22.214.171.124 (talk) 14:27, 3 August 2010 (UTC)ESRI Main: Environmetal System Research Institute. The ESRI in the article is another entity. Unless someone cares to write more about Jack Dangermond, I propose we merge his entry with ESRI (as per an earlier vote on the subject). 14 Dec 05 ucsbalan
- Oppose. Doesn't make sense to me, to merge. The article about Jack Dangermond is more biographical, with details that aren't appropriate in the ESRI article, which is about the company. --Aude 03:39, 15 December 2005 (UTC)
- Oppose. The ESRI article should be separate from the bio article on the owner/founder. --Ray 13:21, 21 December 2005 (UTC)
I now agree with Aude and Ray. The Jack Dangermond has been expanded; it's appropriate as an independent article. I rescind the MERGE proposal. --ucsbalan
ArcGIS 9.2 has not been released and will probably not be out for another four months. I think this is premature. IRing2s 20:45, 2 February 2006 (UTC)
- You are right about that, so I have reverted the article back to saying 9.1 is the current version.-Aude (talk | contribs) 21:40, 2 February 2006 (UTC)
I've added a sentence on the naming, to include "ArcMap" as this is the name on the application most users will run, the name they see on the splash screen as it fires up. I've been an ESRI user for years, and I am CONFUSED with all the names
- It is confusing. I'll give it a try and others can correct my mistakes. When you buy a licences of Arc (either ArcView, ArcEditor, or ArcInfo) you actually get three programs, ArcMap, ArcCatalog, and ArcToolbox. The level of licence (ArcView, ArcEditor, or ArcInfo) determines what level of functionality you get with the programs (ArcMap, ArcCatalog, and ArcToolbox). So, if I buy ArcView, I get ArcMap, ArcCatalog, and ArcToolbox, just like the person who buys ArcInfo. However, when I open my ArcMap, I will be able to do less analysis on the data than the person who has ArcInfo when they open their ArcMap. So, everyone gets the three programs, ArcMap, ArcCatalog, and ArcToolbox, you just get different functions/features with the different licences levels.
- Are you more or less confused now? Dodgens 16:35, 1 August 2006 (UTC)
- No, I think you've just about cracked it, 3 programs, called ArcGIS collectively. 3 Licence levels that control what each can do. All programs interact with the others. Now to put that into Wiki terms for the article! --C Hawke 18:30, 1 August 2006 (UTC)
ArcGIS 9.2 released
I've amended the page to update it for the fact that ArcGIS 9.2 shipped in November 2006. I've also clarified the product naming and history a little. I stress that although I work for ESRI, I'm posting here as an private individual with an interest in the GIS and mapping industry, not speaking for the company.
I've amended the page a little to reflect the apparent fact that the preferred pronunciation is to speak the letters. My experience is that an ESRI-ite will upon hearing "ezri" be careful in the reply to spell out the name of the company. I have no idea if this is a request from the company for branding or some other purpose, but it's definitiely the custom. I just re-ordered the two pronunciations to make the preferred one first. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jlhollin (talk • contribs) 18:37, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
The external links section lists ESRI homepages for foreign countries. This is the American version of the Wiki. I don't think these links are prudent to this article. --Mjrmtg (talk) 19:49, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
The conference article had the pronunciation as /ɛzriː/ rather than /ɛsriː/. This one erroneously had a double /ss/ - was that an attempt to avoid the /z/? — kwami (talk) 22:34, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
In the second paragraph, the line "In 2009 Esri had approximately a 30 percent share of the GIS software market worldwide, more than any other vendor." is cited with article #. Article # is from 2002 and does not include any facts or figures from 2009. There is no revision history indicating that it has been updated anytime after the initial release.
