00:01The next area we’d like to review is ArcGIS is online. So think about ArcGIS Online;
00:07...let’s do a couple framing components here.
00:10First, it’s a place for you to find, share, and organize geographic content.
00:18And ArcGIS.com is that Web interface to those services.
00:23Have anybody of you logged in or used ArcGIS.com? Can I see some hands?
00:29I see about half.
00:31So, what I’m going to want to challenge you all today is I want to see you begin to go up and use these services...
00:38...because there’s a lot of content and information you can take advantage of right now.
00:43And we’ll take some time now to review those components.
00:48There are three online elements of ArcGIS Online. Those are maps, applications, and resources.
00:58Maps, like Jen pulled in a map from ArcGIS Online and brought that into the desktop, allowing her to distribute that map...
01:07...not only at the desktop but in the Web and mobile applications.
01:11She also was able to leverage an editing template that she found on ArcGIS Online.
01:19There are applications you can take advantage of off the bat for discovery and presentation.
01:25ArcGIS Explorer Online is one of those, and if you haven’t been to that location yet and started to utilize that tool...
01:33...I’d consider taking that trip there tonight.
01:37And take a look at ArcGIS Explorer Online.
01:39I think you’ll be surprised at what you can do in terms of leveraging the content and services there.
01:46There are additional resources with ArcGIS.com that you can begin to utilize off the bat as well.
01:53It’s a place where you can do some data storage.
01:56It’s a place where you can create and join a group if you want to be able to start sharing information...
02:03...with your coworkers or colleagues about a given geographic area or problem.
02:08Also the ability to leverage and find templates. And we’ll be reviewing two of those today.
02:15So, let’s take a little deeper dive now into the elements about the maps that are available for you.
02:23We begin by looking at the basemap. And this is the place that’s fundamental for anything that you do.
02:31And we understand the importance of having the ability to have a basemap available.
02:36We’ve taken the time to create some core basemaps for you to leverage.
02:43These are ArcGIS Online and they’re map services that you can bring in.
02:48These are streets, topographic features, imagery, and also different types of demographic content.
02:55Think about when you began a project only a few years ago.
03:00To begin the project, oftentimes you had to assemble a basemap; you had to create that basemap.
03:06What did you do? You went to a government site probably, and if you’re building an elevation surface...
03:12...you’d grab that digital data, combine those quad sheets together, and then build a surface.
03:21Once the surface was complete, then you’d have to build your cartography to represent that.
03:27Then you’re ready to go. Now I can start my project.
03:30Well, here’s the place where you can do a jump-start for this type of information.
03:35These are available worldwide in seamless multiscale services.
03:44I understand that many of you already might have a basemap...
03:47...but consider how could you use some of these basemaps for different applications.
03:52Say you’re in a community and you have a mutual aid agreement with another neighboring county...
03:58...or you’re working outside of your jurisdictional boundary but you want to share the information...
04:04...that you have with other people.
04:06You could take one of these basemaps since these are seamless and available worldwide, put your data on top of that...
04:12...and then publish that and make that information aware to your neighbors next door.
04:18They could then enter in their information on top of that as well.
04:22So it’s a place for collaboration and discovery. Many of these basemaps are free...
04:30...a wealth of content for you to get started.
04:33I also can look at this example of socioeconomic content.
04:37Maybe that’s something you might not typically have in your organization but you want to take that and do a quick look at.
04:46I’ve placed some facilities that I want services in my county for people to have access to.
04:51By looking at that basemap layer that I didn’t have before...putting my locations on top of that...
04:58...I might be able to start to see and begin to understand do I have the correct location for these facilities?
05:05But it’s a place for you to jump-start your activity and discovery, a place for you to collaborate.
05:13An important element is not only the basemap and the services that are there but how you...
05:19...the GIS community, can contribute to that.
05:23We’ve come up and initiated a new program, the Community Basemap Program.
05:29What is the Community Basemap Program?
05:30Well, it’s interesting because it relies upon you, the GIS community.
05:38You maintain and collect the most accurate and authoritative information about the areas that...
05:45...you live and work and gather information.
05:49What we’re asking you to do is consider looking at how you can contribute some of that information to this basemap program...
05:58...and share that to the world so everyone can have access to multiscale worldwide sets...
06:06...of basemap services that are authoritative and up to date.
06:11So, what does that all mean?
06:13It means you providing a copy of the information that you have, you create a...
06:20...you take your data and put into an MXD, a template that we make available to you.
06:27You then create a cache of that on ArcGIS Server and provide us that...a copy of that cache.
06:34We don’t own that; we don’t maintain it. You all do. And then we just publish that map service free for everyone to use.
