ArcGIS's smart mapping is based on the philosophy that making visually beautiful maps should be easy for everyone. Here is what you can expect:

  • Workflows analyze your data and suggest the best way to represent it.
  • Smart defaults take the guesswork out of setting up many of the map properties.
  • Based on the basemap you select, ArcGIS can automatically suggest and coordinate colors and other map styling.
  • Automatically suggest visible ranges so you’ll see your data at scales that make sense.
  • You get to preview your styling choices on your screen.
  • Create and share web scenes in your browser with 3D Web Scenes in ArcGIS for Server.
  • ArcGIS for Server with Portal for ArcGIS can now host web scenes and layers that include multipatch-based 3D models and symbology, such as photo-realistic buildings, trees, and visibility domes.
