Today I attended Bruce Godfrey’s Apps for the Field: Mobile Data Collection using ArcGIS Online workshop. Bruce is UI’s GIS Librarian and demonstrated two apps for field collection, Collector and Survey123.
Collector is map-centric and Survey123 is form-centric. Both are fairly intuitive to use with ArcGIS Online and all students, staff and faculty at UI can use the organization license for teaching, research and non-commercial use. Users just need to email Bruce to get their UI log-in credentials connected to that site. I spoke with him about uploading video through ArcGIS’s Story Maps and he said he thinks video files can be hosted through ArcGIS Online’s server. This will be a huge benefit for my Idaho’s LGBTQ Community oral history project. I’m excited to collect enough data to begin mapping.
