00:01The imagery team has made [ArcGIS] 10.1 smarter and faster.
00:06I'm just going to show you a few examples how this is making it easier to work with imagery on the desktop, server…
00:15…and the web for image processing, exploitation, and dissemination.
00:2210.1 makes better use of all image information. This GeoEye image of the Las Vegas airport just looks good when you open it.
00:35I want to explore and show you how fast. We're going to head on up to the Las Vegas Strip. Now that's pretty fast.
00:51There's the Stratosphere, one of the tallest structures in Las Vegas. Now I've zoomed in a bit too much, and it's blurry.
01:03We're introducing the concept of image processing templates that know how to build products…
01:09…from the raw image data and other information.
01:14I'm going to choose pan sharpen…
01:15…because it's going to give me the high resolution of the panchromatic and the color of the multispectral.
01:22Drag and drop. Okay. Did you get that? That was drag and drop, pan sharpen, and orthorectified on the fly.
01:43Okay, now the perspective on the building doesn't look quite right.
01:47But the system knows how to automatically rotate the image and provide me with a more intuitive view.
01:53This is as simple as checking Top Up.
01:59[ArcGIS] 10.1 has a new set of mensuration tools which allow me to take accurate height measurements off of imagery.
02:07This is possible because the tools can utilize sensor information like sun angle and acquisition time.
02:16This tool measures using a shadow. I simply select the top of the structure to the tip of the shadow.
02:27With all this image information, working with an image in [ArcGIS] Desktop is easy.
02:35But it's not just about image exploitation and analysis. Managing collections of imagery gets easier, too.
02:44Here I'm working with a single image.
02:46But mosaic datasets allow me to work with collections of images as if they were a single image.
02:54I'm going to build a mosaic. Now, a smarter system enables simpler choices.
03:03In this case, to build my mosaic, all I have to do is select how I want it to look.
03:09In this case, I'll choose natural color and point it to my folder containing images.
03:17My folder contains about 15 images, and there it goes, and looks pretty good.
03:25Now, because these images were collected on different dates, you can see there's color differences.
03:32[ArcGIS] 10.1 has an improved color balancing tool. I'm going to run it, select my mosaic, and go.
03:42The color balancing tool is just one of the many new and improved tools at [ArcGIS] 10.1. That was pretty fast, too.
03:54Okay, my mosaic looks good, and I want to create a web service and disseminate this imagery to my community.
04:02I'll simply select my mosaic and use Share As Image Service. I'll take some initial defaults.
04:13Now, I want to make sure that members of my community can both measure on this imagery and download the individual scenes.
04:22Next, I just need to provide a simple summary and choose some search tags.
04:30Finally, I want to make sure members of my ArcGIS Online groups can easily find this imagery, so I'll enable that, and publish.
04:42Publishing an image service in [ArcGIS] 10.1 is pretty easy. There we go. Alright.
04:55But sharing imagery is only valuable when we have a platform for collaboration.
05:01When I think of collaboration, I think of the web.
05:08Image services are more than cached maps. They provide rich content for web application.
05:15This is a focused web application that can take measurements off that Las Vegas image service to keep a GIS layer current…
05:25…and it's really simple. I simply select my mensuration tool…
05:29…in this case, I'll do base to top, measure up the side of the building.
05:34Once I have my building height, I simply select the building footprint…
05:38…assign a building height, and calculate approximate number of floors.
05:44As you can see with 10.1, you can get more value from your imagery because [ArcGIS] Desktop is easy…
05:51…sharing is easy, and working on the web is easy.
