Many professionals use GIS (Geographic Information Systems) to convey to a landowner specific details about thier propety such as location, special sites, forest and home areas, near by creeks and rivers, adjoining properties, as well as illustrate the layout of the property from an aerial view. There is now an app that is basically mobile GIS and is accessible for anyone to use!
PDF Maps is available on either Apple or Android devices where you can view geospatial PDF, GeoPDF, and GeoTIFF on your smartphones or tablets. This App is great for landowners who are considering forest management plans or future land ideas for their forestland. PDFMaps allows you to easily search thousands of professionally made geographical maps. With these maps you can view your location, record GPS tracks, add place marks, and find/record specific places of interest.
After viewing and editing your property or map, the information and data may then be saved and transported on GIS software where you can edit it further or save your work and upload as a PDF to print or store. This app creates great possibilities for the landowner and a forestry consultant to work together by ensuring the needs and wants of the landowner are clearly conveyed and the plan, ideas of the forester are understood. Landowners interested in moving their land forward with a plan of action, restoration, or preservation would benefit greatly by using the PDFMaps Mobile App.
