QuakeFeed in App Store, Webinar, White Paper

by James Richards December 01, 2010

QuakeFeed Now Available in the App Store

QuakeFeed is now available in the App Store! This is a free app that I've created using the Esri ArcGIS API for iOS.

Download Now: QuakeFeed in the iTunes Store

The app displays all earthquakes from the past 7 days with a magnitude > 2.5 on a map or in list. Six beautiful base maps are provided by Esri. A variety of filter and sort options are available. The app is location aware so you can find quakes that are closest to you. It has an intuitive user interface and features Twitter, Facebook, and email integration.

Esri ArcGIS for iOS Webinar Archive

Earlier this month I participated in a Directions Media Webinar in which I shared some tips & tricks and lessons learned while developing QuakeFeed and working on another ArcGIS API for iOS integration project for our client CitySourced. The archive of this webinar is now available on the Directions site.

View now: ArcGIS for the iPhone and iPad (Registration Required). 

Note: My portion of the Webinar starts at 22:45.


Esri ArcGIS For iOS White Paper

For this event, myself and Kurt Daradics of CitySourced also collaborated on a technical white paper.

The paper begins with an overview of the CitySourced app and the reasons why they migrated to the ArcGIS API for iOS.

A technical discussion follows, with code samples that show:

  • Base map options available through the API.
  • Waiting for the map to load before drawing graphics.
  • How to perform WGS84 to Web Mercator transformation on the device.
  • Tips for drawing pins on the map for improved usability.

For those if you interested in working with the ArcGIS API for iOS, I'll be expanding on these topics and more in the coming weeks.
