For June 2010 has been discussed will be available ArcGIS 10, Which we see will be a Important milestone recognizing the level of positioning of ESRI in the geospatial field. Already forums And other spaces are spoken quite, and sure of here to the Conference Of Julio Users, we can know much more.
At the level of common doubts, little by little ESRI is clarifying things that can not be had in the short term, and making stand out comparative advantages of what a big change means.
ESRI has already confirmed that it will not be able to coexist in the same ArcGIS 9.3 machine and also ArcGIS 10, unless it is in a virtual unit such as VM Ware's VM Workstation or Microsoft's Virtual PC.
Also in the cons they mention that they will not give continuity to Survey Analyst, which seems to be at the level of 9.3 versions, only Parcel Editor that will be part of ArcEditor and ArcInfo.
A tool called ArcPy, which executes geoprocesses on Python, is striking. And it is, with this toy it will be possible to avoid breaking links, as now happens with a .mxd and .lyr, which may have referred files, but there is no control in case they are deleted or moved. With this you could repair broken links and get reports of layers referred to in the mxd and its deployment attributes.
Of the best, the use of geoproceos in the background. This lets us keep working and lets us know when the process is finished.
At the database level spatial, we are pleased to know that PostgreSQL is hosted. Although they do not make it very clear if they improve the search capacity, clarifying that the novelty of the search is towards a small amount of metadata, but not to improve the indexing in the search into the data.

At the data construction level, the 3D work stands out. Here they promise that editing spatial attributes for both ArcGlobe and ArcScene will be available:
- Start editing, stop, save, undo and redo functions. Of course, with snapping style CAD platforms for the creation not only precise but practical.
- Creation of individual attributes, which includes storage of vertical lines in the geodatabase.
- Ability to bring 3D models, such as COLLADA, directly to the 3D view, with copy, move, rotate, CAD-style options.
- They also offer handling of terrain data sets, such as LIDAR point clouds and editing TIN data sets from ArcMap.
- Here is the link to the 3D capacity demonstration video. Looks great.
What else. To take a look, I recommend you aid, although if they want to see in a few minutes the novelty of the change, the videos are very practical. Here are some links
|Usability. The catalog is very handy from the ArcMap side, for simple drag and drop.
Also the way to locate side flaps is much better.
|GIS Server. It does not look bad, to make Mashups or portals for the Internet.|
|Controlled maintenance flow. This is very interesting, for data editing, with control of topologies and multiuser transactions.|
|Data analysis with ArcGIS 10. It seems that the best that ESRI will exploit is the handling of geoprocesses. And it gives the impression that the team will be able to perform better at the cached data level. Although still no one knows for sure about the support for 64 bits.|
There will also be free seminars, scheduled for the 29 for April, 13 for May, 20 for May and 17 for June.
