Fremtiden er mobil ...
The future is mobile ...
If you attended the Developer Summit this year, you would have caught a glimpse at what is coming in the ArcGIS 9.4 release for ArcGIS Mobile. It is a pretty exciting release for the development team. If you did not get a chance to attend, you can view the plenary presentation on the web site - http://www.esri.com/events/devsummit/. Click on "Server and Mobile 9.4" to watch the mobile highlights.
The 9.4 release is centered around the following key themes:
- Extending the reach of our application platform support by including a new Tablet application that has all of the capabilities of the Windows Mobile application but targets touch screen windows devices.
- Opening our field applications as a framework for developers to extend. Our goal is to lower the bar for developers that need to build highly focused mobile applications by allowing them to extend our new Tablet application and our existing Windows Mobile application with custom extensions, tasks, and data.
- Improved usability of the Windows Mobile application. We have enhanced the Windows Mobile application so that it is more effective for touch or stylus use, added new GPS data collection functionality, improved editing workflows, support for direct picture capture, enhanced base map support including online map services, and much more.
- Simplifying the management of field projects by introducing a new Mobile Project Center application that field supervisors can use to create mobile projects and deploy them to field devices.
- Key enhancements to the Mobile SDK with exciting new capabilities for data management, consumption of online services, support for .NET 3.5, WPF, and much more.
- Simplified setup and deployment of ArcGIS Mobile technology by including all mobile client capabilities into a separate setup from the Server .NET setup.
- Plenary Slide for ArcGIS Mobile used at Developer Summit
In a future blog article we will spend more time talking about what is coming in 9.4.
