By Daniel Brecht, Contributing Writer
Esri, a company that offers the latest advances in geospatial technology, now has ArcGIS 10.1 available. It is the latest release of a suite of software products with improvements for geospatial content generation, collaboration and sharing of interactive maps.
ArcGIS is a Geographic Information System (GIS) that supports all relevant GIS and IT standards and integrates desktops and servers, plus mobile and Web applications. The system is designed to capture and perform geospatial analysis of geographical data; it offers a platform for viewing and disseminating results and can be essential when used for planning and making informed high-level decisions.
ArcGIS 10.1 is an easy-to-use GIS that allows end users to explore and use maps as well as manage, edit and even update the geographic information. It is an effective solution to the integration, visualization and analysis of geospatial information.
Users can expect the ability to visualize accurate GIS data in an intuitive map-based format; share spatial information and maps, imagery, geodatabases and analysis tools within the ArcGIS system; and collaborate with others at anytime, anywhere, by simply publishing any maps and data to the cloud.
This will then allow end users to have access to the geographic information and be able to browse maps and apps published by others using the ArcGIS system.
The release of ArcGIS 10.1 has made it simpler for users to put mapping and geospatial analytics into the hands of more people – within and beyond an individual organization. All those who work in a GIS business can benefit from using ArcGIS 10.1.
This GIS product makes data available to those who need it – ranging from executives to technical staff, to field workers – and seek up-to-date geographic information, or simply want to understand the changing world around them.
