What’s New in Business Analyst Web App (April 2018)

The April update of Business Analyst Web App is here! This update brings several enhancements including the new options for using competitive layers in Suitability Analysis, more streamlined experience with ArcGIS Online for finding and adding ArcGIS content, and improvements for the Build Infographics and New Comparison Reports workflows.

Here are the highlights:

Use New Options for Competitor Locations in Suitability Analysis

Optimize suitability analysis with improved competitive landscape input around your sites. Select from these options when choosing how the competitor layer contributes to the analysis:

Compare Locations Visually and Interactively

Create and organize custom comparison reports more easily. Use a good performing location as a benchmark to evaluate other locations against it. Create multi-variable charts and more informative visualizations in just a few clicks. Learn more.

Add ArcGIS Content More Efficiently

Easily find and add content from ArcGIS Online including the maps and layers you own, from groups, organization, and Living Atlas, as well as publicly available. Use various filtering, sorting, and search options and get a content browsing experience consistent with what it is in ArcGIS Online. Learn more.

You will also notice that the More Maps button is replaced by a Basemaps icon to provide an easier way for changing basemaps. The experience of adding data from ArcGIS Online will continue to be available from the Add Data menu along with other options for bringing data in the BA Web App.

Create Custom Variables from Your Own Data

Calculate derived variables from your own data variables which are brought in using the Custom Data Setup workflow. For example, let’s say you have quarterly sales variables (e.g. Q1 sales, Q2 sales) added in BA Web as custom data. You will be able to create a custom variable by adding Q1 and Q2 sales to determine the sales for the first half of the year or by subtracting Q2 sales from Q1 to determine quarterly sales change.

Use More Customization Options in Infographics
