ArcGIS for the Internet of Things (IoT)

ArcGIS Analytics for IoT is a new real-time and big data processing and analysis capability in ArcGIS Online. It enables you to ingest, visualize, analyze, store, and act upon data from Internet of Things (IoT) sensors. With ArcGIS Analytics for IoT you can integrate streaming data to your maps, monitor critical assets, perform analytics and processing on real-time datasets, and automatically disseminate information and alert personnel when specified conditions occur. It also has the ability to design analytic models to process high-volume historical data in order to gain insights into patterns, trends, and anomalies in your big data.

Session 3 - 10:45 AM - 11:15 AM

ArcGIS Spatial Analytics tools and techniques

Explore spatial patterns to help derive insights on the characteristics of your datasets. This session will provide a perspective on exploring patterns in data with statistical tools offered within ArcGIS Pro 2.5. Attendees will be learning essential concepts and a standard workflow that can be applied to a spatial data analysis project.

Session 4 - 11:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Rapid Field Data Acquisition with ArcGIS Quick Capture

Using ArcGIS QuickCapture, you can rapidly record field observations. Collect from a moving vehicle while you scout locations, conduct aerial surveys, or assess damage, skipping or pre-setting details, and getting the important data ASAP. Send data back to the office for analysis in real time and eliminate time spent manually processing handwritten notes. See how to use the Quick Capture Project Designer, and the field application, and integrate it with other Esri field apps.

Break - 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM

Session 5 - 1:00 PM - 1:30 PM

ArcGIS Solutions for COVID-19 Response

The outbreak of COVID-29 has presented great challenges to the world. Esri has provided new Solutions that can be built on top of ArcGIS Online to help address some of these challenges.
