We’re a little over a month away from the 2018 Esri User Conference in beautiful San Diego, California. The Esri UC is always our biggest, most anticipated event of the year, and 2018 is expected to be no different.

The conference brings together tens of thousands of members of the Esri community, from every corner of the globe. It’s our best opportunity to connect with our customers and partners, meet new people, and share the exciting work we’ve been doing with Geocortex.

In the last year we’ve seen a lot of transition and innovation in the Esri ecosystem, and we have some exciting, related developments in the Geocortex world that we can’t wait to share with you. Here’s what you can expect to see and hear about from us at this year’s Esri UC.

Geocortex and Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS®

Last year’s release of Geocortex Workflow 5 was a major milestone for Geocortex technology. We expanded our offerings to not only add value alongside ArcGIS, but also the ability to leverage Geocortex functionality inside Esri applications.

Our guiding principle has always been helping Esri customers accomplish even more with their investment in ArcGIS. With the introduction of Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS, we saw an opportunity to continue to provide powerful functionality to help Esri users build better apps, but with more deployment flexibility.

Geocortex Workflow 5 represents the first product in the Geocortex Essentials 5-series, a collection of capability-based products that will feature an edition specifically for use within Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS.

This year, we’re excited to be showcasing the second Geocortex Essentials 5-series product: Geocortex Reporting 5. Reports that organizations need come in all shapes and sizes – from basic mailing label reports to inspection compliance reports for governing bodies like FEMA – and they can range substantially in terms of complexity. Geocortex Reporting 5 simplifies the often-manual process of gathering, organizing, and sharing important data in reports.


Geocortex Reporting 5 Designer

Application administrators can add the Geocortex Reporting 5 widget to apps built with Web AppBuilder, allowing their users to generate reports from ready-made templates they’ve designed in the intuitive, web-based report designer.

Later this year and into 2019, we’ll continue to release Geocortex Essentials 5-series products, with new viewer technologies and Geocortex Printing 5 coming next. Be sure to keep an eye on our website, blog, social channels, and communities to stay up-to-date on what’s coming.

The evolution Geocortex Essentials

With all this talk about Geocortex and Web AppBuilder, you may be wondering what this means for existing Geocortex customers. We are actively developing new products based on the Geocortex Essentials capabilities our customers know and love and are excited to offer them to Geocortex customers as part of their Geocortex Essentials maintenance program.

The introduction of the 5-series means we’ll see Geocortex Essentials evolve from a large framework to a collection of powerful, standalone products that work together to provide the same configurability, power, and value that customers are used to today. Down the road, the 5-series will even include brand-new viewer frameworks!

Geocortex Solutions: Crime Forecasting and Inline

We’re also excited to be showcasing two new solutions at this year’s event.

Inline: Inline transforms how you manage, visualize, and interact with linear asset data inside your GIS. Data is presented with intuitive charts and data linked to the relative position of a linear feature and provides configuration options for symbolization and summary of attributes.Inline interface

Inline enhances productivity and allows organizations to tap into powerful decision making, processing, and integration tools to enhance their investment in linear referenced data. We’re seeing considerable interest in Inline from pipeline operators and transportation organizations, and implementations are currently underway with several customers.

Crime Forecasting: Crime Forecasting is a predictive policing tool that uses machine learning to turn simple, historic crime data into actionable crime forecasts. Forecasts are precise; they predict within a 300’X 300’ block and a 2-hour time window where a particular type of crime might occur. Only three pieces of information are needed: location, data/time, and crime type. No personal or sensitive data is required.

The Vancouver Police Department (VPD) ran a successful pilot in 2016, where they were able to reduce property crimes by as much as 27% in some areas. By looking at what took place in the field against predictions made for the same day, VPD estimated that the system predicted with up to 80% accuracy. You can learn more about VPD’s success with Crime Forecasting on our blog.
