In this video Art Haddad, Development Lead and Chief Architect of .NET Web technologies, and Rex Hansen, a product engineer on the ArcGIS Server team, talk about the new ArcGIS API for Microsoft Silverlight, which will be released next month at the ESRI Developer Summit.
“The most rewarding part about my job is the ability to work with cutting-edge technology, and this new product is no exception,” says Rex.
Product engineers at ESRI participate in all phases of software product development and release. They work closely with our development programmers to evaluate how well our software addresses key user needs; design new functions; and implement, document, and test new capabilities. Product engineers gain a clear understanding of GIS users’ needs and then interpret how ESRI software can address them.

As part of our weekly colloquium series, Dr. Paul Beier from the School of Forestry at Northern Arizona University, will give a presentation on “Cougars, Connectivity, and Missing Linkages: two decades of expanding vision and partnerships.”
During a study of cougars in rapidly urbanizing Southern California (1988-1992), he documented that dispersing cubs could find and use narrow corridors through urban areas, and he developed a population model that illustrated the importance of connectivity. Dr. Beier spent the next decade learning how to effectively translate this science into conservation action.
In collaboration with a number of agencies, GIS is being used to help acquire land easements, change zoning, restore habitat, and mitigate transportation projects. “This collaborative, science-based approach provides a template for creating a green infrastructure in even the most human-dominated landscapes,” states Dr. Beier.
The University of Redlands/ESRI Colloquium is a weekly lecture series for University of Redlands GIS graduate students and ESRI employees.
