In addition to the new video above, “Get to Know Field Maps,” Esri has released a variety of helpful announcements and resources this year for current ArcGIS apps users who are familiarizing themselves with Field Maps.

Advanced GNSS data capture within the new Field Maps app

Esri ArcGIS Field Maps supports two Eos solutions: Eos Locate for underground utility mapping and Eos Laser Mapping for laser gis

In addition to supporting basic high-accuracy data capture, Field Maps also supports advanced workflows, such as:

  1. Eos Laser Mapping™ for laser offsetes
  2. Eos Locate™ for underground utility mapping

For users currently using the above solutions, your workflows will feel very similar, if not the same, when using Field Maps as compared to ArcGIS Collector with your Arrow GNSS receiver.

For more information

Eos will periodically update this article to include new announcements pertaining to Field Maps.
