ArcGIS Maps for Office 4.0 release is now available. This release offers significant updates and enhancements. Here are some highlights.
ArcGIS Maps for Office 4.0 includes the following new features:
Whether you’re an expert at working with maps or just getting started, it’s never been easier to create visually stunning maps that tell the stories you want to tell. ArcGIS Maps for Office analyzes the data in your spreadsheet and suggests the best ways to represent it on a map, offering a selection of styles for you to choose from. Choose a style and instantly create a map, or customize the styling options to suit your story. Smart mapping also provides the much-requested ability to manually set class breaks for your layers.
If your data contains temporal values, you can add time-aware layers to a map in Excel and run an animation that shows how patterns in the data change over time. This feature also supports time-enabled layers on the ArcGIS platform, allowing you to compare time-based patterns in your data with similar patterns from within your organization or from authoritative sources such as the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
ArcGIS Maps for Office provides a fully updated experience for enhancing your PowerPoint presentations with interactive, dynamic maps by making it simpler and quicker to search for content. Add maps directly to PowerPoint using content from your ArcGIS organization, or edit existing map slides. Insert the map into a slide and position it as desired—on its own or combined with other standard PowerPoint features such as charts, images, and text. In Slide Show mode, you can zoom and pan across the map and select features to display detailed information, allowing you to quickly answer questions that come up during your presentation.
You’ve been able to filter spreadsheets by cell value for a long time. Now, ArcGIS Maps for Office lets you filter your spreadsheet by selecting items on the map, allowing you to focus directly on the features you’re working with right now. Filter the spreadsheet to display only selected features, then use standard Excel functions to work with the data that you need.
Static layers added from ArcGIS help you visualize immobile objects such as buildings, roads, or boundaries. Now, ArcGIS Maps for Office lets you keep track of things that move, change, or evolve—like storms, vehicles, or field work status. The Refresh Interval feature lets you specify how often a layer is polled for updates; or click a button to update the layer immediately
ArcGIS Maps for Office is deployed as an add-on to Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint. For ArcGIS Maps for Office to operate properly, Esri assumes an operation configuration of these applications. Esri tests ArcGIS Maps for Office only in software environments certified as supported by Microsoft Excel or PowerPoint; not all Excel or PowerPoint-supported environments have been tested or certified. For more information, see the Esri supported environment policy.
Note: Microsoft Word allows you to embed and work with an Excel spreadsheet in a document. This workflow is unsupported by ArcGIS Maps for Office and is not recommended.
