WMS and WFS Capabilities
- Access important WMS and WFS data directly inside Mappt for a faster and more efficient field experience.
- This data can range from base layers such as flora and fauna maps, through to feature rich points with a database and classification parameters.
- Mappt also allows you to cache the WMS and WFS data for offline use, giving you that important layer without sacrificing disk space.
- Mappt supports a wide range of WMS and WFS feeds with varying projections. This becomes important when managing environmental initiatives in multi-regional studies.
Importing and Exporting Data
- Before you set out, Mappt allows you to quickly import GIS data via local drive, SD card, or cloud based services such as Google Drive for offline viewing in the field.
- Import vector and existing data and export data in formats such as KML or Shapefile, with no need for an internet connection.
- Quickly import and load your custom aerial, satellite and topographic images into Mappt as ECW and JP2 images.
- Once back online you can publish and share your data. You can also directly send GIS files through your own email, or upload them onto your hosted online cloud accounts such as Google Drive and Dropbox for easy sharing.
- Mappt’s offline GPS tracking is essential for recording where you have been and how you got there.
- This is ideal for calculating distances, helping workers find targeted areas faster and providing evidence of the ground you have covered.
- Mappt’s offline GPS tracking also gives better transparency to make sure sensitive sites have not been disturbed.
- Geotagged photos have been implemented in Mappt to give you far more visual marker points.
- Instead of adding attributes to an ambiguous marker point, use your Android device’s camera to capture an image. Then Mappt will load that image onto the spot where it was taken. Never misplace that all important field photo again!
- Geotagged photos are also ideal for flagging hazards, or highlighting details you need to return to quickly and easily in the future.
- Assign attributes to layers and create a colour coded map to segregate information based on your data’s ecological values.
- Mappt will automatically adjust the colours of your layers to make thematic mapping quicker and easier. This makes mapping and analysing flora species far simpler.
- Gain a greater visual overview of your data for rapid assessment on the fly.
Cache Google Maps
- Because of Mappt’s advanced caching, you can cache Google Map layers and take them with you to remote areas.
- This works a treat with the added ability to load your very own customised raster images in ECW and JP2 format.
- If you know the areas that need assessing or that you want to keep your team away from, take advantage of Mappt’s geofencing feature.
- This feature is ideal for marking out areas you do not want to disturb, such as wildlife habitats, heritage land and sensitive sites.
- These geofences can be easily marked out as inclusion or exclusion zones.
- If a boundary is breached, an alarm will notify you and Mappt will log the event according to date, time and distance.
Drop Down Forms
- Drop down forms remove the need for traditional tables as the data can be pre-populated.
- Whether you need to map 5 or 500 plant species, drop down forms help normalise your data, (particularly if you’re working in a group), reduce repetitive typing and cut down human error.
