ESRI-Avenue is a discontinued programming language for the customization of ESRI geographic information system products. Introduced in the early 1990s with ArcView GIS, it was superseded by Visual Basic and other languages when ArcGIS 8.3 was released in 2001. ESRI-Avenue provided users with an interface for creating dialogs, buttons, and scripts that could be added to ArcView GIS for automating workflow and extending its functionality beyond what was possible with built-in tools alone. It operated within Esri's proprietary framework and limited developers to a specific set of functionalities — a constraint that became less practical as general-purpose languages such as Python gained traction within GIS development environments.
