ArcPad was originally called MapPad and had approximately 200 users in both Australia and the United States. Today it is the most widely adopted mobile GIS handheld software product used around the globe with over 300,000 users. This summer's release of ArcPad 10 is packed with more capabilities than ever before.

ArcPad 10 greatly improves field productivity, helps you manage your GIS projects more efficiently, and provides a better user experience. Here's what to expect with the new release:

ArcPad includes advanced tools for finding, creating, and updating GIS information. ArcGIS Desktop provides checkout and check-in management of ArcPad data and maps, while the ArcGIS Server ArcPad extension can be used to synchronize edits with the enterprise geodatabase directly from the field.

ArcPad Studio, which was included in core ArcPad software at version 8, is the development framework to create projects tailored to an organization's specific workflow. You can take advantage of industry-specific templates, applets, and add-ins in ArcPad Studio to build custom applications.
