버추얼어스가 '빙맵'으로 개편하였습니다

esri사의 공지에 따르면 ArcGIS 9.3버젼에서는 마이크로소프트의 버추얼어스를 삽입하여 다양할 작업을 할 수 있다고 발표 했습니다. 버추얼 어스의 고해상도 영상 및 경사사진을 비롯하여 맵까지 모든 서비스를 ArcGIS 제품군에서 사용 할 수 있다니 정말 반가운 소식입니다.
버추얼 어스에서 제공하는 국내의 영상 및 맵 수준은 아직까지 초보적인 단계라서 실제 연동해서 성과물을 만들어 내기까지는 아직 무리가 있을 듯 합니다. 다만 버추얼 어스가 계속적으로 데이터를 업데이트 하고 있는 과정인지라 향후 놀랄만한 결과물을 만들어 낼 수 있는 기본 플랫폼이 되지 읺을까 전망합니다.

ESRI Expands Virtual Earth Access in GIS by Teaming with Microsoft

ArcGIS Users to Bring Dynamic Basemaps into Analysis and Service Applications

Redlands, California—A new agreement with Microsoft Corporation gives ArcGIS users fast access to Microsoft Virtual Earth for their geographic information system (GIS) projects. As part of ArcGIS Online at the ArcGIS 9.3.1 release, ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Server users will be able to connect directly to Virtual Earth and quickly start their GIS projects with ready-to-use content.

"Our agreement with Microsoft defines a pattern of sharing geospatial data on the Web that promises to grow the GIS community," says ESRI President Jack Dangermond. "By bringing Virtual Earth into their GIS projects, people will have a greater opportunity to perform spatial analysis based on dynamic data."

ArcGIS Desktop users who are current on maintenance and have an Internet connection will have access to Virtual Earth for a variety of up-to-date mapping content including aerial imagery, roads, and hybrid (aerial with labels) imagery. With a familiar look, imagery access will appear as another data layer in GIS. The imagery will provide excellent background maps on which users can overlay their operational data. This means users will be able to focus more on their business data than on its context.

For example, an electric utility can layer its distribution line data over a Virtual Earth aerial view of a neighborhood to create a map of its lines and customer connections. This Virtual Earth background layer is useful for editing the company's data and can be easily shared online with other company users.

ArcGIS users can build Web applications that support geospatial services through ArcGIS Server and ArcGIS Web software developer kits (SDKs), including APIs for JavaScript, Flex, and Microsoft Silverlight. This enables them to provide their clients with access to Virtual Earth content from their applications.

"ESRI and Microsoft share a long history of building geographic information systems solutions that combine both of our companies' strengths," says Chris Sampson, director of Virtual Earth at Microsoft. "By integrating Microsoft Virtual Earth across all ESRI ArcGIS products, we can provide our mutual customers with spatial analysis software that has instant access to comprehensive geographic data that can only be found in a software plus services solution."

The agreement provides no-cost access to Virtual Earth content for ArcGIS Desktop 9.3.1 users on maintenance and a free 90-day Virtual Earth evaluation to ArcGIS Server users. After the 90-day evaluation, deployment for ArcGIS Server can be purchased through ESRI. In addition to the Virtual Earth map services, ArcGIS Server users will also be able to leverage Virtual Earth geocoding and place-finding capabilities.
