#TipTuesday is all about helping our users utilize all of the capabilities of their GIS site. This week, we wanted to give you a glimpse into the future of your GIS abilities as we begin to implement updates. All updates are being made to the HTML5 Viewer since Silverlight is no longer being developed for. That means that as these updates are coming in, there will be even more handy tips and tricks to keep you getting the most out of your GIS site.
Here’s what to expect:
- Save/Open projects (Silverlight save projects will not transfer over)
- Upload/Add data file
- Search non-spatial data (Inspections, Repairs, etc)
- Selections sets, so you can create groups of features.
- Coordinate tools
- Map right-click support
- Scale ratio input
- Print preview
- Support dynamic GDB version on feature layers and dynamic layers
- Save drawings to Shapefile
- Improved measure markup
By the end of 2016, the HTML5 Viewer should include everything and more than what is in the Silverlight Viewer. We expect this update to be implemented sometime in late April, but we will let you know when we have a firm date.
