Data visualization is a modern form of communications that involves the study and creation of visual representations of large data streams often known as big data. Visualizing data is a powerful tool across many industries and disciplines and is often done with tools like ArcGIS, capable of turning almost any form of data into a geographical point ready to be mapped. If you have yet to unlock the power of big data in your company or organization and leverage it through maps and other means of data visualization, it’s time to get caught up with the technology quickly becoming taken for granted in various fields. It is being used in various administrative settings around the world from city planning to shipping and logistics and even marketing and sales.

Wait, there’s a difference between Loading and Appending data?

Posted by Emma Paz on Jun 8, 2015 11:27:54 AM

Recently, Jay came across what seemed likely to be a data-type discrepancy between an SDE Spatial View (SV) in SQL and its associated Feature Class (FC); the discrepancy was leading to a handful of unpopulated text fields (varchars and nvarchars).

Posted by Jay Fowler on Dec 29, 2014 3:39:30 PM

The ArcGIS© for Server REST API provides robust tools for working with spatial data. Did you know that you can also use the REST API to do many of the same powerful operations to tables published through a feature service? ArcGIS© for Server allows you to query, edit, add, update, and delete data from a table without having to directly contact a SQL Server, or build a complex and time consuming web service. However, registering a table with the geodatabase can introduce problems.
