Rich Internet Application(RIA) technology, such as Flash, has been around for a number of years. But it has only been within the last year that ESRI and ArcGIS Server has provided the ability to effectively build a Flash-based GIS viewer. Through the use of the 9.3 Flex API, you can now build highly advanced and interactive GIS web portals that include functionality that was previously extremely difficult or not even possible to provide. This presentation will focus on the recent development of a GIS portal using the 9.3 Flex API as well as the benefits of using this technology.
