100’s of Features

Fast and Powerful Mapping Engine 

We designed GeoData Explorer after using countless other mobile apps and being frustrated with their limited Geospatial Data format support, no attribute table viewing and lack of easy use and sometimes vendor lock-in.  So we set out to engineer this product to meet our specifications and realized the benefit it would have to other users.

Map Viewing

Configure different basemaps from our basemap picker or add a new one URL. Display Coordinates (GPS Lat Long, UTM, MGRS, USNG, Maidenhead) and Graticule Lines Our mapping engine is one of the fastest rendering of data you’ll find.

Offline/Disconnected Data

The app supports many formats of offline files and database. (Mbtiles, GeoPackage, Shapefiles, FileGDB, GeoJSON, KML)

Spot Elevation

Display Spot Elevation Values for anywhere with and without internet (when offline data is loaded)

We support MapZen Terrarium PNG Tiles Format from tile server and inside MBTILES. Display Terrain Profile view Graph (see the slope/steepness)

j

Draw features and assign attributes

Drop a point, Ciricle, Line, Polygon feature on the map and assign unlimited keys and values (attributes) to that location and save as GeoJSON (coming soon save as GPKG).  Also, attach media to the location. Full styling control for symbology representation.

Your Position on Map

Show your position on the map via Geolocation Geolocation feature works with GNSS Receivers (GPS) or WiFi via IP Address. Display routes on the map as well.  Display North Compass Arrow Display Coordinates in multiple formats

Spatial Bookmarks

Notes about Data

Data Notes:

GeoTiff Raster Imagery Support is limited! (EPSG:4326 Geographic WGS84 and less than 25mb in size)
It’s advised that you spend a few minutes and use QGIS Desktop or GDAL_Translate and convert your TIF to mbtiles or geopackage format.  https://www.gdal.org/gdal_translate.html

Vector Features from ESRI Shapefile (SHP) and FileGeodatabase must be inside a zipfile and data must be UnProjected EPSG:4326 Geographic WGS84 (GCS_WGS_1984).   Each zip file can only contain one shapefile or one filegdb and no subfolders.

If you have an entire folder of shapefiles you want to include in the app, then simply use GDAL’s OGR2OGR to convert to OGC GeoPackage Format.  https://www.gdal.org/ogr2ogr.html

For ESRI Map Services do not include at the end of the URL any query parameters (/query?outFields=*&where=1%3D1).
