Getting Started with Geocortex Essentials - Geocortex Training

Introduction to Geocortex Mobile

Overview

In this course you will learn how to build Geocortex Mobile apps that support efficient and effective management of field data. You will build a GXM app using out of the box features and task-specific workflows, refining the app to support field data collection. You will learn to create a custom mobile layout and apply your skills to building your own layout. Then you will learn to configure and use sideloaded basemaps. Finally, you will learn how to deploy GXM apps and create a platform-specific app using a purpose-built self-signed security certificate.
