If you’ve taken a moment to make some observations in any public space recently, you’ve no doubt seen that the majority of people are, if not staring at it, at least very in tune with whatever is happening on their mobile devices. This constant connectivity is now central to both our workplaces and the way we interact with customers. No matter what industry you’re in, mobile app design is a must, allowing you to reach more people anytime and anywhere. Whether it’s a mobile app design for your website or a universal application that allows data sharing across platforms and geographic regions, there’s no way to avoid taking this step to stay relevant in your industry.

SSL and ArcGIS Server - Time For HTTPS is Now

Posted by Jason Harris on May 5, 2016 10:53:50 AM

We all knew it was coming and now it's here.  The #1 desktop browser, Google Chrome has recently updated several of their API's that affect us GIS developers - most notably for us, GeoLocation.  The short take away here is, in order to take advantage of in-browser geolocation (you know, that home/crosshairs button), you need to use HTTPS when serving your webs and map services.  Adding SSL to your ArcGIS Server site is pretty straightforward as is adding SSL to the webserver of your choice.  The bigger issue (pain) is going through all your code and making sure that everything is being served via HTTPS.  You know, all the javascript libraries, google apis, jquery, etc - they all need to be called via HTTPS or you'll get a 'Mixed Content' error that will block regular HTTP calls.

Visual representations have been central to humanity’s understanding and experience of life as far back as we know. The impact of technology on the much beloved human practice of capturing memories and documenting moments has been monumental. Beyond Instagram, smartphone cameras, and the like, satellite images allow scientists to assess the health of the planet, and even track the effects of climate change, globalization, and urbanization, including the rise in sea level globally.

Client Spotlight - Town of Summerville, SC

Posted by Emma Paz on Jun 2, 2015 12:03:50 PM

We’d like to dedicate this month’s spotlight to our most local client, the Town of Summerville, South Carolina. Aside from being closest to us in proximity, the real news stems from the Town being hard at work to provide their citizens with the best GIS data possible. This effort has been two-fold: streamlining their data and upgrading to mobile GOMaps 4.0.
