  • 10. Not a new Idea … Dana Tomlin
  • 11. Desktop GIS
  • 12. x 5 x 2 x 3 x 1 + + + = Generate Output Heat Map
  • 13. Web is different from the Desktop
    • Lots of simultaneous users
    • Stateless environment
    • HTML+JS+CSS
    • Users are less skilled
    • Users are less patient
  • 14. ArcGIS Server
    • Flex, Silverlight and JS API’s
    • Publish tasks and models
    • Caching
    • Optimized MSD files
  • 15. But wait … there’s a problem
    • 10 – 60 second calculation time
    • Multiple simultaneous users …
    • … that are impatient

    • Binary messaging protocol
  • 23. Distributed Geoprocessing
  • 24. Success!!
    • Reduced from 10-30 seconds to
    • <500 milliseconds
  • 25. Success!!
