We love ArcGIS at Pro-West because it can be used with something else we love to do: ice fish. Here is a really simple way that ArcGIS can make it easier for you to get outdoors and spend more time reeling in the big one!

The Fishing License Locator is a simple, online hosted application leveraged through Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS. It shows where you can pick up a fishing license from a participating License Agent. Inspired by Esri’s Hunting License Locator, the Fishing License Locator can be accessed from smartphones, tablets, and desktop computers.

We also encourage you to share your favorite ice fishing locations in our Fishing Hole Crowdsourcing app.

Just kidding! Minnesotans don’t give away their fishing spots.

Good luck out on the ice, and be sure to follow me on Twitter and LinkedIn.
