ESRI DevSummit 2012 - ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF ArcGIS Runtime is the new lightweight easy to deploy cross platform GIS framework to host your maps, Geoprocessing services and other services. As of this writing, the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF is in BETA 2, but the future for ArcGIS Runtime is bright and it will probably play a big role in stand-alone client applications in the near future. We have been using the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF since November 2011 (Beta 1), and are one of the first groups to actively use it in a project to move an existing Esri-based Win-Forms application to the new Runtime. In this presentation, you will learn how to get started with ArcGIS Runtime and see what we have learned so far. Topics covered include:
A (very) short introduction into the ArcGIS Runtime and how to obtain ArcGIS Runtime •How the ArcGIS Runtime works (behind the scenes) •Debugging approach •Demonstrate an application using ArcGIS Runtime •Executing a Geoprocessing Task (hosted within a GP package) and displaying the results •Current known limitations (due to BETA status) •Tips and Tricks
ESRI DevSummit presentation The best way to access map layers in a Silverlight application is by consuming lightweight services such as the REST endpoints. In many cases, the map data is collected, created, or combined dynamically rather than published statically.
We will demonstrate how to use the Esri Silverlight Software Developer Kit (SDK) to execute a geoprocessor task on the REST endpoint and display the results to the user using two different techniques: a result map service and a dynamically created MapServer service.
The geoprocessor tasks consist of Python scripts based on the ArcGIS API for Python (ArcPy).
We will also discuss some issues we encountered and best practices and show techniques for debugging your Silverlight application when communicating with the different ArcGIS services.
This demonstration is based on a noise modeling application that Foliage developed for one of its customers.
