As much as I like to dwell in the past I must admit that on-line web mapping is the way of the future. I have been an enthusiastic supporter of ESRI’s ArcGIS Online web mapping environment for years. It works great, ESRI keeps introducing new features and it goes a long way towards helping organizations get into the business of web mapping without making a huge IT investment.
ESRI has a little known initiative called the Home Use Program, which for a mere $100/year gets you access to the latest version of ArcGIS for Desktop, most desktop extensions and gets you an ArcGIS Online account with a small package of user credits to let you ‘play around’ with web mapping. That’s what I’ve used to set up this web map gallery. Everything you see here is hosted via my personal ArcGIS Online site.
As I develop new and interesting web maps I’ll share them out through this web map gallery, so check back regularly to see what’s new!
