What's new in ArcGIS Insights 2022.3

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 2022.3 release (November 2022) includes map labels, layer effects, and updates to data engineering. Keep reading to learn more about these new features so you can try them out the next time you use Insights.

Map labels

Labels can now be added for features on maps using Single symbol, Unique values, Counts and amounts (size), or Counts and amounts (color). Labels can be configured to change the font, placement, visible range, and halo effect. Overlapping labels can also be removed to reduce clutter on maps with dense or small features.

Layer effects

Bloom and drop shadow effects are now supported for all map types except link maps. Layer effects are used to create eye-catching maps and draw attention to specific features. Bloom and drop shadow effects include preset configurations plus options to customize the effects.
