Overview

Ad hoc information, whether it be vegetation issues, unsafe conditions, or general network notes, is important to know at a organization. The map notes solution allows staff to record this information using a mobile device and view the results in a web app.

Map Notes is a configuration of ArcGIS for use in the field or office. Office staff can access this solution on a web browser using an ArcGIS configurable web application template and field crews can access it on a smartphone or tablet with the Collector for ArcGIS application.
