ArcGIS Knowledge Sessions

Connect the Dots with ArcGIS Knowledge: An Introduction to Graph and Link Analysis

Some of the biggest challenges organizations face today are data fusion and discovery: how to quickly find the right information and analyze it in the right context. This session will introduce ArcGIS Knowledge, the knowledge graph and graph analysis capability for ArcGIS Enterprise and ArcGIS Pro that makes it easy to create, discover, and explore connections in data. Learn how a knowledge graph works, discover how ArcGIS Knowledge empowers link analysis workflows, and explore new capabilities for working with connected data in link charts and maps.

Presented by Ty Fitzpatrick and Megan Banaski

Tuesday, Feb 7  | 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM EST | Salon I
Wednesday, Feb 8  | 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST | Room 152 A

ArcGIS Knowledge: Beyond the Basics of Graph Data and Link Analysis

Learn how ArcGIS Knowledge can help integrate new graph analytics along with existing spatial analysis methods to more deeply understand how and why things are related. Especially if you are familiar with link analysis or ArcGIS Pro, this session will take you through an end-to-end workflow for integrating data from multiple sources into a knowledge graph, deriving real-world relationships from spatial analysis, and applying new tools for analyzing direct and indirect connections in the data.

Sessions with ArcGIS Knowledge + Other Products

Working with Unstructured Text Data in ArcGIS

In this session, we’ll explore analysis tools for working with unstructured text across ArcGIS. Come learn about the new Text Analysis toolset, part of the GeoAI toolbox, which is designed to work with unstructured text data using Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques. You’ll be introduced to unstructured text data and its intersection with GIS and gain an understanding of how entity extraction can augment and add context to GIS data to enable workflows like link analysis. Lastly, we’ll explore how we can extend and automate unstructured analysis workflows using ArcGIS LocateXT, ArcGIS Knowledge, and the ArcGIS API for Python.

Presented by Parker Hornstein and Amy Clarke
