At the International Map Industry Association (IMIA) Americas Conference this year, Esri took home three awards for its entry ArcGIS Apps for the Field. These apps included Workforce for ArcGIS, Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS, Collector for ArcGIS, Navigator for ArcGIS, and Survey123 for ArcGIS. All these apps work in conjunction to form a unified workflow and eliminate paper-based processes, enabling everyone in the field or office to work from the same data, in real time.
“It was a great honor for Esri to take home these awards,” said David Watkins, Esri ArcGIS Desktop product manager, who provided demonstrations of the apps to the judges and was present at the conference to accept the awards.
The awards Esri’s field apps won include the following:
- Best Digital Map Product
- Best Overall Map Award—IMIA Americas Region
- IMIA Global Award
The IMIA Americas Conference was held from November 29 to December 1, 2016, in San Diego, California. IMIA is an association of mapmakers, publishers, geospatial technology companies, location-based service providers, content producers, and distributors that have come together to conduct the business of maps and geography.
The IMIA Global Award recognizes the best products from all three IMIA regions: Europe/Africa/the Middle East, Asia Pacific, and the Americas. The three overall regional winners were judged against each other to decide which represented the best product for the current year. The overall winning entry from the IMIA Americas region, from Esri, was awarded the annual IMIA Global Award.
