Collect and Edit GIS Field Data Without a Connection

— October 12, 2011

Science Applications International Corporation announced GeoRover Mobile, a new software solution enabling the collection of geographic information system (GIS) data in the field with or without network connectivity, in addition to traditional functionalities. GeoRover Mobile can be used to collect and edit field data for use by environmental, utility, law enforcement, education, land management, forestry, and government and defense personnel.
 
The application is a program that resides on mobile devices (phones or tablets) that operate using the Android platform and integrates available global positioning system (GPS) and Wi-Fi networks to provide current location data and other information. The application enables users to create waypoints, track logs and routes when connected to an internal or external GPS, including Bluetooth, to obtain real-time connection.
 
The software features the GeoRover Mobile Desktop extension for the Esri ArcGIS desktop application and the mobile application for Android devices. Using a unique Map-Pack process, the SAIC GeoRover Mobile solution can create maps packaged with other layers to quickly share information between desktop and mobile software applications.
 
 The toolbar allows users to easily import and export points, lines, and polygons from new or existing feature layers and base maps from raster datasets. Users can also link photos, including geotagged photos, or voice recordings to features within the mapping application.
