About this app

NOTE: Devices that have recently upgraded to Android 14 may experience that the app locks up if you switch to another app and then back again. This applies at least to all newer Samsung phones. We are working to resolve the issue.

In the Where? app, you can download Norway's main topographic map series 'Norway 1:50 000' to your phone. You will always have access to maps on your phone, even when you are out in the woods and fields and outside the coverage area. If you're wondering where you are, then Where? show you that.

Where? allows you to easily download maps for entire counties, without it taking up too much space on your phone. You can also download maps covering 50 kilometers into Sweden and Finland. The map series 'Norway 1:50 000' has the same content as the military map series 'Beredskapskartet M711', which the Swedish Map Agency produces for the Norwegian Armed Forces. The preparedness map is used by the Armed Forces, the Police, the Civil Defense and similar units for exercises and actions.
The map series is continuously maintained, and it is important to always have the most up-to-date maps possible. The app will therefore remind you that you should download new maps if it has been more than 3 months since you downloaded them.

With Where? can you:
• Always have a map available, without having access to the internet.
• Find out where you are.
• Find out in which direction you are moving.
• Use compass view to show which direction the phone is pointing.
• Show position and coordinates.
• Save positions as 'bookmarks'.

ABOUT GPS USE:
Please note that extensive use of GPS can reduce battery life.

ABOUT NAVIGATION BY BOAT:
Only public charts are to be used when traveling by boat. Therefore, navigational information such as lighthouse and beacon sectors have been removed in the maps used in Where?

ABOUT USING MAPS ON LONGER TRIPS:
If you are going on longer trips, it is also important to have a paper map and compass with you. You can print 'Norway 1:50 000' on paper here: https://kartverket.no/Kart/lag-turkart-for-utskrift/

Good app, and more friendly than GeoViewer, but the download manager badly needs to be improved. Downloads are failing before they complete, then you have to try again from the start (no resume). I have tried to download Trondelag 6 or 7 times now (on a good ADSL connection) and still cannot get it to complete. It's a big waste of everyone's bandwidth...

Hei! Det var leit å høre. Vi har ikke erfart det samme, men det kan ha mange årsaker. Det kan ha vært et problem med vår server akkurat da som avbryter nedlastingen. Har du prøvd å laste ned på et annet nett? Eller på et annet tidspunkt? Send gjerne en epost til apps@kartverket.no, så kanskje vi kan finne ut hva problemet er og få løst det.

Please add Zoom In and Out buttons! All other map apps has it. For use with gloves, and to be able to use an emulator. HVOR has top quality detailed topo maps, download for offline use. Very useful for adventures outside mobile coverage (Femundsmarka). Shows detailed maps 50km into Sweden. Download on wifi was fast. Storage less than 3GB for southern Norway (and 50km of Sweden). Very good!

Hei! Takk for innspill om zoom-knapper, det er noe vi burde tenke på. Grunnen til at vi ikke har det med er at vi vil ha færrest mulig knapper i kartvinduet, men det finnes også gode grunner for å ha de med, som du sier. Mulig vi kunne lagt det til en som en opsjon i innstilling.

Nice concept! I like the idea of offline access to the maps. When online however, it would be nice to have the online map from WMS for example. Also, when on WiFi, the app warns that I have to be on WiFi to download... But only download once I switch to data (4G, 5G) by turning off the WiFi.
