00:01My name's Damian Spangrud. I'm the product manager for ArcGIS here at Esri, which is still hard for me to say.
00:08I'm joined by a number of my colleagues scattered throughout, other product managers, associates who work with me…
00:15…who will also be here to answer some questions as we go through.
00:21Okay. First off, let's talk a little bit about what this session is.
00:24This is an overview session.
00:27I cover bits in Desktop, bits in Server, bits in Mobile, bits in Online, across the whole system to tell you what's coming in 10.1.
00:37If you're looking for the devil of detail sessions, this isn't it.
00:42There's a detailed Desktop session following this. There was a Server one repeated this morning.
00:48There's some additional sessions.
00:49If you look online in Road Ahead, search for road ahead or search for 10.1, you'll find there's a number of demo theaters…
00:56…and 20-minute sessions as well that cover very detailed aspect of what's coming in 10.1.
01:02But this will give you enough to be dangerous.
01:06Okay. Logistics, cell phones, personal communicators, tricorders, whatever you got, just turn them to mute.
01:14I know some of you really cannot…so you go into withdrawal if you're not checking e-mail every five minutes, that's okay.
01:22I know we have some social networking folks sitting over there on the floor recharging his batteries, Greg.
01:30It's fine. Keep going. Just turn them to mute so we don't have to hear the pop song ring tone that you have.
01:37I also know…I recognize a few faces from who were turned away from the first time we gave this session.
01:43Sorry about that. We really messed up and had it in the room next door here that fits a hundred people…
01:48…and then we told you to go to the geolounge to watch it, and it didn't work.
01:52We really apologize for that. This is the repeat. There will be another repeat of this session on Friday morning.
02:01I want to say right now, for any session you attend this week, please fill out the online survey.
02:07It really helps us to plan what sessions to give and what presenters to assign to those sessions.
02:13We use this information a lot, and as one of the people coordinating the sessions, I really use it.
02:18So, I'm going to beg you not only to fill it out for me, because I always want feedback to how to improve…
02:23…but also for any other sessions you attend.
02:26Okay, with that, let's get started.
02:28First, before we get to 10.1, I want to talk a little bit about some of the trends that are actually driving us and resulting in 10.1.
02:39Now first off, let's talk a little bit about, you know, where GIS has come from.
02:44For some of us, this evolution has happened in years; some of us this evolution has happened in weeks.
02:52Fundamentally, everybody starts using GIS primarily on the desktop.
02:58And then a few people start using it, and they realize they have to share their information, and they start working together.
03:05Then they actually realize that their business is sort of running on this thing…
03:09…and they realize they have to treat it like a different part of their enterprise…
03:12…backups, recovery, enterprise systems, communications, data storage, so that you can start to work together.
03:19But once you're in the enterprise, you actually need to be able to integrate to everything else.
03:24And over the years, there's been different technologies. The current mantra is on web service or services-oriented architecture.
03:31Before that, it was SQL. Before that it was RPC. Before that it was DDE.
03:36Who remembers DDE?
03:38Okay, we're all old.
03:42Before that was stuff that I don't remember.
03:44But it's about working together in that enterprise.
03:48Once you're in the enterprise, nowadays, that also means that you have to support…
03:52…access to the enterprise information on a mobile device.
03:57And fundamentally also means that you're starting to leverage cloud resources.
04:02Everybody in here uses cloud resources right now.
04:06You've all done a search online, right?
04:10That's using the cloud.
04:12You don't have to make the cloud really complex to understand it.
04:15You ask the web to do something for you. You don't know which server gave you the answer. That's the cloud.
04:20Increasingly, once you reach the enterprise stage and you're pushing to mobile devices…
04:24…you're starting to leverage pieces of the infrastructure you no longer own.
04:30And the big trend we're seeing is this idea of lightweight, that you don't need a full-scale rich desktop app…
04:37…for everybody in the organization who wants to put dots on a map.
04:41You actually don't need it for a lot of things.
04:43You can give them a lightweight application.
04:46How many people use some sort of web mail, Yahoo mail, G-mail, whatever?
04:52How many of you read the instruction manual?
04:56That's the notion of a web app.
04:59A well-designed web application does not have a manual.
05:02You should be able to figure out how to use it intuitively.
05:06Obviously, that's not a do-everything application. It's very focused.
05:11What's been interesting in this evolution of GIS is, nothing's gone away.
05:19We've heard from the IT pundits that desktop as a platform for everything has been dead…I don't know.
05:24Every three years it seems like they tell us desktop's dead.
05:28Desktop's still not dead, but the role of desktop has fundamentally changed over the years, especially in the GIS world.
05:35It's moved from your desktops pretty much self-supporting each other…
05:39…to your desktops are actually the key for passing information through this entire structure.
05:44That's what you folks as GIS professionals are authoring the authoritative information analysis…
05:50…that's starting to be leveraged everywhere else.
05:54So the use over time has really been augmented, not replaced, and we continue to see that.
05:59I don't know what the next bubble is in this diagram, but I know there will be one.
06:06These rich web applications I talked about, you know, they're commonplace.
06:10We use them in all of our parts of our both professional and personal lives.
06:15And increasingly, we're starting to see them as part of our GIS professional lives, being able to pull this information together.
06:22They're what many of your constituents expect you to deliver.
06:26They're used to using these highly interactive, very intuitive applications right now.
06:31They just want your GIS stuff inside of it.
06:34That's the expectation.
06:36The expectation is moving beyond, Please give me an e-size printout, to Please give me a highly interactive web application…
06:43…I can use on my lightweight device.
06:47But also, we've seen this trend where content has fundamentally changed how we do our work.
06:53How many people have been involved in GIS for more than 10 years? More than 20 years? More than 30 years?
07:02Okay, just a couple.
07:05Look back 10 years.
07:07How much of your job was actually about building the basemap that you had to actually put your day job on top of? Right?
07:14A lot of it. A lot of it was just getting this information together that actually wasn't part of your job…
07:18…but unless you had it, the rest of your stuff didn't even make sense.
07:22Nowadays, that information is a dial tone.
07:24It's available, constant, everybody expects it.
07:27There's an expectation of people coming out of school nowadays that, of course there's content.
07:33What do you mean there's an unmapped section of the world?
07:37There still are. Okay?
07:39Just remember that. Or it hasn't been mapped in a really long time and was mapped poorly when it was done.
07:47But there is this expectation, and that's fundamentally different than how many of us came out of school 10, 15, 20 years ago…
07:54…where we knew we had to build the content. That was the first step.
