5
Sharing Analysis
  • Simple concept
  • Powerful implications
  • Reuse of your tradecraft with others
  • Others can easily learn from your hard work and
    expertise.

6
Basics of Geoprocessing Packages
7
Remember this
8
What is a geoprocessing package?
  • A compressed file (.gpk) containing ArcGIS tools
    and data

9
What is a geoprocessing package?
  • A compressed file (.gpk) containing ArcGIS tools
    and data
  • Designed to enable GIS professionals to easily
    share analysis work

10
What is a geoprocessing package?
  • A compressed file (.gpk) containing ArcGIS tools
    and data
  • Designed to enable GIS professionals to easily
    share analysis work
  • Can be shared
  • As a file uploaded to ArcGIS Online
  • As an attachment to an email
  • Across a network

  • Can be shared
  • As a file uploaded to ArcGIS Online
  • As an attachment to an email
  • Across a network
  • Unpacked and consumed by ArcGIS Desktop orArcGIS
    Runtime applications

12
Why use geoprocessing packages?
  • Improve productivity
  • Learn from experts
  • Fewer resources wasted on duplicating efforts
  • Enable more people to work in parallel

13
Why use geoprocessing packages?
  • Improve productivity
  • Learn from experts
  • Fewer resources wasted on duplicating efforts
  • Enable more people to work in parallel
  • Enhance collaboration
  • Efficient team work within an organization
  • Combine the power of a large pool of diverse
    talents
  • Be part of the ArcGIS Online community

15
Creating Geoprocessing Packages
16
The steps
  • Only successfully run analyses can be shared

17
Prepare tools for sharing
18
Prepare tools for sharing
  • Test and debug models, scripts, and tools with
    data

19
Prepare tools for sharing
  • Test and debug models, scripts, and tools with
    data
  • Take the time and effort to document the tools
  • Go beyond the minimum requirement

20
Prepare tools for sharing
  • Test and debug models, scripts, and tools with
    data
  • Take the time and effort to document the tools
  • Go beyond the minimum requirement
  • Considerations for sharing
  • Size of the data included in the package

21
Run tools
  • Execute the tools, which will write results in
    the Results window
  • Only valid results can be shared as packages

22
Run tools
  • Execute the tools, which will write results in
    the Results window
  • Only valid results can be shared as packages
  • A geoprocessing package can have more than one
    result
  • Consolidate different results into one package

23
Share analyses as geoprocessing packages
24
Creating a Geoprocessing Package
  • Demo

25
Using and Customizing Geoprocessing Packages
26
Using and Customizing Geoprocessing Packages
  • Ashley Pengelly

27
Using geoprocessing packages The steps
28
Get geoprocessing packages
  • Search for geoprocessing packages on ArcGIS
    Online
  • Keyword search
  • Search for tools
  • Options to download or open in ArcGIS Desktop

29
Get geoprocessing packages
  • Search for geoprocessing packages on ArcGIS
    Online
  • Keyword search
  • Search for tools
  • Options to download or open in ArcGIS Desktop
  • Receive geoprocessing packages from others
  • Email
  • ftp
  • File sharing

30
Unpack a geoprocessing package
31
Use geoprocessing package in ArcGIS
  • Unpacked results are available in the¬†Shared¬†node
    in the Results Window

Folder Structure Demystified
Where do my packages live?
XP C\Documents and Settings\ltusernamegt\My
Documents\ArcGIS\Packages Vista and Windows 7
C\Users\ltusernamegt\Documents\ArcGIS\Packages
37
Folder Structure Demystified
Top level folder name comes from the Name of
Result
  • Commondata folder
  • For items that are version independent
  • Ie Shapefiles, File based rasters
  • Shapefile that was used
  • as input.
  • All non spatial files
  • Ie Additional files
  • Original toolbox
  • and model
  • Version specific data
  • Ie. gdbs, toolboxes
  • Output dataset
  • geoprocessingTask created
  • from original model
  • (Tasks are needed to handle limitations
  • of geoprocessing services.)
  • Result file (.rlt)

38
Python Scripts
  • Python script tools are scanned
  • Found data is consolidated
  • Consolidated script tool is modified (modify only
    what is necessary)
  • We have to recognize the data
  • Considerations
  • Raw building of paths
  • Importing other Python Modules (Third party)

Custom Tools
  • Considerations
  • Manual steps involved to ensure consumers of your
    package are using the same 3rd party custom
    tools.
