ESRI UC 2020: How ArcGIS is advancing with innovations 

The world is changing rapidly, and GIS techniques are essential to overcome challenges because of their exceptional problem-solving capabilities. GIS professionals are creating several independent systems and models to encourage sharing data and geographical knowledge across the globe. ArcGIS is an open platform that has helped the communities with their customizable, flexible, and interoperable properties. 

Better visual analytics in maps, tables, and charts have drastically empowered spatial and business analysts.

ArcGIS products like ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Hub, and ArcGIS Enterprise have become smarter with integrating BIM, 3D, AI, and new extensions such as Analytics for IoT. Jack Dangermond referred ArcGIS Hub as the workhorse during the COVID-19 situation in the latest Esri User Conference. Its usability, language translation, Survey 123 Integration, template builder, and Team Management have extraordinary collaborating abilities. 

Innovations new advances 

With the integration of new techniques, ArcGIS is now capable of 3D visualization & analytics, real-time visualization & analytics, data management, and mapping. Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, Data science, and spatial analysis in ArcGIS have made Remote sensing and field operations easier than ever. 

ArcGIS's ready-to-use content is like a Living Atlas of the World that builds a strong base for weather studies, transportation, community content, and disaster response.  

The new and improved form of ArcGIS has expanded POI's, enhanced imagery, better OSM integration to handle millions of maps, layers, and datasets. The advantages of integrating Jupyter Notebook for Modelling and Automation in ArcGIS Pro & ArcGIS are also worth considering that includes ArcGIS Python Libraries to facilitate the users.

Now users can create Dynamic and Data-driven maps in a browser with the latest features like Map Viewer, Dot density, Layer Blending, Dynamic clustering of ArcGIS. Map creation is no more boring now with interesting tools such as Map Graphics, Color Management, and Chart Symbols. The researchers get a clearer topographic or aeronautical map with Automated Map and Chart Production ability of ArcGIS Pro that makes workflow management & quality control less time-consuming.

Location, a crucial term now, is reachable with interactive visual analysis using GIS. Here, ArcGIS offers many presentable options for analysis. The advanced analysis and sharing of interactive reports help professionals communicate at any corner. 

Features like Time-Series forecasting, Suitability Modeler, Built-in Scheduling and COVID-19 Toolbox have revolutionized the ways for spatial analysis. More than 200 new tools & algorithms are now available for GIS enthusiasts. 

AI, Machine Learning and Deep Learning in ArcGIS

Be it ArcGIS Pro, Enterprise or Online, automating processes have made GIS smarter with time. Integration of AI, ML, and DL has made GIS easy to use. Spatio-temporal machine learning, Deep learning in various data types, and pre-trained models help maintain Open Source Data science ecosystem. Users can do classification, training datasets, object detection, or change detection easily and accurately because of these technologies. These ready to use workflows and content are crucial at the time of disasters. 

There are hundreds of innovations and workflows like Drone Integration, multidimensional tools, and deep learning tools that have made ArcGIS stronger with time, and many are yet to come.
