1- Field Operations with Collector for ArcGIS (registration CLOSED)

One Session: Wednesday October 12, 2016 (1:00PM-3:00PM)

Extending GIS into the field is one of the fastest growing sectors in the industry, driven largely by the advancements and availability of smart phones and tablet devices. In this workshop you will see demonstrations of building services and Web maps to be used in Collector for ArcGIS. Participants will then use their own mobile devices to collect assets both in an online and offline mode, and review them in a dashboard. Note: Participants must bring their own mobile device with Collector for ArcGIS installed. Visit the Collector Web site to determine which devices are supported.
