Intergraph Mobile MapWorks launches
September 23rd, 2013 by Susan Smith
Recalling Intergraph’s long history in hardware, servers and desktop software solutions, this iOS and Android based app may seem like a departure for the company, although it is very much a sign of the times. Intergraph has launched Intergraph Mobile MapWorks, an iOS and Android tablet-based app for viewing, editing and updating field asset information in real-time. It can be downloaded from Apple’s iTunes and the Google Play app stores. Field asset information can be accessed easily through mobile apps like this one, with very intuitive interfaces. Local government professionals use tablets as a matter of course in their field work, and find this type of application to be a perfect fit.
Intergraph Mobile MapWorks uses OGC-standard web services and is compatible with all GIS platforms on the market. It is not necessary for users to do any data conversion or synchronization to use this app. This open architecture also allows field updates to become instantly available to any GIS platforms, on the desktop, web, or mobile devices. Intergraph Mobile MapWorks can also be customized for local governments, utilities and public works organizations, and can adapt to be used for the asset management needs of defense and intelligence agencies.
The launch of Mobile MapWorks supports Intergraph’s efforts to bring mobile solutions to the marketplace that function as an extension of the overall enterprise with the ability to access geospatial data and asset and incident information in the field for real-time reviewing and updating. Other mobile offerings from Intergraph include Intergraph Mobile Responder and Intergraph Mobile Alert, meeting specific industry needs for public safety, government, and infrastructure organizations.
“With data existing on both mobile devices and the enterprise, there is an inherent need for updating the data in real-time for enhanced reporting and accuracy when managing and monitoring assets in the field,” added Stojic.
