Updated Basemap Services
Contributions to World Topographic Map, one of the three community basemaps being built and expanded with detailed data from GIS organizations around the world, continue to grow. The latest updates to World Topographic Map include data from the Dutch Kadaster, which contributed airports, buildings, and neighborhood data from its topographic database; the Spanish Instituto Nacional de Estadística and Instituto Geográfico Nacional/Centro Nacional de Información Geográfica, which contributed administrative boundaries, buildings, hydrology, landmarks, parks, and airports data; the Czech Office for Surveying, Mapping, and Cadastre, which contributed administrative boundaries, landmarks, parks, roads, hydrology, building, contours, hillshade, and vegetation data; and British Ordnance Survey, which contributed data for several major cities in the United Kingdom that includes administrative boundaries, neighborhood, railroads, roads, hydrology, vegetation, and landforms data.

Fun with GIS #80: Easy Interactive Geographic Presentations (Esri Schools Program)

Friday, April 8th, 2011

Article source: Charlie Fitzpatrick, Co-Manager, Esri Schools Program

Tired of PowerPoint? Want interactive maps in a presentation? Head to ArcGIS Explorer Online, a web application that uses the free Microsoft Silverlight plug-in for web browsers on either Windows or Macintosh.

Building an interactive presentation is a pretty simple process, but more easily shown in a movie than written out step-by-step. Head to the Esri EdTeam YouTube Channel and see the short movie “Fun with GIS #80.” (Note the other useful videos to explore there as well.)

These interactive presentations can engage both professionally produced data or personally generated content. ArcGIS Explorer Online also has capacity to do SQL queries, even against large data sets (see blog and movie for “Fun With GIS #78“).

With titles, notes, bookmarks, and queries, ArcGIS Explorer Online is a powerful tool for presenting information or letting viewers interact with content to understand it more deeply. Terrific for STEM content (including Social Studies), for sure, but consider also the endless opportunities in the English/ Language Arts arena.

Video: Data Extraction Services in ArcGIS Server 10

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Esri Product Manager Ismael Chivite describes how to serve your maps in a way that your users can select and download map data for their own use. You can do this by using one of the sample data extraction models provided with ArcGIS Server 10. These models are written in Python, so you can customize them or use as-is. Ismael demonstrates how to create both a map service for the layers of your map, and a geoprocessing service which provides the select, extract, and download operations. If you add in the optional Data Interoperability Extension, you can provide your users over 100 different GIS and spatial data formats to choose from.
