Abandoned Mine Lands using iPads with GIS in the Field

Many people realize the advantages of having a device as portable as the iPad and appreciate the power that it wields. Obviously it has potential. But is it rugged enough for use in the mining and the field? What options exist for GIS? Use the ESRI cloud, or not? The ND Abandoned Mine Lands (AML) division has addressed these questions and based on the needs of the division, has issued their staff iPads for use in the field.

There are several heavy duty cases available for the iPad. AML is using the Otterbox case which completely seals the iPad (except for the speaker) and protects the device from environmental elements. It offers a high level of protection from drops or other impact. The stand is sturdy and doubles as a cover that snaps over the screen for additional protection.