07:59And then we could start putting our operational overlay data and analysis on top of it.
08:03So this idea of content is key. People expect it, both provided from us or other services…
08:10…or someone in your organization is actually tagged as, you're going to provide the basemap for this organization.
08:16Everybody else is going to use it and not mess with it.
08:20Within GIS, but also within the IT world as a whole, the notion of information sharing has become critical.
08:28You no longer give people projects and say, Here's this project; you know, it's probably going to take three years to complete…
08:35…let me know how it goes.
08:38We chuckle, but that actually was pretty standard a few years back.
08:43In IT cycles, three years, one year, six months, you'd go dark, as the expression says.
08:50You just…that you leave them in the corner. You expect magic to happen.
08:54That's not expected anymore.
08:55What's expected is continual update of where you are, what's happening, and minor course corrections as you go.
09:02You see this in business analytics and executive dashboards where they're looking and seeing this information change…
09:08…and just tweaking the course of the company or the organization slightly as you go.
09:14This same notion applies to GIS.
09:17Giving people a task to go and collect and put in 30 new subdivisions, tell me when you're done, isn't acceptable anymore.
09:26People want to see that information as it's collected.
09:28They want to understand it. They want to start to be able to provide feedback of that information.
09:37And imagery, you know, I've made the statement a few years back that this group of ArcGIS or Esri users…
09:45…is the largest collection of geospatial imagery users in the world. And I firmly believe that.
09:50But primarily, we've been using imagery as dumb backgrounds, right?
09:54Pretty pictures you put behind the map, you draw some features on top of it.
09:58And that's becoming more and more critical.
10:01Higher resolution imagery, much more frequent imagery, be able to change your underlying data.
10:06But we're also starting to reach out and use all that other rich information that's inside of imagery…
10:12…and starting to make operational decisions because we know just enough about imagery to be dangerous…
10:17…and start to use some of those multiband, hyperspectral combinations and go, huh, why is that there? Let me go do some more work.
10:25So that's another big trend that we see.
10:29So, on to 10.1.
10:32For us, 10.1 is just a continuation of the 10.0 system.
10:37We do see ArcGIS as a system.
10:40It's got many parts, Desktop, Server, Mobile.
10:43But fundamentally, they are engineered to work together.
10:48And you can use these clients across the web, mobile, or desktop…
10:51…against your information store and analytics that are being done in the enterprise, on your desktop…
10:59…in the cloud, or, increasingly, on our own online system, which is one of our focuses for 10.1.
11:0710.1, there's a lot of new capabilities.
11:12I'm not going to cover all of them today, otherwise, we'll be here for a few hours.
11:18But it's really built on top of 10. That's the key. This is not a whole, you know, change everything that you know.
11:25There are a number of key themes.
11:27Actually, back to this one, when. So before I get the question, beta in a couple of weeks, release first part of next year.
11:37Everybody who's a current customer, which is pretty much everybody who attends this conference, can get beta.
11:43Go to betacommunity.esri.com and sign up. You can get beta.
11:52There are a number of key themes that we talk about when talking about what, you know, what 10.1 is, what it's about.
11:58It's about providing a new online platform for doing your work.
12:02It's going to change how you think about using online resources.
12:05It's more than just some data in the cloud anymore.
12:08It's about making sharing of your information easy.
12:13But it's also reinforced traditional GIS tools and tasks.
12:18You have a day job. You have a lot of things you need to do.
12:21There's things we can do to make that easier.
12:24But also support strengthening our server platform and architecture so you can do these things better.
12:31Expanding our mobile offerings and actually empowering developers with some new tools to build custom solutions.
12:40First, let's talk a little bit about ArcGIS Online.
12:44ArcGIS Online is evolving rapidly. Right?
12:47Many of you associate the words ArcGIS Online with some data.
12:51Oh, that's where I get those street maps and topo maps and imagery.
12:55Yes. It's also got some web viewers, and I can share packages and create groups. Yep, you can do that, too.
13:02Well, as of last week, ArcGIS Online expanded so that you can start to make maps from data.
13:08You can drag your CSV file into the web app and start to do thematic mapping against it.
13:13Well, that's interesting.
13:14Why that's really interesting is, you as the GIS professionals are going to build the base service layers of your data…
13:22…that everybody else in your organization can then go, Oh, yeah, show my dots on top of that.
13:27Because we do a lot of work as GIS folks where people walk into our office and say, Hey, could you map this for me?
13:32I need this on a map.
13:35And it'd be great if we could self-empower them to do it themselves…
13:39…and eliminate the need for you to create those one-off, little special projects.
13:42There still will be. We know that.
13:45But, giving them the power to start asking some of these questions might take you to the next level of the spatial understanding.
13:52What's coming later this year is providing entire GIS infrastructure, hosting, and organizational subscriptions to Online…
14:04…and then complete integration with 10.1.
14:07Well, what does this mean?
14:09So we know what we can do with this, right? We can upload, store data…
14:13…but those last couple, we can complement our current infrastructure.
14:18With…with the new version of Online coming later this year, you'll be able to spin up your own services in the cloud.
14:25Think of it as a virtual server that you now have access to, and you can package up data from your desktop…
14:31…send your map up to the cloud and have it spin up, and you control all the security and access for who can get to it.
14:39Your organization can actually set up their own organizational community online…
14:45…where they're controlling, by permissions, what their members can do, who can publish, who can use…
14:50…and who can administer all these resources that are now running in the cloud.
14:56Fundamentally for all of this is this concept of interactive maps.
15:00They're intelligent web maps.
15:03These maps are what take these multiple services and put them together and provide the intelligence for how to explore them.
15:12How do you edit them? What's the template look like? How do you identify them?
15:17What's the user experience when you look at it? Do you see graphs? Do you see a table? Do you see a list of numbers?
15:22What do you see? How do you use this information? How do you make this data come alive for people who want to use it?
15:28That's stored as part of an intelligent map.
15:32The geospatial infrastructure that's going to be there will allow you to actually package up your maps…
15:37…send it up to the cloud, and create tiled map services, feature services.
15:45There's no expense.
15:46There's no hardware you're buying to be able to do this.
15:51So you could scale up your organization capacity.
15:54You can make them everywhere from just let me publish my map so people can see it…
15:58…to let me publish my map and then let me publish this other layer where people can edit it.
16:04And you can control who has access, whether it's just people in your organization, a wider community…
16:09…or anybody in the world so that they can go and actually start to edit information.
16:16They're editing your geodatabase now hosted in the cloud.
16:20And they can do that from their mobile device or from a web or from the desktop.
