  • 41. Agenda 1. Introduction 2. Products 3. Platforms 4. Open source analysis 5. Feature comparison 6. Perfomance tests 7. Conclussions
  • 42. Perfomance Tests Only for Windows Mobile Products Only for common data formats
  • 45. Perfomance Tests. Datasets Vectorial Datasets FOSS4G 2010 Dataset (ShapeFile) Raster Datasets ECW from CNIG (Spanish Nat. Mapping Agency)
  • 46. Perfomance Tests. Methodology Manual measurement. Stopwatch. Averaging Minimal threshold = 0,2 s. Operations tested: Add a layer. Zoom to a small area. Pan. Fit all (Zoom to Extent)
  • 47. Perfomance Tests. Methodology Used device. PDA: - Acer S200 - Processor: Qualcomm 1 Ghz - Memory: 256 KB SDRAM. - ROM: 512 KB. - Screen: 480 x 800 px. - O.S.: Windows Mobile 6.5
  • 48. Perfomance Tests. Results Vectorial Datasets. Small/Medium
  • 49. Perfomance Tests. Results Vectorial Datasets. Large
  • 50. Perfomance Tests. Results Raster Datasets For small zooms, no response in Enebro within 5 mins.
  • 51. Agenda 1. Introduction 2. Products 3. Platforms 4. Open source analysis 5. Feature comparison 6. Perfomance tests 7. Conclussions
  • 52. Enebro
    • Very good software, quite fast and free
    • 53. Not open development, no public repositories
    • 54. No developer documentation
    • 55. Confusing license
    • 56. Very few spread
  • 57. Very light applications
    • Application like gvSIG Mini or TangoGPS that support only tiles (OSM, yahoo maps...) or WMS are fast and light and powerful
    • 58. This kind of applications are growing in number
    • 59. With a few more work is possible to add custom forms and POI creation to do asset inventory and maintenance and incidence reporting
  • 60. New devices and platforms
    • Android and iOS devices are “cheap” and powerful, include cameras, aGPS, WiFi and CellId based location, compass, accelerometers, light sensors and so on.
    • 61. The new boom of tablets provides bigger screens with small weights and good battery consumption
    • 62. Multitouch screens require new interfaces
    • 63. The number of users is astonishing
  • 64. Layar and Augmented Reality
    • Augmented reality provides users the possibility to see located objects over the real world
    • 65. The spread of Layar is *15 the spread of ArcPad
    • 66. ¿Could it be interesting for the GIS community to use mobile AR professionally?
  • 67. Web based touch applications
    • There are some initiatives to make the web mapping possible on mobile
    • With HTML5 personal database is possible to have offline data
    • 70. We will keep an eye on those projects
  • 71. Desktop applications optimized for mobility
    • Beegis is an application developed to be used by geologists on outdoor surveys
    • 72. Is built on top of Jgrass, so it has a lot of functionality
    • 73. It works on tablet-PCs
    • 74. Its key functionalities are
      • Geonotes tool
      • 75. GPS tool
  • 76. The number of applications
    • We searched very hard for FLOSS mobile Geo applications with very few results
    • 77. Did we missed any important software?
    • 78. What are the reasons for such a few results?
  • 79. Are the OS applications comparable to ArcPad? (I)
    • In both FLOSS apps and ArcPad Is possible to:
      • field mapping
      • 80. inventory and mantainment of assets
      • 81. incidence reporting
      • 82. inspections
    • ArcPad does not support any open or OGC format
    • 83. Performance is perfectly comparable and in some cases gvSIG Mobile is even faster
  • 84. Are the OS applications comparable to ArcPad? (II)
    • ArcPad has great documentation, a good customization framework and good integration with ArcGIS
    • 85. gvSIG Mobile (the most complete OS App) does not support rangefinder or dgps or camera and geometry editing is poor compared to ArcPad at this moment
  • 86. To do
    • FLOSS Mobile GIS still have to work on
      • Making better documentation and tutorials
      • 87. Making the software easier to install and use
      • 88. Expand the user and developer community
      • 89. Support professional equipment like rangefinder and dgps
    • Keep an eye on new interactions (multitouch), new hardware (+1GB RAM, Sensors), new approaches (AR) and new possibilities (HTML5, WiFi and CellID location)
