Place and Road Labels above Color Coded Maps

By Sooria Jeyaraman

How many times you have created a color-coded map from our list of close to 6000 variables (yes, I said 6000) and turned it completely opaque to see the colors come to life? There is one small problem with that. Once you set the transparency to 0% then you will not be able to see the roads or places below these colors. How many times have you wondered that it’ll be great if you have a way to look at these without losing your beautiful colors? If you are, you are not alone. Some of you brought this issue to our attention so, as usual, we decided to do something about it.

ArcGIS.com Popups and Business Analyst (Identifying Vulnerable Populations) – Part I

by Mehak Sujan

With the ArcGIS API for Flex 2.3 that was just released on April 15th, support for ArcGIS.com popups has been added.

Our team is really excited about this new added support and we want to do something cool to integrate it into the Business Analyst APIs.  I’ve written a sample application that demonstrates one way of identifying geographic areas which are most at risk to natural hazards and disasters (e.g. floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, fire, etc) within the country by taking into account demographic factors.  It blends together Continue reading

Taking Analysis to the Next Level: Part 2

 By Nathan Bennett

My friends on the Business Analyst team invited me to blog about some of the work I’ve been doing with the Business Analyst Online API.  As a Technical Engineer on Esri’s Technical Marketing team in Redlands, CA, I focus on creating cool demos and prototypes of our developer technologies.        

In Lauren Rosenshein’s blog post she wrote about a Silverlight application that allows decision-makers to look at crime patterns over time and create statistically significant hotspot maps of violent crime in the San Francisco area.  Once the hotspot map has been created, users, analysts, stakeholders, and decision makers can gain valuable insight into what’s going on in these areas through an exploration of demographic information. Continue reading

Sneak Preview: More Basemaps in Business Analyst Online

 by Sooria Jeyaraman 

Currently in Business Analyst Online we provide three different standard basemaps: Streets, Satellite and Topographic. Satellite has options to turn the road/place labels on or off and also provides the dates of the satellite images (this was explained in detail in my previous blog: BAO Snippet Image Dates). We’ve received requests from users to access other standard basemaps that come with some other Esri products. We’ve once again listened to our users and have done that and more… 

In the upcoming release of Business Analyst Online, the “Topographic” map button is replaced with the “More Maps” drop-down menu. Open the menu under “More Maps” and you will see Continue reading

Go Electric!

By Julie Powell

The folks on the Business Analyst team invited me to blog about some work I’ve been doing with the BAO API.

Recently I created a cool application to demo at my Esri Developer Summit technical session, focused on customization of the ArcGIS Viewer for Flex and the power of the BAO Flex API. “Go Electric” is an enterprise application that allows Go Electric management to view their current electric car charging stations, and evaluate the market potential for new charging station locations (note: “Go Electric” is a fictitious company, used to model a realistic scenario).
