ArcGIS 10.5 is Here

Esri released this week [December 18-24] ArcGIS 10.5, the world’s most power spatial analysis technology platform.

ArcGIS 10.5 is touted as the “next-generation analytics technology” for innovative organizations. Esri said ArcGIS 10.5 arrives at a time when organizations worldwide are challenged to make sense of real-time digital information. It [ArcGIS 10.5] helps them glean insight from enterprise data, big data, and the Internet of Things and share that insight in intuitive ways.

Esri President Jack Dangermond said, if organizations are not looking at data spatially – as it exists in the world around them – they will overlook patterns and trends that impact their business and clients. ArcGIS provides the tools to accelerate their digital transformation, helping them master the analysis of big data, real-time data, and information from the Internet of Things.

The heart of Esri ArcGIS 10.5 includes:

  • Improved capabilities for handling large-scale analytics and big data.
  • A drag-and-drop interface that streamlines the creation of spatial analysis through maps, charts, and graphs.
  • Collaboration features to connect and analyze information across the enterprise.

ArcGIS 105. is powered by Esri ArcGIS Enterprise, a significant evolution of the technology formerly known as ArcGIS for Server. ArcGIS Enterprise has been update to meet the needs of today’s information-dependent organization, with improved power to process and analyze large, disparate datasets. Data that once required hours of processing can now be analyzed in minutes, delivering quick insight from billions of data records.

Also, ArcGIS 10.5 meets the challenge of analyzing big data with these capabilities:

  • Improved integration of social media feeds, allowing users to integrate Facebook and Google accounts using their own logins.
  •  Ready-to-build, sharable solutions for raster, vector, and tabular data.
  • Streamlined deployment to leading cloud providers, including Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and IBM Cloud.
  • Enhancements to Esri ArcGIS Pro and Esri ArcGIS Online – including batch-analytic toolsets, vector tile basemaps, and code-free app building – that rbings 3D data from drones and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to mobile devices.

Another prominent feature of ArcGIS 10.5 is Esri Insights, a drag-and-drop interface that streamlines spatial analysis of geographic and enterprise data through intuitive maps, charts, and graphs. In addition, enhanced collaboration tools allow users to break down siloes and deliver insight across departments and agencies.

Esri added that organizations can deploy Esri ArcGIS in the manner that best fits their business needs – on premises, in the cloud, or as software-as-a-service (SaaS) – with industry-standard security and scalability. . . . [and] ArcGIS 10.5 makes it easier for organizations to discover and deliver insight from important data. Through this cutting-edge platform, organizations can leverage the world’s most powerful spatial analysis technology anywhere, on any device, behind the firewall or in the cloud, and can easily discover the spatial insight that matters to them – more quickly, more efficiently, and with more confidence.
