Have you visited Wiki.GIS.com recently? The wiki’s main page has been redesigned! The new and improved face of Wiki.GIS showcases the best wiki pages, exclusive system design strategies content, new user help and GIS community events.
The redesigned main page highlights two sections for users who are new to wiki and new to GIS. The New to Wiki page briefly describes the purpose of the wiki and provides basic information about registering, creating pages, editing existing content and formatting using the wiki markup language.
The New to GIS page introduces the reader to the history, concepts and applications of geographic information systems. This page also includes a list of important organizations in the GIS community and links to GIS education.
The new main page also includes a GIS Trivia section, where you can test your knowledge of all things related to GIS, geography, cartography and more. In addition, upcoming events in the GIS community can be viewed on the GIS Events calendar. You can even add your own GIS events to the calendar.
Visit the new main page, check out the upcoming events, test yourself with the trivia and start browsing the wiki’s 3,500+ pages. The Wiki.GIS community is a great place to both learn and contribute to the body of GIS knowledge!
Blogging may be the hottest trend in cyberspace. Who doesn’t like to tell the world about favorite hobbies or travel adventures? But a blog can be a good resource for GIS users as well, as people often share their struggles and achievements while exploring spatial information in the blogosphere. Beside the many Esri blogs available, there are many other excellent GIS blogs providing relevant and timely information for the GIS world. Check the list below for some interesting reads!

We are pleased to announce that Service Pack 2 for ArcGIS 10.0 is now available to download.
This release contains performance improvements, maintenance fixes and includes all updates delivered since ArcGIS 10.0. The English version is available today and other language-specific packs will be available soon.
We recommend that customers using ArcGIS products at version 10.0 or 10.0 SP1 download and install this service pack at their earliest convenience to ensure the highest-quality experience when working with the software.
If you have any questions or run into issues with the installation, please contact Esri Technical Support at 1-888-377-4575, option 2, or visit the Support site. Users outside the United States should contact their local distributor for help.
Between now and the Esri User Conference 2011, the Support Services team will deploy a number of enhancements to the Esri Support site that will positively affect search, navigation and the look-and-feel of our Web site.
In the coming weeks, you’ll first notice the Support banner on Support knowledgebase, downloads, and software pages. Also, during this time, we had an opportunity to redesign and improve some pages, and enhance content delivery. An example is the GIS Dictionary, which is also coming out this month and will include graphics accompanying terms, the ability to search for a selected term and “identifiers”, such as CARTOGRAPHY & PHYSICS, denoting a specific use for the selected word.
While we will take all necessary steps to test these pages thoroughly before launch, some of these changes may impact your existing bookmarks. Please rest assured that our team is working diligently to ensure that these changes are a seamless experience for you. If you experience difficulty, would like to give us feedback or just have some good ideas for us, don’t hesitate to let us know by leaving a comment.
Keep an eye on this blog for more communication from us as we move ahead on these projects.
