I enjoyed Avenza Maps until recently...

After their recent move to a subscription model, I am in the market for a comparable app.

Feature requirements:

  1. Load Geospatial PDFs
  2. Capture photos along point data
  3. Does not have to be free, one-off fees qualify (up to 100$).
  4. Platform is iOS, Android if applicable.

  • Since this relates to software very specific to the gis community, I would rather keep it here. Geospatial PDFs are not widely known...

    Then as much as possible can you try to adhere to their question quality guidelines even though you are posting here.

  • Similar questions have been asked at Software Recommendations (one answer so far) and here (deleted by its asker).

You can always run an older version of the software if updates and support aren't required. There are quite a few websites that host .APK installers for legacy versions of apps.


You can still have unlimited PDFs with the Avenza app for 30$ a year. It's obviously not an one-off thing, but it's pretty close to your 100$ price range over a few years...
