A new version of Dimension Explorer, an addin tool for ArcMap, has just been released by the Esri Applications Prototype Lab!
Dimension Explorer makes it easier to work with time-aware and multidimensional data in ArcMap 10.3.x by providing slider controls for navigation. It works by retrieving dimensional information from a map layer to build an interactive dimensional model that can be edited and saved in the map document. Dimension Explorer is the successor to the Timeliner addin for ArcMap, which also works in ArcMap 10.3.
Here’s what’s new in version 1.1:
- map layers created with the Make NetCDF Raster Layer and Make NetCDF Feature Layer geoprocessing tools are now supported.
- map layers with vertical dimension values defined as ranges (e.g. 0-10 meters, 5-50 meters, etc) are now supported.
- export a map animation in ArcMap to a series of still images to create video animations with applications such as Windows Movie Maker and ffmpeg. various bug fixes and optimizations.

New links have been added to the prior blog post An Ocean of Story Maps. Some of these include web maps and downloads in addition to the “traditional” Esri-style story map. Please feel free to bookmark and return as I will keep updating the original blog post throughout the year! There is a lot of wonderful work out there, including story maps in languages other than English.
Spatial analysis has always been a hallmark of GIS, the “numerical recipes” which set GIS apart from other forms of computerized visualization and information management. With GIS we pose questions and derive results using a wide array of analytical tools … Continue reading
