ArcGIS 10 demonstration on a Wacom Interactive Pen Display, which revolutionizes the way professionals can interact with GIS data and perform GeoDesign.
00:07 Around the world, today's geographic information systems provide powerful tools that help people manage...
00:12 ...information like never before.
00:15 Recent innovations in these tools, like the introduction of GeoDesign, allow professionals to create, analyze...
00:20 ...and refine geographic data in real time.
00:24 GeoDesign is truly changing the way people work.
00:27 We can now design with geography.
00:30 An interactive pen display combines the viewing advantages of a large LCD monitor with workflow efficiencies...
00:36 ...like improved control, comfort, and productivity.
00:39 By using a pen directly on-screen, GIS professionals have an intuitive, new way to work across hundreds of different industries.
00:47 Pairing Wacom's interactive pen display with ArcMap allows firefighters and emergency responders to manage...
00:53 ...and share information about wildfires.
00:56 At the response command post, operators can overlay real-time information on a digital map...
01:01 ...to aid in the organization and deployment of resources.
01:04 Using a pen, these operators easily mark up maps, position symbols, and relay constantly changing...
01:07 ...organization and deployment of resources.
01:10 ...variables to response units on the ground.
01:13 Here we're looking at a satellite image of the city of Yucaipa, California, and I've just received word that there's a wildfire...
01:19 ...broken out and I want to make a map of that, which I can push out to firefighters out in the field, and make...
01:24 ...printed maps of that to distribute to other personnel, as well.
01:28 The ArcGIS 10 editing environment allows me to choose the symbols that I want to draw with; the Wacom interactive...
01:33 ...pen allows me to add those symbols to the map as I would if I was drawing on a standard paper topo map.
01:40 I'll begin by adding the uncontrolled fire edge.
01:42 When the fire changes, I can simply go in, create that new fire edge, create where I've actually completed a burnout.
01:50 That is information that's in the database, live; I save my edits, and I push it out through the server technology to the people...
01:57 ...out in the field who need it.
01:59 In urban planning and development, professionals can use the interactive pen display to sketch out, serve and chart areas for development.
02:06 In this particular scenario, I'm doing the work of a land-use planner who is looking at an area which has potential for redevelopment.
02:12 Using ArcMap, feature templates, and the Wacom interactive pen display, I can sketch out an idea for a master plan for an area.
02:20 First thing I'll do is create a commercial area.
02:24 I can just do a quick sketch and say, here is where I'd like the commercial area to be.
02:28 Maybe I want to put in some low density, maybe off to the side here.
02:32 Maybe I want to put in some moderate density, off to this side.
02:36 Maybe I want to put in some agriculture over in this area.
02:41 I can get immediate feedback over how much commercial, mixed use, agriculture, and so on, that I've added to my design...
02:48 ...just to keep me on track to make sure that I have adequate space for people to live, for people to work...
02:53 ...and for people to grow their food, in this case.
02:55 We're no longer waiting to see what happens and then mapping it.
02:59 We're creating it.
03:00 We're mapping it on the fly, we're analyzing it on the fly, and getting that feedback right away.
03:04 When used together, Wacom interactive pen displays and ArcGIS software provide a powerful combination that helps speed workflow...
03:12 ...and improve the effectiveness of professionals in the field.
