Esri Explorer for ArcGIS Now Available on Android

App taps into rich maps for visual information sharing

Redlands, California—December 15, 2014—Esri today released its highly anticipated Android version of  Explorer for ArcGIS. The native Android app offers access anywhere to data-rich, visually stunning maps. It combines the industry leader in mapping software, Esri, with the world’s most popular mobile-device platform, Android.

Governments, utilities, natural resources, and other commercial businesses have already used Explorer for ArcGIS on iOS and OS X to brief stakeholders, tell stories, and find assets. A sketch function enables highlighting and collaborating. In addition, presentation features make map slides easy to navigate and allow teams to interact with mapped information.

The app intelligently scales to device size. Any owner of an Android smartphone or tablet (version 4.0 and up) can explore Esri public maps from anywhere. Examples of public maps you can view include data-rich views of the Bakken oil fields of North Dakota, Alaska’s glacial retreats, and life expectancy by country.

Users with an ArcGIS Online subscription or Portal for ArcGIS account consume the full power of the app. They gain access to their own and their organization’s maps and data.

Explorer for ArcGIS draws on its native Android operating system with sharing capabilities including e-mail, text messaging, and push notifications.

A Windows version of Explorer is set to be released next year. It will add to Esri’s growing suite of mobile apps that puts intelligent maps into the hands of people with zero to high GIS experience.

Test-drive Explorer for ArcGIS by downloading it for free from the  Google Play Store. Learn more about Explorer for ArcGIS at  esri.com/explorerapp.
