GeoRover® Mobile

The GeoRover Mobile Application and Desktop solution brings the collection, editing, and visualization of field collected data to the palm of your hand.

The GeoRover Mobile software solution combines powerful desktop capabilities with the flexibility of mobile devices running the Android operating system. This solution streamlines and enhances the process of capturing, editing, and sharing field collected GIS data through a combination of robust and flexible interactive collection tools and Map-Pack import and export wizards.

The GeoRover Mobile Desktop provides the ability to package the data for use on your device. This tool enables users to import imagery, shapefiles, feature classes, and KML files. Users can also build point, line, and polygon feature collection layers to deploy pre-defined schema for field collection on mobile devices (phones or tablets) running the GeoRover Mobile application.

The GeoRover Mobile application is a program that resides on mobile devices that support the Android platform. This application can be used in connected or disconnected environments and allows users to edit and create features in existing shapefiles or feature classes. The Mobile application integrates both internal and external global position systems (GPS) and available Wi-Fi networks to provide current location data and to display map images from published Web Mapping Services (WMS).
