What's NewThe user's map type preference now is automatically preset to the last type selected.
App DescriptionOur unique zoomable 'South America' map atlas uses Apple's online map services to generate custom real-time regional maps plus maps for each country. Separate maps are also included for each of the states of Brazil, and for the very large metropolitan areas. The overall geographical area covered in this app ranges from Columbia in the north-west to Chile and Argentina in the south.
First, using the "Atlas" tab, select the region of interest within South America by tapping the desired map area. A list of available maps for that region will then be displayed. Tap the desired map name to show the desired map.
Switch between 'Road', 'Hybrid', and 'Satellite' map formats at a tap, and zoom in (or out) to get any detail level desired -- down to the individual house level! Change to a different area of focus with the drag of a finger and your display is instantly updated. And your Current Location is always highlighted by an animated blue dot, if you allow the app to use your current location.
Tapping a red "Facts" Button, when shown in the upper right, retrieves extensive relevant interactive descriptive information from Wikipedia. By following indicated links, more facts and photos are available in your specific areas of interest.
GPS and Geocaching Coordinates now are displayed on all maps in three different popular formats and in different colors -- dddmmss.xx [Traditional GPS] , dddmm.xxx [Geocaching], and ddd.xxxxx [Decimal GPS]. As you drag or zoom on a map display, these coordinate displays are automatically updated.
This app now also includes a "World" tab that launchs any of the component apps in our entire World Atlas series that are installed on the device. Using this feature, any one of our mapQWIK apps can launch any of the other apps in the series by simply clicking on an appropriate button.
