New Esri ArcGIS Field Maps beta supports Eos Arrow GNSS location and metadata

ArcGIS Field Maps a new Esri mobile app to be released in its first beta July 2020 will be supported by Eos Arrow GNSS receivers.

ArcGIS Field Maps is the forthcoming combination of the functionality of five existing Esri mobile apps: ArcGIS Collector, ArcGIS Explorer, ArcGIS Tracker, ArcGIS Workforce, and ArcGIS Navigator. It includes all of the capabilities of Collector today. However, ArcGIS Field Maps provides much more functionality.

For example, in the first beta version – available this July – users will be able to perform markups, work with read-only maps, and work with MMPKs – all in one app! And, we are excited to announce that you can do this with high-accuracy GPS locations and metadata from Arrow GNSS receivers.

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 that with this beta release. For customers who would like to have field crews able to access read-only maps with high-accuracy, for instance (such as during utility locates), this is now a possibility. In addition, crews can take advantage of high-accuracy GPS tracks while tracking.

“We are incredibly excited for the new opportunities ArcGIS Field Maps brings to expand our partnership with Esri,” Eos CTO Jean-Yves Lauture said. “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,” he added further.

This high-accuracy underground mapping solution will be available in ArcGIS Field Maps right away in the first beta release. A single fieldworker will be able to perform real-time, high-accuracy mapping of underground assets using the same workflow he or she had previously used with Collector and Arrow GNSS.
