ESRI Launches Developer Network Program

Provides Resources to Build Solutions That Embed GIS Technology

Redlands, California-ESRI, the world leader in geographic information system (GIS) technology, today announced the launch of the ESRI Developer Network (EDN). EDN is an annual subscription-based program that provides software developers with the resources needed to build solutions that embed ESRI's desktop and server technologies.

The objectives of the EDN program include providing developers with premier GIS tools and resources that increase productivity and foster a collaborative environment, reducing the cost and complexity of doing GIS development, and providing maximum opportunities for developers on the ArcGIS platform. EDN subscriptions are available to all developer customers, not just ESRI business partners.

"While ESRI's current developer products are of great benefit in that they allow us to create custom vertical applications and extensions to meet our customers needs, the introduction of EDN will enable BCS to be more competitive," said Jim Tochterman, vice president Research & Development at Bradshaw Consulting Services. "EDN will allow us to increase the availability of development products to our developers and roll out larger test environments internally while not substantially increasing our development budget. EDN will also enable us to be more competitive in areas that may have been cost prohibitive such as server application development utilizing ArcGIS Server."

An annual EDN subscription provides

A library of software for developing and testing applications that includes

  • ArcGIS Server
  • ArcIMS
  • ArcSDE
  • ArcWeb Services
  • ArcGIS Engine Developer Kit
A collaborative developer Web site for use by both ESRI developers and program subscribers that is the portal to all things of interest to an ArcGIS developer

A comprehensive help system that includes

  • Library documentation
  • A help index and search facility
  • Code samples
  • Object models
For more information on EDN, please visit or call 1-800-447-9778. Outside the United States, contact your local ESRI distributor; see for a current distributor list.