16:26And it provides this cataloging of information.
16:32Many organizations that I've encountered over the years are quite different in different parts of them.
16:39Some parts of the organization are extremely well organized.
16:42Other parts are less so.
16:45And that's fairly typical.
16:47You'll have fiefdoms within an organization and people who want to do it their way.
16:52But as an organization, how do you start to look at all of this information together?
16:57Well, this actually provides the gateway.
16:59It provides the portal where people can start to leverage and log their information here.
17:04And you can start to discover it.
17:06They don't have to build the ultimate unified system where everything is in one structured storage, one structured nomenclature…
17:15…and everybody agrees by those rules, because that's really hard to do.
17:18A few of you have succeeded in that, and I congratulate you.
17:22The rest of you, that actually may never be possible in your organization.
17:26But, if you can get there, that's great.
17:27If you can't, start to leverage online.
17:30You can bring all these resources together but not actually have to physically move it and tell people how to live their lives.
17:38As an organization, you can actually personalize the look and feel.
17:42If you want the people in your organization, when they log in, to see the top maps for your organization…
17:47…not just the top maps at ArcGIS Online, you can do that.
17:52If you want to tell them what your basemap is, you could do that.
17:55So you can really configure this as your information portal for your organization.
18:00And you can have it…access it from our web cloud, or for some of you who can't…
18:05…you can install it and get it behind your own firewall to have the same capabilities.
18:12Now at 10.1, we're going to be able to publish these very easily from Desktop.
18:18So Desktop will actually have this connection to Online where it can send data up. I'll talk about these more in a moment.
18:28As part of the organizational site, you can create these secure groups…
18:33…and the administrator could actually control the sharing policies, how the data can be shared and to whom.
18:39But the administrator also has the ability to control users. Right?
18:43What happens if Bob leaves the company? What happens to the data he uploads? Who owns it?
18:48How do you manage that? Which…do you know who uploaded what data?
18:51All of that information control is part of the system, because that operational stuff will bite you if it's not there.
19:01To empower this, we're adding this ability to share your maps, analysis, and other information.
19:09Now you can share to other GIS professionals using a package.
19:13We have map packages and layer packages right now inside of Desktop.
19:18Well, we've expanded them, and we've added a number of other packages.
19:24We've added a geoprocessing package, a tile service package, and a locator package.
19:34We also…so these packages can be sent out; they're files, right?
19:39I can give them to you, and you can just use them.
19:41You don't have to be an expert in how to use the tool, the map, the locator.
19:45You click on it and it starts up and is ready to use.
19:49You could also share these as services where you take those same packages, provide a little more additional information…
19:58…and publish it up to your server or an online hosted server, and it spins it up automatically as a service.
20:05So you don't have to give your package to a GIS professional.
20:09You can give a service to anyone which means it gets embedded in web applications or it's used in desktops.
20:20Now sharing analysis is one of the really interesting aspects here, because it's something we've always been really, really bad at it.
20:30How many Workstation ArcInfo users do we have? Alright.
20:36In AML, dear to my heart, or in Avenue, which I know way too much of…
20:46…it was very, very hard to pull together your analysis logic and the data and give it to somebody and say, Here, please use this.
20:56Geoprocessing at 10, you can do that, but you've got to be pretty smart to be able to get it to work well.
21:03And you still need to be able to tell them, Oh, yeah, you're going to need to go into your model and repair the paths and do it this way.
21:09What we've done for 10.1 is actually embed the idea of a geoprocessing package.
21:15So you can package up your analysis with or without the source data and give it to somebody and say, Just run it.
21:24They don't need to know how to repair paths, fix the model, do anything.
21:28They just use that.
21:29This is really going to transform how we do our work.
21:32Because within our organizations, we have a lot of people who are experts in one area…
21:37…and they build great models and tools but it's very hard for them to share their knowledge…
21:41…to other people in the organization without having to teach them.
21:44This is not about teaching.
21:45This is about them and packaging up their analysis and just giving it to somebody and say, Here, run this.
21:55Good pop music. Thank you.
21:58But it's also about sharing locators.
22:02Locators are these geocoders, place-names. Many of you build them with your own data.
22:06Giving them to other GIS professionals, it's hard, right? How do you give them the data? How do you give…
22:11We allow you to package that up. It's a single file. You give it to them. They unpack it, and it just works.
22:16That also allows us to send these up to your servers.
22:20You have a great locator on house number that you've built for your municipality.
22:24You can send that to your server, and now everybody in your organization can just use that locator…
22:30…and not have to copy the data to everybody's different machines.
22:37Moving forward, what we're going to allow you to do is package this stuff up and send it up to the cloud.
22:43You can send it to a file and keep it locally.
22:47You can send it to a file and put the file online so people can find it and download it.
22:52You can share it as a service against your own server, so spin it up on my own local hardware or cloud-based hardware.
23:02Spin it up online.
23:04So I actually at 10.1 as a desktop user, you'll be able to go to ArcGIS Online from ArcMap and say, I want to share this map…
23:13…share online, here's my account credentials, go.
23:17It will package your map up and say, Thank you, here's your URL. Your map is now live.
23:24Once that map is live, what can you do with it?
23:26You can access it for your mobile devices.
23:28You can access it from web browsers.
23:30You can access it from other desktops, and you get to control the security around that.
23:35That's going to enable a lot of sharing of information that's been very hard for you to get out of your organizations.
23:43Okay. The on-sharing…we're just improving our traditional GIS tools.
23:50And this is everything from mapping and visualization which includes things like dynamic legends.
23:57Dynamic legends are pretty easy, easy to get, right?
24:01When you zoom in on a map, your legend should only show you features that are actually drawn on the map.
24:07I think we've all had the argument with people over our careers, well, this legend says there's a bridge on the map…
24:12…where is it?
24:14Well, there is no bridge on this map.
24:15That legend is standard. It's…
24:17No, no. Show me where the bridge is.
24:18No, there's…okay, that goes away.
24:22You can actually set up the legend, we know optionally, because some people need to have the standard legend.
24:27But you can set up your legend optionally to grow and shrink depending on what features are actually drawn on the map…
24:33…and it will set up number of columns and space and shrink and grow to fit into the space that you tell it.
24:40And for an interesting QA tool, you can turn on a count that tells you number of features that are on the map in each of the categories.
24:50We put it there to really debug the system, because it was like, okay, is it working?
24:54Well, we found as a QA tool, it's really interesting, because if you're looking at a electrical network and it says…
25:00…Well, you have 1,000 transformers on this map, and you go, I'm supposed to have six.
