Organizations Can Create Custom Websites to Serve the Open Data Community
Redlands, California— February 5, 2014—At the Federal GIS Conference in Washington, DC, next week, Esri will show enhancements to ArcGIS Online that allow organizations to create custom, open data websites. On Monday, February 10, attendees will learn how these enhancements simplify making geospatial data accessible to the public.
The upcoming release of ArcGIS Online gives organizations out-of-the-box tools to share authoritative data with their open data users. Members of the public can then search and download data by topic or location, filter to discover information, and immediately see it on an interactive map.
“The new ArcGIS open data capabilities make it much easier for organizations to provide open data access to the public.” said Andrew Turner, chief technology officer, Esri R&D Center, Washington, DC. “We are particularly excited about how this new technology supports the federal government’s open data initiatives. Open data published using ArcGIS is also a fantastic resource for entrepreneurs who need authoritative and re-usable data to build innovative mobile and web applications.”
