Anyone who received a new smartphone or tablet for the holidays or users who just want to understand more about the functionality of ArcGIS on these handheld tools can attend a virtual Esri training seminar called “Using ArcGIS for Smartphones and Tablets.”
The ArcGIS App for Smartphones and Tablets is a free
application available from the Apple App Store, Android Market and Windows
Marketplace. The seminar shows how mobile users can access GIS maps and explore
data hosted on ArcGIS Online; discover information in interactive, visually
rich maps; and collect and update data using the app for their device.
Key points include how to access a GIS map from a mobile
device, locate map features that meet specific criteria, measure map feature
and get information about them, draw new features on the map and update
information associated with map features; share maps via email or to social
networking sites; find maps on ArcGIS online; create and share your own maps on
ArcGIS.com; and add data stored in files to a map on ArcGIS.com.
