This month we launched a series of ArcGIS for Local Government GitHub repositories to share source code for our web, desktop, and mobile applications. For those that aren’t familiar with GitHub, it is a code sharing and social networking site for the developer community.
We’ve always provided source code with our ArcGIS for Local Government maps and apps but the new GitHub presence will make it easier for the developer community to access the code base and participate in the development of Esri’s local government apps. As a team, we’ll also be using the GitHub repositories to manage our development efforts and look forward to collaborating with developers inside Esri and across the local government community using the GitHub platform.
We’ve started with more than twelve applications and should have the rest of our applications available via GitHub by early 2013. Even though we have this new channel for our developers, we will continue shipping supported versions of the ArcGIS for Local Government maps and apps via ArcGIS.com. We’ve got a lot planned for our next release, which is scheduled for March 2013 and to coincide with ArcGIS 10.1 SP2 (officially named 10.1.2).
Finally, we look forward to using GitHub as another way to collaborate on the development of great GIS applications for local governments across the globe.
The fall 2012 release of ArcGIS for Local Government is now available for download. Highlights include:
- The first release of the Executive Dashboard – A HTML 5 application used by local government leaders to proactively view critical metrics, identify trends, raise questions, and devise new management strategies.
- A new version of My Government Services - A HTML 5 application that helps residents locate a government facility and obtain information about curbside and drop-off services provided by a government agency.
- ArcGIS 10.1 releases of Water Utility Mobile Map, Public Safety COP and Tax Parcel Viewer.
- Support for ArcGIS 10.1 SP1
- Dramatic improvements to the Online Help system.
More information on this release can be found in the What’s New section of the help and in the release notes for each map and app.
