AUTHORS: G. Andrew Smith-Petersen, Laurel Jackson, and Keith M. Crogan - Portland Water District

ABSTRACT: The 1,700 acre Sebago Lake Land Reserve is a managed forest intended to protect Sebago Lake, the water source for 200,000 people in greater Portland. The Reserve, which is open to the public, features over 13 miles of trails and kiosks at 12 points of entry. The majority of these are found at one central 500 acre parcel, but several other smaller parcels and trail systems exist, making the upkeep of paper-based maps a challenge. Our staff envisioned a system whereby visitors could scan a QR code on their mobile device at any kiosk to see a map depicting their location. We wanted a solution that was low cost, easy to distribute, GPS-enabled, and with the ability to overlay our own data. We looked at a couple of options and settled on CarryMap, an ArcMap add-in that produces an offline iOS or Android map from a working ArcMap document. We will share the pros and cons we found in various solutions, as well as lessons learned in the process of producing the mobile map and distributing it to the public.
