Redlands, California—June 27, 2016—Esri will launch two new ArcGIS apps for field operating efficiency at the upcoming Esri User Conference, to be held June 27–July 1 in San Diego. Amid much excitement, attendees will be able to see live demos and even experiment with Drone2Map for ArcGIS and Survey123 for ArcGIS.
“These two apps are already becoming game changers,” said Esri president Jack Dangermond. “What we’ve done is make it much easier for our users to collect data, including imagery, and then right away start working with that data—mapping, analyzing, sharing—in ArcGIS.”
Drone2Map for ArcGIS
Drone2Map provides safe and affordable imagery on demand—a benefit especially useful to people who work in land analysis or infrastructure inspection and those monitoring events such as natural disasters and environmental change. Drone2Map takes still imagery captured by a drone and quickly turns it into high-quality 2D and 3D products in ArcGIS. The app detects camera and sensor parameters and intelligently applies appropriate defaults. Its rapid-process capability allows teams in the field to be sure they’ve captured everything they need to avoid costly return trips. The imagery products created using Drone2Map can be used for analysis in ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Pro to support informed decision-making.
Survey123 for ArcGIS
Survey123 is a simple yet powerful formcentric field data gathering solution that makes it possible to create, share, and analyze surveys in three easy steps. With Survey123, paper forms are effectively transformed into digital surveys. Surveys, from simple to sophisticated, are authored and then shared in ArcGIS. Using the Survey123 mobile app for iOS, Android, or Windows, teams in the field capture survey results with their smartphones and tablets, even in disconnected environments. Data captured in the field is immediately available for analysis in ArcGIS to help users make better decisions. Survey123 is a versatile data collection solution already popular with people in public health, education, public works, disaster response, and humanitarian agencies.
Attendees of the Esri User Conference can see live demos and get hands-on experience with both of these new apps along with hundreds of other solutions designed to enable a smarter world. This annual event attracts 16,000 geographic information system (GIS) users, managers, and developers. It offers 300 moderated sessions, 450 hours of technical training, access to 300 software vendors, inspirational keynotes, and one-on-one sessions with Esri technical and professional support staff.
