This course is intended for students who want to develop workflows for creating and collecting data offline using ArcGIS Online and Field Maps.
Software and Licenses
Students will need to be assigned an ArcGIS Online Field Worker, Creator, or GIS Professional user type by their ArcGIS Online Organizational Admin prior to class. Students need to bring their username and password and will need their own mobile device, running Android 8.0 or iOS 13.5 or later.
Field Maps should be downloaded to your device prior to class. It is recommended that students print off Exercise 5 in case students decide to collect data outside where GPS accuracy is higher.
Module 1: Introduction and Creating Editable Feature Layers in ArcGIS Online
Module 2: Configure Pop-Up’s and Smart Forms in Map Viewer
Module 3: Configure App Settings and Smart Forms in Field Maps Application in ArcGIS Online
Module 4: Packaging and Updating Map Areas for Offline Use
Module 5: Collecting, Editing, and Syncing Data in Field Maps
This one-day class teaches you workflows for creating and collecting data both online and offline using ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Field Maps. Students start with an introduction and use cases for Field Maps, followed by an in-depth lesson on creating editable features in ArcGIS Online and configuring Smart Forms in Map Viewer and Field Maps Application. Smart Form configuration lessons will include learning how to use Arcade to design conditional visibility of fields based on previous field entries.
From there they will learn how to create Offline Areas and download them to the Field Maps application on their mobile device. They will also learn how to add offline areas directly on the mobile device without having to first package them in ArcGIS Online. Lastly, they will learn how to configure Collection Settings on the device application, collect and edit observations through various methods, and finally how to create and share map markups.

Very informative and knowledgeable course. It help determine which direction I should take my further GIS and web programming skills.
