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.

The Browser app now supports labels that you add to layers in your web map, we have replaced the graphics library used for charting and graphing widgets to improve clarity and readability, we addressed several minor stability updates with the Dashboard heartbeat and improved popup support within dynamic map services.
The best news – you don’t need to do anything to pick up these updates! Enjoy!

Basemap layers play an important role in the field work that you do – they provide a geographic reference when collecting or updating data in the field. You can choose from a number of Esri-provided basemap layers or you can use the landbase, aerial imagery or any other reference layers you create and manage within your GIS.
When you need to work offline – Esri basemaps can be downloaded directly to your smartphone or tablet using the Collector app and we provide quite a few of them for you to choose from. Continue reading
