DeLorme Introduces ArcSync

Software Engine Provides Two-Way Synchronization Between Field Databases and ArcGIS Feature Classes

Yarmouth, Maine – July 24, 2012 – DeLorme, the innovation leader in professional mapping technology and field data deployment, today announced the introduction of ArcSync, a software engine that allows customers to transfer field data edits to Esri repositories and synchronize field databases with the internal GIS database.

ArcSync automates the process of defining and scheduling tasks, providing automatic data flow and keeping field and office databases in sync.

“The ArcSync engine is an automated tool that streamlines the synchronization between field data collection and the ArcGIS database at headquarters,” said John Auble, DeLorme vice president, data products and HA/DR programs. “It is the ideal solution for organizations with a need to collect and distribute GIS data to field personnel in a disconnected format. It creates disconnected GIS layers from ArcGIS feature classes and maintains synchronization as changes are made via DeLorme, ArcMap or other Esri tools.”

Auble noted that ArcSync permits the GIS Admin to ensure data viewed in the field is current for both the connected and disconnected GIS user, pushing work tickets to field personnel in an automated fashion so that critical data can be collected in a timely manner. It also allows for a scheduled automated process to run in order to make sure that all databases are in sync, eliminating the need for GIS Admin to spend time processing files manually to keep the field database and internal GIS database synchronized.

In addition to ArcSync, DeLorme is showcasing its full range of mapping, positioning and tracking solutions in Booth 2407 at the 2012 Esri Users Conference this week.
