What's new in ArcView Spatial Analyst Version 1.1?

What's new in ArcView Spatial Analyst Version 1.1

  • A new menu interface.  This was changed to coincide with the new ArcView 3D AnalystTM extension. There is overlapping functionality in these extensions that is presented in the same manner whether you load ArcView Spatial Analyst, 3D Analyst, or both.  Instead of just having an Analysis menu, the surface related options have all been moved over into a Surface menu.
  • The ability to work with the ArcView 3D Analyst extension. ArcView Spatial Analyst Version 1.1 has been released at the same time as ArcView 3D Analyst Version 1.0 so that they may be loaded and used at the same time.  Prior versions of ArcView Spatial Analyst are not supported when 3D Analyst is installed.
  • Critical enhancements and improvements in quality, including some new functionality at the AvenueTM request level, and bug fixes.
  • The visibility request, Calculate Viewshed, was added to the Surface menu.  Also, the visibility request now respects the Analysis properties.
  • The Grid Manager, on the File menu, was renamed Manage Data Sources.  The new Source Manager provides management for shapefiles as well as grids.
  • Four new requests were added:
      Grid.CalcPolynomialFit - performs a linear least squares fit to a list of links
      aGrid.StreamToPolyLineFTab - converts a linear network to a polyline shapefile
      aGrid.AsPointFTab - converts a grid to a point shapefile
      aGrid.AsPolyLineFTab - converts a grid to a polyline shapefile

Installing ArcView Spatial Analyst Version 1.1 and sample data

Important Note:
If you have previously edited your ArcView Spatial Analyst Version 1.0 or 1.0a spatial.cnt file:
Installing ArcView Spatial Analyst Version 1.1 will overwrite this file. Save this file to another location before installing. Once ArcView Spatial Analyst Version 1.1 is installed, put the edits from the saved spatial.cnt into the newly installed spatial.cnt.

Installing ArcView Spatial Analyst Version 1.1 for ArcView GIS Version 3.1

Note: Be sure you are installing the correct version of ArcView Spatial Analyst with the correct version of ArcView.  The following steps describe how to install ArcView Spatial Analyst Version 1.1 for ArcView GIS Version 3.1.

1. Insert the ArcView Spatial Analyst Version 1.1 CD in your CD-ROM drive.

2. Become root user (excluding Solaris 2.x, and IRIX 6.x):

% su

You will be prompted for your root user password. If you do not know this password, contact your system administrator.

3. If a cdrom directory does not exist, create it using the following command:

# mkdir /cdrom

4. To mount the ArcView Spatial Analyst CD, use one of the following for your installation platform (where <dev> stands for the CD-ROM device):

Digital UNIX           mount -t cdfs -r -o nodefperm,rrip /<dev> /cdrom
HP 9000/700            mount -F cdfs -r /<dev> /cdrom (or use sam)
IBM RS/6000          mount -v 'cdrfs' -p'' -r'' /<dev> /cdrom (or use smit)
SGI                            IRIX 6.x automatically mounts the CD as /CDROM
Solaris 2.x                Includes the Volume ManagementTM software that automatically
                                    mounts the CD, providing immediate access to your CD-ROM

5. Once the ArcView Spatial Analyst CD is mounted, exit root user mode:

# exit

6. The "install" command has five options from which to select:
Usage: install <-help | -load | -remove | -verify | -lmhostid>.

Use the "-help" option to read more about the installation procedure.

7. Before starting the ArcView Spatial Analyst CD installation for your platform, go to where your arcview3 directory is located:

% cd $AVHOME
% cd ..

Note: You will need to have write permission to your $AVHOME directory. For more information about the $AVHOME directory, please refer to the ArcView GIS Installation Guide (av31install.html) located in your $AVHOME/avdocs directory or on the ArcView GIS Version 3.1 CD.
 
8. To start the installation for the ArcView Spatial Analyst and tutorial data, type one of the following for your installation platform:

Digital UNIX           /cdrom/spat11_31/osf/install -load
HP 9000/700           /cdrom/spat11_31/hpux/install -load
IBM RS/6000         /cdrom/spat11_31/ibm/install -load
SGI                           /CDROM/spat11_31/sgi/install -load
Solaris 2.x              /cdrom/cdrom0/spat11_31/solaris/install -load
 
This starts the dialog for the menu-driven installation procedure. Default selections are noted in brackets [ ]. To obtain a list of options or on-line help, type "?" at any prompt. You can quit the installation procedure at any time by typing quit or "q". To return to a previous question, type a caret, "^".

Do not accept the default CD-ROM mount point when installing ArcView Spatial Analyst, instead, the CD-ROM mount point should read as follows:

/cdrom/spat11_31/<platform>
/cdrom/cdrom0/spat11_31/solaris (Solaris 2.x only)

Note: The path name you specify as the ArcView Spatial Analyst installation directory should be the same as the path to your arcview3 directory and can't contain any uppercase letters.
 

