Putting GIS in People’s Pockets

ESRI products can provide decision-makers and field staff with mobile applications that allow for display, query, and editing of geospatial data. By creating tailored solutions for end users and putting these applications on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, GIS developers can make spatial data more accessible than ever before. However, choosing the best mobile platform can be confusing. Innovate has worked with a number of clients over the past year to enable a wide variety of end users to access data via Droid Phones, iPhones, iPads, GPS devices, laptops and desktops. Each of these pieces of hardware has specific needs and limitations for GIS data to be effectively used on them. In addition, there are limitations on the use of data between these devices, so pairing the correct devices is critical for a successful implementation of this technology. This presentation will demonstrate a variety of use cases of mobile and web based technology. We will cover both our lessons learned and our success stories with these technologies.

Using ArcGIS Mobile and Trimble Positions with ArcGIS Server 10.1

Ensure your mobile GIS is populated with only the best quality data. When you want to work with Esri ArcGIS for Windows Mobile® 3.1 or Esri ArcPad, you can depend on Trimble® handheld GNSS and Trimble Positions™ software to deliver the accuracy you need and a streamlined workflow to make the total solution fast and seamless. Extend your GIS beyond the office to deploy intuitive and productive mobile data collection for accurate, up-to-date data across your organization. With the release of Trimble® Positions™ Mobile extension—the newest addition to the Trimble Positions software suite—as an Esri ArcGIS Mobile field software user you now have access to all the advantages of the Trimble Positions software. An extension for Esri ArcGIS Mobile field software, the Trimble Positions Mobile extension integrates ArcGIS Mobile workflows into the Positions software suite as an alternative to Trimble GPScorrect™ extension / GPS Analyst™ extension workflows. This workshop will demonstrate how to maximize the capabilities of new the Trimble Positions ArcGIS Mobile workflow and also covers how the new workflow compares to the previous GPScorrect and GPS Analyst extension workflow. You will be provided with a selection of Trimble GPS handhelds loaded with Esri ArcGIS Mobile together with the Trimble Positions ArcGIS extension and sample data and receive a full demonstration of the workflow from field to office server. This will be an ideal opportunity for those of you working with ArcGIS 10.1 to see the ease and advantages of working with the Trimble Positions software suite. As the Trimble Positions ArcGIS workflow is compatible with ArcGIS 10.1 only—older versions of ArcGIS are not supported by this new workflow. However for those that have not migrated yet to ArcGIS 10.1 this is a great opportunity to see what is in store for you when make that move. Jim Lahm 2-8-2013
