We are pleased to announce the release of Esri Maps for SharePoint v4.0.
Esri Maps for SharePoint offers interactive and configurable mapping components that provide your users with a geospatial view of your organization’s data. Visualizing and interacting with data through maps can help reveal larger patterns and trends that can lead to deeper business insights and better-informed decisions.
Key new features of Esri Maps for SharePoint 4.0 include the following:
- Support for SharePoint Online
Use the Esri Maps app and the Esri Maps Locate Workflow app in the Microsoft Office 365 platform. Your users are able to visualize and interact with your organization’s data on maps, spatially enable items in a SharePoint list, enrich data with demographic statistics, and perform data analysis, all within the SharePoint Online environment.
- Guest access
Allow members of your organization to view the Esri Maps Web Part without signing in to ArcGIS Online. A user signed in as a guest has access to limited functionality but is able to view and interact with the map.
- Portal for ArcGIS in a disconnected environment
Use Esri Maps for SharePoint against Portal for ArcGIS in an environment where Internet access is unavailable or where outside access is prohibited by your organization. Connect to your portal to access your organization’s data, geocoding services, and geographic data enrichment services, and share content back to the portal.
- Use your own coordinate system
Use the coordinate system of your choice and overlay other GIS datasets that are in your local coordinate system. You are no longer limited to using Web Mercator in your maps — Esri Maps for SharePoint now works with basemaps in many more coordinate systems, including WGS84. Basemaps now set the coordinate system for the map; all other layers added to the map are projected into that coordinate system on the fly. If you have locations in your data stored in one of the many supported projected and geographic coordinate systems, you can now add them to your maps as well.
- Extend the Esri Maps Web Part
Customize the Esri Maps Web Part to suit your organization’s needs by adding custom tools, behaviors, and symbols.
