ArcGIS Developer Term Glossary


The ArcGIS Developer Term glossary is here! After a lot of feedback from new and existing users, we've finally added a term glossary to help understand the myriad terms associated with being a GIS / Esri developer.

Look for terms throughout the site. If you're unsure of their meaning, simply hover for a quick explanation or click through for its full definition as well as related resources.


Access to the full list of terms can be found at or via the Core Concepts section in Documentation. For the initial launch, we've rolled out some of our most common terminology and will be working to deliver more each week as well as have them accessible throughout more sections of the site.
