Data Visualization with ArcGIS API for JavaScript: Show Data by Color

Mapping data values by varying the color has been the most popular way to visualize geospatial data. Academically it is called choropleth by cartographers.

ArcGIS Runtime SDK 10.2.4 for .NET is available!

We are excited to announce the first commercial release of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET!  Download version 10.2.4 and use it today to build production-ready apps for Windows Desktop, Store, and Phone: https://developers.arcgis.com/net/

This release is culmination of work over the last two years, since the official release of the Windows 8 platform and Windows Runtime in late 2012.  During that time, we focused on refining the native app developer experience for .NET.  We discussed our vision for the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET, built as a new, shared API across native app platforms promoted by Microsoft.  We provided guidance for WPF developers seeking to transition from our popular ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF to our new SDK.  In the end we created a modern, high-performance ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET with support for offline workflows, sync-enabled feature services, shapefiles, client-side labeling and much more.  We look forward to seeing the great apps you’ll create with the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET!

For those who participated in the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET beta program, thank you for your valuable feedback.  The beta program was a great success, made possible by the contribution of nearly 3000 participants.   Although the beta program has completed, the beta community will remain open for a short time to host documentation pertaining to changes between 10.2.3 beta and 10.2.4, view the status of bug reports, and wrap up forum discussions.

Thank you and enjoy!
ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET Team

visualization-2-1

In the previous posts, we already learned how to display your data, and how to style your data by unique value with JavaScript API. You might feel content with simply displaying data on a map, but your audience may expect something beyond this. Where can they find the legend? What if they want more information about each feature on the map?

In this post, you will learn how to:

  • Use pop-up to provide additional information
  • Add legend
  • Trigger actions when a graphic is clicked

Data Visualization with ArcGIS API for JavaScript: Show Data by Unique Value

In the first post of this series, I mentioned a good way to determine which way to visualize your data is to ask questions about the purpose of the map. In addition to “where things are,” which we already examined in that post, you may also want answer questions like:

  • What chain does each restaurant belong to in my city?
  • What is the most predominant crop of each county in the US?
  • What level of crime risk does each census tract have?

Unique value renderer is good for answering your what questions.