Installing the sample data
The ArcView Spatial Analyst CD contains 300 MB of sample data for use with the ArcView Spatial Analyst. To start the installation, type one of the following for your installation platform:

Digital UNIX           /cdrom/spat11_31/osf/install -load
HP 9000/700           /cdrom/spat11_31/hpux/install -load
IBM RS/6000         /cdrom/spat11_31/ibm/install -load
SGI                           /CDROM/spat11_31/sgi/install -load
Solaris 2.x              /cdrom/cdrom0/spat11_31/solaris/install -load

The CD-ROM mount point should read as follows:

/cdrom/spatdata
/cdrom/cdrom0/spatdata (Solaris 2.x only)

Note: The size of the sample data is approximately 300 MB.

Setting up your account

1. Setting the HOME variable.

The HOME environment variable ($HOME) must be set to a directory that you have write access to.

2. Setting the LIBRARY PATH variable.

All platforms need to set the LIBRARY PATH to include the ArcView lib directory:

Digital UNIX
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH $AVHOME/lib:/usr/shlib

HP 9000/700
setenv SHLIB_PATH $AVHOME/lib

IBM RS/6000
setenv LIBPATH $AVHOME/lib:/usr/lib:/lib

SGI
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH $AVHOME/lib:/usr/lib

Solaris2
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH $AVHOME/lib:/usr/openwin/lib:/usr/ucblib
 
3. Then, at the command line prompt,

% source .cshrc

Note: You cannot start ArcView and ArcView Spatial Analyst until the license manager is running.

ArcView license manager

The user account that will start the license manager must have the AVHOME environment variable set.

% setenv AVHOME /<path_to_arcview3_install_directory>/arcview3

For more information about setting up the license manager, please refer to the ArcView GIS Installation Guide (av31install.html) located in your $AVHOME/avdocs directory or on the ArcView GIS Version 3.1 CD. For a detailed discussion of the license manager, refer to the License Manager's Guide included in your ArcView GIS package.

The license manager software is distributed with ArcView GIS. The files are located in the $AVHOME/sysgen directory.

  • ESRI - the ArcView application daemon
  • lmgrd - the license manager daemon
  • sample.dat - a sample license file
  • lmutil - the license manager executable
  • adminlicense - a utility to edit and verify the license file

There are eight options to the "lmutil" executable:

  • lmdiag - diagnoses a problem when a license cannot be checked out
  • lmdown - shuts down the license and application daemon
  • lmhostid - returns the FLEXlm® hostid of a workstation
  • lmremove - removes specific licenses
  • lmreread - informs the license daemon of changes in the license file
  • lmstat - reports on the status of the daemons and the license uses
  • lmver - reports the version of FLEXlm
  • -h[elp] - (prints this message)

There are three options to the "adminlicense" executable:

  • convert - converts the old time-out dates (31-dec-99) in the license file to no time-out date (1-jan-00)
  • verify - verifies the contents of the license.dat file
  • help - displays help for the adminlicense utility

The license manager daemon manages the ArcView daemon that reads the license information file. The license information file is specific to each site. The license.dat file looks similar to this:

SERVER   siddhartha   5500439b   1700
DAEMON   ESRI  $AVHOME/sysgen/ESRI
FEATURE  ArcView31  ESRI 1.000   1-jan-00   200    B2EF061B26BCDC05F17D ""
FEATURE  AVSpatial1 ESRI 1.000   1-jan-00   200    ABCE90A16C1C3310DCFD ""

Note: Even though you're installing ArcView Spatial Analyst Version 1.1, the application daemon version in line 3 will still read 1.000.

The first line identifies the name and FLEXlm hostid of the workstation (in this case, siddhartha) on your network that will be the server for the license manager (the node from which the license manager daemons will run).

The second line identifies the license daemon for ArcView and its location. The following lines specify the features that are to be licensed (e.g., ArcView GIS Version 3.1x and ArcView Spatial Analyst), the name of the daemon that manages the licenses (ESRI), application daemon version (1.000), the time-out date for the feature (1-jan-00), the number of users (200), and a keycode for the feature. Each line is called a FEATURE line.

Note: If you have a license for ArcView Spatial Analyst Version 1.0 or 1.0a, it will work with ArcView Spatial Analyst Version 1.1.
 

To obtain the license file for your site

To obtain the license file/feature line, you will need to provide, to ESRI or your distributor, the hostname and FLEXlm hostid of each workstation or server that will be running the license manager.

1. The hostname is obtained with the command:

% hostname

2. The FLEXlm hostid is obtained with the command:

% $AVHOME/sysgen/lmutil lmhostid

Installing the license file

Once you have received the license file for your site, append it to your $AVHOME/sysgen/license.dat. You must enter the file exactly as it appears; the license file is case-sensitive. Use the ADMINLICENSE command to check and verify your license file for errors. ADMINLICENSE must be run from within your window manager. Keep a copy of the license file you received from ESRI for future reference.

% cd $AVHOME/sysgen
% ./adminlicense

Once you have updated the license.dat file with the new feature line, update the daemons.

% $AVHOME/sysgen/lmutil lmreread -c $AVHOME/sysgen/license.dat
