Take notes while offline using downloaded map packages. Share your maps with friends and business associates.

Very excited about this app

I signed up for a trial license for this app three days ago and started right in working with it on an iPad Pro. I had a little trouble setting up my first project on ArcGIS following the video and written instructions on the developers website, but was successful on the second attempt. I sent the iPad off with my very not-tech-oriented husband and business partner today after having given him a twenty minute orientation on using Draw Maps. A couple of hours later I logged into ArcGIS and was able to watch him drawing and making notes on the map in real time. It really is very simple to use and it does exactly what I needed it to do. We are very happy to have this available and excited to see what’s coming in the future with this app.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for your kind words. We plan to double down on our efforts to provide better documentation, especially for ArcGIS Online setup, but also for other aspects of using Draw Maps to its fullest.

This App

The app was useless. I downloaded this app because I needed to make myself a map for a game. I could not sign up at all, so I rate this app 1 star!

Developer Response ,

We are sorry to hear that you are dissatisfied with Draw Maps for ArcGIS. This edition of Draw Maps is intended for use with Esri’s ArcGIS, therefore it requires an ArcGIS Online Named User account. For people without access to an Esri ArcGIS Named User account we recommend our standard edition of Draw Maps also found on the App Store entitled “Draw Maps: Map Notes” (the one with the blue icon).
