ESRIUC Notes – Top 10 new features in ArcGIS 10.2

I’m a big fan of Top 10 lists, and I’m also a fan of the annual ESRIUC, so when there happens to be a Top 10 list featured on stage at the event I tend to take note! This year the list focused on the top new features in ArcGIS at R 10.2. ArcGIS product lead, Jim McKinney from Esri introduced some of the new functionality on stage at UC and he was followed up by James Tedrick with his Top 10 new features at 10.2:

  1. Excel tools including two geoprocessing tools, for automation and excel export native XLS
  2. Jason support and json loader, and export
  3. New simplified tools. Hotspot tool for quick hotspot generation
  4. Ready to use services live affix, routing, geo coding and more right within desktop
  5. More security support
  6. Sharing services within your org via ArcGIS online portal
  7. Hundreds of new solution templates to get started fast.. Find relevant solutions for your workflow
  8. Esri on github where you find templates, code and more – Eg. Social media template
  9. Better performance  Eg. Indexing of LAS files for faster workload
  10. Tools rewritten to take advantage of multiple CPUs… And parallel processing
