    Hi Joe,

    Thank you for sharing your findings with us. I am sure that this will benefit a lot of users.

    Through some testing of my own, I have had success in rotating the device 90 degrees in a counter-clockwise direction to take a landscape photo. This is exactly what the JPEG spinner is doing for you, however, if you do this with your device, you will not need to extract the KMZ and rotate the images and then recreate the KMZ. Images taken this way have displayed accurately in Google Earth every time I tested it on both iOS and Android devices so hopefully this works for you as well.

    Hello Nicholas,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    This is a new feature that we have implemented recently in our 3.7 update and this feedback is incredibly valuable to us. I have looked into this issue and have found that the fields are not being retained when you move the placemark because the fields are currently in a “limbo” state at the point at which you move it. If you were to back out of the placemark to place it in a “saved” state and then go back into the placemark and moved it, your values for these fields would be retained. I completely understand that this is adding additional steps to your already lengthy workflow and I have raised this with our QA Team who are working with me now to improve this. On iOS, the process of moving the placemarks to a different layer is much faster and easier than on Android so we will be looking at aligning the two platforms.

    The main reason why we didn’t want the GPS averaged placemarks to obey the ‘current layer’ is that with the feature comes 4 additional attributes that would be added to the schema of every layer that one of the averaged placemarks is added to. We know from speaking with our users that multiple layers are used simultaneously for different types of data collection, with the active layer being switched all the time, so if the averaged placemarks were to obey the current layer, this data will be spread across multiple layers and additional attributes added to each specific schema. We had the idea to keep all of this data in one place instead of polluting other schemas with additional attributes. I can file a feature request for GPS averaged placemarks to obey the current layer and include your contact information (if you would like to provide it by contacting us via help.avenzamaps.com) so that you will be notified if this is implemented in a future update. Any additional information you could provide as to why this would improve your workflow would be really helpful.

    Hello Frances,

    Thank you for your question.

    In order to give you an accurate answer as to how these transformations are handled, I will need to escalate this to our developers.

    In order to escalate this issue, I will need you to contact us via our help centre over at help.avenzamaps.com.

    Hello Robert,

    That is a great question. I am not sure of any specific sources of data that would allow for this.

    What area would this be in regards to?

    Hello Jordan,

    Your symbols will be preserved if you export the layer from the iOS device as a KML and not a Shapefile as the Shapefile format does not have the ability to preserve symbology.

    in reply to: Best resolution for PDF-maps? #18611

    oliver
    Moderator

    Hello Ruben,

    This is because Avenza Maps is raster based software (like Adobe Photoshop) and not a vector based (like Adobe Illustrator). All vector data is rasterized on import. It’s not only the resolution but also the image size that will affect the final look of the map, the amount of zoom you can achieve and the files size. The file size will then affect processing times on import. We don’t normally recommend image sizes above 10,000 x 10,000 but this is possible as an image may have a very high resolution but a small disk size due to image compression. I would recommend trying some different export settings and image dimensions until you find something that suits your needs.

    For more help and guidance, you can contact us via help.avenza.com.

    Hello Ruben,

    When you import Geospatial PDF maps into Avenza Maps, they are rasterized and tiled (converted to an image). To achieve the zoom characteristics of vector data that you are thinking of, the app would need to support vector base maps which it currently does not. By importing your map as a GeoTiff, you can avoid some of the longer processing times associated with converting vector features to raster format.

    Hello James,

    Are you importing all of the PDF’s into MAPublisher at the same time using the Multiple Data Import tool? Are the files referenced using the same coordinate system?

    Personally, I would export them individually from MAPublisher as GeoTiffs and mosaic them together in Geographic Imager if you have access to the software. If the files do not line up with each other properly, it would also be easier to correct the georeferencing in this software.

    I would suggest contacting us through help.avenza.com so that we can take a look at your workflow in more detail.

    in reply to: Android 4.4.2: which version of Avenza Maps? #18551

    oliver
    Moderator

    Hello Walt,

    Unfortunately, we no longer support version 3.2.2 for Android OS 4. Avenza Maps 3.6 is compatible with Android 6.0 and higher. If your device is not running Android 6.0 (or newer) or is not able to update to OS 6.0 or newer then you will be unable to download the app from the Google Play Store.

    If you have purchased maps on the Avenza Map Store, you would not lose them as they are saved to your Map Store account and can be easily downloaded onto a new device from your Purchase History. If you need any help with this in the future, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at help.avenza.com.
