Our ROK team had a great time attending Esri’s Southeast User Conference in the beginning of May--Jason’s talk on Virtualized ArcGIS went well, we got to see a few of our clients, and brought back some good project ideas to work on. We also brought back a few good “myth buster” notes from Esri’s Plenary (hint: the myths are all… myths) that we thought we’d pass along.
If you’ve ever published a map service to the web and noticed that your lines and shapes appear to have taken on a different “dashed” symbology--you may need to adjust your map’s anti-aliasing settings. While this Esri’s Help resources page does a good job explaining the vector rendering differences between the different ArcGIS environments, I wanted to provide a comparison of a couple of the lower-end aliasing settings--to provide an initial “feel” for the trade-offs between speed and quality.
Mike, Jason, and I just returned from a fantastic trip to Palm Springs California. We attended Esri's Partner Conference and want to share some of the notable exciting developments for the ArcGIS© Platform.

When asked, many individuals can rattle off a number of good reasons to store and access data, files, images, and even software in the cloud. However, I feel that security and reliability is rarely the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about cloud computing.

In our webinar, Instant Enterprise For ArcGIS, we talked about the economic advantages to moving to the Cloud. I’d like to discuss this topic in more detail and how it can be applied to GIS. A lot has been written on the advantages of the cloud, but for the purposes of this post I am sticking with what I believe are quantifiable items that address common needs.
Well, first the bad news. There isn't one single cure-all for ArcGIS Server performance issues. The good news is, with some patience, you can get to the bottom of just about any issue you run into.
