Hi,


I'm trying to port the WPF heatmap to ArcGIS Runtime for .NET. Sadly the DynamicLayer is not possible to inherit due to an internal constructor.

What would be the best approach to implement a heatmap?

EDIT: No AGS processing - only local realtime

Hi,

Currently the client-side Heatmap layer is not supported because we would like to implement a new high performance heat map layer in the ArcGIS Runtime itself.

One option until then is to use the LocalServer with a geoprocessing task, although that will require a standard license.

Cheers

Mike

When will a client-side heat map be available for .net?  Are there examples using LocalServer to create a heatmap and what will the additional licensing cost be?

Update 1 will be able to load heatmap renderers pre-authored in a webmap. However we won't have an API for creating heatmaps until a later release.

Hi,

You can use LocalServer to generate heatmaps - it supports the Kernel, Line and Point Density GP tools - for more info see:

Local Server geoprocessing tools support—ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET | ArcGIS for Developers 

An overview of the Density toolset—Help | ArcGIS Desktop 

We don't have a sample showing that specifically, but it's the same process as publishing any geoprocessing model/script for use with Local Server. It would require a Standard license, plus the Analysis extension (License your app—ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET | ArcGIS for Developers).

Cheers

Mike
