Navigation functionality in Mobile Map Works

Hi Team,


Can this be implemented in Mobile Map Works -  "mobile client should identify current location in space and navigate to the destination location"?


Actually, we came across a RFP which mentions about the above functional requirement.

Re: Navigation functionality in Mobile Map Works

Hi Shashank,


Navigation is not a simple function and strongly depends on the underlying map or map service. You require a good quality linear referenced data - having information such as start point, end point, one-way / two-way. A simplest option how to implement this could be:

  1. Having linear feature data (see more here Route data files)
  2. Set up OpenLS (Route) service
  3. Have a connector to this service in the WebMap Mobile application

I would recommend filling a Product Idea on this topic.
