How ArcGIS Continues to Transform Field Operations

December 16, 2020

10:00 a.m.–10:45 a.m. (PST)

Virtual

Free

Language: English

Government services are dependent on effective field operations and accurate data. Restaurants must be inspected, road conditions must be surveyed, the closest work crews must be routed, and the data must always be fed back to the office, quickly and accurately. With the field operations capabilities in ArcGIS, organizations are able to create more efficient workflows that come from being able to collect information at the source, dispatch staff to where they are most needed, and maximize materials and resources to improve response times while reducing costs. This webinar will provide you with a strategy to quickly integrate GIS into your field workflows. Join the Esri state and local government team to 

  • See how ArcGIS Field Maps, the new premium app, will allow you to do it all—collect data, mark up maps, capture location tracks, complete assignments, and navigate to assets.
  • Build a comprehensive field operations strategy, including coordination, navigation, collection, and monitoring of personnel and assets in real time. 
  • Understand how artificial intelligence and machine learning enhance your work by automating processes, detecting and modeling change, and uncovering hidden patterns.
