ArcGISPro Animation Sedbergh3D

ArcGISPro Animation Sedbergh3D

At Garsdale Design we’ve just got ourselves a Vimeo account for hosting videos.  In preparation for GISWORX 2016 we’ve been getting some demo videos together and I thought we’d share them with you!  

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!

ArcGISPro and Environment Agency LIDAR OpenData

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!

3D not just a numbers game…

ArcGIS Pro 2D and 3D split view of Durham City trees, OS data and CyberCity3D data too
Lots of data, but the real power is combining the datasets 2D and 3D from multiple providers into one cohesive story

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.

ArcGISPro Beta – Some screenshots & initial impressions

ArcGISPro Beta – Some screenshots & initial impressions

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…

The layout features, like lasso and being able to put 3D on paper is big news for me.

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…

Mulitple dataframes in view plus the layout, all dockable, contextual ribbon interface, 2D/3D… ArcGISPro is ambitious in terms of it’s interface, functionality relies still on existing tool set in ArcGIS desktop and toolboxes.

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.
