EGIS Gateway is an ArcMap application which advertises available GIS data layers and maps. The purpose of the tool is to inform users of new developments in the enterprise GIS database and other available advertised databases.

EGIS Gateway displays a dialog that lists a catalog of published GIS data layers, maps, and announcements describing new additions to these items that have become available since the last ArcMap activation. EGIS Gateway uses RSS and ArcMap layer files to provide access to live GIS data presented with standardized symbolization and labeling options. Layers are classified in a taxonomy according to conceptual groupings. GIS layers, metadata, and map documents are directly accessible through EGIS Gateway.
