What's New in ArcGIS Online
Chris Messerich examines food deserts across the District of Columbia, using the spatial analytics capabilities and visualization tools available in the next release of the Map Viewer and ArcGIS Online.
- GIS professionals can bring data together, perform analysis, visualize results and share work quickly within the new Map Viewer experience in ArcGIS Online.
- Use analysis tools such as overlay layers and enrich (using the ArcGIS Geoenrichment service) to discover geographic patterns in demographic data and gain a better understanding of the communities affected by food insecurity.
- Having a record of analysis is important in a collaborative environment. ArcGIS Online supports viewing output layers and the parameters used in analysis tools so everyone accessing the data can build from the work.
- Bringing in curated Living Atlas layers like Justice 40 can help in assessing and identifying communities that are disadvantaged and how this population intersects with identified food deserts.
- Cartographic effects in ArcGIS Online such as drop shadows and blending add more context to the map for a deeper understanding of where to focus additional resources.
- Instant Apps in ArcGIS Online provide an engaging way to share results in reports. The Inset App allows users to view and interact with the data in multiple locations at once using map insets.
