The new ArcGIS Online site went public beta earlier today, and the latest post on the ArcGIS Online blog provides a great introduction to using and leveraging the site, including some specific examples using the soon-to-be released new version of ArcGIS Explorer.
Shown below is ArcGIS Explorer with a layer package that was published by ESRI and discovered and accessed from ArcGIS Online.
Note that shared resources you will find on ArcGIS Online, such as layer packages, layer files, add-ins, Explorer layers, and more will open in ArcGIS Explorer 900 only and are not intended to be used with ArcGIS Explorer 500.
At 9.4, ArcGIS introduces new functionality called “query layers” to allow users to directly access spatial type data stored in a database that is not a geodatabase. Query layers allow users to use a SQL query to access spatial type data and create a new (read-only) layer in ArcMap. This layer will allow users to map, query, and analyze data from spatially enabled databases such as SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, DB2, or Informix without registering the spatial information in a geodatabase or installing and configuring ArcSDE.Additionally, geodatabase users who store their spatial information in spatial types can use this functionality to work with their data using complex SQL queries.

This past week two geospatial practitioners were cited for their good work by the FBI. What did they do? At the request of the Bureau, they went online and found some Digital Raster Graphics, scanned quad maps, printed them and gave them to agents working in their area. Is this how agents and others in the federal government, or even citizens, should get their geographic data? What does this scenario reveal about the FBI? The state of our geospatial infrastructure? The value of the geospatial workforce? [...]
These sites succeed by taking full advantage of the Internet. "New forms of technology start by imitating older forms and then evolve into their true forms," said Dorsey.
As an example, she pointed to theBenz Patent Motorwagen of 1886which looks more like a carriage than a modern day car. Even the famous Ford Model T required a hand crank to start. "The Austin 7 RK Saloon of 1928 was a car that you or I could start." She meant that in the Austin 7, the controls were located where a modern driver would expect them to be.
The first Web page appeared in 1991. In 1992 it still looked like a piece of paper.
"We've been working on the Web for ten years," said Dorsey. "It took the car 50 years to find its true form. The online experience has yet to find its true form."

Cuil continually strives to bring the information you are looking for from the depths of the Internet to the first search results page. One of our goals is to extract structure from the unstructured web and present it to you in an informative, visually appealing and accessible way. Today, we announce the launch of our newest feature in this direction — Maplines.
You might be thinking, “What in the world is a Mapline?” Just as our Timelines show a concept across time, our Maplines show a concept across a map.
A search for bird watching results in a map with points across the world which relate to bird watching. Let’s look at some of them:
We make it easy to explore the concept you searched for and how it relates to a particular location on the map—hovering your mouse over a pin will result in a pop-up with a longer description and a link to search for related pages.
Here are some queries that result in Maplines:
We hope our data mining experiments and features are helping you find the information you are looking for and explore areas of interest in a more visual way. As always, we’d love to hear from you.
|From now on, GIM International is your guide for GIS software. On this website, you find a guide to GIS software that is available to download for free. You find it in the link 'Downloads' in the left hand navigation bar of the website.|
This part of the website offers an overview of, and access to, free GIS software. Often these versions are either open source software, trial versions or viewers.
