Welcome back, in this section of the technology  update we'll continue to look at the other main   ArcGIS applications that you're using to do your  work and to share what's new as well as little of   what's coming. We're also going to look at some  of the more specialist applications within ArcGIS   that you may be new to some of you and some  very new applications that will likely be most   new to most of you. But let's start with an  application which I think should be familiar to   most of you, ArcGIS Pro. ArcGIS Pro has evolved  into a powerful robust GIS desktop application,   which, although a desktop application, has web  connectivity at its heart. Allowing you to take   advantage of ArcGIS Online or Enterprise content  sharing and analytics and remember ArcGIS Pro also   has a number of focused extensions which enhance  productivity and extend analysis capabilities.  

These work seamlessly with each other and with  the wider ArcGIS system. So, to give us an update   on the latest developments for ArcGIS Pro I want  to pass over to one of our 2022 graduate interns   Jess. Hi ya, today I'm going to show you  some of the latest enhancements that have   been developed for ArcGIS Pro 2.9 starting  with updates that will allow users to improve   their cartographic design and communicate  their message in new ways. For instance,   one of the new symbology improvements includes  the dynamic feature clustering tool. In this   scenario data is provided by MPI that represents  protected species that were caught in New Zealand   waters from 2002 to 2020 but the points here  are crowded with no real interpretive value.

By instead clicking on the layer, finding the  appearance tab and then selecting aggregation,   I now have the option of clustering. These new  clusters, that are generated, automatically   adjust and re-aggregate as the user zooms in  and out. Returning to the new clustering tab,   scale threshold on the left, can be chosen to  control at what scales the clusters appear,   while the clustering radius can change the  distance at which the features are clustered. Increasing the radius means lowering the number  of clusters. By clicking on summary statistics   we have the option to choose an attribute of the  feature, in this case capture method, choose a   method of summary, in this case mode, then create  a new symbology field. Now we can symbolise our   clusters by the new field as unique values. Our  cluster will now display the most common capture  

method spatially clustered, providing both  a sleeker and more insightful visualisation.   In addition to feature clustering, ArcGIS Pro has  expanded its gallery of pre-configured figured   symbols to include animations. The styles can  be easily added from the system styled list   and include both 2D and 3D symbols. In this  example, I have historic weather data from NIWA  

depicting locations of rainfall events in Taranaki  from 1883 to 2010. By clicking on the layer,   opening the symbology panel, selecting the symbol   and browsing the gallery, I can now  see various animated symbols available.   Once a symbol is chosen, it can be  modified by first going to properties   and then layers. Here the tint rotation and even  timing of the animation can be edited. To create   my own animated symbol, I could also upload my own  picture marker to a symbol and use an animated GIF   as the source file. In this case we will increase  the duration of the animation to make sure   the rain appear to fall slower. If we click  apply, then pan to see the rest of the symbols,  

we can now see there is a clear distinction of  weather events by the speed of their animation,   imitating rainfall at different severities. If I  want to make a 3D scene instead, I can use the 3D   symbols and modify them in a similar fashion. With  animated symbology both these previously static   layers have been upgraded to be more visually  engaging and informative, though at any time   all these animations can be paused by clicking the  pause playback playback button in the bottom right   corner of the map. So next up, let's take a look  at the enhancements that have been made to data   management in ArcGIS Pro. Let's first go to the  catalog pane. As I expand my folder connections   you can see that I'm currently connected to  this folder with a pretty meaningless name,   in this release of ArcGIS Pro I can now create  an alias for this folder to get a better idea   of my folder structure and the data within it  without physically changing the name of my folder.  

Additionally, I can now open feature or table  views directly within the catalog pane so I can   explore and examine my data without having  to first be in a map or a scene. Next let's   take a look at a data set many of you will be  familiar with, the 2018 New Zealand census layer   this layer is rich in attributes with over 170  fields, relating to health, income and access to   housing, to name a few and this provides a perfect  use case to show the new data engineering view.   Data engineering helps make your data analysis  ready by streamlining your data preparation tasks   and allows you to explore, visualise, clean  and prepare your data. On the left hand side,   we'll see a list of all the fields that this layer  contains as well as their corresponding data type.  

