This Week's Picks - ArcGIS Enterprise #11

Blog Post created by JEdstrom-esristaff Employee on Mar 18, 2020

As you may have heard, due to the continuously evolving circumstances around COVID-19, last week’s Esri Developer Summit plenary was held in front of an empty audience.  If you missed the Livestream of the plenary, do not worry - it can all be found here.  And, better yet, the focus of This Week's Picks - ArcGIS Enterprise is the Dev Summit Plenary Highlights.  The highlights included:

1. Big data analysis using GeoAnalytics Tools

2. Use raster analytics and the ArcGIS API for Python to monitor coral bleaching

3. Automation comes to ArcGIS Notebooks

 1. Big data analysis using GeoAnalytics Tools

Sarah's demo at the plenary covered how, using Apache Spark, GeoAnalytics performs parallel analysis to analyze vector and tabular datasets in both ArcGIS Enterprise and ArcGIS Pro.  Without Spark, each tool has to be executed separately; with Spark, a function can be written to chain multiple tools together.   With the run_python_script tool, Sarah’s workflows can be streamed across ArcGIS GeoAnalytics Server.  Read more for yourself here.  As a bonus, check out the related video here.

 

2. Use raster analytics and the ArcGIS API for Python to monitor coral bleaching

Vinay’s ArcGIS Image Server plenary demo covered how analysis tools in raster analytics can process multidimensional data.  Utilizing both Notebooks and the ArcGIS API for Python, he created a model that helped illustrate and comprehend the impact of sea surface temperature on coral bleaching.  These tools empower users to build custom applications and automate their raster workflows.  Check it out for yourself in this blog and this video

 

3. Automation comes to ArcGIS Notebooks

Automating tasks can make life easier for ArcGIS Enterprise administrators.  At the Dev Summit plenary, Jay spoke of three types of automation: simple, advanced, and intelligent.  As this blog mentions, it is important for organizations to understand and consider these types of automation so that they can make the best decisions for their organizations.  Starting with ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8, ArcGIS Notebooks have an "Execute Notebook" option.  This option allows administrators to automate notebook execution – to run an existing notebook without manually accessing the notebook.  Read more about this for yourself here.  To see the demo for yourself, watch the video here
