As the saying goes – a picture says a thousand words
Because of the way the human brain works, it’s much easier for people to understand data represented in a chart or on a graph rather than hidden away in spreadsheets or reports. Data visualisation is key to making data analytics approachable and conveying analysis results effectively.
In its raw form, data can be essentially meaningless. Without the ability to compare and contrast, highlight trends and predict outcomes, the value of data remains trapped. By taking raw datasets and representing them in a visual format, analysts can unlock a wealth of insights and gain a greater understanding of any situation.
Combining the latest visualisation technologies with the huge amounts of data available from companies like HERE – a leader in mapping, navigation and location experiences – allows you to present your data on striking, interactive maps that are not only informative, but also highly engaging.
This year’s Australian Esri User Conference – Ozri 2015 was another huge success. We are proud to be part of such an outstanding event which brings together mapping and spatial professionals from all over the country. We hope you enjoyed the 3-day action-packed program as much as we did.
Committed to powering your next big idea with premium content we took advantage of the conference to launch exciting new applications and deliver helpful demonstrations.
But if you’ve missed out on Ozri 2015 – don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Find a summary of the best bits below.
After previously talking about our place/suggest service and what it can do, we received requests to actually see something in action. What better way to understand! So we’ve put this demo together for you.
There are some really cool and easy visualisations you can do with different online mapping platforms now available.
ArcGIS Online Smart Mapping
ArcGIS Online has recently included new functionality to easily create an interesting visualisation from your data. The new Smart Mapping option helps you to figure out the best way to display your data, taking into consideration what your data ranges are and the type of data that is in your table.