06:42So the community gets to leverage...the information that you have.
06:48It’s an interesting concept, and we’ll be describing that a little bit more in some of our demonstrations or if you...
06:55...have ideas of how you would like to share, feel free to discuss that with us today.
07:00The components are the Community Basemap template; pour your data into that.
07:06It’s like an MXD that has a simple set of uniform map features and styles.
07:13So, even if you don’t contribute to the program, you can begin to leverage those common map styles that allow you to...
07:20...publish a rich map service. We have several elements that we’re working on right now.
07:26We’ve completed the topography, and we’re also reaching out to you all now about streets and imagery.
07:33We have a few organizations in the state that have contributed to this already. Pasadena is one as well as San Francisco...
07:41...and I think we’ll be seeing maybe one of those two today in a demonstration.
07:48So, without further ado, let’s go ahead and review the basemap and the Community Basemap Program.
07:54Alright. Well, let’s take a look at the basemaps that are available with ArcGIS Online.
08:00First of all, how many of you have used ArcGIS Explorer Online? This is the application that I have up right here.
08:06Alright, just a few of you. How many of you have used ArcGIS Explorer Desktop?
08:11Okay, more of you have so ArcGIS Explorer Online is a complement to ArcGIS Explorer Desktop.
08:19And you don’t need to download anything. It is a Silverlight client that you can begin using.
08:24And one of the things that I can do with ArcGIS Explorer Online is create a presentation.
08:29So, let’s take a look at this presentation that I’ve got in here...about the world topographic basemap...
08:36...and that is the basemap that Tony has mentioned.
08:39And that is actually a unique map in that a lot of the sources of that map are actually government sources.
08:47So I have data in here coming from a number of federal agencies, such as USGS and U.S. EPA...
08:56...as well as National Park Service, for example, but also state and local agencies.
09:02So, for example, here is the city of Pasadena, and if we zoom in to Pasadena City College...
09:08...you can see the level of detail that is available on the map.
09:15You can see the actual locations of trees that they’ve got in Pasadena as well as parking spots on campus.
09:24Of course, Rose Bowl is also in Pasadena, so you can take a look at the level of detail here...
09:29...and what I want you to pay attention to as well is the symbology on this map.
09:35Now, let’s take a look at San Francisco, and let’s zoom in to Golden Gate Park.
09:41Again, immense level of detail, actual locations of trees, parking lots, and tennis courts.
09:48But notice one thing; the symbology is the same.
09:52So, we’re using that Community Basemap template to pull a variety of sources together into one seamless basemap.
10:01And here we are in Redlands, California, where we are now, and we can take a look at the Esri campus.
10:08So, we are right here in Building Q right now, and if you’re wondering where lunch is, it’s in the Café.
10:18So, you’ll walk out the door; the first building to your right is the Café. So, here we are; we used the map to get around.
10:29So, a topographic basemap is not the only basemap that is certainly available.
10:37Another one that we have available is the imagery basemap, and that one, too, is compiled from a variety of sources.
10:45It’s got at least one meter or better imagery anywhere in the United States.
10:51Here we have San Diego, California, a very high-quality image here.
10:56And also we’ve got commercial providers such as GeoEye Image that you see right here...
11:03...that is part of the basemap.
11:05In addition to those two maps, we have thematic maps such as demographic data, the geologic map for North America...
11:14...as well as content from other providers such as Bing Maps and OpenStreetMap.
11:22So when you are looking for that background framework...for that visual framework for your map, consider ArcGIS Online.
11:30You can use it in Web applications, and you can use it in desktop.
11:33Don’t forget that you can add it to ArcMap, and Jen has shown you how to do that.
11:38So, let’s take a look at how we can use these basemaps in applications.
11:46So, if I go to ArcGIS Online, one thing that you have in here is the gallery.
11:52So within the gallery, you have access to maps and apps that Esri has provided as well as those that users like you have provided.
12:02So there is one map that I find particularly interesting, and that is Healthy Food Access map.
12:09So, let’s take a look at that map. Again, I’m viewing it in a Web application, but this time, it’s a different application.
12:17It is not ArcGIS Explorer Online; it’s the ArcGIS.com Viewer.
12:21So, let’s zoom in to Redlands, and this is what this map is showing.
12:28Every neighborhood has been designated with a dot, and it’s either a red dot or a green dot.
12:35And red indicates that there is no easy access to fresh food, such as fresh fruits and vegetables within one mile.
12:43And the green dots indicate that there is such access, and actually this data is available for all of the continental United States.
12:52So one thing that we have done in here is we have put together a basemap from ArcGIS Online with another service.
