If you are a specialist in the field of mapping or surveying this is the perfect tool for use. It will not only allow one to create maps but also will give them the power to edit them while preserving high quality standards within a very short period of time. The interface serves as the central location for creating maps. This app comes with a very large pool of map templates where users can select any template and start creating their maps. The templates will serve as a guide in ensuring that they create maps easily.

The save feature is very useful especially when creating complex maps since users can save their work and continue at a later time. Users can also use the plug-in in the interface to integrate more GPS capabilities all to make sure that their maps have a professional look. The ability to include a search bar and other features available in all virtual maps is very useful in ensuring professional outlook.


  • - Users can have exact positioning of vectors
  • - The free templates available are useful in map creation
  • - Will produce professional like maps


  • - A bit hard to use for beginners
Ease to access guides and manuals:




For what are you going to use the program?
  • I'm working in a government agency and we're conducting research around in Cordillera Administrative Region and i need to map the study site.
