First Packaged Offering in New Family of ArcWeb Services

ArcWeb USA Now Available

With the release of ArcWeb USA, Esri offers users the ability to include GIS content and functionality in applications without having to host data or develop tools. ArcWeb USA provides an easy and cost-effective way for users to access up-to-date nationwide data and services. The result is significant savings of time, expense, and computer resources. Users can integrate these services into any application, leveraging their own data with access to continually updated nationwide information.

ArcWeb USA allows users to access dynamic maps of U.S. streets, topography, and demographics; perform geocoding on a nationwide scale; generate routes and driving directions between multiple locations; provide place finder capabilities; generate census demographic maps and reports; and upload and maintain user-defined points of interest. ArcWeb USA is available to Web developers through XML/Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) interfaces, and it will soon be available as an ArcGIS extension.

ArcWeb USA is Esri's first offering of an ArcWeb Services package. These packages are suites of self-contained, modular components and applications that are published and accessed over the Web. Esri also offers individual ArcWeb Services for ArcGIS Desktop users from the world's leading commercial data publishers.
