We are pleased to announce the release of Esri Maps for SharePoint 3.0.
Esri Maps for SharePoint supports Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and 2013 and offers interactive and configurable mapping components that can give you a geospatial view of your organization’s data. The ability to visualize and interact with data through maps can be extraordinarily beneficial, as it has the power to reveal larger patterns and trends that can lead to better insights and more informed decisions.
Key new features of Esri Maps for SharePoint 3.0 include the following:
Tight integration with the ArcGIS platform
The ArcGIS platform is Esri’s enterprise sharing and collaboration platform and is available as a secure Esri-hosted solution (ArcGIS Online) or on-premises solution (Portal for ArcGIS). It brings numerous benefits to Esri’s SharePoint mapping offering including the ability to leverage new global geocoding, routing, and geographic data enrichment services and; the ability to securely publish and share your business data as map layers and as fully-configured interactive maps to members of your organization or to anyone else you want, whether or not they have access to SharePoint.
New options for creating maps with your external business data
Esri Maps for SharePoint 3.0 offers even more ways to map, visualize, analyze, and share your organization’s business data with support for connecting to, map-enabling, and enriching your external data warehouse through SharePoint Business Connectivity Services (BCS) connections to your SQL Server tables.
New ways to interact with your mapped business data and create map-enabled dashboards within SharePoint
With new support for web part connections between the Esri Maps Web Part and SharePoint List Web Parts, you have even more options to interactively select, filter, and work with your mapped business data.
More frequent updates
Major updates and enhancements to Esri Maps for SharePoint, including the ability to access and leverage newer content and services delivered through its tight integration with the ArcGIS platform, will be available to organizations and users in three major releases per year.
