One of the products being showcased is ArcGIS Explorer, a new, free application which will enable users to explore data for the entire world in 2D and 3D seamlessly. ArcGIS Explorer is similar in concept to other viewers like Google Earth, but has a range of additional capabilities, especially some designed for use within a corporate environment when used along with other products from the ArcGIS family. It will allow users to obtain a common operating picture of their business or other areas of interest while performing queries and analysis on underlying data. ArcGIS Explorer will be available with the release of ArcGIS 9.2.
ArcGIS 9.2 is the latest enhancement to ESRI’s leading ArcGIS software solution. It is a complete system for authoring, serving, and using geographic knowledge. “This release, for us, is one of the biggest, most productive releases that we have ever done,” said Jack Dangermond, ESRI president. “Our goal is to make the software much easier to use, more reliable, of higher quality, and with many new capabilities,” he said.
The seminars will illustrate
- Improvements in software quality, documentation, productivity, and performance as well as simpler use and system administration
- Support for evolving computer trends and standards such as integrating new platforms, Web services, service-oriented architecture (SOA) standards, and new geospatial data types
- New and enhanced capabilities including innovations in areas such as data management, spatial analysis and modeling, intelligent cartography, and mobile GIS.
