What is VertiGIS Studio Mobile?

VertiGIS Studio Mobile is a framework for configuring and building mobile offline-capable custom apps on Esri's platform. Mobile is part of the VertiGIS Studio suite of products.

You can use the Mobile framework to build mobile, offline-capable apps that can run on Android, iOS, or Windows platforms. Mobile apps make it possible to pan and zoom the map, search for features, review attributes, add and edit features, add attachments, and track your movements in real time. Integration with VertiGIS Studio Workflow ensures that you can build apps for many business processes. Mobile apps can be used in the field to collect data, including photos and documents that can be attached to the map, perform inspections, or add and edit ArcGIS features.
