ESRI, has announced the ArcReader 8.2 stand-alone version is now available for download at www.esri.com/arcreader. ArcReader is designed for viewing and sharing any published map file (PMF) authored by the ArcGIS Publisher extension to ArcView, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo.
ArcReader significantly increases access to maps throughout all parts of an organization. Anyone with ArcReader can now view maps that reference a wide variety of geographic data. The PMF preserves a live connection to the data so the user’s data view is dynamic.
ArcReader is built from the same ArcObjects component technology as ArcView, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo. ArcReader shares a common look and feel with all the ArcGIS Desktop products, allowing users to easily view, explore, and print maps.
