60min: Programming in the Geographic Context: A case study in cross-platform and spatially-enabled Qt applications


The Qt platform continues to strengthen with innovative contributions from a diverse user and developer community. Qt is beginning to enable location awareness in mission-critical systems world-wide, with visualization and mapping services and technologies leading the way. The key ingredient to any successful spatial app built with Qt is a strong, rich and intuitive geoservices API, giving the indispensable value of “the geographic context” to Qt applications and the decision-making process. Information that is analyzed in its geographic context provides deeper meaning to the analytical result. There are many well-known patterns, practices and standards-based approaches to bringing location information to the Qt platform and the broadening of it. Many location API contributors follow these important standards, and Esri is one of these. This paper talks about the critical value of geospatial contributions to the platform through the use of Esri’s ArcGIS Services and API platform, including Esri’s opensource geoservices plugin for Qt.

There are a number of very good Qt-based geolocation APIs available to developers. This session will give the audience a glimpse at how geospatial capabilities can be realized in Qt applications, using ArcGIS Qt APIs from Esri. It also covers what Esri's Qt APIs look like, how they work, and what can be created with them.