25:06Hmm. Let me dig into that a little more.
25:08And it's hard to see that otherwise.
25:12We've expanded Python scripting which we added at 10.
25:15We've expanded it so you can start to do your thematic mapping and apply classifications and thematics…
25:20…iteratively over your maps to create map books and series and atlases.
25:26We've enabled a live time mode in the playback dialog.
25:29So if you have data coming in that's got recent time, near real time, it'll actually show up on the map.
25:37What's really interesting for a lot of people is this idea of generalizing your data.
25:41Generalization is really simple to understand. It's really hard to do.
25:45Generalization is the concept of taking detailed data and doing what our brain does when we take off in an airplane and look down, right.
25:54It's really detailed data. It's the earth.
25:57As we go up higher, our brain filters what we see so we can understand, Oh, yeah, that's a city, that's a road, oh, that's a canyon.
26:05We're not looking at individual trees anymore because our eyes can't see it.
26:08We're generalizing the information.
26:11Got to do that with GIS data, it's hard.
26:15We added a number of tools at 10.
26:16We've improved them with 10.1 and added some new tools including this idea where you can take an urban setting…
26:22…of buildings and streets, and as you zoom out, transform it into built-up area.
26:31So you don't have to draw the buildings anymore.
26:32It looks better as you zoom out in scale.
26:37And a number of improvements to the layout in addition to the dynamic legends…
26:40…including little things like, be able to have two units of measure on one scale bar.
26:46Okay, that took us probably longer than it should have.
26:52As well as magnetic north and true north, be able to…we fetch those from the tables…
26:57…you say where it is, and it'll actually adjust the arrow for you.
27:02And we ship a lot of information with our software, coordinate systems.
27:06We ship, you know, over 2,000 different coordinate systems, projections that you can pick from.
27:12Finding the one you want is hard.
27:16At 10.1, you can search by keyword.
27:18So if you just want to see UTM, type in UTM.
27:21If you just want to see UTM zone 18 north, type in UTM zone 18 north, and it will filter it down for you.
27:28Now that's useful if you know what you're looking for.
27:31But a lot of us aren't that smart.
27:33So, I know where I want to be, right.
27:35I'm zoomed in to Bozeman, Montana.
27:38What projection should I use? Nobody from Montana answer the question.
27:43How do you figure it out?
27:45Well, you go back to that shapefile or coverage or geodatabase you have that has the UTM zones…
27:51…and you look to figure out which UTM zone or state plane you should use, or you check the box in here now at 10.1 that says…
27:58…Use spatial filter, only show me projections that are appropriate for me to use where I'm currently zoomed.
28:04That also works for transformations.
28:07Now, I'm scared to ask this question.
28:10How many people use the transformation dialog in ArcMap?
28:15Okay. How many of you think you're experts at it?
28:18Yeah, one guy in the back. Sorry. You're probably wrong.
28:24It's really complicated, right.
28:25Transforma…projection transformations are difficult, and we don't make it easy because right now at 10…
28:32…the transformations you're shown are all possible transformation options regardless where you are in the world.
28:38So if you're zoomed in to the Gulf of Mexico and you're going from NAD83, WGS84…
28:45…you got transformations listed that are valid in Alaska.
28:50At 10.1, those are filtered.
28:51Those only show you transformations that are valid for the place you currently are with the extent of your data.
28:58Added other improvements on symbology, be able to use transparent PNGs.
29:02You know, those really pretty iconic things, nontraditional cartographic icons, right, the web icons.
29:09But people are expecting them more and more in cartographic products.
29:13And this idea of key-numbered labeling.
29:17This is, when you're labeling features and they're too dense together…
29:22…what you see on street maps is they put little numbers next to them…
29:25…and then they put the names of the streets over in some white space. We'll actually do that automatically for you using Maplex.
29:33Oh, and by the way, Maplex is included at all license levels.
29:43Yeah, I thought you'd like that one.
29:45So all license levels now include Maplex.
29:48You can create and use Maplex rules.
29:54We've improved our Desktop search.
29:55This is the ability to find information and, you know, added some fairly obvious things like spatial search…
30:02…but also some nonobvious things like be able to filter your search by attributes of the data…
30:09…like what projection it's in. How relevant is it for the spatial area you're looking at?
30:15What type of data is it?
30:17So you can start to filter your results.
30:19And this idea of favorites.
30:21So once you find data, you could actually add it to your Favorites gallery…
30:24…so you don't have to keep going to that directory time and time again to find it again.
30:28It's just sitting there in Favorites.
30:32We have a number of improvements just in Python, improving how Python works, and this means automate…
30:39…improving the performance on network analysis, improving the performance on data access and then…
30:45…improving the ability for Python to be used to build your own tools and toolboxes…
30:50…without having to resort out to default tools or other coding languages.
30:56And for those of you really interested in Python, we now allow you to build add-ons in Python.
31:02Add-ons is a concept we added at 10 where you can build a customization and give it to somebody…
31:08…and it doesn't require any install or registry settings.
31:12So you can use it in these lock-down environments because it doesn't require an install.
31:19You can now build these add-ons with Python.
31:21So as you take and build your great geoprocessing tool that you think is great…
31:26…you can package it up and give it to somebody as an add-in, and it's a button on their UI. That's all they need to use.
31:33Now we did add a whole bunch of new tools and a lot in new parameters…
31:36…so a lot of the tools that you know, we've added new parameters to them to give you additional options…
31:42…on what you're currently able to do.
31:44I'm going to cover a few of the tools.
31:47This is supposed to be GPS. I didn't fix this from last time. Oops, I knew I had forgotten something.
31:52GPS To Layer takes a GPX file and converts it to a layer. Right.
31:57And very commonly you get them off your GPS units.
32:00We'll also be able to take your geotagged photos and be able to automatically suck in a directory of them…
32:07…and create points with linkages to them.
32:11Improved our KML, just support for KML across the board in all of our clients…
32:17…but also some new tools, tools to be able to tabulate the intersection of objects in numeric fashion…
32:23…but also polygon neighbors.
32:27Now this…those of you from old school and my generation, PAT tables, right.
32:35You get to the same information now from the polygon neighbors function that tells you what the neighbors are.
32:42And those of you who don't know what a PAT table is, you're lucky.
32:48But we also improved analysis.
32:49I mean, fundamentally for us, pretty picture maps come as a result of analysis.
32:54That's the core thing.
32:57Some really interesting things that we've done in analysis.
33:00One is this idea of spatial scale.
33:03It's sort of a guess right now.
