ArcGIS is a great way to discover and use maps. Maps come to life in ArcGIS. Tap the map, or use your current location and discover information about what you see.

Create and share a map. Extend the reach of ArcGIS into the field, and improve the accuracy and currency of your spatial data. Create and share maps for data collection in two steps.
You can query the map, search and find interesting information, measure distances and areas of interest, and share maps with others. Find community hosted maps from ArcGIS Online - Esri's online GIS. Alternatively, you can use the authoring tools on ArcGIS.com to create maps that can be used in ArcGIS. Features: - Navigate map galleries in just a few taps using the Map Hub - Access your GIS data - Display and zoom to the current location - Data collection and editing - Perform keyword searches and get access to relevant information More. I'm not sure why this has been given negative reviews for not givng POI's or directions as this is not what this application is for. This app is for people who know how to use maps beyond what is shown in your typical in-car navigation system.
That being said this is an outstanding app and in my opinion has the largest amount of useful data of any app I have seen so far. There are base maps ranging from roads to projected thunderstorm activity. Use your brain and see what you can do/find with this app. You may be surprised!!

Other Esri products included, a for developers, and as a.
The various products had branched out into multiple and did not integrate well with one another. In January 1997, Esri decided to revamp its GIS software platform, creating a single integrated software architecture. ArcMap 8.0 [ ] In late 1999, Esri released ArcMap 8.0, which ran on the.
ArcGIS combined the visual user-interface aspect of GIS 3.x interface with some of the power from the Arc/INFO version 7.2 workstation. This pairing resulted in a new software suite called ArcGIS including the command-line ArcInfo workstation (v8.0) and a new graphical user interface application called (v8.0). This ArcMAP incorporating some of the functionality of ArcInfo with a more intuitive, as well as a called ArcCatalog (v8.0). The release of the ArcMap constituted a major change in Esri's software offerings, aligning all their client and server products under one software architecture known as ArcGIS, developed using standards. While the interface and names of ArcMap 8.0 are similar to later versions of ArcGIS Desktop, they are different products. ArcGIS 8.1 replaced ArcMap 8.0 in the product line but was not an update to it.
ArcGIS Desktop 8.1 to 8.3 [ ] ArcGIS 8.1 was unveiled at the in 2000. ArcGIS 8.1 was officially released on April 24, 2001. Microsoft Spreadsheet Software. This new application included three extensions: 3D Analyst, Spatial Analyst, and GeoStatistical Analyst. These three extension had become very powerful and popular in ArcView GIS 3.x product line.
ArcGIS 8.1 also added the ability to access data online, directly from the Geography Network site or other map services. ArcGIS 8.3 was introduced in 2002, adding to geodatabases, which was a feature originally available only with ArcInfo coverages. One major difference is the available to customize or extend the software to suit particular user needs. In the transition to ArcGIS, Esri dropped support of its application-specific scripting languages, Avenue and the ARC Macro Language (AML), in favour of scripting and open access to ArcGIS components using the Microsoft standards. ArcGIS is designed to store data in a proprietary RDBMS format, known as. ArcGIS 8.x introduced other new features, including on-the-fly, and annotation in the database.
ArcGIS 9.x [ ] ArcGIS 9 was released in May 2004, which included ArcGIS Server and ArcGIS Engine for developers. The ArcGIS 9 release includes a geoprocessing environment that allows execution of traditional GIS processing tools (such as clipping, overlay, and spatial analysis) interactively or from any scripting language that supports standards. Although the most popular of these is, others have been used, especially and.
ArcGIS 9 includes a visual programming environment, similar to 's Model Maker (released in 1994, v8.0.2). The Esri version is called ModelBuilder and as does the version allows users to graphically link geoprocessing tools into new tools called models. These models can be executed directly or exported to scripting languages which can then execute in batch mode (launched from a command line), or they can undergo further editing to add branching or looping.
On June 26, 2008, Esri released ArcGIS 9.3. The new version of ArcGIS Desktop has new modeling tools and geostatistical error tracking features, while ArcGIS Server has improved performance, and support for role-based security.
