Esri U.S. Demographics Data Update

The June 2021 release will include the new 2021/2026 Esri U.S. demographic data updates. This dataset includes updated demographic data, consumer spending, Tapestry segmentation (with updated names), market potential, business locations and summary data, and updated Esri basemaps.

With the data, we will also include a new capability to update data for custom infographics.

Simplified Workflows

Another key update will include simplified workflows for Color-Coded Maps, Smart Map Search, and Suitability Analysis, so you can get to your insights faster. Each workflow will include a default variables list that an ArcGIS Administrator can pre-define for your entire organization to use.

Simplified Workflows
Once you launch the Color-coded map workflow (left), simply click on one of the pre-populated Popular variables. One-click launches the map and data filters (right).
Popular Variables Setting
As an ArcGIS Administrator, you can customize the Popular variables list from Preferences > Maps settings.

If your organization has a common list of variables, this can be accessed as soon as an individual user logs in and can be updated by the ArcGIS Administrator as data needs change. For individual users, this enhancement will make workflows much faster and with fewer clicks.

Advanced Bundle Product Release

A new product bundle is also planned for the June 2021 release. Going forward, new users will have the option to purchase the Advanced bundle. The new Advanced bundle will provide access to ArcGIS Business Analyst Web App Advanced, ArcGIS Business Analyst Pro (extension to ArcGIS Pro), and ArcGIS Pro Basic via subscription to Online data.

Improved ArcGIS Dashboards Workflow

The past March 2021 release included a new workflow to integrate infographics to ArcGIS Dashboards. Per numerous requests, this June release will include an enhancement to allow multiple infographics to show up in ArcGIS Dashboards. We hope this makes sharing your insights even easier.

The upcoming June release will include the following key improvements:


Other Data Updates

Other key data updates will include the Michael Bauer Research data for eight new countries and regions and a new geography scale in Mexico, and updates to Esri France, Esri Australia, and U.S. traffic points and business locations data.
