  • Hello, my name is Aileen Buckley. I’m a cartographer in the Software Products division of Esri in Redlands, California. Today I’m going to be sharing with you some of the things that are new for cartography in the ArcGIS 10.2 for Desktop release that came out this past summer.
  • ArcGIS provides a complete Geospatial Platform.This platform is made up of Apps and Applications, the back office infrastructure to drive those apps, and content & services. Now, we include Desktop on the Apps and Applications side of the globe, [click] and while Desktop is a common consumer of the content being served by Online and Server, Desktop, along with its extensions, is also the primary tool for authoring the content, data, maps, features and analysis—all the services that drive the platform. It is a very important part of the platform as a whole, and we continue to invest in it, and continue to improve ArcGIS Desktop. Desktop is important to our users. The message we need to be giving is the Desktop is an important part of the platform. It is important to our existing customers. It is important to Esri. We need to let them know we haven’t forgotten about them, or left them behind. We continue to invest in Desktop technology. We continue to work towards meeting the enhancement requests10.2 is the next major update, and much of the focus of Desktop for the 10.2 release has involved continued integration with the ArcGIS platform. We have been making improvements that ensure it integrates and works well as part of the overall system.
  • Altogether, these pieces represent a platform, enabling web GIS everywhere, not only in the cloud. The cloud is very exciting. People talk a lot about it, but there are also constraints there. With Portal for ArcGIS, all of the cool ArcGIS Online stuff that many of you have been attracted to will now be implementable on-premises on your site.
  • ArcGIS 10.2 for Desktop improves the overall ArcGIS platform. It is the primary tool the majority of our customers use to author the content -- the data, maps, layers and analyses that are the backbone of the platform.These were some of the major focus areas for the Desktop 10.2 release. Much of the focus was on quality and on things that enhance the overall platform. Things like:Quality and performance enhancements, Authentication and security improvements,More analysis and conversion tools,The ability to author and consume more content and services,Mapping and cartography,3D GIS,andwe have added more publishing capabilities. I’m just going to hit some of the highlights that relate to or have an impact on mapping and cartography for you this afternoon…
  • I'd like to shift, once again, gears and talk about what's going on in one of the products that many of you love and use every day, which is the desktop product. At 10.2, the desktop simply gets better. A lot of emphasis has been placed on quality. You asked us to do that last year. We did it. But also introducing a number of new capabilities in the area of better mapping in the generalization area particularly, but also about 16 or 17 new analytic tools focused on high-end hot spot analysis, some interesting areas about integration with big data and others. At 10.2, we introduce a new technology for better integration with enterprise security systems, and a new little capability called image caching, which means on my local desktop, I can take my imagery and cache it and send it over to the cloud and serve it up or in my server serve it up.
  • ArcGIS 10.2 for Desktop is an important part of the ArcGIS platform. It is the primary tool the majority of our customers use to author the content-- the data, maps, layers and analysis that drive the platform and all these great apps we’ve been discussing over the past couple of days. We continue to make large investments in Desktop technology. We continue to listen to our user’s requests, and we continue to make enhancements. These are the major Themes for the Desktop 10.2 release. You’ll notice that many of these are the same as the major themes for the entire 10.2 ArcGIS Platform release, and much of the focus of the 10.2 Desktop release are things that improve the overall platform. First of all, we have made great improvements in terms of quality and performance. We’ve addressed more than 600 software issues. Many of these were things that came in though user crash dumps. It is important that the overall Platform be secure, we heard that this morning. Desktop plays a role in this as well. And we’ve made enhancements to We’ve made enhancements to Authentication and SecurityWe are supporting new workspace types and have added more user requested functionality for working with geodata. We have added the ability to change the fields in your feature classes after they have been created for supported We continue to expand GI Science, and we have made additional strides in our work around geo analytics. There are 16 new geoprocessing tools in 10.2.3D GIS continues to be a focus and continues to grow in terms of functionality, and in key areas for integration with Online, and services.We have expanded publishing to include the ability to directly publish from Desktop to your Portal.And finally, we enhanced 10.2 Desktop and the geodatabase in order to support disconnected GIS on mobile devices. These are the Major Themes I see for the Desktop 10.2 release. These should help provide answers to the question “Why should I use ArcGIS 10.2 for Desktop?” First of all, we have made great improvements in terms of quality and performance.We have done more to ensure that the overall system is secure with enhancements to Authentication and SecurityWe are supporting new workspace types and have added more user requested functionality for working with geodata.We continue to expand GI Science, and we have made additional strides in our work around geo analytics.There are key improvements in Mapping and Reporting.3D GIS continues to be a focus and continues to grow in terms of functionality, and in key areas for integration with Online, and services.We have expanded publishing to include the ability to directly publish from Desktop to your Portal.And finally, we enhanced 10.2 Desktop and the geodatabase in order to support disconnected GIS on mobile devices.
