Esri announced the release of ArcGIS QuickCapture, a mobile app designed for rapid and at-speed field data collection workflows.  Data can be collected from a moving vehicle with the touch of a button and sent back to the office for real-time analysis, leading to faster and more effective decision-making.  The new app is ideal for road inspections, aerial surveys, monitoring vegetation encroachment, and more.

ArcGIS QuickCapture allows users to configure a customized interface that suits their specific project requirements, eliminating unnecessary features and options.  This personalization helps users take advantage of the single-tap, big-button system to capture details and photos as they go.  The app is user-friendly, eliminating the need for extensive crew training.

The new app integrates with the user’s existing IT infrastructure and ArcGIS platform, which simplifies implementation.  It uses the existing GPS and camera on smartphones and tablets, and it is compatible with iOS, Android, and Windows devices.  For high-accuracy data collection workflows, QuickCapture is also compatible with external Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers.
