Enrich Data

Note:

Enrich Data is not available in the Insights Local beta.

Enrich Data uses the Esri GeoEnrichment service to give you demographic and landscape data for the people, places, and businesses associated with your point, line, or area data locations.

Examples

An analyst has crime counts for hexagon grid cells overlaying her city. To create a crime rate, she uses Enrich Data to obtain the number of people living within each hexagon.

Library staff want to ensure program offerings at each library branch effectively serve local communities. By using Enrich Data to gather information about the people living in neighborhoods surrounding each library, they get a clear picture of who the potential branch patrons are. This allows them to more effectively design their program offerings to match local community needs.

Usage notes

Use the Choose layer to enrich parameter to add data to a selected layer from the map. The data can be point, line, or area features.

The Select lifestyle and demographic data parameter includes a button to open the data browser. In the data browser, you can select the country where your data is located as well as one or more variables from categories such as Population, Education, and Spending. For information about supported countries, see the Esri Demographics help.

If your input features are points or lines, a third parameter, Set distance value to expand search area, will be available. A search distance in meters, kilometers, feet, or miles must be entered to run Enrich Data for points and lines. The distance units will be based on the default units for your account.

Enrich Data uses the ArcGIS Online GeoEnrichment service. Running Enrich Data will use credits from your ArcGIS Online organization.

Limitations

For Insights Enterprise users, your portal must be configured with the GeoEnrichment utility service for Enrich Data to be available in Insights.

You must have GeoEnrichment privilege to use Enrich Data. GeoEnrichment is included in the Publisher and Administrator roles.

Enrich Data doesn't work when Portal for ArcGIS is installed on Windows, and configured with Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) authentication. This is an issue for environments that deploy the portal in disconnected mode.
