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.
