Automatic registration allows you to automatically create links for your non-georeferenced raster image. The automatic registration process will create links from your unreferenced raster dataset to the same location on a referenced raster dataset.
This video will demonstrate how to automatically register your raster data.
The ArcGIS Full Motion Video 1.0 Add-In (for ArcGIS 10 and for ArcGIS 10.1) is available for download from Arcgis.com. This Add-In allows you to play live streams of video or video files in your map. Frames from the video … Continue reading
On May 24th, there was a Live Training Seminar that was presented on Working with Lidar in ArcGIS 10.1. A recording of this training seminar is now available to view online.
For your viewing pleasure: 4 videos to accompany the CityEngine: Philadelphia example we published a couple of weeks ago. The videos show the full ArcGIS – CityEngine round trip:
- prepare your data in ArcGIS for input into CityEngine
- generate a 3D city in CityEngine from standard GIS data
- urban planning using CityEngine: design in 3D
- export your design and bring it back into ArcGIS for further and analysis and sharing
Note: you need to download the latest CityEngine Urban Planning Example for updated rules!
Have a good Xmas break and see you back in 2012!

ArcGIS 10 provides a new Python
mapping module (arcpy.mapping) that allows you to interact with the contents of
map documents and layer files without necessarily needing to interactively open an
ArcMap session. The methods, properties and functions available in this
new map scripting API enable you, for example, to automate changing data
sources, modify layer properties, export and print maps, as well as automate the
thematic maps and map series. Because the new mapping module is part of
the ArcPy geoprocessing framework, scripts can be used within ArcGIS Desktop
but can also be published to ArcGIS Server as geoprocessing services making
it much easier to make mapping and printing capabilities available on the
The following links are resources
that will help you learn more about arcpy.mapping, get access to popular
sample scripts available for download, and
links to new training resources:
A new Introduction to
arcpy.mapping help topic is a great starting point. It includes
links to a new arcpy.mapping tutorial and general guidelines for working with
arcpy.mapping. ArcGIS Desktop help has a complete section
dedicated to the ArcPy mapping module. Embedded within the help topics
are over 100 different, practical help samples that can be copied/pasted into your applications. Be
sure to review the “Best ways to get started” section.
A video presentation called Python Scripting for
Map Automation in ArcGIS 10 presented at the 2011 Developer’s Summit is an excellent way
to get started. This presentation not only introduces arcpy.mapping but
also demonstrates many of its use cases.
presentation called Arcpy.mapping: Export a map in PDF format from a web
browser that demonstrates how arcpy.mapping scripts can be published as
geoprocessing services and published to web applications.
- Approximately 20
script tools that perform routine map and layer management tasks, printing and
exporting, as well as basic cartographic operations.
This is an excellent download because it
includes many practical code samples that perform a variety of tasks and they
are easy enough to modify for your own purposes.
- A script
tool that combines Data Driven Pages, arcpy.mapping, and the ReportLab site package to generate a reference map book that includes street index
pages. It demonstrates how arcpy.mapping can be used to extend Data
Driven Pages capabilities.
- A script
that incorporates Data Driven Pages and arcpy.mapping to build a map series
that includes dynamic graphic tables. There is a very complete README.doc file
included with the download that also addresses other useful tips and tricks
that go along with the application.
Basics of Python (for ArcGIS 10).
This course teaches fundamental concepts you need to know to create
Python scripts in ArcGIS. You will learn guidelines for proper Python syntax,
techniques to troubleshoot common errors, and how to use loops to test for
conditions and execute different code based on the result.
Python Scripting for Map Automation in
ArcGIS 10. This course teaches how to automate map production and
related data management tasks that would be time-consuming and tedious to
perform manually. You will learn how to work with the mapping module of the
ArcPy site package to quickly and easily update map layers and map document
properties, modify map content, and produce individual maps and map books.
Special thanks to David from the Mapping Team for sharing these links.
Using the ArcGIS 10 Data Driven Pages feature, you can quickly and easily create a professional-quality map book from a single map document. This seminar teaches the workflow for using Data Driven Pages. The presenter also covers how to create an index layer from a feature layer and add dynamic text and locator maps to your map pages.
Who Should Attend
GIS professionals and cartographers working in utilities, transportation, public safety, and government mapping agencies and others who need to produce map books.
The presenter discusses
- Data Driven Pages, map books, index feature extents, and geoprocessing tools.
- The process for building map books.
- Updating, printing, and exporting map books.
latest release of ArcGIS Online, you can now add shapefiles, text files (TXT
and CSV), and GPX files directly to your web map. You can drag data from
your computer onto your map or, with just the click of a button, add it to your
map in the ArcGIS.com
map viewer or ArcGIS
Explorer Online. Once you’ve added your data, you can configure pop-up
windows and change the symbols.
add your data to a web map, the ArcGIS.com map viewer and ArcGIS Explorer
Online automatically add the location information from your file, draw features
for each item, and store the information in the map.
addition to the above-mentioned formats, you can also add Open Geospatial
Consortium, Inc. (OGC), Web Map Service (WMS) layers to the ArcGIS.com map
viewer and ArcGIS Explorer Online. Simply click the Add button and
enter the URL to the service. The ArcGIS.com map viewer also supports the
addition of KML layers.
share your data or saved maps in ArcGIS Online so others can find them and use
them to create their own maps and mashups.
Just wanted to let everyone that the proceedings from the 2011 Developer Summit are now avaliable online.
Lots of good content here from Esri staff and some outstanding User Presentations.
Dev Summit 2011 is over and I’m still trying to recovery from the busy but great week in Palm Springs. This year was the largest Dev Summit ever and there were some excellent session and good times for the nearly 1400 attendees. Here is a set of photos and videos from the week. More video from the Tech Sessions will be coming soon.
If you attended this year, I hope you came away inspired and equipped to make the most of GIS in your applications.
Tell us what you thought of this year’s conference by taking a short survey. Your input will help us plan for next year’s conference.
