Web Mapping: An interview with Jack Dangermond

By Aileen Buckley, Mapping Center Lead

Zoom Levels Thumb

Someone pointed out to me that Esri’s CEO, Jack Dangermond recently did an interview that focused on web mapping. You can read and hear it here: http://radar.oreilly.com/2009/04/jack-dangermond-interview-web-mapping.html.

In fact, he is talking about what we on the Mapping Center team have been helping with recently Рmap templates.  These map templates are being created to give users a starting point to create their own maps and to share cartographic designs for web maps. We are planning to make a number of them available prior to the User Conference.

Take a moment to read or listen to the interview so you know what’s coming soon!
