There have been a number of questions coming in about the next update for Collector and we are happy to announce that we are putting the finishing touches on an update now and it should be in your hands later this month!
Here is a preview of what is coming…
Application Ux Changes
We have made great strides in improving the overall look and feel of the app. This update is tablet friendly so we encourage you to install on your iPad or Android tablet when it comes out. For Apple users, the update looks great on iOS7.
Enhanced Data Collection Capabilities
As promised, we are extending our data capture support to lines and polygons so now you can collect point, line and polygon shapes. In addition to tapping on the map or tapping on the GPS to capture a location you can now capture lines and polygon boundaries on the go using GPS streaming. If you are using GPS we will show you the accuracy of the receiver as well so you can get a sense of its quality when collecting data.Finally we have added some optimizations for copying and collecting features similar to one another as well.
You can now leverage enterprise logins with ArcGIS Online. So if your organization is using an enterprise identity provider, Collector will authenticate you.
Here are a few screenshots of the new user experience for Collector 10.2…
