Some exciting things have been taking place over the past few weeks…
I decided to take the fruits of all this labor and build a new mobile web application that may or may not be useful to others out there. The result is the NYS Orthos Online Mobile application (NYSOOM). NYSOOM is basically a touch-optimized mobile version of the NYS Orthos Online site. I took the ArcGIS REST services hosted by the state and plugged them into the OpenLayers jQuery Mobile example that was a product of the code sprint in Lausanne. So if you are curious about the Empire State, break out your smartphone and peruse through the entire imagery collection (1994-Present). The current URL of the application is http://geoserving.net/nysoom, but if there is any interest I may move it to another domain.
Let me know what you think!
PS- You can check out the application on your desktop using Google’s Chrome browser.