13:01You can save this map to your account, so...before I can save that, it’ll ask me to log in.
13:09How many of you do have a Global Account with Esri?
13:15Alright. Hopefully most of you do cause that is one way that you can access information specific to you.
13:22But how many of you have linked that account to ArcGIS Online?
13:28Alright. Good. So in order to save maps that you create into your account and upload your data and be a member of groups...
13:38...you need to link your Global Account to ArcGIS Online, and the first time you log in, it is going to ask you that.
13:44So, now that I’m logged in, I’ll create the title for this map.
13:48I have to provide the tags, and the tags are a way for us to search for the data that other users have uploaded.
13:57So, once the map is saved, I will have the ability to share it.
14:02And I can share it with either everyone or people within a specific group.
14:10Another thing that I can do though is, if I share it, I can embed it in a Web site, my own Web site...
14:18...or I can create a Web application out of it.
14:21So, if I embed it in a Web site, it provides this code for me that I can copy and then, if I minimize this...
14:31...can go to Create a New Text File.
14:34Let’s call it Healthy Food and give it the HTML extension so that we can view it in a Web browser right away.
14:45And I’ll just simply paste the code that I copied from ArcGIS Online, and now I can run this file in a Web application.
14:54So this is simply an HTML file, but I’ve got that map viewer and all the services that were a part of it...
15:02...and it’s a good start for me to start to develop a personal Web site, but I also have the ability to make a Web application.
15:12And this is where you have access to a variety of templates that you can use to begin creating your Web application.
15:21So it’s a little bit more refined and provides you a better start for designing your own applications.
15:30And there’s instructions on how to use every one of those templates in ArcGIS Online.
15:35So next what I want to show you is how you can get access to those Community Basemap templates.
15:43And within ArcGIS Online there is a link to [ArcGIS] Resource Center.
15:47On the [ArcGIS] Resource Center, you have access to help and resources for all of our products...
15:55...specific functions within products, as well as user communities, and one of the user communities is the Community Basemap.
16:02So, first of all, within here, we have access to this layer that shows the participants in the Community Basemap Program.
16:12So you can see those agencies that are neighboring agencies that have started to provide their data to us.
16:21And, hopefully, some of you will consider doing it as well.
16:25So that way, we’ll take that information and upload it in our servers...
16:30...and it will be available to you in your own map applications that you want to serve to your customers...
16:36...as well as anyone else working within your area.
16:39So, what do you get with the Community Basemap?
16:42Well, if we go to the galleries, there is a link to templates and tools here, and there is a lot of helpful PowerPoints and links...
16:53...but one of the things is the actual template.
16:57So, once you download this, what you get is, you get a map document with all the symbology that you need.
17:05You get the data model. You get all the tools and scripts that you need to put together the Community Basemap.
17:12And I’ve got the download available right here; actually this sample dataset is the dataset for Redlands.
17:18So this is what you get; you get several group layers within here that each have the symbology specific for that scale.
17:27So you can take your data and put it within this data model...
17:32...and I want to encourage you to do that even if you don’t have every one of those layers.
17:37So, if you don’t have trees, it’s okay; you can still take advantage of that Community Basemap for your own use.
17:44And then also, you can work with us to upload the data, and actually what you upload is not data.
17:53I say data, but it’s not the data that you provide to us; what you provide to us is the caches from ArcGIS Server.
18:00So, we don’t store your data; we don’t maintain your data; we don’t get your data.
18:05You keep your data; what we keep is a picture of your data for use as the visual framework for yourselves and others within your area.
18:16Okay? So, let’s go back to the slides right here. Back to Tony.
18:24Great. Okay. So did you see the availability of the rich content that you can have on ArcGIS Online?
18:35There’s the basemaps; it’s also most importantly, it’s the ability to contribute that content...
18:42...as maps or part of the Community Basemap Program.
18:46I have several agencies and state government that are contributing a wealth of maps...
18:52...and I am also reaching out to you all to contribute maps and Community Basemaps as applicable...
18:58...because we’re trying to leverage what it is you have and share that withh the community.
19:08There are additional components on ArcGIS Online, and we’ll go into another demonstration in a second.
19:14But the components allow you to do things like share layers and map packages.
19:19And we saw a little bit about that already in our demonstration this morning with...by Jen...
19:24...the ability to take some of the content and create mashups and presentations...
19:30...or embed some applications into your things that you’re trying to do.
19:35Finally, the online storage and other resources that are there.
19:39Instead of me describing additional components, let’s jump into our second demonstration.
19:44So, let me go and open a different map document in here...