I can search for specific keywords to  find the fields I'm most interested in,   which in this case are only those  related to weekly rent prices.   Once I've selected those fields, I'll drag them  into my view, where I can quickly calculate   powerful chart previews as well as helpful summary  statistics for each of these fields. Like minimum   and maximum values, mean and standard deviation. I  can also use data engineering to visualise my data   as well. Using the update symbology button which  dynamically updates my layer symbology based on  

different fields and helps me to start to identify  and visualise spatial patterns within my data.   From there I can easily clean my data by deleting  unnecessary fields or filling in missing values,   construct my data by calculating fields and  geometries and further prepare my data by   applying geoprocessing tools to both integrate  and to format my data for future analysis. So   lastly let's zoom to a global extent to take a  look at the latest enhancements with big data   connections in ArcGIS Pro. In the latest release I  can now connect directly to cloud data warehouses   including Snowflake, Amazon,  Redshift and Google BigQuery.   Once connected to that database I now have access  it to it in my catalog where I can see all the   rich data and tables this warehouse contains.  From there I can enable feature bending on my  

tables within my data warehouse to draw aggregate  features at different scales, which makes it   possible to visualise and understand where these  half a million wildfire points are located. These   bins allow me to quickly identify the areas around  the globe where wildfires are most prominent,   including South America, Central Africa and  Australia. I can also leverage the power of   a cloud data warehouse via a query layer  which allows me to construct an SQL query   to search through the warehouses and return  only the data which I'm most interested in.   So here I'll construct a query which searches  through the records within my warehouse   and returns only the ones that I want. Which in  this case are wildfires within my specified AOI.  

Once complete that data will  add to my map returning only   the subset of focused data which I'm  most interested in for future analysis.   Now all these enhancements and many more are  currently available to you, for use today,   with the latest release to ArcGIS Pro. I encourage  you to go give them a go, thank you. So as you saw   ArcGIS Pro is continually growing in functionality  and is now the preferred GIS professional tool,   its predecessor ArcMap while still  supported for around four more years   has all software development ceased and the  focused efforts are going into ArcGIS Pro.   Customers are therefore strongly encouraged to  migrate to ArcGIS Pro. For more information on   the migration check out the resources, including  information on the upcoming Eagle webinar.  

I now want to move to another area of the  ArcGIS system. Moving from desktop tools for GIS   professionals to mobile device applications for  everyone, everywhere. Field applications allow you   and your users to extend GIS workflows into the  field, whether working online or offline on phones   or tablets. To tell us about the new advances in  ArcGIS field applications let me pass over to Ed   Cook. Did you know, that the ArcGIS mobile  applications update multiple times a year?   In the next few minutes, I'm going to bring  you out on a few jobs showing you some of the   new functionality that's become available in  ArcGIS QuickCapture, Field Maps and Survey123.   Today is going to be a busy day for all of us  in the operations team. With many different jobs  

and new functionality to show you. Using  ArcGIS Workforce, a spatial to-do list,   I'm going to assign a series of tasks to myself so  I can show you what's new across the mobile apps.   My first job is a rapid inspection  taking me out to the wolves.  

Here I'm on a hunt for a specific type of bollard.   We've recently identified a few issues with the  coating on similar assets so for this job that   has hundreds of this type of asset out there  I'm going to use ArcGIS QuickCapture. Turning   on location tracking and entering my name as an  inspector this will then stamp to every record,   I'm going to capture, enhancing the quality of  the data captured by this big button interface. By pressing the big button,  I can also take a photograph   and enter the description regarding  the condition of this asset.   However, it's not just capturing information about  assets, the newly added location tracking allows   those back in the office to see my location and  the location of the assets and observations also.  

