The Esri Community Analyst APIs provide access to the functionality of the Community Analyst web-based application via a number of Web APIs. The APIs provide access to Esri-hosted services to help you build custom web, mobile and desktop applications that include demographic health, crime and business data reporting capabilities.
Information about people and places can be aggregated and summarized at 10 geography levels or specified by polygon, drive time, or distance. Reports are provided as presentation-ready PDFs, Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, or XML streams. To see the Community Analyst API in action, view the Flex SDK and Silverlight SDK interactive samples. Applications built with the Esri Community Analyst API can be used to better understand the particular characteristics of a population in a specific neighborhood determining the impact of a public works project on households and more examples.
