A prior article https://community.esri.com/community/gis/applications/arcgis-pro/blog/2018/06/30/using-arcgis-pro-22-to-put-the-esri-world-imagery-basemap-in-a-mobile-map  described how to put the Esri Word Imagery basemap in a mobile map.  With the release of ArcGIS Pro 2.4 the same workflow applies for Esri Vector Tile basemaps.

 

If your organization is using vector tile basemaps in the basemap gallery, it’s as simple as selecting the desired basemap in the basemap gallery.

 

 

Zooming to the desired area of interest and clicking ‘Download Map’ on the ribbon. Check the box to include basemap and tile layers.

 

 

 

When the process completes a vector tile package layer will be added to your map.

 

 

This layer can be packaged like any other layer.

For Organization admins, you can enable the use of Esri vector tile basemaps in your organization settings.

 

 

OK… so you are not an organization administrator and your organization is not using Esri vector basemaps, you can still export vector tile packages from vector tile services that support export.  In fact, I prefer modifying the styles for the vector tile services that I extract. Simply use the Vector Tile Style Editor https://developers.arcgis.com/vector-tile-style-editor/

The Vector Tile Style editor allows you to create and save custom styles for vector tile services.

For example; I chose the ‘Nova’ style.

I then made some modifications…  (a lot of people ask for basemaps that don't have labels, you can absolutely turn off all the labels).  In this example I changed the color of the streets to one that is more pleasing to me, for use in Navigator for ArcGIS at night.

 

 

Save the style as your own...

 

...then back in ArcGIS Pro, search for, and add the styled tile service to your map.

 

Remove the default layers.

 

 

Then click Download Map  to get a vector tile package in your style.  This vector tile package can be used just like any other, on Its own, as a side loaded basemap for an App, or simply included in a Mobile Map.

 

 

 

That's it for now.

Support for the use of Arcade expressions in popup configurations is starting (June 2019) to roll out in apps like Collector for ArcGIS, Explorer for ArcGIS Windows Beta, Navigator for ArcGIS Beta and any app based on the ArcGIS Runtime 100.5 or later.  This article will show how Shortlist and Tour Story Map popups can be adapted to an HTML style popup.  The relatively standard data structure of story maps make for a great popup experience.

 

For this example we will be using the San Diego Shortlist webmap

 

Opening this Map in Explorer for ArcGIS  we see a popup that looks like this:

 

Using an arcade expression we can create a popup in ArcGIS Pro that looks like this in Explorer.

 

 

If you would like to follow along, open the San Diego Shortlist webmap in ArcGIS Pro.

 

From the Catalog Pane search for ‘San Diego shortlist’ and 'Open' it.

 

In this exercise we are only going to work with the San Diego places layer, so the other layers can be removed from the map.

Right Click on the San Diego places layer and ‘Configure Pop-ups’.

 

Remove the current popup elements.

 

Click Expressions button to add an Arcade Expression

 

 

Click New to open the Expression Builder.

 

 

We will use multiple expressions to construct an HTML Popup.  We could probably write it up in one expression, but it will be easier to learn if we break it into multiple expressions for each part of the popup.

This picture shows the finished popup configured with the expressions.

 

 

In the expression builder name the expression and copy and paste the expression below into the ‘Expression’ text box.

{expression/style} – mainly for font, background color, border color and heading.

var style = '<style>body {background-color: white; text-align: center; font-family: verdana; margin: 0px; border: 5px solid #0059b3; outline-style: solid; outline-color: white;} h1 {color: white; text-align: center; padding: 10px; background-color: #0059b3;}p {  font-family: verdana; text-align: left; margin-left: 0px; padding-left: 5px; background-color: white;} </style>';

 

return style

 

note: The popup we are building is simple, so the style is as well, however, for more advanced popups you will definitely want make use of a style. Make sure there are no hard returns in the variables you set in the expressions, it will cause the expression to fail. All of the HTML needs to be quoted in a string.

 

Create new expressions for each of the expression that follow.  The part of the popup that the expression applies to is also pictured for reference.

 

(expression/TitleShortDesc)

 

var title = '<h1 align="center"><font color="white"><b>'+ $feature.TITLE +'</b></font></h1>'

var bodytext = '<center style="background-color: white";><br>' + $feature.Short_Desc + '<br><br></center>'

 

return title + bodytext

note: In this expression we are utilizing a heading defined in the style and using an attribute from the TITLE field.  We are also adding a short description field.

 

{expression/img_url}

 

var ImgUrl = TextFormatting.NewLine +'<img src="'+ $feature.Pic_URL  + '" width="100%" />';

 

return ImgUrl;

note: we have set the width for the image to 100% so that it will size to the width of the popup window.

