Feature Editing in Mobile ArcGIS Online

 
October 2nd, 2012 by Matt Sheehan


So we’ve been spending quite some time with the very cool editing capabilities of the ArcGIS FeatureLayer. We are most interested in services published to ArcGIS Online. Editing will be a key advantage mobile brings to the world of ArcGIS. Avoiding the details (maybe in a future post), but not all ArcGIS FeatureLayers are the same. We wanted to put together a demo of the editing of a Featurelayer which contains a featureCollection, from the ESRI docs:

“The featureCollection is used when you want to initialize the FeatureLayer with features from outside of ArcGIS Server.”

This lends itself well to offline editing.

ArcGIS Mobile Editing

In the demo below we are online and accessing the app via a mobile browser (note, this demo needs Flash and thus wont run on an iOS device):

Here is a link to the actual Mobile GIS Editing Application

Many organisations are trying to both understand mobile GIS and justify its adoption. Efficiency and cost savings are key factors in this decision process. We see the ability of field workers to add, delete and edit features while on site as being very important. Those who have adopted GIS, will quickly see the many benefits this mobile workflow brings to daily operations. Editing will be crucial in tipping the balance in many organisations towards the widespread use of mobile GIS.
