Here are the steps that i would go through to take the Riverside sample data into the field, and bring the edits back.
Unofficial stuff from the team behind the World's leading mobile GIS platform
GIS Day is a grassroots educational event that enables geographic information systems (GIS) users and vendors to open their doors to schools, businesses, and the general public to showcase real-world applications of GIS.
GIS Day is a global event. Organizations all over the world that use GIS, or are interested in GIS, participate by holding or sponsoring an event of their own. In 2005 more than 700 GIS Day events were held in 74 countries around the globe. The first GIS Day occurred in 1998.
GIS Day is held in the third week of November each year, on the Wednesday during Geography Awareness Week, a geographic literacy initiative sponsored by the National Geographic Society.
Let me break it down for you in a bit more detail with the ArcPad 10.0.3 Top 3:
#1 ArcPad AXF Extension for FME – This was one of the top ranked topics on the ArcPad Ideas Forum (http://ideas.arcgis.com). The ArcPad AXF Extension for FME allows ArcGIS users with FME 2011 SP4 to achieve the following:
#2 Python Support in ArcPad for Windows – In order to use Python as a scripting language in ArcPad, both the Python programming language (typically installed with ArcGIS 10) and the PyWin32 Python Extensions for Windows, are required. This allows for the use of Python Scripting in the ArcPad for Windows environment only. In ArcPad Studio, a Python tool has been added to allow for the use of Python Scripting during customisation of ArcPad Projects. If you have ArcMap installed on the same machine, you can now access the ArcPy module from within ArcPad.
#3 Updated StreetMap Datasets – StreetMap is used for geocoding, high quality cartographic display and the calculation of routes with driving directions. The ArcPad StreetMap Extension is based on StreetMap Premium for ArcGIS data derived from the TomTom (formerly TeleAtlas) dataset and now includes data for Europe in addition to North America. This extension is part of core ArcPad functionality and is included at no extra cost. It supports the Smart Data Compression (SDC) format and enables display, address geocoding, reverse geocoding, and routing capabilities. TomTom have provided an update to the StreetMap Premium Datasets for Europe and North America.
We have also improved localisation, updated our documentation, improved the ArcPad Toolbox Tools and much more.
