What's New in Tracker for ArcGIS (December 2019)

We are pleased to announce that Tracker for ArcGIS is now available for use with ArcGIS Online!


Tracker ArcGIS Online

Following our initial release with ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7 in April of 2019, the exciting new location tracking capability is now available as an organization extension inside of ArcGIS Online.


Tracks are stored within your organization for 30 days and there is no feature storage/credit cost. If you would like to keep tracks for a longer period or use the Analysis tools within ArcGIS Online, you will need to export them from the location tracking layer first.

Tracks stored within the location tracking layer can be securely shared with others using the Track Viewer web app. Mobile users and track viewers can be added to track views manually or from members shared to an existing group or Workforce project. Mobile users can also be added using a csv file.

You can use the Track Viewer web app to visualize and interrogate tracks as well. With this update, you can maximize the map view and you can switch basemaps to provide more context when viewing where someone has gone.

The Tracker for ArcGIS mobile app is available as a premium app for Android and iOS devices that is available with any user type, including Viewer. Your organization can purchase and use the Tracker app to record and share where your employees and contractors are and where they have been. With this update, we have added a couple of new features to the mobile apps:
