Most of you all have already probably noticed that Esri has transformed their old support forums into a new and exciting community endeavour – GeoNet.
So what is GeoNet?
GeoNet is the place where you can share, chat, and collaborate on all things Geo. It’s your chance to connect with other geospatial enthusiasts around the globe. GeoNet is more than just a new forums location. Forums now are only a part of a larger community. This community is there as a tool to help you, the GIS user. You can upload files, collaborate on documents, upload files, write blog posts, share videos and much more.
So what are the cool new features of GeoNet?
Well the first thing you will notice when logging in with your ArcGIS account is a recent activity feed. Here you can see all the most recent updates from everyone in GeoNet – similar to a twitter or Facebook feed. The next big tick from me is your own profile page. Here you can upload a profile pic, create an avatar; add a bio about yourself and note your skills and expertise.
