DCSE's Map Library is a Web-based application designed for conveniently storing, searching, and retrieving enterprise map files. It can be accessed from any Web browser. Map Library is an ArcGIS extension that allows GIS professionals to directly archive their production-quality maps into Map Library's database without having to leave the ArcMap application. In an enterprise, there are typically many different users creating a large variety of maps with user-assigned file names. As these maps are stored, they become scattered across many different user- or project-based folders. Standard file systems fail to provide a capability for searching on metadata about the maps. Map Library was created to solve these issues.

The Omega Group
The Omega Group's CrimeView 2002 is the next generation of crime analysis software, based on Esri's new ArcGIS 8.x platform, and the first release of the OmegaGIS family of products. All of the queries, mapping, and analyses from their CrimeView extension to ArcView have been rewritten in Microsoft Visual Basic. While CrimeView 2002 will retain the same ease of use and similar user interface as their CrimeView extension for ArcView GIS, which offers an easy-to-use interface for the mapping, analysis, and reporting of crime data, many new enhancements have been incorporated into the product.

IcoMap for ArcGIS
UCLID Software's IcoMap for ArcGIS combines UCLID's patented point-and-click COGO technology with an exceptional 10-key COGO package, making it a convenient method for creating an accurate parcel layer in ArcGIS. The IcoMap extension also provides "shot call" editing, allowing users to make updates to individual lines and curves without redrawing an entire parcel. This feature makes updating and maintaining the parcel layer extremely easy. Other features include document linking and a curve "genie" to simplify curve creation. IcoMap is available as an extension for the ArcMap environment within ArcGIS, so users of ArcView, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo can use it.
