mapQWIK sea - South-East-Asia Zoomable Atlas
By Henry Vaughan
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Our unique zoomable 'South-East-Asia' map atlas is now available in the languages of English [the Default], Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Netherlands [Dutch]. It generates custom real-time regional maps plus separate maps for each country, for the very large metropolitan areas, and for each of the provinces of Indonesia. The overall geographical area covered in this app ranges from Thailand in the north-west to Indonesia and the Philippines in the east.
Easily switch between 'Road', 'Hybrid', or 'Satellite' maps, and zoom in (and out) to any detail level desired -- down to the house level! Change to a different area of focus with the drag of a finger and your display is instantly updated. Your Current Location is always highlighted by an animated blue dot, if you choose to allow the app to use your current location.
Tapping a 'Facts' Button, when shown, displays extensive relevant interactive descriptive information from Wikipedia. By following indicated links, more facts and photos are available in a specific areas of interest.
Using the 'Settings' tab, you can select the GPS Coordinates format to be displayed on all maps. Three different popular display formats are supported: Traditional [dddmmss.xx] , Modern [ddd.xxxxx], and Geocaching [dddmm.xxx]. As you drag or zoom on a map display, the GPS coordinates of the center of the display are automatically updated.
Using the 'World' tab, tap an appropriate button to launch any of the other component apps in our World Atlas series that are installed on the device.
What's New in Version 4.1.0
This major revision now supports internationalization [the automatic display of text in the user's local language]. Initial languages include English [the Default], Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Netherlands [Dutch].
The app displays have been redesigned to support iOS7, and maps and 'Facts' have been added for each of the provinces of Indonesia.
Mini country flags have been added next to the country names in the tables. Similar mini flags are also shown for the provinces of Indonesia.
A new 'Settings' tab is provided to specify the user's preference of GPS display formats, and that preference is stored and active until changed.
