Geocortex Go UI

The descriptions and screen shots of the Geocortex Go UI that you see in this document are not likely to be the same as the one you are using. However, it is likely that some or all of the UI components will be present in your application.

Typical Geocortex Go UI

Taskbar - A list of icons that you click to open a panel containing tools that perform certain tasks, for example, turn layers on or off, or download and activate Map Areas.

Panel - The panel that opens when you click an item on the taskbar. Each panel contains configuration options to accomplish a task. For example, the Layers panel makes it possible to quickly show or hide a layer on the map. When you click the other task icons in the taskbar, other panels containing different tools slide out. Typically, there are panels for the I Want To menu, Feature search, Layers and Map Areas but there may be others.

I Want To Menu - A list of actions that are frequently used. When you click this button, a configuration panel opens that lists frequent actions like changing to the default map view, or refreshing the app.

Map - The map that this app uses. You can drag the map around, zoom in and out, or rotate the map using hand gestures.

Geolocation Accuracy - The accuracy of the geolocation feature on this map. 30m indicates that the location shown on the map is accurate to within 30 meters, which means that your device could be anywhere within the thin blue circle that pulses around the blue dot.

Geolocate Icon - Shows the location of the current user's device as a blue dot on the map if that device is within the visible area of the map.

Location Services for the device must be turned on for geolocation to work.

To activate geolocation and center the map on the blue dot of the user, click the geolocate icon .

When the map is centered, the geolocate icon changes to show a blue dot at the center .

If the user's device cannot be found, the geolocate icon is gray and crossed out .
