How can I create the left and right offset in the ArcGIS Online map like it is previewed in the youtube tutorial of Quick Capture?
If you want to apply an offset to your captured data, you would need to capture the offset and direction as attributes and then use them as the basis of a post-processing operation.
For example, you could have a button for 5m left and a button for 5m right. Capturing the lines would populate the Side field with Left or Right and the Offset field with 5. If you then updated a direction field using the direction of travel variable, you would have all you need to calculate the offset.
In ArcGIS Pro, you could calculate the offset direction as a new field. If the direction captured in the direction field was 0 degrees (North) then:
- A Left offset would be 0 + 270 = 270
- A Right offset would be 0 + 90 = 90
(If the answer equals 360 or more, then you would just need to minus 360 from the answer)
You will now have all the required inputs for the following tool:

To make the processing process easier. When collecting the lines, make sure that you stop and start lines when you reach an intersection or junction. Especially if you are changing direction.
Ricardo - there's a Learn ArcGIS tutorial referenced here that may provide insight on how to create/set-up the left/right side capture of data.
Thanks for the answer!Not totally what I was searching for but it helps to understand it more on how to capture left/right side data. Thanks for that!
Thanks for the answer! In the video it looked like when they where driving it automaticallly stores the date to the left and/or right side of the road (see the screenshot I sent). We where hoping that this was possible and not that afterwards it still needs to be processed.
Hi Ricardo, yes the video was to explain the concept only. The offsets can't be applied dynamically.
