ESRI goes on the road with ArcGIS

October 17, 2006 -- ESRI (UK) will be showcasing the latest developments in GIS software including the latest release of its ArcGIS suite at a series of Tech Updates across the UK. Around 500 delegates are expected to attend the four, free, one-day seminars, aimed at geographic information systems (GIS) professionals. The events are being held in Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham and London in October and November.

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.
The seminars are designed for current users of ESRI software, including GIS analysts and coordinators. IT/IS managers and technology strategists will also benefit from attending. They are being held at the following locations:

		Edinburgh 	31 October 2006
		Manchester 	09 November 2006
		Birmingham 	14 November 2006
		London 		16 November 2006
While there is no cost to attend, seating is limited and pre-registration is required. For further information and to register, visit
