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.
