*Using Data Expressions in ArcGIS Dashboards*

*Tuesday, March 26th 12-1:30pm*

Sometimes you need to manipulate the data in your dashboard, for example
adding a new field to hold a calculation or modified string, or collating
data that is spread across multiple fields or layers. Data expressions to
the rescue! Data expressions are Arcade expressions written to return a
FeatureSet which can be used in the dashboard. In this lunchtime session we
will go through some examples of how you might use them.

Please register to attend: NEARC Community Event Registration

Do you have a Dashboard project that you’d like to share with the NEARC
Community? We want to hear from you!

We are inviting users to submit a 5 minute lightning talk to show off their
