This is really gonna be a game changer. For sure it is gonna bring spatial thinking to every home and every desktop. Esri Maps for Office is an add-in piece of App to Microsoft Office, introducing awesome mapping capabilities directly within Excel and PowerPoint.
Now you can easily create, share and present interactive maps from within your Excel and PowerPoint.
It is quite cool that you can now include even dynamic and interactive maps as slides in your PowerPoint and interact with them as you present.
For me, this is a smart move from Esri, bringing geography and spatial thinking to every desktop. And actually, this is gonna spread like wildfire becuase MS Office is every where.
