We are pleased to announce the 10.2 beta release of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Windows Store apps. The ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Windows Store apps provides a high performance mapping experience for modern apps on Windows 8 and Windows RT. The SDK is founded on an ArcGIS core runtime, built for the Windows Runtime, and provided for use by .NET developers. The beta release of the SDK includes support for building XAML/.NET Windows Store apps. Use the SDK to:
- Mash-up map, feature, and image services from ArcGIS Online and your own on-premise ArcGIS Server to create unique maps
- Search for features in a map using spatial or SQL criteria
- Sketch points, lines and polygons on the map
- Match addresses to locations (geocode) and locations to addresses (reverse-geocode)
- Generate routes and driving directions
- Use the geometry engine to perform geometric operations and compute spatial relationships between features
- Search and use items in ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS
Download the SDK from the Esri Beta Community. To start, you’ll need an Esri Global account, registered with the Beta Community. Once registered, fill out a brief survey to be accepted into the beta program. Once in the program, click on the Software Downloads link under the Project Resources section (bottom of the table of contents), download the VSIX file and install. Visual Studio 2012 on Windows 8 is required.

We recently deployed additional community contributions to the World Topographic Map for several areas in the United States. Community contributions also were added to the World Imagery map (World Imagery release details).
The March 2013 release of ArcGIS Online included a new Web App Template called the Parcel Viewer. This app allows you to search for a parcel by a number of fields, select a result and show it’s location on the map with a popup. The web app template exposes a series of parameters that allow you to change the search layer, the fields to be searched, and the UI of the application. By changing these parameters, you can configure the app to search any feature service layer you include in the webmap. So we can now use this to find a hydrant, find a valve, find a customer, etc. The possibilities are endless. Here is an example of the app configured to find a hydrant.
If you want to try this out yourself, here is a blog from the Local Government team that walks you through setting up the app.
