Enhancements:

  • ArcGIS JavaScript API migrated to version 4.x
  • Web Map Builder uses smartMapping module(s) from API throughout
  • Web Map Builder now has a new option to allow proportional symbols for count data (user option). This option is available from the ellipsis menu in the top right corner
  • Inspector now shows warning messages when Item_Order is missing for an Indicator in the master table
  • Web Map Builder now handles categoric data gracefully
  • The Data Catalog Manager pre-checks for new core layers in hosted tables to ensure that updates stay in sync
  • The Data Catalog Manager disables buttons in the UI that trigger an update whilst another update is still processing
  • Minor UI cleanup around dialogs and buttons

Bug fixes:

  • Web Map Builder will now exclude data where all values are null from the map – previously this was causing an error dialog to appear
  • Web Map Builder how handles Feature Collections properly when opening an existing web map – previously this was generating a JSON error
  • Metadata page now falls back to using the standard metadata table if there is not one defined within the targeted master table

IA Data Explorer – 10 July 2020 Release Notes

The latest version of InstantAtlas Data Explorer (version 2.0.2) is now available at https://hub.instantatlas.com/.

Version 2.0.2 includes two areas of change.

View ArcGIS Online Item button

If you are signed in to ArcGIS Online (i.e. you sign in via the Data Catalog app or the Data Explorer app is launched with a ?token=xxxxxx argument) you will see a View ArcGIS Online Item button displayed under the Data, Map, Time Series or Ranked Bar Chart tabs.

IA data explorer link to item button

When clicked, the button takes you to the item in ArcGIS Online that contains the data for indicator you are viewing in the data explorer.

This button has been added in order to make it easy to obtain the endpoint of the ArcGIS feature layer containing an indicator from an InstantAtlas data catalog. There are a number of scenarios in which it might be useful to have the endpoint, one being that it enables the use of the data held in the data catalog in other third party systems, such as Microsoft Power BI for example.

Update to sharing/token behaviour

The Data Explorer has been updated so that when it is run in authorised mode (i.e. not shared with everyone) it will pass the token down to all of the feature services it uses. Furthermore, a public-shared Data Explorer will detect whether it needs a sign in for specific feature layers. If the data for the indicator searched for is stored in a feature layer that is protected, the user will be asked to sign in to ArcGIS Online in order to view the indicator in question.

IA National Data Service – June 2020 Data Update

Crime

Crime data updated 3 June. All affected reports updated by 4 June.

Claimant count

Claimant count data updated on day of publication 16 June. All affected reports updated by 18 June.

Population estimates

The finalised population estimates were released and checked. Only metadata changes were required – see update for May 2020.

Net Housing Additions

The Net Housing Additions data for 2018-19 was added on 15 June.

Notes

With the COVID response demands reducing and a new member of staff joining the Data team we will be aiming to catch up on non-API data sources over the next couple of months.

We are continuing to add processing improvements into the system. These will be rolling out behind the scenes aimed at improving the speed of data being available in the system and the outputs.

IA National Data Service – May 2020 Data Update

Crime

March data available in system from 1 May and all affected reports updated.

Claimant count

Claimant count data updated on day of publication 19 May. Reports followed with all affected reports updated by 25 May.

Population estimates

Provisional Population Estimates for large areas for 2019 were released on 6 May. Generally we avoid provisional data to avoid changing numbers. This was an unusual step on behalf of ONS as part of measures to support the COVID-19 response. We made the data available on the 13 May and updated the affected reports by 15 May. The metadata denoted the provisional nature of the figures. ONS released the final version of the figures on 24 June. The only change from the provisional data was additional data for Northern Ireland so the English National Data Service data was unaffected beyond an update to the metadata.
