ArcGIS app available in the Windows Store!

The ArcGIS app now available in the Windows Store provides a preview of features that integrate the new touch-centric view of Windows 8 and Windows RT with the ArcGIS Online mapping platform.  With the app you can explore a gallery of compelling maps that showcase relevant demographic, historical, and environmental topics.  Over time, maps will be added to the gallery to enhance the application experience.

Download ArcGIS from the Windows Store

Use the app to:

  • View and search a preset gallery of featured maps
  • Learn about map contents
  • Navigate a map with your fingertips
  • Tap to discover information in the map and view results
  • Use bookmarks to go to areas of interest
  • Measure areas and distances
  • Change visibility and opacity of layers
  • Change basemaps
  • Search for places within the map view
  • Pin a map to the Start screen
  • Print a map

As a preview, this app demonstrates our commitment to create products that will enable our user community to employ solutions on Windows 8, Windows RT, and Windows Runtime (WinRT) platforms in the future.   Please visit our site on the ArcGIS Resource Center and feel free to provide feedback or ask questions about the app.

    Congratulations on the application but I’m more interested in accessing our own map services similar to what is found in the iOS app. Is this capability planned?
