    Hello,

    Thank you for your post. You cannot access one map together simultaneously, your current workflow is the only option currently.

    I have gone ahead and filed a feature request for that type of functionality. I should note that this would likely require either an internet connection or some sort of external device in order to do that.

    If you have any questions please let me know.

    Thank you for that information. Even if your device doesn’t have a compass, you can still use Google Maps to “calibrate” your compass. For example, I have a Galaxy Tab S6 Lite and it doesn’t have a compass, but it allows me to “calibrate” the compass, but it doesn’t have a compass inside of it.

    If you need a compass to navigate, then in your next device, if it is an Android, looking for magnetometer as a sensor.

    Hello,

    Thank you for that information. I looked up the specs of the Samsung Galaxy A10e, and for its sensors, it only has an accelerometer and proximity sensor, in addition to the normal GPS sensors. Most Android devices that have a compass built into them have a magnetometer sensor which is used as a compass. Some compass apps use the accelerometer in conjunction with the GPS location to “guess” which way you are facing and how far you’ve moved. Which apps are you using that show your orientation?

    Hello,

    Thank you for your post. I just have a few questions so I can provide some assistance.

    1. Do you happen to have a metal case for your device? If so, when you remove it does it work?
    2. What is the make and model of your device?
    3. On the Avenza Maps app > Settings > Map View, do you have Magnetic North turned on or off?

    Let me know and we will proceed from there.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your post. Unfortunately, when you get a new device the map features and custom maps need to be transferred over. That information isn’t stored on a server or saved in a cloud. All of the information is saved locally on the device. This is to ensure greater security for the data. All of the custom maps and map features are associated with the app. If you delete the app, all of that information will be deleted too and cannot be retrieved.

    The Map Store account is only used to hold your purchased maps from the Avenza Map Store, it stores maps that you have already paid for so you don’t have to purchase the map again.

    The Subscription isn’t an actual account that holds anything, it only gives you access to certain features within the app. Such as unlimited map imports.

    The functionality you are requesting is a feature request that we want to implement in the future. That way users can backup their map features. I’ve gone ahead and added you to the feature request so you will be notified when it is implemented.

    Lastly, if you have created a backup of your old device or of the app, you can restore it from that backup. Unfortunately, I can’t give you another workaround or fix.

    Hello Charles,

    Thank you for your post. I’m sorry, I don’t know if there are any issues with those sites or the status of when they were will be operational. Hopefully, someone else on the forum will have some insight into the issue.

    In regards to some other country vector data, you could potentially get some GIS data from ArcGIS’s Hub, or USGS, or data.gov. I don’t know all the terms of use policies or if you need to credit the data source in some way, but those could be helpful. For the sea specifically, I believe the NOAA has some data that you can use.

    Hello,

    I also just wanted to add that the last version the document was saved with will be available in the document summary, in an upcoming version of MAPublisher. I have added you to the feature request so you will be notified when it is implemented.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your post.

    There are two different ways to check depending on the file type you have. It also depends if you use a macOS machine or PC machine.

    Windows:
    1. If you have a .ai document of your maps then you can right click on the document in a file explorer window > click on properties > click on the Details tab > and under Type it will show which version of Illustrator created the document.
    2. If you have a PDF, TIFF, or some other raster format, you can check to see which version it was created in by using OSGeo4W. This is an open-source software that you can download with QGIS, or standalone. You can look up the GDAL info to see what produced the map.

    Mac:
    1. If you have the raster format of your map, you can locate your map in Finder, in the information section, underneath the preview, you can show more information and it will show which version of Illustrator created the document.

    Let me know if you are using a mac and I will look into it further to see how a Mac can identify which version of Illustrator created the document.

    Hello Charles,

    Thank you for your post. In order to create a scale bar, you need to use a non-Geodetic coordinate system. When you try to create a scale bar there should be an error message that states “Scale bars cannot be created with a geodetic (i.e. lat-long) coordinate system. Perform a coordinate system transformation to a projected coordinate system if you would like to create a scale bar.”

    Therefore, if you would like to create a scale bar, you need to perform a transformation on the MAP View that includes the French boundary. To do this, you open the MAP View editor > Perform coordinate system transformation > select a different coordinate system. I would recommend that you transform it to WGS 84 / Pseudo-Mercator (EPSG: 3857) since your data is already in WGS 84, however, you can transform it to the coordinate system you would like to something that would better fit your project needs.

    Lastly, there is a feature request to have the ability to generate geodetic scale bars, I’ve gone ahead and added you to this feature request as well so you will be notified if and when it is implemented.

    If you have any questions or issues please let me know.

    Hello Mait,

    I also just wanted to let you know that you can use the “spherical” version of Azimuthal Equidistant to get a similar result to QGIS. The ellipsoidal version is the one we don’t support well in MAPublisher currently.

    Hello Mait,

    Thank you for your post. Unfortunately, the Azimuthal Equidistant projection isn’t properly supported in MAPublisher. This is an issue we are aware of, especially when transforming from WGS84 to Azimuthal the vectors don’t transform properly as you found out.

    We actually have numerous tickets filed for the Azimuthal Equidistant projection to properly support it, I’ve gone ahead and added you to the appropriate ones so you will be notified when the fixes are implemented. I’m sorry I can’t offer you a workaround at the moment.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your post. I would like some clarification so I understand what you’re requesting, do you want a placemark to be dropped every “x” distance or time?

    Or do you want the ability to quickly just tap on the placemark icon and it will just drop a point at that location without having you to submit information and fill out the fields? For example, you could have the Placemark information “pre-filled” for 10 different placemarks and the next 10 placemarks will drop in a specific order and you just need to tap on the Placemark icon to drop it.

    Unfortunately, both of those aren’t possible within the app yet, let me know what you would like to see and I can file a feature request for you.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your post. We support the legacy option in Apple’s App Store, therefore, if you have an Apple ID that had Avenza Maps before 3.12, you will be able to download the previous version of the app. Users can have an iOS 12.5.x device and go to the App Store and search for Avenza Maps and download the 3.11 version.

    Unfortunately, we can’t send you a version of the app the same way we can for Android devices.

    Hello Ben,

    I’m glad you were able to locate the time stamp using another software. This has been a feature request in the past. I’ve gone ahead and added you to the ticket so you will be notified if and when it is implemented.

    If you have any questions please let me know.
