What is it?

Why would you use it?

Public Users

The S1 Mobile Mapper provides the public with a simple way to download and view BLM and U.S. Forest Service maps for use offline while enjoying recreational activities on public lands. The public version of the app also has the ability to navigate to user defined locations, collect Tracklogs, Waypoints, and GeoTag photos.

Agency Users

Given that agency field personnel commonly work in remote areas with no network access, this application's emphasis is on the display, collection and update of geospatial data and attributes in an offline environment. Content is downloaded to the mobile device when connected to the internet then offline edits are synced back to servers when network connectivity is available again.

The S1 Mobile Mapper is designed to allow offline mobile field data collection capabilities not available using commercial mapping applications and to meet the specific data collection needs of the federal agencies served by the OR/WA Service First Mobile GIS program. The application leverages web services from ArcGIS Online organizational accounts and internal ArcGIS Server web services to distribute, collect, and update Geographic Information Systems (GIS) information by agency field personnel.
