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.
Checkout these great resources from Paul Doherty on the Esri Public Safety team. This article is especially relevant to telecommunications providers whose services are impacted by these events, in addition to being a key asset in the recovery and emergency operations efforts. There are some great resources in here to help keep your organization informed of events approaching and as they happen. Don’t wait till it happens, its too late, be prepared!
With no more introduction required… to Pauls great article (thanks for compiling)…. http://blogs.esri.com/esri/arcgis/2013/06/04/get-ready-2013-atlantic-hurricane-season-is-underway/
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.
We are proud to announce the release and general availability of ArcGIS for Windows Mobile 3.1 from the Esri Customer Care Portal. Once you log in to the Customer Care portal, tap Software Downloads and look for ArcGIS for Windows Mobile product line.
The 3.1 release builds upon the success of 3.0 with minor software enhancements and quality improvements. However, the exciting news with 3.1 is our joint release of ArcGIS for Windows Mobile and Trimble® PositionsTM Software Suite by Trimble®. Continue reading
ArcGIS for Windows Mobile 3.0 opens the door to exciting new opportunities for you to leverage Mobile GIS and streamline your field operational needs. The ArcGIS application, available on rugged handheld devices, is being used today for mapping assets with precision and ease.
With the 3.0 release we have augmented the ArcGIS application with a new task that can be used to map underground assets. Using the Underground Collection Task you can connect your mobile device to a RadioDetection RD8000 Line Locator and accurately map the location and depth of buried pipe and cable.
This Resource Center is getting a facelift and a fresh new look. We’re updating the color and styling of the website, adding tutorials for you to try ArcGIS, improving the gallery and video experiences, and much more.
We’ve been testing the website improvements as part of ArcGIS 10.1 Beta and Prerelease and now, in conjunction with its release, we’re ready to share the website improvements with everyone.
Click here to preview what’s coming. Then, on the evening of 6/12/12, the improvements will be applied to this website: http://resources.arcgis.com. All your bookmarks and page share will continue to work; some pages will just look a little different, and there will be lots of great new content.
In this entry I want to take a closer look at a previous posting on using mosaic datasets for managing RF data in the wireless service provider world. In that article I talked about how mosaics can be very effective for storing larger raster datasets and also for seamlessly recombining them using mosaic operators. These mosaic operators allow users to get the correct best server view of the network across multiple markets and view the raster data as if it were one seamless dataset.
In this article we’ll take a closer look at the details of using these same structures and mechanisms as the enabler for performing outage analysis.
The release of 10.1 is closing in with many of you already in possession of the prerelease version of the software. For those of you using the Telecom Data Model and Fiber Editing Tools you are probably wondering if these will be updated? Well the answer is yes, and for those of you anxious to test things out we are releasing an early beta of the tools running on 10.1 Prerelease.
The 10.1 release of the tools adds some significant changes and improvements:
- Fiber cable configurations are now user editable via an XML file. This allows you to specify any size and configuration of cable. The old drop downs for Buffer Tube and Strand counts are gone. A new GUI is available to allow easy selection of cable configuration.
We just posted the beta of the 10.1 Telecommunications Resource Center.
The new look and feel will hopefully make it easier to find relevant GIS for Telecommunications content that can help solve your business problems. The site incorporates the latest in social media and blogs to help keep you up to date on Esri and partner offerings.
