That was fantastic! I love it.

I'm going to send that out to my staff, telling them I expect something similar next year - completely choreographed with a dance.
(They could use some humor on a Friday :lol:)

I got the lyrics! Now we can all sing along!

Mademoiselles and Monsieurs, it is with deepest pride
and greatest pleasure that we welcome you today
And now we invite you to relax, let us pull up some
chairs as the city staff proudly presents -
your maps
G - I - Yes! G - I - Yes!

Put our map service to the test
Pull a chair up to the screen, Cherie
And we provide the rest
Raster data
Feature classes
Why, we make it for the masses
3-D Viewer
My oh my!
Don’t believe me? Ask ESRI!
Unlike New York, Detroit, or Boston
After all, Miss, this is Austin
An analysis is never second best!
Go to the layout menu
Take a glance and then you'll

Tools and Tricks
X and Y
Pan and Zoom, Identify!
We'll georeference with flair
Coordinate on-the-fly
You're confused
Maybe scared
But the geodatabase is prepared
No one's gloomy or complaining
While the Macro’s calculating
We add labels! We do tricks!
With our Spatial Analyst
And you can print it out
on paper size ANSI E
Come on and lift your glass
You've won your own free pass

If you're stressed
It's Web Viewer we suggest
Life is so unnerving
When the server isn’t serving
ArcMap has no connection to rely on
The coverages are trapped, and we can’t use them
And all of our base layers fail to draw (Noooo!)
ArcMap is not responding!
Our task is getting daunting!
We are left without a chance to use our skills!
An error message apologizes for the inconvenience...
The exclamation marks disappear!!
We keep mapping, don’t you fear!!
G-I-Yes! G-I-Yes!

Get your worries off your chest
Let us say for your .mxd
We've an array; may we suggest
Add the contours! Add the parcels!
Don’t fear for our metacarpals
It's a treat for a technician
Don't believe me? It’s our mission!
Convert to graphics! Create new feature!
Impress your old geography teacher
How could anyone be gloomy or depressed?
We'll make you shout "encore!"
And send us out for more!
Please, G-I-YES!
