Aims list of additional 9 3 desktop enhancements l.jpg

AIMS List of Additional 9.3 Desktop Enhancements

  • ArcGIS Online

  • Layer Files

  • Zoom to Layer

  • Improved Viewer Windows

  • PDF Export

  • New Options

  • Layer2KML and Map2KML

  • Better Geoprocessing Tool Errors

  • Enhanced Geocoding Interface


Editing enhancements l.jpg

Editing Enhancements

  • Version Changes Viewer

  • Merge Geometry

  • Cut Polygons

  • Keyboard Shortcuts


Cad and gis interoperability and extensions l.jpg

CAD and GIS, Interoperability and Extensions

  • Data Interoperability Extension

    • Use in Arc Map, Arc Catalog, Arc Server

    • Safe Software capabilities built to work in Arc GIS platform

    • Improved and more capabilities at 9.3

      • Free support for .gml and .wfm formats

    • Quick import or Quick Export (Easy way to transform data)

    • Full access to FME Workbench to manipulate data created within toolbox as a Spatial ETL Tool

    • Read/Write many formats and manipulate data though FME transformers

    • Automation done by export to python scripting

    • Cost is same as other ESRI extension and is much less expensive than full version of Safe Software FME

    • http://www.esri.com/software/arcgis/extensions/datainteroperability/index.html


Cad and gis interoperability and extensions7 l.jpg

CAD and GIS, Interoperability and Extensions

  • ArcGIS for AutoCAD Plug-In

    • New release by end of 2008

    • Same capabilities to read Arc GIS Server Services but with better enhancements and performance

      • Security

      • Better rendering of Service

    • Additions to Plug-In

      • Improvement to Import and Export to CAD tools

      • New tool to allow you see attributes from GIS in CAD through MSD tool

      • Creation of “Feature Classes” with in AutoCAD and assign what layers to assign to feature class

      • Creation of attributes for each feature class

        • These two allow you to import a new feature type when reading CAD files and attributes will be assigned to each feature

      • CAD users will be creating GIS data with out even knowing it

      • By importing Server services, will allow the user to create data in correct real world location

      • Going back and forth between GIS and CAD users will be simpler


9 3 upgrade and compatibility l.jpg

9.3 Upgrade and Compatibility


9 3 upgrade and compatibility9 l.jpg

9.3 Upgrade and Compatibility

  • 9.3 Requires you to upgrade the “floating” license manager

  • 9.3 is Vista supported

  • 9.2 SP 3 introduced 64bit support

  • ArcGIS 9.2 SP 5 compatible with ArcGIS 9.3 GeoDatabase (Application Connection)


9 3 upgrade and compatibility10 l.jpg

9.3 Upgrade and Compatibility

  • GeoDatabase access not limited to specific version at 9.3 for SDE Direct Connect

    • GDBDirectConnect (Located on DVD)


Aims upgrade schedule l.jpg

AIMS Upgrade Schedule

  • ArcIMS – Done (CAMA/Orion)

  • ArcGIS Desktop testing complete – upgrade anytime

  • ArcGIS Server - early September

  • ArcSDE - mid to late September?

    • More dependent on SQL2008 upgrade

    • ArcSDE 9.3 now has a native 64bit version for Windows


Aims infrastructure upgrade l.jpg

AIMS Infrastructure Upgrade

  • Late 4th Quarter 2008

    • Replace existing AIMS data server hardware (in place since May 2004)

      • Upgrade existing Operating System Windows 2000 to ?

      • Upgrade existing Database Software SQL2000 to SQL2008


Arcgis server l.jpg

ArcGIS Server

  • OMG The Boss Needs It NOW!

    • Your glorious boss has asked for a map today or you’re fired. What do you do?


Slide14 l.jpg

  • Go check AIMS of course

    • The IMS? Sorry, can’t add your data

    • DDR? The jerk didn’t buy you any storage space, remember???

    • ArcServer and the REST API?

      • Ding ding ding ding

      • Do a generic find

      • Do a specific query


Slide15 l.jpg

  • Some other interesting things….

    • Flex API

      • A cool example

    • New ADF Template

    • Caching Improvements

      • 1 Load preset schemas

      • 2 Only cache some areas

      • 3 Don’t allow local


The road ahead 9 3 support for geometry geography data types in sql server 2008 l.jpg

The Road Ahead9.3 Support for Geometry & Geography data types in SQL Server 2008

SQL Server 2008 - RTM

Instead of storing coordinates in the Points field in the f table (image data type), store coordinates in the business table using a field with either a Geometry (planar/flat earth) or Geography (ellipsoid/round earth) data type


The road ahead 9 3 support for geometry geography data types in sql server 2008 cont l.jpg

The Road Ahead9.3 Support for Geometry & Geography data types in SQL Server 2008 (cont)

Why is this so exciting?

~80 Spatial Functions (SQL Spatial Operators)

“Select by location” and gp can be done in SQL

e.g., Definition Query: All states that intersect I-70

STIntersects, STTouches, STCrosses, STWithin, STBuffer, STUnion, …

Our SDE Views can now be true spatial views!


Slide18 l.jpg

Currently, using only SQL (without GP),

this is as close to a “Spatial View” as one can get …


Slide19 l.jpg

In the future …

WHERE clause

using STIntersects


The road ahead 9 3 support for geometry geography data types in sql server 2008 cont20 l.jpg

The Road Ahead9.3 Support for Geometry & Geography data types in SQL Server 2008 (cont)

Editing simple features with SQL

Editing non-versioned FCs straightforward

Must use multi-versioned views to edit Versioned FCs


The road ahead 9 3 service packs l.jpg

The Road Ahead9.3 Service Packs

Quarterly

9.3 SP1 – Q4 2008

9.3 SP2 – Q1 2001

Cumulative (e.g., SP2 includes SP1)

SPs will linclude Bug Fixes & New Functionality

Improved performance of WebADF at 9.3

Dynamic panning of cached services

Faster blending of cached and dynamic services

Was there more coming at SP2?


The road ahead 9 4 no promises no timetable l.jpg

The Road Ahead9.4 – No Promises & No Timetable

Key Themes: Simplify & Streamline Workflows, Share Knowledge

“Iterative and Innovative”

make existing things better, maintain compatibility, better user experience

new workflow, new science, expansive across the Web

Offload complex analysis to background

Make TOC “shy away”

Warnings when publishing a map service with errors

Remove unnecessary redraws

Common 3D navigation tools across all products

Editing simplification

Overhaul metadata editing

Personal GDB updated to Access 2007

Improved SQL query functionality in file GDB

Ability to “borrow” a license

No longer supported: Windows 2000, VB 6, perhaps VS 2005, CAD Client, VBA is slowly dying
