ArcGIS Server – Now faster and prettier in 9.3.1?

Posted in ArcGIS, ESRI by viswaug on December 19, 2008

I have to say that I am intrigued by this announcement about improvements in 9.3.1

What’s Coming in ArcGIS 9.3.1?

Especially the coming improvements in the dynamic map publishing below and also the Map Server Document (MSD) format.

High-Performance Dynamic Map Publishing

  • New faster rendering engine
    • Outperforms equivalent ArcIMS services.
    • Produces significantly better-looking maps.
    • Shortens map caching time.
    • Quicker, smoother zoom and pan.
  • New Map Optimization toolbar in ArcMap helps you tune-up your map documents before publishing to ArcGIS Server.
  • Review and respond to errors, unsupported content, and warnings about items that will slow down your dynamic map services.
  • Preview your optimized map document and estimated rendering time.
  • Save your optimized map document to the new Map Server Document (MSD) format.

    I’ll be checking this stuff out in Redlands in early January, but looks really promising.

    Cool Dave. Is that a part of the holistic testing program that ESRI has going?
