PDF Maps

PDF Maps header

Avenza’s PDF Maps app is a geospatial PDF reader for your Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. It compliments MAPublisher and Geographic Imager, both of which have the ability to export geospatial PDF. Geospatial PDF export is also supported by some common GIS applications including ArcGIS. This means that you can use your Apple iOS device to:

  • Access and load maps over a Wi-Fi or cellular network and download documents to read on your iOS device
  • Access and load maps from your own computer through iTunes File Sharing
  • Access and interact with saved maps without the need for a live network connection
  • View your location on the PDF map using the built-in GPS device (iPad and iPhone)
  • Use the compass to view true or magnetic north (iPad and iPhone)
  • Quickly view, zoom and pan maps using gestures (pinch, drag and flick, double tap)
  • Plot way-points, enter attribute data and notes and export them
  • Display the location of any point (latitude and longitude)
  • Measure distances and areas

The Avenza application can be used by companies, organizations and individuals who wish to share geographic information and knowledge. This application was designed specifically for non-GIS savvy users and will give field personnel the ability to interact with geospatial PDF maps and images. The app is available for download from the Apple App Store.
