Good afternoon,

OTIS is pleased to announce the new DataMiner and Tool Bar for your ArcGIS Desktop 10.2.  Staff will be preparing the new tools for deployment next Thursday evening (June 5th)  so that the update will be ready to use Friday June 6th.  Instructions to add the toolbar and new functionality details will follow soon in a GIS_L e-mail.  Please bookmark the instructions e-mail for reference.  If you know of any GIS users that may not have received this GIS-L announcement, please forward this e-mail to them because the old DataMiner Addin will no longer work after the Friday June 6th upgrade.

This new update brings you improved functionality that includes:

  *   All FDEP tools will now be contained within a new 'DEP Toolbar'
  *   Productivity tools and shortcuts to resources
  *   New Program Area buttons (DEAR, FCO)
  *   Access to external Web Services
  *   Metadata Lite!

During the Spring 2014 GIS Division Coordinator's Meeting, OTIS announced the software update plan shown below.  Please take time to upgrade your desktop software to version 10.2 if you have not yet done so. This new DataMiner tool suite will not run on version 10.

Please address any questions to the GIS team  GIS.Librarian at<mailto:GIS.Librarian at>   Please do not contact the FDEP Service Desk as all GIS questions are sent to the GIS team.  Additionally, user trying to access GIS services after hours may experience service interruptions the evenings of May 29th and 30th.

We are excited to bring these new tools to your desktop and look forward to adding additional functionality later this summer. Try a new web service, search for a new data layer, try the tool bar or check out the short and sweet meta data lite for your favorite layer!

Regards.  Kim