In order to enable this, next time  you're configuring a QuickCapture project   have a go locate enabling location tracking.  It might be quite useful for your next project.   Changing gear slightly, my next job takes  me this time to a more map centric view   using ArcGIS Field Maps. This is a map  centric data collection application   and allows you to capture high accuracy  point, line and polygon location data.   While I'm out inspecting bollards I'm going  to intake undertake a condition assessment   using a related record. There are enhancements  that have been made to this and including the   smart form that it opens. This is made easier for  entering data using the new choice form elements.  

This provides mobile workers with a list of values  that they can choose from when filling out a form,   such as, the condition. The asset that I've  been performing a condition assessment on is   in a pretty bad way and rather than completing a  condition assessment I'm going to jump the process   and add a new job request, on the spot, using  these improved related record capabilities. While I'm completing this job order, I've  happened to come across the area manager   who needs a hand with quoting to fix the issue.  By entering in the quality of material needed  

to recoat and the subsequent cost per unit  of that material I can then calculate an   estimated remediation cost on the spot. This  is using the new support for form calculations,   which can configure specific equations  and calculations within the form,   allowing me to automate data entry such as a  total cost, on the spot. Do note is QR codes   and barcodes have seemingly come back in fashion,  do give it a go leveraging the new RFID capability   inside ArcGIS Field Maps. This uses the  InfraMarker app integration. My final task   takes me over to the other side of the harbour  to perform a check on recent repairs to another   asset that's been an issue. For this task I'm  using Survey123. This is our form-centric data  

capture application and you'll notice recent  enhancements that have been made to the geopoint   capture. In the past there have been challenges  with users submitting with a default location with   many records appearing off a certain island, of a  certain continent, in the middle of the Atlantic.   This has been resolved by users having to  enter in a location and you'll notice also   when capturing a photograph it takes advantage of  the most recent advancements in camera technology.   So I'm going to submit the survey and then  click over to the new Survey123 web designer   capabilities, particularly when configuring  that specific default location. You can see   when I go into my geopoint question I'm able  to change a few things. In the web designer   I can now configure a specific geocoding service  based on what's available to my organisation.

And do note there's different  press to locate options available   inside the Survey123 web designer. So with my jobs done and going through all  this new functionality that's being added   we look forward to seeing how you use them to  improve coordination and efficiency in your field   operations. As you can see with the different jobs  I've been carrying out you can use field apps to   reduce or even replace reliance on paper. This  quality and quantity of information synced back   to either your online or enterprise environment  ensures that field and office staff can use the   same authoritative data. Going forward to keep  track of the new functionality that may be of  

use to your field staff check out the what's new  section of the product pages and the ArcGIS blog.   Thanks Ed, and just a heads up for any of  you out there who are still making use of   Esri's original mobile app ArcPad. After a long  and productive life, ArcPad is now retired and   therefore no longer supported, however customers  on ArcPad maintenance will be able to transition   to the latest technology just like you saw. Now  let's take a look at what many people think of  

as the fourth key part of the ArcGIS system,  ArcGIS Enterprise. ArcGIS Enterprise underpins   a huge amount of the work that you do offering  an on-premise or private cloud complement to   ArcGIS Online. Like the rest of the ArcGIS system  ArcGIS enterprise has seen some new developments   recently and to take us through some of these I  want to pass back again to Boudewijn. Hi everyone,   ArcGIS Enterprise is the foundational  system for mapping and visualisation,   data management, spatial analysis and application  building installed on infrastructure you control.   Let's have a look at some of the key highlights  of the current release 10.9.1. First there will be  

some updates to the runtimes of ArcGIS enterprise  currently ArcGIS Enterprise contains two internal   runtimes one is used to run services published  from ArcMap and the other is used to run services   published from ArcGIS Pro and when you consider  upgrading to ArcGIS Enterprise 11, that is planned   to be released later this year, only the ArcGIS  Pro runtime will be included that means that if   you upgrade to ArcGIS Enterprise 11 you won't  be able to publish services from ArcMap anymore.   Also services that have been published  from ArcMap will no longer work.   But the release of ArcGIS enterprise 10.9 will  have tools available to upgrade existing map,   image and feature services to the new  runtime other services like geoprocessing   and geocoding services will need to  be replaced from ArcGIS Pro prior to   or after upgrading to ArcGIS Enterprise 11. The  10.9.1 release comes with many updates to apps,  

