1 Online Sharing at 10.1 Charles Convis, Esri Conservation Program Matthew Baker, Esri Development Society for Conservation GIS 2011 Conference

2 In this presentation… What GIS folks do now What the GIS cloud is now and whats coming - Universal Search - Universal GIS & intelligent maps - Universal Access How to use it now How to get it free Society for Conservation GIS 2011 Conference

3 What GIS Folks do now… -data collection -compilation -data management -spatial analysis -maps and reports …GIS professionals work via tasks and workflows

4 What we use the cloud for now for publishing.... Sharing With Others, one site at a time Share Users & Groups Search, within a site Author Specialized Sharing Sites & Online Applications Society for Conservation GIS 2011 Conference

5 Publishing Data Online… and Data Basin have made it easier to publish data but they are incomplete Publishing is the easier half of the data sharing problem, supply side: I have data and I want to share it. The much harder half is the demand side: I need data, where can I find it?

6 Society for Conservation GIS 2011 Conference I need your data, will you share it? … Data Sharing Primer of the National Geospatial Advisory Committee: - Make it easy to participate. - Identify standards to access, share and integrate data (=metadata) - Data sharing fails when one entity wants your data, with no consideration for your needs - Recognize the power of courtesy, professionalism, understanding The problem is trust, many people have data and don't want to give it out because they'll lose control of it. They fear other NGO's might use it to compete with them, or businesses will use it to sell something.

7 Society for Conservation GIS 2011 Conference A bigger problem is finding data… All search now is site-specific. Conservation Geoportal was the only search engine that cataloged across all sites It worked because it was based on metadata and professional catalog/library approaches. Participants shared descriptions and werent required to give away raw data.

8 Society for Conservation GIS 2011 Conference Road ahead for Data Sharing… Universal Search Esris open-source geoportal technology will join with ArcGIS portal technology at 10.1, enabling universal cross-site metadata cataloging combined with access to data & services across all sites. Geoportal already catalogs 300,000 data sets Conservation Geoportal will be restored at as an Esri-hosted service

9 How we use the cloud now for GIS.... Sharing downloaded data with other GIS users Share data files Users & Groups: download data some custom apps Edit, only within a site Author Data is shared as downloadable packages Society for Conservation GIS 2011 Conference Mobile Access, usually not

10 Society for Conservation GIS 2011 Conference Whats coming for cloud GIS Esri is releasing a major new version of ArcGIS Online soon, transforming it into a complete cloud-based system for collecting, managing, publishing, serving, and mapping geospatial data. - Ability to automatically create hosted services (map tile and feature services). - Support for OGC web services. - Support for open data formats (e.g., shapefiles, GPX data, CSV tables, and KML). - Online services to process large image datasets (any format). - Easy creation of maps with symbology and other design elements. - Ability to do online geocoding, routing, and geometric operations.

11 Society for Conservation GIS 2011 Conference Intelligent Web Maps… Intelligent web maps are the new medium for delivering content and functionality to applications. They are composed of services that bring in basemaps and operational data as well as functionality such as pop-ups, editing, analysis, and custom workflows. Intelligent web maps represent an evolutionary step in the dissemination and accessibility of geographic knowledge and will facilitate many new forms of collaboration. We see this capability as a key building block for making geographic information pervasive and widely available to everyone. The benefit of an intelligent map is that it can be used in many different desktop, web, and mobile applications that take advantage of the functionality authored within it. For example, if a map is authored with editing, applications will support data collection. Intelligent maps can be configured with specific functionality without having to develop a custom solution.

12 Society for Conservation GIS 2011 Conference Data Ownership is protected… - Universal hosted GIS services at 10.1, all GIS data structures uploaded as map packages will auto-publish, into always-on universal map services, under your complete access control, (via groups) - When users share their data in ArcGIS Online, they retain ownership of their data and proprietary information. They can choose to share it with whomever they wishother users in their organization, or the open web. - Users can choose to publish data as an image service, where all raw data is private and map users only see images of the dataset, but these are images that in most well-designed viewer applications will be indistinguishable from the raw data. - It is important to underscore that Esris current attention to the cloud does not forego interest and investment in on-premises desktops, servers and mobile applications.

