00:04If you're like me, you often get last-minute requests to make a map.
00:07And to make good maps, you need great basemaps.
00:10You want your maps to be visually appealing, but they also have to communicate essential information needed to make decisions.
00:16Hi! I'm Katie from Esri.
00:18Today I'd like to show you just a few of the ways that ArcGIS 10 can save you time by giving you access to beautiful online basemaps…
00:25…can make your maps more informative by allowing you to leverage additional content…
00:30…and to help you to collaborate more effectively by allowing you to share your work directly from ArcMap.
00:36Let's assume that I have been asked to evaluate an annexation for the city of Fort Pierce, Florida.
00:43I have a list of store addresses, along with annual revenue numbers.
00:48Using online locators, it's easy to geocode these stores.
00:56For more clarity, I can symbolize these stores by revenue and click on any of them to see detailed information.
01:08Next, I need to choose a basemap to provide context for these locations.
01:13Since online content is easily accessible from ArcMap…
01:18…I can quickly search by keyword or browse featured content.
01:24Notice that there are a variety of basemaps to choose from, as well as other content layers such as demographics and congressional districts.
01:32Each map has detailed information about who published the map and how recently it was updated, giving me a level of confidence in the map that I'm building.
01:44The best thing is that the basemap is added to my document with a single click…
01:47…giving my data context and, more importantly, saving me time so I can concentrate on other work.
01:54So I started with just a spreadsheet, and now I have a pretty informative map.
01:58But I'm not done yet.
01:59To evaluate the annexation, I need to find a dataset that represents the city boundary for Fort Pierce, Florida.
02:07Thankfully, I already belong to a group where this data might be available.
02:11Groups allow me to collaborate more efficiently with defined teams of people by sharing layers and analysis results.
02:22Here I can see details of all the groups I belong to.
02:25And since I've signed in, all of this additional content is now searchable.
02:29In this case, I'm looking for the Fort Pierce city boundary.
02:32Now that I've found the layer I need, I can bring it into my project and add additional insights.
02:38The proposed annexation area is located to the south of the existing city boundary.
02:43I can quickly sketch the area, adding it to the city boundary layer with a different classification.
02:50While this sketch shows the affected area visually, the decision makers will also need estimates of the commercial tax benefit that could result from this change.
03:00A quick analysis can help us to generate this new information.
03:10Here the analysis results summarize the commercial tax benefit that could be realized by annexing this area.
03:17Since I've created new information, I need to share it back to the project team, which includes the decision makers.
03:22By simply creating a layer package, I can easily share it with the group through ArcGIS Online, helping me to collaborate more effectively.
03:32Using ArcGIS Explorer, my manager can readily access the information I've just shared to brief the city council and make informed decisions.
03:41Thanks for joining me today.
03:42I hope you've seen how ArcGIS 10 can help you to make beautiful, informative maps quickly and share your results in just a few minutes…
03:49…ultimately leading to greater productivity and more informed decisions.
