ArcPad is mobile field mapping and data collection software designed for GIS professionals. It includes advanced GIS and GPS capabilities for capturing, editing, and displaying geographic information quickly and efficiently. Critical data can be checked in and out of a multi-user or personal geodatabase and shared across your organization.
ArcPad is part of an enterprise GIS platform and integrates directly with ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Server and ArcGIS Online. Designed to be easy to use, ArcPad provides an extensive set of tools for mobile GIS applications and tasks.
Create, edit, and analyze industry-standard vectors and raster images. Use data validation from your geodatabase, like subtypes and domains, or create multiple records for a single feature using related tables. Access Esri feature services (hosted or on-premises) via ArcGIS Server and ArcGIS Online.
ArcPad supports field devices, such as GPS receivers, range finders, barcode scanners, and digital cameras, with GIS data collection. Input from these devices is stored within the GIS.
A mobile component of ArcGIS, ArcPad integrates with desktop GIS technologies to allow field edits to be incorporated into a geodatabase through disconnected editing. It replaces the ArcPad tools for ArcGIS Desktop that came with previous versions of ArcPad.
The StreetMap extension is based on the TomTom dataset, with data for Europe and North America. This extension is a core ArcPad function and is included at no extra cost. It supports the Smart Data Compression (SDC) format and enables display, address and reverse geocoding, and routing capabilities.
