DNRGPS Application DNRGPS er en erstatning for den populære applikasjonen DNRGarmin. Programmet benyttes for å importere data fra en Garmin GPS eller eksportere til en Garmin GPS
DNRGPS is an update to the popular DNRGarmin application. It was initially built to provide users the ability to transfer data between Garmin handheld GPS receivers and GIS software.
MNDNR Export to Image Add-in. ArcGIS 10 Add-In for å eksportere skjermbilde i ArcMap til billedbakgrunn på GPS.
ArcGIS10 Add-in WYSIWYG export of Data View to GPS background map formats
Update Feature Class Extent Denne Add-In er et verktøy for å endre utstrekningen for et kartlag. dette kan være nødvendig hvis en f.eks. har slettet data fra kartlaget sitt. (f.eks. at en hadde to skogeiendommer i kartlaget, den ene i hedmark og den andre i Telemark, og at en nå har slettet eiendomen i Telemark)
This Add-In is a tool for ArcMap that allows you to choose a feature layer in the Table of Contents and update the feature class extent. This is useful for repairing the maximum extent reported by a feature class that has undergone edits that make the extent too large
ET GeoWizards er et sett med kraftige funksjoner som vil hjelpe ArcGIS brukere å manipulere data med letthet. Det gjør at ArcGIS brukere med ArcGIS Basic (ArcView) lisens mulighet til å utføre enkelte oppgaver som normalt bare er mulig med ArcGIS Standard (ArcEditor) og ArcGIS Advanced (ArcInfo). Programmet må kjøpes for å få tilgang til alle muligheter, men en del av verktøyene er tilgjengelig i gratisversjonen
ET GeoWizards is a set of powerful functions that will help the ArcGIS users to manipulate data with ease. It enables the ArcGIS users with ArcGIS Basic (ArcView) licenses to perform some data processing tasks standardly possible only in ArcGIS Standard (ArcEditor) and ArcGIS Advanced (ArcInfo).
CREATE RASTER INDEX SHAPEFILE Create a raster index polygon shapefile from raster extent boundaries that includes raster properties and locations in the attribute table. Read all image files from one folder and, optionally, its subfolders. Option to project polygons from different spatial references to WGS84 to index rasters with various projections together in one shapefile. Raster attributes in shapefile include file name, file path, format, compression type, pyramid layers present, number of bands, pixel type, spatial reference, units, pixel size, number of columns and rows, and minimum and maximum X and Y coordinates. Progress bars indicate how many files and folders have been processed. Text box shows current folder and file and any error messages. Errors saved to log file help identify bad or corrupt image files or images without projections defined. Installationfile included.
Legend Limiter 3 for ArcGIS 9.3+ The Legend Limiter 3 plug-in for ArcGIS v9.3+ (also available for 8.2/8.3/9.0/9.1/9.2) is a powerful tool that automatically limits the symbols displayed in a categorised legend to just those found within the map’s visible extent.
* Very useful for producing maps with relevant legends!
* No more scrolling through pages of legend symbols in the table of contents!
The Legend Limiter only works on layers that use "unique value categories" to define symbology. This style of legend can be set up in the Symbology tab of the Layer Properties dialog. Legend Limiter will not limit the symbology of layers set up with single symbol symbology.
ArcGIS to Powerpoint This tool is designed as a productivity enhancement for the ArcGIS Desktop platform. The tool will take a screen capture of the current view of the running desktop application and it will insert a picture of that view into Microsoft PowerPoint. Ensure that you have either Microsoft Office 2003 or Office 2007 installed on the machine. The tool will be disabled if it cannot find a valid instance of Office.
ArcMap to DXF Export utility Utility to export from shape or geodatabase to DXF (AutoCAD format)
Layer Shuffler Tools. The LayerShufflerTools.dll will add a toolbar for ArcMap that includes 4 layer moving tools: move one step up, move one step down, move to top, move to bottom. The tools operate on the layers that are selected in the table of contents and they can handle one or multiple selected layers. Does NOT handle layers that are grouped, BUT will handle entire groups.
