Submission + - ESRI rolls out ArcGIS mapping, map services for the cloud (computerworld.com)

cweditor writes: ESRI formally unveiled organizational subscriptions for ArcGIS online, in beta since December. ArcGIS online now lets you turn data into a map service with or without a GIS server and adds tools for application development, including both native and HTML 5 support for Android and iOS. Free personal, non-commercial ArcGIS Online accounts continue, but only let you use map services, not create them, and don't include app dev tools.
