ArcGis Pro 1.0 Tutorial English: 2- the Project ArcGIS Pro PROJECTS

The ArcGIS Pro application lets you gather all the resources you need to complete a project in one place. A project contains maps, layouts, server tasks and connections, databases, toolboxes, folders, styles, and so on. It can also integrate content from your portal or ArcGIS Online of your organization.

Projects can be created on your local file system and shared online as a   project package. These Online Projects can be downloaded to your local station. Continue reading “ArcGis Pro 1.0 Tutorial English: 2- the Project ArcGIS Pro PROJECTS”

ArcGis Pro 1.0 Tutorial English: 1- Interface Discovery

We will begin a series of tutorials for the new application available with ArcGis 10.3, ArcGis Pro.

This first chapter is dedicated to the discovery of the interface.

What’s up?Ribbon!

 

ArcGIS Pro uses a rectangular ribbon at the top of the application to display and organize its features in a series of tabs. The ribbon only shows the tools that are relevant to the current task. Rather than taking up space on the screen to display a series of toolbars-some of which you cannot even use-the ribbon is contextual and updates to reflect current work opportunities. In this way, ArcGIS Pro can provide a large number of features in a simple way, without overwhelming you. When you have an open map, you simply see the commands that work with maps. The ribbon tabs appear as you need them, such as the specific tools for the raster layers that appear when you work with this kind of data.

Terrain Tools for ArcGis 10.3 and ArcGis Pro

Standard techniques for representing the terrain, such as shading, are sufficient for many applications, but with Terrain Tools you can represent the terrain under different lighting conditions, or use more artistic techniques. This set of tools complete or extend what you find in the default software. These techniques are often difficult to find or to put into work. The Terrain Tools project brings together some of these ideas in a toolkit which provides the features to create alternative representations of the terrain with ArcGIS.

The Terrain Tools are included in a toolbox to be used either with ArcGIS Desktop 10.3 or ArcGIS Pro 1.0. Continue reading “Terrain Tools for ArcGis 10.3 and ArcGis Pro”

How to track changes in a geodatabase under ArcGis

From the moment you are not any longer alone to manage data, it is important to be able to track data changes: who did what and when?

If you work with geodatabases enterprise you know that you have at your disposal the versioning as well as archiving options to perform this task , provided you count with a Standard or Advanced license .

We will address the available tool with ArcGis 10.2 and above in Basic version to perform this task in personal geodatabases and file: tracking publisher. Continue reading “How to track changes in a geodatabase under ArcGis”

The new field calculator in ArcGis Pro

 One of the most common tools for data management is the famous ArcGIS Field Calculator.   When you are on a tabular view, by right- clicking on the field name (column), you find the option “Field Calculator” which opens the famous calculator: Continue reading “The new field calculator in ArcGis Pro”

Arcmap: A Python script to geocode addresses with OpenStreetMap

 

At a time when QGis allows a free, unlimited and easy-to-use addresses geocoding (see the article Geocodages of addresses with QGis 2.8 ), the geocoding with ArcGis gets caught up in credits, API keys and others artifices to charge and complicate to obtain  the same result. Fortunately some doors cannot be locked and there are still ways to do it without necessarily passing by the checkout. Here is a small Python script that allows you to geocode an address file with OpenStreetMap from ArcMap. Continue reading “Arcmap: A Python script to geocode addresses with OpenStreetMap”

Geotag and import photos replace photo2shape in QGis

 

This article is an update of a previous one, “Integrate geolocated photos in QGis with Photo2shape”   . In fact, the photo2shape plugin is no longer maintained and poses a lot of problems. We will perform the same operations with the new plugin   “Geotag and import photos”.

In this article we will discuss how to create a layer of points in QGis including positions and links to “geotagged” photos. Therefore, we will use the QGis Photo2Shape plugin. Continue reading “Geotag and import photos replace photo2shape in QGis”

How to install Python add- ons for ArcGis and QGis

For those who are not familiar with the oddities related to the use of Python add- ons , the almost unavoidable pitfall   installation of the module.

You will find yourself with a .tar.gz file and then … not the least info about what to do with it.

Here’s how to proceed. It’s not long, but I hope this is crystal-clear. Continue reading “How to install Python add- ons for ArcGis and QGis”

Python Methods for QGis: how to examine vector data

Once a layer is loaded, usually we want to access the data included in the layer, whether the geometries or the attributes. Now, we will discuss how to code in Python the access to these two types of data. Continue reading “Python Methods for QGis: how to examine vector data”

Python Methods for QGis: How to access vector data (postgis, spatiality)

In this series of articles we discuss how to access vector type data in Python and QGis. In the previous article ( Python Recipes for QGis: access data vector (shapefile) ) we have discussed  how to load a shapefile file . In this article we ‘ll see how to load a Postgresql / Postgis table and a Spatialite table . Continue reading “Python Methods for QGis: How to access vector data (postgis, spatiality)”
