This is a basic workflow for GIS Pro & GIS Kit for iPad & iPhone.
STEP 1: Create a new project from the Project Manager.
STEP 2: Import any available GIS Data relative to your site including Google earth (KML) files, Shapefiles and Raster files (geo-tiff, jpg, etc). Importing can be accomplished by email or by connecting your device to a computer with iTunes. The import button is located at the bottom left corner of your Project Menu.
STEP 3: Cache base maps that you plan to use. This will ensure that you have the map tiles you need when your device is not within your provider’s data coverage area.
STEP 4: Select Feature Class Datasets that best suit your project requirements. In the Feature Classes Menu turn on datasets that you plan to use. Turn off datasets you will not use. You can also create your own feature classes from this dialog.
STEP 5: Go to your site and collect data using GPS & manual drawing features. Enter attribute data.
STEP 6: Export collected data via email or connect your device to any computer running iTunes to export larger files. Export KML/KMZ files for viewing the data in Google Earth. Export Shapefiles if you intend to generate maps or a geodatabase using advanced desktop software. Export CSV files to see attribute data in spreadsheet form.
