Esri Wins 2012 Visual Studio Magazine's Readers Choice Awards
Printer Friendly versionPrinter Friendly


Redlands, California - December 6, 2012 - Esri won twice in the Mapping and GIS Components category of Visual Studio Magazine's (VSM's) 2012 Readers Choice Awards. ArcGIS API for Silverlight received second place, and ArcGIS for Desktop received third place.

"We're honored to see our mapping tools acknowledged for the third straight year by VSM readers," says Jack Dangermond, Esri president. "It's gratifying to see the developer community take advantage of our powerful, easy-to-use solutions for incorporating geographic information into applications."

Esri created ArcGIS API for Silverlight for developers who want to create web-based mapping applications quickly and easily with minimal coding. Many governments and businesses use the API because it provides an intuitive framework for creating geographic information system (GIS) web applications, such as data portals and interactive map viewers, and combines multiple technologies into a single development platform. Esri received the same recognition for the API in the 2011 VSM Readers Choice Awards.

This is the second year Esri has received recognition for ArcGIS for Desktop in the Mapping and GIS Components category. ArcGIS for Desktop is a complete system for producing, analyzing, and sharing maps and geographic information.

The VSM Readers Choice Awards are based on the responses of hundreds of select VSM subscribers. The online ballot, which was compiled by the editors of VSM, included more than 400 products.

The winners are highlighted in the November 2012 issue of Visual Studio Magazine. Visit Visual Studio Magazine to see the full list of award recipients.
