00:01So with that, let me introduce our first presentation from the development team, please welcome Jim McKinney and James Tedrick.
00:11Good morning, everyone. I'm Jim McKinney, and I lead the Desktop development teams...
00:14...and we've been working really hard on finishing up 10.2 for you.
00:17The software should be available to you in about a week or two.
00:21This is a significant update and delivers on your guidance and ideas in many ways.
00:27Here's a few of the big things that we worked on: Quality and performance - Hundreds of issues reported by you or uploaded to us...
00:35...through the Esri User Experience Improvement Program are simply fixed.
00:40Extensive performance improvements - Thank you, one clap.
00:44We fixed a lot of stuff. Thanks.
00:51Extensive performance improvements in geoprocessing tools and when using very large datasets like imagery and imagery caching.
00:58Security improvements - Our goal is secure single sign on across the ArcGIS platform including Desktop. Thanks.
01:06Extended geodata support - Simpler modification of schema and field properties in live geodatabases.
01:13New analytics - Many new geoprocessing tools and analysis services available on ArcGIS Online and accessible in Desktop.
01:23Many improvements in mapping and editing and better 3D.
01:27Imagery improvements - Faster imagery indexing and intelligent imagery search.
01:33Big data - New tools to support performing analysis in Hadoop and importing those results back into ArcGIS.
01:41Now I'd like to introduce James Tedrick to show us some of the top things that you asked for in ArcGIS 10.2 Desktop. James.
01:50Good morning. I'm James Tedrick and I'm here to share my top 10 favorite new features with ArcGIS 10.2.
01:58Kicking off the list at No. 10 are improved Excel tools.
02:02We've been able to read Excel since ArcGIS 9.2.
02:07What's new at 10.2 are two geoprocessing tools that you've asked for - one to automate the import process...
02:15...and the second to export Excel.
02:18Creating an Excel spreadsheet is as easy as opening the tool and selecting the layer.
02:27Now, instead of a CSV file, we get a native Excel spreadsheet. Just like this.
02:41The next improvement is for web developers.
02:44At No. 9, JSON conversion tools.
02:48Search for JSON and you'll get import and export.
02:52Saving a JSON file is exactly the same as saving an Excel spreadsheet.
02:58We have the option to save it as formatted JSON. So not only can the web apps read it, but so can the developers.
03:10Once saved, we can bring it into a web map, like this, where we see both the geometries and the attributes of the data.
03:19Just like that.
03:24No. 8 are new simplified tools.
03:28Here we have an analysis that shows a statistically significant hot spot of hospitals with patient dissatisfaction.
03:35Creating a valid statistical analysis like this is a multiple step process.
03:41New at 10.2 is an optimized hot spot tool that automates that entire workflow.
03:47So let's do this with the northeast.
03:50It's as easy as grabbing our layer and what we're measuring and then let the tool run.
03:58It's identifying spatial outliers, calculating the appropriate scale of analysis, and generating the hot spots.
04:04So, we see the results.
04:06There's a cluster around Boston of hospitals with dissatisfied patients.
04:12This is just one way we're making your analyses simpler.
04:23You, as an ArcGIS Desktop user, now have access to ArcGIS Online.
04:27That's No. 7 - ready-to-use services that enhance your analyses.
04:33To see how they work, let's take a look at Harborview Medical Center in downtown Seattle.
04:38Now, the rush hour should be well over.
04:40But to double check, let's bring in the traffic.
04:43In addition to live traffic, we also have access to geocoding, routing, closest facility identification, and service area generation tools.
04:52Well, maybe the rush hour isn't quite over.
04:56To figure out how the traffic is affecting the access to the hospital, we can generate some drive times.
05:05By setting the current time, we get an up-to-the-minute analysis based on the traffic conditions.
05:10We're doing this analysis against Esri's global updated street network.
05:17ArcGIS Online analyses right in ArcGIS Desktop.
05:28Now that we know the conditions around the hospital, let's see how this matches the patient information.
05:34That brings us to the next improvement.
05:37No. 6, PKI security integrated within ArcGIS Desktop.
05:44To get the patient information, we have to access the secured server.
05:48To do that, I need two things - the first is something I have - this smart card that my IT department issued me.
05:55I'll insert it, and now I need to bring in something I know - the PIN that authenticates this card back to the server.
06:07With both items in, we can get to the patient information, bring it into the map while it's still on that secured server.
06:16PKI security is an improvement that your IT managers will applaud.
06:27My No. 5 is sharing with Portal for ArcGIS. You now can share your maps as hosted services within your own organization.
06:38It's the same as sharing with ArcGIS Online, because Portal for ArcGIS is ArcGIS Online in your own network.
06:47These are your maps and your data being shared in your network for your organization.
07:01The No. 4 improvement are solutions that make your jobs easier.
07:07We're producing hundreds and hundreds of solutions like this public safety planning template.
07:14They contain the maps and the data you need to get started with our best practices.
07:20Some other solutions I found interesting is this one for calculating traffic incident analysis...
07:26...and this one for calculating helicopter landing zones.
07:30These are all available at the ArcGIS Resource Center where they're organized by community...
07:35...so you can easily find solutions that are relevant to what you do.
07:46Solutions for your developers are No. 3 - Esri on GitHub.
07:51GitHub is a social coding site where we're hosting our templates and applications like this social media template.
08:00You can view our code, download our code, and then go make your own code.
08:14The No. 2 improvement is performance, lidar for example.
08:20At 10.1, we could read LAS files in. At 10.2, we're indexing those files to optimize their display.
08:29So you can see them quickly over constrained conditions like network.
08:41Finally, the No. 1 improvement, it's also performance.
08:47We're rewriting our tools to make - we're rewriting our tools like weighted overlay to take advantage of the multiple CPUs...
08:56...you already have in your workstations.
08:59So, as this model runs, I can bring up the resource monitor and see ArcGIS Desktop...
09:05...taking advantage of all of the processors on this computer.
09:09This is parallel processing in ArcGIS for Desktop at 10.2.
09:18These have been my 10 favorite new improvements with ArcGIS at 10.2. Thank you.
