Esri 2016 User Conference: Q&A Highlights

June 22nd, 2016 by Drew Millen

At Latitude Geographics, we enjoy the rituals of preparing for the biggest annual event we attend: The Esri User Conference. One of these rituals I particularly enjoy is poring over Esri’s meticulously prepared, pre-conference publication, called the Esri UC Q&A.

Each year it provides meaningful insights into Esri’s themes, message, strategy, and concrete development plans, and its coverage is extremely broad.

The 2016 edition emphasizes a key theme that is increasingly relevant to partners like us, and all organizations that use ArcGIS: the Web GIS pattern.

Rather than paraphrasing, I’ve captured some of the key questions that thoroughly describe Web GIS:

  • Can you explain what a Web GIS is?
    This is a great starting point for learning about Web GIS: Esri’s definitive explanation of the term.
  • What is the big idea with Web GIS?
    Esri’s response to this question describes an ambitious, global vision with comparisons to the Internet itself. This certainly is a ‘big idea’!
  • What is the Geoinformation Model, and why is it important?
    Most of the information in this answer is provided via the ArcGIS Online Help link provided. All software systems start with some sort of ‘model’. It’s great to see the formalization of the term Geoinformation Model to describe the building blocks of portals and Web GIS.
  • What is a web map and why is that important?
    I think that web maps form the central currency of ArcGIS Online, Portal for ArcGIS… and therefore a Web GIS. While Geocortex currently consumes web maps, we’re also doing a lot of engineering work right now to make web maps even more integral to our software.

At Latitude, we’re laser focused on building software that complements Web GIS implementation approaches. Geocortex integrates with ArcGIS Online and Portal for ArcGIS, it consumes web maps and other aspects of the Geoinformation Model, and leverages ArcGIS identities to personalize app experiences and provide the right content to the right users. We spent a considerable amount of time discussing Web GIS at our own user conference in May, and are committed to helping our customers understand it as it continues to influence technology changes.

Another interesting takeaway from the Q&A is how Esri’s position of ArcGIS Server is evolving. No, I’m not referring to this (I have no comment on that), there’s a far more interesting question worth a read, and a re-read: How would you describe ArcGIS for Server today? Succinctly, we’re seeing ArcGIS for Server positioned as all aspects of the Web GIS that might run on premise, including the traditionally independently positioned Portal for ArcGIS, and server extension products. ArcGIS Server is far more than just the GIS server in its classic form, and it’s empowering to think of it as a the on-premises component of a broad-reaching Web GIS.

We’re excited about heading down to San Diego next week to and talk about all things Web GIS with Esri and our customers! Come visit us in Booth 311, and visit our event page to sign up for some of the presentations, demonstrations, and get togethers we have planned.

Geocortex and ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.0

May 3rd, 2016 by Drew Millen

You may have heard today’s announcement; Esri’s long anticipated and landmark ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.0 has been released! As consumers of Esri’s JavaScript API in Geocortex Viewer for HTML5, we couldn’t be more excited because it helps usher in the next generation of web GIS (including 3D).

Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 (GVH) 1.0 was released more than 4 years ago, built on ArcGIS API for JavaScript 2.8. Today, GVH 2.6 uses the 3.16 version (the most recent release of the 3.x line).

The 4.0 release is effectively a ground-up rewrite that was required to properly take advantage of modern web development patterns and introduce 3D capabilities. According to Esri:

“Version 4.0 is a substantial overhaul of the ArcGIS API for JavaScript and its mapping components. Consider rewriting applications instead of simply trying to update them.”

I often receive questions about our plans for 4.0. Effectively, we’re following Esri’s advice and we’re creating an all new 3.x version of Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 that will be based on the new ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.x.

It’s a big project that got underway last summer, and will likely continue into the first-half of 2017. We won’t be able to supersede GVH 2.x until the 4.0 API offers all of the capabilities available with 3.16. Specifically, many of our customers take advantage of drawing, editing, capturing geometry, OGC support, and other features that are yet not available in the 4.x version.

For this reason, we will continue to release additional versions of GVH 2.x before GVH 3.0 is released, as there is lots of useful work for us to do that’ll see heavy use by customers in the full-featured, 2D-only space.

