A Water and Wastewater category has just been added to the
ArcGIS Ideas website. So the water,
wastewater and stormwater ArcGIS user community now has a formal place to
suggest products enhancements and enables the community to promote, rank
and comment on submitted idea.
What is the ArcGIS
The ArcGIS Ideas website is the place for ArcGIS users to
suggest product or industry specific enhancements to ArcGIS. When you post an Idea you can tag it with
descriptive terms and also choose up to 3 categories that your idea is relevant
to. The categories are both products and
industries. Water and Wastewater is now
available as an industry.
Tagging and categorizing your posted ideas are very
important because this allows other users to find your ideas, comment on them
and promote or demote them depending on whether they believe it’s a good idea
or not. As posted ideas get promoted they gain more points.
Water and Wastewater
In the past you’ve given us ideas and feedback on ArcGIS in
the water, wastewater and stormwater industries by telling us in person,
sending us emails, Twitter and posting on the discussion forums. Your feedback has driven the development of the Water Utility Templates as well as changes in ArcGIS. We’re glad to continue to receive ideas in
any way, but we want to urge you to submit your ideas to the ArcGIS
Ideas website going forward. Posting to
the ArcGIS Ideas website will engage the rest of the user community in refining
your idea and helping to promote its importance to Esri’s development and Water
Utility Resource Center teams.
So…. got an idea? Go
ahead and post it now: http://ideas.arcgis.com/
