Geocortex Go User Interface

The descriptions and screen shots of the Geocortex Go UI that you see in this document are unlikely to be the same as the one you are using, however, some or all of the UI components are likely to be present in your application.

Typical GXM App 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. Buttons on the taskbar are for feature search, layers, map areas and to add features but your app may have others if they have been configured.

Panels - Panels open when you click a button on the taskbar, when you click the I Want To menu, when you click a feature, or when you interact with a search result, a related record or an attachment. The screen shot above shows the Layers panel. Panels contain information as well as tools that you can use to accomplish a task. For example, the Layers panel makes it possible to quickly show or hide layers on the map.

I Want To Menu - A list of actions that are used often. When you click this button, a panel opens that lists actions like Return to the Default Map View or Refresh the App.

Map - The map that this application uses. You can drag the map around (pan), zoom in and out, and rotate the map.

Geolocation Accuracy - The accuracy of your device's location on this map.

Geolocate Icon - Toggles between different localization modes to indicate various states.

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

To center the map on the device's location, click the geolocate icon .

When the device location is centered, the geolocate icon changes to show a blue dot at the center and pans to keep the device centered on the map.

If the device location is not available, the geolocate icon is gray and crossed out .