The day will come when GVH 3.0 supersedes 2.x; at that time, we’ll enable our customers to simply upgrade their applications from 2.x to 3.x, and start leveraging all of the great capabilities that the 4.x ArcGIS API has to offer… without losing any functionality or having to rewrite applications (except for custom code they’ve created).

Applications – or aspects of applications that leverage configured modules or provide custom functionality via Geocortex Workflows — will be directly upgradeable. Customers and partners that have written custom code on top of GVH 2.x to solve unique and specific use cases will likely need to update or rewrite that custom code to migrate because 4.0 is a fundamentally new API (this scenario highlights why our enduring product strategy and development recommendation is to follow approaches that avoid custom code as much as possible).

We work hard to build technology that helps ensure you can get maximum work done today, while also engineering our products to ensure minimum possible challenges when it comes time to embrace and leverage what’s next. We believe our plans for 4.0 are right on track.

We’ll share more in-depth information about what’s coming with Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 3.0 (and much, much more) during our Geocortex User Conference in a couple weeks (May 18-19), so don’t forget to register!

Geocortex Essentials 4.5, Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 2.6 & Geocortex Mobile App Framework 2.0

March 30th, 2016 by Jason Kolt

Our latest Geocortex release includes a major upgrade to our mobile/offline offering and brings our HTML5 viewer to almost complete parity (and beyond!) with Silverlight.

Geocortex release_March 2016

 

 

 

 

 

 

Latitude Geographics has released Geocortex Essentials 4.5, alongside Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 2.6 and Geocortex Mobile App Framework 2.0.

Packed with dozens of new features, Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 2.6 can now directly replace almost all remaining Silverlight viewers in the world. With only a small handful of niche features remaining to achieve complete parity with Geocortex Viewer for Silverlight (plus all new HTML5 capabilities that go far beyond), our next release will officially make Silverlight a relic of the past. You can save and share projects, upload data files to maps, and take advantage of comprehensive coordinate tools. We’ve also added print previews, the ability to configure the splash screen logo, and a right-click context menu that includes important information alongside a configurable list of menu options.

We also have big news regarding our iOS, Windows, and Android versions of Geocortex Mobile App Framework 2.0, which offers an improved, synchronized offline experience. It leverages Esri’s geodatabase replica format to enable full-text searching and spatial intersection of offline features stored on a device. We’ve introduced offline maps for defining, downloading and syncing offline maps, and streamlined basemap management lets you dynamically generate basemaps within an area of interest. These are big additions to our steadily evolving framework, and are the direct result of requests from our customers who find themselves increasingly needing to do their work offline.

Geocortex Mobile App Framework uses Esri’s Runtime SDK Standard Edition licensing, which is available via a standard ArcGIS identity. The ArcGIS Runtime SDK standard license can be acquired by purchasing license packs from Esri, or by ensuring that users sign-in to Geocortex Mobile App Framework-based apps using an ArcGIS identity belonging to ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS.

Customers using an existing version of Geocortex Mobile App Framework (1.x) will need to ensure that their users sync their data with the geodatabase before they upgrade to 2.0 – upgrading will not preserve the data stored on the device. Also, if you are deploying GMAF for iOS within your organization, please remember that you need to acquire an Apple Enterprise Developer License. The license provides a safe and secure channel for distributing the application to your users. You will also need to work with Latitude Geographics to sign the application.

As always, there are also numerous minor features, various bug fixes and user experience enhancements included as part of this release. We recommend you consult the release notes for more detailed information.

Note: There is interdependence between Geocortex Essentials, Geocortex Mobile App Framework, and our HTML5 viewer; implementing some newly-introduced features will require the latest versions.

Current Geocortex customers: Installers, release notes and supporting documentation can be downloaded by licensees with an active maintenance agreement from the Geocortex Support Center. If your account is handled by an authorized Geocortex Reseller, please contact your local representative for access to installers and documentation.

Customers interested in learning more about some of the new features being introduced can watch a set of new feature videos that will be available for viewing in the coming weeks in the Geocortex Support Center.