33:08When you run your analysis, well, you know, what scale should I do this analysis at?
33:13Is it…should I find the spatial hot spots at 1 to 25,000 or 1 to 30,000 or 1 to 50,000?
33:19Because, you know, you know they're not there at 1 to 100,000, and you know they're not there at 1 to 5,000…
33:24…because it's too little or too big.
33:27But is there cluster somewhere in there?
33:29And right now, we iterate through it and try it; No, I don't think that's right. Try it; No.
33:34At 10.1, we give you a tool.
33:36It runs tests at varying scales and comes back with a spatial autocorrelation.
33:42It comes back and says, You know, there seems to be autocorrelation at this scale…
33:45…and does not seem to be autocorrelation at this scale.
33:48You can start to figure out whether or not all the analysis we've been doing for years is actually done at the right scale.
33:53Don't tell your boss.
33:56We've also added the ability for geodetic buffers.
33:58Most of you will not care at all about geodetic buffers because you've been buffering in the projection…
34:04…that you're supposed to be buffering in right now, right?
34:07Nobody in their right mind's going to be buffering in decimal degrees. Right?
34:13If you're saying, I do that all the time, we'll talk later.
34:17Geodetic buffers actually use the geodetic distance along the feature regardless of projection.
34:24Extremely accurate but may not make sense when you're trying to measure distance in that projection…
34:29…because distance was measured different in different projections and all that stuff.
34:34Space-time clustering. Two different things here, time clustering and spatial clustering, and both can be combined.
34:44Clustering allows you to give it a set of data, set of attributes, and it will process it and say…
34:50…It looks like you have groups of data that here, here, and here that are naturally clustered together…
34:56…either in space, time, or space-time combination.
35:02Really interesting. Start to get a handle on your disparate data and figure out, is there a pattern here you can't see.
35:10Other one that's…we've been doing for years and many of us have been doing wrong, myself included, is areal interpolation.
35:17Being able to take values from one areal unit such as, let's say, census tract…
35:25…and assign it to a different areal unit that does not match the boundaries like ZIP Code.
35:32Okay. If one is population, how do you get population at ZIP Code level?
35:36You can't directly proportion it. That would be a bad idea. Right?
35:40What we do here is what we think is probably the most accurate interpolation of areal values between mapping units that's available.
35:51So we model a continuous surface of values based on the surrounding values…
35:55…assuming there's always a trend on where the people will live, and you can play with the trend and whatnot…
36:01…and then reassign it at the other scale.
36:04Some of us have been doing this sort of with Spatial Analyst, kind of hacking around for a few years.
36:08This actually is a very easy tool because it's a very common problem.
36:13Empirical Bayesian kriging, biggest words in the slide deck.
36:18It just means simple kriging.
36:20Kriging by default is hard, has a whole bunch of parameters, and it's easy to get wrong.
36:24Bayesian kriging actually is much more flexible in its results and much more flexible with the datasets…
36:31…and, in general, gives you a better result for interpolating values.
36:35Now a few people are going to mug me afterward for making that comment, but, okay.
36:403D. We've added 3D volumes and 3D shadow analysis.
36:44So you can start to look at where the shadows fall from the building structures that you have.
36:48This is useful in planning and analysis, you know, new building here…
36:52…who's going to be complaining because they don't see the sun anymore.
36:55Also really interesting when you look at, you know, northern cold cities.
36:59I used to live in them. Ice kind of sticks around for a while.
37:03Where does it stick around? It sticks around in the shadows, and you can actually model that…
37:07…and figure out where to deploy the resources to best get rid of the ice.
37:12Did a number of improvements in geodatabases including things like improving admin tools…
37:18…actually, just giving you some admin tools.
37:20We took the old Geodatabase toolset, incorporated that as a core-supported tool…
37:25…and built a geoprocessing toolbox full of tools for you to automate your administration of your geodatabase.
37:32So you can see all the users connected, all the sessions open, all the locks open…
37:38…and you can choose which ones to kill directly as the administrator.
37:42So you can unlock those people who left the session running all night long.
37:47But we also allow you to update the schema; little thing, big impact.
37:52You can now rename a field, right.
37:54You can delete something while it's in use.
38:00This one's really interesting. We had this idea of native SQL access.
38:05A lot of you have data coming from other databases that are not geodatabase-enabled, or you can't geodatabase enable.
38:13Your database administrator says, There's no way you're putting that thing on my database.
38:18We now allow you to directly connect to those external databases.
38:23We've allowed that for a while, right? It's called query layers at 10.
38:27Well, at 10.1, you can actually edit it as well, and we expose it as a REST-based service out of ArcGIS Server…
38:35…so you can actually edit the data from any of your clients.
38:40And if you have spatial data stored in those databases, you can directly edit that spatial data as well.
38:47So you don't need…if you have simple feature geometry stored in SQL Server, Oracle, whatnot…
38:53…you can actually edit those directly now using this interface.
39:01The last thing actually cuts kind of across geodatabases and from the editor is the idea of feature edit tracking.
39:09So, when somebody edits a feature, if you turn this on, you record who last edited the feature and put that in the database.
39:17It's a low-level feature of the geodatabase, so it doesn't matter if they edit in ArcMap, on a web client, or in a mobile client.
39:24You still record who did the last edit and who created that feature.
39:31Now imagery continues to be the focus for us, and some of this is, you know, pretty focused, and some of it's pretty broad.
39:38The really useful stuff for most of you is automatic image enhancement…
39:43…the ability that when you add an image, it should just look good by default.
39:49You should never see the black image problem that we've had in the past where you had an image…
39:53…and it's just this black mess and you go in and start playing with the histograms to get it so you can see it.
40:00We, by default, will be applying automatic enhancements to make the image look right.
40:05And as part of this, we're actually reading the other metadata that comes with the imagery nowadays…
40:11…that tells us, oh, it's an 11-bit IKONOS image because we know how to deal with those images different than if they were a…
40:18…you know, a TIFF file on disk from an aerial platform.
40:23As part of that, we have this other idea of raster products.
40:27Raster products is the notion that, many of these aerial platforms…
40:30…when you get the image, you get multiple images, one for every band…
40:34…and then you get this little file that's meta information that says, oh, by the way…
40:38…if you'd like a natural color image, combine image 1, 2, and 4.
40:43If you like a pan-sharpened image, use 1 and 5, right.
40:49They tell you all this in this metafile that comes with your rasters nowadays, your imagery.
40:54We actually read that metafile, and we expose all of those combinations as what looked to you like virtual images.
