Track: State and Local Government
Authors: Erick Pate
The rapid rise of mobile computing is a major disruptive force that cannot be ignored when serving up maps to citizens. Calvert County is redeploying its public-facing GIS viewers to fully support mobile computing devices (without an app) as well as improve their overall usability. This is accomplished by using components of ArcGIS Online and third-party software to create a web map experience that does not intimidate or frustrate casual users but is powerful enough for more demanding users.
