  1. Is Mobile the Future of GIS? Matt Sheehan WebMapSolutions

  2. About Matt Sheehan • Principal & developer WebMapSolutions • Company formed in 2006 • Location focused Web and Mobile Application Developers

  3. Agenda Background - Internet to Web 2.0 to mobile - Geospatial history Mobile - Mobile Demystified - Geo-Mobile applications

  4. Background

  5. History - Internet to Web 2.0 to Mobile • Lynx, Mosaic & HTML • Javascript • 2004 Web 2.0 “Web as Platform” • Flash (2004) • AJAX (2005) • Flex (2006) and Silverlight (2008) • Mobile Flex, HTML5, Objective-C, Java

  6. GeoSpatial History • 1960-75 - Harvard Laboratory For Computer Graphics And Spatial Analysis • 1969 - Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) - built on Harvard Graphics developments • 1970 - Intergraph Corporation – IBM spin off • 1996 – MapQuestlaunched • 1997 – ESRI launch MapObjects IMS • 2000 – ESRI launch ArcIMS • 2000 – 2006 MapServer and GeoServer are released • 2002 – ESRI launch ArcIMS • 2005 – Google maps is released • 2005 – OpenStreetMap founded • 2007 – Yahoo, Microsoft offer mapping sites and API’s • 2008 - First GPS enabled smart phone • 2012 – Mobile Maps, GIS & LBS

  7. Mobile

  8. Mobile Demystified • Mobile is confusing! - Hardware - Smartphones & Tablets - Platforms – iOS, Android, Windows .. - Software – Web v native v hybrid - Languages – Mobile Flex, HTML 5, Objective-C, Java …

  9. Hardware • Smartphones - Screen size 2.1 – 4” - Good for routing, check-in apps etc • Tablets – Screen size 7” – 10.1” - Offers the possibility of richer more complex apps

  10. Mobile Apps • Web - Javascript/HTML 5 = most mobile browsers - Flash, Flex & Silverlight– not Apple iOS • Native – Installed apps eg. Objective-C (iOS) advantages – performance? disadvantage – built for one platform • Hybrid - Installed apps eg. Adobe Mobile Flex advantages – runs on most platforms disadvantage – performance?

  11. Applications of Mobile Technology

  12. Location Focused API’s • Maps and more Google, MapQuest • GIS – ESRI • Other location service – Foursquare, Facebook, GeoLoqi - GeoMarketing, GeoFencing, GeoSocial

  13. Available Mobile GIS Apps • ESRI – Free app iOS & Android. ArcGIS.com • ESRI – ArcGIS Online templates • WebMapSolutions – GeoMobile for ArcGIS Free app iOS, Android, Blackberry

  14. Sharing your GIS Data • ArcGIS Server – dynamic, tiled, feature lyrs • ArcGIS Online – web maps • Shapefiles • Other – GeoServer, Mapserver

  15. Mobile GeoSpatial Applications Visualization • View your data as layers over basemaps – fields, soil type etc • Both static and dynamic data

  16. Mobile GeoSpatial Applications Management and Coordination • Tracking and coordinating field workers • Live data updates from the field

  17. Mobile GeoSpatial Applications Query & Search • View feature attributes. Query for features with specific attributes

  18. Mobile GeoSpatial Applications Tools • Geospatial tools for specific work flows – buffering, measure, routing

  19. Mobile GeoSpatial Applications Data Collection • The end of pen and paper • Adding & updating features – field fertilization

  20. Mobile GeoSpatial Applications Updates, Editing, Annotation • Feature and Attribute Editing. • Updates done in the field sent to central server

  21. Mobile GeoSpatial Applications Online/Offline • No Wi-Fi …. no problem! • Caching data on the mobile device

  22. Is Mobile the Future of GIS? • Mobile = Opportunity • Context • New users • New tools • New markets

  23. Questions • Should we re-label ourselves - location based solution providers? • Is this the end for Trimble? • Will be start also looking to Google etc for (GIS) solutions?
