collect_3D.png

 

Using a collection of stereo imagery loaded into a mosaic dataset, you will use stereo viewing and mapping in ArcGIS Pro to collect new 3D rooftop point features. This will help establish a pattern that city officials can use to visually analyze imagery and compile three-dimensional (3D) features that can be used to update existing data and determine whether bylaws are being broken.

 

 

 

 

Analyze impacts of congressional redistricting with ArcGIS Insights (ArcGIS Insights/ArcGIS Online)

analyze_impacts.png

You will use ArcGIS Insights to map and compare the various redistricting plans and use different charts to analyze the demographic information in the proposed plans. Once you have created your maps and charts of the plans, you will share your work so that stakeholders and decision makers can access it online.

 

 

 

 
Design a 3D local scene (ArcGIS Pro)

create_3D_scene.png

Maps and scenes can both use illumination to achieve different effects. Maps use illumination mainly to make maps look more three dimensional by applying shaded relief or hillshades. A scene, however, needs a light source to illuminate it, and you can configure this light source to achieve different effects within the scene. Having a good understanding of these settings will allow you to add an extra level of quality to your 3D scenes. In this lesson, you'll use illumination settings, including sun position, shadows, and atmospheric effects; enable the north arrow and on-screen Navigator control; view content in a local and global scene; and work with parallel view mode to display features differently and more effectively.

 
Convert a list of historic places into a map (ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Pro)
convert_list.png

 

In this lesson, you'll reformat a list of locations as a table. Then you'll geocode the table in ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Pro. Geocoding is a process that converts location names to map coordinates. You'll review the matches produced by the geocoding process and fix any that are out of place. Finally, you'll apply a few edits to your new map before sharing it with your students.

 

 

 

 
 
Convert a static map into a web app and print map (ArcGIS Online/ArcGIS Pro/ArcGIS Dashboard)

convert_map.png

In these paired lessons you'll learn (1) how to share a web map from ArcGIS Pro, control which basemaps appear as you zoom in and out, and build a dashboard application that students can use to explore the map on a desktop or mobile device and (2) how to open a web map that you created in ArcGIS Online in the ArcGIS Pro desktop app. You'll change the map's projection, create a layout, adjust the labels, and export the map as a PDF.

 

 

 

Improve interpolations to map temperature (ArcGIS Online/ArcGIS Pro/ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst extension)

improve_interpolation.png

With a set of sample temperature measurements, you can interpolate temperature values over an entire area to predict temperatures in locations where there are no samples. You can use geostatistics to make this interpolation, but the results will not be accurate if you do not have enough sample locations. You will create a temperature map for California's Sierra Nevada mountain range. In doing so, you will interpolate datasets that contain a different amount of points to see how accuracy improves when there are more samples. Because temperature is affected by elevation, you will include an elevation variable in your prediction to see if the temperature predictions improve when considering elevation. You can use either an ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise account to sign in to ArcGIS Pro, depending on your set up.

 

Map ozone with a 3D interpolated fence (ArcGIS Online/ArcGIS Pro/ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst extension)

map_ozone.png

You will map ozone concentrations in a 3D vertical fence along the Interstate 10 highway, from Santa Monica on the coast to Palm Springs in the desert. You will use a Python script tool, built using geostatistical methods that can interpolate phenomena over a continuous surface from discrete input data. Normally, geostatistics is used to map concentrations horizontally. You will create a vertical interpolation to understand how ozone changes with height. You will also symbolize the fences layer and configure the pop-up to only display certain attributes. You can use either an ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise account to sign in to ArcGIS Pro, depending on your set up.

 

Use 2D data in a 3D scene (ArcGIS Pro)

use_2D.png

The City of Portland has undertaken a project to update and modernize its citywide database by including more 3D data and capabilities. This project includes displaying orthophotos and draping layers over the surface to provide a map user with the ability to verify spatial alignment and 3D representations of real-world objects.

In this lesson, you'll shade a surface to emphasize variations in relief and drape content on the surface. You'll also add 3D symbology to layers.

 

 

Visualize D-Day in 3D (ArcGIS Earth)

improve_interpolation.png

In this lesson, you will re-create the scene for the initial landing at D-Day using KMZ, KML, and OBJ files in ArcGIS Earth. By using the Interactive Analysis tools in ArcGIS Earth, you will be able to understand the viewshed range of different vehicles and weaponry. After completing this lesson, you will be able to employ similar techniques to re-create other battles for instructional purposes, or to gain a general overview of a battle plan using ArcGIS Earth.