41:00It'll say pan sharpened. GeoEye pan sharpened. Oh, yeah, that's the one I want.
41:05You could do that right now in 10, but you have to add two images and then use the tool to say pan sharpen this, do this combination.
41:13We just do it all for you now.
41:15The other one that's really interesting is this mensuration. It's height measurement.
41:22If you have the camera information from the image, the sensor, the sensor model, you have a terrain…
41:28…we can measure the height. We can measure the height of the building. We can measure the shadows…
41:32…and give you an approximate height because of that.
41:38Well, easier georeferencing.
41:39This is also kind of a throwback to the workstation days.
41:43Georeferencing in ArcMap has been very hard from the beginning, right?
41:47You take one image, put a point in, flip your screen, look at the other image, put a point in.
41:52We pulled up…we pulled back the concept of having multiple windows.
41:56So you have one window on one image, one window on another, one window on another…
41:59…and be able to just put in your tie points between them and click Go and get the georeferencing.
42:04So that's going to be a big improvement if you do georeferencing.
42:08And some additional formats and models including the community sensor model.
42:13Those of you who use mosaic datasets, they're really, really powerful, but we haven't given you a lot of tools to be able to debug them.
42:20Like somebody deleted some images from your disk, which ones are gone? Which parts are broken?
42:25You moved it from one machine to another. Did it all come across fine?
42:29So we give you a bunch of tools now to analyze that, and we've updated the REST interface for all of this on Server…
42:35…so that from Server, you can actually manage these image mosaics…
42:38…update them so you can add a new tile to your image from a web browser, and you can download, update this information.
42:47You can actually do that high-accurate measurement, the mensuration, directly from a web browser as well.
42:54Really interesting area for us is lidar.
42:58Right now, I'd venture a portion of you have lidar datasets that you actively use.
43:05Give it three to five years, I'd venture every one of you is using lidar in some respect.
43:10So it's something even if you're not using right now, you need to get your…start to get your head around it.
43:14Lidar is a data collection technique using, you know, traditionally laser, getting reflected points back.
43:23So you get little points at highly accurate measurements.
43:29Hundreds of thousands is tiny in this world. Millions is easy, and many people are in the billions of points being collected.
43:38You're not treating this like normal data. It would be a bad idea.
43:44So what we're doing is we're using what we learned from working with imagery and building these dynamic mosaics…
43:50…where you don't…we don't have to suck all many gigabytes, terabytes image into a system.
43:54We just dynamically put them together.
43:56We're doing that same thing for lidar data.
43:58Lidar data is traditionally delivered in LAS file format.
44:01You put your LAS files in a directory and say, Build me a lidar dataset, and it just references those…
44:06…and you can look at it in raster, in terrain, or as a point cloud dynamically.
44:12You can do analysis off it. You can do visualization off it.
44:15It's really, really powerful.
44:17You can even use point clouds that are not typical terrestrial lidar, you know, down scanning but side scanning…
44:18That's actually terrestrial side scanning when you've seen a few of the demo trucks driving around here…
44:24…like you see here in the red building on the pictures.
44:32…with the big spinning mirrors in the back that they're sensing from.
44:36This is going to be really interesting.
44:41Then a number of tools for working in 3D and virtual cities, which means little things like say…
44:47…I'm working on a city so don't let me by mistake go under the ground.
44:53Have you ever tried to work in 3D? It's sort of easy…
44:56If you try to get close to the ground, it's easy to go under the ground so we allow you to turn that off.
45:01Focus on performance, but also these targeted tools like shadow and visibility and skyline…
45:07…that allow you to better model a cityscape.
45:11Many people are starting to use 3D on these larger scale, smaller area things like campuses and buildings…
45:20…to be able to model the campus in 3D, be able to model evacuation routes in a building and connectivity.
45:27So your route…routing algorithm works through that.
45:29We give you better tools that work at building and maintaining this data.
45:37Many of you have heard on Monday, we announced a new acquisition.
45:41We're buying a little company in Switzerland called Procedural.
45:44They have a product called CityEngine. It's pretty cool.
45:48It's not…first I'll say right now, it's not part of 10.1.
45:52We'll have a…we'll have a stand-alone product later this year, and then over time, it's going to be integrated into the ArcGIS family.
46:00What it allows you to do is take your traditional GIS data, like a line, a polygon, or a point, and apply a set of rules to it.
46:09Those rules tell it how it's drawn. These models here in this interactive animation that's playing…
46:15…there's nothing in those datasets other than a lot, the parcel lines.
46:23What's put on top of it is, oh, yeah, in this lot, draw a building of this type with this sort of offset, this sort of quality…
46:29…this sort of degragation, go.
46:31And it generates the 3D content.
46:35It's really impressive.
46:36It was actually these guys made a name for themselves from that visualization end.
46:41Their stuff was used in the Cars 2 movie to build the cityscapes that are used if you've got kids like me or…
46:47…your excuse of having kids to go see it. It's pretty cool.
46:48Because, like people expect web applications, actually, people expect 3D visualizations to look like real life.
46:51But the buildings are highly detailed.
46:53And you can control that level of detail.
46:55Now, why is this interesting to GIS folks?
47:05And if you had the ability to take a planned subdivision and set up a few rules and generate a 3D content of that planned subdivision…
47:14…it really helps people understand what you're talking about versus, oh, yeah, we're just putting…don't worry…
47:19…we're just putting 450 houses in this area.
47:22Okay, what does that look like? Oh, my God, right?
47:26It's a very big visualization tool. So it's coming.
47:30Now 10.1 Server?
47:33Server's about taking all these GIS capabilities that you've been using for years on your desktop, exposing them as web services…
47:41…and serving those out to lots of different people.
47:45Now 10.1 for Server, we did a lot of work.
47:49We actually did a major rearchitecting of entire thing of Server.
47:56So some things, like DCOM, don't exist anymore.
48:02Yeah, there's some…if you know what DCOM is, you're clapping.
48:04If you don't know what DCOM is, don't worry.
48:08What it is, is we rearchitected Server to be much more scalable, much more flexible in its deployment.
48:15The configuration and deployment of Server has been challenging for pretty much everybody. Face it.
48:21Now, literally, it is very simple to set up and configure.
48:25It's very simple to scale. You can set it up to autogrow in your clusters, to grow out or shrink down, and be elastic in nature.
48:33It is native 64 bit only at 10.1. We will not support 32-bit operating systems in Server at 10.1.
48:44Now you haven't been able to buy a 32-bit server in, yeah, five-plus years.
