Cadenza GIS 2go: Mobile GIS for smartphones and tablets

Be it on your smartphone or tablet - Mobile GIS means that you always have your spatial data with you - even offline in the field, i.e. without an Internet connection. The GIS app Cadenza GIS 2go allows you to transfer the desired map section from Cadenza Desktop via the Cadenza GIS 2go server. You can then again use Cadenza Desktop to synchronize the data captured via your mobile GIS.

Mobile GIS - for maximum convenience

With the GIS app Cadenza GIS 2go you can capture, edit and maintain your spatial data on your mobile device - even without an Internet connection (offline). You can transfer any number of maps from Cadenza Desktop to your mobile device and combine them as desired. The GIS app Cadenza GIS 2go is available for both iOS and Android devices.

Use your custom mobile map including all attribute data and media files. You can pan and zoom map sections, track your current location with the GPS function, use the compass function, calculate direction and distance to a destination, and even calculate polygon geometries and distances.

Use the slider to show and hide map layers. If you want to capture data, you can easily switch between geometry and attribute data. But it is also possible to access feature-related attribute data, documents and media data.

The graphic notebook offers plenty of features allowing you to capture data conveniently while on the move: From simple notes to spots, lines and polygons on your maps - enriched with additional information or image and audio files.

The magnifying glass feature helps you precisely position vertices when capturing geometries. The actual image with the exact position under the finger is thus being magnified. Usually, this position is hidden by the finger capturing the data.

Cadenza GIS 2go offers even more: In Cadenza Desktop you can configure and export map layers as specific land registries. These facilitate mobile processing of your features' attribute data. Data processing can thus be carried out in a much more structured way with the help of specialist validators and predefined attributes or by selecting values from key lists.

The GPS function of your mobile device will help you capture or modify a feature's geometry. Mobile data maintenance can be as simple as this.

Configure your Mobile GIS solution according to your specific requirements

All mobile solutions based on Cadenza GIS 2go follow the same principle: First, you prepare your data in Desktop GIS Cadenza for export to your mobile device via the Cadenza GIS 2go server or via USB cable. The mobile maps can then be edited offline on your mobile device using Cadenza GIS 2go. In the same way, the mobile data is imported back into the Desktop GIS.

You can thus configure your mobile solution according to your specific requirements - regardless of whether you use a single or multiple mobile devices - there are no limits! You are also flexible in terms of the size of the storage space. This means you can expand the space in the Disy cloud as required at any time. For example, if you need in-house data storage for data protection reasons, you can also operate the Cadenza GIS 2go server as an in-house solution integrated into your IT infrastructure. The mobile maps can be easily distributed to many users via the Cadenza GIS 2go server. An ideal approach for all those who wish to provide mobile GIS solutions throughout their organization.

In Cadenza Desktop you define how the maps intended for mobile offline use should look like. In the export dialog, you specify the desired map section, the display scale, the export format as grid or vector data, the desired coordinate system, and the layers to be exported. The mobile map is then uploaded from your desktop application to the Cadenza GIS 2go server and transferred to the mobile device. In addition, you can choose from a wide range of setting options for efficient data transfer.

 

There are two options for synchronization between Cadenza Desktop and Cadenza GIS 2go: Data is synchronized via a self-hosted Cadenza GIS 2go server (on premise) or via the cloud hosted by Disy. Both methods allow for synchronization with one or any number of mobile devices. The role of an administrator has proven effective, especially when you use a mobile solution with multiple users. It is his or her task to take care of the administration of the accounts registered on the server. Moreover, they assign different roles to the users and coordinate maps and map changes centrally.

Cadenza Desktop provides a so-called staging area for the import of mobile data, which allows you to validate map modifications and import specific changes. This is an important requirement, especially when it comes to the operation of mobile custom applications. For better orientation, the mobile features you modified are listed and displayed in the overall layout plan. Cadenza also offers batch processing so that a large number of modifications can be processed even faster.
