A new ESRI app was released this week. Explorer for ArcGIS compliments the existing apps by focusing on using maps as a communication tool. The initial release is for iOS but the Android and Mac version are in development.
Esri Maps for Office provides simple tools for looking at patterns within your data, especially high volume data due to the clustering option. A recent addition to the product makes it easy to create comparison maps using filtering and clustering.
Every week new schools sign up to the Esri UK ArcGIS for Schools Programme and we are starting to see some great results. The immediacy that ArcGIS Online affords along with its simplicity has allowed some of our schools to produce maps in minutes as a response to recent world events.
A recent upgrade to the ArcGIS Online Basemaps added support for re-sampling at scales larger than the map has data for (ie when zoomed in beyond the dats). This allows the client application to re-sample the closest available scale and display that, instead of a 'Map data not available' image.
