Geocortex Essentials 3.14

Key additions:

  • Printing with graticules
  • Ability to configure the default visibility of layer labels
  • A new generic utility REST endpoint for extracting FeatureSet geometries to Shapefile (Used by Extract Markup to Shapefile functionality in Geocortex Viewer for Silverlight 1.9)
  • Support for ArcGIS Server 10.1 Cached Image Services
  • An updated language tool to help support translation of both Geocortex Essentials Manager and the Geocortex Viewer for Silverlight
  • Performance improvements; and
  • New and updated Geocortex Workflow activities, including the ability to set the default value(s) of ComboBox and ListBox form items with runtime modifications

Geocortex Viewer for Silverlight 1.9

Key additions:

  • A “Home” panel feature, provided primarily at viewer start-up to focus users’ attention on key information and application capabilities; these can be created and customized using basic HTML markup
  • Toggle visibility of layer labels from the layer list
  • Scale-dependent base maps. When a user zooms within set scale ranges, the base map service becomes visible; when the user zooms out of scale range, the base map becomes invisible

  • Users can change the geographic coordinate system associated with their on-screen mouse coordinates

Both releases also include various bug fixes and user experience enhancements. Please consult the release notes for more detailed information.
