What is ArcGIS Mission Manager

ArcGIS Mission Manager is a web app you can use to create, interact with, and organize missions. It provides a variety of tools and capabilities that can be used for the following:

  • Creating mission maps
  • Organizing mission members and teams
  • Participating in active missions
  • Overseeing mission members during missions
  • Managing activity from Responder users during active missions

Using ArcGIS Mission Manager is the only way you can create a mission. When you create a mission, you can use map tools, provide supporting materials, and assign specific roles to users to prepare for a successful mission. Manager is also used when the mission is active. You can track other users in Responder, update graphics, and provide new information as necessary in real time once the mission is active.

ArcGIS Mission Manager in ArcGIS Mission

ArcGIS Mission has three components: Manager, Responder, and Server. Most of the preparation for a mission is done through ArcGIS Mission Manager, so a large part of your work happens before the mission begins. This includes creating and organizing the mission maps and teams and overseeing the mission by managing communications, the active map, and so on. However, you can track the location and activity of Responder users during the mission, update or correct map overlays and graphics, provide new information to users as necessary, or relay information between teams. This includes overseeing all the activities in Responder.

Use ArcGIS Mission Manager

You use Manager to create the mission. However, you can view missions in different statuses such as draft, active, and complete. You can also do the following:

  • Add or edit the mission details.
  • Create and edit the mission map.
  • Add and remove members from a mission.
  • Create mission teams.
  • Monitor the mission feed containing chats and other mission activity.
  • Add materials to help mission members.
