FieldCenter for Mobile Mapping

FieldCenter provides map-driven spatial data capture as part of the mobile business workflow in forms applications such as surveys, audit sheets, asset management, and inspection forms. This can facilitate the collection of meaningful spatial data correlated to other business intelligence data being collected, such as digital photos and video.

Following Cortex’s philosophy of simplicity, the intuitive mapping component can be easily added to mobile forms without programming. GIS information is delivered in an easy to use format with intuitive menus and simple map displays, so mobile workers only require minimal training to view and markup maps and upload the collected data back to the FieldCenter server.

Any enterprise with a mobile workforce that needs to view, add and update spatial data can use FieldCenter's GIS capabilities. It is particularly suited to industries such as government, transport, utilities, emergency services, military, and environmental.
