ESRI's ArcPad 7.1.1 Software Now Available

                                 Latest Version Improves Performance and Productivity in the Field

Redlands, California - June 16, 2008 —ArcPad 7.1.1 and ArcPad Application Builder 7.1.1, the latest versions of ESRI's mobile geographic information system (GIS) software for field mapping and data collection, have been released. New improvements in ArcPad 7.1.1 enhance the user experience by increasing productivity and ease of use in the field.

ArcPad products are designed for a variety of industries and organizations wanting to extend the benefits of GIS from the office to the field. Together with ArcPad Application Builder, the development and customization framework for ArcPad, version 7.1.1 improves the field data collection process and allows mobile users to make decisions quickly and accurately.

ArcPad provides mapping, GIS, and GPS integration to users via handheld mobile devices. The software can be customized for specific field projects using ArcPad Application Builder. ArcPad software also integrates with ESRI desktop technologies, allowing field edits to be incorporated through disconnected editing. "With the latest ArcPad release, we have incorporated customer feedback from version 7.1 in an effort to improve productivity and the overall ArcPad experience for our users," says Jian Lange, product manager for ArcPad.

Highlights of the ArcPad 7.1.1 release include

  • StreetMap Desktop Data Extractor—The StreetMap Desktop Data Extractor utility allows users to easily extract data from the StreetMap Premium Tele Atlas North American dataset that was first included with ArcPad 7.1 core functionality. Users can save the extracted area of interest to a desktop PC and transfer it to a mobile device operating ArcPad in the field.

  • Performance improvements with StreetMap—Performance improvements result in a noticeable increase in available memory while StreetMap is running.

  • Enhanced relational database support—Related tables support based on the Microsoft SQL relational database has been improved in 7.1.1 with bug fixes and enhancements including global ID support in the geodatabase.

  • Satellite objects added—A new property called Satellites has been added to the GPS object, increasing efficiency and ease of use. Satellites will return a collection of satellite objects. Developers can update third-party GPS extensions to access these objects.
