More informations about this product

Description

ArcPad allows GIS users to capture, edit, analyze, and display geographic data via mobile devices.

In a typical scenario, a user checks out data from ArcGIS Desktop onto a mobile device, takes the device to a location in the field and updates or corrects the data, and then returns to the desktop computer and checks the data back in. However, ArcPad can also be used independently of ArcGIS Desktop.

This donation from Esri includes ArcPad for one user.

Here are some notable features of this product:

  • ArcPad can store data from GPS receivers, range finders, and integrated digital cameras.
  • ArcPad supports ArcGIS symbology and style sheets for high-quality mapping on mobile devices.
  • The software includes the StreetMap extension, which includes data derived from the Tele Atlas dataset and enables address geocoding and routing.
  • The user interface is available in a number of languages.
  • Working with ArcPad is a free online training course available to anyone on the Esri website. It teaches the basic skills necessary for using ArcPad and takes about three hours to complete.

More details and links to case studies can be found on the Esri website to help in evaluating whether this product is what is needed.

Free Add-ons

The ArcScripts website contains thousands of free user-created extensions, tools, and add-ons for any Esri product.

Single-User Version

This license is for a single-user version. Organizations that already own concurrent-user versions of any Esri software will not be able to use the product offered here with their concurrent-user version. Further, on a given computer, no single-user product can be used at the same time as any concurrent-user product.

This product must be installed and activated on only one computer.

Support and Maintenance

Esri will provide one year of product support and maintenance to recipients of this donation. In addition to telephone and online support, maintenance includes new software releases, service packs, patches, and hot fixes.

Before this year of free software maintenance and support expires, Esri will send a quotation for continuing software maintenance for the following year. Organizations have the option of purchasing the software maintenance from Esri, terminating the maintenance agreement and using the product without support, or applying to the Esri Conservation Program for a maintenance grant at http://www.conservationgis.org/grant/maintenancegrants.html. If the agreement is terminated and later reinstated, the organization will be billed for the lapsed maintenance period and the new annual maintenance period.
