Hi Zoltan,

I have used Avenza Maps- I was impressed with the results. You can also access some NGI products through the their Map Store

Subject: [OSGeo Africa] Android GPS tracking on offline imagery

Hi AfricaList,
I see that there is a truckload of GIS related Apps in the Google Playstore.

I've just bought the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 (latest Android) and would like to put some TIF format aerial orthos onto it, and view them "at my current location" (track while I drive).
Beyond that plus zoom in/out, the only functionality I might want is to drop a pin at current location, and add a short note to it.

So, given this really basic, simple need, plus the billions of Android apps in the playstore, would anyone like to recommend a really lightweight app that I can do this with?

Regards and thanks in advance,
