Exploring advanced workflows for BIM / GIS integration
Szu Nyiap Tang and Katleya Rae Dela Cruz, Esri Singapore

In the age of smart cities and smart communities, BIM-GIS integration is enabling professionals in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industries to seamlessly go through the Plan-Design-Build-Manage workflow. It also allows for an intelligent approach in dealing with the digital collaboration of rich metadata and digital illustrations throughout the project lifecycle. Solution specialists, Szu Nyiap Tang and Katleya Rae Dela Cruz will take a comprehensive look at the general integration workflow and provide advanced tips in this session.

Best practice tips for boosting your data interoperability
Plintolincon Jena, Esri Singapore

Starting smart initiatives requires transformation of your data — which comes in all sorts of formats — into a single standard. It also requires the elimination of boundaries between your systems to allow collaboration across departments. The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension allows users to do just that; Integrated within ArcGIS, users are able to make use of the spatial ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) toolsets powered by Safe Software’s FME Technology to integrate different data sources into a single workflow and consume the output in ArcGIS Enterprise. In this session, Esri Singapore Solution Analyst, Plintolincon Jena, will introduce data transformation and standardisation best practices as well as how to create geospatial workflows.

Gaining clearer insights from your market intelligence using ArcGIS Business Analyst
Vergil Yu and Yongxian Lam, Esri Singapore

The Business Analyst web app allows businesses looking to explore new site locations or identify their target customers, to leverage demographic data and spending patterns available in the embedded Esri Living Atlas. Smart mapping techniques and location analytics supported informed decision-making, with built-in report templates making it easy to showcase these results. Join Vergil Yu and Yongxian Lam as they go behind the scenes of the Business Analyst web application and demonstrate how it helps users find answers to their location- based questions.

Connecting and mobilising your workforce – exploring Esri’s symphony of apps
Merpati Chandrasari (Andra) and Marcus Chui, Esri Singapore

Field and mobile processes are key components in an organisation’s development. It verifies, qualifies, and keeps the information abreast and relevant to the company’s workflows and operations. ArcGIS has provided a strong platform that supports the field and mobile operations of organisations across all industries through the years.

Expect to see new tips for both established field apps such as Collector (Aurora) as well as new ones that can be easily incorporated to boost field operation workflows.

Exploring interactive mapping options with Jupyter Notebook
Sharon Gin, Esri Singapore

Jupyter Notebooks allows you to code in small sections, with each section providing its own feedback while still being connected to all other sections. With Jupyter Notebooks, you can quickly create prototypes and experiment with geospatial workflows in ArcGIS. Moreover, the integration of the Jupyter Notebooks with ArcGIS Pro has allowed users to benefit from this ease of functionality together with the ArcPy module. Join Sharon Gin as she introduced Jupyter Notebooks in ArcGIS Pro and shares tips on how to effectively use it for a more interactive mapping experience.

ArcGIS API for JavaScript provides tools for developers to visualise data in 2D and 3D, build custom applications and gain insights with location intelligence. Find out how to build engaging and powerful web apps with ArcGIS API for JavaScript with Nivesh Thekkarath Smitha and Shawn Ng. You will also learn best practices for ensuring a good user experience across multiple devices and how to optimise your apps for performance.

ArcGIS Enterprise: Tips for advanced administration
Karen Garcia, Esri Singapore

ArcGIS Enterprise administrators require effective monitoring solutions to meet the growing demand for feature-rich, highly available and performing ArcGIS solutions. When it comes to collaboration, ArcGIS Enterprise has always been in the centre of numerous organisation’s geospatial data systems. Allowing user groups to interact within the organisations and with external communities, this platform provides a stable and secure foundation whether it resides behind your firewall or in the cloud. Join Karen Garcia as she provides insider tips for administrators to configure and diagnose the root cause of the most common scenarios using ArcGIS Monitor.

ArcGIS Enterprise: Best practices for layers and service types
Benny Yang and Patrick Peng, Esri Singapore

Managing services is no easy feat. Creating workflows for publishing GIS services alone requires several factors taken into consideration which includes scalability and service capability among others. Let Benny Yang and Patrick Peng lead you through this session about the different types of services and their capabilities, as well as tips on how you can leverage on these services to enhance your publishing workflows.

ArcGIS Urban & ArcGIS Indoors: A 3D journey of discovery
Thibault Poncet, Esri Singapore

Around the world, organisations use GIS to visualise the built environment, make smarter plans, engage stakeholders and foster vibrant communities. In living cities where planning is a constant, the ability to visualise and interact in 3D is the key to achieving a sustainable and progressive community. You’ve probably heard all the buzz about ArcGIS Urban lately and are ready to transform your community into a showcase for smart city planning. ArcGIS Urban is a 3D modelling and planning system to orchestrate urban development. You will also learn about Esri’s new indoor mapping system, ArcGIS Indoors, that serves as the foundation for spatial indoor workspace and operations management by offering capabilities such as indoor data curation and map making. In this 3D journey of discovery, Thibault Poncet will share the newly released features of ArcGIS Urban and Indoors, the latest products from Esri designed to revolutionise and streamline urban planning.

Discovering the new Insights with ArcGIS Online
Meenu Bala Saharan and Yin Yue, Esri Singapore

As part of the Esri Geospatial Cloud, ArcGIS Online enables you to connect people, locations and data using interactive maps.

Work with smart, data-driven styles and intuitive analysis tools that deliver location intelligence and share your insights to the audience of your choice. Understand your data and make informed decisions by analysing data with a location perspective. In this session, Meenu Bala Saharan and Yin Yue will demonstrate how to simply and quickly ask your data questions, get answers and visualise data in a highly interactive workspace.

Procedures for generating and evaluating 3D urban models
Patrick Janssen, National University of Singapore

This session covers a best practice approach to generating and evaluating 3D urban models and is perfect for anyone involved in urban planning, 3D data modelling and simulation. To help planners evaluate 3D urban models, proposed workflow for procedural scenario planning starts with the generation of base layers using geospatial data extracted with ArcMap. The base layers are imported into a modelling platform that allows planners to define procedures for generating street networks and urban massing models. Using a visual programming approach, the platform allows planners with no programming skills to create complex procedures with local and global constraints. The resulting street networks and urban massing.

ArcGIS Pro & Desktop masterclass
Cheryl Lai and Ying Bo, Esri Singapore

ArcGIS Pro is designed to be an integral part of the modern web GIS pattern which allows you to work on projects, both in 2D and 3D. In this session, Cheryl Lai and Ying Bo will guide you along as they demonstrate the essential ArcGIS Pro capabilities for data visualisation and content management. You'll also explore new workflows for spatial analysis, smart mapping, among other exciting capabilities.

The transformative power of Machine Learning and AI in GIS
Abhijit Sarkar, Esri Singapore

The world is becoming more instrumented every day with the Internet of Things (IoT). Meanwhile, Machine Learning (ML), a branch of Artificial Intelligence (AI), is a disruptive force that’s changing how organisations extract new insight from their data. Abhijit will provide an overview of ML capabilities in ArcGIS in making predictions, classifying imagery and identifying clustering. Through use cases and demonstrations, he will also illustrate how the ArcGIS platform uses ML to solve challenging data science problems.
