why can't I find a forum for "arcgis for desktop" or "arcmap" ? where's the place for such questions?
Sure it is called GIS
See this doc:
GeoNet Community Structure
GIS is probably being closed as a dumping ground since it is too coarse just like the old Discussion Place.
Timothy Hales will need to confirm
Hi, this post might help to show you how things are organized on the GeoNet:
GeoNet Community Structure
Usually things are a little more specified than just ArcMap, etc.
Check out the GIS place for general and mostly Desktop related GIS: GIS
UGH finally some logic sorry I guess I had no idea how this site works. I'll start moving threads now. thanks!
See my comment to Robert
Thanks. I thought I can choose a place under GIS but I see I can't so I'm still not clear on that
check the link and it's pdf... GIS is the main level... the second column is the second level and the 3rd column is the 3rd level. So it you had a question about clipping, unioning etc you would want to put it in Geoprocessing
There is not one for the ArcGIS for Desktop product. Although there has been some talk about adding one, most people post based upon what they are trying to do. Here are a few examples:
You've probably found this document already and noticed no particular space for ArcMap of ArcGIS for Desktop: GeoNet Community Structure.
I'll admit, I don't entirely get the point of spaces whatsoever, but for questions about ArcMap I would put it in the most specific and relevant space level. Perhaps your question is about "GIS", or more specifically, "Analysis". In my opinion, tags, title, and properly describing your issue are more important than space.
It isn't about the software it is about what you want to do with it. From here GeoNet Community Structure
Now the ones in yellow are documents on the first link the ones in purple are user create location which you can join.
It takes a while. The site has to move away from GIS as a main link, since it isn't fine-grained enough be of any use for someone looking for answers about a particular topic.
Hope this gives some insight
Thanks for all the comments, I can't say it's an intuitive or user friendly way of organization, but I see what it's trying to do.
I have a few conceptual questions which I'm not sure where to put that makes it complicated for me to decide, such as - Best practice for G.I.S. data experts versus I.T. managers / managing data in an organization
It would be easier for me to just relate it to a product rather than guessing what's the related title I believe.
or another example I'm not sure where to post - Portal for ArcGIS testing environment - duplicating prod
You can always speak with us!!
Have a nice day
