What could your app do if it knew where it was?
The DevSummit brought it’s own version of madness to the demo theaters as Aaron Parecki from the Esri Portland R&D Center provided a packed house with the latest Esri tools for geocoding and place search, directions and routing, and how to store and query geographic data in feature services for your next app. Which can now all be found on one site, in one place at developers.arcgis.com. Live by the code.
Team Blue Raster in the house
