ArcPad 10 Makes Data Collection Easier

New Version Includes Support for ArcGIS Online Map Services and QuickCapture Toolbar

Redlands, CaliforniaArcPad 10, which becomes available today, extends basemap support via ArcGIS Online and greatly improves performance. ArcPad is a feature-rich mobile GIS application for field mapping and data collection.

The new version of ArcPad includes support for ArcGIS Online Map Services. Users can now access ArcGIS Online basemaps, such as World Street Map, World Topographic Map, and World Imagery, as well as Microsoft Bing Maps, and use them in their ArcPad projects.

The ArcPad Data Manager extension for ArcGIS now lets users customize an ArcPad project without the need for coding or scripting. Users save time because data forms are automatically generated and populated for related tables. Also, users have greater control over using photos in ArcPad projects, and hyperlinked photos are now integrated in the checkout and check-in process.

Other improvements and new features in ArcPad 10 include

  • Improved performance—Performance has been increased with better allocation of memory and a new quick draw tool. Enhancements have also been made to the Esri StreetMap extension to ensure the maximum amount of memory is available to both ArcPad and StreetMap.
  • Dynamic QuickCapture toolbar—ArcPad 10 includes a dynamic toolbar that automatically builds the tools and forms you need to edit your data. With a simple tap of the stylus you can add data to the data layer of your choice. The customized QuickCapture toolbar can be used across all of the user's ArcPad projects.
  • Better camera and photo experience—A new camera module, DirectShow, works for a greater number and range of hardware devices. The camera's user experience is the same on all mobile devices. Along with improved photo management (within the ArcPad Data Manager extension for ArcGIS Desktop), users are able to incorporate photos into their ArcPad projects much faster and more easily.
