Tiled Maps 2.0

Thursday, July 11th, 2013

TiledMaps iconAfter quite a lot of tinkering, and a quite a lot of distraction with real life adventures, Tiled Maps 2.0 is out. There’s been a substantial change under the hood so it should load a lot faster and handle many more maps, but there are new features too:

  • Displays GPX files so you can take your tracks, routes and waypoints anywhere you go
  • Drop pins on to the map to record points of interest
  • Adjust the transparency of maps so you can mix topographic and shaded relief layers together
  • Reorder maps to stack them how you wish
  • Resizes nicely on iPhone 5 screens (yes I know I’m late on that one, but did you see I’ve now got a son to look after?)

Here’s a comparison of a USGS Topo map with and without a semitransparent shaded relief layer

There are still a few more features to come, specifically related to GPX files, so grab Tiled Maps while it is still only 99ยข.
You can get more information over at WildmanSoftware.com or on iTunes.

Introducing Tiled Maps

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

I’m proud to announce Tiled Maps has been accepted into the iTunes app store and now available for purchase. TiledMaps iconTiled Maps lets you take your maps with you where ever you go. The maps are stored on your iOS device so you’ll have access to them when you’re offline, which is great if you’re keen on taking long walks beyond cellphone coverage like I am. Tiled Maps is based on the TMS specification just like Google Maps and OpenLayers. Further information on how to prepare maps and load them into the app is available on the guide page.

Tiled Maps takes full advantage of what ever device it is on, meaning a specialized interface for iPhones and iPads, not just a stretched screen like some older map apps. The map can follow your location and even rotate the maps to match the way the device is facing if you prefer to be “in the map”.
