MakkaMappa Lite - GPS any map to give You Are Here marker: campus, theme park, MTB, snowmobile, hiking, shopping mall, old map
Makkamappa : the next generation of maps.
MakkaMappa Lite allows you to download two public maps and all of your own maps that you've made on MakkaMappa.com - upgrade to the full version of MakkaMappa to download unlimited maps.
This app is the map viewer for MakkaMappa, a system enabling you to make, use and share visitor maps with all the modern mapping features you'd expect: location awareness, pop-up information boxes, off-line capability, social networking, and so on.
Whether you are the host, and you want a map for your visitors, or you are the visitor, and you want a map of your destination, Makkamappa is for you.
The app is only one half of the system. The other half is the website http://makkamappa.com – where you can upload new maps. Go here to upload a map to the system for FREE using our simple-to-use innovative web-based application. You need no extra software, only an image of the map you want to create. If you don't have time to upload your own map, let us know using the Request a Map button in the app or on the website. We'll get it set up as soon as we can.
Once you've uploaded your map to the website, use this app to view the map on your iPhone. Even better, go to the location the map represents, and view it there. You'll be amazed when you see your position correctly shown on the map, no matter how much the map is stretched or squashed compared to the geographic space it represents. You won't need a data connection to view maps – great if you're going abroad.
You can add any pop-up information to your map using the website. This is shown on the map as tappable icons that can be selectively turned on and off. Tapping on the icons displays your explanatory information.
When you've perfected your map, share it with others. You can tell them in person, or contact them by email, Facebook or Twitter using the social networking features in the app.
Warning: recording a track relies on continued use of the GPS chip, even when the app is in the background. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
