ArcGIS Field Maps Beta Supports EOS Arrow GNSS Receivers - 01/07/2020


The beta version of ArcGIS Field Maps, which is available now, combines the functionalities of five existing Esri mobile apps: ArcGIS Collector, ArcGIS Explorer, ArcGIS Tracker, ArcGIS Workforce and ArcGIS Navigator.

In the first beta version, users can perform markups, work with read-only maps and work with MMPKs in a single app, including the use of high-accuracy GPS locations and metadata from Arrow GNSS receivers from EOS Positioning. Customers who have been wanting to take advantage of high-accuracy GNSS data in apps such as Explorer and Tracker will now be able to do so thanks to this beta release.

Furthermore, it is now possible to give field crews access to read-only maps with high-accuracy. In addition, crews can take advantage of high-accuracy GPS tracks while tracking. Jean-Yves Lature, CTO of Montreal-based EOS Positioning, is excited about the new opportunities ArcGIS Field Maps brings to expand the company's partnership with Esri. Lauture comments: "Now our joint customers will be able to use the Arrow GNSS receivers with Field Maps to access high-accuracy location when simply viewing and marking up maps and when logging location tracks."

ArcGIS Field Maps is now available in beta and is scheduled to go fully live to the public in September of this year.
