ArcGIS for Local Government 10.1 Release Now Available

Today, we launched the first 10.1 release of the ArcGIS for Local Government solution.  It includes an update to each application (new Add-Ins and updated JavaScript and Flex applications) along with a new local government information model that you can use with your ArcGIS 10.1 deployment.  You’ll find these newly released maps and apps on ArcGIS Online and in the ArcGIS for Local Government Resource Center Gallery.

This marks the start of a quarterly release schedule for the ArcGIS for Local Government solution.  And we have done several things to make it easier for you to download and configure the solution in your organization.  Namely, we’ve synchronized the content in each map or app download.  This will ensure you receive a consistent representation of the information model and each application as you begin to leverage several of the maps and apps in your organization.  We’ve also removed the documentation previously provided in each download and consolidated it in to a new ArcGIS for Local Government Online Help system. This will make is much easier for you to find the documentation you need to deploy the ArcGIS for Local Government solution.

The next time you visit the Resource Center, you’ll notice we’ve also made some other changes. In particular, we have:

Released a set of new maps and apps:

  • Emergency Management COP 2.0
  • Tax Parcel Viewer 2.0
  • Fire Station Wall Map
  • Fire Run Book
  • Pre-Fire Planning
  • Community Addressing

Published a FINAL update to every local government map and app currently available for ArcGIS 10.0:

The updates include the latest local government information model, documentation, and updates to each application (new releases of each Add-In and the latest JavaScript and Flex APIs).  The updates also include several enhancements and address any bugs that have been submitted to date.

Retired the 9.3 maps and apps that were available on the Resource Center:

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause users still on the ArcGIS 9.3 platform, but our best practices and design ideas have evolved greatly since we published that work and the value of those contributions has diminished greatly.

We hope to see you at the User Conference this year.  We will have several new tech workshops and opportunities to engage the team; including an ArcGIS for You Industry Island and Special Interest Group.   If we miss you at one of the Tech Workshops, stop by the Industry Island or catch us on Twitter during the conference.

For those that can’t make it to San Diego, download the new ArcGIS 10.1 releases of the maps and apps and give us your feedback.  Feel free to contact us with any specific feedback, suggestions or questions you may have – your feedback drives Esri’s contributions to local government community.

We look forward to seeing (or hearing from) you soon.

    The links to the apps don’t seem to work…

    Can version 10 of the Tax Parcel Viewer be used with ArcGIS for Server 10.1?

    • No, but we are working on an update for the Tax Parcel Viewer for ArcGIS 10.1. The geoprocessing services used to produce the maps and reports are not supported on a 64bit ArcGIS Server implementation and we’re working on a solution that leverages 10.1 Print Services. But you can certainly stand up all the services and deploy the 10 app with the 10.1 map services pending the update.

        Thanks. Just to clarify, are you saying that Viewer 10.0 will mostly work with ArcGIS Server 10.1 (with the exception of any functionality that relies on deprecated ArcGIS Server 10.0 geoprocessing services) and once Viewer 10.1 is out everything will work? Also, is there a planned release date for Viewer 10.1?

    I found it easier when you sent out the layer package for distributing the model. Using the .xml and X-Ray there is no clean way to modify the CoordSYS. The CoordSYS can easily be defined when extracting it from a layer package.
