Reports

ArcGIS GeoPlanner can help you inventory the types of natural assets in an area and catalog how the features in your plan summarize models and assessment layers.

Indicator report

An indicator report in GeoPlanner is similar to the Scenario Comparison table in that it shows a summary of dashboard indicators from one or more scenarios. The indicator report only reports on the chart indicators in your project. It displays the distribution of design types in a dashboard chart indicator and how each design type summarizes a model or assessment layer. Design types correspond to the primary chart indicator, while models or assessment layers resolve in the secondary chart indicator. You can also report on how each individual feature summarizes a model. This gives you potential suitability scores per feature. The following table illustrates the output from this report when reporting by feature type:

Use this report to understand the impact of all types or all features against a model or assessment layer. This report helps you understand suitability scores for each type or each feature in a type.

Complete the following steps to generate an indicator report:

  1. In GeoPlanner, create a suitability model using the Modeler or the Classify tool.
  2. Click the Dashboard button Dashboard on the map and configure the following:
    1. Configure the primary chart indicator to report on your scenario features.
    2. Configure the secondary chart indicator to report on the model you created in the previous step.
  3. Click the Evaluate tab.
  4. Click the Report drop-down arrow and choose Indicator Report.
  5. Click the Report drop-down arrow and check one or more of the Chart Indicator check boxes.
    • Scenario and Baseline Indicator—Show information about the indicator values from your scenario in a report.
    • Chart Indicator (Per Type)—Show information about the charts from your scenarios sorted by type in a report.
    • Chart Indicator (Per Feature)—Show information about the charts from your scenarios sorted by feature in a report.
  6. Click the Scenario drop-down arrow and choose the scenarios for which you want a report.
  7. Click the Indicator drop-down arrow and choose the indicators that you want to use to generate a report.
  8. Optionally, check the Hide evaluation details check box to remove the score values from a Chart Indicator report.
  9. Click Run.

    The tool runs and generates a compressed folder containing the reports you chose. The format of each report is a .csv file. You can open these reports in a spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel.

Baseline report

The Baseline report is an inventory of natural assets in an area. The report uses the Enrich Layer tool and ArcGIS Living Atlas content to generate information on landscape and natural assets within a study area, state, county, or hydrologic unit (HUC). Use this report for environmental screening. It can help you understand what's in an area before you begin to change it. You can also download the report in an XLSX or PDF format.

Landscape Summary Report

Currently, the Baseline report is limited to a landscape summary of areas within the United States.

Note:

Running a Baseline report consumes credits.

The following steps detail how to generate a Baseline report:

  1. In GeoPlanner, click the Evaluate tab.
  2. Click the Report drop-down arrow and choose Baseline Report.

    The Baseline Report pane appears.

  3. Click the Report drop-down arrow and specify a value.
  4. Click the Geography drop-down arrow and choose one of the following:
    • Study Area—Allows you to report on landscape assets in a planning subarea.
      Note:

      You can create a study area by clicking the Add Study Area button in the Contents pane.

    • US State—Allows you to report on landscape assets within a state.
    • US County—Allows you to report on landscape assets within a county.
    • US HUC—Allows you to report on landscape assets within a hydrologic unit in the United States.
  5. Click the Format drop-down arrow and choose PDF or XLSX.
  6. Click Run.

    The tool runs and generates a file in the format you specified. Choose whether to open the file or save it.
