Ok, lets get started with a new account…
So before you start using CalTrap, you will need a ArcGIS Enterprise User Account. Please go to following link to submit a account request. There are two types of accounts; Production or Staging accounts.
The staging environment is used for testing purposes such as: setting up test routes, testing new iPadOS versions, and testing new enhancements before they are added to the production environment.
The production environment is where the actual trapping activities will take place on the Admin Desktop application and the iPad Trapper application.
The Production link should take you to the following page: CalTrap Online Registration
User Roles and Permissions
When a user requests access to CalTrap, they can select from multiple roles (see ROLE column in the matrix below). The Administrator can approve the user’s selected role or select a different role to meet desired access for that person.
The matrix below shows what functions each role can access in CalTrap Administrator. The functions are organized by each tab within the application (Survey, Assignment and Reporting). The Navigation tab is available to all roles so it isn’t included in this matrix. Note that Field Staff, CASS, Researcher and Rover have the same access to functions. Counties can use the different role names as needed to organize their staff assignments.
