Esri launches ArcGIS Field Maps mobile app
Esri, a global leader in location intelligence, today announced the launch of the ArcGIS Field Maps mobile app.
An all-in-one app that uses data-driven maps to help mobile workers collect and edit data, find information, plus report their real-time locations. ArcGIS Field Maps will solve many workflow challenges for organizations that have prioritized digital transformation from paper-based to digital field operations management.
“In the past, someone working in the field needed several individual apps on a device, each with its own focused purpose to view the organization’s maps, to edit and collect data, and to record location tracks,” said Scott Ball, Esri field operations apps principal product manager. “ArcGIS Field Maps does all this and more—in one place with only one login.”
Organizations deploying mobile personnel will benefit from a single, powerful application that streamlines mobile operations and workflows by reducing the number of tools and optimizing field efficiencies with real-time location.
This new solution also solves a common problem—mobile crews using one set of maps while personnel at headquarters work from another. Additionally, it is a burden for an IT department to maintain and manage multiple apps across a large field workforce.
With ArcGIS Field Maps, everyone involved can see and work from the same data simultaneously—saving time, reducing errors, supporting field workflows and boosting overall efficiency.
This new app also combines three of Esri’s current mobile applications—ArcGIS Collector, ArcGIS Explorer and ArcGIS Tracker—into a single tool and is now available to download on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
