I’m a little behind the curve on this but I’ve had one customer holding out until recently. Now I can finally take the plunge. Who needs sleep? See you on the other side… 😉
How Do You Disable This Dialog in ArcMap?
**UPDATE**Check the comments for the resolution to this. 9.2 offers a registry setting and, since I’m upgrading, I’ll make use of that. I got pretty far on my API hack though. My question is twofold: First: Can you stop this dialog from appearing in ArcMap 9.1? Second: If not, does 9.2 give you the option…
zigGIS 126.96.36.19968 Now Available!
Paolo moves fast! The new installer is available for download at the zigGIS project home. Bear in mind that zigGIS depends on the ArcObjects .NET libraries. A good post on making sure you’ve got them is available here. The last version had over 200 downloads. Please feel free to post feedback at the project site….
zigGIS Update Coming Soon
Things have been a little slow on the zigGIS front for the last few weeks. Both Paolo and I have been incredibly busy at work. We have both made some updates but it’s been hard to pull them together into a coherent release. That’s getting very close now. Enhancements this time around will include: On-the-fly…
Steve has blogged about Clint Brown’s talk at the CA/HI/NV/Guam RUG meeting. There’s nothing particularly suprprising but we’re starting to get dates and features tied to version numbers. I am encouraged that 9.3 will be in beta soon. ESRI’s odd-numbered releases are always more stable. The support for PostgreSQL with ArcSDE is not a surprise….
Desktop? We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Desktop!
I figured I’d pile on here because it seems that a little ganging up may be in order. James and Kirk have posted about the dearth of Desktop sessions at the upcoming Developer Summit. Kirk also provides a good, specific example of a server-only feature that would be useful, and perfectly possible, in Desktop. One…
Derived Geometry Redux
A long time ago, on a blog-hosting site far far away, there was a blog called ArcDeveloper (not to be confused with ArcDeveloper.Net, which came later and did more). That was my first blog. It went in a few different directions. I wasn’t happy with it, so I killed it. There’s nothing to link to…
Paolo has posted an update to zigGIS. This update deals more effectively with data layers that have an SRID associated (SRID != -1). They now seem to overlay well. On-the-fly reprojection is still not working but he is working on it. Archaeogeek recently posted about some issues getting zigGIS to work.
Paolo has created an installer for zigGIS and has also posted an installation guide. He has packaged together all of the correct versions of the supporting components so it solves the problems I described in an earlier post. I would highly recommend using the installer to get started.
zigGIS and Spatial References, Part 2
Update to this post: Another post about zigGIS. I didn’t really intend this blog to be so dominated by zigGIS but that’s certainly the way it’s been thus far. Basically, it’s just really cool and it satisfies my geek nature on a couple of fronts. After posting about the spatial reference issue before, I couldn’t…
