Arc2Earth Now Creates Map Tiles for Google Maps and Virtual Earth

arc2earth-logo.gifBrian Flood has a very interesting post on the new big feature of Arc2Earth. The ability to create map tiles of maps that you’ve created in ArcMap and publish them to the web. Brian has figured out a way to simply do this using Amazon S3 for storage and either the Google Maps, Virtual Earth or even OpenLayers. The result is a web based map, that can utilize cartography that you create in ArcMap, that requires NO SERVER SOFTWARE. Plus Arc2Earth is smart enough to create markers from any layers you choose to give your new web map more functionality. Brian is looking for existing users of Arc2Earth to volunteer for the beta. Roll over to Brian’s blog to see how this all works. I’m excited to see how this works.
