices in working with Insights and its analysis capabilities and more.


In this session, we will focus on advanced topics in working with Insights for ArcGIS at 10.5 to include understanding the architecture, getting to know patterns and best practices, as well as tips and tricks. To get the most from this session, it would be best to attend the Introduction session as a prerequisite first.


The workshop will introduce key spatial approaches for solving real world problems using ArcGIS analysis techniques to make better decisions. During the session we will present several standardized workflows for conducting spatial analysis. Following the workflows, we will translate the spatial problems into spatial techniques, and demonstrate different analytical tools in ArcGIS for Desktop to find an appropriate solution for the problem. The workshop will include overlay analysis,
proximity analysis, and surface analysis, with use cases and software demonstrations. It serves as an overview and introduction to spatial analysis using ArcGIS for Desktop including the new desktop application ArcGIS Pro.

    • Tuesday, July 11: 10:15-11:30 AM, SDCC – Room 17 B
