Collector for ArcGIS Updated Today!

Blog Post created by jshaner-esristaff Employee on Jun 5, 2017

On June 5th, we released a new version of Collector that is now available in the iTunes App Store, Google Play, Amazon App Store and the Windows Store.

This is a minor update but adds some strategic new enhancements that will improve the way you work with high accuracy GPS receivers, manage attachments, work with basemaps and use Collector in a connected environment.

GPS Averaging –  can be used to improve the precision of your high-accuracy collection workflows. You can capture a number of positions and create a location from the average of those positions.

Rename Media Attachments -  now you can provide a meaningful name to the photos that you take around a feature. This is one of the most requested enhancements.

SD card support (Android) -  you can use the SD card to store and manage basemaps for easier, faster deployment of data.

Continuous Collect Improvements -  now supporting feature types that contain relationship classes.

Layer Refresh Support -  if your feature layers have a layer refresh interval set, Collector will honor the refresh setting. This is valuable when working with maps in a connected state as the graphics of a feature are cached when on the device and this will force a query/update.

In addition to these updates, we have several additional bug fixes and minor stability improvements. Please refer to our documentation website for more information.
