About this app

Global Mapper Mobile

Bring your GIS workflow to the field.

Global Mapper Mobile® is a powerful Android application for viewing and collecting GIS data. It utilizes the GPS capabilities of mobile devices to provide situational awareness and locational intelligence for remote mapping projects. A perfect complement to the desktop version of Global Mapper, the mobile app provides maps-in-hand functionality for engineers, surveyors, wildlife managers, foresters, and anyone whose job requires access to spatial data in remote locations.

Global Mapper Mobile 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.

• Vector, raster, and terrain data display
• GPS location display
• Point, line, and polygon feature creation using GPS location
• Editing of existing vector features

• Creation of Picture Points from geotagged images
• Attribute and feature notation recording for new or existing vector features
• Online access to Open Street Map data

Global Mapper Mobile Pro
The Pro version of Global Mapper Mobile, available as an in-app purchase, supplements the functionality of the base version with an array of professional-grade tools, including:
• Advanced GPS support for connection to high-accuracy GNSS devices from vendors such as Bad Elf, EOS, Juniper, and others
• RTK correction via built-in NTRIP client
• GPS Averaging
• Terrain shader and water level display options
• Custom online source options and online data saving for offline use
• Simultaneous feature creation

I'm using the free version and I really love it , a mobile GIS software where I'm able to load high resolution aerial imagery, shape files, etc , packaged as global mobile mobile package files from the desktop version, then actively navigating with all the data loaded as background. One can also pick data in the field and visualize it right on the phone. Excellent. How much does it cost to get the paid version of global mapper mobile?

It is nice to access to your data on field , but I am disappointed, the app is to slow to responds and some time will crash when I update may date , it's not as good as PC's Edition even not about 10%. Hope it will be more responsive in the future.

An excellent start for those that use global mapper desktop. We have started to deploy in the field and it is a great way to allow people to take a full global mapper project with them. I am sure as more features are rolled into the app it will become better and better
