When the operational landscape changes frequently, then rapid, accurate, purpose-built, mission-focused communication is key to success. This is the working domain of the Dynamic Situational Awareness example app (DSA) built using ArcGIS Runtime. DSA enables physically distributed teams to work as one, maintaining current status on teammates while exploring and illuminating the operational landscape. DSA is an example app intended and designed for the developer who wants to build their own custom field operation apps. Built using the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Qt, DSA highlights developer best practices for the specific workflows for in-vehicle (mounted) and field (handheld/dismounted) teams who need to dynamically understand their environment and the situation around them.
