Geocortex Essentials Viewers
Geocortex Essentials provides the flexibility to deploy viewer technologies suited to support rich desktop and lightweight mobile applications. The Geocortex Viewer for Silverlight and the Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 are fully integrated with other components of the Geocortex framework, including our GUI-based management tools to make configuration, customization and upgrades easier. The out-of-the-box capabilities provided by these viewers routinely save organizations significant amounts of time, effort and money.
Often, little or no programming is required. Use visual administration tools to configure a variety of elements within the viewer that include map services, security, non-spatial data sources, reporting, printing, layer list, workflows, tools, the look and feel of the application, and more.
If you are a programmer, you can go beyond basic configuration and get under the hood to provide extensive custom modifications. Enhance the viewers by adding your own tools to the toolbar, and create new widgets or add third-party widgets. Leveraging the developer SDKs of each viewer enables you to extend or change the out-of-the-box viewers in virtually any way or integrate with third-party systems.
Reporting & Printing
Template-based printing allows you to run high-resolution, large format (plotter size) print jobs. Custom built templates created using our WYSIWYG report designer can include a main map, legend, overview map, north arrow, corporate logos or images, titles, copyright messages, mark-up and graphics, scale and projection information. You can run reports for single or multiple features and export the results to a PDF or CSV file.
Geocortex essentials provides numerous must have features including various measurement tools, dynamic map tips, feature hyperlinks and more.
The Layer List provides layer organization and collapsible categorization. You can also control map service transparency, layer visibility control, view a dynamic legend (reflects currently visible layers), and filter/find layers with text input. Having such a wide range of controls will enable you to have greater control over your layers, and in turn, over what data that is accessible to you.
Bi-directional integration allows you to launch from other applications or have other applications launch a viewer. The URL Integration feature supports a variety of options, such as; zoom to a specific extent, or zooms to and highlight a particular feature. Common types of applications which are integrated include document management, permitting, assessment, and other non-spatial business applications.
