Avenza Systems Inc., announced the official release of more than 36,000 maps by LAND INFO Worldwide Mapping, LLC on the Avenza Map Store, exclusively for use in Avenza Maps, its mobile mapping app.
Avenza produces MAPublisher cartographic software for Adobe Illustrator and Geographic Imager geospatial tools for Adobe Photoshop. LAND INFO is a provider of global digital topographic map data, satellite imagery and value-added remote sensing solutions including advanced Object Based Image Analysis.
The companies have partnered to bring more than 10,000 maps to public consumers and 26,000 additional maps exclusively to Avenza Maps for GEOINT users. The GEOINT App Store, developed by the United States National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), makes the Avenza Maps app available to Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC) personnel.
“With this release of LAND INFO maps for our users, Avenza confirms its position as a global leader in supporting those who use offline maps for everything from outdoor recreation to tactical military operations,” said Ted Florence, Avenza Systems president.”
“Our map datasets have traditionally only been available to professional GIS users. As the industry-leading app, Avenza Maps was by far the best path to make our content available to both consumers and professional users needing fast and easy access to mapping in mobile devices,” Nick Hubing, president of LAND INFO, adds.
Public consumers have access to maps from more than 25 countries, some with 50k, 100k, 200k, and 250k map scales. GEOINT users will have access to maps from more than 100 countries, some with map scales as detailed as 10k and 25k, including several city level maps.
LAND INFO maps are each priced at $3.99 USD and are now available on the Avenza Map Store. GEOINT users have unlimited access to the Avenza Maps Store and downloads without any cost to the user. Additional bundled map sets will be available shortly.
