GeoNames Map Explorer iOS App
GeoNames Map Explorer iOS App is an app designed for maintaining your situational awareness and getting around in a new unfamiliar location or in a foreign Country.
It uses NGA’s Foreign GeoNames & USGS Domestic GeoNames databases (POI Points of Interest) set up in a highly optimized fashion for display on the map and searching. The app supports Audio Playback Pronunciations of this data.
The app works immediately after install with internet access and works offline by downloading an area of interest first.
The map, search, and audio playback work with data on Tech Maven Geospatial’s server.
The Data is broken down into nine categories (Feature Classes)
Locality or area
Streets, highways, roads, or railroad
The app was originally designed and sold exclusively to US Government personnel via the NGA GEOINT app Store (IGAPP) and now is publically available.
We are building custom white-labeled versions of this app as well as selling the source code. Contact us to learn more.
ADVANCED SPATIAL SEARCHING
Searching by Filtering Feature Class and Feature Designated Code
LOAD YOUR OWN MAP DATA
Users can view offline mapping data in the following formats
GeoJSON and MBTILES and GPKG raster tiles 3857
a vector data converter exists to convert other formats
ADVANCED MAPPING CAPABILITIES
- Coordinate Display (Lat Long, MGRS, GARS)
- Scale Bar
- Measure Area and Linear Tools
- GeoLocation with settings for tracking your location.
- Spatial bookmarks
- The map has optional vector tile overlays that can toggled on
- MGRS Grid, GARS GRID, TimeZones, International Boundaries
- The map supports searching MapBox and OSM
The app works equally well either Online connected to internet mapping services and API’s and Tile Servers or in a D-DIL Environment with offline mapping data and database
GeoNames data is displayed by Feature Class and users can decide what feature classes to show. The GeoNames Display field is used to control the scaling/zoom levels of the data.
