Next Level Analysis with ArcGIS


Sharing is Caring

REDLANDS, Calif.—February 3, 2020—Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, has released the latest version of ArcGIS Image Analyst. This ArcGIS Pro extension enables users to derive and extract actionable information from imagery using new capabilities in deep learning and multidimensional image processing and analysis.

Multidimensional data can represent geophysical, environmental, climatological, or atmospheric phenomena that occur within space, time, and depth. ArcGIS Image Analyst’s new user experience provides an easier way for users to slice through different data dimensions and variables, making analysis or visualization of patterns and anomalies simpler and more intuitive.

Deep learning is a machine learning method included in ArcGIS Image Analyst that uses neural networks to develop modeling systems. Enhanced features of these  tools give users the ability to complete complex image identification tasks, including:

·        Object detection (detecting cars, planes and other features)

·        Instance segmentation (deriving precise polygonal boundaries of objects like buildings)

·        object classification (identifying whether a house is damaged or not)

·        Pixel classification (performing landcover classification)

Developers can also access a rich set of APIs to build web applications for visualization or analysis against multidimensional image services.

These new capabilities are part of the ArcGIS platform, which allows users to efficiently manage, visualize, and analyze multidimensional data with a suite of tools, including deep learning, for desktop and enterprise implementations.
