November 22nd 1963. John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald while in Dallas, Texas. It’s been 50 years since the cataclysmic event in Dealey Plaza and the fascination, conspiracies and consistent speculation on what happened and why have been ever-present in the intervening years.
Here, we present JFinteraKtive, an interactive 3D Web Scene of the shocking moments that changed the world we live in.
We are pleased to announce the release of the 3D GIS landing page on esri.com. Here you can find in one location: why 3D is important for GIS professionals, an overview of the 3D strengths of the ArcGIS system videos … Continue reading

It’s been a little while since our last post on GIS and sports analytics. This week we thought we would have some fun and celebrate Wimbledon by creating a simple visualization using ArcScene and the new CityEngine Web Viewer.
The Esri development team would like to invite you to participate in a moderated and recorded usability study of a new application for GIS professionals currently under development.
Who we’re looking for…
- Existing ArcGIS for Desktop users
- ArcGIS Online and App users interested in professional GIS software
- Users of Esri Solutions (Local Government, Water Utilities, Land Records, 3D cities and campuses)
- Users with varying degrees of experience who author maps, analyze \ edit data, and manage GIS content
In total, we’re looking for 30 committed testers.
How it works…
Our sole intent and goal for this study is to assess the usability of our next generation professional desktop software; we want you to test our software, we’re not testing your computer, nor ArcGIS skills.
To consider you as a usability tester, we require that you are registered and approved by your employer to attend Esri User Conference and complete a pre-screening questionnaire—details below. Your time in the test lab is about 40 minutes.
Your test session will be recorded and observed by one or more members of the development team.
We thank you in advance for your time and look forward to meeting you in San Diego.
Among the most important activities at the Esri Oceans Summit (November 7–8, 2012; see prior blog post 1 and prior prior blog post 2) were the breakout groups, where participants were called upon to identify major barriers to the use … Continue reading
