An overview of the Manage Data toolset

The Manage Data toolset contains tools used for the day-to-day management of geographic data.

This toolset uses distributed processing to complete analytics on your GeoAnalytics Server.


These tools are available when you have an active ArcGIS Enterprise portal that has a GeoAnalytics Server configured for Feature Analysis - GeoAnalytics Tools. To access and run the tools, you must have spatial analysis privileges. The tools will not work if your active portal is ArcGIS Online.

These tools can be accessed from either the Analysis ribbon or the Geoprocessing pane's Portal tab.
