New Improvements Include Disconnected Editing and Browser Support
March 18, 2014
Collector for ArcGIS – use the Collector app offline to collect and edit maps and data regardless of your network availability.
Esri has released new versions of Collector for ArcGIS
and Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS
. The Collector app now includes the ability to download maps to your smartphone or tablet device to collect and edit data when working offline. Operations Dashboard has added support for browsers so you can view operations on your iPad, Android tablet or from your desktop. Both apps are available at no cost to ArcGIS Online subscribers and Portal for ArcGIS customers.
Collector for ArcGIS
Collector for ArcGIS is a configurable field data collection app for iOS and Android devices. With the latest release, maps can be used anywhere regardless of network availability. You can take map areas offline and work with them in remote locations where network availability is either nonexistent or unreliable. Users can download Esri basemaps as well as their own basemaps managed within their ArcGIS organization.
Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS
Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS provides a common operational picture for monitoring, tracking, and reporting events within your organization. The new version of Operations Dashboard now supports web browsers. That means you can have the same real-time view of operations on your tablet that you see on your Windows desktop.
Data sources inside Operations Dashboard have also been improved in the 10.2.2 version of the app. You can now power operation views using dynamic map services as well as feature services, and other types of layers including real-time weather, traffic, and social media feeds.
Collector for ArcGIS can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play. Operations Dashboard is available through ArcGIS Online. Portal for ArcGIS users can access the Operations Dashboard app from the Customer Care portal.
