Dive deeper into your data with Mappt 3.5


Introducing Street View and Street View Annotations!

It’s almost Christmas! But we before we kick back for a couple of weeks and soak up the sun (no snow for us Aussies), we thought we’d give you a quick run down of the latest features to land inside Mappt.

Mappt 3.5 hit the Google Play Store a few days ago, and if you’ve not upgraded yet, here are a few new features that let you dive into your data a little deeper…

Street View & Street View Annotations

Street View has arrived! So now you can explore the streets and create data from a detailed ground view instead of aerial.

Plus, because  you guys love using the annotation tool so much, we’ve made it available in Street View too. Now you can get all artsy on the streets, then save your masterpiece to Mappt or send it back to the office via email or Google Drive.

This will be especially useful if you want to quickly spec out a job without having to leave the office, or double check that the data you collected matches up with the location. But please bear in mind that Street View may not be available in every area (in which case an error message will pop up), or 100% up to date.

To activate Street View, click on the little man on the right hand side of the screen and it will open up on the nearest street to the crosshair. 


Turkish Translation

Mappt has been fully translated into Turkish. Yaşasın!


Navigation Mode

Technically this feature came out in Mappt 3.4, but we didn’t write a post about 3.4 so here we are!

If you’ve not used Navigation Mode yet, it’s an advanced auto-follow mode where the map will pan to the user’s location, but also adjust its bearing based on where you are heading. It’s like a satellite navigation system for a car.

To activate Navigation Mode, press the Auto-Follow button twice. The first tap will turn on Auto-Follow (where the map pans to the user’s current GPS location every second), a second tap will activate Navigation Mode, and a third tap will bring the user back to the normal map mode. 


Connect to Mappt Air 

Last, but by no means least, is the ability to connect to the upcoming shiny new tool, Mappt Air.

Mappt Air is a collaborative cloud service that synchronises Mappt projects across your teams in near real-time.

If you’ve not found this feature in the menu bar yet, it’s because we’re keeping it on the low down until it’s ready for us to sing and dance about. However, if you want a sneak preview, tap on it and enter your email for an exclusive invite.

So make sure you sign up to our newsletter so that you’ll be the first to hear when Mappt Air takes flight!

We’d like to say a big thank you for being a loyal user in 2016. We can’t wait to see what 2017 brings, and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
