This marks the start of a quarterly release schedule for the ArcGIS for Local Government solution. And we have done several things to make it easier for you to download and configure the solution in your organization. Namely, we’ve synchronized the content in each map or app download. This will ensure you receive a consistent representation of the information model and each application as you begin to leverage several of the maps and apps in your organization. We’ve also removed the documentation previously provided in each download and consolidated it in to a new ArcGIS for Local Government Online Help system. This will make is much easier for you to find the documentation you need to deploy the ArcGIS for Local Government solution.
The next time you visit the Resource Center, you’ll notice we’ve also made some other changes. In particular, we have:
Released a set of new maps and apps:
- Emergency Management COP 2.0
- Tax Parcel Viewer 2.0
- Fire Station Wall Map
- Fire Run Book
- Pre-Fire Planning
- Community Addressing
Published a FINAL update to every local government map and app currently available for ArcGIS 10.0:
Retired the 9.3 maps and apps that were available on the Resource Center:
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause users still on the ArcGIS 9.3 platform, but our best practices and design ideas have evolved greatly since we published that work and the value of those contributions has diminished greatly.
We hope to see you at the User Conference this year. We will have several new tech workshops and opportunities to engage the team; including an ArcGIS for You Industry Island and Special Interest Group. If we miss you at one of the Tech Workshops, stop by the Industry Island or catch us on Twitter during the conference.
For those that can’t make it to San Diego, download the new ArcGIS 10.1 releases of the maps and apps and give us your feedback. Feel free to contact us with any specific feedback, suggestions or questions you may have – your feedback drives Esri’s contributions to local government community.
We look forward to seeing (or hearing from) you soon.
