Introduction to Multi Source Data Feeds

Multi Source Data Feeds can be used to visualize global incidents in ArcGIS.

Businesses need access to critical information with confidence, which enables organizational response to incidents at different levels and across different business units. This is needed to allow organizations to see beyond the horizon and react to real-time incidents across the globe. 24/7 access to incident data is at the cornerstone of this need. Multi Source Data Feeds is typically implemented by organizations that rely on event feeds to understand incidents across the globe.

The Multi Source Data Feeds solution delivers a set of capabilities that provides awareness in near real time to incidents around the globe. This access is enabled by Esri business partners that curate event information into one location and allow consumption via the business partner API's.
