Mappt 3.3 is live


Here’s what new features and improvements are waiting for you

Your free Mappt upgrade is live and kicking on the Google Play Store.

Mappt 3.3 has the standard bug fixes and performance improvements, but we’ve mainly given a bit more love to geotagged photos and attributes in this build.

We’ve also thrown templates into the mix, but we’ll let you read on to get the full run down…

Geotagged photos

Geotagged photo annotations

When we released Mappt 3.2 last month, we introduced the colourful new annotation tool. Because you loved it so much (who doesn’t love drawing with their fingers?), you can now add annotations to new or existing geotagged photos.

To add annotations, open the Properties dialog of a geotagged photo and then tap the ‘Annotate Photo’ button. You’ll then see an interface exactly the same as the map annotations interface.

Adding arrows, shapes and text to geotagged photos allows you to highlight and label parts of the image before you send it to someone.


Take multiple geotagged photos faster

Before Mappt 3.3,if you wanted to take more than one geotagged photo at a time, there were quite a few taps involved.

Now we have streamlined the process so that you can take another geotagged photo immediately after taking an initial one with the new ‘Take Another Photo’ button.

Simply tap this to activate the camera and snap your next shot.

Required attributes

From now on, when you define an attribute you’ll see a little check box.

This box is used to mark an attribute as ‘Required’ (i.e. compulsory), so if the attribute is not filled or invalid, Mappt will display an exclamation mark next to the value, and also next to the feature and layer in the layer list for fast and easy identification. 


Autosuggestion for attributes

Mappt now suggests recently used values when you’re inputting data. This is another way we’re speeding up your GIS data collection.


Project templates

When you upgrade to Mappt 3.3, you’ll have the ability to save a project as a reusable template.

You can use this template for loading projects and saving any edits to a new file, which prevents users from modifying the template file.

You’ll know when a project is a template as it will have .mappttemplate at the end of the file and there will be a yellow tint in the list of files, instead of white.
