Mobile app modernises workplace field collection

May 2nd, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Boundless released its first mobile application: Boundless Anywhere for iOS and Android. The app aims to extend the Boundless Exchange web application to handheld devices, modernising workplace field data collection. Today’s enterprises demand a streamlined collection workflow – one that integrates efficient mobile technologies to make faster decisions for mapping, analysis, and reporting. The app syncs mobile data with Boundless Exchange when the user is online; if they are working offline, they can sync it manually once connected again – a useful feature since a good network connection is never guaranteed in some remote or secure environments. This capability includes photo capture, which allows the user to attach photos to features. The Mapbox basemap in the background also allows quick draw time, with smooth, fast, and attractive rendering. Thought has also gone into the user interface and experience, with the goal of making the app intuitive and fun to use since GIS concepts and apps can get complicated. The app will allow Boundless users to validate data, make observations, respond, and communicate.
