Invitation to participate in an Esri software Usability Study at the User Conference

The Esri development team would like to invite you to participate in a moderated and recorded usability study of a new application for GIS professionals currently under development.

Who we’re looking for…

  • Existing ArcGIS for Desktop users
  • ArcGIS Online and App users interested in professional GIS software
  • Users of Esri Solutions (Local Government, Water Utilities, Land Records, 3D cities and campuses)
  • Users with varying degrees of experience who author maps,  analyze \ edit data, and manage GIS content

In total, we’re looking for 30 committed testers.

How it works…
Our sole intent and goal for this study is to assess the usability of our next generation professional desktop software; we want you to test our software, we’re not testing your computer, nor ArcGIS skills.

To consider you as a usability tester, we require that you are registered and approved by your employer to attend Esri User Conference and complete a pre-screening questionnaire—details below. Your time in the test lab is about 40 minutes.

Your test session will be recorded and observed by one or more members of the development team.

We thank you in advance for your time and look forward to meeting you in San Diego.

Place and Road Labels above Color Coded Maps

By Sooria Jeyaraman

How many times you have created a color-coded map from our list of close to 6000 variables (yes, I said 6000) and turned it completely opaque to see the colors come to life? There is one small problem with that. Once you set the transparency to 0% then you will not be able to see the roads or places below these colors. How many times have you wondered that it’ll be great if you have a way to look at these without losing your beautiful colors? If you are, you are not alone. Some of you brought this issue to our attention so, as usual, we decided to do something about it.
