ArcGIS Velocity

Analyze real-time and big data

Go to pricing

ArcGIS Velocity is a cloud-native add-on capability for ArcGIS Online. It enables users to ingest data from the Internet of Things (IoT) platforms, message brokers, or third-party APIs. It also helps users process, visualize, and analyze real-time data feeds; store those feeds as big data; and perform fast queries and analysis. Use this software as a service (SaaS) IoT application to better leverage your real-time spatial data for essential operational decisions such as remote monitoring of assets, predictive maintenance, and process optimization.

Optimize and manage winter weather operations in real time

Winter weather impacts roadway safety and increases the risk of traffic accidents. Every year, governments allocate over two billion dollars to plan and execute winter weather operations. 

Esri’s Winter Weather Operations solution utilizes ArcGIS Velocity to maximize your winter weather operations budget by implementing a real-time GIS mapping solution to make informed operational decisions. Connect with an Esri expert to improve your readiness for winter weather challenges.

Integrate real-time data

Ingest data from connected devices by configuring a feed that can be used as a live map layer. Integrate real-time data with historical data via stream and feature layers to analyze change over time. The highly scalable Kubernetes-based architecture of ArcGIS Velocity enables the processing of massive volumes of spatial data at very high speeds.

Monitor critical assets

Get precise locations and insights on all of your assets for 24/7 visibility. Track dynamic assets that are constantly changing location, such as vehicles, aircraft, vessels, and stationary assets, such as weather and environmental monitoring sensors.

Unlock spatial insights

Make informed decisions with IoT spatial intelligence analysis. Access a range of powerful real-time and big data tools to analyze information from a variety of data feeds and sources. Identify spatial relationships between features using dynamic geofencing. Leverage a visual analytic model builder to design complex analysis and automate workflows, saving time and effort.

Trigger alerts

Results from analytics, whether performed in real time or batch mode, can be pushed as alerts, which puts time-sensitive information in the hands of personnel. Display and share your findings with others in your organization with the help of operational dashboards. Gain operational, tactical, and strategic efficiencies that save time and money.

Work in the cloud

Get started quickly with no configuration with a SaaS model. Take advantage of distributed computing. Get real-time and big data capabilities as a service and perform analytics at a massive scale.

How it works
