In recent years, the Internet and the advancement of technology have enabled a wider audience to get access to geospatial information which in turn creates a demand for accessing and using spatial analysis over the web. You can provide these types of applications using geoprocessing services authored using ArcGIS for Desktop and published with ArcGIS for Server. The new Esri training seminar “Sharing Analysis Workflows on the Web Using Geoprocessing Services” describes how to use ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop and Server to author and publish geoprocessing services and use them in web applications.

For the second year in a row, Esri won in the Mapping and GIS Components category of Visual StudioMagazine’s (VSM’s) Readers Choice Awards for its ArcGIS API for Microsoft Silverlight/Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). In addition, Esri received merit awards for ArcGIS for Desktop and ArcGIS for SharePoint.
Esri created the ArcGIS API for Microsoft Silverlight/WPF for developers who want to create web-based mapping applications quickly and easily with minimal coding. Many governments and businesses use the API because it provides an intuitive framework for creating GIS web applications, such as data portals and interactive map viewers, and combines multiple technologies into a single development platform. Esri received the same recognition for the API in the 2010 VSM Readers Choice Awards.
This is the first year Esri received merit for ArcGIS for Desktop in the GIS and Components category. ArcGIS for Desktop is a complete system for managing, analyzing, and serving maps and geographic information. Esri also won its first merit award in the SharePoint Tools and Components category for ArcGIS for SharePoint, an out-of-the-box software solution that helps users quickly create, display, and share tabular information on dynamic interactive maps within SharePoint.
“It is gratifying to see our mapping tools being widely adopted and used by the developer community,” says Jack Dangermond, Esri president.
The VSM Readers Choice Awards are based on the responses of hundreds of select VSM subscribers. The online ballot, which was compiled by the editors of VSM, included more than 400 products.
“We’re honored to have been recognized by the Visual Studio Magazine community for the second year in a row,” says Art Haddad, lead software architect at Esri. “It’s great to be recognized for ArcGIS API for Microsoft Silverlight/WPF and especially to see the complete ArcGIS system receive meritorious recognition in the GIS and Components category.”
The winners are highlighted in the November issue of Visual Studio Magazine. Visit Visual Studio Magazine to see the full list of award recipients.
