Powerful map customization options

Prior to export your ArcGIS map to mobile map, you can specify number of settings – define the map extraction boundaries, specify corporate identity to make your mobile map recognizable and personalized, create the identification templates, and so on.

Set extraction boundaries

The interactive mobile map can be created from any ArcGIS map or any part of it. To define which part of your ArcGIS map should be extracted to mobile map, use one of the provided map extraction boundaries selection options:

 

- selected map extent

- full extent of your map in ArcMap

- boundaries of specific polygon feature

- boundaries of drawn graphics.

Select layers to be extracted

Now you need to select which layers of your ArcGIS map should be transferred to mobile map. Thus, all these layers will be exported to mobile map as is, i.e. preserving all the source symbology, attributes, and attachments, if any.

Select layers to be identifiable

The additional information about surrounding objects may be very helpful, especially if you found yourself in the unfamiliar place. To make your mobile map as informative as possible, select the layers of your ArcGIS map that you want to be identifiable in the mobile map. That said, your users will be able to get information about the objects from these layers selecting them on the mobile map and viewing the appeared identification dialogs.

Add information about the map

The “Map info” dialog contains summary information about your mobile map, where you can specify the map publisher, as well as company name and logo, website, contact email or additional description.

Add watermarks

You can demonstrate your corporate identity by adding watermarks to your mobile map. These can be either text or any image with specified transparency and rotation angle settings.

Customize object identification cards

When preparing your ArcGIS map for export to mobile map you can specify the objects identification dialogs so that your users could get as more information about the map objects as possible. To do so, you can either use one of the predefined identification templates or create your own template, where you can add text, photos, videos, or other multimedia files. That said, your users will be able to view full information about the objects selecting them on the mobile map and viewing appeared identification dialogs.

 

By adding various multimedia files, you will be able to create the colorful and interactive electronic guides on national or amusement parks (for example, mobile map for the Novosibirsk zoo) as well as the detailed exploration works plans, etc.

 

Note that such customization of the identification cards requires basic HTML knowledges.
