Could be much better

I have tried to use this app from time to time and it has some nice maps but I’m continually frustrated with it. I,was using just now on my iPad and it would not hold the same location as I switched from one map to another. Also, it used to be possible to I port public domain maps, of which there much be thousands out there, into your device. But no longer. It seems very limited to me.

Incredible For Fast iPhone Access

I am new to ArcGIS & online mapping. Having worked under grants from the Cherokee Preservation Foundation (CPF) - Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI) for past 8 years mapping Indian trails, town sites, historical geography, etc, into Google Earth Pro and the old Nat Geo TOPO! programs, I was invited to create a series of online ESRI Story Maps for the Tribe & public. The GIS department head encouraged me explaining the simplicity using ESRI templates.

A mostly “help/tutorials” crash course in Arc Desktop and ESRI Story Maps one year later, I am preparing to demonstrate my still-primitive web maps and Story Map series to Tribal Elders, teachers, and the CPF BOD.

No good way on an iPhone in sketchy mountain country here near the Great Smokies.

I stumbled on the Explorer in Apple App Store in bed the other night and opened my web maps. Incredible! Fast, beautiful, and historic trails, Cherokee towns, mounds, ancestral place names, tagged + I discovered the popups displayed media photos and historic map details.

Some maps gave me the “Z” error also. Could have been the ghost of Zorro?

I can use this app as a “cultural GPS” on historical field trips with the Cherokee people and the public.

I can’t seem to get a shortcut icon on my iPhone screen yet.

Keep this going. We ArcGIS neophytes with limited GIS skills need this. Any advice appreciated.

No way to back out

It’s pretty good but it does have one major glaring bug. If you just download it for the first time for testing purposes and wind up on a map that requires signing in. Just forget it. The only way you can get the program to run is if you uninstall it and reinstall it from the store. I discovered once you’re on the logon screen there is no way to back out.
