Field Operations

Take the power of location anywhere

Optimize efficiency in field activities with the power of location intelligence

The power of location improves coordination and efficiency in field operations. Use field apps to reduce or even replace reliance on paper. Improve the data accuracy of field assets through purpose-built data collection apps. Ensure that field and office staff use the same authoritative data to reduce errors, boost productivity, and save money.

Location sharing

Know what happens in the field. Enable those in the field to share their location tracks so you can know where everyone is and where they have been. Location sharing is a capability of ArcGIS that is available in multiple solutions. For field personnel, track sharing can be accomplished through a field app that is controlled entirely by the user. Authorized managers and supervisors can use a web app to visualize and analyze track data to better allocate field personnel to areas of need, supporting more effective management of field activities.

Sharing information can be critical to the success of a project. Whether collaborating as a single team or with multiple organizations, the ability to scale to the specific needs of your situation is easily accomplished within a single system. Easily control data access for internal and external stakeholders, so everyone has only the information they need.
