Bit Map Sync's Settings Across Devices (iOS, iPadOS, macOS)

Bit Map is an advanced mapping, navigation and GIS app which can use a vast array of online and offline spatial data services and formats (for Apple devices).

The latest update will sync (most of) your settings across all the devices on which you run Bit Map. There's a little more information about which settings do not sync between devices in the user manual here. But most settings do sync, including your list of available network mapping services, which is very handy!

NB: It does not sync locally stored data as these data sets can be too large for automated sync'ing. However, it is trivially easy to copy these data sets between devices manually if you wish.

Speaking of running Bit Map on multiple devices, it now runs on macOS too (in addition to iPhones and iPads). Previously Bit Map would run on Apple Silicon Macs (like most iPad apps do). But now it runs on both Apple Silicon Macs AND on Intel Macs. It still behaves a lot like an iPad app, but I have tweaked some of the behaviours to be more suited to macOS when it runs on that platform. I may add more Mac-specific changes later.

Viewing my latest epic bushwalking track overlaid on the LIST's aerial imagery in full-screen on my large wall-mounted, Mac-connected, TV looks amazing!

GET Bit Map FROM THE APP STORE HERE

For more information, the Bit Map home page is at http://nixanz.com/bitmap/ and says stuff like:

Bit Map is the original custom map navigation app, being first to provide navigation with arbitrary offline maps in 2009.

Rebuilt from scratch for version 7, Bit Map now supports a variety of online vector and raster map services including WFS, WMTS, TMS and XYZ/OSM-compatible services, as well as several offline vector and raster data formats such as GeoPackage, Shapefile, File Geodatabase (read-only), GPX and KML.

Map images can be imported and used as map layers with 4 methods of georeferencing available. Existing georeferencing will be automatically used for some image types.

Bit Map can even produce beautiful web maps that are easy to use and automatically synchronise layers from your device to the web map after the layers are updated!

Bit Map is built on a true GIS foundation and can manage data in hundreds of different coordinate systems, projections and geographic datums. Layers with different projections can be displayed simultaneously in the same map.


Bit Map is still available for FREE on the first day of each month this year and next year. So, even if you don't want to use Bit Map now, download it for free while you can and then delete it. That way, if you do wish to use it in the future, you will not be charged for it again later on, when it is no longer available for free.

Is it only for Apple?

Yes. Sorry to users of other platforms. I don’t have time to learn how to develop for other platforms.
