ArcPad Packages

Hi everyone,
We have created a new ArcPad Package type for organisations within ArcGIS Online. You can load two different types of package: Templates and Projects.
Upload your current ArcPad Templates and use ArcGIS Online as your content management system for distribution to field workers.

Once downloaded and opened, a template creates a new project. The template is reused and each created project can be uploaded to ArcGIS Online for collation within ArcGIS for Desktop e.g. a Council has different contractors working in the field and everyday the contractor must show the work they have done. Using the official Council ArcPad Template Package, they collect data each day and post the project folder back to ArcGIS Online. The GIS administrator can then download the data and compile the results.

Check out the QuickProject Template Tool – http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=c05ecfb600d4466a81d46efc82cde94a to help you create your templates ready to upload.

ArcGIS for iOS and iOS 6.0 release

On Wednesday September 19th, Apple will release a new version of their mobile operating system (iOS 6.0) ahead of launching new iPhone 5 devices. In certifying the final release seed of iOS 6.0 we have uncovered several problems with the existing ArcGIS application.

If your organization is currently using the ArcGIS application on iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch devices we encourage you to wait until we update to the ArcGIS application before upgrading devices to iOS 6. We are finalizing our changes now and anticipate submitting to Apple’s App Store shortly. Once approved you will receive an update notification on your device and we will send out notification with another blog post.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