48:50But, I will mention this, you probably…if you use Server right now…
48:55…you probably have some developers or test machines that probably are running 32 bit…
49:00…because they happen to be cheap. They're sort of the flow-down machine, keep in the corner.
49:04So you'll need to be aware of that before you go to 10.1.
49:07I know 64 bit gives us tremendous improvements in memory management and also with that, with the rearchitecting…
49:14…and other changes, we got tremendous improvements in speed across the system.
49:19But with the rearchitecting also, it's all a web services, REST-based interface, which means you could administer it from REST…
49:26…you can configure it from REST, and you can directly use all of your standard web security for access.
49:32You don't have to use this weird DCOM stuff.
49:36But we also added some new capabilities.
49:38Capabilities like being able to print a web map, being able to build a web application, actually get a PDF out of the thing.
49:45Even though it's bringing together multiple services and it's got graphics drawn on top of it, we'll be able to print those.
49:53We've also added some additional standard support.
49:56We have a host of standards which we support now.
49:58We've added WMTS, which is a new web tiled service and WPS, which is the web processing service.
50:08And for the last thing that will kill IMS, is on-the-fly symbology.
50:16It's the only thing we're missing at this point.
50:18IMS had the ability…you could manipulate the AXL from the client and send it back to tell to draw…draw my data differently.
50:26We haven't been able to do that in Server easily.
50:29There are some of you who've figured out ways around it. It hasn't been overly scalable for it.
50:33At 10.1, we focused on that explicitly.
50:36You can have one service and dynamically have people alter how they get their maps from it…
50:41…change the symbology, change which layers it's using dynamically.
50:46It meets and exceeds everything IMS used to do.
50:49That, honestly, was the last thing left.
50:52We've beat IMS in performance and scalability and everything else at this point. That was the last thing left for it.
50:58So, if you've been holding off because that's been your one feature you needed, eh, time to move.
51:05We also made it easier to publish this stuff to the cloud.
51:09Our new architecture makes it much easier to do clustering and elastic computing…
51:13…so you can scale out the system without having to manually install and register and configure…
51:19…each individual node before you can use it.
51:24As with 10, we continue to support Amazon and have grown that support and made it stronger.
51:29We're also introducing Microsoft as your support.
51:32So, just like Amazon, you could…if you'd like to put your ArcGIS Server in the cloud…
51:36…you could now use Amazon or you could use Azure, we don't care.
51:40They're both platforms that you can use from the cloud infrastructure.
51:44But what we've seen is this trend for a lot of people have private clouds.
51:48Which just mean, you're not using Amazon or Azure. You're using IBM or you're using something else.
51:55Generally, these use virtual machine images, VMs, as the…the notion for how you pass the services around…
52:02…the building block for the program.
52:05And we documented and improved our support for that…
52:08…to be able to better support people who are deploying it in private cloud infrastructures.
52:14Now I'm going to switch gears here for a moment and talk about a new product.
52:21None of you have this.
52:24It's called the ArcGIS Runtime.
52:27The ArcGIS Runtime is for developers.
52:38What it does is, it provides a new way that, with its SDKs, provides a new way for developers to build lightweight…
52:49…as in small footprint, applications that run very fast that leverage your GIS data and your analysis.
52:59And it can run as a native 64-bit application on your desktop.
53:04It will also still run as a native 32. We'll ship both.
53:08It runs on Windows or Linux, and it supports WPF, Java, or Qt as the development environments.
53:23The main problem…the main thing this does, it makes it very easy to build these applications…
53:27…that are very lightweight and fast but also very easy to deploy.
53:31There's no registry settings involved at all.
53:35You know, ArcGIS Desktop or ArcGIS Engine right now, there's about 20,000 registry settings that you need to set that get set on install.
53:44You need to be admin to install those products.
53:46There's no way around it.
53:48Runtime literally can run off of a memory stick for the applications you build off it.
53:55So it makes deployment very easy.
53:56It's also version independent.
53:58So if you build an app on 10.1 and somebody else comes along later and builds one on 10.2 or 11 or whatever else next…
54:04…they don't step on each other.
54:07It also takes advantage of all the improvements in hardware, so multiple CPUs, multiple cores, this leverages those.
54:15And there's a very high performance display engine behind it.
54:20This supports both a connected and disconnected environment.
54:24So, you can…don't have to be connected to the net to use it, or if you are connected, you can leverage web services.
54:31So, it does not do everything that ArcMap or ArcGIS Engine right now does, because, otherwise, it'd be the same size…
54:41…and kind of defeat that lightweight purpose.
54:43But it does do most of the basic draw your map, edit your map, and run a geoprocessing tool.
54:51Most of what you're going to need, it's going to be able to do.
54:53Now how you do that, remember those packages I talked about earlier, map packages, layer packages, geoprocessing packages…
55:02…those are what you use inside the Runtime.
55:05You code the app, and if you'd like it to draw a map, you say, Please load this package.
55:11That package defines all your symbology, all the rules, everything you have to do…
55:15…because you really don't want to have to code how to draw a red, dashed line.
55:21You already have a tool to build a really nice red, dashed line with multiple hashes, whatever you need, inside of Desktop.
55:27You can create a package, and that defines it.
55:31So this is going to be a new product. How do you get it?
55:34The developer kit will be part of the EDN library, and then when you want to deploy your app…
55:39…you buy deployments in packs of deployments.
55:43Before somebody asks how much does it cost, I can't say. It's too early.
55:49We are still…we kind of know what it's going to cost, but we're not…we can't quite get there yet.
55:54We'll get there later this year.
55:58Now this notion of Runtime is actually pretty key…
56:01…because we can start to use this same notion beyond just building custom desktop applications.
56:10We are going to use this Runtime over time behind all of our mobile devices.
56:18So this Runtime will allow us to add GIS capabilities that run on board on an Android device, on a Windows Phone device…
56:28…on a Windows mobile device and, you know, eventually on an iOS device.
56:33Well, what does that mean?
56:34Well, that means that your devices just get easier.
56:37We're adding a lot of functionality like waypoint navigation and be able to edit the existing geometry…
56:43…be able to collect features, be able to support presentations.
56:48So how many people have an iPad?
56:51How many people want an iPad?
56:55They're incredibly powerful tools. I steal my wife's all the time.
57:01The presentation abilities that we have in Explorer Online right now can now start to be leveraged directly on the iPad.
57:09So you can sit there and give the presentation and talk about basically your geographic slide show…
57:14…and teach people about your data using this device.
57:17It's very intuitive for them to use.
