Nathan Bennett explains how to leverage your existing GIS services directly from your Windows Phone 7 device.
00:05 Hi. I'm Nathan.
00:07 ArcGIS for Windows Phone extends the reach of your GIS from the office to Windows Phone 7 devices.
00:13 It includes a free application available for download from the Zune Marketplace…
00:17 …and enables you to discover maps published on ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Server.
00:23 ArcGIS for Windows Phone is part of the ArcGIS system and is a great way to find and use maps, to collect information…
00:30 …and to leverage your existing GIS services.
00:33 Let's take a look.
00:35 So this is the ArcGIS for Windows Phone application.
00:40 And we can find content by browsing ArcGIS galleries or by searching for keywords.
00:50 So the maps can come from ArcGIS Online or from your own published map services.
00:56 You can find a combination of basemaps and operational layers, and the maps for Windows Phone 7 aren't any sort of special map.
01:04 They're the…the maps that you're publishing now.
01:08 So let's search from some of Esri's content.
01:14 Here we can see all the Esri-related maps and groups.
01:20 Now I've heard a lot about this National Maps for the USA group.
01:24 By clicking this arrow, we can see its description and then check out all of its members.
01:34 So this group has a lot of great content that's been shared with the public.
01:38 The USA weather warnings map looks interesting, and its details indicate that it's got some content from NOAA.
01:44 So let's check out this map.
01:55 When the map opens, we can see weather warnings across the US.
01:58 We can navigate to an area of interest, tap on the map, and see that this is a gale warning.
02:09 We can see when it was issued and when it will expire.
02:13 Let's take a look at a different map and see how ArcGIS for Windows Phone…
02:17 …can enable you to collect information directly into your GIS.
02:30 So back in the galleries, take a look at the collection samples.
02:36 Now these samples were published to demonstrate the capabilities of GIS and GPS data collection…
02:45 …leveraging the new features services in ArcGIS.
02:48 The ArcGIS system enables you to create feature collection templates that can be published as feature services…
02:55 …and consumed in web and mobile applications.
03:01 Let's take a look at the civic events map.
03:12 The civic events map includes a data collection template that can be used to record…
03:16 …civic events that are happening within the community.
03:20 Any time you add a map with a feature service, you'll get the new Add new feature menu item.
03:27 Here we can see all the type of events that have been published in this template.
03:31 Let's choose a movie night, and here we're presented with a form that we can use to fill out some attributes…
03:38 …like supply a name or change the date.
03:45 Then we can go ahead and collect the location.
03:48 We can do this by either using the device's GPS or by tapping on the map.
03:58 With ArcGIS for Windows Phone, it's that easy to collect information directly into your GIS.
04:05 So far, we have taken a look at what's possible with the ready-to-use ArcGIS for Windows Phone application.
04:11 Using the ArcGIS API for Windows Phone, developers can build focused applications that meet a variety of workflows…
04:18 …and can be deployed within an enterprise or publicly via the marketplace.
04:22 Let's take a look at an example.
04:25 This application, Health Care Finder, enables users to find licensed health care facilities in their area.
04:35 Licensed health care facility points are made available by the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development…
04:41 …in the California Department of Health Services.
04:43 This information has been published as an ArcGIS map service that we can consume in the phone.
04:51 So we'll start by defining our location, and we can use either our device's GPS or by searching for an address.
05:01 So once we have our location, we can find all the health care facilities that are within a 10-minute drive.
05:10 We can do this by leveraging a published ArcGIS geoprocessing service.
05:21 So here we see the drive-time area and all the facilities.
05:25 We can filter the facilities by specialty like surgical clinic.
05:36 We can tap on the facility to see its category and drill into its description to see its name, its address; you could give them a call…
05:52 …or route there from our current location.
06:08 ArcGIS for Windows Phone extends your GIS to a wider audience.
06:12 To get started, download the app from the Zune Marketplace and visit the Esri Resource Center to download the API…
06:18 …and begin building custom applications. Thank you.