  • ArcGIS 10.2 for Desktop has a major focus on quality and performance enhancements.For this release, we addressed more than 600 software issues. Many of these were from crash dumps that were sent directly from our users machines. This should make ArcGIS 10.2 one of the most stable releases we’ve ever had.  Next, in the last releases of ArcGIS for Desktop, we began introducing parallel processing to some of our geoprocessing tools as a way to improve performance. We’ve done this with a number of geostatisical analysis tools such as kriging and inverse distance weighting, and also with some of the raster tools for working with mosaic datasets or for building pyramids. At 10.2, we continue to expand support for parallel processing, using up to 4 cores, for a group of the spatial Analyst tools including Reclassify, Weighed Overlay, Weighted Sum, Zonal Statistics, and Zonal Statistics as Table.  We also made several file handling optimizations which make geoprocessing against ArcGIS for Server on Linux 25% faster. This will help our Desktop users calling a GP service on a Linux server. We have quite a few users with this configuration.
  • We’ve done a lot at 10.2 to improve the overall security of the entire ArcGIS platform. ArcGIS for Desktop plays a key role in this in several ways. The first of these is support for PKI (or,Public Key Infrastructure). PKI is a set of hardware, software, people, policies and procedures used to secure hardware and its contents (the data). Most people know it as these cards that you insert into the computer (like you see in the picture). This is big in the Defense and Intel industries right now, and was a major enhancement request. At 10.2 we have addedsupport for this. Another big thing we’ve done is to provide support for Single Sign On authentication. What this means is you’ll be able to sign on to your ArcGIS Online account using Desktop, and the authentication will be passed on without exposing your credentials (user name and password). For example, your credentials will be passed from Desktop to ArcGIS Online automatically when performing batch geocoding with Esri’s World Geocoding service. This is true for any service you want to call from ArcGIS Online. Users can leverage their own security identity stores, such as Windows Active Directory or LDAP, and this not only works with ArcGIS online, but also on premises, with their own Portal, within their own firewall. Enterprise Business SystemsThe other thing we have done at 10.2 is incorporated a Standardized SQL Parser. This is another security measure. So, when defining a service using SQL queries, we are now parsing the SQL to prevent anyone from inserting any bits of malicious code. They call these ‘injection attacks”. The standard SQL parser we’ve implemented will prevent these kinds of attacks.
  • Support has been added for IBM Netezza 7.0 and INZA 2.5 at 10.1 SP1, and starting at 10.2, a Teradata workspace is supported for simple 2D features. Netezza and Teradata are platforms of choice for large data warehousing and analytics users, such as nationwide retailers.We have also added support for SQLite via query layers. And we are now supporting PostgresSQLversion 9.2.
  • A highly requested enhancement is support for modifying field properties after feature class or table has been created. At 10.2 we’ll support thisprovided the underlying workspace supports it.Field properties that can be altered include: Field Name, Data Type,Alias, Allow NULL values,Default Value,Domain, and Length.You can now archive non-versioned geodatabases. There is a newArchiving Toolset that supports time-based changes. Date/Time stamps are kept for the features, and these are used to create a snapshot in time.Also, new at 10.2, you can publish data from your DB2, Informix, Oracle, PostgreSQL, or SQL Server databases stored in the native spatial types as feature services.
  • We’ve made improvements to our PDF exporter for customers who take advantage of feature level masking. Traditionally, these have been mapping organizations like national mapping agencies and map publishers. This enhancement will mean a big performance improvement for these types of users. Exports happen much faster, and the export files are much smaller.We’ve also made some additional improvements to our Generalizationtools – specifically, the Delineate Built-Up Areas has a new minimum building count parameter, which gives you more control over the built up areas you are creating. Another thing we’ve added is a report form for formatting mailing labels to help users who want to send out correspondence. These reports can be customized to match different label formats. This has been a user request by local governments in particular.
  • At 10.2 we continue to expand GI Science with the inclusion of 23 new geoprocessing tools. Also, a large number of parameters (74) have been added to existing geoprocessing tools to increase their functionality. For example, there is a new spatial statistics tool calledOptimized Hot Spot Analysis. This tool interrogates data and determines optimal settings for performing a hot spot analysis. The underlying science is maintained, and users don’t need to know or have the statistics background assumed by the traditional Hot Spot Analysis tool.
