ArcGIS GeoAnalytics Server introduces distributed computing to vector-based feature data and can be used to analyze big data or accelerate traditional ArcGIS Desktop analysis workflows through ArcGIS Pro and Portal for ArcGIS. The GeoAnalytics Server capability can also be used from within the Insights for ArcGIS app.
Perform big data analysis with ArcGIS GeoAnalytics Server
In version 10.5 and later, you can perform feature analysis using distributed computing with the tools provided by ArcGIS GeoAnalytics Server. These tools can analyze patterns and aggregate data in the context of both space and time as well as help you answer questions such as the following:
- Using millions of emergency calls accumulated over decades, which areas had the highest rates of emergency calls?
- What are the most popular locations for taxi pickups in New York City, and how is this trend changing weekly?
- What is the flight path of recorded GPS tracks, and how many of those paths occurred within 100 km of a no-fly zone in 2015?
ArcGIS GeoAnalytics Server enables distributed analysis across multiple ArcGIS Server machines. By harnessing the compute power of multiple machines, your analysis can be performed more quickly and with larger quantities of data than could previously be computed on a single machine.
To use ArcGIS GeoAnalytics Server, you must have Portal for ArcGIS in your deployment. For details on how to set up your deployment to enable GeoAnalytics Server, see Set up ArcGIS GeoAnalytics Server.
