Eos Positioning Systems, Inc has released capability in its Eos Tools Pro apps (iOS, Android, Windows) that allows Collector for ArcGIS and Survey123 to run concurrently, allowing the user to dynamically switch between the two apps in the field. “Without this capability, users could not run two data-collection apps, such as Collector and Survey123, or ArcGIS Field Maps and ArcGIS QuickCapture, at the same time,” Eos Chief Technology Officer Jean-Yves Lauture said. “With this release, parties can run multiple apps on a single device that simultaneously consume high-accuracy positioning data from the Arrow GNSS receiver.”
This new capability allows fieldworkers to run two apps at the same time while accessing the same ArcGIS Online database. Specifically, a user can now record a high-accuracy GNSS location in Collector and then immediately switch to an open Survey 123 form to complete their workflow. The data, including precise positioning will be populated to the same ArcGIS Online database.
Bentley Systems and Microsoft Corp. have announced an expansion of a strategic alliance focused on advancing infrastructure for smart city urban planning and smart construction. The alliance will combine Microsoft’s Azure IoT Digital Twins and Azure Maps with Bentley Systems’ iTwins platform, enabling engineers, architects, constructors and city planners to work within a comprehensive city-scale digital twin, empowering better decision-making, optimizing operational efficiency, reducing costs and improving collaboration. www.bentley.com

Esri releases Community Health Assessment Solution
The Community Health Assessment Solution was created by Esri to help health organizations collect community information, at the household-level, required for disaster response or health action plans. The solution delivers a set of capabilities that include: planning community health survey areas, collecting survey responses from households, and monitoring key indicators as the assessment occurs.
The solution follows the Community Assessment for Public Health Emergency Response (CASPER) framework. The World Health Organization developed this framework which has been adopted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A CASPER survey calls for a two-stage cluster sampling methodology which is made easier with the Community Health Assessment Solution.