Important Notice: Geocortex Viewer for Silverlight 2.5 & ArcGIS for Server 10.4

February 26th, 2016 by Jason Kolt

Esri recently released ArcGIS 10.4, which includes stability enhancements and improved functionality. While we are pleased to announce that the latest versions of Geocortex Essentials (4.4.3) and Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 (2.5.2) have been tested and are compatible with ArcGIS 10.4, we have recently discovered that there are issues with ArcGIS for Server 10.4 and Geocortex Viewer for Silverlight 2.5 compatibility.

It appears that the issue relates to an inability for Geocortex Viewer for Silverlight 2.5 customers to load dynamic map services when using ArcGIS for Server 10.4. We are working with Esri’s Silverlight team to determine a path to resolution. We have not yet tested previous versions of Geocortex Viewer for Silverlight, but are making a conservative assumption that the same issue persists across all versions.

At this time, we are recommending that customers with applications built using Geocortex Viewer for Silverlight refrain from upgrading to ArcGIS 10.4 until we have more information and are able to offer a solution.

Again, Geocortex Essentials and Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 are working as expected with Esri’s latest release. We will reach out to our customers again with more information as soon as it is available.

Latitude Geographics & Geocortex in 2015… and 2016 (Part 2)

February 5th, 2016 by Jason Kolt

Continuing from last week, here’s items 5 to 1 on our Top Ten list of the notable developments at Latitude Geographics in 2015 that will have a big influence on the work we all do with Geocortex in 2016:

5. Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA Compliance

In 2015 we raised the bar in web GIS by providing support for end-users with disabilities. Released in March, Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 2.4 introduced out-of-the-box compliance with World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) industry standard guidelines, including features that are – at minimum – Web Content Accessibility Guideline (WCAG) 2.0 AA compliant. We did unprecedented development in the industry, which included focus group testing (special thanks to our colleagues at York Region in Southern Ontario who led this!) to help serve as an industry leader in accessibility within web mapping applications and provide users of all abilities with the best possible user experiences.

In 2016 we will be sharing the stories of end-users who are making the most of Geocortex Viewer for HTML5, and will be urging our government customers, in particular, to make their public-facing maps more accessible to everyone in their communities. Even if it’s not yet legislated in your jurisdiction, take a look… it’s just the right thing to do.

4. Mobile Offline: Geocortex Mobile App Framework

Many organizations require end-users to work with maps on mobile devices, even when operating in an environment with limited to no Internet connectivity, and Collector for ArcGIS is an ideal solution for this scenario. In some cases, there is a need to deliver a customized mobile offline application; to serve this need, we offer Geocortex Mobile App Framework (GMAF), which is included as part of Geocortex Essentials and follows an HTML5-centric approach that can be deployed to – and make the most of – specific mobile device hardware.

In 2015 we simplified GMAF’s architecture to enable a streamlined user experience for downloading and saving viewers that need to work offline onto a device, and added an Android application that is functionally identical to our existing iOS and Windows apps. 2016 will continue to see us improve GMAF, with version 2.0 shipping alongside Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 2.6 and Geocortex Essentials 4.5 in the coming months.

3. Application Performance Monitoring: Geocortex Insight

In October 2015 we released Geocortex Insight, our latest-generation product that helps customers understand use patterns, quantify and report on their GIS infrastructure’s return-on-investment, and build better applications based on near-real time data analysis. It is the successor to Geocortex Optimizer, which we released eight years ago, and has been built from the ground up to reflect the modern ArcGIS platform era.

Geocortex Insight will be front and center for us in 2016. When it was launched last year, we spent the first few months working with our current Geocortex Optimizer customers to help them transition to the new product, and took the time to ask them questions and gather their feedback. We’re very happy with how Geocortex Insight is already helping customers get even clearer pictures of their GIS infrastructures, while continuing aggressive development. And judging by nearly 500 participants in our recent Introduction to Geocortex Insight webinar, there’s lots of interest in the benefits a technology like it provides!

