Experience the intriguing panorama of the peaks surrounding you.
Have you ever wondered "What is the name of that prominent peak over there?” – find the answer simply by taking a look through the camera of your iPhone or Android device.
The advanced segmentation and display algorithms show you all peak names without obstructing the marvelous panorama.
Stagger even the greatest hiking buffs when showing off the fascinating panoramic view this application provides when standing on top of a mountain!
This app works on devices with a still camera and a magnetometer/accelerometer.
Using augmented reality, this app is fast and smooth, displaying information about the peaks near you. Position any peak within the cross hairs to see useful information, including peak name, height, distance from you, and also the difference in height from your current altitude.
Even if some peaks are behind others Peak Scanner still allows you to get details on them (obscured peaks are shown in grey).
You'll find Peak Scanner a much better experience than other apps of this type:
- fast start up time
- no finger taps required - just point!
- clean, easy to understand display that shows exactly what you want
- easy to use preferences to tailor the display
Peak Scanner includes data on mountain peaks from all over the world.
Database of British and Irish Hills (http://hills-database.co.uk)
OpenStreetMap contributors (http://www.openstreetmap.org)
Check out our Facebook page - just search "Peak Scanner Facebook"
Look at the landscape using the camera and labels are superimposed directly over the view. The labels can show the distance to the mountain peak, the bearing, and the height of the mountain.
Useful for walking and hiking when you want to know what mountains you're looking at!
You can switch to a Google Map view which also shows the peaks, plus your location and direction of view.
This is an experimental application that is extremely dependent on your GPS location and handset's compass bearing. If either are inaccurate then the names will appear in the wrong positions. Since the compass on many handsets is very unreliable this can prove frustrating - the application does have the feature to offset the bearing of the compass which can help, and doing the figure of 8 compass calibration can help as well. There are also user options for tweaking the smoothing of compass readings.
While using the camera view you don't need Internet access, but if you switch to the Google map view you'll need it for the maps.
The mountain peak database has been extracted from OpenStreetMap by Mayeul Kauffman - an amazing job, taking the number of peaks from hundreds to almost a million!
The app can be moved to the SD card if required, although the database is only about 10Mb, so it's not as large as you might imagine.

See what's near you where you travel in the Alps: Mountains, Lakes, Places, Buildings, etc. You don't even have to be nearby the Alps: You can manually set your location to a place in the Alps to pretend you are there. Decide if you want to see places nearby, or famous cities around the world.
Works everywhere: By the sea, in the mountains, in the city. Without the internet, without coverage.
Turn the phone sideways to view on the camera screen the places that are nearby. Take a picture of what you see, and send it by email, or post it on facebook, directly from the App!
You can also add your own places!
In Sight The Alps is also an altimeter, speedometer and also estimates the distance you've traveled. Choose between metric (km, meter) or imperial (miles, feet) units.
All data is built into the App, so you don't need internet. You only need internet when you use the map or send a picture on email or post it on facebook.
In Sight The Alps relies on the compass and GPS of your device. Best results are achieved if you are outside.

If looking at a landscape you are wondering which are the names of villages, mountains or cities in front of you, then Panoramondo is the app for you.
In fact, it will be sufficient to look through the screen of your smartphone to discover the names of the places intriguing you and determine the distance between you and them.
You will be able to take some pictures of your views enriched with the names of places, your position and your altitude at the moment of the picture, the compass orientation and share them on you preferred social networks.
The setting menu will allow you to set up each characteristic of the app.
For example, if you are travelling by car and you are looking at the view outside the window, then it would be helpful to set up a strong filter for the compass noise instead of a normal one.
It is possible to set Panoramondo action range through the appropriate double slider or using the volume keys to display all places starting from your position and up to 40 Km.
As an alternative it is possible to specify from the setting menu or double slider the minimum distance from which starting the places display.
Currently the archive, divided by nation, contains:
3.060.622 places of the world
1.042.852 among the main mountains of the world

The result was this app. It shows a compass with arrows that point straight towards the tops of Bergen's seven mountains. Just as the monument on Ulriken! You can see what the nearest mountain is called, how high it is, and how far away it is. Perfect when you go the Seven Mountain Trip!
If you hold your phone upright, the compass will be replaced by a camera view. On top of the camera picture you will see markers which shows where the seven mountains are (augmented reality). In addition, you will also see the names of other places that are in front of you. You can take photos directly from the app, and these names will be printed on top of the picture.
Compass and camera is nice, but for a successful trip on the city mountains you also need a map. Therefore, this app will also show you a hiking map, where the route of the 7-mountain trip and the seven tops are marked.
If you click on an arrow or marker, you will see a list of hiking blogs. These are blogs from the Norwegian Mountains Forum (Norsk fjellforum, http://www.fjellforum.no). Do you have your own blog that you want to include? Register it on the forum and it will also appear in the list!
Finally a little note: Traditionally the people of Bergen have never agreed on which of the surrounding mountains that are in fact the famous seven. In this app we use the defination of the Bergen Hiking Association (Bergen turlag), ie .:
However, this must not be seen as a definitive answer, or an inlay in the debate;)
Interested in more than just the seven mountains? Also check out the app "Norwegian Hiking Compass". It gives you a similar app for all the major tops in Norway!

