View hundreds of public maps from the National Park Service and other users. Can't find a map? Stretch your own image onto the interactive map, then use your compass and GPS to navigate with ease. Map Stretch features an easy to use interface with no hassles or hidden fees of any kind, EVER!

Map Stretch now features GPS tracking to record your route. Tracks and drawings can be easily edited, saved and shared with others.

A Quick Overlay Example:
You are handed a brochure with a map highlighting interesting places to visit...

With Map Stretch, you can:
- Find that someone has already stretched and shared the map from your brochure and add it to your map with a single tap.
- Snap a photo of the map in the brochure.
- Stretch it to match the map on your phone.
- Know exactly where you are (and which direction you are facing) on the brochure map at all times.

+ Map Stretch is completely free and requires no login or registration.
+ Sharing your stretched photos is optional and is done anonymously.
+ Map Stretch Lines and Overlays can be imported and exported in Google Earth kml and kmz formats.

What’s New

Version 5.0

Bug fixes:
- Fixed a bug that would keep public overlays from showing on the map.
- Fixed a few layout bugs to make buttons more tappable.

Finally, a simple to use georeferencing app! Perfect for hiking and backpacking. Super simple to upload and reference a trail map. I use other apps with geoPDFs, but they do not allow the user to georeference their own images in the app, so thank you for making such a user friendly app!

A hiker's dream come true!

I used this awesome app on a recent backpacking trip in Joshua Tree NP and found it to be incredibly useful. It's simple to use (just snap a photo of a map or use one that's already been loaded) and made navigating new trails super easy.

I would pay for this if it was updated to latest iOS. Great idea for people who are looking for this kind of functionality.
