Today, technologies allow agribusinesses and agencies of all sizes to more efficiently manage forests and farmland. Avenza Maps has developed a cost-effective platform that enables you to align your mapping and field data collection needs with your existing enterprise business needs.
The flexibility of our mobile app allows you to import custom maps created by your team. Multiple maps of an area can be grouped as a collection for seamless browsing. When away from network coverage, maps can be used completely offline, only relying on GPS to precisely locate yourself and to collect points of data in the field. Create custom field collection schematics to take inventory of forested areas, crops, and other important points of interest. The app allows you to export data and upload it to your own network or a cloud storage solution. www.avenzamaps.com
