What's NewThis major revision now supports internationalization [the automatic display of text in the user's local language]. Initial languages include English [the Default], French, German, Italian, and Spanish. Other languages are planned.
Mini country flags are now shown next to the country names in the tables, and a new 'Settings' tab is provided to specify a preference of GPS display formats.
App DescriptionOur unique zoomable 'Europe' map atlas is now available in the English [the Default], French, German, Italian, and Spanish languages. It generates custom real-time regional maps plus separate maps for each country and for the very large metropolitan areas. The geographical area covered in this app ranges from Greenland to Istanbul (Turkey).
Easily switch between 'Road', 'Hybrid', or 'Satellite' maps, and zoom in (and out) to any detail level desired -- down to the house level! Change to a different area of focus with the drag of a finger and your display is instantly updated. Your Current Location is always highlighted by an animated blue dot, if you choose to allow the app to use your current location.
Tapping a 'Facts' Button, when shown, displays extensive relevant interactive descriptive information from Wikipedia. By following indicated links, more facts and photos are available in a specific areas of interest.
Using the 'Settings' tab, you can select the GPS Coordinates format to be displayed on all maps. Three different popular display formats are supported: Traditional [dddmmss.xx] , Modern [ddd.xxxxx], and Geocaching [dddmm.xxx]. As you drag or zoom on a map display, the GPS coordinates of the center of the display are automatically updated.
