ESRI Expands Virtual Earth GIS Access

Map

Microsoft Corporation recently made an agreement with Microsoft Virtual Earth to give GIS users the chance to gain faster access to their geographic information system (GIS) projects. As part of ArcGIS Online at the ArcGIS 9.3.1 release, ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Server users will be able to connect directly to Virtual Earth and quickly start their GIS projects with ready-to-use content. By bringing Virtual Earth into their GIS projects, people will have a greater opportunity to perform spatial analysis based on dynamic data.

ArcGIS users can preview Virtual Earth street maps, imagery, and hybrid map layers at http://resources.esri.com/arcgisonlineservices. Read more about using ArcGIS and Virtual Earth at www.esri.com/agolwhatsnew.
