This is a General Question on a possible workflow for Survey Data directly to ArcGIS
In most GIS/Survey workflows there is a field collection team and backoffice GIS team.
When the availability of high-end mapping devices are there, why can we directly edit a Geodatabase in a Survey device or rather create a GIS feature in Survey device itself, eliminating the CAD and GIS feature creation ?
What my Question is , is there any Survey Device ( Totalstation etc) currently supporting data editing in GIS format ? Is there any Survey device capable to support a full fledged Geodatabase ?
