SHERIDAN, WY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/21/12 -- AgTerra Technologies of Sheridan, Wyoming announces the release of MapItFast, new mapping software for Android tablet and smartphone devices. MapItFast allows users to easily map points, lines, and areas (including user labels and descriptions) based upon their current GPS location. Features are placed on background street maps and/or aerial imagery. Pictures from any camera may also be included.
According to Alan Telck, president of AgTerra Technologies, 'The MapItFast app is designed for users who need a quick and easy way to map without expensive, cumbersome hardware and technically challenging software. MapItFast users can create professional and detailed maps without calling on a GIS expert. Furthermore, people are able to use the smartphone or tablet they are already comfortable with to get the job done.'
MapItFast only requires a GPS for creating maps on the device; however if a cellular data or Internet connection is available, MapItFast engines allow all map elements to be instantly available to project participants anywhere in the world. Maps may be securely shared, analyzed and edited online and even exported to formats that allow the data to be used in other GIS software systems such as Google Earth and ArcGIS.
MapItFast is an ideal mapping solution for outdoor based activities such as inspections and surveys, wildfire and disaster response, utility work, crop scouting, mobile asset tracking, wildlife management, oil and gas fieldwork, rangeland monitoring, weed and pest projects, and even outdoor recreational activities such as hiking, biking, horseback riding, geocaching and hunting.
