Collector with Disconnected Editing is coming soon…

The Collector team is hard at work integrating support for disconnected editing into our next release of Collector for ArcGIS (v10.2.2) in March. This is a big update for us and we thought it would be a good idea to start blogging now about what is coming.

Important Patch Now Available for ArcGIS 10.2

There is an important patch that we wanted to make sure you are aware of…  If you are experiencing crashes when opening Shapefiles, make sure you get this patch (Knowledge Base Article 41680).

At ArcGIS 10.2 there is a shapefile issue which results in a crash. This is caused by a buffer overrun that is most likely to occur when there are large numbers of fields in the dBase file.

The patch to fix this issue is available now for ArcGIS 10.2 for Desktop, Engine and Server users.

New Resources Available for Getting started with Python Map Automation

ArcGIS 10 provides a new Python
mapping module (arcpy.mapping) that allows you to interact with the contents of
map documents and layer files without necessarily needing to interactively open an
ArcMap session.  The methods, properties and functions available in this
new map scripting API enable you, for example, to automate changing data
sources, modify layer properties, export and print maps, as well as automate the
creation of
thematic maps and map series.  Because the new mapping module is part of
the ArcPy geoprocessing framework, scripts can be used within ArcGIS Desktop
but can also be published to ArcGIS Server as geoprocessing services making
it much easier to make mapping and printing capabilities available on the
server.

The following links are resources
that will help you learn more about arcpy.mapping, get access to popular
sample scripts available for download, and
links to new training resources:

Help Resources

  • A new Introduction to
    arcpy.mapping
    help topic is a great starting point. It includes
    links to a new arcpy.mapping tutorial and general guidelines for working with
    arcpy.mapping. ArcGIS Desktop help has a complete section
    dedicated to the ArcPy mapping module. Embedded within the help topics
    are over 100 different, practical help samples that can be copied/pasted into your applications. Be
    sure to review the “Best ways to get started” section.

Sample Applications

  • Approximately 20
    script tools
    that perform routine map and layer management tasks, printing and
    exporting, as well as basic cartographic operations.
    This is an excellent download because it
    includes many practical code samples that perform a variety of tasks and they
    are easy enough to modify for your own purposes.
  • A script
    tool
    that combines Data Driven Pages, arcpy.mapping, and the ReportLab site package to generate a reference map book that includes street index
    pages. It demonstrates how arcpy.mapping can be used to extend Data
    Driven Pages capabilities.
  • A script
    that incorporates Data Driven Pages and arcpy.mapping to build a map series
    that includes dynamic graphic tables. There is a very complete README.doc file
    included with the download that also addresses other useful tips and tricks
    that go along with the application.

 Web Courses

  • Basics of Python (for ArcGIS 10).
    This course teaches fundamental concepts you need to know to create
    Python scripts in ArcGIS. You will learn guidelines for proper Python syntax,
    techniques to troubleshoot common errors, and how to use loops to test for
    conditions and execute different code based on the result.
  • Python Scripting for Map Automation in
    ArcGIS 10
    .
    This course teaches how to automate map production and
    related data management tasks that would be time-consuming and tedious to
    perform manually. You will learn how to work with the mapping module of the
    ArcPy site package to quickly and easily update map layers and map document
    properties, modify map content, and produce individual maps and map books.

 Special thanks to David from the Mapping Team for sharing these links.
