Geocortex adds support for Arcade scripting and ArcGIS Online smart mapping

VICTORIA, CANADA – Latitude Geographics (a VertiGIS company) recently released the 4.12 version of their flagship product, Geocortex Essentials, with the vision of making it even easier for the developers of mapping applications to take advantage of Esri’s ArcGIS® technology.

Improved integration with ArcGIS® Online web map outputting

Using Esri’s smart mapping functionality, GIS departments around the world are creating eye-catching, informative maps in ArcGIS Online. Smart mapping allows analysts to visualize and review their data in unique ways to discover trends and solve complex problems. By styling data and displaying it in a thematic map, hidden meaning can be found. For example, a map can now be created that uses clustering, opacity, and varying color schemes to display:

 

a) The most prevalent level of education in a county by neighborhood;

b) The incidence of that level of education in that neighborhood; and

c) The variance from that mean level of education in that neighborhood.

 

Web maps outputted from ArcGIS Online can now be imported into Geocortex Viewer for HTML5 (GVH) exactly as they are, meaning that all smart mapping symbology, legends, and other information will be preserved and appear in GVH in the same format.

 

Support for ArcGIS® Arcade scripting engine

The Arcade expression language adds powerful scripting capabilities to the ArcGIS platform. By writing simple scripts, users can manipulate their map data on the fly in several ways. For example, a user could use an Arcade script to set up an identify parcel operation that also returns a summary of both the population density and communications infrastructure in the area, along with any other variables of interest they wish to include. The portability of these scripts allows them to now be used within Geocortex applications.

 

“The new functionality added in this release provides even stronger support for developers using the ArcGIS platform, particularly those familiar with creating smart maps in ArcGIS Online,” said Drew Millen, Chief Technology Officer for Geocortex. “It’s now easier than ever to build a mapping application that pulls data from various sources and uses it creatively to improve decision making.”
