Server Object Interceptor (SOI) to Visualize Features with On The Fly Aggregated Values from Time-Series or Historical Observation Data

aggregated layer no UI

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

ArcMap showing point features and time series table

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

New Explorer ArcScripts additions

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.

Time Navigator Custom Task

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.

There’s also a YouTube video posted on the task, and Richie also includes a discussion of it at his blog.

We used it the other week for animating some of the fire spread data that we’ve been compiling. Here it is in use:

You’ll also find a number of other tasks for Explorer at ArcScripts, and we’ll be adding a direct link to ArcScripts from the Explorer Resource Center soon.
