Here is my situation, currently we have a number of employees updating a copy of a checked out axf database using ArcPad on mobile devices. Our current process is very time consuming since it involves uploading the axf file, checking in the axf to a version SDE geodatabase and then check out the axf again to get the most updated version of the axf with their edits, plus the checked in edits of other users. Also, this is in a disconnect environment. The users are usually in a remote location with limit internet access. My question is this, does ArcGIS have a web service that will allow a user to “check in” their changes and then “check out” all the edits to update their personal copy of the axf with the most recent data? I am looking for a solution to allow bi-directional updates to the data in almost real-time? If anyone has done this or something like it, I would really like to hear your ideas on how to solve this issue or the reasons why this will not work? Or if someone has a totally different approach I would like to your ideas as well.
