On Tuesday, the ArcGIS Online sharing application service has been opened up for a public beta:
6/30/09–Have you ever wanted to share some of your great maps with
the rest of the world? Or maybe just easily share some of your work
with a colleague? Well, the new ArcGIS Online sharing application, now open for public beta access, can be used as a system for sharing,
finding and using GIS content across the Web. With ArcGIS Online, you
can upload maps, register online map services, create and save Web maps
as items for others to share, and discover and use maps published by
ESRI and other ESRI users. You can organize and control access to the
maps you share by making them public or private, and you can create and
Better sharing of geographic information is enabled in part via new
technology that allows layers referencing feature or raster data to be
packaged into a single "layer package", comprised of both the layer
cartography and data. These layer packages can be shared with other
users via files, e-mail, or the new ArcGIS Online sharing capability.
The new ArcGIS Online sharing services are powered by a full REST API.
The announcement and further information can be found here.
