Autodesk University is getting close and we are looking forward to it! While we are there, Stephen Brockwell will be presenting two sessions this year and Brockwell will also be in the Exhibit Hall. In the weeks leading up to AU 2017, we will be providing some information about the presentations Stephen is giving and some of the other classes and exhibits we are looking forward to seeing.
On the third day of the conference, our session is in the morning and titled “Data Aggregation with InfraWorks and ArcGIS for Visualization, Analysis, and Planning.” In this session, we will be discussing some of our latest work on integrations, specifically focusing on the integration with ArcGIS.
In many industries, we talk about “Silos of data” or data that tends to get locked up in a separate database or set of data files that are not part of an organization’s enterprise-wide data administration. You would think that with the invent of “the cloud” or the increase in database capacity that silos of data should be history. But integrating geographic information system (GIS) with 3D model-based design can be a real challenge, especially for organizations that are large and where enterprise databases take significant effort to update and maintain.
However, the ability to aggregate data and visualize multiple sources of information is crucial for decision making, especially within municipal organizations who have several layers of data to consider. But let us present you with an advantage – with ArcGIS Online and InfraWorks software, you will have the edge: the cloud-based ability to easily aggregate personal, organizational, and public data previously locked in GIS files or servers. For urban development, environmental planning, or capital projects, this capacity can enhance the value of your GIS data to create rich 3D design models for critical infrastructure projects.
In this session, we will demonstrate the use of InfraWorks software to aggregate ArcGIS Online. You will learn how to configure local GIS servers for ArcGIS Online access. We’ll also show you how to configure ArcGIS orthophoto and terrain services for use in InfraWorks. Finally, we’ll demonstrate the process using a specific road-design example from a large North American city.
• Learn how to aggregate public, personal, and organizational GIS data from ArcGIS Online within InfraWorks
• Learn how to save mappings for ArcGIS attributes to your InfraWorks model
• Learn how to link ArcGIS services you have published to ArcGIS Online and access them from InfraWorks
• See a comprehensive workflow for visualizing a transportation plan for a major North American city
