Explore the infographics gallery in ArcGIS Business Analyst

ArcGIS Business Analyst provides unique, presentation-ready infographic templates that you can use to share key data indicators for a variety of purposes, audiences, and industries. You may be familiar with Standard infographics including What’s in My Community? which groups places in a neighborhood into civic themes and At Risk Population Profile that supports businesses evaluating the impact of COVID-19 on their community.

Did you know that there are additional premade templates in the infographics gallery? The gallery is a collection of infographic templates designed for specialized goals, some of which use premium data sources from global partners such as Esri Japan and Esri France. These templates are open to enhancement based on feedback.

Templates in the gallery are updated with each vintage release. The templates that appear in the gallery depend on which data source you have selected. New templates are added to the gallery as they become available and are added to the most current vintage.

Template migration

Multiple vintages of data are available in the gallery. Users can migrate between vintages to ensure that the infographic template is using the most up-to-date variables. You can choose a particular data source using the Click for data source selections button in the Data source drop-down menu.

Changing the data source will result in an updated gallery collection that has templates using that specific vintage. For instance, the template Key Facts 6 Part Gauge is available in the USA Esri 2023 data source, but not in USA Esri 2024. To run Key Facts 6 Part Gauge using Esri 2024 data, click Open to open the template, then click Save to add it to the My templates tab. Then, click Download this template as a file.

When you add the template, you may get a notification that the template uses variables that are not available in the currently selected data source. Clicking Yes will replace the 2023 variables with 2024 variables. Once you give the template a new name and save it, it’s now available for you to run from My templates.

Premium data sources

Business Analyst Web App is supported in six different languages, including English, French, Japanese, German, Portuguese, and Spanish. This allows the numeric and currency formats in infographics to automatically adjust depending on the language setting in your browser. We are continuing to work with our global partners to add translated versions of these templates in the future for wider use. These international templates represent an exciting opportunity for us to extend support for users all over the world in multiple languages.
