A number of ARCHIBUS Web forms merge ARCHIBUS information and workflows with rich data from a geographic information system (GIS). This GIS data is comprised of geo-scale data such as satellite images, topography, road networks, and place names, and it is delivered from a Web Service, which can be an external service or one hosted by your own organization.
For instance, within Web Central, you can see examples of the GIS views under Technologies/System Integrator Views/Geographical Information System (GIS) Views process. A number of the other views in Web Central, such as the Real Estate Portfolio Management dashboards, will incorporate GIS data if it is available.
ARCHIBUS, Inc. reserves the right to discontinue this service at any time without notice.
Using ArcGIS Online in Demonstrations
If you are an ARCHIBUS business partner or end user organization wishing to demonstrate ARCHIBUS forms and dashboards that use the ArcGIS Online services, go to the System Administration/Business Process Owner process and invoke the Edit Activity Parameters. Edit the ESRIArcGisOnlineServicesKey value to hold “ESRIDEMO3895”, then press Save.
There are no metered usage limits for using ArcGIS Online for demonstration; however, the demonstration mapping and geocoding services are less complete than the services available for production.
Using ArcGIS Online in Production
ARCHIBUS, Inc. has made arrangements with ESRI to bundle ArcGIS Online with the ARCHIBUS product. For the time being, ARCHIBUS deployments can use ArcGIS Online at no additional cost for reasonable average workloads. Each end-user organization has a limit of 20,000 queries annually, a quantity adequate to manage a portfolio of several hundred buildings. If you foresee heavy use of ArcGIS Online at your organization, please contact your business partner or ARCHIBUS sales to arrange for a larger pool of queries.
If you are a user organization looking to deploy ARCHIBUS forms and dashboards that use ArcGIS Online services go to the System Administration/Business Process Owner process and invoke the Edit Activity Parameters. Edit the ESRIArcGisOnlineServicesKey value to hold “ESRIAI4963”, then press Save.
Installing ArcGIS Online Views with V.18.2
If you have downloaded ArcGIS Online files as a patch to ARCHIBUS Web Central V.18.2, you install this patch by loading the .zip file, and then expanding the contents into your webapps\archibus folders, allowing WinZip to overwrite the existing files. The patch will update files in the following folders:
Now restart your Web application server. Views that can use GIS information, such as the Lease Dashboard, will now show these maps the next time you load those views.
If you are geocoding locations outside of North America, open the schema\ab-core\controls\ab-arcgis-map.js file, look for geoCodeLocator, and enable the “EU” geocode provider in place of the “NA” provider.
