The future of GIS with Esri’s ArcGIS Online
Jack Dangermond, Co-founder of mapping software maker, Esri, discusses the future of GIS, it’s massive potential of GIS and Esri’s new ArcGIS Online cloud-based system. GIS WebTech’s mapping applications leverage ArcGIS Online, allowing our clients access to unrivaled GIS file sharing and collaboration in the cloud.
Online Web mapping involves designing, implementing, generating and delivering maps to end users via the Internet through common web browsers, allowing people to use maps interactively with out needing high end software. Web GIS is very similar to web mapping but provides analysis, data processing, publishing and other GIS abilities. Often these two terms are used synonymously, even if they are not exactly the same product. None the less both have been increasing exposure over the past few years, a major accomplishment for the GIS industry and since Web mapping can not exist without GIS, (and for simplicity) we have combined these all into one category here on the site.
Our web mapping section examines the various online web mapping and web GIS applications that have been created all across Canada.
Some of ones that we have covered are ones that we use on a regular basis, some that we stumbled across and some have been submitted to us by others. So as you browse through the our Web mapping section category you will find that are a wide array of online mapping applications with Canadian content being offered via the internet from Nova Scotia to British Columbia.
Some notable one that has been covered so far includes:
- GEONB – New Brunswick online aerial imagery & maps
- City of Prince George online PGMap Application
- The Regina Online Culture Map
- Trans Canada Trail – interactive web map
- The Falls Viewer – Niagara Falls Online Maps
Our aim is to continue covering all the great Online Web mapping in Canada so we would love for others to submit online web mapping applications that either they have created themselves or ones that they are aware of but we have yet to cover on our site. Simply use the form below …
