Improved field data collection

December 9th, 2013, Published in Articles: PositionIT

pron-esri-151-01New versions of Esri’s Collector for ArcGIS and Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS offer tablet support, improved data management, and include display, configuration, and workflow enhancements that improve field data collection and enterprise oversight. Both apps are available at no cost to Portal for ArcGIS customers and ArcGIS Online subscribers. The updated Collector for ArcGIS, a configurable field data collection app for iOS and Android, expands the types of data that can be collected and now allows the input of GIS features of all primary shape types (e.g. points, lines, and polygons). It allows users to view and control GPS accuracy while capturing features, as well as to stream positions from the GPS as they move. To reduce manual data capture repetition, a continuous collect mode allows users to copy the location or attributes of the last collected feature. Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS’s data handing has been upgraded, and offers an improved list search function. Users can also filter the map and all widgets using relative time, which helps users monitor and analyse data that changes rapidly over time.
