Esri Wins Visual Studio Magazine’s Readers Choice Award

Redlands, California— December 6, 2010 —Esri received the top honor in the mapping/geographic information system (GIS) components category of Visual Studio Magazine's Readers Choice Awards. Esri won the award for its ArcGIS API for Microsoft Silverlight/Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).

The ArcGIS API is designed for developers who want to create Web-based mapping applications quickly and easily with minimal coding. Many governments and businesses use the API because it provides an intuitive framework for creating GIS Web applications, such as data portals and interactive map viewers, and combines multiple technologies into a single development platform.

"I'm pleased to see Visual Studio users finding so much use for the ArcGIS API for Microsoft Silverlight in their daily work," says Jack Dangermond, Esri president. "GIS is the best tool for organizing geographic knowledge, and this API is a key component for sharing this knowledge and integrating it with everything we do."

Visual Studio Magazine's Readers Choice Awards recognize the most influential and widely used third-party tools in the Visual Studio and Microsoft .NET Framework development space. This year's contest spanned 29 categories, including new ones for components and in the areas of team development, life cycle management, and data handling.
