From Gogal Publishing:
Gogal Publishing Company releases its first two editions of Stream Map USA for iPhone and iPad. Each app is a complete GPS map and navigation tool for anglers, paddlers, hunters, hikers, and just about anyone who plays in the outdoors.
Stream Map USA features a searchable river, lake and stream map displayed over GPS-enabled roadmaps, satellite images, and topographic maps. The “Northeast Edition” covers all of New England, New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, while the “West Coast Edition” maps California, Oregon, and Washington.
Traditional maps have always treated rivers and streams as simple blue lines. This has made it difficult to quickly identify streams and almost impossible to follow a stream’s flow without careful study of the map labels. Stream Map USA takes a novel approach. Each river, lake and stream is mapped as a unique color. This allows users to quickly differentiate any water from its tributaries and follow any river or stream’s course from headwaters to mouth. When wading, hiking, or paddling, this color treatment easily identifies the direction one needs to travel to remain on the desired stream.
Stream Maps USA features a built-in search function, allowing users to easily find even the most obscure stream by simply entering its name. Color coded result pins then drop on the map, identifying any water that matches their search. The search page allows users to specify any combination of rivers, lakes and streams, and can be set to search the entire region or narrow a search to a specific state or even a specific county.
When planning to travel on the water, knowing current water conditions is a key safety feature, so Stream Map USA includes map markers that identify the location of active stream gages and gives users instant access to current water conditions directly from the US Geologic Survey.
In the field, cellular service is always a concern, so many features in Stream Map USA are designed to operate without cellular service. The map features a Continue reading
