00:12Hi. My name is Adam.
00:13I'm going to show you how you can edit and capture data directly from your mobile device…
00:21…using ArcGIS Server and your arcgis.com account.
00:22Let's take a look.
00:24So here it is, my map.
00:26And this is a map I would like to extend to a mobile work force; in this case, volunteers that will be…
00:32…capturing information about fish stocking programs along this river.
00:37Now before we publish that map, there's a few best practices we need to follow to ensure its effectiveness.
00:43First of all, we need to make sure we document the properties of our map properly.
00:49So we'll open up the map document's properties, we'll give it a title, a description, and say OK…
00:54…and we'll do the same for our layer there; the data we're collecting on.
01:00This pulls open the Layer Properties dialog; and we give it a description and a name.
01:05And we certainly want to make this a good experience for the volunteers, so we're going to uncheck any information…
01:11…they don't need to see or capture.
01:14Here I have the date that the stocking occurred, the count, and the species of fish that was placed.
01:21Now notice that I have aliases here.
01:23So let's go ahead and enter an alias; something that's going to be a little more understandable to the volunteer.
01:29Now that we've done that, our map is ready to go.
01:33So let's use the map service publishing toolbar to publish this map to the web.
01:39So we'll analyze our map, pick up on any errors or any problems, and here you see we certainly have a concern.
01:46I'm using one of the ArcGIS Online basemaps.
01:50We can't republish that, so let's uncheck that, and we'll only publish the content…
01:57…we want our mobile field crew to work with.
02:01We'll preview that.
02:02Everything looks good.
02:04We'll save this map out, give it a name, and now we will publish it to ArcGIS Server.
02:14I'll rename this to Stocking.
02:20One thing that we want to do is we want to add feature access.
02:24This makes this feature editable by someone from a mobile device or even a web browser which we'll see here in a minute.
02:32So now that that's done we'll finish it and there we go.
02:35We've just followed best practices to authoring this map and preparing it and now we've put it out to ArcGIS Server.
02:42Our next step will be to share it with arcgis.com.
02:47So here we are at the arcgis.com home page, which by the way is a free account for you to set up.
02:55I've logged in to my account here, and I'll show you some of the content that I'm sharing.
03:00Here you see a number of services and packages that I've put.
03:03Let's add a connection to the map we've just published.
03:07I'll hit the drop down; we'll grab ArcGIS Server connection here.
03:12I need a URL; I can grab this directly from our ArcGIS Server just by copying and pasting the link to our trout-stocking map.
03:21Paste that in there; we'll give it a title.
03:24We'll throw a few tags in here, as well.
03:28We'll call it trout-stocking program.
03:31We'll give it some tags that help it be discovered a little bit easier.
03:35Texas; Guadalupe; and trout.
03:38We'll add that item, and now that we've shared our service with arcgis.com there's one more sharing…
03:47…side of things that we need to take care of.
03:49So we'll hit the Share button.
03:51Now, once it's on arcgis.com I can share it with everyone, or I can share it with a select, private group…
03:57…and that's what I'll do here.
03:58I don't want everyone editing my content.
04:01I'll say "OK," and let's open the map.
04:04So we're opening the map now in the arcgis.com viewer.
04:09This map looks identical to the map that we saw a moment ago in ArcMap.
04:14So from this you'll notice I have an Edit dialog, that's thanks to the feature service.
04:19Now what that enables me to do is to click it and start interacting with features.
04:24So as an example I can click on an existing feature and modify any of the attributes that are there.
04:30If I like, I can click on the icon over here and just place a point on the map.
04:36So now I can enter in a new trout-stocking location and update the attributes.
04:42Notice that all of the attributes are following what we've set up in that map document.
04:47All the aliases, fish count, trout species, ambient temperature, all of those are coming across.
04:53And just like that we add a feature on the map.
04:57So we are ready to go.
04:59Now, you can change the basemaps in the back there.
05:02You can pick whatever's most appropriate for you.
05:06I'll leave the topographic basemap.
05:08We'll save the map.
05:10So I'll give this map [unintelligible] a new name.
05:13We can call it Trout-Stocking Map.
05:17We can give it a couple tags so someone can search and discover if we wanted them to.
05:23Trout and Guadalupe.
05:25We can give it a quick summary.
05:26This is our volunteer mobile map.
05:29And, we hit Save.
05:31So we've just now created a new map that lives on arcgis.com and is now available to the members of my group.
05:40So let's go into the content and I can show you the map that we've just made.
05:44Here it is; Trout-Stocking Map.
05:46Notice though that it's not shared with anybody; it's still private on my group.
05:50So let's share it.
05:51Again, I could share it with everyone, but we're going to keep it private with our own group.
05:56And I'll say OK.
05:58So just like that we've followed all the best practices, we have published that map to ArcGIS Server…
06:05…and now we've shared that map with arcgis.com.
06:10So here is my iPhone.
06:11If you had a Windows Phone 7 or an Android device you would have the exact same experience.
06:17I'm going to open up the ArcGIS application.
06:20Let's find the map that we just published.
06:22I'll do that by going to My Maps.
06:24I'm going straight to that folder where we stored it.
06:27In this case I'll open up our Trout-Stocking Program map, and there is the map that we just authored in arcgis.com.
06:35We'll zoom in and you can see the points that we collected.
06:38As a volunteer, I'm now accessing this map on a mobile device.
06:43And I can do more than just view and look at this map; I can actually capture and edit information.
06:49So to do that, we'll just tap the button on the top right there.
06:52You'll notice that I have the option now to collect and add new features to the map, so we'll do that.
06:59Now, I'm going to collect the location.
07:01I could do this using the GPS on my phone.
07:04In this case I'm going to physically place it on the map.
07:08We'll zoom in to this area of the river.
07:12Tap it, accept that as my location, and up comes our form, our attribute information.
07:13So you'll see and you'll recognize this from the map that all of the aliases are said and we've got our fish count.
07:24As a volunteer I simply select the fish-count attribute and give it an update.
07:30When I'm done with that I say OK.
07:31If I wanted to update anything else here I certainly could do that just by interacting with the map.
07:40Let's go ahead and finish.
07:42And just like that we've added a new feature to the map.
07:45Now I can add features, but I can also modify existing features.
07:49Here I see on the other end of this bend a point that existed already.
07:55So I can tap that point, open up the attributes, and modify any of these just by hitting the Edit button on the top.
08:02So if I wanted to update one of these values I certainly could do that.
08:07So just like that we've taken our map to our mobile device.
08:10We've captured data in the field and shown how we can update and capture content directly from our mobile device.
08:18So that's it.
08:19As you can see, it's a straightforward process for extending the power of GIS outside of your office.
08:25But not only outside of your office, to anyone, using their Windows 7 Phone, their Android, or their iPhone.
