This guide describes how to build ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Qt apps that incorporate capabilities such as mapping, analysis, routing, and custom capabilities for use with the ArcGIS Platform. A great place to start developing once you've installed the SDK on Windows or Linux is to add a map to your app or browse the samples. For what's new this release, see Release notes.

With ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Qt, you can:

  • Write your code once and deploy it on Windows, and Linux.
  • Create focused apps with small memory and local storage requirements. You select the capabilities you want to deploy.
  • Build touch-screen apps for platforms such as tablets, desktops and in-vehicle mounted devices.
  • Develop and deploy side-by-side and on 64-bit operating systems.
  • Use either local server or online services for geoprocessing, geocoding and routing.
  • Develop apps that:
    • Consume content and services from ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS (using the Portal API) or from ArcGIS for Server
    • Let users work offline; you can provision their devices with several different types of packages, including geoprocessing packages that let them perform offline analysis
    • Perform 2D visualization and analysis and 3D analysis
    • Let users interactively add graphics and markup to a map
    • Display and animate large numbers of features
    • Search for features or attributes in your GIS data and display the results
    • Execute a geoprocessing model and display the results
    • Perform blazing fast offline searches for locations (geocode and reverse geocode) and routes.
