Opening ArcGIS


Published on

A large amount of Public Sector spatial data has been created in and is managed in ArcGIS. This has often been seen as an impediment to providing universal access to that data, but in fact in this deck I argue that the opposite is true.
In recent years Esri software engineering effort has resulted in the adoption of open standards across the ArcGIS Platform that in turn make it possible to support our Customers as they seek to make more and more of their data available as either INSPIRE services or OpenData. This has resulted in a number of interesting Projects, both commercial and Open Source that have truly "opened ArcGIS".
This deck presents some aspects of that transformation, examines the resulting projects and consider future developments and of course has a bit of personal reflection thrown in for good measure!

  12. 12. Open Standards Strategy: To adopt and/or implement the open standards published by Esri, OGC and others necessary to ensure open systems interoperability.
  13. 13. Open Source
  14. 14. Approach: 1. ArcGIS is a platform 2. The platform and most of its elements are accessible via open standards 3. The platform and many of its elements are distributed under commercial licence for a fee 4. Some elements of the platform are distributed under commercial licence but are free of charge 5. Some elements of the platform are distributed under Open Source licence and are free of charge
  15. 15. You could: 1. Take a look! 2. Use esri.Leaflet or Open Layers to develop apps 3. Open Source your app on your own Git. 4. Host your app on GitHub Pages or your own web server 5. Fork & Contribute to our GitHub repos. 6. Use Flex or JS Templates to configure your own app 7. Host your app on GitHub pages or your own web server
  16. 16. Useful Resources: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Remember: • You can also use free of charge for free to air applications OR • You can also get a subscription ($10 buck’s a month) to if you want to monetise your app
