While waiting for ArcGIS Server to cut my tile cache, I thought I’d look at who is exhibiting at the 2009 ESRI User Conference. A couple caught my eye.
- BlackBerry – If only they were going to demo a real ESRI API on their phone.
- DeLorme – I’m really interested in seeing their ArcGIS Online map service. Great worldwide cartography is worth paying for.
- Microsoft – .NET 4.0, SQL Server 2008 Spatial and Visual Studio 2010 are much more interesting than Microsoft Maps for Enterprise. (side note for ESRI/Microsoft – Silverlight is dead to me until it can print)
- Pictometry – I’m a sucker for those oblique views
- Safe Software – FME is the key for really sharing ESRI data with the world
- TouchTable – Every year I look and wish I could have one.
Who is missing? Sun and I assume it is because they are now Oracle. I didn’t see Google either as well (nor SketchUp).