 

{expression/PhotoCreditAddress}

 

return '<center style="background-color: white";><i>'+$feature.PIC_CREDIT +'</i><br><br>'+$feature.Address + '<br><br></center>'

{expression/hours}

 

 

var hours = ""

if (!isEmpty($feature.TextForHours)){

hours = '<center style="background-color: white";>Hours<br>' + text($feature.TextForHours) + '</center><br><br>'

return hours;

}

else {

}

note: in this expression we are checking to see if the TextForHours attribute is null, this is something that we could have done for all expressions, it is good practice to check for null attributes.

 

{expression\Description}

 

var weblink = '<center style="background-color: white";> <a href="'+$feature.website+'">' + $feature.TITLE + '</a><br></center>'

var description = '<p>' + $feature.Desc1 + $feature.Desc2 + $feature.Desc3 + $feature.Desc4 + $feature.Desc5 + '</p>'

 

return weblink + description

When you have finished entering all the expressions, click the back arrow and configure the popup.

 

Add a ‘Text’ configuration.

Click the pencil icon to edit it.

Add all the expressions.

Since the formatting for the HTML was part of the expressions, you do not need to and probably should not format them in the Text Options.

 

Tap the back arrow.

 

Click on a feature to see if the popup appears as desired.

note: ArcGIS Pro shows a light gray background where background color is undefined.  Also, you can see there is padding at the top and sides of the heading, this will display correctly in runtime apps.

 

Using ArcGIS Pro share the map as webmap or mobile map package (change the basemap if creating a mobile map package) and your map with HTML Popup will be ready for use in ArcGIS Runtime 100.5 and later apps.  (Apps written on prior runtime version do not support the use of arcade in a popup and will not display arcade content.)

 

 

Just barely touching the surface for possibilities with arcade popups, but that's it for now.

In this article we will learn how to launch Survey123 from Explorer for ArcGIS and pass attribute information from the Explorer map to the survey.  For this example we will use a map of Shenandoah National Park that that will allow hikers to provide trail information for their current location by launching a survey.

Here is a video that shows the scenario:

 

 

In this exercise we will use an offline map for Shenandoah National Park.  We will create a Survey for Survey123 that will allow map users (park visitors) to submit trail reports. 

If you are brand new to using ArcGIS Pro, I would recommend working through the Using ArcGIS Pro to make an offline map blog https://community.esri.com/community/gis/applications/arcgis-pro/blog/2018/01/20/use-arcgis-pro-21-to-make-an-offline-map, which walks through each step in creating an offline map.

 

We will start by creating a Survey.  For this step you will need an Esri user account.  In a web-browser visit https://survey123.arcgis.com/ and sign in.

 

 

Click “Create a New Survey”

For this Survey we will get started using the Web Designer.

Enter name, tag, summary and provide a thumbnail for your survey… then click create.

Use Survey123 to build your survey.  For this survey we want hikers to provide trail information, so we will set up the Survey with some common trail issues that we want to know about, as well description, photo, location, and observation time.

 

If you are new to working with Survey123 web designer, check out this video  https://survey123.arcgis.com/videos/

 

Once we have completed the questions for our survey, click the Publish button.

 

In our example we will be passing some attribute information from the map to our Survey.  To make this an easier setup process click Modify schema.

 

It is good practice to set the name column in the schema, rather than using the defaults.  It makes the service easier to use for other purposes.

 

 

When finished renaming fields, click Publish to create the survey service.  

 

Next click Collaborate, check Everyone (Public) and click Save.  Now, anyone hiking the trail with the survey will be able to provide information.

 

Copy the Survey ID number from the survey link and save it for later.

 

 

Now we will work on updating an offline park map to use the survey. 

 

Open this Map Package in ArcGIS Pro http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=c48742ecdc784623ac15fde1e2455a72 

 

 

In this map we will update the ShenandoahNP_Trail layer pop-ups to allow user to launch the Survey we just created.

 

Right Click on the ShenandoahNP_Trail to Configure Pop-ups and Click the pencil to modify the Text pop-up.

 

The pop-up is already defined to show the Trail Name and Length of the trail.

Add “Report Trail Status” use your mouse to highlight the text and click the hyperlink button. 

 

 

We will add an AppLink to Launch Survey123 and pass a couple trail feature attributes to the survey.

For this step you will need the field names and survey ID for the survey you created. You will use the them to create an app link URL like this one:

arcgis-survey123://?itemID=4560a3c533eb41fcb79fa3ec473babc8&field:TRAILNAME={TRAIL_NAME}&field:MAINTENANCE={MAINT_BY}

 

The ID and fieldname defined in the survey are in bold, the fields in our feature data are in curly brackets.

Type the App link in for the URL and click Apply.

 

*Pro 2.1 and later required.

 

Next click the back arrow on the Configure Pop-up pane.

