Whenever possible, Smart Mapping aims to offload work from the map author to the machine. The goal is not to take control away from the author, but rather, make informed, intelligent choices and partner with the map author so we can all work faster.
Here are some tips and tricks to get the most out of Smart Mapping.
The Esri Development Team invites you to participate in a moderated and recorded Usability Study of 3 specific areas of ArcGIS Pro: Geodatabase Management, specifically schema design and data modeling, Map Layout, and 3D Editing.
Who we’re looking for:
- Existing ArcGIS for Desktop or current ArcGIS Pro users in the above mentioned areas
- Users of Esri Solutions (Local Government, Water Utilities, Land Records, Defense, Forestry, Hydrology)
- Users with varying degrees of experience who set up geodatabase schemas and model data, edit data, and design map layouts
In total, we’re looking for 30 testers.
How it works:
Our goal for this study is to assess the usability of the map layout, the 3D editing, and the schema design and data modeling functionalities of ArcGIS Pro; we want you to test our software, we’re not testing your ArcGIS skills.
To consider you as a usability tester, we require that you are registered and approved by your employer to attend the 2015 Esri User Conference and complete a pre-screening questionnaire—details below. Your time in the test lab is about 40 minutes.
Your test session will be recorded and observed by one or more members of the Development Team.

We thank you in advance for your time and look forward to meeting you in San Diego.
ArcGIS Data Reviewer is an extension to ArcGIS for Desktop and ArcGIS for Server that enables you to centrally manage the quality control (QC) life cycle—reviewing, correcting, and verifying errors—thereby eliminating paper trails associated with traditional QC processes. Esri recently released the Managing Data Reviewer Records for ArcGIS 10.3 template, which includes two Python scripts – Copy Data Reviewer Records and Export Data Reviewer Records to Shapefile. Both scripts were developed in response to customer requests for additional ways to manage and share quality information. Specifically, the scripts facilitate workflows for managing large numbers of records in an automated way and sharing error information with others who do not have Data Reviewer.
