This is the fifth blog in a series of blogs about what’s new in Business Analyst 10.1.
In Business Analyst one of our major development focuses is to improve the user experience by making our software more user friendly. Another step in that direction is the new Fusion Report Designer where we have made some significant changes to the report creation process to make building custom reports easier and less time consuming. In an effort to ease the transition from previous versions of our report editor, we thought it best to show you the changes rather than make a long list of the improvements.
To illustrate this I created a short tutorial video.
We are happy to announce the release of new data on Community Analyst. The following data updates are now available:
2011 Tapestry Data in 2010 Geography
The 2011 Tapestry data is now available in the Tapestry Segmentation Area Profile and the Dominant Tapestry Map. This data is now available in 2010 geography.
It is also available in the Color-Coded Maps, Smart Map Search, and Create Custom Comparison Reports features. Continue reading

Have you had time to play around with these new analysis capabilities to see for yourself all that you can do with Web Maps? If not, then you should because Continue reading
Esri is proud to announce the release of our 2011/2016 Updated Demographic Data. Our 2011/2016 data is based on Census 2010 counts and in 2010 geography to give our users the most accurate data in the most up-to-date geography available.
Census 2010 has revealed interesting changes in the demographics of our country – shifts in the distribution of the population, growth from immigration, increased diversity, fallout from the collapse of the housing market and the Great Recession, and increased vacancy rates. Using the Census 2010 data as the base for our 2011/2016 updates means those documented changes are incorporated, resulting in more accurate estimates and Continue reading

It also provides some ideas for possibly increasing citizen engagement.
