    ESRI Dev Summit part 1

    My live notes…

    Scott Morehouse (Director of Software Development) shares his vision of GIS.

    What is a GIS?

    An information system for spatial data

    • Geographic data
    • Editing and data management tools
    • Cartographic display and visualization
    • Spatial analysis and Geoprocessing

    An integrated system

    • Consistent data architecture
    • Complementary suite of applications
    • Consistent user interface
    • Consistent application programming interface

    ESRI’s goal is to provide the framework so developers can create the solutions their users need.

    Scott then talked about

    • Workstation GIS (Desktop is key and still very important)
    • Enterprise GIS
    • Web GIS
    • And how it can be an integrated system

    Up next, ArcGIS 9.3.1 demos