  • These are some additional analytics tools included with Spatial Analyst and 3D Analyst.First, a new Local function in Spatial Analyst supports a wide range of functions on a pixel-by-pixel basis within a single band, while optionally supporting multiple input rasters. This function can be used to replace many raster map algebra workflows.Next, the Spatial Analyst and 3D Analyst extensions have a new Visibility tool that supports using input data attributes or user specified values for its parameters. 3D Analyst has new Intervisibility tool that determines if sight lines are obstructed by any intermediate features.Finally,multipatch features can be converted to rasters with the new Multipatch to Raster tool. This can be used, for example, to create an elevation raster from rooftop multipatches. 
  • At 10.2 we’re releasing some new conversion tools as well. First of all, Excel is the world’s most popular tabular data interchange format and the ability to import and export directly from Excel has been a big user enhancement request. At 10.2 we have two new tools that support this: Table to Excel and Excel to Table.Also,JSON is the universal serialization method for web apps, and for interfacing with Big Data platforms. For example, Esri’s Hadoop integration uses JSON for file transfer. Previously ArcPy scripting was the only way Desktop could work with JSON data, now we have new tools to go from JSON to Feature Class and Feature Class to JSON.
  • At10.2 we are continuing to make big advances in 3D GIS.First of all, LiDAR is faster. At 10.2 we are automatically calculating spatial indexes and summary statistics for your LAS data. This means we will be providing faster access to all your source LiDAR data. These improvements are particularly effective, or more pronounced, for larger LAS files and for organizations that have a central LAS repository that is exposed on a network.3D Web Scenes:Nextat 10.2 we have something new called 3D Web Scenes.3D Web Scenes allow users to share the 3D visualizations they’ve created in City Engine, or ArcScene, as a service that can be viewed in Web browsers or on mobile devices. So, atArcGIS 10.2, users can publish ArcScene projects as a 3D Web Scene and sharethem usingArcGIS Online or Portal and embed it in a web page or view it on their phone or tablet. So, 3D on your mobile device – this is huge for 3D for us.  Generate rule-driven 3D content:ArcGIS 10.2 allows 3D Analyst users to embed City Engine’s modeling power directly within their existing geoprocessingworkflows.  The new Features from City Engine Rules Geoprocessing tool generates geometries from existing features in Desktop using rules authored in City Engine. Users can then create 3D models – such as buildings, trees, or 3D zoning regulationsdirectlyin ArcGISusing rule packages authored in City Engine 2013.  Don’t read the rest of this slide!!!ArcGIS for 3D Cities:At 10.2 we have a new solution coming out calledArcGIS for 3D Cities. This solution helps users plan and understand their city, by providing the foundation for managing, visualizing, analyzing, and sharing 3D urban spaces. I’ve included this in this Desktop presentation because it comes with a model,a set of specialized tools and workflows that take advantage of thenew 3D geoprocessing tools in ArcGIS 10.2. 
  • Desktop is still the primary authoring tool for maps, features, and analysis. These can call be published as services, and these services power the entire platform. This is why, at 10.0 and 10.1 we made it possible to publish directly from Desktop to Server, and then to ArcGIS Online. Now, with the release of a new Portal product at 10.2, [click slide] you’ll be able to publish directly to your on premise portal from Desktop, just like you can publish to ArcGISOnline.
  • These are what I see as The Big Takeaways, or what I think will be important to remember from this presentation. These should give you answers to questions like, “Why do I need ArcGIS 10.2 for Desktop?” or “Why should I upgrade to 10.2?” -First, ArcGIS for Desktop is an important part of the ArcGIS Platform. It is the primary authoring and editing tool for maps, data, content, services that drive your Web Maps, and now 3D Web Scenes. The enhancements coming with 10.2 continue to help unify the platform as a whole. -Next, the 10.2 release enhances quality and performance, with more than 600 software issues addressed and with our taking advantage of processing improvements. -10.2 helps to enhance the overall security of the system through support for single sign on authentication, PKI and standard SQL parsers.-Desktop 10.2 provides big advances in 3D GIS including the ability to author and publish 3D Web Scenes that bring 3D to the Web and to all your mobile devices. -And, we have expanded publishing directly from ArcGIS for Desktop, which has been available at 10.0 and 10.1 for publishing to Server and ArcGIS Online, to include publishing to your internal Portal.
  • Looking ahead, what's going to happen with ArcGIS? We're going to continue improving the platform in two ways—software releases, as we have been doing for 30 years, but also continuous online improvements. ArcGIS 10.2 was released this spring but also ArcGIS Online has had a number of significant enhancements in recent releases. These releases will happen with a faster cadence—first in the fall, more in the winter, more in the spring. Next year, you're going to see some very exciting stuff in the form of new apps. They embrace many of the things users asked for—64 bit; multiple windows, especially in the desktop world; a fluid display which ismuch faster, support elements of geodesign, and integrating of 3D. We'll continue to work on quality. We'll continue to work on what you tell us to work on. So letr us know what is important to you!
