In this HowTo tutorial you’ll learn how to get real-time, geo-enabled remote monitoring data from tools.valarm.net into the Esri GeoEvent Extension so you’ll have it in your Esri GIS for big data analysis, warehousing, and decision-support roles. This is done in the screenshot on the right where you see water quality sensor data and pH levels from this Valarm deployment in remote Pennsylvania streams.
First off make sure you’ve got these things set up:
- Valarm Tools Cloud JSON API URL for your Valarm sensor data flowing to tools.valarm.net (See the screenshot above and here’s a tutorial on connecting your sensor devices to Valarm Tools Cloud. Also, this page has all the info you’ll need on Valarm’s sensor APIs)
- Installed and configured Esri ArcGIS Server
- Installed and configured Esri GeoEvent Extension for ArcGIS Server
Once you’ve got those things then connect to your Esri GeoEvent Extension Manager in your web browser and follow the steps below!
Now you’ve seen how easy it is to bring your real-time, geo-enabled Valarm sensor data into the Esri ArcGIS Platform by using GeoEvent Extension!
