Esri Launches Geotrigger Service for Mobile Developers

Redlands, Calif., Feb. 19, 2014—Esri announced today that its cloud-based Geotrigger Service is now available, making it easier for developers to add location awareness and messaging to their iPhone and Android apps.

Geotrigger Service also adds additional logic to reduce the battery drain when using location services on mobile devices. Geotrigger SDKs provide a consistent interface supporting faster development of apps for both iOS and Android.

Developers can add the following location-based functions to apps with Geotrigger Service: 

  • Notify citizens about road closures, emergencies, or public safety warnings based on their past or current location.
  • Inform tourists about interesting places as they explore your city, theme park, and so forth.
