Part of the Esri Geospatial Cloud, Collector for ArcGIS, a mobile data collection app, makes it easy to capture accurate data and return it to the office. Fieldworkers use web maps on mobile devices to capture and edit data. Collector for ArcGIS works even when disconnected from the Internet and integrates seamlessly into ArcGIS.

Capture & report data

Efficient data collection

Collector’s intuitive interface enables field workers of all experience levels with map-driven forms to capture and return accurate field data that integrates seamlessly into ArcGIS. For any asset or observation, you can document countless details using photos, videos or audio recordings.

A single source of truth

Data captured with Collector feeds directly into ArcGIS, so everyone, in the field and the office, works from the same accurate data.  Your as-built infrastructure can be accurately documented to reflect reality as compared to what was planned.

No more paper forms

Free your workforce of the manual processes of collecting field data on paper forms that must be returned to the office, then translated into other systems. Collector streamlines these workflows, using smart devices to capture data in the field and seamlessly return it to the office.

Works anywhere, anytime

Add new assets and update existing GIS data in any environment, remote to urban, on your authoritative maps.  In connected environments, your data will feed directly into ArcGIS. In disconnected environments, it will reside on your device then sync as soon as connectivity is available. 

Improved data accuracy

Collector uses your device’s location service to identify your position.  Authoritative maps ensure field-captured location data, updates and additions are accurate.  When required, achieve up-to-centimeter accuracy using a professional-grade or high-accuracy GPS receiver. Collector supports both options.

How Collector works


In ArcGIS, create a map for your data collection project. Design the form your field workers will use.


On your mobile device, efficiently capture assets and observations, and perform inspections. Collect accurate locations and fill out map-driven forms.


Field-captured data is a single source of truth to use throughout your organisation. Enable stakeholders to monitor projects and perform analysis.
