Guide

This guide describes how to build iOS applications that incorporate capabilities such as mapping, geocoding, routing, geoprocessing, and other spatial analytics provided by ArcGIS Online or your own on-premises ArcGIS servers. A great place to start is to install and set up and learn about the SDK by stepping through the first tutorial, Add a map to your app. For what's new in this release, see Release notes.

With ArcGIS Runtime SDK for iOS, you can do the following:

  • Display web maps that have been authored with ArcGIS Online or your own on-premises ArcGIS portal.
  • Mashup map services from ArcGIS Online or your own on-premises ArcGIS server to create unique maps. Display maps in any projection.
  • Search for features in a map using SQL queries or spatial criteria,
  • Display map details through informational pop-ups on features.
  • Collect locations by sketching on the map or using the GPS sensor of the device.
  • Perform spatial analysis through geoprocessing tasks and services.
  • Match addresses to locations (geocode) and locations to addresses (reverse-geocode).
  • Calculate drive times and multistop routes with driving directions.
  • Perform geometric operations and compute spatial relationships between features.
  • Use your map data offline.
    • Download basemap tiles.
    • Edit feature data offline.
    • Synchronize local edits with the server.
    • Perform blazing fast searches for addresses and routes.
