Esri Releases ArcGIS Pro Workstation for the IC

New configuration provides activity-based intelligence and foundational data management capabilities


Esri (Booth 829) announced at GEOINT 2018 it is releasing the Intelligence Configuration for ArcGIS Pro (ICAP), a workstation for intelligence analysts. ICAP leverages ArcGIS Pro SDK to provide a custom managed configuration and add-ins, offering streamlined user experiences and specialized tools to aid analysts in examining relationships and patterns and determining probabilities related to the target’s most likely course of action.

“Esri is very pleased to be making ArcGIS Pro customized for the needs of the intelligence community,” said Phil Suarez, intelligence support to operations at Esri. “Intelligence analysts have a specific set of needs, and they all contain the component of location. The unique configuration that ICAP brings to the intelligence community enables a more efficient and streamlined workflow for data gathering and analysis than has ever been possible.”

When using ICAP, for instance, to track smugglers who are crossing borders, an intelligence analyst has a mass of point locations and can use a spatial query to filter for the relevant data and identify the smugglers’ possible routes.

ICAP capabilities include:

Link charts: ICAP provides the ability to visualize entities and their relationships. This capability allows analysts to easily see, edit, and manipulate link diagrams of people, groups, and events that would otherwise be viewed in a table or on a map. 

Conditions and alerts: ICAP provides a way for analysts to designate conditions based on a set of queries and then be alerted when these conditions are met. 

Data management: ICAP will bring the most commonly used data management tools to the forefront, placing widely used tools in a custom data management ribbon.