2. Solutions for Public Safety: Geocortex Active Operating Picture

Geocortex Active Operating Picture (AOP) is a product built on the foundation of Geocortex Essentials that helps incident commanders respond to emergency situations with a reliable, direct link to the field. AOP’s design enables clear, multi-way communication with mobile accessibility, a common/clean map interface, and tools to plan routes, share information and manage conversations. It complements the suite of public safety solutions we have built with our customers over the years, and represents one of our first complete, industry-specific offerings.

AOP’s demonstration was a hit at the Esri User Conference in July 2015. We hosted a webinar a month later and started to have more conversations about how AOP could help our customers solve their business problems. What we quickly learned is that Geocortex Active Operating Picture has a broad applicability outside of single-event emergencies. We’re reorienting it from being an industry-specific offering in the sense that Geocortex Essentials and Geocortex Insight are “products”, given its much wider applicability.

2016 will continue this trend, and we can’t wait to see how AOP will evolve to help our customers protect people and property, and respond as quickly and efficiently as possible in emergency situations.

1. Esri’s Portal for ArcGIS/ArcGIS Online and Geocortex

Throughout 2015, our work to embrace Esri’s vision for the modern ArcGIS platform era continued. From core engineering to enable deep, long-term orientation around web maps, identities, portal-centric deployment and web GIS information models – to implementing these new patterns on projects with clients working to unify their web GIS – we are helping position them to take their spatial endeavors to new levels as the future continues to unfold.

This work continues in earnest in 2016, and we’re excited about what’s coming from Esri this year; it’s an exciting time to be in this field!

Latitude Geographics & Geocortex in 2015… and 2016 (Part 1)

January 29th, 2016 by Jason Kolt

On January 15th we held our Annual Kick-Off – a conference-style event at our headquarters in Victoria – where each team at Latitude Geographics shared their strategies for the year ahead and we set our 2016 plans into motion.

Of course, we let ourselves have a little bit of fun after the event as well.

As we looked back on 2015, we realized just how big a year it was. We welcomed 26 new Latituders to the company (which led us to take over an additional floor in our head office’s building), established new programs to share our technology with educational and non-profit organizations, built targeted, industry-specific solutions, launched more features and capabilities in our core product than ever before (we also added a new product while we were at it!), and made some important new partnerships.

Here’s a Top 10 list, in hotly contested order, of the notable developments at Latitude Geographics in 2015 that will have a big influence on the work we all do with Geocortex in 2016. (Well, this post actually contains the first five entries in our list… we will post the second part next week.)

10. Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 and Feature Parity (+)

When Google definitively deprecated support for Silverlight in their Chrome web browser in September 2015 faster than anyone expected, we were closing in on our goal of feature parity with previous-generation technology. A huge number of client migrations took place in 2015, and aggressive development of Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 features was our #1 focus over the year.

2015 saw two massive releases of our HTML5 viewer (2.4 and 2.5), with 40+ new capabilities and enhancements, including (for example): visualization options for point features including heatmaps and clustering, out-of-the-box buffering support, accessibility enhancements for end-users with disabilities, using geolocation/GPS to create features, the addition of a fully pre-configured toolbar with context-sensitive tools and stateful toggle buttons, drill-down map tips for all devices, and a brand new UX for handheld devices.

In the coming weeks, we will ship Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 2.6, which includes an improved “save/open project” feature, and brings us to primary feature parity with our Silverlight viewer. Some features are no longer required, while others are niche and flowed into the product as a result of specific professional services work.  Many features have been enhanced and enriched for next generation, and there are a bunch of completely new features for customers to get acquainted with.

9. Geocortex Support Center Upgrade

We launched a completely overhauled and modernized the Geocortex Support Center in September 2015. New features include improved search capabilities, the ability to post ideas (including up/down-voting), and the ability to submit and monitor support cases more easily. Customers can also contribute to the community and find information related to specific products, which have their own forum, knowledge base, code gallery, video, and product download sections.

8. Geocortex Decision Support via a Houston Advanced Research Center Collaboration

The Environmentally Friendly Drilling Systems (EFD) Program, managed by Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC), focuses on providing unbiased science and developing solutions to address issues associated with oil and gas development. HARC, the University of Arkansas, and Latitude Geographics collaborated on a multi-year project, which completed in November 2015, to help create software for accessible geodesign related to well pad placement.

