Click to Register for the workshop.

Learn how to create and deploy form-based field surveys using Esri’s Survey123. Survey design is fast and flexible. Crew training is minimal. Imagine the additional capacity and outcomes working with field crews, seasonal workers, students, and the community.

  • Crew training is fast – 15 minutes!
  • Survey data can be collected on or offline
  • Data is automatically uploaded to AGOL when you move into cell or wifi range
  • Great for use in both natural and built environments


  • Quickly capture real-time data and observations in the field
  • Create surveys for form-based data collection
  • Utilize preset lists to speed and standardize naming and attribution
  • Incorporate free-form text descriptions and photos
  • Monitor crews and work progress
  • Explore collected data – locations, attribution, observations and photos

Skill-level and software requirements:

  • For people with 4 or more months of active hands-on experience working with AGOL
  • Participants MUST have an AGOL organizational named user account (required!)
  • Your account must have a “publisher” or “creator role”
  • Contact your GIS Administrator to grant you a publisher or creator role before class
  • You will also need Excel on your computer to develop complex surveys

Need software?


  • A public AGOL account will not work for this class
  • You will not need an ArcGIS Pro for this class
