Review of ArcView 10

Today I went to a seminar from ESRI for increasing productivity in ArcGIS 10.  I will say that I am very excited about the new functionality in AV 10.

Some of the bigger things that I noted:

    • Available for Apple IOS
    • Will be available for Android by year’s end
    • Allows users to input data in field
    • It is available for ArcView Desktop

    • Basemaps
      • Available online with ESRI global account (free)
      • Shared data from all over the world
      • Imagery to 1 meter or better in U.S.
      • These are community base maps available
  • Can create basemaps  within AV10
    • Add layers by dragging them in and it creates like a cached layer
    • Refresh is almost instant for the basemap
    • Layer Package
      • They have a new layer package so that you can send layer(s) to others but in the package it maintains the theme definitions in addition to the symbolog
