Design your survey forms, organize data on layers, work offline with mbtiles base-maps, access WMS services, use GPS tracking to capture your line and polygon features, record GNSS metadata and much more to discover.

The app is widely used by professionals around the world and can be easily adopted for different applications from agriculture and forestry to road construction, geology, land surveying and solar panel solutions. Personalized settings and flexibility makes this app fit for purpose tool which will enhance your surveying workflow.

App can be also used as a measurement tool to calculate areas or distances.

When saving location simply choose required attributes from predefined drop-down list, no need to type the same information over and over again. Import long list of attributes from text files and re-use them in number of projects. If necessary you can add pictures to each location as well.

If you are working in the field, gathering large amount of spatial data this app is designed for you.

Speed up your workflow and make the data collection more efficient. Take advantage of survey layers and possibility to re-use same set of attributes for multiple surveys.

i would like a refund. waste of $15 for me. Maybe not a bad app for collecting data, but import functionality is quite limited. i purchased because it claimed to be able to import esri shape files. though that is partially true, i found that it can only import the most basic shape files with few points correctly. any polys with larger point counts or cutout areas within the poly do not import correctly, so it is of no use to me.

If you are happy to only have your data on your phone it's probably OK. But if you actually want to use it to make a map on your computer you have the upgrade to the pro version. Without that functionality it's absolutely useless. Devs should be up front about limitations on the free version so I don't waste my time on an app that "can" do what I need but doesn't.

Mapit GIS sems to be working well with Trimble Catalyst. Some questions though :-) Is there any way to load a project file rather than switching layers on or off? I need to work on different sites and don't want to have confusing layers. Which OSGB transformation does Mapit use? OSTN02 or OSTN15? Could the developer add the option to import SHP files? Great app!

Hi Gillian, please check Mapit Spatial for project like based workflow using geopackages. More info

What's new

FIX: Issue with Accuracy as HRMS reading. When connected to external GNSS this function was not working as expected.
FIX: Accuracy was always exported as HRMS when HRMS was available which was not expected behaviour.
FIX: Other minor bug fixes.