57:22And little things like dateline support so you can actually, you know, pan across the dateline…
57:28…and not have to back up and go around the other side of the world.
57:31There's a few of you who've been yelling at that for some time.
57:36But probably the big thing that's coming is the ability to work offline.
57:43Scattered ____________[Unintelligible] of applause, David.
57:47So the ability to take your data, provision it to the device and then turn off the connectivity or walk away from the connectivity…
57:57…and then when you need to again, you get connectivity and you can sync your data edits back up.
58:01You continue to use the data you have in your device, and you can continue to be able to edit that data…
58:06…and then you'll be able to sync it when you get back.
58:09Now this is something coming in the mobile devices, and there's a bunch of tools we're going to have to provide with that.
58:14How do you provision data to get it to this device?
58:17Some devices will be connected, you know, in downtown San Diego here…
58:22…actually I get pretty spotty connections in some of those urban valleys, right?
58:26How do I make sure I have just enough data to walk through that block and still connect data?
58:31Other devices will be disconnected from pretty much the moment they leave the trailer…
58:35…where they're being provisioned on the fire line to the field and will always be disconnected until they come back to the trailer.
58:41How do you provision that data to them?
58:43Those are tools that we will be providing.
58:47Okay. I just covered a little tiny bit of what's coming in 10.1. There's a whole bunch more.
58:55You need to go to the other sessions. You need to go down to the island and see the demos.
58:59That's how you're going to get a feel for it.
59:00How many people did not see the plenary on Monday?
59:04Okay. Those videos are online. I'm going to give you some homework.
59:08You need to go watch them.
59:09Those of you who even saw it, I'd give you homework.
59:11Send the videos to your compatriots at work. Have them watch them.
59:14We did a bunch of demos on 10.1.
59:18Now those of you who are trying to sneak out before…because you think, oh, he's almost done with the slides.
59:24You might want to look at this slide.
59:27When is it coming? Talked about that. Right?
59:32Beta very, very soon.
59:34Release early next year.
59:36How do you get to sign up? Sign up at the beta community.
59:40But some things go away.
59:43We will not ship Workstation ArcInfo at 10.1, for the first time in our history as a company.
59:52Your version 10 Workstation ArcInfo will continue to work.
59:56We've done the engineering changes to it over the last two releases so that 10 and 10.1 have no dependencies on each other.
1:00:04So 10 Workstation can continue being used as is.
1:00:09We really haven't made updates to that in five-plus years.
1:00:13It is what it is.
1:00:16We will not ship IMS at 10.1.
1:00:20Between the changes to Server and the age of the technology and the security issues around it…
1:00:26…we can no longer update and maintain IMS.
1:00:31We will only ship a 64-bit version of Server. I covered that earlier.
1:00:36So you'd better figure out where you're running a 32-bit version of Server.
1:00:39Typically, it's not going to be in your production machines.
1:00:41Although I will caution you, I have found a few…I just want to say odd IT environments…
1:00:48…where they actually put…took a 64-bit server and uninstalled the OS and put 32-bit OS on it…
1:00:56…because they thought, well, I'm running 32-bit apps, I should have a 32-bit OS.
1:01:01Yeah, you're going to want to fix that.
1:01:04We're also moving forward on SQL Server, and we have to stay standard with where Microsoft is on their support.
1:01:10You know, there's some databases we just have to let go with.
1:01:15And we're also moving forward on Visual Studio.
1:01:16We're pretty…being pretty aggressive on Visual Studio to stay on the latest so we're at 2010 and higher.
1:01:24And how many people use VBA? I always hate asking that question.
1:01:30Okay. We told you last year at this time that 10 would be it.
1:01:35And actually, we made you at 10, you have to get a separate license; free, but you had to get a separate license…
1:01:40…even to be able to use VBA.
1:01:43At 10.1, you will no longer be able to create VBA scripts.
1:01:49We have given you a little bit of a reprieve, because you can still run existing VBA scripts.
1:01:57Okay, think about that. Do you really want to run scripts when you can't debug them or fix them?
1:02:03Can you guess what we're trying to make you do?
1:02:07So VBA as a scripting language was great 10 years ago.
1:02:13Its pattern doesn't work anymore.
1:02:15Between the add-ons, which I talked about which were released at 10, which are available in .NET, Java, we're now Python.
1:02:22We're just normal scripting…or, frankly, core tools. There are some VBA scripts that are just core functionality at this point.
1:02:30We haven't had a lot of push back. These work.
1:02:34Do not underestimate the amount of work.
1:02:36There is no, and if somebody tells you, I have a tool that will convert your VBA to blah, they're lying.
1:02:45It doesn't exist.
1:02:46You…and if it does, you know, invest.
1:02:53So these are some important points I want to make sure you're aware of.
1:02:55There's a deprecation document on our support site.
1:02:58If you search for ArcGIS and deprecation, we keep this document update with…
1:03:03…the devil of details of we're dropping support for this database, this version.
1:03:08We're dropping support for this, this, this.
1:03:10We publish, as soon as we know internally, we publish to that document.
1:03:15Our staff find out when I publish to that document.
1:03:17It's the same time you find out.
1:03:19So it's very important for you, you know, just periodically check that document.
1:03:23We also post on the…the blogs online and the support site and make sure that people know that we've updated it as well.
1:03:30But if you have never looked at that document, I would recommend search on ArcGIS and deprecation…
1:03:35…and you'll find the 10 to 10.1 deprecation document out there.
1:03:39We try to get it out there very, very early.
1:03:42Okay. With that, before you disappear, remember to put in the evals, and we'll open it up for questions.
1:03:53[Audience question] Does ArcIMS 10 continue to work in the 10.1 environment?
1:03:57Does IMS 10 continue to work in a 10.1 environment? Yes.
1:04:04Yeah. [Audience question] The ArcGIS Online stuff with the organizational setup, is that a fee-based service or is that?
1:04:10The question is, is the ArcGIS Online with the organizational a fee-based service or is that free?
1:04:15That's a fee-based service. Don't know on the fees yet. Can't talk about that. Yeah.
1:04:21You know, when you said direct connect to other databases ______(Inaudible)…
1:04:28…that means that I can actually access any time an SDE ____________(Inaudible).
1:04:32…in Oracle or SQL Server, and they don't have to have any SDE there, you didn't believe me, and that's okay.
1:04:33The question is, just clarification, when I said that you could connect from your ArcGIS directly to your spatial databases…
1:04:49It is true. You do not need to have SDE to connect to and work with any of that spatial data.
1:04:57Okay, we'll be up here if there's any questions, and thank you very much for coming.
