Mappt Elements adds Hema integration

By on 31 January, 2018

A new partnership between MapData Services and the Takor Group, creator of the Mappt Elements iOS app, will see vastly improved coverage for rural and outback and rural areas, thanks to the integration of Hema’s rich basemap. 

Mappt Elements is an offline GIS app used to create, edit, store and share geospatial data with iPhone and iPad mobile devices, designed for users to be able to collect their own data and build layers on top of a rich set of basemaps.

Rural Australian users now stand to benefit from the partnership as Hema’s basemap becomes available to Mappt Elements users.

Ciaran Doyle, Product Manager of Mappt Elements and leader behind the Mappt Elements development team, said the partnership with MapData Services allows for improved workflows, particularly for fieldwork.

“Mappt Element’s ability to integrate with Hema Base Maps means our shared clients benefit from easier navigation, with access to the latest remote outback road and topographic data offline, to collect and gather data in the field,” he said.

“Additionally, this opens Mappt Elements up to a new type of user that may not necessarily be a typical GIS user. For example, the grey nomad or outdoor adventurer.”

MapData Services General Manager Brett Madsen said this partnership is ab example of the organisation providing content capabilities into other applications, following their ‘gold’ partnership with Safe Software,  which offers users their spatial data transformation platform FME as part of their digital mapping products.

“We are committed to integrating content into other systems similar to Mappt, to expand our digital mapping products, location-based data and tailored solutions offerings for clients, and ensure they are receiving the most cutting-edge technologies,” said Mr Madsen.
