Earth Day and ArcGIS Explorer

Yesterday was Earth Day and on the Earth Day Network there is a lot of content available (even if I had trouble finding it) and it is easy to use it with ArcGIS Explorer (AGX).

On ArcGIS Explorer's Blog you'll find how to view NASA's data from Earth Observatory.

Here is an example of swipe tool in action


AGX has a very nice option to add data from a range of sources - ArcGIS Server, ArcIMS, WMS and data stored locally. Here is an dialog for opening files and you can see main groups rather than all supported services and file types.



Speaking of AGX, ESRI has hinted how one of upcoming versions (build 600) will look. The screenshot below shows 'ribbon' interface under Vista.

Functionality wise there isn't much out there. We know it will include both 2D and 3D maps. I guess we can expect AGX relatively soon. For updates head over to the ArcGIS Explorer blog.