Our work with HARC resulted in the development of Geocortex Decision Support, which is centered on a collaborative, familiar interface that allows project team members to interact with GIS data without needing to be GIS experts. Users can share maps with other users in the organization, provide input on siting decisions via comments, and view/respond to tasks assigned by others.

While the impetus for this project was to help the energy sector make environmentally-conscious decisions, it is clear the foundation of Geocortex Decision Support can help any industry that has a need for project teams to collaborate with spatial data. Some exciting customer conversations have already begun.

7. Geocortex for Educational Use & Geocortex for Non-Profit Organizations

Esri provides amazing, no-cost access to ArcGIS technology for use by K-12 institutions, and low-cost access for post-secondary educational use. Inspired by this, we rolled out a complementary program in 2015 to help remove barriers to access for educators and students who’d benefit from integrating Geocortex technology into their curriculum and research.

At the same time we launched the Geocortex for Educational Use Program, we also created the Geocortex Non-Profit Organization Program. We believe deeply in the importance of organizations that strive for positive social and environmental change; there are many organizations in the non-profit/charity sector that have talented people and great mandates, but as registered non-profit organizations, have limited funds with which to procure software like ours. Our hope is that this program will make it easier for them to do their valuable work.

You can inquire about the Geocortex for Educational Use Program or Geocortex Non-Profit Organization Program by emailing us at education@latitudegeo.com and nonprofit@latitudegeo.com respectively.

6. Schneider Partnership & ArcFM Web

In July, we jointly announced our partnership with Schneider Electric at their user group meeting in San Diego, with news that our Geocortex Essentials software would soon be integrated into Schneider Electric’s ArcFM™ solution. This partnership allows utilities to develop useful, targeted applications to quickly empower field workers, streamline business processes, manage assets and analyze data.

Officially released in November, ArcFM Web extends the capabilities of Schneider Electric’s GIS solutions using core Geocortex technology.

Schneider’s ArcFM solution has long been the industry standard for utilities that are looking to leverage the benefits of GIS solutions. Now, with a little support from Geocortex Viewer for HTML5, ArcFM Web provides customer access across devices. This is a new partnership that we expect will blossom in 2016.

Stay tuned for the second half of this list, which we will post next week!

Geocortex Insight has launched… and this is what we’ve learned so far.

December 17th, 2015 by Jason Kolt

In October we officially launched Geocortex Insight, our newest product that helps customers understand use patterns, quantify and report on their GIS infrastructure’s return-on-investment, and build better applications based on near-real time data analysis. It is the successor to Geocortex Optimizer, which we released eight years ago, and has been built from the ground up to reflect the modern ArcGIS platform era.

Geocortex Insight is a new, version 1.0 product, so we’ve been monitoring it extra closely as we manage its phased roll-out to customers. We started with a small beta (test) group before its release, and then focused on deploying it to Geocortex Optimizer customers since the official launch. At this stage in the product’s development, installation and configuration support is required from our team (we will be adding self-configuration capabilities to the next version of Geocortex Insight); this means we’ve had the opportunity to work closely with our customers to fully understand what is required to get them up and running, and have been able to hear from them – directly – about the value they’re finding with the product.

Here are the top six themes we’ve encountered during our initial installations – and have heard from Geocortex Insight customers – so far:

  1. Maximizing the ROI of applications, services, and infrastructure is critical. Ensuring the return on investment (ROI) of a GIS infrastructure and applications by knowing how much they are being used helps with future planning. Customers are using Geocortex Insight to show how many people are using the map services or features they’ve created; it also shows the demands on servers, including CPU and memory, to know if the infrastructure is being used to its potential.
  2. Focusing optimization efforts gives the greatest impact. Enabling users to perform their business tasks at peak performance (by identifying weak areas that can be optimized) makes for a better overall experience. Customers are identifying errors that reoccur from a particular resource, and know which map services are the slowest – and/or put the most demands on their resources – and are focusing their optimization efforts accordingly.
  3. Troubleshooting problems as quickly as possible prevents headaches. Being alerted to issues immediately means they can be resolved quickly. Customers are reviewing reports to see the inter-relationship of a variety of data to understand what the roots of problems are. If they receive a slow response time alert, they are discovering through Geocortex Insight reports whether it was due to a server nearing capacity, a spike in users using a new map service, or an issue with the configuration of a new application.
  4. Planning for the future is easier when following demand trends. Geocortex Insight visually expresses demand changes over time, and customers are taking advantage of this to know when to add new resources.
  5. Understanding users’ behaviors helps build better applications. Knowing what types of browsers are displaying applications (and how frequently they are being used), how many users are new versus returning, and what services are being used are helping guide our customers’ efforts to align with their users’ behaviors.
  6. Monitoring what is important needs to be easy. Most of our customers tell us how busy they are, so keeping track of key metrics by creating their own custom Geocortex Insight dashboards – and easily seeing the data that is important to them in one place – is definitely something we are hearing about often.

