This is the high quality version of the software/workflow demo we did for EsriUK’s ‘Faces of Analytics’ webinar series.
ArcGISPro’s new animation features are surprisingly easy to use and can give you some great results! As per usual CyberCity3D buildings and Blue-sky International’s National Tree Map make an appearance.
Like this? Just wait till you see what Nicholas Duggan has done in ArcGISPro with our new mapping templates!
Just some screenshots of experiments I’m doing with the new Environment Agency LIDAR Opendata. LASTools has been helping me a long the way too! One thing I’ve noticed the press releases about the new point cloud data release all seem to show London… yet I can’t find that London data… Nevermind Liverpool is a better choice for me!
It’s not all about the numbers here! It’s also about the mix of datasets you use to do useful 3D analysis and make a compelling 3D web scene… I’ve been working with ArcGIS Pro and whilst I don’t think the product is there yet for most work I can see potential.
- 94,125 Esri CityEngine modelled trees from Bluesky International Limited’s National Tree Map
- 21,738 Esri CityEngine extruded buildings from Ordnance Survey’s Mastermap
- 2,403 CyberCity3D, LOD2.5 Buildings
- 13 CyberCity3D, LOD2.5 Bridges
- 1 ArcGISPro 2D/3D view
Before I write a main blog post about ArcGISPro I thought a couple of screenshots would be in order. Initial impressions? Nice 2D & 3D integration, I like the ribbon interface (hope I’m not alone), but it can be very very slow and the PC specs seem pretty steep…
I’ve described the ribbon interface as a marmite moment, that is you’ll either love it or hate it. Personally a contextual interface is far better and helps me concentrate on the important production of maps not trying to remember every hardly used tool…
Potentially one stumbling block in all of this, no not the speed or the crashing (which is an issue just not in a beta), well I think more people should have access to the beta. It looks like if you have a Developer or Home ArcGIS online account you won’t as yet be able to use this.
