Viewing Your Location Using GPS

Use the built-in GPS in your mobile device to locate yourself on any map (even works offline without network connectivity). Want to record where you're at? Simply drop placemarks at your location. Navigating through rugged terrain? Use the compass to orient yourself.

Recording GPS Tracks

Dropping Placemarks

What's a map without interaction? Drop placemark pins anywhere on the map with the tap of a finger. Need to move it? No problem. Just tap and hold a pin to pick it up, move it to the spot you want, then release it to drop it.

Finding Map Coordinates

Easily find coordinates on a map in popular formats including Latitude/Longitude (Map default or WGS84), Northing/Easting, and Military Grid Reference System/United States National Grid. This tool also has the ability to search for a specified coordinate.

Measuring Distance and Area

How far is it to that next intersection? Use the Measure Distance tool to measure how far you need to travel. Use the option to quickly change the measurement units.

Plotting Geotagged Photos

Captured a photo of something interesting and wanted to plot it on your map? Simply add the geotagged photo and a placemark will drop in the correct location on your map. It couldn't be any easier.

Finding Places
