We use Samsung Tab S2 for data collection in the field. I personally feel collecting data in landscape view in Collector is cumbersome. On older Tab A's we could rotate the devices or lock them in landscape or portrait view. This functionality is not possible with this tablet. Is ESRI coming up with a settings change were users can specify which… (Show more)

You might have a single layer of data that you need to add to a map multiple times (perhaps so that visibility can be toggled separately). In the blog, I show a way to take the same data offline multiple times in a single map, and… (Show more)

I've written a blog about ways you can Control access to data in Collector through feature layer views.

I am interested in building a mobile application that would allow users to edit and add data to a map (hosted as a mapService on ArcGIS Server) in offline mode, using the mobile device GPS and forms for data.   What tools, products and technologies are needed to develop such app?   I know this would be quite difficult to answer with such few… (Show more)

This is… (Show more)
