Monitor surveys

The Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS application can be used to visualize and summarize photo surveys as they are submitted. Photo surveys can then be monitored to view overall progress and determine if the property condition reported through the survey needs further attention.

The Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS application consumes maps that are accessible to named users in your ArcGIS Online organization. Create a Photo Survey map and share it with operations staff responsible for monitoring photo surveys. Operations staff can then access the configurations of the Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS applications on their desktop computers and tablet devices.
