ArcGIS Velocity

What is ArcGIS Velocity?

ArcGIS Velocity is the real-time and big data processing and analysis add-on capability for ArcGIS Online.

It allows you to import, visualize, analyze, store, and use data from Internet of Things (IoT) sensors.

It also helps users process, visualize, and analyze real-time data feeds; store those feeds as big data; and perform fast queries and analysis.

You can also design analytic models to process high-volume historical data and gain insights into patterns, trends, and anomalies.


You can use Velocity for the following types of workflows:

  • Connect to IoT systems and visualize sensor observations.
  • Create a geofence around an area of interest to detect the spatial proximity of events.
  • Process data faster than with your existing tools and workflows.
  • Enrich and filter observations to focus on the most interesting event data.
  • Manage data in real time as a service.
  • Explore data to identify important patterns and trends.
  • Use spatial statistical analysis and machine learning tools suitable for large datasets.
  • Use cloud solutions instead of managing a multi-machine deployment for real-time and big data use cases.

How Velocity Works?

ArcGIS Velocity works with vector and tabular data and can receive real-time observations over HTTP, connect to IoT cloud providers such as Azure and Cisco, or consume from Kafka, MQTT, RabbitMQ, and other messaging technologies.

  • Connect: Connect to real-time, streaming IoT data from multiple feeds and visualize directly in maps.
  • Analyze: Speed up your analysis and get answers faster when you set up analytical models in the cloud.
  • Alert and actuate: Take action with your analyses. Share the results and alert stakeholders when it matters.

How do you get access Velocity?

To get access to Velocity, you’ll need a Velocity license for your ArcGIS Online subscription, which includes enough compute and storage capacity for multiple tracking and monitoring use cases.
