In addition, Open Street Map Vector Tiles basemap from OpenMapTiles are supported with Stylesheets preloaded in mbtiles format.
Super fast and efficient rendering of large datasets.
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.
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.
The app supports many formats of offline files and database. (Mbtiles, GeoPackage, Shapefiles, GeoJSON, KML)
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)
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
Save map extent/location so you can easily come back to an area. Create unlimited spatial bookmarks
Select Multiple Basemaps from open source and commercial providers. Google, Bing, ESRI, Stamen, Thunderforest, Open Street Map, HERE, CartoDB, NASA and others.
We full support OGC GPKG – GeoPackage SQLite format for offline vector features and raster tiles and elevation tiles
Perform analysis and geoprocessing operations like Buffer, voronoi, center, envelop, convex, bounding box and other operations all offline with no server-side processing and include previous operations for chaining commands together
display reference graticule and gridlines and numbers Including Metric, Imperial,UTM and MGRS
If you load a GeoJSON file the app will automatically split the file (up to 200mb) into tiles 256×256 pixels and different zoom levels for rapid display and rendering. We also support MapBox Vector Tiles (gzipped PBF) inside MBTiles or via an online XYZ Tile Server. We also support Open Street Map Vector Tiles with different stylesheets
Support for high precision external Bluetooth GPS / GNSS Receivers
Take your survey and mapping and GIS data visualization and data capture to the next level with submeter sub-foot and centimeter (RTK) positions via external Bluetooth, Serial, USB GNSS Receivers (GPS Global Positioning Systems). You can even work with Real-Time Networks (RTN) Continous Operating Reference Receivers and other services for position corrections.
Measure Length and Area
Measure Tools allow you to measure complex linear/lines and area/polygon measurements.
Works Landscape or Portrait Mode
Responsive design that’s flexible to enable you to work landscape or portrait and any screen size/resolution/pixel density Table of Contents Collapses and Top Menu becomes side menu as needed
