What's New for Data Appliance 5.1 for ArcGIS
The Data Appliance 5.1 for ArcGIS has the following improvements and enhancements:
- A Europe Collection has been added. There are four collections to choose from when purchasing: World Premier, North America, Europe, and World Small-Scale.
- The Data Appliance 5.1 for ArcGIS contains only data and services that you are licensed to use. Customers who licensed the North America Collection in the past will have fewer disk drives in their data update than the initial or last update because the delivered content is now limited to what they have the right to use in the license agreement.
- Cache is delivered in ArcGIS for Server 10.1 compact cache storage format providing for improved data storage and transfer. ArcGIS for Server 10.0 SP5 or higher is required to publish these services.
- The services on the Data Appliance 5.1 for ArcGIS use a different directory structure than previous versions of the Data Appliance for ArcGIS. If you received a data collection update for the Data Appliance 5.1 for ArcGIS, ArcGIS services that utilize services from the Data Appliance 5.0 for ArcGIS or an earlier Data Appliance version must be deleted from ArcGIS for Server before you disconnect the Data Appliance 5.0 or earlier version. More details are available in the Quick Start guides and documentation.
Data Collections Coverage Map
Worldwide coverage is provided in the World Premier (down to largest scale available) and World Small-Scale (down to ~1:72k) Collections; regional coverage is provided in the Europe and North America Collections (down to largest scale available).
Note: The level of detail available to the customer is based on the collection purchased.
Three new services were added:
- National Geographic World Map: The National Geographic basemap provides a visually appealing map background. It is also suited as a general reference map for many GIS projects. National Geographic and Esri collaborated to produce this cartographically distinctive basemap that reflects National Geographic's cartographic design, typographic style, and map policies.
- World Light Gray Base and World Light Gray Reference: The World Light Gray Base and Reference maps are useful for adding your thematic content. The base provides a neutral background containing minimal colors, labels and features. Its reference layer sits on top of your thematic layers, providing geographic context and allowing your data to come to the foreground. The base and reference maps include boundaries, city labels and urban areas, and major roads worldwide. Detailed coverage in North America, Europe, Southern Africa, South America, and Australia is designed to be consistent with the World Street Map and World Topographic Map. At all scales, user-added polygons, lines, and point locations tend to be most visible on the light gray canvas basemap.
- The World Imagery service has been updated with 1m NAIP imagery in many parts of the United States and GeoEye IKONOS imagery in many regions outside the United States.
- World Street Map was updated worldwide. More parts of the world have new levels of detail down to 1:4,000, and selected urban areas have additional levels of detail down to 1:1,000. The following reference layers were also updated with similar coverage: World Boundaries and Places, World Boundaries and Places Alternate, and World Transportation.
- The World Topographic Map was updated. More parts of the world have new levels of detail down to 1:4,000, and selected urban areas have additional levels of detail down to 1:1,000.
* The level of detail available is based on the collection purchased.
- The World Navigation Charts map service was retired; this service is not included in the Data Appliance 5.1 for ArcGIS release.
- North America and Europe geocode and routing data and services from Data Appliance 5.0 for ArcGIS are no longer included as part of the Data Appliance 5.1 for ArcGIS release. These routing and geocoding data and services are delivered as part of Esri's StreetMap Premium for ArcGIS product. If geocoding and routing for North America or Europe were included with your license and you published these services with a previous release of the Data Appliance for ArcGIS, you will need to migrate to StreetMap Premium prior to your Data Appliance collection upgrade. If you have previously licensed these services as part of the Data Appliance for ArcGIS, DVDs of StreetMap Premium for ArcGIS should be in your possession. Any questions regarding this change can be directed to your Esri account manager, or you can send inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
World Places Locator DVD
If you were using the World Places Locator from the Data Appliance 5.0 for ArcGIS or an earlier Data Appliance version, that geocoding service is no longer included on the drives as part of the data collection. The locator is now shipped with the Data Appliance 5.1 for ArcGIS on a separate DVD containing data, service documents, and help for publishing the World Places Locator. If you published the World Places Locator with a previous release, you need to update your environment to use the DVD version prior to your Data Appliance collection upgrade. More details are available in the Quick Start guides and documentation.
