Mobile Map Apps
ArcGIS Explorer App | Avenza (Geospatial PDF) App
"Mobile Apps" are native applications, applications that are downloaded and installed on a mobile device. The ESRI ArcGIS Explorer App provides interactive map functionality and requires cell service to work properly in the field. Geospatial PDF apps such as Avenza do not require cell service to work in the field if maps are downloaded prior to entering an area with spotty or no cell service.
Both will work with a smartphone's GPS to locate the phone's current position on a map.
Support For ArcGIS Explorer: The North Dakota Game and Fish Department is unable to provide support for problems that may be encountered when installing and using the ESRI ArcGIS Mobile App software. Please see the Esri support website for software information and installation help.
