Insights for ArcGIS in the Esri Showcase

Insights for ArcGIS is a web-based, data analytics workbench where you can explore spatial and non-spatial data, answer questions you didn’t know to ask, and quickly deliver powerful results. Use maps, charts, and tables to visualize data, apply advanced spatial analysis with a simple drag-and-drop, and begin telling your story like never before. Created the perfect process to analyze a dataset? Insights automatically records your analysis workflow as a model so you and others can run the analysis again to solve problems with alternative datasets.
