Develop three engaging ArcGIS applications to address your real-world mapping scenarios About This Book Design, build and run ArcGIS applications using ArcObjects SDK Extend ArcGIS objects and use add -ins to deploy applications on top of ArcGIS An example-centric practical guide to help you understand mapping scenarios with ArcGIS Who This Book Is For If you are an application developer and wish to enhance your skills for the GIS domain with ArcGIS, then this book is for you. Previous experience with ArcGIS is not required. What You Will Learn Use essential ArcGIS code to query geodatabases Communicate with ArcGIS maps, with the help of critical designing and optimisation tips Highlight and interact with objects on your map Query ArcGIS geodatabases with related data to display your information on ArcGIS Edit your underlying geodatabase Explore strategies for the adaptation of various types of spatial analysis techniques into the GIS framework Analyze tools for Geographical Information Systems and remote sensing Experience ArcGIS's advanced tools for manipulation of shapefiles and geodatabases In Detail ArcGIS is a geographic information system (GIS) for working with maps and geographic information. It is considered the turnkey solution to creating and sharing interactive maps. ArcGIS is designed to work the way you work. With nothing to install and set up, ArcGIS helps you make your work productive from day one. The book covers the design and development of three ArcGIS applications to guide the readers in crafting their own GIS solution as per their requirements. The book begins by giving you a refresher on the concepts of ArcGIS. Without wasting any time, you'll begin with developing your first ArcGIS application. You will be developing a cell tower analysis tool. Following this, you will be guided through mapping signal strength and real - time manoeuvring in your GIS system. You will then move on to the second application of the book: a restaurant mapping system. The application will allow tourists to browse restaurants on a map, according to their preferences. Next, you will learn how to work with reviews and ratings and also cover some of the advanced searching options offered by ArcGIS. You will then make use of advanced ArcObjects to develop your third application: an excavation planning manager. The book will conclude by teaching you how work out excavation cost calculations and also saving and retrieving your excavation designs. Style and approach The book offers an enhanced way of learning ArcGIS, through the design and development of three applications throughout its length. In addition to this the book also covers features that you can add to your application as you develop each one covered in the book.

If you are a GIS student or professional who needs an understanding of how to use ArcPy to reduce repetitive tasks and perform analysis faster, this book is for you. It is also a valuable book for Python programmers who want to understand how to automate geospatial analyses.
Creating and Sharing Maps and Data using ArcGIS Pro Key Features Leverage the power of ArcGIS to build beautiful 2D and 3D maps. Work with ArcGIS to analyze and process data. Extend the power of ArcGIS to ArcGIS Online to create and edit content. Book Description ArcGIS is Esri's catalog of GIS applications with powerful tools for visualizing, maintaining, and analyzing data. ArcGIS makes use of the modern ribbon interface and 64-bit processing to increase the speed and efficiency of using GIS. It allows users to create amazing maps in both 2D and 3D quickly and easily. If you want to gain a thorough understanding of the various data formats that can be used in ArcGIS Pro and shared via ArcGIS Online, then this book is for you. Beginning with a refresher on ArcGIS Pro and how to work with projects, this book will quickly take you through recipes about using various data formats supported by the tool. You will learn the limits of each format, such as Shapefiles, Geodatabase, and CAD files, and learn how to link tables from outside sources to existing GIS data to expand the amount of data that can be used in ArcGIS. You'll learn methods for editing 2D and 3D data using ArcGIS Pro and how topology can be used to ensure data integrity. Lastly the book will show you how data and maps can be shared via ArcGIS Online and used with web and mobile applications. What you will learn Edit data using standard tools and topology Convert and link data together using joins and relates Create and share data using Projections and Coordinate Systems Access and collect data in the field using ArcGIS Collector Perform proximity analysis and map clusters with hotspot analysis Use the 3D Analyst Extension and perform advanced 3D analysis Share maps and data using ArcGIS Online via web and mobile apps Who this book is for GIS developers who are comfortable using ArcGIS, and are looking to increase their capabilities and skills, will find this book useful.
Explore GIS processing and learn to work with various tools and libraries in Python. Key Features Analyze and process geospatial data using Python libraries such as; Anaconda, GeoPandas Leverage new ArcGIS API to process geospatial data for the cloud. Explore various Python geospatial web and machine learning frameworks. Book Description Python comes with a host of open source libraries and tools that help you work on professional geoprocessing tasks without investing in expensive tools. This book will introduce Python developers, both new and experienced, to a variety of new code libraries that have been developed to perform geospatial analysis, statistical analysis, and data management. This book will use examples and code snippets that will help explain how Python 3 differs from Python 2, and how these new code libraries can be used to solve age-old problems in geospatial analysis. You will begin by understanding what geoprocessing is and explore the tools and libraries that Python 3 offers. You will then learn to use Python code libraries to read and write geospatial data. You will then learn to perform geospatial queries within databases and learn PyQGIS to automate analysis within the QGIS mapping suite. Moving forward, you will explore the newly released ArcGIS API for Python and ArcGIS Online to perform geospatial analysis and create ArcGIS Online web maps. Further, you will deep dive into Python Geospatial web frameworks and learn to create a geospatial REST API. What you will learn Manage code libraries and abstract geospatial analysis techniques using Python 3. Explore popular code libraries that perform specific tasks for geospatial analysis. Utilize code libraries for data conversion, data management, web maps, and REST API creation. Learn techniques related to processing geospatial data in the cloud. Leverage features of Python 3 with geospatial databases such as PostGIS, SQL Server, and SpatiaLite. Who this book is for The audience for this book includes students, developers, and geospatial professionals who need a reference book that covers GIS data management, analysis, and automation techniques with code libraries built in Python 3.
