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.

No knowledge of R is assumed. What You Will Learn Get to know how to measure geographic distributions Perform clustering analysis including hot spot and outlier analysis Conduct data conversion tasks using the Utilities toolset Understand how to use the tools provided by the Mapping Clusters toolset in the Spatial Statistics Toolbox Get to grips with the basics of R for performing spatial statistical programming Create custom ArcGIS tools with R and ArcGIS Bridge Understand the application of Spatial Statistics tools and the R programming language through case studies In Detail Spatial statistics has the potential to provide insight that is not otherwise available through traditional GIS tools. This book is designed to introduce you to the use of spatial statistics so you can solve complex geographic analysis. The book begins by introducing you to the many spatial statistics tools available in ArcGIS. You will learn how to analyze patterns, map clusters, and model spatial relationships with these tools. Further on, you will explore how to extend the spatial statistics tools currently available in ArcGIS, and use the R programming language to create custom tools in ArcGIS through the ArcGIS Bridge using real-world examples. At the end of the book, you will be presented with two exciting case studies where you will be able to practically apply all your learning to analyze and gain insights into real estate data. Style and approach Filled with live examples that you can code along with, this book will show you different methods and techniques to effectively analyze spatial data with ArcGIS and the R language. The exciting case studies at the end will help you immediately put your learning to practice.
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.

Learn how to build native, cross-platform mapping apps with this comprehensive and practical guide, using the MVVM pattern About This Book Enhance the user experience with the power of ArcGIS runtime SDK for .NET. This clear, well segregated book has all the information you need on ArcGIS Runtime SDK. Just name it—this book has it! This highly practical book empowers you to build your own custom application! Get to know the inner details of ArcGIS Runtime SDK from our experts, in this book written by Ron Vincent, with 24 years' experience in the GIS industry and many in GIS training. Who This Book Is For This book caters to long-term users of Esri's technologies that are new to mobile development or are transitioning from older Esri technologies such as ArcGIS Engine. It is also for users who are unfamiliar with Esri or GIS and are in need of a mapping solution for either their desktop or a mobile platform, or both. The book requires knowledge of .NET. What You Will Learn Understand and implement the MVVM pattern using MVVM Light Create and add layers from offline and online resources such as ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS for Server Create a 2D or 3D map and decide what kind of symbology to use Symbolize the layers based on the geometry Search and find objects in the layers Geocode an address and create a route using an address Edit layer objects from online content and offline content Test the application using test-driven development and then build and release the application for the intended audience In Detail ArcGIS is a geographic information system (GIS) that enables you to work with maps and geographic information. It can be used to create and utilize maps, compile geographic data, analyze mapped information, share and discover geographic information and manage geographic information in a database. This book starts by showing you where ArcGIS Runtime fits within Esri's overall platform strategy. You'll create an initial map using the SDK, then use it to get an understanding of the MVVM model. You'll find out about the different kinds of layers and start adding layers, and you'll learn to transform maps into a 3D scene. The next chapters will help you comprehend and extract information contained in the maps using co-ordinates and layer objects. Towards the end, you will learn to set the symbology, decide whether to use 2D or 3D, see how to implement 2D or 3D, and learn to search and find objects. You'll also get to grips with many other standard features of the Application Programming Interface (API), including create applications and finally testing, licensing, and deploying them. Once completed, you will be able to meet most of the common requirements of any mapping application for desktop or mobile platforms. Style and approach This comprehensive book takes a completely practical approach, where every chapter explains the important concepts and demonstrates a practical application of them in a hands-on manner.
