ESRI Releases ArcGIS 9.3 - 04/06/2008


ESRI (CA, USA) has announced support for Adobe Acrobat 9 software and new geospatial capabilities available in PDF with the release of ArcGIS 9.3. ESRI has collaborated with Adobe Systems Incorporated over the past year to ensure a seamless workflow for geographic information system (GIS) professionals using ArcGIS who wish to widely distribute maps in PDF. Recipients of PDF map documents can find and display a location in the file using x,y coordinates as well as measure features directly on the map. This enabling capability enhances both existing customer workflows and creates new ones because recipients without ArcGIS can directly interact in new ways with maps using Acrobat 9.

ArcGIS 9.3 users can author a map document and export it in PDF for wide distribution while passing along the ability for increased end-user interaction with the document beyond simple viewing. The enhancements supporting PDF in ArcGIS 9.3 will be available as a free download for ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Server, and ArcGIS Engine at the release of ArcGIS 9.3.
