ArcGIS Server 9.3, the next version of the popular app will be an incremental release… support for integrated security, better cashing, more options in building apps and simple mashup applications, deploy REST services… and more! Some random notes from the session:
Enhancement – map tips
Enhanced printing support – print tool in web app
.Net web ADF
– full integration with ASP .Net AJAX
– enhanced task results, identify and map tips
– IDE integration for Eclipse and NetBeans
– combine your organization’s GIS content hosted in ArcGIS Server with content from Virtual Earth or from Google Maps, or ArcGIS online – powered by backend ArcGIS Server REST services.
Use Microsoft Virtual earth Map control and API – use VE as a base map, overlay GIS
Google Maps JS Map control and API – use google maps as base map overlay your data
Demo: quickly create a mashup using your data (ArcGIS) on a Google maps basemap.
