New Version of ArcWeb Services for Developers Now Available 6.12.03

ESRI announced the availability of a new version of its collection of ArcWeb Services for developers. This suite of Web services, called ArcWeb for Developers, was previously known as ArcWeb USA.

ArcWeb for Developers is a suite of data and functionality that can be published and accessed over the Web. When users subscribe to ArcWeb for Developers, they can include geographic functionality in their applications without having to host the data or develop any GIS applications themselves. These services use Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), which means they can easily be integrated into any Web page or custom-built Internet application. With the new version of ArcWeb for Developers, a variety of additional functionality and data is available to subscribers. New features include the ability to

  • Do thematic mapping.
  • Perform reverse geocoding.
  • Specify projections.
  • Upload and edit points of interest using SOAP.
  • Turn map layers on and off individually.
  • Obtain driving directions in a variety of languages.
  • Select map styles (for example, users can change the color schemes or optimize the style for speed or for use on a mobile device).

These features build on the capabilities introduced with the first version of ArcWeb Services in December 2002, which include access to dynamic maps, geocoding, place finding, census demographic mapping and reporting, and the ability to upload and maintain user-defined points of interest. ArcWeb for Developers offers access to data from the world's leading data providers including street data, census population data, topographic data, flood data, and more. New data sources are being added all the time.

For more information on ArcWeb for Developers or a free 30-day evaluation, visit or call ESRI at 1-800-447-9778. Outside the United States, contact your local ESRI distributor; see for a current distributor list.
