Ad hoc information, whether it be vegetation issues, unsafe conditions, or general network notes, is important to know at a utility. The map notes solution allows utility staff to record this information using a mobile device or web browser. Operation managers can then use this information to create work orders and better manage field operations.
Map Notes is a configuration of ArcGIS to use in the field or office. Field crews can access Map Notes on a mobile device using the Collector for ArcGIS app. Additionally, office staff can use Map Notes on a web browser using an web application template.
Map Notes requires specific technical experience and software.
