Frequently Asked Questions
Almost nothing! The Argis Lens is built to be able to translate GIS data from your ArcGIS system. Just follow these 2 steps
Publish data you want to see in AR as feature services.
While the Argis Lens can read and access GIS data from ArcGIS Enterprise, it is an easier experience to publish GIS data onto ArcGIS online (AGOL).
None! Argis Solutions provides a secure and private interface to connect to your GIS data for AR visualization. Your data remains protected by your own Esri user IDs and passwords.
No! While the Argis Lens does seamlessly integrate with ArcGIS, you do not need an Esri Identity for each user of the Argis Lens. If you want to use Esri Identity for your Argis Lens users, no problem! It is not a requirement, though.
No! Very few organizations have Z-data for all of their assets and GIS database. The Argis Lens adds a digital elevation model to your GIS data for real world context. If you do have Z-data, that’s great! The Argis Lens also offers ground offset elevation viewing for Z-data sets.
Exactly like its designed in your ArcGIS system. By digesting feature services, the Argis Lens translates GIS directly, using the same color legend and system for ease of use and understanding.
All attribute data that is linked to your GIS data is accessible through the Argis Lens. This Includes 3rd party data that is integrated into ArcGIS.
The Argis Lens is based on user ID, not mobile device. So you can have the Argis Lens on multiple devices, but not have the same user logged onto 2 devices at the same time. Administers do not need a license to use the Argis Console, our administrative website.
The Argis Lens is as accurate as the GPS unit it is connected to. End users will experience better accuracy of their data if they are using some type of blue tooth or commercial grade GPS unit that is paired with the iOS device.
