1. Make sure your mobile device has .NET Compact Framework 3.7 support, or your desktop OS has .NET Framework 2 support. 2. Install Mobile Engine Runtime to the device. (available in Redist folder under SuperGIS Mobile Engine) 3. Copy all the necessary application files of your project to the device. 4. If any question, refer to the Help Demo of deployment.
Before you deploy any custom applications, including SuperGIS Mobile Application, to mobile devices, you must install Mobile Engine Runtime on the mobile devices you want to deploy to at first. The Mobile Engine Runtime is included in Redist folder of SuperGIS Mobile Engine folder.
SuperGIS Mobile Application is included with each release of SuperGIS Mobile Engine 3. You can easily deploy the configurable out-of-the-box SuperGIS Mobile Application to any mobile device supporting Microsoft® .NET CF 2 or above for basic field survey. In addition, SuperGIS Mobile Application can also be used as a foundation to develop mobile GIS applications with value-added functions instead of developing a brand new application from zero, reducing the development time.
SuperGIS Mobile Engine is a SDK for developing mobile GIS solutions, but is not intended for consumer use. SuperGIS Mobile Engine can assist GIS community and professionals who have a need for developing an ideal mobile GIS application or GIS tools which will be embedded into an existing mobile application. In addition, SuperGIS Mobile Engine allows you to deploy applications on a large scale with lower cost to maximize the field workers' productivity.
When deploying custom mobile GIS applications developed by SuperGIS Mobile Engine, you can deploy them to: Windows XP/ Vista Windows Mobile software for Pocket PC 2003/ Windows CE 5.0 Windows Mobile 5.X/6.x for Pocket PC and Smartphone
In addition, the .NET Framework 2.0 or higher is required for Windows Vista and XP and the .NET Compact Framework 3.7 is required for Windows Mobile 5.x / 6.x devices. The .NET Compact Framework 3.7 is included in the ROM on Windows Mobile 6.x devices; however, Windows Mobile 5.x devices do not. The redistributable is available for download.
Yes, SuperGIS Mobile Engine 3 contains 20 developer samples. These samples can help you to know how to customize GIS functions you need and also can be used as the base to proceed with advanced customization.
SuperGIS Mobile Engine 3 provides rich developer resources, such as 20 developer samples, object diagrams and user guide. These resources can assist you in clearly understanding how to use objects to customize mobile GIS applications.
Yes, you can customize SuperGIS Mobile Application depending on your needs. SuperGIS Mobile Application is an easy-to-use mobile GIS application built in SuperGIS Mobile Engine. You can not only deploy it directly for basic field tasks but also use SuperGIS Mobile Application as a foundation to develop applications with value-added functions.
SuperGIS Mobile Engine 3 supports the vector formats, such as GEO, SHP and DXF, and many common-used raster image formats, including SGR (SuperGeo Raster File), BMP, GIF, PNG, MrSID, ECW, LAN, Tiff, JPG and JPG2000.
The SuperGIS Mobile Engine and SuperGIS Mobile Application use the same API to connect with GPS receivers. They work directly with GPS devices that support the National Marine and Electronics Association (NMEA) 0183, which is a one-way protocol that SuperGIS Mobile Engine supports. In addition to NMEA 0183, SuperGIS Mobile Engine can also support to define other GPS protocol to satisfy your needs.
