ElevMaps – 3D map viewer for your hiking trips

[App] ElevMaps

ElevMapsElevMaps : 3D map viewer for your hiking trips.

The 3D maps are rendered in OpenGL by combining map tiles from various sources with elevation data.
Do not expect too much from this app since I’m developing it in my free time. The user interface is poor and simplistic.

Current features:

View online/offline maps in 3D;
Download map areas for offline use;
View offline maps downloaded with Mobile Atlas Creator (MOBAC) (atlas format: OSMAND tile storage);
View Mapsforge maps;
Import and view OziExplorer maps;
Attach elevations for current downloaded maps;
Track recording;
Track builder;
Track play;
Import/Export of tracks in KML format;
Statistics (altitude, speed, distance);
Use elevation data in SRTM3 format.

ElevMaps user reviews :

A perfect labour of love and a great way to view planned hill walking routes. Thank you for doing this.

Is on a global platform but does not cater for a global market. Compass said ESE was north, that a 1300m tall mountain range 5,000km long was not there and it chewed 17% battery from running the app and non stop downloading in 20mins. This downloading happened despite not moving the map focus or having GPS location turned on. Better apps out there with out the headache.

  • The app is designed to be used offline. Regarding the compass issue, maybe a calibration using a third party app would help.

This is really nice for visualization of hiking trails, or to get a general idea of the surroundings. Really cool, also very snappy.

Great idea because I am an avid hiker…useless because I can’t get the topo or satellite maps to appear on screen – only the grids are there…keep trying, it has potential as an idea

Not sure where the elevation data is from but Merstham uk shows as very flat despite some big hills (hilltop road should be steep). Nice idea though

  • Elevation data is taken from an USGS server.
Very lmpressive Very easy to use, a nice added touch would be an elevation exaggeration slider bar, keep up the good work.

  • Thanks. I’ll keep in my mind your suggestion.