the new map viewer is included by default with  10.9.1 with a much improved and modernised UI, it   allows you to create prettier maps more easily and  intuitive. Instant apps are the next generation of   configurable web mapping apps that can now be  easily created straight from the map viewer or   directly from the content page. You can also start  using the new ArcGIS Dashboard which is built   on the ArcGIS JavaScript API 4.x with improved  performance and new capabilities. The scene view,  

the scene viewer has received an update as well  to allow for editing features inside the scene   viewer, create elevation profile charts and when  you have changed the symbology of a layer you can   now save that to the layer, so the next time you  use that layer it will use the saved symbology.   Just like ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Enterprise  now supports cloud data warehouses   you can now register Google BigQuery, Snowflake  and Amazon Redshift with ArcGIS Enterprise. And ArcGIS Enterprise on Kubernetes is the  latest deployment pattern for ArcGIS Enterprise.   Kubernetes accompanies Windows and  Linux as supported operating systems.   It's a completely new cloud native  architecture based on containers for   software delivery Kubernetes for Orchestration  and Microservices for scalability and resilience.   It is supported on AWS, Azure, Google Cloud  and on-premises using Red Hat OpenShift   and for most organisations the Windows or Linux  deployment patterns are the preferred option.  

This new deployment pattern is especially  interesting for large environments with   unpredictable demand where there is understanding  about Kubernetes in the organisation.   And this was just a selection of what's  new in ArcGIS Enterprise and check out   the documentation and the Esri blogs  for a full overview of what's new.   We now want to look at some of the more  focused applications which build on top of   the core ArcGIS system and which address specific  areas of use. The first of these is ArcGIS Urban.   ArcGIS Urban is a smart city planning and  engagement tool which enables planners and design   professionals to collaborate with a web-based  3D application, supporting scenario planning   and impact assessment. To tell us more about the  latest editions of ArcGIS Urban, as well as how it   can be applied specifically for New Zealand  use cases, I want to pass over to Omid. Hi,  

in this demo I would like to briefly introduce  Esri ArcGIS Urban, its updates and some examples   on how it could be applied in New Zealand urban  planning context. Esri ArcGIS Urban is the next   generation of geo-enabled planning tool for  creating digital twin and smart city planning.   It merges a digital copy of the built environment  with web-based interactive zoning, analysis   and planning tools. ArcGIS Urban contributes  to a more efficient decision making through  

smart visualisation scenario modeling  and the interactive interface.   ArcGIS Urban has many features helping  planners to create a digital twin,   some of these features are specifically helpful  for achieving national policy statement or urban   development or NPS UD requirements.  For instance in ArcGIS Urban suitable   areas of intensification could be specified using  suitability models, different housing typologies,   including the missing middle housing typologies  could be modeled and planners can test different   zoning height and coverage regulations to enable  intensification. In the next slides I would like   to share new features in ArcGIS Urban February  2022 release with examples from New Zealand.  

Suitability models help planners to prioritise  parcels for development in the new release you   can save multiple suitability models per plan or  copy a model to compare different model outputs   and play around with weights and classification  approaches. We can explore parcels and see how   each criteria contributes to the parcel's final  suitability score. The export scenario to web   scene functionality writes the suitability  model scores to the parcel's attribute, each   parcel includes the final suitability score along  with the values and weights of each criteria. Using viewpoint functionality we can  capture multiple views of a plan which   helps us to better understand how the plant  fits into the existing development. In this   example we can view high-rise, mid-rise and  low-rise residential development landscapes   and how they fit into the context of the city. Now we can create a copy of an urban model by  exporting urban database to a file geodatabase   when creating a new urban model a file  geodatabase is a new option allowing us to choose   our local urban database and apply that to our new   model. Here you can see space use types and zoning  types for example are exported into our new model.

