Updating Hosted Feature Services in ArcGIS Online

Using web maps powered by Hosted Feature Services you can rapidly deploy field collection schemas to the field for use with Collector for ArcGIS. You can publish map layers directly from ArcMap that have awesome templates with great forms that include pick lists just the way you modeled them in the geodatabase.

But no matter how much of a GIS rock star you are, you won’t get that schema 100% right the first time. So what do you do when you miss a domain value, template or you misspell a field alias?  Your field team is out there, collecting stuff. You can’t republish the service!

Well did you know that you can update the schema without having to republish? It’s true. You can add a domain value, remove a template, update the alias for a field.

Here is a document that shows you How to Update Hosted Feature Service Schemas.

Esri Mobile App Updates

Collector for ArcGIS and Explorer for ArcGIS updated this week.

The updates were minor bug fix releases but there are a couple of new features worth noting:

  1. Both Collector and Explorer now support Thai as a new language. 
  2. Explorer added support for viewing public maps shared to ArcGIS.com without having to sign in as a named user of an ArcGIS Online organization.
For iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users, we are finalizing another quick update to both Collector and Explorer to add support for their new 4.7″ and 5.5″ retina displays.
