Trusted by GIS professionals around the world

Mapper Mobile® is a powerful iOS and Android application for viewing and collecting GIS data. It utilizes the GPS capabilities of mobile devices to provide situational awareness and locational intelligence for remote mapping projects.

A perfect complement to the desktop version of Global Mapper, the mobile edition provides maps-in-hand functionality for engineers, surveyors, wildlife managers, foresters, and anyone whose job requires access to spatial data in remote locations.

Global Mapper Mobile can display vector, raster, and elevation data layers that have been transferred from the desktop version of the software. It also provides drawing, tracking, and form-based data collection tools using pre-configured attributes and picklists.

A subscription to the Pro module unlocks GNSS device connection, expanded online data sources, and volume and viewshed analysis tools.