The plan or project details card can now be viewed  directly in a plan or project in the newly added   detail mode. As well as details mode dashboards  with all the metrics such as dual links and   population capacity is available and citizens can  put their location based comments and feedbacks.   The split tool is improved  to avoid multi-part polygon,   this feature is useful when dividing typical large  residential parcels for intensification. In this  

example, a parcel is divided into four separate  parcels and is assigned high-rise and mid-rise   apartments and higher population  and housing capacity is enabled.   So the geospatial capabilities of ArcGIS  Urban are growing with the upcoming features   such as supporting local coordinate systems,  transportation support and the enterprise support.   For more information on ArcGIS Urban check out our  latest video on New Zealand Esri User Conference   2021 the link at the bottom right of the page. So  as you have seen ArcGIS Urban offers many useful   functionalities for smart city planning and  meeting NPS UD requirements. I hope you found   this demo useful and feel excited about leveraging  ArcGIS Urban for your own city planning projects.   Please feel free to reach out for further  details or any questions regarding ArcGIS Urban,   thank you. Thanks Omid. I can't help but think  that ArcGIS Urban is like a SimCity for real life.  

Now I want to take a look at another technology  while staying in the area of built environments.   BIM or building information modelling, has long  been considered a separate but related discipline,   with many parallels to GIS. A few years ago  a very significant alliance between Esri and   AutoDesk paved the way for the creation of tools  to facilitate two-way sharing of information   between these sister systems. This was driven  by the growing demand for data to be exchanged   without the need for complex ETL and customisation  work. One of the products of this collaboration  

is Esri's GeoBIM. To tell us more about this as  well as provide an update in the latest advances   in Esri's Drone technology, also heavily used  in the AEC space, I want to pass over to James.   Today I'd like to show you a new application  within the ArcGIS system. That application   is GeoBIM. GeoBIM is the joining together of BIM  content created with specialist engineering tools   alongside your GIS and its content. This is a  new piece of technology that can access Autodesk  

BIM 360, AutoDesk Construction Cloud, as well as  Forge Viewer and reading their graphic features   and models. These models will be connected through  a new item type called a GeoBIM project, directly   linking to our ArcGIS Online or enterprise  features. While there are currently connectors   to AutoDesk applications this will be the first  time that there is a cloud to cloud connection.   With a cloud connection to BIM 360  established it allows users to build   applications on top of those GeoBIM projects  these can support design and construction   and operations of a building  in geographic context. In this demonstration, we have  a facilities manager interested   in understanding the current state of the  portfolio of assets that they look after.  

To do this we will utilise the up-to-date and  maintained design drawings as our source of truth,   alongside our existing geographic data.  Here in this configured GeoBIM application   I want to give my facilities manager a 2D view  of their portfolio. For boundary boxes derived   directly from AutoDesk. This can give an at  a glance view of the scale of a portfolio,   if I toggle to the 3D view now I can present  myself with a better sense of terrain. I can   add in contextual GIS layers like 3D building  outlines and trees to get a sense of surroundings.   Additionally I can take an extra step here and use  these features now in my GIS to perform analysis   on the proximity of my design to nearby buildings  and how they affect each other for example. I can  

also bring in nearby water utilities to see where  we'll be linking into the original design file.   Here I can see the source of truth Revit design  as a document as door document represented here   as a building scene layer of the new Linwood  swimming pool if I browse around and interact   with one of the features here I will gain the  ability to prompt my Forge Viewer, this will   link to the original design with my selected  feature highlighted. This application shows how   our facilities manager, or any non-technical staff  member for that matter, can use GIS as that touch   point to access greater detailed documentation  from the facilities that they manage. My final app that I'd like to  show you is the issues dashboard,   this enables stakeholders and project  managers to monitor progress of construction.   This dashboard can also help to understand where  issues are occurring across the project and if   there are common trends there. This inspection  workflow can be further enhanced by linking in   with the ArcGIS Field Apps, for example. This the  great thing about having these configurable apps  