 

Now we will test the pop-up and App link in ArcGIS Pro.

To test the link to the survey, if you do not have Survey123 for Windows installed you can get it here https://doc.arcgis.com/en/survey123/download/

Zoom in the map and click on a trail to see the pop-up.

Click on the “Report Trail Status” link.

Survey123 opens the Trail Report Survey and the trail name and maintenance attributes are automatically filled out.

 

*more information about Survey123 URL scheme https://community.esri.com/groups/survey123/blog/2016/07/30/understanding-survey123s-custom-url-scheme

 

With a working pop-up, all we need to do is share our map with Explorer for ArcGIS users.

Use the Create Mobile Map Package tool to create an offline map.  The Publisher extension allows you to ‘Enable Anonymous Use’, check the box to allow the public to use the map and click run. To enable for Anonymous use your ArcGIS Pro user account will need to be provisioned with the Publisher license.

 

 

Use the Share Package tool to share your map.

 

Maps that are Enabled for Anonymous use and shared with Everybody can be opened by every and any Explorer for ArcGIS user.  Explorer users can simply search for the map in the Explorer app to use it.

 

Our intention is to provide an offline map and offline survey that park visitors can use while hiking in the park.  The users also need the app Explorer for ArcGIS and Survey123.  They need to get all of this while connected to the internet.

In a park scenario we might make a website for a user to download the content from, or print out a map or poster, that lets users know that this content is available, and how to make use of it.  We can even create QRcodes to make getting the content easy.

 

Creating QR codes and App links

Once you have shared the map, find it on ArcGIS online and view the map details to get the item ID.

 

Copy the item ID to your clipboard and create the following applink. (more information about Explorer app links can be found here https://github.com/Esri/explorer-integration)

arcgis-explorer://?itemID=6ca5f9cfea0c47b2969ee9750693301f

 

You can use this as a link on your website, and Explorer users browsing your site on their device can simply click the link to download and open the map.

<a href="arcgis-explorer://?itemID=6ca5f9cfea0c47b2969ee9750693301f">Open the map in Explorer</a>

You can also make it easy for people to get your map using a QR Code.  Just use the applink to generate a QR Code, add it to your website or print it for poster display.

Of course, users will also need Explore for ArcGIS and Survey123. You can create Links and QRcodes for those too.

A map could printed with all of the QR codes in a location that has internet access, allowing people to get everything they need on their device before going out into the field or offline.

 

In this blog I describe a pattern for creating offline maps using data from The National Map.  I have shared a Pro project for the full USA Map.

 

Use the following instructions to work with the map in Arcgis Pro, due to its size there is a special work flow to follow.  (the project package is 68 Gigabytes and it un-compresses to 115 Gigabytes, opening the project as described in the Using ArcGIS Pro 2.1 to make an offline map blog post will download and un-compress the project in the ArcGIS home folder.  If your home folder is anything like mine, you won't have enough room for it!

 

In webbrowser visit https://www.arcgis.com/home/index.html and search for USGS National Map based source type:"Project Package"

 

Or go directly to the item by clicking on this link: http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=1e12b7657fa84ec097392b686f6fa05d and download the package. 

 

Note: the the package in 68 Gigabytes in size, broadband is recommended for download. 

 

Once downloaded use 7zip to un-compress the Project to a folder location that is greater than the 116 Gigabyte uncompressed size.  You can get 7zip from http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

 

Use 7-Zip to Extract files...

 

On a computer with the following specs it took 1 hour to un-compress the project.

 

Once the project in un-zipped you can use ArcGIS Pro to open the Project.

 

You will see that this project has the same elements as the example project from the blog, but the map covers the Entire Unites States of America and territories.

 

This video shows how ArcGIS online can be leveraged to share data among ArcGIS Explorer Desktop users.

Layer Packages are a great way to share information.  Once you have them, they are also a great way to work with maps in ArcGIS Explorer desktop while disconnected from the internet.

Hello World!   (my first blog post on GeoNet)

 

At the 2014 Esri User Conference I demonstrated the use of Operations Dashboard to monitor field edits.  This video is a recording of that Demo theater presentation.  The video shows how to set up and publish a hosted feature service for use with Collector for ArcGIS. It also shows how to author a map containing the service that can be used in Operations Dashboard to monitor edits made to the map.

 

 

You can contribute to the map by opening “Collected Observations” http://www.arcgis.com/home/webmap/viewer.html?webmap=d2156210ccad4536a307f157bf5b85f8 in collector or the web browser and editing the map.

 

You can Monitor the edits by opening this operations view in your web browser. http://www.arcgis.com/apps/dashboard/index.html#/a59da41208e24e34a56c40f1971da232

 

To edit the map and view the operations dashboard you will need to be signed in to ArcGIS online.
