About this app

Global Mapper Mobile is a powerful mobile application for viewing and collecting GIS data. It utilizes the GPS capabilities of mobile devices to provide situational awareness and location intelligence for remote mapping projects.

A perfect complement to the desktop version of Global Mapper, the mobile edition 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.

In addition to what’s new (listed above), the base version of Global Mapper Mobile is free of charge and provides an array of features and functions, including:

• Expanded built-in supported vector styles and custom symbols
• Terrain layer support offers hill shading, terrain shader display as Atlas shader, and the ability to view elevation at a specific location.
• Improved layer transparency setting with a color picker and support for Dark ModGPS-based field data collection
• Digitizing or drawing tools
• Feature attribute management
• Simple and efficient data deployment and return
• Self-contained map storage and display - No data connection required
• Picture point creation from geotagged photos
• Online access to OpenStreetMap Data

Global Mapper Mobile Pro

• Advanced GPS support to connect to external high accuracy Bluetooth GPS devices from vendors such as Bad Elf and EOS, among others

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