is that you can have specific apps targeting  the design, as built or operation phases   of a project depending on the intended  audience. As you can see ArcGIS GeoBIM has   the possibility to be your foundation for your  projects across the asset lifecycle. Your GIS,   a source of authoritative spatial data, can act  as the touch point to other authoritative systems   and information sources through  the common link of geography. It doesn't matter if your facilities  manager, contractor or even GIS Analyst,   you can see the benefit of having a lot of your  asset information in one place or within a map.   I want to turn your attention  very briefly to ArcGIS Indoors.  

ArcGIS Indoors aims to extend the life cycle  of your CAD and BIM data into interactive   indoor maps. ArcGIS Indoor models your sites,  buildings and floors all within a single view.   So all of your facilities data is organized and  secured and indoor maps for various facilities   and workplace operations. This data is  surfaced through a few different applications,   the first is a web app that makes all of your  facilities information securely available through   floor web maps, directly in the browser in 2D or  3D. The same data is surfaced through a mobile   application which allows you to navigate  the floor aware maps, online and offline,   you can even book meeting rooms and view  events. Finally there is an app to manage   your indoor spaces that enables planners and  administrators to quickly visualise space time   allocations and assignments of people to  certain spaces such as desks and offices.  

In addition to Indoors there is now ArcGIS  IPS. IPS is an indoor positioning system   that lets users locate themselves and  others inside a building in real time.   Similar to GIS, I'm sorry, GPS and outdoor maps it  puts a blue dot on indoor maps and uses location   services and indoor beacons to help people  navigate to any point of interest or destination.   This allows employees, customers and visitors  to better navigate and operate within buildings.   Both of these capabilities allow you to make  even greater use of BIM and CAD data and combine   it with GIS to bring indoor to bring mapping  indoors too. Finally to finish off our BIM   facilities management and GIS section I want  to talk a bit about Drones. Drones continue to  

play an important role as data capture tools  for analysis and map production purposes.   There are currently two main offerings, Site  Scan which is the SaS offering allows users to   fly and capture imagery, store, process and share,  drone imagery outputs in a cloud environment.   There is also ArcGIS Drones2Map the desktop  equivalent both applications allow reality   capture in the form of orthomosaics 3D texture  meshes, point clouds and elevation products.   To demonstrate some of the data capture side I'll  head to a tasking application that is configured   using Experience Builder. Now I'm still in charge  of facilities and I have a couple of locations I  

want up-to-date imagery for for inspection and  maintenance purposes. These polygons represent   the flight area that I want my Drone pilots to  cover. Next I'll head to Workforce and assign   my pilots the specific tasks to complete these  flights by a certain date, let's say by tomorrow.   Let's now jump across to what my pilot will see. First up my pilot is going to open up Workforce  and see that they have a couple of assigned   flights to complete. I'll go ahead and acknowledge  those. Next I'll open up SiteScan Flight, the   flight planner that allows for autonomous Drone  flight and pre-planning or flight parameters.  

Here in this flight setup I can bring in both  my workforce layer filtered my assigned tasks,   as well as the polygon features  for the desired coverage area.   A new capability of sites sightseeing flight  is to automatically adjust the flight boundary   to existing ArcGIS Online layers  saving pilots time in the field   as well as improve repeatability of  flights, such as this facility scan.   Next it's just a matter of hitting fly and sending  the images to SiteScan Manager for processing.  

