I’ve seen the Future and it’s my Browser: GIS Development in the Mobile Era

April 02, 2012 -- From desktop, to tablets, to mobile devices, HTML is no longer just the language of websites, it is rapidly taking over as the premier way that software is built.  Couple the rise of HTML 5 with the native application market for an increasing number of handheld “post PC era” devices and it becomes clear that the ability to deliver content and application functionality to multiple device form factors will be a technology discriminator for organizations moving forward for the foreseeable future.  The GIS/mapping industry is not immune from these larger industry trends and responsive web design will play a critical role in the future of geospatial applications.  Dave Bouwman and Brian Noyle will discuss trends in web and mobile development with a focus on how the GIS community can leverage these technologies in the delivery of maps and “geo” functionality to a wide audience.  The contrasts between Plugin based solutions, native applications , and HTML5 will play a prominent role in this webinar with discussion on judging fitness for use of each approach.  Development and implementation emphasis will focus on the new features provided by HTML 5.  Semantic markup, javascript-based mapping frameworks, CSS 3, and browser extensions such as geolocation will be discussed.  The webinar will include many examples of mapping systems developed by Mr. Bouwman, Mr. Noyle, and the team at DTSAgile.

Dave Bouwman: 

Dave has been designing and developing GIS software for the last 12 years with projects ranging from small web-sites to state wide enterprise forest managment systems. Over the last few years he has been leading a team of developers in the pursuit of great software built in a sane manner. The combination of an Agile process with pragmatic development practices taken from exterme programing has led us to a highly optimized methodology of creating solid software that we are proud to put our names on.  When Dave is not attached to a computer, he is often found mountain biking on the trails around Fort Collins. 

Brian Noyle: 

Originally trained as a global change biologist and tundra botanist, Brian has nearly 10 years experience as GIS software developer and architect. His professional and technical interests are primarily focused on moving clients toward more standard architecture and development practices and patterns to facilitate a closer integration of GIS with the standard IT enterprise. Brian has extensive experience in full software lifecycle management with a focus on delivering through agile project management methods. When he's not in the office, Brian can be found on his mountain bike, picking a bluegrass lick on the guitar, or standing in a river waving a stick.
