Transform how you design, develop and maintain ArcGIS web mapping applications
Take advantage of our unrivalled stable of off-the-shelf capabilities and viewer options, intelligent platform engineering that offers the ability to customize without compromising the future, and an amazing flow of great new additions thanks to our sustainable research & development program.
Geocortex Essentials is an unrivalled way to enable your investment in ArcGIS Server and ArcGIS Online web mapping technology, but let's talk dollars. After all, Geocortex Essentials is a licensed software product. We're convinced that our approach represents the least expensive way to meet the requirements of the typical ongoing web mapping initiative. And we're confident you'll be convinced of this too (we can back up our claim).
The economics of all this is made possible by a proven, product-centric business model that amortizes the cost of addressing common requirements across hundreds of organizations. With Geocortex Essentials you leverage a massive body of work for pennies on the dollar, all created by our experienced team of professional web mapping product developers. Year after year.
Off-the-shelf, pre-built GIS
With Geocortex Essentials, you gain a significant head-start by taking advantage of pre-built functionality that almost every organization can use. A paper napkin no longer needs to be the starting point to launch your next great GIS project.
Software that is flexible enough to meet a variety of needs means that both GIS administrators and developers must have the inner workings of applications accessible to them. Geocortex Essentials elegantly accommodates this through an integrated framework of components. A hodge-podge of tools and utilities that don't cohesively work together is a step backwards.

Don't code, configure. We recognize every organization is different. We provide the ability for GIS administrators to configure much of Geocortex to your specific needs without having to rely on precious program resources. Our visual administration tools provide flexibility through a wide array of options.
Powerful SDK — If and when you need it
In some situations, there are specific aspects of your application that you may want to tailor that go beyond the scope of our configuration tools. You can extend Geocortex further by using our comprehensive client-side object model and development framework, command and event registration capabilities, and server-side REST API. Programmers are significantly more productive by taking advantage of the Geocortex SDK.
Certified for Microsoft Windows
Server 2008 R2
Geocortex Essentials has earned Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 certification. This demonstrates that the application has met Microsoft's highest standards for stability, security, reliability, availability, Windows fundamentals, and platform compatibility. In addition, through this certification, the Hyper-V designation demonstrates that Geocortex has passed Microsoft's mission-critical standards for a virtualized environment.
Geocortex Essentials also supports Microsoft Windows Server 2012, but as yet, has not been certified.
Spatial Application Infrastructure (SAI)
Geocortex Essentials is architected to offer organizations maximum flexibility by enabling the implementation of a spatial application infrastructure for web-GIS and mapping. SAI provides organizations with the ability to speed up development and reduces costs while increasing GIS/IT efficacy. As technology evolves, SAI also helps future-proof applications, protecting these valuable investments from technological redundancy. Purposeful applications, a more innovative and more efficient approach to the implementation of web-GIS, are also made possible through SAI adoption.
