Esri Developer Network
Esri Developer Network (EDN) - a set of licenses to a certain set of software and data application development platform for ArcGIS.
However, when buying products EDN you get invited to participate in some beta-testing programs, and access to new tools and development technologies available only for subscribers of EDN.
Mostly EDN is purchased for three products: ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS for Server and ArcGIS for Desktop - despite the fact that the composition includes EDN and other products.
- ArcGIS Engine Developer Kit to develop desktop applications can only be purchased as part of EDN;
- ArcGIS for Server can be purchased separately or as part of a set of EDN. In the composition of EDN ArcGIS for Server costs much more cheaply, but there are limitations on use only for testing, development and demonstration of customer applications;
- ArcGIS for Desktop can be purchased separately or as part of a set of EDN. Depending on the problem to be solved by the developers and license lrvel of ArcGIS for Desktop, purchase of ArcGIS for Desktop as part of EDN can be much cheaper than buying it as a separate product. This will have limitations on the use only for testing, development and demonstration of customer applications.
Many products for application development not included in the set of EDN. Information about them can be found at the ArcGIS for Developers portal.