If criminals met with a group to plan their activities, or fled the scene of the crime with a getaway driver, determining cotravelers can help pinpoint suspects. In this lesson, you'll perform cotraveler analysis on fictional cell phone records to identify potential accomplices suspected of participating in a robbery. You'll perform the analysis in ArcGIS Pro Intelligence, a customized version of ArcGIS Pro tailored for intelligence workflows. After the analysis, you'll review the results and reach conclusions regarding the cotravelers you identified.

 

 

Site a sustainable shrimp farm (ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Spatial Analyst Extension)

site_shrimp.png

In recent years, Costa Rica has been developing organic and sustainable shrimp farming. In particular, it is trying to move the production away from mangrove forests, as intensive shrimp farming is destructive to that environment. It also encourages a practice that does away with the heavy use of chemicals and antibiotics. As the new approach to shrimp farming is increasingly successful, local farmers are looking for potential locations for new organic and sustainable shrimp farms. In this lesson you'll use the ArcGIS Pro Suitability Modeler to locate new potential farming sites in the Gulf of Nicoya, Costa Rica based on several criteria. You'll generate a suitability map indicating the most favorable areas based on the criteria. Then, from the suitability map, you'll identify the five best potential shrimp locations.

Map your community cleanup (ArcGIS Field Maps, ArcGIS Insights)

There is no doubt that maps are a central part of the ArcGIS StoryMaps experience! But knowing how to choreograph the presentation of those maps and adjust what they will show will help take your stories to the next level. Map actions allow your readers to control what the map shows and elevates them from passive to interactive readers. Map actions engage your readers and reward their curiosity, such as by allowing them to turn layers on and off to reveal additional map details. Map actions can also be configured to allow readers to change the map extent, such as clicking on a button and zooming in to a city or panning to a different country. In this lesson, you'll set up a story's map actions.

 

Create a COVID-19 dashboard (ArcGIS Online/ArcGIS Dashboards)

create_dashboard.png

Doctors first identified the virus responsible for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in early 2020. The virus quickly spread, bringing the disease to every continent.

The Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University soon began collecting and updating information on the location of confirmed COVID-19 cases, deaths, and recoveries. In this lesson, you'll build three maps of COVID-19 cases using real-time data feeds provided by CSSE. Then you will combine the maps and other information to create a dashboard illustrating the current pattern of worldwide cases.

 

Illuminate terrain with a custom hillshade (ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Pro)

illuminate_terrain.png

Hillshading—also known as shaded relief—is a technique that visually communicates terrain. It depicts the 3D surface of a landscape on a flat map by simulating how light and shadow might fall on that surface. Hillshading has a long history in cartography, and there are many methods and techniques for achieving this visual effect.

In this lesson, you'll use ArcGIS Pro raster functions to build a custom hillshade of part of the Great Rift Valley of Ethiopia. The hillshade you create will be informed by observations about how light works in the real world. You'll learn a repeatable technique to create dynamic and attractive hillshades in any area, how to share the results with others, and how to blend hillshades into other layers of your map.

 

Train a model to identify street signs (ArcGIS Online/ArcGIS Enterprise, ArcGIS Survey123, ArcGIS Notebooks, ArcGIS API for Python)

train_sign.png

While machine learning tasks in the office may replace some human activities, in the field they often complement or enhance field work activities instead of replace them. In this lesson, you'll build and verify a model that can be used to automatically identify street signs based on images manually captured in ArcGIS Survey123.

First, you'll acquire a representative collection of training images captured using Survey123. Next, you'll use the images to train a model with ArcGIS Notebooks. Once the necessary model files are created, you'll use them in conjunction with the Survey123 SmartCamera to test the model's predictions and classify survey photos.

Visualize and explore coral reef habitats with voxels (ArcGIS Pro)

voxels.png

You can explore the ecological range that corals live in with a voxel layer displaying Ecological Marine Unit (EMU) data. EMU data consists of 3D renderings of observations about ocean characteristics based on 50-year averages; the visual analysis done in this lesson might therefore not be indicative of the present-day scenario.

