ArcWeb Services Now Offer Batch Geocoding

  click to enlarge
The new Report service included in ArcWeb Services provides detailed demographic reports and maps of user-selected trade areas.

ArcWeb Services offer a number of new services and additional data that can be used by developers as well as ArcGIS Desktop users. ArcWeb Services subscribers can now do batch geocoding, obtain demographic reports for specified regions, and access new data that includes weather forecasts, world administrative boundaries, and maps of New Zealand.

ArcWeb Services give subscribers access to both GIS content and GIS capabilities—on demand when needed—and eliminate the overhead of purchasing and maintaining large data sets. With ArcWeb Services, data storage, maintenance, and updates are handled by Esri.

New Services

Batch geocoding is offered to ArcWeb Services subscribers through the new Address Manager service. With this service, users can upload to Esri a custom set of addresses, which are then returned as geocoded locations for storage on the user's local server. From there, users can make the data available to other applications.

ArcWeb Services subscribers can now get detailed demographic reports from Esri Business Information Solutions (Esri BIS) using the new Report service. For a user-selected study area or trade area, the Report Web service returns aggregated results in PDF, Excel, or XML format.

Additional Data

Many data sources have also been added to ArcWeb Services, including Esri Business Partner Meteorlogix weather forecast data; New Zealand cadastral, land cover, street, and topographic maps; and world administrative areas. This is in addition to data already offered covering the United States, Canada, and Western Europe.
