Right now you could use standard Maps in Survey123.
It would be nice to look at Features from a Webmap in AGOL or Portal in order to use your organisations or public data to help the user to know if he is in the right spot.
We currently use Collector for many of our asset inspections however Survey 123 seems to offer some strong benefits. The biggest problem is that we need to have the ability to add feature services to the map in order to see the location of our assets. There needs to be a better method than multiple tile packages of the entire city.
In regards to Survey123 - GeoPoint collection...Default Map....Home Location Map:.
In the case of having several users on Survey123 capturing their locations or having multiple site visits, it would be important to see a custom webmap to show the current status of the location. I see this as a significant oversight.
Thank you for submitting and supporting this idea. When voting for it, please consider commenting to share your use case and how web maps would improve your current projects. Would the web map contain reference layers to help your field workers get their bearings? Do they need pop-up information from the layers in the web map? Are they surveying new information to update the features you'd put in the web map?
For our emergency canvassing application we would like to show status as
the field survey progress. This would very useful when we have multiple
teams on the ground.
We would use our webmaps to provide read-only reference information such as road maintenance or stormwater infrastructure. Then the user knows that they are collecting surveys on the correct asset.
Would like to be able to add existing feature layers to the base map in Survey 123. Example using Survey 123 for watermain breaks. End user would like to see the waterlines on the map as well. Would be most helpful
This is exactly what I'm trying to create!
I have also requested this enhancement. This would be most helpful to be able to see additional information on the base map.
We need our Utility field staff to be able to submit redlines via Survey123. If they can look at a basemap with utility data which has pop ups enabled, they can submit the redlines on the correct asset without having to go back and forth between the apps.
I would concur with the group. I have 80 town lots that may or may not have a house and need maintenance. It would be nice to see the lot polygons on the Survey123 map as I am driving around and not switching between Collector and Survey123.
I couldn't imagine an ESRI map that wasn't customizable with layers. Then there was survey123.
Any idea of when this feature might be implemented??
Custom web maps are much needed in my use case. Or just the ability to add feature service layers to the map to help users navigate.
Adding my voice to this request. Survey123 is almost exactly what we need to collect feedback from our citizens on the zone change we're going through, but we do need to be able to add the zoning layer as a reference. Without that information they don't know what the current or proposed zoning is for their location.
Thanks for sharing your views on how this idea would be beneficial to your organizations. This is currently on the roadmap for a future release of Survey123.
Please continue to share your perspectives, as this will help us understand how more of you plan to use this functionality.
are you able to provide a timeframe for this?
I understand the initial scope of survey 123 is to just acquire a location to attach to survey results. Something that would significantly improve the value of this is to pull in your own published webmap with the ability to configure the survey to acquire information from an asset selected from that map within Survey123. I am actually a bit shocked this is not implemented yet as it is such a common workflow. My use case is simply having field staff do inspections on municipal assets. A survey is perfect for this, but we need to attach the resulting survey to the feature itself(which will end up stored in an inspections table related to that asset feature class). If this is possible already in Survey123, please let me know. Thanks.
I want field staff to record current location regardless of where the geopoint is they choose, the reason being it is an audit or proof of site visit tool. This doesn't need the user to pick the geopoint tool but could just work on a capture save/close event. if it queried the GPS location automatically.
This would be a great enhancement as I would like to add routes to our surveys of wildlife observations. We have designated routes and if our observers could see them in Survey123 that would be much easier than switching back and forth between apps.
As a roads management organisation it is useful for our users to see the roads we manage when recording on Survey123.
Currently we're considering creating a tiled basemap service to achieve this, but clearly using a saved map instead is more manageable.
This is something that would make Survey 123 ideal for a roads and assets team. The survey is great but to be able to have reference map with the roads and associated assets display when they are completing the survey would be invaluable. Look forward to this hopefully being a very near future release of Survey 123
