Touch Maps: Never Easier
Mapping has never been easier. We’ve managed to eliminate the need to use GIS while remaining compatible with GIS applications. Just click on the map, and the latitude and longitude will automatically be entered with accuracy roughly ten times better than average GPS readings. This new technology, called Touch Map, makes geolocation collection and display super simple. When internet/cellular access is not available, you can revert to using the GPS chip in your device.
Export to Arc, Google Earth, Anything that Respects Open Standards
Working with open standards, the map information can be exported to Google Earth, ArcGIS, or any other platform using today’s current standard KML file format.
Customize Your Maps
Make quick maps that show points labeled by one factor, such as type of obseration, and colored by another factor, such as year visited. Export those to a Google Maps account so you can provide people with URLs where they can click on an icon to see the complete attribution table of that area. Easily customize colors, icons, sizes, map sizes, scales and labels.