Typically, NOAA estimates that optimal water temperatures for coral reefs are between 73° and 84° Fahrenheit (23°-–29°Celsius). The salinity for most reef-building corals ranges from 32 to 42 parts per thousand. You will use voxels to determine areas where the salinity and temperature create an environment that is more conducive to coral bleaching.

Evaluate COVID-19 financial vulnerability (ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Business Analyst)

financial.png

This lesson outlines a proposed data-driven approach for mapping the level of financial vulnerability across a region. Financial vulnerability occurs when income and liquid financial assets are insufficient to cover debt payments and basic living costs. Just as you can't measure physical health by only looking at blood pressure, you can't measure financial health by only looking at a single variable. For this lesson, you'll model financial vulnerability as a function of income, expenditures, and external factors that can negatively impact income.

 

 

 
Explore and animate geological data with voxels (ArcGIS Pro)

voxel.png

This lesson introduces the voxel layer's visual analytics capabilities, specifically for discrete data. By using the Netherlands' geological categories visualized with voxel layer functionality, you will create section diagrams, areas of interest, and export your visual analysis results as animations for effective storytelling.

You'll visualize the geological characteristics of this landscape with the voxel layer. The voxel layer is based on geological data from The Geological Survey of the Netherlands. The data that you will use is a detailed three-dimensional model of the shallow subsurface up to a depth of 50 meters below NAP (Amsterdam Ordnance Datum).

 
Fill gaps in your data with areal interpolation (ArcGIS Pro/ArcGIS Statistical Analyst)

gaps.png

In this lesson, you'll use the second method—geostatistics—to map the spatial variation of data across the entire study area. Predicted values are then pulled from the resulting map to fill the gaps in your data. Geostatistics allows you to predict values in locations that have not been measured, using data from measurements elsewhere in your study area. Typically geostatistics uses point data, but it can also interpolate from data stored in polygons, as you'll use in this lesson.

Share raster data as an analytical image service (ArcGIS Pro)

share_raster.png

Imagery is an integral component to creating visually appealing maps that can provide a more realistic perspective of your data for mapping and visualization. While imagery is great for mapping and visualization, you can also use it for analytical purposes. You will combine several image layers for each island in Hawaii into a mosaic dataset. Once you combine the images into a mosaic dataset, you will include it in a land cover classification story produced by NOAA's Office for Coastal Management. The story is a map tour of the land cover classes in NOAA's Coastal Change and Analysis Program (CCAP), but it currently does not include Hawaii. Your goal is to create a map layer for Hawaii to complete the story and publish it to ArcGIS Image Server for others to use. When complete, the image layer will show land cover types in various maps, but it may also be used directly in ArcGIS Pro for analysis to count the area of the different types of land cover.
 
Use infographics to understand total addressable market (Business Analyst Web App)

use_info.png

A railway company operates rail lines throughout Iowa. The railway company wants to understand the consumer and business market near its intermodal and grain facilities to better serve the Iowa farming community, as well as a set of target industries whose products are less costly to transport by rail. The marketing manager for the railway wants to find businesses in specific industries, located at various distances from the lines, to understand the total addressable market (TAM). The manager wants to present this information to railway executives to launch a campaign targeted to businesses nearby.

First, you'll map rail lines in Iowa in ArcGIS Online. You will add data about active rail lines in Iowa. Then, you will add buffers around these routes and import this layer to ArcGIS Business Analyst Web App. Finally, you will create an infographic to show market prospects within 1, 3, and 5 miles of the rail lines.

Evaluate Ethiopia’s changing landscape (ArcGIS Pro/ArcGIS Image Analyst)

evalute_ethiopia.png

Ethiopia is currently experiencing the largest infestation of desert locusts to hit Eastern Africa in decades. The United Nations' Food and Agricultural Organization is calling the locust invasion "an unprecedented threat to food security and livelihoods" as a result of a decline in vegetation coverage and crop productivity throughout the country. In the past few decades, Ethiopia has also changed due to population growth, resulting in expanding urban areas and agriculture, to the detriment of forest and other natural vegetation, in populated regions of the country.

To analyze these different types of land cover change in Ethiopia, you will use the Change Detection Wizard in ArcGIS Pro. First, you'll analyze long-term land cover changes from 1992 to 2018 using a land cover dataset. Then, you'll identify areas where there has been vegetation loss due to locust infestations in 2020, using imagery data.
