Global Mapper Mobile

All the maps you need, in the palm of your hand.

Global Mapper Mobile is a powerful iPhone and iPad application for viewing and collecting GIS data. It utilizes the GPS capabilities of mobile devices to provide situational awareness and location intelligence for remote mapping projects.

A perfect complement to the desktop version of Global Mapper, the Mobile edition can display vector, raster, and elevation data layers that have been transferred from the desktop version of the software. It also provides tools for drawing, tracking, and form-based data collection using pre-configured attributes and picklists.

In addition to what’s new (listed above), the base version of Global Mapper Mobile is free of charge and provides an array of features and functions, including:
• Expanded built-in supported vector styles and custom symbols
• Terrain layer support offers hill shading, terrain shader display as Atlas shader, and the ability to view elevation at a specific location.
• Improved layer transparency setting with a color picker and support for Dark ModGPS-based field data collection
• Digitizing or drawing tools
• Feature attribute management
• Simple and efficient data deployment and return
• Self-contained map storage and display - No data connection is required
• Picture point creation from geotagged photos
• Online access to OpenStreetMap Data

Global Mapper Mobile Pro

Developed with today's mapping professionals in mind, the Pro version of Global Mapper Mobile supplements the functionality of the base version with an array of professional-grade tools, including. On top of the new features for v2.3
• Advanced GPS support to connect to external high accuracy Bluetooth GPS devices from vendors such as Bad Elf and EOS, among others
• Terrain shader selection/change within the app
• Enable water level display on terrain data
• Extensive preconfigured and customizable online data services
• The option to save this streamed data for offline use
• Support for GeoPackage and GeoPDF files
• Advanced projection support

Great Global Mapper tool

This is a free add-on for Global Mapper GIS desktop. As a first mobile app for GM it's not bad. It is a good field tool for dropping points, making notes, taking pics. You can also create gps logs and other geometry data. It's set up in an intuitive way so it's easy to use. I like that I can use it with Global Mapper desktop at no additional cost. If you haven't tried Global Mapper then you should and use this app with it.
