GPS Capability Now Integrated with ArcGIS Explorer Desktop

New Version Also Includes Enhanced Support for Querying and Adding Geotagged Photos to Maps

Redlands, California—June 15 , 2011—Esri today released the new version of ArcGIS Explorer Desktop, the free GIS viewer that gives users an easy way to explore, visualize, and share GIS information.  The latest build of ArcGIS Explorer Desktop now has integrated GPS capability, enhanced support for querying features, and a new feature that allows users to add geotagged photos directly to a map.

ArcGIS Explorer Desktop can be used with GPS devices to capture the user’s current location, along with waypoints and tracks, whether on foot or in a moving vehicle.  It also supports spatial selection using shapes (points, lines, areas) to query features using spatial operators such as contains, intersects, overlaps, and within. Combined with the existing support for logical queries, this provides a powerful set of capabilities that enables users to extract more meaning from their data.

The new release includes many other useful capabilities. For example, users can georeference images with tools available for nongeoreferenced rasters. ArcGIS Explorer Desktop also supports dragging and dropping geotagged photos directly onto the map. Geotagged photos are displayed at their tagged location. Non-geotagged photos can be geotagged manually.