19:50...and what I want to show you is how you can work with ArcGIS Online data within ArcMap and how you can share your data...
20:00...more than just the basemaps with the general public as well as a particular group of colleagues.
20:10So, what I have in here is a map showing some data for DuPage County, Illinois...
20:15...and what I’m working on in here is the capital improvement projects for the year.
20:22So, first of all, what I want to do is I want to add a basemap. So, let’s go ahead and do that.
20:28And one thing I want to point out is we know this Add Data button, and that button is still there at 10...
20:35...but if you notice, there’s a little drop-down next to the Add Data button...
20:40...and what that allows me to do is add data that is local, add a basemap, or add other data from ArcGIS Online.
20:50So, first, let’s go ahead and add the basemap.
20:53So, let’s go ahead and add the topographic layer that we’ve been looking at.
20:59So, we’ll have a little bit of a better idea of where we’re working within that area.
21:06So, now I can start working with my capital improvement locations...
21:10...but what I actually want to do is I want to analyze whether...
21:15...any of these proposed capital improvement projects are going to interfere with the recreational facilities within the area.
21:22And I don’t have all of the data locally, but a colleague of mine has uploaded the bikeways layer to ArcGIS Online.
21:31So, let’s go ahead and search for that.
21:35So, notice that I’m signed in to my account...
21:38...and that will allow me to see not just public data but also private data that has been shared with a group that I’m a member of.
21:47So, let’s search for bikeway, and Adam, the colleague of mine, has uploaded this bikeways layer package.
21:58And a layer package is different from a map service in that once it comes in, it is actually downloaded to my desktop...
22:08...and you can see the link in there. It‘s a little bit hard to see...
22:12...but it is a file geodatabase that has been downloaded to my machine.
22:17So, right now, I’ve got the data, the symbology, everything local so I can use that data just like...
22:27...as if it was the data that started out locally on my machine.
22:30So what I want to do is I want to select those capital improvement projects that are within 200 feet of the bikeways layer.
22:44So you can see on the bottom there, I’ve got two features selected, so let’s go ahead and zoom to those.
22:51And take a look at those.
22:54Zoom to Selected Features.
22:56You can see I’ve got these two features selected. I can identify, I can edit them, if I’d like.
23:03So, so far, I’ve shown you how you can use resources that are available on ArcGIS Online.
23:09You can have basemaps that just give you the visualization framework of where you are, where you’re working.
23:17And we can also get the data that other users have created and made available...
23:24...but I haven’t shown you yet how you can put the data on ArcGIS Online.
23:29So, let’s take a look. I want to just take this capital improvement projects layer and create a layer package out of it.
23:37So I will validate the layer to make sure that there is nothing in there that would interfere with it being uploaded and then share.
23:46I have to provide the summary, so I’ll say this is CIP Projects for 2010. I’ll provide the tags.
23:54This is DuPage at CIP. I have to provide the tags.
23:59It won’t allow me to upload without the tags 'cause that is the main way that we search for the data.
24:06And now I have a choice of whether to share with everyone or share with members of particular groups that I am a member of.
24:16And here’s the DuPage County Capital Improvement Projects Group that I am a member of that I can just provide the data to.
24:23So, that way, it’s not available for everyone. Now the data has been packaged. The little geodatabase is being created.
24:32And now it is accessible within my account and for everyone that is part of that group.
24:38So, let’s go ahead and navigate to my content.
24:43And within here, this is the layer package that I have just uploaded, and it is only available for the group.
24:50So, I encourage you to use ArcGIS Online for sharing with your colleagues.
24:55You don’t have to make the data available to everyone right away...
24:59...and also certainly do contribute to the Community Basemap if you are able...
25:05...and continue using the basemaps in Web applications and in ArcGIS...and in ArcMap.
25:11Tony, back to you.
25:13Okay. Great. Switch you over.
25:16Alright. There we go.
25:24So, with ArcGIS Online, there’s a number of things that we’ve demonstrated and showed.
25:29First, it’s free and ready to use, and this is the resources of leveraging the cloud and those applications.
25:38Beginning to look at your workflow and how can you contribute content and start to access information as you need.
25:47It’s one of those great places to share your maps and your knowledge. Again, it can be made available to everyone...
25:54...or the ability, as Katja showed...
25:57...to create a group and share that information only with groups that need to complete a project.
26:04The participation with the GIS community; this is the place where it can happen.
26:10This is the resources and the information that you can use day to day.
26:15Finally, begin to use ArcGIS.com.
26:18Go there and start leveraging it, and you’ll be hearing us talk about that again throughout the day.
26:23But it opens up GIS to everyone...
