iGIS - The world's first and leading iOS GIS.

True GIS functionality is now available on the iPad! Your iPad. Your data. Your maps.

iGIS represents a new era in mobile GIS solutions by enabling users to load, view, investigate, create and export their own data over a background of map service imagery.

Importing data is easy with our unique data import facility supporting Mac, PC and Linux or via the USB cable. ESRI Shapefiles (.shp) are supported at the moment.

Great for field work as your spatial data is stored on the iPad, so there is no need for an Internet connection to see your data. We also support over 3000 projections, so there is no need for data re-projection.

We include support for multiple layers of points, lines, and polygons and imagery – all styled as you like.

Add comments to your maps - A point layer is added with a name and description field. You can add or edit any of your layers - and even define your own data entry forms with dropdown lists for codes, etc.

Export your layers to ESRI shapefiles for use back in your enterprise.

Other features include:

- Great speed, using our multi-threaded map renderer.
- Support for large datasets.
- Add your own imagery
- Import and export of ESRI Shapefiles.
- Display current GPS location in your chosen projection ( + compass)
- Zoom to current location
- Zoom to data extent
- Map Pan, zoom in, zoom out
- Changeable drawing styles for a layer: size, color, transparency
- Set the draw order and visibility of map layers
- Set the zoom scale for layers via a simple slider
- Select and interrogate feature attributes via point and click

This application is designed for GIS professionals and an understanding of some basic GIS concepts such as layers, shapefiles, projections etc, would make using iGIS simpler. Please let us know if concepts in iGIS are unclear.

We know there’s a lot more functionality that we haven’t included. Let us know what features you’d like to see added or improved.

iGIS can use the GPS in the background. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Thanks for your interest,

The Geometry Team

Got worse

I used to use this during graduate school and found it to be a handy tool. I recently tried it again for a project after not opening it for a couple of years.

The interface seems polished. Unfortunately, the app is much less capable than it used to be. Many things I touch (for example, changing symbology) inform me that I need to subscribe to do. This is a surprise, since I originally paid for this app. Furthermore, several shapefiles I tried to load from the Natural Earth dataset failed to load with a message that the CRS selected was wrong (it wasn't). Finally, some complex shapefiles that did import displayed with weird artifacts that I don't see in the desktop programs QGIS or ArcGIS.

Overall, I'm pretty disappointed and wish I could get the old version back.

Total garbage!!!

Waste of money. Could not be more frustrated with this piece of crap app. Does not load shapefiles spits out error after error. All spatial files work fine on my computer but not on this garbage. DON'T BUY!!!

Outstanding, powerful and easy to use mobile GIS

Discovering iGIS has made field data collection much easier than using professional surveying equipment. It works with standard data file formats, is simple to use even for newbies, and is very reliable. I wish I new about iGIS before spending money on Trimble Juno 5's. the web site mentions providing "pro" options for a fee, but they are apparently not available yet.
