Full Audio Podcast - Episode 12 - Spatial Report

On March 1st, ArcMap entered the Mature Support phase of its product life cycle. This marks the last milestone before the upcoming retirement of ArcGIS Desktop. For ArcMap users, now is a great time to plan the transition to ArcGIS Pro. To help us understand what this all means for those who are still using ArcMap, we are joined by our good friend Erica Morra. She is the Director for Product Management at Esri Canada. And we are thrilled to welcome our newest GeoGeek! But he’s not a new voice to this pod. Brandon Wheatley was one of our first guests, and now he is our resident ArcGIS Online GeoGeek. He drops by to share some of the newest features and enhancements in the February 2024 release of ArcGIS Online, including Map Viewer, ArcGIS Instant Apps, ArcGIS Data Pipelines and ArcGIS Business Analyst Web App.
