There is no clip analysis tool available within the default application, however you can create your own clip geoprocessing service and use that within ArcGIS Explorer. See the following links below: Using geoprocessing services in ArcGIS Explorer for Windows Desktop Geoprocessing service example: Clip And Ship

If your organization have obtained ArcGIS Server license, then you have access to Data and Maps for Server, which includes map cache for several Esri basemaps that you can use offline including, but not limited to, World Imagery. The World Imagery will only be available down to the 1:1million scale, and must be served by an ArcGIS server instance, so won't ...

Unfortunately, you cannot open .mxd files in ArcGIS Explorer You can open these item types in ArcGIS Explorer Desktop: ArcGIS Explorer document (.nmf) ArcGIS Explorer application configuration (.ncfg) ArcGIS layer (.lyr) ArcGIS layer package (.lpk) ArcGIS Explorer layer (.nmc) ArcGIS Explorer add-in (.eaz) ArcGIS Server service Web map Please see this ...

mxd map document cannot be opened in ArcGIS Explorer. You can add layer packages and data such as some but not all ArcGIS online basemaps, OGIS web mapping service (WMS) data, a KML/KMZ files, geodatabases, shapefiles, GPX, and rasters JPEG 2000, GeoTIFF, MrSID rasters. As for layer packages; these have to be first created and uploaded into ArcGIS online ...

ArcMap and ArcExplorer (not to be confused with ArcGIS Explorer) are 2D clients and cannot consume a globe service. You'll need to use a 3D client like ArcGlobe or ArcGIS Explorer to use your globe service.

Use the Cost Distance and Cost Path Tools from the Spatial Analyst Extension. You can create a Raster from your Hydrography Polygons. Then assure that the raster cells that represent water get a low value (e.g. 1) and the other raster cells get a high value (e.g. 1000). You can then use this raster as cost distance raster in the Cost Path Tool.

I'll be honest, I don't know Google Earth Pro at all really. However, I know ArcGIS Explorer Desktop. It is a very useful program for me and my organization. It has a relatively wide variety of capabilities compared to at least what I'd expect for a free program from a commercial software company like ESRI. It can consume a wide variety of GIS datasets ...

I might be a little late to this party, but I put together a couple of simple python scripts to download map tiles by extent. In my case, I hooked the scripts up as django management commands which wrote to a sqlite database. This first post is about tile urls for various map content providers: http://bcdcspatial.blogspot.com/2012/01/onlineoffline-mapping-...

If there is no particular reason why you want to create your own Identify tool, then I think it would work to just: Use the "HTML pop-ups" tool or Use Hyperlinks within your attribute table or Add raster datasets as attributes in a feature class to your database.

Without reading all of your question I will guess the answer! You are sending a complete T-SQL 'SELECT' statement when the QueryFilter WhereClause property is just that - a where clause (what comes after the 'WHERE' keyword.) Create a QueryFilter with a valid WhereClause and populate the SubFields property with the fields you want returned.

If exporting to excel you would have to be within the limitations of the spreadsheet, which is available on Microsoft help page Worksheet size 1,048,576 rows by 16,384 columns In addition, you can follow these different methods as outlined by ESRI on their support page here Option A: For ArcGIS for Desktop 10.2 and above, using the Table to Excel ...

Apparently Maplex is not supported by ArcGIS Explorer (I couldn't find this clearly documented anywhere though). What you could do as a workaround is convert your labels to an annotation feature class in ArcMap, then exporting the annotations as layer file. And export the parcels to a .lyr separately, without labels.

I have done something similar for centrelines over canals and natural watercourses. The approach that I used was to TIN the points, bisect the TIN then create a second TIN from the original vertices and the bisectors then traverse using a modified Dijkstra's algorithm discarding options as soon as it is evident that they will not form the most simple ...

UPDATE - 2013-10-01 - SOLVED: gmapcatcher does the trick perfectly. It doesn't read from ESRI World Imagery, but it does download tiles from Bing and others (0.3m in our area) for offline viewing. It's not very feature-rich but that is a big part of the appeal! Learning curve is just about zero. There's probably a fairly easy way to turn those downloaded ...

So what I found was that I set the schema for the Standard_Point. And I can add multiple points with that schema to the input parameter. Likewise it is a matter of having the output parameter defined with the schema of Standard_Polyline and add multiple Polyline objects to the returned parameter. I will edit this with the code once I have that figured out!...

I am adding this for anyone in the future that reads this thread. Here is all that I've learned in digging into this issue and getting a complete distance between points call. Our first issue stemmed from the static nature of RasterCatalog. Changing the rasters that this is based on does NOT change the raster inside the RasterCatalog. It turned out that ...

The solution is to use a different filename. So instead of using 'addin.eaz' for updates, I included the date into the filename, i.e. addin_20131714.eaz' for v1.1 etc. I needed to make sure old .eaz files were deleted from the Addins folder before deploying the update.

You can download a data expansion pack (if that's the correct term) that will allow you to connect to SQL/SDE geodatabases. Remember SDE sits on a database and adds extra functionality (or overhead). At ArcGIS 10.1 data uses SQL geometry or geography natively, so a SQL connection to spatial data should work. You'll also have to make sure your client computer ...

Turns out that this was a driver issue. The graphics card I am running has an issue with its Pixel Shader version. A quick update to my graphics card driver solved it. Thanks for all the input.

To have OpenCycleMap added to ArcGIS Online would involve asking Esri if that would be possible to do. You could do this via its contact form or by submitting an ArcGIS Idea (which I would vote for). An alternative is that ArcGIS Explorer Desktop supports WMS, so if you could find someone providing a service URL for an OpenCycleMap WMS then this could be ...

I have not done any development with ArcGIS Explorer so this is just a suggestion, but take a look at the SDK help and just start tinkering. It looks like a pretty light weight API compared to ArcObjects so it shouldn't be too hard to put something together. Start with the Mapping and Data namespaces and look at some of the "how-to's" such as How to create ...

You might actually be successfully creating the circle, except that your projection appears to distort it. To check, go into 3D, and see if the circle still looks distorted.

Google finds AGX Social - Post your map image on Twitter & Facebook at arcgis.com. But then, when I click on the add-in tag at the bottom of that page, I don't see anything, which seems kind of strange - obviously there is a page with that tag. Update: If I set the Show option to "All Content" ... Then click the "add-in" tag on the page, I get lots ...

ArcGIS Explorer is also available online now http://explorer.arcgis.com/?open=153c17de00914039bb28f6f6efe6d322 If you want to customise your maps you need to have a global esri account. http://blogs.esri.com/Info/blogs/arcgisexplorerblog/archive/2009/08/19/sample-add-ins-at-arcgis-explorer-labs.aspx

You can create an animated theme (layer) in ArcExplorer - KML/KMZ is best supported to do this http://webhelp.esri.com/arcgisexplorer/900/en/time_based_animations.htm You need to create a timeline to have the layer animated. As for graphic create a layered gif or png and add into ArcExplorer as a point feature. For ArcGIS (9.2 onwards) there is the ...

The ArcGIS Data Interoperability document details which data formats are supported by ArcGIS Desktop though its optional Interoperability Extension. There is also a FAQ page and whole section devoted to it.
