ArcWeb Services for Developers

In spring 2003, Esri released a new version of its collection of ArcWeb Services for developers. This suite of Web services, called ArcWeb for Developers, was previously known as ArcWeb USA. The name has been changed to reflect the expansion of data and services to cover Europe and Canada.

With the new version of ArcWeb for Developers, a variety of data is available to subscribers including vector and raster basemaps, census demographics, topographic maps, flood data, national elevation data, and much more.

New functionality includes the ability to do thematic mapping, perform reverse geocoding, specify projections, upload and edit points using Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), select map styles, and obtain driving directions in a number of languages.

ArcWeb for Developers is a suite of data and functionality that can be published and accessed over the Web. When users subscribe to ArcWeb for Developers, they can include a selection of geographic functionality in their applications without having to host the data or develop any GIS applications themselves. These services use SOAP, enabling them to be easily integrated into any Web page or custom-built Internet application.

For more information or a free 30-day evaluation, visit or call Esri at 1-800-447-9778.
