Having joined Geospatial Insight (GSI) in 2020 as a Full Stack Web Developer I have been utilising the Hexagon’s portfolio, in particular M.App Enterprise, to create and maintain a number of Smart Apps for use by our clients. One application that I have been working on recently is MotionMonitor – tracking tailing dam displacement to indicate necessary maintenance and act as an early warning system for potential failure.
M.App Enterprise Dashboard for MotionMonitor
"...THE PLATFORM IS VERY POWERFUL AND YOU WILL QUICKLY LEARN HOW IT CAN CREATE A RICH WEB MAP EXPERIENCE."
I have been predominantly working with OpenLayers library, but the M.App Enterprise suite has given me the opportunity to learn a new web mapping library and use different techniques for visualisation. In the future I am planning on working increasingly with the Luciad Fusions API functionality, with the goal to automate more processes to increase the ease of use for the client and minimise the risk of human error.
If I had to give advice for anyone contemplating M.App Enterprise to realise their vision, it would be to be patient but get stuck in – the platform is very powerful and you will quickly learn how it can create a very rich web map experience.