Die Grundlage der App bildet eine zoombare, topografische Outdoorkarte im Maßstab 1:25.000. Die Karte ist online oder offline verfügbar und wird für den Alpenraum, je nach Jahreszeit, schneebedeckt oder im Sommergewand dargestellt. In den obersten Zoomstufen beinhaltet sie neben dem amtlichen Wegenetz sogar sämtliche Lifte und Pisten und einen Hangneigungsindikator. Sämtliche Hangpartien über 30° Neigung sind mit einer roten Schraffierung versehen. Die Karten können, losgelöst von der Tourendatenbank, überall im deutschen, österreichischen und Südtiroler Alpenraum zur Positionsbestimmung und Tourennavigation eingesetzt werden.
Da besonders im Gebirge die Mobilfunknetzabdeckung nicht immer ausreichend ist, können alle topografischen Karten auch offline gespeichert werden und funktionieren so völlig Netz unabhängig!
Das Herzstück der ORTOVOX BERGTOUREN APP ist die große, immer weiter wachsende Tourendatendank. Du kannst tausende Ski-, Snowboard-, Wander-, Hoch- und Biketouren sowie Freerideabfahrten oder Klettersteige nach den unterschiedlichsten Kriterien auswählen:
• Alphabetische Auflistung: Alle Touren werden in alphabetischer Reihenfolge angezeigt.
• Auflistung nach Entfernung: Die Tourenliste wird nach der Entfernung zum eigenen Standort sortiert
• Filterung nach Sportart: Alle Touren werden anhand verschiedener Kategorien angezeigt (Skitour, Schneeschuhtour, Freeride, Wandern, Hochtour, Klettersteig, MTB)
• Suche nach Ort: Eine Volltextsuche innerhalb der Listendarstellung ermöglicht eine Filterung der Touren nach dem Kriterium Ort
• Anforderung: Die Touren können nach Alphabet, Entfernung und Dauer der jeweiligen Tour sortiert werden
Zu jeder Tour kannst Du auch die Anfahrt planen - die ORTOVOX BERGTOUREN APP schließt sich und die Google-Maps App zeigt Dir automatisch den Weg zum Startpunkt der Tour an.
In den Tourenbeschreibungen erfährst Du alle wissenswerten Facts, kannst Bilder, das Höhenprofil und die Karte anschauen. Sobald Du eine Tour startest, siehst Du Dein Positionssignal in der topografischen Karte und folgst dem Routenverlauf.
Bereits zuhause oder auch unterwegs kannst Du künftig Deine eigenen Touren planen. Zuhause kannst Du im Tourenplaner unter ortovox.com mit der Maus die Wegstrecken der 1:25.000 Karten abfahren, Wegpunkte setzen, Beschreibungen ergänzen und gegebenenfalls Bilder hochladen.
Ähnliche Funktionen kannst Du auch in der App nutzen. Egal ob online oder offline, Du kannst in den topografischen Karten Wegpunkte setzen und Dir das Live-Höhenprofil der geplanten Tour anzeigen lassen.
Auch für Notfälle haben wir eine Hilfestellung parat. Mittels Notruffunktion kann eine Verbindung zur Rettungsstelle hergestellt werden. Zur möglichst genauen Positionsbestimmung werden Dir Deine Koordinaten auf dem Display angezeigt – Retter wissen so, wo sie suchen müssen.
Wer sich alles Wissenswerte zum Thema Lawine aneignen möchte, kann dies jederzeit offline mit dem umfangreichen Lawinenglossar von ORTOVOX machen. Hier erhältst Du alle Infos vom Grundlagenwissen über Risikomanagement bis hin zur Rettung.
ORTOVOX steht für Bergsport - Berge sind unsere Leidenschaft. Wir sind 365 Tage im Jahr im Gebirge unterwegs, sammeln Ideen für neue Produkte oder genießen einfach nur unseren Sport! Solltest Du Ideen oder Verbesserungsvorschläge zur App oder unseren Produkten haben, freuen wir uns auf Deine Nachricht: email@example.com
Ein wichtiger Hinweis:
3G-Empfang wird empfohlen. Achtung: Im Ausland können hohe Roamingkosten entstehen.
