Gislet Extractor

The Extractor allows you to define and manage the field data extracted from your Smallworld database. This data is later uploaded to the device and allows for full-scale work with Smallworld assets without connection to the Smallworld server. You make an extract by defining:

  1. An offline profile, which details the graphical and object data required by the particular field worker.
  2. The area required by field workers.
  3. The schedule for creating the initial extract and, if required, any future updates.

The Extractor prepares data from Smallworld database and saves it in a suitable format. The data is uploaded to the mobile device using LAN, internet or USB-drive.

Gislet Service

The Gislet service (middleware) acts as a bridge between the client application and Smallworld GeoSpatial Server.
