By popular demand we have published a blog post outlining a workflow to create track heat maps using GeoAnalytics Desktop tools in ArcGIS Pro. Check out the blog and try the workflow for yourself using the provided sample script and data, here: Track Heat Mapping with GeoAnalytics Desktop tools 

Spoiler alert! Here's a quick GIF from the blog that demonstrates how effective the workflow is in visualizing and uncovering patterns in track datasets:


I'm excited to hear any feedback about this workflow and if it was able to help you complete your track analysis workflows.

As part of the 10.6.1 release, we've published a blog post outlining how to create layers that aggregate large data sets at different zoom levels. You can check out the blog post here: Visualize aggregated data in ArcGIS GeoAnalytics Server 10.6.1.

The blog contains a link to a sample notebook that you can modify to use with your own GeoAnalytics Server, as well as instructions on how to run this through REST. This functionality exposes capabilities of the spatiotemporal big data store that is also used with GeoEvent Server. 

I'm excited to hear any feedback or any further requests! To see what else we added at 10.6.1 (spoiler: new tools and big data file share inputs) see What's new in ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6.1—ArcGIS Enterprise | ArcGIS Enterprise.

Happy Aggregating!

I am a GIS Technical Consultant and I am working for a GIS startup company.

What I expect from the community here is a work group in order to plan/execute the project successfully.

Please see the information about the project, below listed:

Project context:

- In order to develop the internal Enterprise GIS Platform, we would like to organize and set our data inventory and assessment and by the same time start implementing a data platform.

Project Objectives:

- Project Planning - Establish a roadmap an Enterprise GIS Database Server platform. (Create a Project Schedule/Plan)

- Project Execution - Implement the Enterprise GIS Database Server platform.

Business Requirements:

- Create and produce GIS Enterprise Geodatabase within a database server machine for a company.

- The multiple Enterprise geodatabases related to multiple clients/GIS utilities could be consumed via suitable tunnels internally and externally to the company.

System Requirements:

- Use a database management system (MS SQL Server or Oracle (Appreciated))
