The Field Operations capability of the ArcGIS Platform enables you to optimize efficiency in field activities with the power of location intelligence. This capability is offered via a suite of field apps that enables you to bring your maps and the power of GIS into the field.
The ArcGIS field apps include: Collector for ArcGIS, Survey123 for ArcGIS, Workforce for ArcGIS, Navigator for ArcGIS, Explorer for ArcGIS and two new apps: Tracker for ArcGIS and ArcGIS QuickCapture. Next week, the Esri 2019 International User Conference will be held in San Diego, CA. This blog is a short guide to activities at the conference related to field operations in ArcGIS.
The UC Expo area is located on the first floor of the San Diego Convention Center (SDCC) and is where you will find Esri industry neighborhoods, ArcGIS software product areas, partner booths, demo theaters, and booths for technical support, training services, and much more.
The ArcGIS field apps will be in their own “Field Operations” area in the Expo, located among the other ArcGIS product areas. Every field app will have its own dedicated station, staffed by members of the respective Development teams. Please come here to meet with us to learn about the apps, see demos, share your feedback, and get your questions answered.
Formerly known as the Mobile SIG, the Field Operations SIG allows you to hear from your peers on how they have successfully implemented Esri field apps to boost efficiency and productivity in critical activities that are common to field operations.
