Features common and not common to Web Map Analysis and GoogleEarth
haven't seen anything.. perhaps comparing the data date differences would be a good start
Thanks for responding. I've searched around on blogs, university sites, etc., and haven't found anything. ESRI is promoting ArcGIS Earth as the comparable app.
Google Earth doesn't do any analysis (aka "geoprocessing"), only data visualization with some attribute reporting and linked information (URLs to web sites, pictures, and such). Same with ArcGIS Earth as of version 1.2, so far as I can tell.
Web Map Analysis (Perform analysis—ArcGIS Online Help | ArcGIS) adds geoprocessing to the ArcGIS Online web mapping capabilities that largely cover all Google Earth capabilities.
SFWMD is going with ArcGIS Online, Web Maps and Web Apps as we phase out enterprise GE. In preparation for presenting this to users, we are compiling comparisons of functionality. Our team had hoped maybe some of the investigative work had already been done, but it appears not.
Hope all is well. Thanks for responding.
SFWMD's retirement of the Google Earth Enterprise system is good news, especially since Google has retired it. I'd put together a fairly high level comparison without spending too much time as follows:
Should take 4-6 hours of staff time to draft the initial comparison, then untold hours to meet and meet and meet and meet.
I miss working with each and every one of you. SFWMD rocks geoinfo.
Thanks for your outline of procedures. We are capturing these tests in a spreadsheet comparing functionality in GE, Basic Web Map, Web Map with ANALYSIS, SCENE and Web Apps (Widgets). Will be developing in-house demos and training for users.
You can put your mind to rest regarding historical imagery. (Ha! You are so dedicated that after all this time, you are still concerned about our imagery.) We now have storage space available for all. Have been working on inventory and migrating all to central repository.