MapTips7 MapTips7 is a maptip tool for displaying up to seven attributes when hovering over a feature. MapTips7 is customizable allowing the user to select a feature layer and up to seven of its
field attributes. Maptips7 is easy to use and a good alternative to the Identify tool for
displaying attribute information quickly.
Vertex Tool Add, move and delete mulitple vertices without popup menus.
Custom Identify. Explore attributes of identified feature along with all the data related to this feature in one identify window. For full setup please read the documentation which is provided.
This tool has the same functionality as the standard identify tool in ArcMap plus another view in the identify dialog where you can see all the data related to the identified feature.
- you can preview all your related data from temporary 'relationship' or
- you can preview all your related data from existing relationship.
This can be specified in the Settings window, once set, the tool remembers the settings which are stored in the XML file.
Tools for Graphics and Shapes This extension includes a large suite of tools for calculating geometric attributes of vector features and for selecting and naming graphics. All tools are available at the ArcView license level.
Among many other functions, this extension offers tools for calculating the true area and centroid of polygons as they lay on the sphere, thereby avoiding errors caused by projection distortions. This extension also offers tools to calculate true lengths of polylines as they lie on the spheroid, using Vincenty’s equations. This manual thoroughly explains all algorithms used to calculate geometric attributes on the sphere and spheroid.
This extension also includes a tool to create a new shapefile from within ArcMap, either by creating an empty shapefile or by converting graphics.
Map Book for ArcMap9.2 The purpose of the Map Book Developer’s Sample is to allow for the creation and output of map books. Map books are multi page documents based on a dataset and an index grid representing the pages. The Index grid for a map book represents how the dataset set should be divided up for plotting at a more workable scale. For instance, if a road atlas is being created, the index grid would represent the individual pages or the atlas. For a Land Records office, the index grid would represent the distribution of 1:400, 1:100, and 1:50 scale maps for the county.
Create Shapefile This interface helps to create shapefiles easily setting layer symbol and adding them for table of contents.
Layer Selectability Toolbar This toolbar is an alternative to ArcMap's "Set Selectable Layers" tool, and It allows you to set/clear all selectable layers and also set/clear the highlighted layers in the TOC. More easy to use than ArcMap's own routine.
ArcPad 7 toolbar can not be hidden in ArcMap The toolbar visibility is not saved in ArcPad 7, which prevents hiding the ArcPad toolbar.
Cause: There is a .dll registration issue that prohibits permanently setting the toolbar's visability.
Software: ArcGIS - ArcEditor 9.0, 9.1, 9.2 ArcGIS - ArcInfo 9.0, 9.1, 9.2 ArcGIS - ArcView 9.0, 9.1, 9.2 ArcPad 7.0, 7.0.1

DNR Garmin GPS Extension for ArcGIS 9 This extension allows users pass data between a Garmin GPS receiver and ArcView 9.x. Now with USB connectivity support. It was built to provide users the ability to directly transfer data between Garmin GPS handheld receivers and various GIS software packages. Using this program a user can use point features (graphics or shapefile) and upload them to the GPS as Waypoints. Line and Polygon Graphics or shapes can be uploaded to the GPS as Track Logs or Routes. Conversely, Waypoints, Track Logs, and Routes collected using the GPS can be transferred directly to ArcView/ArcMap/Google Earth/Landview and saved as Graphics or Shapefiles.

Biodrivstoff er framstilt av biologisk materiale, og kan brukes istedenfor bensin og diesel fra fossil olje. Biodrivstoff kan bidra til å redusere klimagassutslippene fra transport.
Kritiske til Helgesens ulveforslag
Onsdag 22. februar sendte Klima- og miljøminister Vidar Helgesen ut et forslag om å endre Naturmangfoldloven på høring. Mens ministeren hevder at endringen vil gi utvidet adgang til uttak av ulv ved lisensfelling mener Bondelaget at lovforslaget i realiteten vil kunne innsnevre dagens handlingsrom.
