Version 4.4 of ESdat Online and ESdat Server adds some significant new functionality to that available in Version 4.3.

Functional Enhancements

Power BI

Power BI connection available for live data connections.

Excel and Other Applications

The “OData” protocol for Power BI also allows live data connections from ESdat Online or cloud hosted ESdat Server to Excel or other Applications that support OData. In Excel this means you can create graphs, and have them auto-update as data is loaded into ESdat.

ArcGIS and other GIS

A GeoJSON export is now available from ESdat, which can be periodically refreshed in ArcGIS Professional to keep your maps up to date. This data is in a consistent structure to the Power BI and OData data feed for consistency across all your external integrations.

Single Sign On

ESdat now supports Azure Active Directory Single Sign On for Hosted ESdat Servers and ESdat Online.

Internal Mapping

Vector layers can now be loaded to overlay the satellite imagery

WFS and WMS Layers are now supported in ESdat Online (previously only ESdat Server)

Document Storage

Ability to store documents, or links to documents related to a Site and/or Project.
