Real Time Data Collection with Mobile MapWorks


GIS data does not begin in the office or on the desktop.  GIS data represents the real world and influences decisions that impact everyday human interactions with the world.

Doesn’t it make sense, to collect our data with this global perspective in mind?

Mobile MapWorksMobile-MapWorks-2015, offered within the Platform Suite of the Power Portfolio, is a practical tool for local governments, transportation authorities, utilities, communications providers, and more. Easy to configure, this app enables you to directly see, edit, validate, and update your enterprise GIS data from the field in real time.

Mobile MapWorks lets you easily leverage the knowledge of field personnel to ensure that your GIS data accurately reflects the real world. Users can easily control update capabilities, enabling more personnel to participate in field coverage.  The application’s simple and intuitive user interface requires little training and makes new users more productive in little or no time.

  • Using Mobile MapWorks Layer Control – Introduces the tools to quickly change you map display for the most efficient navigation and data collection.
  • Using the Mobile MapWorks Naviagion Controls – Introduces available search and navigation methods useful when collecting real time data.
