The Premier development tool for creating customised mapping applications for the Pocket PC.
MapInfo® MapX® Mobile is a development tool for creating map-based applications for mobile workers. Applications that are built with MapInfo MapX Mobile leverage the Pocket PC Windows operating system, running on devices such as the Compaq® iPAQ and HP® Jornada. This specialised version of the popular MapInfo MapX Active X Control can be used to bring existing map-based applications on to mobile devices, or to create new applications.
Take Maps and Data into the Field
MapInfo MapX Mobile enables developers to create powerful, feature-rich applications for any mobile workforce. These include applications for service and repair representatives, sales professionals, field engineers and technicians, claim representatives, police officers and health, building and agricultural inspectors and public sector personnel.
Map-based mobile applications can improve service, reduce response times, increase individual and group performance and improve operational efficiency by providing every individual worker with quick and easy access to maps and important underlying information. Applications can be created to enable any workforce to track, manage, update or access information in the field.
24 x 7 Access to Data and Applications
Applications built using MapInfo MapX Mobile work anywhere because they do not require wireless connectivity. The application and data reside on the device. Any and all data can be synchronised with the desktop as often as is necessary or desirable, including MapInfo .TAB and .GST files. Applications can also connect to Pocket Access and Microsoft® SQL Server CE.
Mobile applications created with MapInfo MapX Mobile can also receive content via a wireless connection. For example, an application written with MapXMobile can display maps generated by MapInfo MapXtreme®, our Internet/intranet mapping application server.
Simplified Coding, Simplified Migration from other MapInfo Products
With skills familiar to those working with Visual Basic® and Visual C++, and using Windows® CE embedded Visual Tools 3.0, developers can quickly go to work and easily design and implement mapping applications. MapInfo MapX Mobile also ships with a variety of sample applications and offers a streamlined object model, extensive methods and events, efficient property pages and defaults and other wizards to help simplify application development.
In addition, MapInfo MapX Mobile
can be used to mobilise any existing applications
written with MapInfo development tools. It shares a common object
model with MapInfo MapX and MapInfo MapXtreme for Windows, so
moving applications from desktop to Internet to PDA requires only
the essential platform-specific modifications. Performance, look,
feel and functionality can all be maintained, making wide-scale
rollouts faster and easier.
Create Powerful, Multi-Featured Applications
Maps and spatial functions find
their way into the applications of people with many different
levels of need and technical skill: from sales professionals to
service personnel, public sector personnel to field engineers.
Application developers can serve up simple functionality to some
and sophisticated functionality to others. Even novice users can
be given access to sophisticated spatial functionality within
