An ArcGIS Jumpstart is like trying to fly without a parachute

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

Have you ever come across an ArcGIS Jumpstart? Sounds quick, easy and cheap. Right?

Generally that’s the point. Some quick guidance and you are on your own. So let me ask this. Have you ever watched people with home made planes jumping off piers? Watch below:

No parachute but a nice soft landing! To my mind this is an ArcGIS Jumpstart. Why?

ArcGIS Online has made GIS more affordable that is true. Has it made GIS simpler. Certain tasks yes. Using our GIS Solutions Pyramid, the lower 2 tiers: basic map publishing and build a map have been simplified.

Simpler yes. Easy. No.

Thinking spatially and applying geospatial technologies like ArcGIS takes training and expertise. Rather like flying.

Helen and I agree. Clients looking to use ArcGIS need a runway built. Data preparation, data management, flexible applications : a path from problem to solution. Your ‘where’ questions are likely many and varied. ArcGIS is the perfect technology to answer all these questions. Definitely look for help when you step into the technology. But make sure that help is focused on a runway and not a short, wet landing!
