ArcGIS GeoPlanner tutorials
The following table contains a list of ArcGIS GeoPlanner tutorials that guide you through the app step by step. If you have an ArcGIS organizational account and access to ArcGIS GeoPlanner, you can work through these tutorials at your convenience.
Getting Started with GeoPlanner
This tutorial details how to access the ArcGIS GeoPlanner app and create a new project and guides you through a tour of the user interface.
Working with Data and Creating Assessment Layers
In this tutorial, you browse and discover data hosted on ArcGIS.com that can be used in this exercise. You also analyze the suitability of sites targeted for the redevelopment effort described in these tutorials.
Creating a New Scenario and Creating Features
A scenario represents a unique design alternative within a plan. This tutorial teaches you how to create a new scenario and add features to it.
Comparing and Evaluating Alternatives
A GeoPlanner project represents plans with multiple design alternatives. In this tutorial, you evaluate your scenarios by examining the spatial and quantitative relationships between your design alternatives. You also perform a visual and quantitative comparison between two scenarios.
Use the Report segment to present and share your analysis
This exercise teaches you how to build and share a presentation in ArcGIS for Office and Esri Story Maps using your GeoPlanner analysis.
Create a template using GeoPlanner
All GeoPlanner projects start from templates. Templates contain feature layers and symbol sets specific to industries and standards. These symbol sets are used when creating features within a scenario. In this tutorial, you learn how to create, publish, and share your own GeoPlanner template.
Define a project boundary using your file-based data
Planning activities frequently use a boundary to delineate a study area. GeoPlanner projects may require you to upload, share, and publish custom data that cannot be discovered on ArcGIS.com. This tutorial teaches you how to upload your own boundary data, create a feature layer, and share it with your GeoPlanner project.
