Esri Collector for ArcGIS

and service requests to places of historical interest—create the data
that matters most to your organization.
Use the Collector app offline to
collect and edit maps and data
regardless of your network
availability.
Note: Because Collector for ArcGIS is a
feature of ArcGIS Online, you will need an
ArcGIS Online organizational account