Back in the office my facility manager now  has access to the process imagery products   to interrogate the facilities from  the comfort of their own desks.   Now we only had time for a couple of new features  today but I encourage you all to take a look at   some of the new and exciting capabilities  within drone capture and drone content.   I look forward to seeing how you are  using it within your own industries.   Thanks to Christchurch City Council for the data  in that BIM example and thanks to James for giving   us that update on ArcGIS GeoBIM as well as  a quick overview of the latest developments   in drones and the exciting area of Indoor GIS. So  now moving from above and inside we want to move   to underground, well sort of. The ArcGIS Utility  Network allows the creation of fully connected   digital twin for asset operators to design,  manage and analyse their water, electric, gas   or telco networks. The UN technology is rapidly  evolving and has grown in adoption globally and  

in New Zealand. To tell us more about some of the  latest functionality I want to pass across to our   newly wed Phil Greville. Hey everyone, today I'm  going to be taking you through some of the new   improvements and updates for the Utilities Network  in ArcGIS Pro 2.9 and ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1.   Basically the new updates can be broken  down into two sections, uh one that   just significantly improves sufficiency with  workflows in ArcGIS Pro and the other one helps   with data outputs for talking to third-party  integration software. Um, so yeah, let's get  

started. So in the first section of updates as  I said they just make some of the workflows in   ArcGIS Pro a little bit more efficient, so you're  now able to migrate UN data using copy and paste.   While it's still best practice to use asset  packages for staging your Utility Network   using a copy function can be handy for users  just operating the UN on a file geodatabase   before moving to production to an Enterprise  database. Next there's been some changes made   to upgrade data set geoprocessing tool so when  you upgrade to Utility Network version five,   I'm gonna mention a lot of versions here, you  need ArcGIS so Utility Network version 5 ArcGIS   Pro version 2.9 you're no longer required to  update the geodatabase if it is version

or later, basically what this means is that you  no longer need to use this geoprocessing tool if   you're using all of the up-to-date versions of the  software. And lastly asynchronous processing has   now been made default for four geoprocessing  tools, um again some of these updates will   go relatively unnoticed but they're just making  your workflows just a little bit more efficient.   So the next section of updates help with  third-party integration and so now domain   descriptions are included in the JSON output  when exporting sub networks so basically this   means it's just easier easy to understand rather  than having coded domains and translating the   coded domains the domain description is now there  for you to read. Also trace results now include   connectivity and element results exported to JSON,  so what this means is that you no longer have to   export loads and loads of JSON from exporting the  sub network you can export a trace result from   the trace you've run in ArcGIS Pro to JSON and  then import that and get the third party software   to read that. And lastly the error inspector is  now available in UN so the last two points I'm  

going to show in a bit of a demo. Now so moving on  to the demo, uh so in this demo I'm just going to   show you some data from the Queenstown District  Council they were kind kind enough to offer us   some data to demonstrate their utility their water  utility network and so what we do in this demo is   uh just run a trace. So initially I run just  the standard trace with the selection output,   so you select selection and new selection. When  you run this this will give you the usual output   of highlighted features, but you can now also add  connectivity or the elements result types which   gives you a contingent value of that to output to  JSON format. As I said this only returns a small   amount of JSON rather than the entire subnetwork  with the export subnetwork geoprocessing tool.  

Once it's run here you can see the JSON  output from that that trace that I just ran. And so next I'm going to show you the error  inspector, let's find the bookmark um and so   I've got a couple of areas that I made here and  so the error inspector can be found in the data   tab in the Utility Network and it allows you to,  you can filter your errors to the screen extent,   toggle through and select your areas and you  can zoom to errors, zoom to the water device. And it also provides you with details about the  error and details about the feature that the error   is associated with, so in this case the errors  are associated with the terminal connections so   I just need to change the terminal connections  associated with the pump. Now once I do that so   I make that high pressure out, apply that, and  I'll make the other feature low pressure in.