We are excited to bring Geocortex Insight to a broader audience in 2016. You can register for a webinar — Introducing Geocortex Insight — which we will be hosting on January 26. If you’d like to see the product in action and learn more, we invite you to attend (and recommend you bring a system administrator/IT colleague with you who is directly involved with monitoring your organization’s infrastructure).

You can learn more about Geocortex Insight by visiting the product’s site, or by contacting your Account Manager/authorized Geocortex reseller as applicable.

The New Geocortex Support Center is Now Live!

September 22nd, 2015 by Jason Kolt

We’re excited to share that the Geocortex Support Center has been upgraded! This is a project that we have been working on for many months, now, and is the direct result of all the helpful feedback that our customers have shared with us. Some of the new features and benefits include:

  • Enhanced search capabilities to help customers find exactly what they’re looking for;
  • Content that is organized by Geocortex products;
  • A dedicated space to share ideas for product enhancements;
  • Up- and down-voting posts in the community forums; and
  • The ability to submit and monitor support cases more easily.

We’ve also created a customized profile page for customers to see all of their activity in one place, and they can even share their public-facing Geocortex sites with the rest of the community to show off some of the innovative work they’re doing with our technology.

The Geocortex Support Center is available to all licensees and can be accessed here.

Geocortex Essentials 4.4, Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 2.5 & Geocortex Mobile App Framework 1.3

September 8th, 2015 by Jason Kolt

Latest Geocortex release includes visualization enhancements, improved security support, and a simplified architecture for offline scenarios

Latitude Geographics has released Geocortex Essentials 4.4, alongside Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 2.5 and Geocortex Mobile App Framework 1.3.

While we’ve made some major upgrades to Geocortex Essentials (improved performance, load balance stability, and configuration for dynamic workflow forms and basemap groups), many of the exciting features in this release can be found in Geocortex Viewer for HTML5.

We’ve added over 20 significant new capabilities (and many more enhancements to pre-existing features) to Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 2.5, with a focus on improving user experiences across devices and in any environment. End-users can now select identifiable layers, visualization of point-based features can be expressed as heatmaps or grouped with interactive clustering, and we have made available a fully pre-configured toolbar with context-sensitive tools and stateful toggle buttons. We’ve also built upon our commitment to making web maps accessible to persons with disabilities by adding indications to screen readers when views show and hide in the interface.

Geocortex Mobile App Framework 1.3 contains further improvements to its iOS, Windows and Android versions. It has a new, simplified architecture that introduces Viewer Packages for downloading all resources required to run a viewer offline and eliminates the application cache. It’s important to note that Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 2.5 is required to properly run this version of Geocortex Mobile App Framework.

As always, there are also numerous minor features, various bug fixes and user experience enhancements included as part of this release. We recommend you consult the release notes for more detailed information.

Note: There is interdependence between Geocortex Essentials and our HTML5 viewer; implementing some newly-introduced features will require the latest version of Geocortex Essentials.

Current Geocortex customers: Installers, release notes and supporting documentation can be downloaded by licensees with an active maintenance agreement from the Geocortex Support Center. If your account is handled by an authorized Geocortex Reseller, please contact your local representative for access to installers and documentation.

Customers interested in learning more about some of the new features being introduced can watch a set of new feature videos that are available for viewing in the Geocortex Support Center.
