“Not too long ago, it was common to carry a briefcase filled with maps as large as 3 ft. x 2ft. that marked heli spots, division breaks, and numerous other landmarks. Although valuable, paper maps were very cumbersome, and sometimes so large that the ends could touch wall to wall in a tiny cockpit. When crews started to use digital maps on their iPads, it was definitely a welcome move for many. We used to get our first look of the fire during the morning briefing when the paper maps were handed out, but now both air and ground personnel come to the briefing more prepared knowing what they’re up against.”
“When you’re out at a job site, a paper map of this size can easily get battered and become burdensome. The beauty of accessing maps through the PDF Maps app is that I can view them on my iPhone and know exactly where I am in the field at any time – thus eliminating the need to carry bulky paper maps that need to be folded or rolled constantly. To be able to just scroll through a map with the touch of my finger is so convenient and easy.”
“Because of the nature of our job, the technology behind this app is crucial to what we do since the situation can change quickly and suddenly. With the map packets we utilized before discovering Avenza’s PDF Maps app, we were never able to update them after 11:00 PM the night prior – so much can change overnight when it comes to a wildfire or a hurricane. Now that we have the PDF Maps app, we can update our maps throughout the day to keep everyone fully informed of the situation.”
