The Nuraghe app
This Nuraghe app has been developed to work as a kind of site navigator for the over 5000 nuraghi that have been documented so far on the Nuraghe map of Tharros.info. It makes use of a local database to store the core information of the sites. This local database has to be updated the first time you use the app to retrieve all the entries. Using the Search page you can search the nuraghi by name or by place. On the Details page the core information is shown, and when online additional information and an image are available. From the Details page you can visualize the position on the Nuraghe Map when online.
When online you can also navigate directly to the Nuraghe Map which will show your position but only when you are in Sardinia it will also show the locations of the nuraghi near to you. From the Nuraghe map you can open the Details page for a nuraghe.
Note that Google Maps caches the maps on your local device and this will allow you to view these maps also offline but it will consume memory space. If the app takes too much memory storage just clear the data and reload the database.
A Help/About page is available in the app.
The data available in the database on the nuraghi is obtained through study of the scrupulous work of archaeologists, maps of the Istituto Geografico Militare Italiana, Wikimapia, the Piano Urbanistico Comunale of a large number of municipalities and the Piano Paesaggistico Regionale of the Regione Sardegna.
The app is written for Android and tested with version 4.2 and higher and signed according to the Android specifications.
