Eight new and updated deep learning models were released at the Federal GIS Conference. With these additions, you now have 12 pre-trained deep learning models  that you can use. Go to the geoprocessing tools in ArcGIS Pro, point the deep learning tools to the models and at the raw data, and the model will extract geographical features at the click of a button. See a quick video tutorial of how this works. For more information, see Pre-trained deep learning models update (February 2021).

You have models in IFC format (and many other supported CAD/BIM format), and you want to use it in GIS software to be published to ArcGIS Online? This blog walks you step by step though the workflow IFCtoSceneLayer - Creating building scene layer from 3D building models in IFC format and publish it to ArcGIS Online.

Combining the rich analysis tools in ArcGIS Pro with ArcGIS Living Atlas content can yield powerful insights and results. This blog article (by @DanPisut ) shows how to use Pro to analyze hurricane patterns using the recently updated Living Atlas hurricane layers.

See Analyze patterns of global hurricane data to learn more.

The new release of ArcGIS Pro 2.7 supports direct-read of AutoCAD Civil 3D objects. It generates CAD features that are included in a Civil 3D file, and add feature classes that are derived from the same content in a different representation. For a better understanding of how Civil 3D data is read and structured in ArcGIS Pro, this blog will compare the data (objects) in Civil 3D and ArcGIS Pro. To examine the difference, a Civil 3D file that contains a pipe network and 3D objects will be used.

A great new feature introduced in ArcGIS Pro 2.7, is GNSS (GPS) location support. You can now connect a GNSS device to ArcGIS Pro to assist with feature creation and navigation within a map or scene. This article aims to get users started with some typical connections, as well as provide suggestions for those who would like to test the feature with their phone, rather than going out and purchasing an off-the-shelf receiver. 

There is an excellent blog post by Greg Lehner 'Collect data in the field from your GNSS device with ArcGIS Pro' which I'd also recommend reading for more information about the functionality of this feature.

For years Esri has been delivering federal content in the ArcGIS Living Atlas. Many agencies are developing layers and apps of their own, including U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, whose FWS HQ ES Critical Habitat feature service now joins the Living Atlas of the World.

@MichaelDangermond explains how you can use that layer in ArcGIS Pro to extract your own critical habitat layers. For more information, see Making critical habitat rasters with the Living Atlas of the World.

When having a Python script that executes a certain pipeline, it might be handy to create a toolbox from the script that carries out the same workflow and has a more user-friendly interface. In this way, you can easily share your tools across your organization for optimum usage of what you have created. Moreover, you can schedule it to run automatically from ArcGIS Pro. This blog explains how to create a Python toolbox from a standalone python script. Therefore, I am going to use a python script that converts a Revit model to Building Scene Layer Packages and publishes it as Scene Layer. For more details a bout the workflow that this Python script does, please refer to this story map - Automating the publishing of Revit model as Scene Layer. Also, you can download the script and the geoprocessing tool explained in this blog from this GitHub repository.

Have you or your organization developed customizations for ArcGIS Desktop with the ArcObjects SDK, or developed add-ins for ArcGIS Pro with the Pro SDK?   We welcome your feedback in the new ArcGIS Desktop Development Survey, which is now available online.

There is good documentation in the Esri Resources on how to customise your ArcGIS Pro ribbon so a user can add the tools they use most into the Pro ribbons for easy access, and remove ones they don't use.

Customize the ribbon options—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation 

Customize ArcGIS Pro with geoprocessing tools—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation 

Properties command added to the new group

Appearance tab on the ribbon with the custom Properties group and Layer Properties button

Where I have found it harder to interpret the existing help documentation, is identifying what ribbon configuration is included as part of a shared Project Package.

A project package is a file that contains all maps and the data referenced by its layers, as well as folder connections, toolboxes, geoprocessing history, and attachments. Project packages can be used for sharing projects between colleagues in a work group, across departments in an organization, or with any other ArcGIS users through ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise. Share a project package—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation 

I did some testing to identify what customisation of the ribbon i could do, that would be shared as part of a project package. The answer is that most of the ribbon customisation is cached locally, and not included in a project package. The purpose is for a user to be able to customise their setup to more greatly enable themselves to work. 

This does present as a limitation if an organisation wants to influence editing workflows by making tested GP tools available in the ribbon, and removing tools that they dont wish users to use (this could be due to customisation or other factors).

One configuration of the ribbon that did successfully get included in a published project package, was the configuration i did in the Customize Analysis Gallery. This is accessible in the Analysis tab, in the Tools group and displays as a window of tools you can scroll through.

I haven't tested all options, and Id be interested in seeing what other ribbon configurations people have played around with that publish as part of a project package.

But in summary, for those skipping through the content - use the Analysis Gallery to set tools you want to be saved as part of a project package#

Happy Mapping

Get netCDF sample data here - Example netCDF files 

  • Voxel Layer only works for Local Scenes
  • To add a new Voxel Layer Map tab-> Add Data -> Add Multidimensional Voxel Layer
  • Files that work for voxel layer – netCDF will dimensions 3 dimensions and time or netCDF with 2 dimensions and time
  • Auxilliary variables do not work for voxel layer (variables where the dimensions of the voxel is defined using a proxy dimension such as trajectory instead of directly referencing realworld dimensions)
  • To change variables, there are two ways:
    • Go to Appearance tab which only appears when you select Voxel Layer -> go to Variable group
    • Right Click on Layer -> Select Symbology -> Use the Variable dropdown
  • To create isosurfaces and sections, select Section radio button :
    • For isosurfaces -> Right click on Isosurfaces -> Create Isosurface (upto 4).
    • To Edit Isosurface, right click on isosurface -> Edit -> Voxel Exploration pane should open that you can use to edit the value and color of the isosurface
    • For Sections -> Right Click on Sections -> Create Section -> Use the toolbar to create horizontal section with one click and vertical sections with 2 clicks
    • To Edit Section, right click on section -> Edit -> Voxel Exploration pane and the toolbar should open that you can use to edit the position of the section.
    • To lock the section, right click on section -> Lock section. You cannot move or change the variable of a locked section
  • If your variable is time enabled, a time slider will show. Use the time slider to animate over different timestamps
  • Use the popup for more information on specific voxels
