Timing its announcement with the start of the annual Esri International User Conference, Esri has announced the launch of GeoNet, the Esri Community which the GIS software maker describes as a place “where you can share, chat, and collaborate on all things geo. It’s your chance to connect with other geospatial enthusiasts around the world. GeoNet is a social business platform where you can collaboratively create projects with others and read about best practices. Join now and you’ll be able to interact with Esri staff and your peers anytime, anywhere.”
To participate, users will need to create an Esri account (free) if they don’t already have global Esri account. Esri has migrated all of its discussion forums to GeoNet so peer support for ArcGIS and other Esri products can now be found in this new section of Esri’s web site.