Once I've applied both of those edits I can  validate that and I'll fix my errors, there's   no more errors in the error inspector. Cheers,  thanks for listening to me team, uh if you would   like to know a little bit more about the updates  that I've talked about today visit the ArcGIS blog   site otherwise if you'd like to get started with  the um feel free to contact myself or one of the   Eagle team and I'm sure we'll be able to help you  out. So yeah, look forward to hearing from you and   thanks again. The last technology area we want to  look at is a series of relatively new applications   which complement the other ArcGIS system  components to fulfill specific purposes   for specific types of users or groups. Whether  working with real-time data, integrating GIS   data into gaming engines or providing a common  operating picture for a mission or activity,   to briefly take us through these  applications I want to ask James   to join us again. Esri are always working on new  and exciting applications that aim to expand GIS   into new areas and industries. A great example of  this is game engines currently ArcGIS integration  

with game engines is provided through the  ArcGIS Maps SDK as a developer product. It   integrates with the two market leading game  engines, Unity and Epic's Unreal Engine.   Both are distributed as plugins within these  apps and provide a UI and APIs to access access   ArcGIS services and local data. This enables  you to create local and global 3D experiences   through a scene which provides the context  to display ultra-realistic visualisations of   your GIS content. You can even interact with  geospatial data through scenario modeling or  

animation creation. And all the work you do will  honour real world geographic coordinate space.   The public beta is open now with the expected  final release around April this year,   so if this interests you head to Esri's  early adopter page for more information.   ArcGIS Velocity extends Esri's geospatial cloud  with real-time and big data functionality,   it provides a wide variety of capabilities for  ingesting and working with observation and sensor   data. You can just configure out-of-the-box  connectors to bring in data from IOT platforms   and third-party APIs. It's also  an end-to-end system for analysis  

supporting analysing data in real time in  near real time with scheduling and overtime,   and you can take immediate action  as a result of your analysis,   sending alerts and notifications for triggering  down screen downstream processes, if you have a   need to bring real-time information into your GIS  then velocity is a user-friendly way to do this. Finally I want to show a brief slide to introduce  SURE, the newest suggestion to Esri is imagery map   production tools, you can think of SURE as a new  image processing engine that can automatically   process imagery input from precise orientation  data or LiDAR to generate high quality outputs   these. Outputs can include what we will what we  call true orthomosaics or another name for the   DSM orthomosaic this is a reference to placing  all the imagery including rooftops and the   correct horizontal position, as well as highly  accurate and realistic 3D meshes and point clouds.   To show you what I mean, I have an example here of  the city of Frankfurt, this imagery was captured   at 10 centimeter resolution and stitched together  using SURE as you can see, the results are quite   impressive, showing really fine detail  of the many buildings within the scene.   I hope these quick product intros  have been useful starting point   for thinking of new ways to leverage new  kinds of data within your own organisations.  

As you can see the development teams at Esri  have been busy delivering some great new   applications for you to use. Finally I want to  share some information on a new and yet old app.   Almost all of you will be familiar with ArcGIS  Story Maps a great way to combine your ArcGIS   maps and data with a narrative that is  accessible to an easy to use web map.   However we want to be able to include maps  in your stories even if you've never had any   cartographic or GIS training and are not a GIS  professional that's why Esri created StoryMaps   Express. These easy to create applications  open up the power of story maps to everyone.   Learn more about them at storymaps.com.  That brings us to the end of the technology   update and although we've only provided a very  condensed view of some of the latest advances,   I hope that you've all seen something to take away  with you and to use in your own areas of work.   Having said that the ongoing development of  ArcGIS is an exciting one with a strong roadmap   full of new products and updates as  well as entirely new applications   all of these incorporating the latest technology  advances. Keep an eye on the Esri blogs amongst  

other things to hear about new technology  advances in between events like this one.   We've also shared a good number of supporting  resources that will allow you to learn more   about the many topics covered today, from links to  blogs to online learning tools and live samples,   you can check these out in the links listed  in the resource area for this session.   We also want to share with you some information on  some more events which we have for the community.   The Eagle webinar series is completely free  and covers a large range of topics each month,   check out the list of forthcoming webinars  in the resources, we also hope to be able   to share some more information on the 2022  New Zealand Esri User Conference very soon,   so please stay tuned. We really hope that we  can all meet face-to-face soon. Finally I want  

to thank all of today's presenters for helping to  show the latest ArcGIS Technology and of course   thank all of you for joining us today we hope that  you enjoy the rest of your RUC event. Mā te wā.
