ArcGIS Map Integration

By sisense

The ArcGIS Map Integration add on creates a new widget type that displays configurable and filterable ArcGIS web maps. The Polygon Lasso feature can be use to select multiple points on the map and dynamic create dashboard filters. Additional features include widget-level PDF exports, geo-search, switchable basemaps, dynamic zoom, and tooltips.
Note: Using ArcGIS will require an ArcGIS license.

To install the ArcGIS Map Integration add on:

  1. Download the attachment.
  2. Extract the .zip folder into the plugins folder. If the folder does not exist, create it prior to extracting the .zip file.
    For V7.1 and earlier: C:\Program Files\Sisense\PrismWeb\plugins
    For V7.2 and later: C:\Program Files\Sisense\app\plugins
  3. Configure your default settings, including your default webmap ID, by modifying the included config.6.js file. Instructions below under the Configuration header.
  4. Refresh Sisense application and create new widget with the ArcGIS widget type.

Configuration:

  • Persist Positioning – Enable map centering and zoom persistence, otherwise map will return to default lat, long and zoom after each reload
  • Custom PDF Message – Message displayed on PDF preview and export
  • Popup On Hover – Enable hover-fired popups

2. Filters:

  • Collapsed – Collapsed filters upon dynamic creation with Polygon lasso (setting this option to ‘false’ is recommended if filtering 20+ members)

  • Color – Color can be color string, hex string, or array of RGBA values
