Welcome and thank you for joining the ArcGIS Urban API place on GeoNet!

If you landed here, you probably already know something about ArcGIS Urban. If not, or you just want to learn more about Urban, check out the ArcGIS Urban place.

The ArcGIS Urban API was released as a public beta with the latest Release 2020 Q4. It is a public GraphQL web service enabling the direct interaction with urban models. 

If you want to learn more about the Urban API, check out our documentation page.

There is also a short introductory video from the Esri Developer Summit.

In this video, you will find answers to the following questions:

  • Why did we create the Urban API?
  • Why do we use GraphQL?

You will also see a demo of using the Urban API in the GraphQL playground.

Do you want to try out some GraphQL queries on your own? Check out the Urban API playground.

Are you excited for the new possibilities to interact with your urban models and data? How would you use the Urban API in your work? Let us know in the comments below or feel free to ask your API related questions in the questions board.
