ArcGIS GeoEvent Server

What is the ArcGIS GeoEvent Extension for Server?

Maybe you’ve heard, there’s a new extension for ArcGIS for Server Standard and Advanced available at ArcGIS 10.2. It’s called ArcGIS GeoEvent Extension for Server and it expands the capabilities of ArcGIS allowing you to incorporate real-time data into your decision-support GIS applications.

The GeoEvent Extension provides connectors for common sensors and streaming data sources including in-vehicle GPS devices, mobile devices, and social media providers. You can efficiently detect and focus on the most interesting events, locations, and thresholds in your operations by applying real-time filters, processing, and analytic capabilities. You’re able to monitor your most valuable features on land, sea, and in the air and have key personnel automatically alerted immediately when conditions meet specified criteria.

GeoEvent Extension Connectors

The GeoEvent Extension provides a number of Input Connectors and Output Connectors out-of-the-box with additional connectors available on the ArcGIS GeoEvent GalleryPartner Gallery, and User Community Gallery. The connectors available on the galleries allow you to enable the GeoEvent Extension to handle additional types of sensors or feeds. Many connectors have their associated source code available on Esri’s GitHub. With access to the source code for these select connectors, you can easily modify them to meet your specific requirements using the GeoEvent Extension Software Development Kit (SDK). Plus, if you cannot find a connector for the real-time data you want to integrate, you can create a completely new connector using the GeoEvent Extension SDK.

Common GeoEvent Extension Use Cases
