The March 2019 update to the ArcGIS Business Analyst Web App has arrived! Here are the key highlights of this release:
Better, Professional Infographics at Your Fingertips
We’ve added seven brand-new visually stunning starter infographic templates to the Business Analyst Web App to help you summarize your data and analysis. All of the available infographic templates are easily customizable to reflect your company’s logo, branding, and variables of interest. Whether you are trying to gain an understanding of the employment opportunities or health statistics for an area, the infographics in the Business Analyst Web App have you covered.
The following are the infographic templates that have been added with this release.
- Commute Profile: Information about how population 16+ travels to work.

Get More Out of Comparison Reports
Interactively compare sites easier than ever using informative benchmark tables, beautiful charts, and more in the new Comparison Reports workflow.
The old Comparison Reports workflow has been removed with this release, but there’s no need to worry! Its replacement, the new Comparison Reports workflow, is already available in the application. The new workflow gives you all the old Comparison Report features and so much more.
You can read more about how to migrate to new Comparison Reports here.
Access Crime Data for Reporting
Use a new Esri Crime Summary report that helps you understand crime statistics for seven major categories of personal and property crime. You can now use the crime data in custom reports, infographics, and comparison reports to classify crimes by local demographics and type of incident.
Add Nearby Location Counts and Summaries
ArcGIS Business Analyst Web App users can now summarize attribute values in Nearby tables. When running infographics with a Nearby table, click the gear icon, choose the attributes that you want to summarize, and see the results added at the bottom of the table. Optionally, you will be able to choose to display the Nearby table as a summary count in its own panel.
Modern Symbology for Your Mapping Needs
Hundreds of new map markers are now available to symbolize locations the way you want. Start with vector graphics and color them to present locations with the best visualization. In the example below, we represented coffee shops with coffee cups as the symbology.
Combine Dot Density Visualization with Color-Coded Maps
Business Analyst Web App users now have a new option to display dot density maps with a color-coded background. You can view one variable represented in the dot density style in the foreground and a second variable with a color ramp background map. In the example below, we chose to show the total population using dot density mapping shaded by a color-coded background map of median household income.
Use Top Consumer Segments for Canada
Determine the top three consumer segments for any area in Canada using PRIZM5 segmentation data. Simply add the PRIZM5 segments panel in your infographics and run it for any area.
Use Web Layers Directly in Reporting Workflows
Business Analyst Web App users can now bring in location layers from ArcGIS and run reports, infographics, and more without having to convert them into sites. With the new Setup layer option, you can use services already published in ArcGIS in Suitability Analysis, Infographics and reports without the need to duplicate locations. The Setup layer feature also allows pre-filtering by attribute and by map extent.
