ArcGIS Workflow Manager Product Owner, Michael Broadbent, and Technical Lead Kevin Bedel presented a comprehensive introduction of the exciting things to come!
The response to our earlier abbreviated 6 minute overview video of the New 10.8.1 ArcGIS Workflow Manager Server and web app was so positive that we decided to record and distribute the full length FedGIS overview for additional context!!

In April 2017 a cross-business project team from Ordnance Survey (OS) started work to fully automate the map production of OS VectorMap Local.


On 18 October 2018 the new automated derived version of OS VectorMap Local, which is a world leading first by OS, was released to customers!