13 Society for Conservation GIS 2011 Conference Portal for ArcGIS… Portal for ArcGIS provides you with the same collaboration and sharing tools as ArcGIS Online but in your secure environment. It becomes the central repository for your authoritative content that users inside your organization can access to - Quickly create maps and apps using templates and web mapping APIs - Form groups to collaborate on projects or common activities - Share maps and apps with private groups or the entire organization - Embed maps and apps in custom web pages or blogs

14 ArcGIS Portal at your site Your system Your Spatial Data Existing ArcGIS Server(s) Optional Data Appliance Your Network Web Site Web APIs Web Applications Administration Tools Default Identity Store Sharing Services ArcGIS Portal Your web users Society for Conservation GIS 2011 Conference

15 Professional GIS vs consumer mapping… We make a fundamental distinction between simple web mapping supported by the consumer mapping systems and a full GIS platform such as ArcGIS. ArcGIS has far more capabilities for supporting the full GIS workflow including geospatial data compilation, management, spatial analysis, and mapping. Soon, Esri will release a whole new class of capabilities in ArcGIS Online that dramatically simplify discovery, access, and use of geographic information. This will provide the same easy-to-use mapping capabilities as those available on the popular consumer mapping sites. In addition, this platform will support the ability to maintain your complete GIS data in the cloud with capabilities to do web editing, spatial analysis, and a host of application developments. Users will be able to easily create and share maps, datasets, and models. They can automatically turn their GIS content into services and make it available within any devicesmartphones, web browsers, and desktop environments. This is a major step forward for Esri as it provides simple, consumer-oriented mapping and mashup capabilities along with the rich content and full integration with distributed ArcGIS enterprise systems. Society for Conservation GIS 2011 Conference

16 What is a Full GIS on the web?… Science and understanding. GIS is a tool of science and, as such, is evolving along with our understanding of geography and all that it describes. GIS allows users to bring together, overlay, model, and visualize phenomena, and create better understanding of situations. Improved decision making. The ability to visualize and analyze geographic information has improved the way individuals and organizations make their decisions. GIS has the ability to integrate and analyze multiple factors for a given geographic area and easily communicate this information back to individuals and teams. Creating efficiency. Organizations can save money and time and eliminate redundancy. Managing complex planning. Geographic planning of all sorts involves the ability to bring together large volumes of geographic information and integrate it, analyze it, and use it systematically for creative design. Communication. Maps have always been a form of universal language. Society for Conservation GIS 2011 Conference

17 UNIVERSAL ACCESS … Currently, Esri offers five mobile technologies: ArcGIS for Windows Mobile, ArcPad, ArcGIS for iOS, ArcGIS for Windows Phone and ArcGIS Desktop. Offline Use Support Later this year our iOS and Android smartphone platforms will support tile packages. These packages will allow users to cache their basemaps and use them out in the field when they are offline. In Q we will support off-line usage of both tiled and feature data. Users will be able to take their data into the field in areas with little or no connectivity and use it for projects such as data collection and editing. Once connected again, these changes can be synchronized with the server. Currently some devices already support offline editing thru Making a local copy of a service Society for Conservation GIS 2011 Conference

20 Esri is an open source organization… Esris tools and development environments have always been open, we share code and teach classes in it and have 2,000 business partners who develop custom applications based on our environment. ArcGIS provides open APIs and SDKs: REST, SOAP, JavaScript, Silverlight, Flex, iPhone, Android, HTML5, JSON ArcGIS supports open standards: OGC, GWG, ISO TC211, INCITS L1, DGIWG, OASIS, W3C,OWF, Apache, OWF, FGDC, INSPIRE and many other national GIS standards ArcGIS uses and supports open source In software development via Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL), In communities such as via Resource Center support, 52North Open Source, and FOSS4G, In products such as Esri Geoportal Server and ArcGIS Editor for OpenStreetMap Support for metadata in ArcGIS: ISO TC211, new tagging approach Esri openly published ArcGIS GeoServices REST API through the Open Web Foundation (OWF) and are working with OGC membership to make GeoServices REST API an OGC standard. Esri Geoportal Server is a free open source catalog used internationally SourceForge ( ArcGIS Editor for OpenStreetMap is open source (docs, app & source code are available on CodePlex (, released under the Microsoft Public License. ) Society for Conservation GIS 2011 Conference

21 The ESRI Conservation Program… It is most accurate to describe ArcGIS as a publically available GIS development environment supporting many open standards and open source tools -It also happens to include many complete applications built from that same environment. These are professional tools and thus are very expensive. -It is also developing an online GIS development environment with many paid and subscription pricing models. -The ESRI Conservation Program provides ArcGIS and its applications free to non-profits.
