3D World is a powerful aide to planning your route. Bring maps to life within a continuous virtual landscape. Pan, zoom and fly through the map or change the lighting/shadows to simulate the effect of the sun at different times of the day. Select your camera angle, height and position, record, play back, print or export your own custom 3D journey.
All mapping products published by Memory‐Map include elevation data for 3D World at a resolution appropriate to the type and coverage of mapping.
Print full colour personalised maps at a scale of your choice up to A3 size. Personalise the map with routes, marks and notes. The added grid and coordinates in the margins allow you to plot and use the printed output in the same way you would a full size map sheet.
Create a Route Card and distribute it to your companions with all the necessary information in one document. Route Cards can be printed, emailed or posted on a web site. Route Cards re created in HTML so if you know a bit of HTML code you can tailor it to suit your needs.
Programming a GPS
Live GPS plot on a moving map
Plot Live GPS by connecting any GPS to your Laptop, or use the integrated GPS in a Windows Mobile Smartphone or compatible Personal Navigation Device (PND) and transform it into a fully featured GPS map/chart plotter. See your position in real-time on a high quality moving map/chart that scrolls as you move.
Memory-Map uses traditional navigational tools and terminology to guide you and help you work the map, including; Track logging, Range and Bearing to or from Positions, Estimated times (ETA), Cross Track Error (XTE), Velocity Made Good (VMG), clearing bearings, alarm zones and much more.
With Memory-Map, it's easy to build a history of your trips and even include features for the outdoor athlete.
Import a track log from a handheld GPS or one created with live GPS and see exactly where you've been, together with your speed and distance covered and profile in a graphical form. Some GPS units record heart rate and pedal cadence, which can also be displayed graphically.
Create a digital journal by adding pictures, text, sounds or other program files to any point on the map. By linking them to marks, a simple double click opens a photo, sound recording or other file.
