ArcGIS Mission

Preview of what's coming in ArcGIS Mission 10.9.1

ArcGIS Mission is interconnecting managers and responders and enabling analysts, mobile teams, and executives to quickly establish command and control.  Use ArcGIS Mission to streamline your operations, manage your teams and tactical resources when working on planned events, or needing to quickly pivot to deal with unplanned circumstances. I am excited to share a preview of some new and enhanced features in ArcGIS Mission that users can look forward to this fall, including:

Adding portal users to a mission by easily using existing portal groups or by uploading a CSV (command separated values) of existing portal usernames.

Organizations looking to manage their operations and respond more efficiently are still challenged with coordinating activities among a dispersed workforce. All while ensuring that everyone remains in contact, regardless of the environment. Our team is progressively working toward streamlining mission operations and providing users with one tool that leverages ArcGIS to make it a seamless process.
