Latest ArcPad Release Makes Fieldwork More Efficient Print E-mail
Written by Esri   
Tuesday, 19 April 2011

Redlands, California—April 19, 2011—ArcPad 10.0.2, the latest version of Esri's feature-rich mobile GIS software application, now makes field mapping and data collection even easier. The new release extends customization options and annotation capabilities, simplifying tasks and increasing access to key geographic data.

ArcPad 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 multiuser or personal geodatabase and shared throughout an organization. The improved customization capabilities in version 10.0.2 let people more easily add, delete, or modify standard ArcPad tools.

Users can now create a custom ArcPad toolbar or multiple toolbars for various projects and tasks within the ArcPad environment. As in previous versions, users may still extend customization further by using ArcPad Studio to add custom tools that contain scripted actions and behavior.

Also new in 10.0.2 is an improved graphics layer and support for annotation targets. ArcGIS map annotation groups are now exported as individual graphics layers in ArcPad. There is better matching of text and geometry symbols between the ArcPad graphics layers and ArcGIS Desktop. Users can choose to export all annotation groups at once with the Get Data for ArcPad wizard or export one annotation group at a time with the Export Graphics Layer For ArcPad tool.

Other enhancements in ArcPad 10.0.2 include:
• Shortcut for ArcPad Apps—Users can create a shortcut to launch their ArcPad projects from the desktop or Today (main menu) screen. They can also choose to launch ArcPad with only their custom toolbars, not the standard (default) toolbars.
• Updated Help System—ArcPad Help has been improved with new topics and enhancements to existing menus and features.

For more information or to evaluate ArcPad, visit esri.com/arcpad. Users outside the United States can contact their local Esri distributor. For a current distributor list, visit esri.com/distributors.
