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.

On Wednesday September 19th, Apple will release a new version of their mobile operating system (iOS 6.0) ahead of launching new iPhone 5 devices. In certifying the final release seed of iOS 6.0 we have uncovered several problems with the existing ArcGIS application.
If your organization is currently using the ArcGIS application on iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch devices we encourage you to wait until we update to the ArcGIS application before upgrading devices to iOS 6. We are finalizing our changes now and anticipate submitting to Apple’s App Store shortly. Once approved you will receive an update notification on your device and we will send out notification with another blog post.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
