Esri Releases Survey123 for ArcGIS with Spike Integration

Esri, the global leader in spatial analytics, has announced the software release of Survey123 for ArcGIS mobile application with Spike, a laser measurement solution by ikeGPS. This paired technology accelerates field data capture and asset inspection activities. Spike allows users to measure hard-to-reach objects from a distance simply by taking a photo with their smartphone or tablet. Users can then capture real-time measurements from that image, including areas, elevations, distances between two points, and GPS/GNSS location. Use of the Survey123 integration with Spike will be of particular interest to organisations that routinely utilise mobile workflows for asset and facilities management, field... (read more)

Looking at Where Value Comes From - Esri User Conference 2015

Opening events, Pete Wilkinson, Esri’s head of customer success, urged us to use the downloadable event app. Alas, he later had to apologise for some of its shortcomings within the rambling floors and halls of Westminster’s QEII centre. Handing over to Esri CEO Stuart Bonthrone, the day began in earnest. In a wide-ranging introduction to the day, he argued that business needs to transform rapidly in the face of climate change; and GIS has a role to play. Ahead of us was learning about topics as diverse as air pollution, story mapping for Crimestoppers, endangered biodiversity, Ireland’s new water authority,... (read more)
