Server Object Interceptor (SOI) to Visualize Features with On The Fly Aggregated Values from Time-Series or Historical Observation Data
A sample SOI (Server Object Interceptor) is made available that helps visualize on the fly aggregated results by overcoming challenges presented in an earlier blog post. A map service, powered by this SOI, can be used in the ArcGIS Online Map Viewer … Continue reading
Visualizing Features with On The Fly Aggregated Values from Time-Series or Historical Observation Data
Time-series data stores observations, measurements, model results, or other data obtained over a period of time, at regular or irregular intervals. They can be broadly classified into two groups: One where the location of an entity moves over the time, … Continue reading
Remote sensing is incredibly useful for informing us about things that we would have a hard time figuring out on our own, either because of high costs or difficulty accessing remote areas, or the time it would take to survey … Continue reading
By Patrick Bergeron, postdoctoral fellow, INSPQ and Univerisité de Sherbrooke, Canada. Temporal floodplain delineation is an important aspect of many urban and environmental management plans. Water height data, measured under bridges or at gauge stations, are common and usually free. … Continue reading
ArcScripts is a place where users can share source code for Explorer tasks, and recently there have been a couple of interesting additions.
Edan Cain adds his Flip Book time series animator task, a handy task when you want flip through a sequential series of images or other time-related data. The visibility of each of the selected layers is toggled, and the task allows you to set an interval and looping options. This task was used during the Western Governors’ Association presentation, which we highlighted in an earlier post, to show the growth of the human footprint in parts of the US over time.
Kenneth Gorton also updates his popular GPS Data Manager for ArcGIS Explorer, delivering Version 2.0 which adds track playback, NMEA handling, and other new features.
Richie Carmichael (of ESRI’s Applications Prototype Lab) posted a Time Navigator custom task for Explorer a while back. The task has gone through several iterations and improvements, and the current version (including source code) can be found at ArcScripts.
We used it the other week for animating some of the fire spread data that we’ve been compiling. Here it is in use:
