Import your own tabular data as points on a map where the table has columns showing geographic co-ordinates.
Access your data through the dynamic attribute table, direct from your map viewer by carrying out searches and visualising your data.
Save locations of interest for later with the bookmark tool. Share your saved view by setting zoom levels and turning layers on and off.
Draw & Measure
Make text annotations to your maps and draw lines, circles and shapes to measure distances between points and highlight areas of interest.
Capture your view using the export map tool. Set the location, turn layers on and off and save as a jpeg to share your view with others.
Turn layers on and off using the layer list. Add multiple layers on top of each other and set transparency to show what is happening and where.
Find areas of interest using the locate tool. Search for towns, cities, provinces and districts as well as other points of interest and discover what is happening in your environment.
Compare change over time by studying the same area of interest at different times. Set the transparency of layers to visualise your story and understand what is happening.
Get real-time tracking live in your web browser with the GPS tracking tool. Monitor distances travelled and switch between satellite and map views to conduct route analysis.
