Want to report automatically, at regular intervals, your location via email, without your intervention?
Want to immediately know the geographical coordinates of a particular address and the distance that separates it from another point?
Want to immediately see if a specific address has an image of the service "street view" of Google Maps?
Would you like to send by email the map of the area where you are or of any geographical location?
Want to send the better route that you determined to reach a certain place?
Want to interactively move the map cursor to get geocoding information?
iGetCoord Pro uses the process called geocoding, offered by Google Maps API, which allows obtaining the geographical coordinates (latitude and longitude) associated with other geographic data such as street address, city, country and other information.
The map displays a marker on the desired location and a caption that indicates the geographic coordinates of that point. It is possible, by a touch, to move the marker on the other locations to get new coordinates and new street address. The distance from the immediately previous point is simultaneously displayed for each point. They will be marked by a number in progressive order. All points are connected by a blue line. Their geographic data and geocoded information are reported in a list shown below main map.
The marker of the point can take many forms and contain Full information (coordinates, local civil time, Sunrise, Sunset and distance from the previous point), Less information (only the distance from the previous point) or None information (only the path).
After information list, two areas are displayed: the first contains a map of type "roadmap" and the second contains a picture of type "street view".
These allow you to use the same functionality offered by Google Maps service.
In fact you can move the little man on the "roadmap" to get (if any) the picture of the place where it is located. The streets where "street view" pictures are present will be blue colored.
When the user changes the position on the main map at the top, the other two areas will be updated
Other features present only in Pro version:
It is possible to send automatically an e-mail, by an external server, containing both geographic data of all visited points and the link to two static images representing the roadmap and satellite map of all points.
The button "Go" allows to continue the path already begun to reach the new location.
The button “New Path” breaks the previous path and initializes a new one.
In the list of data will be reported only the most recent path information, although the marks relating to the above path will not be deleted.
Calculate Route: it allows calculating and displaying the route to reach (By car or Walking) the point B from the point A. It is possible to move the markers to change the route. When the user taps on New Path button, new route window will be created.
All these information will be sent by email to the user. QR Code is generated for the route and sent by email.
All maps and their data will be displayed vertically in the same window.
User manual is directly available from the app.
What's New in Version 1.3
Through the MAIL button you can automatically send, at regular intervals (from every minute to every 30 minutes) and without your intervention, an email containing the geographic coordinates where you are. In the message body will be placed a static image of the route and two hyperlinks that link to "Google Maps" interactive: the first list all positions while the second only the shortest path that connects the first with the last point.
Free version can be sent up to 10 automatic mail for each session, at fixed intervals of 5 minutes
