Esri Confirms 400 million user-gen maps on ArcGIS.com in October

Today many in the geotwittersphere were excited about a tweet from Tim O’Reilly.

Down at ESRI, getting killer demo of arcgis.com. In October, 400 million user-generated maps on the site! Growing exponentially.

Some found that stat too high. Sean Gorman of FortiusOne tweeted:

ESRI seriously wants us to believe that 400 million maps were made on ArcGIS.com in a month? There are only 344 million internet users in NA

One of Gorman’s colleagues, Andrei Taraschuk looked at Compete.com, a site analytics tool, and tweeted:

According to @timoreilly, arcgis.com grew by 400M maps in October - that adds to about 12,500 maps per visitor http://bit.ly/eRTaM0

I contacted Esri to confirm Mr. O’Reilly didn’t mishear or mistweet. The 400 million number for October was indeed correct.

I found this tweet from a follower of Mr. O’Reilly, Ian Wilker, interesting, too.

just learned of arcgis.com via @timoreilly — whoah. Web-friendly GIS. Been waiting for something like this for years. Looks revolutionary.”
