GeoExt mobile (GXM)


While GeoExt offers a "Toolkit for Rich Web Mapping Applications" these applications will not provide full functionality when accessed with mobile devices. With the ever-growing use of smartphones such as the IPhone, IPad or Android based devices to access internet resources, a rich toolkit for mapping applications directly targeted at these devices was missing.

GeoExt Mobile — or GXM — wants to fill this gap by combining the powers of two extraordinary JavaScript libraries:

GXM wants to combine the powers of its base libraries and wants to provide usefull widgets and components that can be the foundation of your mobile-aware webgis applications.

Supported browsers

As GXM is based upon Sencha Touch, it supports the same browsers. You should expect GXM code to work on the native iOS browser (iPad, iPhone, etc.), the native Android browser on most devices and the desktop browsers Apple Safari or Google Chrome.
