We are in the process of slowly rolling out the latest version of the GIS Hub Explorer, which is a mapping application that allows one to view data that reside on the ND GIS Hub. Both of our loyal readers of this blog are some of the first to hear of this new version. In the very near future, the news of this new Hub Explorer will be posted on the ND GIS listserv and on the ND GIS website.
The Hub Explorer goes back almost a decade. The first version relied on Esri's ArcIMS for the map service and used a modified version of Esri's HTML Viewer for the interface. The second and current version relied on ArcIMS for the map service and Latitude Geographic's IMF for the interface.
The new Hub Explorer has been tested on a number of browsers including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and with limited testing on Opera and Safari. Please note that if you use Internet Explorer we highly recommend that you use version 9 as there are performance and other issues with versions prior to 9.
We plan to transition from the current version of the Hub Explorer to the new version over the next couple of months.
If you get a chance, please have a look at the new Hub Explorer !
