#EsriFedCon Day One – Users Will Be Happy

I didn’t catch the first half of the Esri Federal GIS Conference plenary but James did a good recap of it on his blog. I did, however, catch the second half and the opening of the exhibit hall. This year was a departure from previous years in that it wasn’t a litany of the new … Continue reading #EsriFedCon Day One – Users Will Be Happy

I’ll be attending the Esri Federal User GIS Conference this week. For various reasons, I’ll be attending on the “Increased Carbon Footprint Plan” and commuting to and from the conference each day.

For purposes of discussion, I extended the interactive graphics sample from the Esri Silverlight API interactive SDK. For starters, I added another … Continue reading Simple Annotations With the Esri Silverlight API

DevGeo Session at the Esri FedUC

We are approximately a month away from the Esri Federal User Conference. It is probably the largest geospatially-themed event in the DC/Maryland/Virginia area each year and has gotten bigger each year. I have documented this conference in the past and have pointed out that, despite its name, there is a lot of information that can … Continue reading DevGeo Session at the Esri FedUC

DynamicLayer Auto-Refresh for ESRI Silverlight API

Despite recent news regarding Silverlight, I expect some of my projects to continue using it for the near term. Others may be taking the same tack, so I thought I’d go ahead and offer this up. Several of the projects I support have the requirement to periodically refresh specific layers in order to track change … Continue reading DynamicLayer Auto-Refresh for ESRI Silverlight API
