Rart at se at GIS er med i skydannelserne ... GIS står over for en genfødsel ...
Nice to see GIS being part of the Clouds ... GIS is made for the clouds ...
Arc2Earth Cloud Services - Wow, so much has changed since we first announced work on the Cloud last July. The intent and vision is the same but both technical hurdles and feature creep have slightly delayed our public beta. That being said, I am incredibly excited about this service and what it will enable our users to accomplish, I can’t wait to get it into their hands.
here’s a quick peak:
ArcMap Integration – create and edit your maps directly from ArcMap using some new A2E toolbars and windows. You can add “cloud layers” directly to your local map and then use the native editing tools in ArcMap to make changes. Every resource in your cloud instance is controlled by login and ACL lists so you can create groups users who all work remotely on the live data. There are also bulk upload/download tools so you can get a fresh copy of any layer anytime you need to perform heavy lifting GIS analysis.
KML – The KML engine used in the service can be applied to any resource that serves features. There are a couple of endpoints where KML can be returned but in the samples below, it is the "search" resource. All aspects of the KML (labeling, balloon templates, styling, height, filtering etc) are applied at runtime and streamed out. In general, Arc2Earth will always be able to create and serve static files but the focus in the Cloud is the dynamic creation of KML. What’s even better is that any of these endpoints support REST parameters that allow you to control this from the client. For instance, here are four different representations of the same proximity search: [...]
