ArcGIS for Local Government 10.1 is now available. This latest release includes an update to each application along with a new local government information model that you can use with ArcGIS 10.1.
With the release of ArcGIS 10.1 we have been busy helping customers with licensing.
ArcGIS for Desktop 10.1 provides the ability to upgrade a currently installed and authorised system from ArcGIS for Desktop 10 to ArcGIS for Desktop 10.1.
This applies for both concurrent and single use licenses. A walk-through is now available to help customers when upgrading licenses.
ArcGIS for Server 10.1 licenses cannot be upgraded and new ECP files are required to authorise the ArcGIS for Server 10.1.

“One way to describe it — and here’s a big sentence — is that ArcGIS Online is a mapping platform, a new geospatial enterprise platform but especially focusing in on mapping,” said Esri founder and President Jack Dangermond in a phone interview with Computerworld (see related story). “It has other services in there, like geocoding services across the enterprise or spatial analysis services that can be deployed across the enterprise, but the basic thing that most people recognize it for is that it has really cool maps.
Demand is increasing for web-based applications that give your colleagues and the public the ability to obtain the results of geospatial analysis online.
You can provide these types of applications using geoprocessing services authored using ArcGIS for Desktop and published with ArcGIS for Server from Esri.
During this seminar which will take place on Thursday, June 21, 2012, you will find out how to use the new ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop and ArcGIS 10.1 for Server releases to author and publish geoprocessing services and use those services in web applications.
There will be three offerings at: 9:00 am, 11:00 am, and 3:00 pm PDT (U.S. & Canada).
