ALISTAIR at Pivotal

At the end of May, geospatial enthusiasts flocked to Europe for the INSPIRE Geospatial World Forum. Collaborating for the first time, INSPIRE and Geospatial World created a landmark event on the spatial event calendar. We were there to network and support our Mappt evangelist Alistair Hart, who gave a compelling presentation on using mobile GIS technology to control disease. Read more here.


USER STORY

Daintree_Rainforest_3

ArborCare – Queensland, Australia
“We’ve been using Mappt to create Bushland Operational Assessment maps for our local council. We also use it for management plans to demonstrate work zones and management considerations relevant to the removal of environmental weeds.

“In the future we plan to send a map created on Mappt with every Site Log to our clients so that they can see and understand the scope of our works, as it can be hard to fully grasp with only a verbal or written explanation.

“Mappt is a great application for gathering geospatial data. It’s extremely user friendly and when we first got started we received helpful and prompt assistance from the team.”

– Michael Mills, Conservation Team Leader

FEATURE FOCUS: Geotagged Photos

Geotagged PhotosWe love Mappt’s addition of geotagged photos! Now you can capture specific details like a fallen tree or broken fence, and let Mappt pin them onto your map. This will show you exactly where details are so you can quickly find them again both on your map and in the field. Plus photos look far prettier on your map than marker points.


STAFF SPOTLIGHT: Piotr Dancewicz

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

“Anytime I feel lost, I pull out a map and stare. I stare until I have reminded myself that life is a giant adventure, so much to do, to see.”

– Angelina Jolie
