ArcGIS Server – Now faster and prettier in 9.3.1?
I have to say that I am intrigued by this announcement about improvements in 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.
