MobileDataforce® Inc. (http://www.mobiledataforce.com), a leading provider of customized mobile software applications and Rapid Application Development Solutions for Mobile Environments (RADS-ME)™, and DeLorme, a leading provider of mapping products and technical solutions for the consumer and professional markets are pleased to announce the integration of the PointSync mobile application development kit and XMap that together provide a full featured GIS mapping and field service development environment.
“The integration with XMap makes it easy to add a graphical GIS interface to existing or new PointSync applications. The combined solution enables our field services customers to visually see on maps the location and status of service orders, jobsites, assets and virtually any other point of interest,” said Dave Wasden, VP of Product Management of MobileDataforce. “Work crew locations, job status, vehicle tracking all can be viewed graphically on maps. In addition, moving between the XMap interface and the PointSync application is now seamless and acts as a single mobile application.”
DeLorme's highly acclaimed XMap/GIS platform offers a full set of spatial tools including access to existing GIS data, import and export of ESRI Shapefiles, data creating and editing tools, and Web publishing of GIS data.
PointSync suite is an enterprise-grade software system for rapid deployment of database centric mobility applications on handheld computers. MobileDataforce PointSync provides customers and integrators the capability and software platform to rapidly develop and deploy mobility projects of all kinds.
“Users can load their day’s job locations in XMap, click on the visual location flags, and see the relevant work order for that site in MobileDataforce’s PointSync” said Keith Gray, GIS Specialist for DeLorme. “As the user updates jobs in PointSync, the location flags are changed to give a quick visual indicator of progress. The ability to easily integrate XMap and PointSync provides a very powerful development tool for creating mobile applications with GIS capabilities.”
