Who uses Esri Production Mapping?
Esri Production Mapping enhances user productivity and improves efficiency for geospatial content producers where standardization, repeatability, and batch processing are key production criteria. It is used by data and map production agencies such as national/commercial mapping organizations, local government, utilities, transportation agencies, defence agencies, and data conversion contractors (and their subcontractors and clients).
How can users from specific industries benefit from using Esri Production Mapping?
Users from various industries can download data models, validation rules, map templates, symbol sets, and additional editing tools from the ArcGIS Resource Center, and configure and use them with their data. These include tools for water/wastewater; transportation, roads, and highways; and national mapping. For the downloads to work properly, Esri Production Mapping must be installed on a user's machine.
Are training courses available for Esri Production Mapping?
Yes. Training courses are offered through Esri's Learning Center. We highly recommend that training be given to key staff who will be using these tools. Customized training is also available and can be conducted at an Esri Learning Center or any appropriately equipped customer site.
Is Esri Production Mapping customizable?
Yes. Esri Production Mapping is designed to be adjustable and extensible to create a flexible environment. It offers Graphic User Interfaces (GUIs) for administrative users to customize their production experience. Users can customize data validation rules, feature symbology, data representations, and batch jobs. Many of the editing, validation, and rendering tools take advantage of modifiable rules stored in the database. By storing the rules in the database, you can easily develop new products and modify existing products to meet your database requirements.
