New in version 2.2.

You can learn more about main features of Web GIS in Web GIS.

3.9.1. New Web GIS creation

3.9.2. Connection to Web GIS

To create a connection to an existing Web GIS account:

  1. Open Layers tree panel (item 1 in Pic. 3.2.).
  2. Then tap on “Add geodata” button (item 4 in Pic. 3.3.).
  3. Select “Add from Web GIS” (Pic. 3.82.)
  4. In opened dialogue select Web GIS (Pic. 3.83.).
  5. The dialog of layer selection for importing geodata from your Web GIS to NextGIS Mobile will open. If you have only one Web GIS, the dialog of layer selection for importing geodata from your Web GIS to NextGIS Mobile will open immediately after tapping “Add from Web GIS” button.

3.9.3. Connection to NextGIS Web

You can learn more about main features of NextGIS Web in Key features of NextGIS Web.

If you want to keep your data on your own NextGIS Web server, tap “Add Web GIS” using either of the ways to create a new Web GIS (see above), follow the link at the bottom of the screen (see Pic. 3.88.) and use your account.

Note

Login and password for NextGIS Web adding should be fiiled up without spaces! Many gadgets add a space at the end of the text during autosubstitution or pasting the text from the clipboard to the login/password, and NextGIS Web identifies this as another login or password and cancel the connection.

3.9.4. Editing of Web GIS account

To edit Web GIS account:

  1. Tap contextual menu icon (item 5 in Pic. 3.2.).
  2. Select “Settings” (Pic. 3.85.).
  3. Select “Web GIS” (Pic. 3.86.).
  4. Select Web GIS account (Pic. 3.87.).
  5. In opened window select “Edit account” (see Pic. 3.90.).

  1. Here you can edit the following fields (see Pic. 3.91.):
  1. Login.
  2. Password.

3.9.5. Deleting of Web GIS account

You can delete Web GIS account in a several ways. The first way is the following:

  1. Tap contextual menu icon (item 5 in Pic. 3.2.).
  2. Select “Settings” (Pic. 3.85.).
  3. Select “Web GIS” (Pic. 3.86.).
  4. Select Web GIS account (Pic. 3.87.).
  5. In opened window select “Delete account” (see Pic. 3.92.).
../../_images/remove_account1_eng.png

Pic. 3.92. Settings dialogue.

  1. Delete selected Web GIS account.
  2. In the case of successful deleting, the window with Web GIS selection will be opened without deleted Web GIS account.

The second way to delete Web GIS account is the following:

  1. Open OS settings of the gadget.
  2. Select “Accounts” in settings (see Pic. 3.93.).

3.9.6. Adding of a layer (vector/raster) from Web GIS

To add a layer (vector/raste) from Web GIS:

  1. Open Layers tree panel (item 1 in Pic. 3.2.).
  2. Then tap on “Add geodata” button (item 4 in Pic. 3.3.).
  3. Select “Add from Web GIS” (Pic. 3.82.)
  4. In opened dialogue select Web GIS (Pic. 3.83.). You can learn more about creating of Web GIS account in ngmobile_сreate_a_connection.
  5. In opened window you can see the list of internal resources and layers (vector and raster) for the selected Web GIS account (see Pic. 3.97.).
../../_images/list_of_files_eng.png

Pic. 3.97. The list of Web GIS internal resources and layers.

  1. Select a group of Web GIS resources and within it tick a layer (vector/raster) you want to add and tap “Add” (see Pic. 3.98.).

Note

If you need to select several layers in different groups of Web GIS account, the tick of the layer selection will keep while you switching over the groups.

  1. Layer’s processing dialogue includes options “Cancel” and “Hide” (see Pic. 3.99.).
../../_images/processing_layer_eng.png

Pic. 3.99. Layers’s processing dialogue.

To stop Web GIS layer’s processing tap “Cancel” button. To avoid program’s interface blocking and to continue working with NextGIS Mobile tap “Hide” button. As a result Web GIS layers’s processing dialogue will be transfered to status panel (see Pic. 3.100.).

Note

To stop the processing of Web GIS layer, which was transfered to status panel touch the screen on the layer’s processing panel with thumb and forfinger and move them in different directions sliding along the screen. The indicator of the Web GIS layer’s processing will be transfered to status panel and the “Stop” button will appear. Tap it to stop the processing of Web GIS layer.

After you execute all above mentioned selected Web GIS layers (vector/raste) will be added to a map and will be shown up in the layers tree.

3.9.7. Synchronization settings for Web GIS vector layer

Synchronization helps to interchange of geodata corrections quickly and to provide the identity of information interchanging between user’s PC and mobile gadget. To syncronize Web GIS vector layer:

  1. Tap contextual menu icon (item 5 in Pic. 3.2.).
  2. Select “Settings” (Pic. 3.85.).
  3. Select “Web GIS” (Pic. 3.86.).
  4. Select Web GIS account (Pic. 3.87.).
  5. In will open a dialogue with options (see Pic. 3.101.):
    • automatic synchronization;
    • synchronization interval (can be set to 5 minutes - 2 hours);
    • synchronization of the Web GIS layers.

After a Web GIS layer for synchronization is selected the icon of the synchronization beginning appears near the the icon of the selected layer and near the icon of that layer on the layers tree (see Pic. 3.102.):
