Survey GPS For Both Professional Survey Teams and Outdoor Adventures

With only a few touches, you can record the routes from your outings like hiking, biking, jogging, rally, survey trips, or pin places, like your favorite restaurants, directly on your device. Along with them, you can take photos, record videos and audios, or write brief description of the interesting landmarks, geotag them with current location and save them as POIs (point of interest) for your trip or survey project. Geocoding and geotagging can also be done to the photo and video files chosen from your iPhone library.

You can review your recorded trips and landmarks, and arrange the map view to show or hide the recorded information as you prefer. Survey GPS also allows you to modify or edit your tracks and points with functions such as Edit Properties, Delete, Move, Crop, and Merge.

For the basic version (USD 1.99), Survey GPS allows you to import/export your trip or survey information in the Survey GPS file format (TMX) via iTunes or email. You can back up your trip for later use or share your outing experience with friends, colleges or family.

Whereas the professional version, the In-App purchase option (USD 9.99), also allows you to import/export the files in the more universal GPX, MID/MIF, or Shapefiles formats.
