Using Esri Maps for Office, you can make interactive, dynamic maps that add geographic content to your PowerPoint presentations.
Many of you may have heard of Esri Maps for Office. It lets you do really cool things with data without needing to fire up GIS software like ArcGIS for Desktop or ArcGIS Online. In fact, all that you need to start making gorgeous and insightful maps is something you probably already have installed on your computer – Microsoft Excel. If you use PowerPoint, even better!
There’s a lot already documented on how you can turn boring tabular data in Excel into visually compelling heat maps, cluster maps, hot spot analyses, and more. But what not many people know is that you can also add extra firepower to your PowerPoint presentations using Esri Maps for Office.
The Esri Development Team invites you to participate in a moderated and recorded Usability Study of 3 specific areas of ArcGIS Pro: Geodatabase Management, specifically schema design and data modeling, Map Layout, and 3D Editing.
Who we’re looking for:
- Existing ArcGIS for Desktop or current ArcGIS Pro users in the above mentioned areas
- Users of Esri Solutions (Local Government, Water Utilities, Land Records, Defense, Forestry, Hydrology)
- Users with varying degrees of experience who set up geodatabase schemas and model data, edit data, and design map layouts
In total, we’re looking for 30 testers.
How it works:
Our goal for this study is to assess the usability of the map layout, the 3D editing, and the schema design and data modeling functionalities of ArcGIS Pro; we want you to test our software, we’re not testing your ArcGIS skills.
To consider you as a usability tester, we require that you are registered and approved by your employer to attend the 2015 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.
