History

ArcView 8.x and 9.x
ArcView 8.x and 9.x are part of the ArcGIS Desktop software suite. ArcView is the entry level of licensing offered, it is able to
view & edit GIS data held in a flat file database or, through ArcSDE, * ST-Links PgMap view data held in a relational
database management system. Other licensing levels in the suite, namely ArcEditor and ArcInfo have greater functionality. All
components are installed on the system, with only those that are licensed being made functional. The current version of
ArcView sold by Esri is 10.
The ArcView software is split between ArcMap & ArcCatalog. ArcMap is used for map composition and geographic analysis.
ArcCatalog is used for geographic data management.
