What's new

The latest release includes the following enhancements:

Improved Infographics with new starter templates

Use seven new starter infographic templates to summarize data and analysis—for example: Office Market Profile, Employment Overview. These can be found under the Esri Templates tab, in addition to the starter templates already available for you to use directly or customize to better fit your needs.

Migration to new Comparison Reports workflow

The old Comparison Reports workflow has been removed with this release, but its replacement, the new Comparison Reports workflow, has already been available in the application for some time. The new workflow includes the old Comparison Report features, and some additional features. Learn more about how to migrate to the new Comparison Reports.

This release also includes some improvements to charts, benchmark tables, and other features in the new Comparison Reports workflow.

Access crime data for reporting

Use the new Esri Crime Summary report to understand crime statistics for seven major categories of personal and property crime. You will be able to use the crime data in custom reports, infographics, and comparison reports to classify crimes by local demographics and type of incident.

Add Nearby Location Counts and Summaries

Summarize attribute values when using the Nearby infographic elements. When running infographics with a Nearby table, you can choose the attributes that you want to summarize, and see the results added at the bottom of the table. Optionally, you will be able to choose to display the Nearby table as a summary count in its own panel.

Additional Symbology for Mapping

Hundreds of new map markers are now available to symbolize locations. You can start with vector graphics and color them to better customize how you symbolize locations on the map.

Combine Dot Density Visualization with Color-Coded Maps

Use the new Dot Density with Color Coded Map style to display a dot density map with a color-coded background. You can view one variable represented by dot density in the foreground and a second variable with a color ramp background map. For example, show total population using dot density mapping shaded by a color-coded background map of median household income.

Use Top Consumer Segments for Canada

Determine top 3 consumer segments for any area in Canada using the PRIZM5 segmentation data. Add the PRIZM5 segments panel in your infographics and run it for any area.

Use Web Layers Directly in Reporting Workflows

Add location layers from ArcGIS run reports and analysis without having to convert them into sites. With the new Setup layer option, you can use services already published in ArcGIS in Suitability Analysis, Infographics and reports without the need to duplicate locations. The Setup layer feature also allows pre-filtering by attribute and by map extent. To learn more, see Setup Layer under Layer Options.
