ArcMap Custom Tools

Posts in this blog are a rare thing. The main problem is that we don’t really have a lot of time, plus we can’t share most things that are being developed in the company that we are currently collaborating with. (not to mention that I am soon to become a dad and thus time will be even more limited)

Nevertheless lately we had among other things to develop some custom tools and add-ins for esri’s ArcMap platform. Although we are usually against developing plugins for non expert users on such complex platforms (we prefer developing a standalone engine based application) due to a lot of restrictions and security mechanisms we were in a sense forced to accept such solution.

Among this solution we developed some simplified editing tools for less expert users. A generalized version of those tools are now available at git-hub.
