The PDF Maps Mobile App, developed by Avenza Systems, Inc., is available as a free download from Avenza, iTunes, and Google Play. The app provides access to Forest Service maps.
The maps are georeferenced with the user’s location appearing as a blue dot. The app works on iPhones (3GS or newer) and iPads with WiFi+3G and on Android 4 or newer operating systems on devices with at least 1 GB of memory.
You can use the maps based on your location on a GPS-enabled device. With the app and maps installed, you can
- View your location
- Measure distances and areas
- Plot waypoints
- Find coordinates
- Open a current view in Google maps
- Add notes and enter your own data
- Add photos as attributes
- View maps offline
In areas of the national forest where Internet connections are unavailable (which is most of the Bighorns) you should install the georeferenced map(s) for your phone or tablet before you enter the forest.
