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.
*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
*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.”
What's New in Version 2.5.2
fixes for database crashes
It's nominally functional. I've used on both an iPhone 5 and iPad 3 and all the functions (map panning, zooming and image placement) all seem very jerky, like the app is on the verge of collapse with every function. The placement of the overlay image is almost TOO sensitive making it difficult to place one. Also, the ability to save multiple images to the base map would also be welcome...
Having said all that, it is nice being able to capture maps from online and make them "walkable".
Overall, usable but a lot of room for improvement.
This app did exactly what I needed, allowed me to copy parcel boundaries from our county website and paste it on to my phone so that I could verify my position on my property. Nice!
This was what I was looking for to use for my job but it continues to crash, has no print capability, and no start a new project button.
Please fix it would be an awesome app if it worked ok
