BOTHELL, WA. (September 26, 2018) – BaseMap announces updates to enhance outdoor planning, research and navigation. Effective immediately for all BaseMap Pro users are two new features designed to facilitate detailed planning for that next outdoor adventure.
Google Satellite imagery and Google Earth 3D topography have set the standard of modern mapmaking. BaseMap uses Google satellite imagery as its standard and now Pro subscribers have the luxury of opening custom location markers directly from BaseMap to Google Earth with the tap of a button. Custom marker icons and names appear directly on Google Earth giving users quick access and integration to true 3D topographic maps. Simply press the back button on Android or the top left of the screen on IOS to return to BaseMap.
To ease the search for previously marked locations or estimate the distance to a new planned route the Go-To navigation button instantaneously creates a straight line with distance and cardinal direction from the user’s phone to the marker location.
Both new features can be found on any custom marker’s menu in BaseMap. Tap on the “Add Marker” icon to create a custom marker.
