Three outstanding planning tools for outdoor and landscape photographers: The Photographer's Ephemeris 3D, The Photographer's Ephemeris and The Photographer's Transit.

See how the light will fall on the land with TPE 3D and TPE: plan your sun, moon and star shots in locations around the world. TPE 3D lets you visualize the light against a detail 3D terrain model for the date and time you choose. TPE provides highly detailed information on times and directions of the light. Use the Visual Search feature to find the exact date and times when the sun or moon will give you the precise alignment you need for your shot.

"Head and shoulders above the crowd is The Photographer’s Ephemeris. Odd name, great app." - National Geographic

Search for any place name on the planet, or position the map pin exactly where you want it. Advanced features including visual sun and moon search, automatic time zone and elevation detection, correction for atmospheric refraction and height above the horizon, ensuring that you have the best possible information for planning your shoot.

The Photographer's Transit ("Photo Transit") is a map-based shot planning tool for outdoor photographers who use interchangeable lens cameras (such as SLRs). Plan the best possible camera, lenses and shooting locations for your photo trip or assignment using the sophisticated built-in field of view simulator.

Photo Transit includes detailed elevation profile information so you can scout your sightlines ahead of time, and check whether your planned focal length will capture your subject. Photo Transit's vertical field of view chart lets you see if your subject will be visible or obstructed by the local terrain.

Create projects containing detailed shot lists, including camera and subject location, height above the ground, pitch, orientation and focal length. Share your planned shots with colleagues and friends via email and social media, or export them as KML for use in your favourite GPS app.

With a rich feature set including offline maps and elevation data, and a choice of elevation data sources, The Photographer's Transit is a powerful tool for any photographer who likes to be well prepared.

See the individual app descriptions for details of many more advanced features.
