Map Overlay Tracer

By Long Trail Development

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Map Property Image Overlay Tracer 1.0 is a simple map based iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad application designed with property owners and outdoor enthusiasts in mind. The applications simple purpose is to allow its users to overlay and trace images directly on top of the built-in interactive map creating their own maps or making a pre-existing image "location aware".

Featuring standard, attractive and recognizable user controls, the app is very intuitive and easy to use. In a matter of seconds a user can transform a simple, crude map image that might be already in a user’s email box or desktop, or even just a paper map sitting on their desk, and turn that image into a location aware map that can be taken into the field directly or traced onto google maps and saved as a new image. The possibilities are endless.

Example Uses:
*Find, walk and define the property boundaries of your home or business
*Explore the boundaries and old unmaintained trails of your favorite local or national park
*Confidently view satellite images of your house, business or favorite local or national park
*Create new paths, trails and corresponding maps on your own land

Feature Highlights:
*The ability to auto-align maps (pick two points on image, pick two points on map, hit button to auto align)
*Save aligned maps to be recalled later
*Simple, intuitive and recognizable User Interface
*Ability to import photos from the Photo Library or take an image with the built in camera
*Use GPS to see your location directly on the map
*Stretch, rotate and zoom user’s image to line up directly on Google’s interactive map
*Transparently fade user’s image in and out
*Trace in straight or curved lines
*Selectable trace color and thickness
*Save your new traced image directly into the user’s Photo Library

Developer Personal Statement:

“I developed this application because I had recently purchased a house on a relative large plot of land. I was given a black and white, to scale, boundary map, with no landmarks. I wanted way to go out onto my property and walk the boundary and ‘discover’ where exactly my property boundaries lay. I came up with an idea of being able to overlay an image on top of Google maps, line it up with known landmarks, in this case all I had to go with were some roads off my property but defined on the map, and then be able to use the integrated GPS of an iOS device to walk in the woods and fields and again ‘discover’ my property boundaries. Thus, Map Overlay Tracer way born.”

Wonky and crash-able

So, using my iPod Touch5, IOS 9, this is awful. Menus are black lettering on dark gray background. Can never see this. Everytime I switch to a top map, it crashes. It will not save anything, not locations, not maps, not coordinates, nothing. Then it will crash. After 10 minutes or so, it finally found out I was NOT in the Atlantic below Liberia, but in the USA. It is very slow to zoom in and out. I like study, well crafted apps. Map Overlay Tracer is not well crafted, nor dependable (crashes).


I was so thrilled when I saw this app. It seemed to do exactly what I needed. What a disappointment. It crashes about 5 different ways. Clearly they either didn't test at all, or rolled out a defective product and couldn't care less.

There seems to be no way to load a map from an image file for overlay. The slider doesn't seem to do anything. But who knows? I couldn't find a manual.

Apple should make them refund our money and boot this app from the store.


A little hard to get the hang of, but is working as I'd hoped. I'm finding it very useful!
