Sync – Connect ArcGIS Desktop to GIS Cloud Services
Arc2Earth Sync is a companion program to the main Arc2Earth extension running inside ArcGIS Desktop. It’s main purpose is to create and manage client side caches of online GIS Cloud services that can be used seamlessly inside ArcMap. In short, it’s a connector between the ArcGIS ecosystem and other external GIS and Geospatial services (called Table Providers). It serves as:
- A connector to external GIS Cloud Services
- A connector to external GIS Servers
- A multi-user editor cache for File Sharing Services like DropBox and Google Drive (e.g. share shapefiles or File Geodatabases for small projects and all users can safely edit the layers)
Sync can be best described as a dynamic, client side cache for your online GIS data. Display and editing occurs against the local cache, remote and local updates are applied automatically.
- Sync maintains a local File Geodatabase cache of your online data.
- Full, Incremental and OnDemand synchronization from online services. Download the entire layer or stream the data based on your current map view.
- Deep integration with ArcGIS Desktop (ArcGIS 9.2 – 10.2, Basic Edition or greater)
- Use ArcMap’s native editing tools just like any of your other local data. Updates are applied to the service when an internet connection is available
- Services: Google Maps Engine, CartoDB, Fulcrum, ArcGIS Online for Organizations
- Servers: ArcGIS Server (10.0+) Feature Services and GeoServer WFS-T
- File Sync Services: DropBox and Google Drive.
- Demo Editing Videos for Google Maps Engine and ArcGIS Online

Create Map Tile Caches
Dramatically improve the time it takes to display complex maps. Create map title caches for Google Maps, Leaflet, OpenLayers, ArcGIS Server and Mapbox.
- Export tiles to a local machine, your MapBox account or Amazon S3
- Command Line Tools: Integrate tile creation and maintenance into your own workflow
- Multi Cutters: Automatically use multiple tile cutter processes on multi-core CPUs
- Change Detection: Minimize tile maintenance time with automatic routines to detect where data has changed in your cache
- Open your MXD Documents in TileMill using TileMill Connect. Converts your entire map into CartoCSS.
- Tile Formats: Google, Bing, ArcGIS Server, MBTiles (MapBox, TileStream) and TMS
