The ArcGIS 10.5.0 GeoEvent Server extends the ArcGIS Platform's capabilities by incorporating real-time data into your GIS applications. It allows you to:

  • Connect and listen to real-time data streams.
  • Analyze and process data in real-time.
  • Send updates and alerts.
  • Extend the GeoEvent Server with custom components.

ArcGIS Solutions provides you with a number of custom components to extend out-of-the-box functionality of the GeoEvent Server and get you started working with real-time data in your organization. Download and deploy these components 'as is', or go to the ArcGIS Solutions for GeoEvent repository on GitHub to get the source code. Use the code as samples for your own projects, or fork and clone the repository to have all of the source code at your fingertips! From there it belongs to you:

  • Modify the code to fit your specific needs.
  • Use issue tracking to submit comments, enhancement requests, and bugs.
  • Submit pull requests to fix issues and bugs.
  • Create your own components and share them with the community.
