Use ArcGIS for Windows Mobile to create better mobile projects and communicate faster and more effectively with your field crews.
00:05 Hi, I'm Adam, a GIS analyst with Esri.
00:09 ArcGIS Mobile improves the way we view and interact with our maps in the field, create and manage our data…
00:16 …and collaborate in the field to improve data inspection and collection times.
00:21 It's much easier to see our maps outdoors and to produce beautiful maps faster and easier with more data sources.
00:29 We can also collaborate with our peers in the field in real time.
00:33 Mobile technology is fun, and it's powerful, and I'm very excited to show you the all-new ArcGIS Mobile.
00:40 Let's take a look.
00:43 The user interface has been completely redesigned, making it much easier for field operators to use.
00:48 With touch support, you simply touch the screen and interact with the map.
00:53 Viewing a map like this outdoors can be challenging.
00:57 Let's take a look at a few enhancements that make our work in the field much easier.
01:03 We can dim our basemap features.
01:05 So here, I can make my features that I'm collecting pop out and really be visible on the map.
01:11 I can even change the entire display mode to switch from, say, a nighttime mode to a daytime mode.
01:21 Now that we can see what we're doing, let's collect some features.
01:25 Simply tap the screen, let's grab some graffiti points, I'll collect them using the map, place it on the map.
01:35 I can enter in some attributes about that; I can even snap a photo from the field and attach it right here in the dialog.
01:54 So here's the photo I'm looking for; we'll attach that and submit this.
02:01 As soon as I submit this, everyone can access and view this data.
02:08 These usability enhancements make it possible for field crews to work more efficiently and record their observations faster and easier.
02:16 The next mobile enhancement I'd like to show you deals with the creation of mobile projects, projects like the one we see here.
02:25 So I'm going to open up the Mobile Project Center, and I'm going to create a new project.
02:33 Give this project a name…
02:42 Give it some map elements.
02:44 I'll choose from my basemap options.
02:47 We can load in a street map data source, a cached map service, one of our own map services…
02:53 …and we can even connect with ArcGIS Online, free or Premium Services.
02:58 Let's bring in the ArcGIS Online street map data source to serve as our basemap here.
03:12 I'm going to select the StreetMap World 2D and add this in as our basemap.
03:17 I also need to add a layer that we want to collect, points that we're going to collect in the field.
03:22 So I'm going to connect up to our server and add our collection information. 00:03:28
03:31 I'll save my changes.
03:33 And to access this for our mobile field crews, it's very simple.
03:36 We'll open up the mobile application.
03:42 Let's open up a new project. I'll download a project from my server.
03:52 Let's list all the projects that are available. We'll choose the one that we just created, called Austin.
03:57 Now I'm ready to go.
03:58 We'll download our data, and I'm ready to start collecting points in the field.
04:09 That's it; there's our mobile project.
04:12 The last application I'd like to show you is my favorite.
04:15 It shows how we can use ArcGIS Mobile to collaborate in real time directly from the field.
04:22 So not only can I collect and maintain my own information, but I can also connect with my peers directly from the mobile application.
04:31 In this case, we're looking at first responders.
04:34 I can click on a first responder and see the active position of that staff member.
04:39 If they've updated their profile, I can see that information here.
04:43 In this case, this person is responding to an incident.
04:47 And this person is on scene at an incident.
04:51 I can click to view the map, and I can see their active position.
04:54 And if I want, I can even communicate directly with their mobile device by e-mail or even text or phone call.
05:02 So we can see how an application like this allows us to better communicate more effectively and faster with our field crew.
05:10 These mobile enhancements are going to help us all be more productive by allowing us to get our GIS into and out of the field faster and easier.
05:19 Thank you.
