Arc2Earth v3 is available…

May 20th, 2010 Comments off

I have been waiting for the new version (V3) for a long time. This new version has a superb feature that called Cloud Services. This is the killer feature of Arc2Earth V3 due to decrease the need of ArcGIS Server. It uses Google App Engine for hosting and storage. This gives scalability to your GIS services.

Thanks to Brian, last year, I had a chance to try the clouding services for my presentation about Cloud Computing. I just changed my ArcGIS Server URLs to App Engine URLs and it was still working. There is no need to do extra things to work with Cloud Services, because it is fully compatible with ArcGIS APIs.

Anyway, I’ll write in details later when I finished reviewing the new version.

KML support on Google Maps JS API v3

May 11th, 2010 Comments off

Today Google Geo Developers Blog announced KML support for Google Maps JS API v3.

There is a new class kmlLayer which supports both KML and GeoRSS. The examples are as follows :

GeoRSS Example :

var georssLayer = new google.maps.KmlLayer('〈=en-us&format=feed-georss');

KML Example :

var ctaLayer = new google.maps.KmlLayer('');

There is also support for traffic and bicycling layers added at this version.

These are good signs to use V3 as new playground both for web and mobile applications.
