Geospatial data viewing and collection in the palm of your hand.

Global Mapper Mobile


Global Mapper Mobile® is a powerful iOS and Android application for viewing and collecting GIS data. Utilizing the GPS capabilities of mobile devices, the app provides situational awareness and locational intelligence for remote mapping projects. A perfect complement to the desktop version of Global Mapper, the mobile edition 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 displays vector, raster, and elevation data layers that have been transferred from the desktop version of the software or streamed into the app from available online sources. It also provides tools for manual feature digitizing, GPS tracklog creation, and form-based attribute collection using pre-configured attributes and picklists.

Global Mapper Mobile has all the functionality you need to bring your GIS workflow to the field.
