GXM is a framework for configuring and building mobile offline-capable custom apps on Esri's platform. GXM is part of the Geocortex Essentials 5-series suite of products.
You can use the GXM framework to build mobile, offline-capable apps that can run on Android, iOS, or Windows platforms. GXM apps make it possible to pan and zoom the map, search for features, review attributes, add and edit features, add attachments, and track your movements in real time. Integration with Geocortex Workflow ensures that you can build apps for many business processes. GXM apps can be used in the field to collect data, including photos and documents that can be attached to the map, perform inspections, or add and edit ArcGIS features.
To access Mobile Designer, you can:
Use the SaaS Mobile Designer (https://apps.geocortex.com/mobileviewer/designer/): Create apps that you can deploy as branded, custom apps or by using Geocortex Go. Your data is stored and accessed using ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS.
Use the on-premises installer (https://communities.geocortex.com/s/downloads) to install Mobile Designer on Windows Server 2019: Create fully functional apps that you can deploy either as custom apps, or by using Geocortex Go.
Your data is stored and accessed using ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS
The Android, iOS or Windows version of Geocortex Go can be downloaded from their app stores and installed on those devices.
There are four key components to the Geocortex Mobile framework:
Geocortex Workflow Designer: Workflowis an optional component that is included with all Geocortex Mobile licenses. Workflow allows you to extend the capabilities of GXM Apps.
The starting point for every GXM app is a link to an Esri web map. To this map, using Mobile Designer, you can add custom elements that may include workflows, branding colors and other components to create a custom mobile app that can be deployed to support mobile data collection in the field with or without an Internet connection.
