A: The paid version allows creating unlimited number of points, lines and polygons, exporting and importing layers even in GeoJSON and ESRI Shapefile formats as well as backing up and restoring the entire application database. In the free is possible to add a maximum of 50 elements per layer.
A: Yes. Only the base maps are dependent on the Internet, but they are stored in a temporary multi-day memory when once loaded. So, for example, when you have a WiFi connection, you can load map tiles (by viewing the area of interest) and then work in the field without an Internet connection.
A: Points and vertices can be targeted using the position of your device where accuracy depends on your device (accuracy can be increased by an external antenna up to centimeter accuracy). Alternatively, you can enter points manually by inserting them into the base map. In this case, the accuracy of the focus point correlates with the accuracy of the base map (eg aerial image).
A: Positioning accuracy is given by the device itself (phone, tablet) and its technical capabilities. Positioning accuracy is affected by the quality of the GPS chip, the visibility of the satellites, or the presence of WiFi or Bluetooth devices that can make the location more accurate.
A: You can export the data to the device itself, or upload it to Google Drive and then work with it comfortably. Data import works the same as export, either from the device itself or from Google Drive.
A: Please check the amount of free space on your device (or Google Drive). If the application does not have enough space to export the data, the process will automatically stop. Photos can take up a relatively large amount of memory – depending on the set photo quality and possibly photo compression directly in the application.
A: The data itself usually occupies a size in hundreds of KB to MB. The overall size of the application mainly reflects the recorded multimedia – photos, videos and sounds. The size of the photos depends on the set quality. Image quality can be changed directly in the application settings.
A: Data can be processed in a wide range of GIS programs such as ArcGIS, QGIS, WEGAS and others. You can also easily work with data in Google My Maps by exporting KML data and sharing it on Google Drive.
A: Currently, the name of the exported photo consists of the date and time (hours, minutes, seconds) when the photo was taken. Attached photos to the element are then listed in the exported file (KML, GeoJSON, SHP) in the attribute “Multimedia”. In case of multiple photos at one attribute, the photo names are separated by a comma. It is similar also for other multimedia (video and audio).
