ArcGIS 10.6: The End of an Era
Esri released its latest iteration of the ArcGIS platform last month. If you have had an ear to the spatial ground or caught our notes on pre-release features, you may be aware that ArcGIS 10.6 rings in the end of an era dominated by ArcMap. While Esri still plans to release several more iterations of ArcMap, the majority of attention moving forward will be focused on making ArcGIS Pro a fully functional and dare we say spiffy replacement for ArcGIS Desktop.
This isn't the first time Esri has made moves to enhance their software, ushering out the old in favor of something shinier. (ArcView, anyone?) It certainly won't be the last. With the application of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) constantly evolving and technology itself always finding new and better ways to make things happen, the evolution of software is just a given. We are excited to embrace what's to come and hope that organizations will see this potential change in platform as a way to take a long look at their data reflection...more on that later. We don't want to get too ahead of ourselves!
For now, let's take a peek into what the ArcGIS 10.6 release has to offer in the links below.
