What's new in ArcGIS Insights 2024.1

ArcGIS Insights combines data visualization and analysis to accelerate decision making. From interactive charts and maps to advanced analytics, Insights offers a wide array of capabilities to help you understand your data, answer important questions, and create interactive reports.

The Insights 2024.1 release (June 2024) includes running total on summary tables and lollipop chart symbols. Keep reading to learn more about these new features so you can try them out the next time you use Insights.

Running total

Running total is now supported as a field statistic for summary tables.

You can use running total to calculate how a numerical variable accumulates over time. For example, in a summary table of daily new infectious disease cases, calculating the running total provides the cumulative number of cases for each day.

Summary table sum compared to running total
Top: The number of new cases for each day of the month. Bottom: The cumulative number of cases for each day of the month.

Lollipop chart symbols

Bar charts, column charts, stacked bar charts, stacked column charts, and combo charts now support representing data as lollipops. Lollipops are useful for charts with a large number of unique values and charts with uniform values.
