We are excited to announce the 10.2.2 beta release of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET! This SDK enables developers to build rich, high performance GIS applications for Windows PCs, tablets, and phones. It includes three APIs that support building .NET apps for Windows Desktop, Windows Store, and Windows Phone. The APIs share a common design and structure, which encourages sharing implementation logic across Windows platforms. Highlights of the SDK include:
- Combine map, feature, and image services from ArcGIS Online and your own on-premises ArcGIS Server to create unique maps
- Search and select features and graphics in a map using spatial or SQL criteria
- Draw and edit points, lines and polygons on the map
- Work offline with local basemaps and data
- Edit features locally and sync with feature services
- Geocode addresses with a locator on your device
- Use a local network dataset to generate routes and driving directions
- Perform advanced geometric operations (such as project, buffer and intersect) with a local geometry engine
- Search and use items in ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS
- MVVM friendly API design

Esri’s LAS Optimizer has been updated to include support for parallel decompression. The initial version supported parallel processing when going from LAS to Optimized LAS, but the other direction, going back to LAS, was single threaded. It’s now parallel in both directions. This significantly decreases the time it takes to decompress the files and is worth the update.
A new section entitled ‘The benefit of indexing and rearrangement’ has been added to Evaluating LAS Optimizer. This provides more information about how you can benefit from using Esri’s new Optimized LAS format for your lidar data.
Esri’s content landscape has expanded tremendously. Through sharing content in hosted cloud services, access to a suite of basemaps and topics that describe earth, people, life and urban systems are available to everyone. Esri is building a global community; it … Continue reading
