Imago offers a platform for capturing and cataloging geoscientific imagery for outcrops, hand samples, cores, chips, and much more. These all have a location and being able to visualize them on a map helps to gain a better understanding of your data. Part of Imago’s platform is providing an API that you can use to access their imagery from other applications, such as an ArcGIS map. By doing this, you can search for data geographically and add more reference data such as faults, claims, leases, geologic units, and more.
In this blog, I am going to show you how to access Imago images from an ArcGIS Dashboard (like the below image) so that you can dynamically select outcrops and collars on the map to view in Imago.
First, it starts with creating data in ArcGIS Pro. To do this, I had spreadsheets (attached to blog) for collars and outcrops which had latitude and longitude as well as a collection identifier field from the source data. The collection ID field will be used to query the Imago API. I used Excel to Table and XY Table to Point to plot the locations on a map in ArcGIS Pro.
I then applied symbology for the outcrops and collars and added additional data layers to give extra context. With my map created, I shared it with my ArcGIS Online/ArcGIS Enterprise organization. For more information on how to do this, see this tutorial: Share a web map.
For this application, I used ArcGIS Dashboards because of its ability to support embedded content such as websites. To first create a dashboard, you can follow these instructions: create a dashboard. When creating your dashboard, select the map you just published and continue with the below steps.
You now have integrated ArcGIS and Imago! There is much more you can build with ArcGIS Dashboards, if you are looking more resources, you can find some here:
