Tech Talk Series: Map Literacy in Field Operations


In the article “Mobile Applications take GIS to the FIeld”, Christa Campbell comments on a ripple effect of benefits when organizations implement Web GIS and mobile applications in the field. Map literacy can be the Achilles' heel of field team efficiency. The truth is often field crews can have a limited understanding of maps and how to read them, much to their manager’s consternation. Driving adoption internally can be a daunting task without the right tool. How do you go from paper to digital? The answer is to show the maps in AR to field operators. This bypasses the need to be map savvy by bringing the map directly into the situation operators know and understand deeply. It opens the doors for more efficient use of man hours and can improve the overall quality of GIS data over time.  Join this webinar to learn more about how our clients are gaining traction in the adoption process, the benefits of ArcGIS mobile applications, and why AR is changing the way field operations see their maps. 

This will be a 40-minute online presentation with time for Q&A at the end.
