Insight | December 2018 update - part 3
Geolocations, satellite view and more... now mobile
Welcome to part 3 in our series on the December 2018 update for AVEVA Insight. So far we've looked at getting started, and making it even easier to improve operational performance. Today we will discover what's new on the Insight mobile app.
What's new in December 2018 - part 3
- View current location on a map
- Satellite view
- Styling changes to QuickView
View current location on a map
We introduced maps a few months ago and have had such positive feedback from our users that we wanted to improve this feature even further. Our first example is the new ability to view your current location on a map.
While this may not sound like much at first glance, this can be really important to those working in a distributed environment. All you have to do is click on the cross-hair and the view will adjust to your current geolocation.
The second example is Satellite view. This allows you to quickly understand where data is coming from, even when a street address isn't relevant. For example, an open cut mine, or smart sensor in the field, or a data field from within a large factory environment - now you can relate this information to physical environment at hand.
Styling changes to QuickView
You will also notice some tweaks to QuickView including blue fill under the line. This ties the mobile experience more closely with the rest of Insight, helping make it easier to see trends when you are out in the field.
Try it for yourself with a free 45-day trial of AVEVA Insight at https://insight.connect.aveva.com or for European users https://online.wonderware.eu. The mobile experience is included in your subscription so don't forget to download it from your favourite app store.
