ArcGIS Dashboards is an app builder product that creates configurable dashboards to visualize data, communicate information, and analyze real-time data in a single screen. It integrates with ArcGIS and allows you to create dashboards using visual elements to gain insights and communicate information effectively. Dashboards can easily be shared and accessed, making it a powerful tool for collaboration and decision making.
Dashboards offer a collection of visual elements that help you design and present your data in a meaningful way. Here are some common dashboard elements in ArcGIS Dashboards:
Map: Allows you to display data and visualize it in your web application. This element is generally connected to a web map that contains layers and customized symbology.
Serial chart: Enables you to create various types of charts such as bar or line charts. It helps you represent numerical data in a visual form.
Indicator: Displays values or a key performance indicator (KPI). Use this element to show metrics like counts, sums, averages, percentages, and other statistical values.
The key features include the following:
Interactive interfaces: The builder interfaces are designed to be user-friendly and accessible for all levels of developers. They provide a drag-and-drop interface that simplifies the process of creating custom applications.
Pre-built components: All of the builders provide pre-built components and templates that you can start from instead of writing code from scratch.
Configurable: Each builder provides a range of configurable options, allowing you to create an application that meets your specific requirements. You can customize everything from the interface to the functionality.
Integration with ArcGIS: The builders integrate seamlessly with ArcGIS products and technologies, allowing you to take advantage of a range of pre-existing tools, content, and data.
Web hosting: All web applications created by the builders are hosted and managed in ArcGIS.
Security and sharing: All web applications created by the builders support security and can be shared with a group, shared publicly, or not shared.
Some of the additional benefits are:
Data visualization: Create visualizations of data that can easily be understood by your users. This makes it easy to communicate data and insights to your stakeholders and customers.
Real-time data: Display and monitor real-time data which allows you to monitor and react to changing conditions quickly.
ArcGIS Dashboards gives you the ability to create and share interactive data visualizations for real-time insights and analysis. You can use various data sources to create maps, charts, and other visualizations in your dashboard. Dashboards also display data in a user-friendly web interface, providing a comprehensive view for your stakeholders.
