ArcReader provides GIS users with a method to share electronic maps locally, over networks, and on the Internet. ArcReader preserves a live connection to data so your data view is dynamic. This also makes ArcReader useful for publishing maps based on ArcIMS or Geography Network services.
A published map is the fundamental component you work with in ArcReader. Maps help you visualize geographic data by showing you where things are, telling you what they are, and helping you understand why they are that way.
Published maps serve a variety of purposes. Maps may be interactive and can be browsed or queried, while others are formatted for display and printing. Every map can have a unique look, including both its graphic layout and interface, tailored to those who will ultimately use the map.
