Use any photo as a map!

MapSnap GPS is a fast and easy handheld map for those situations where road maps aren't good enough and you can't download a map.
Just take a photo of a paper map using the camera in your device, mark your location using your inbuilt GPS, select the scale (or mark another location), and you're good to go.
Whether you're hiking, trekking, cycling, or just sick of endlessly unfolding and refolding tourist or amusement park maps, MapSnap GPS is the perfect tool!

MapSnap GPS
    • Allows you to photograph a physical map or use any image as a moving map
    • Shows your current GPS map position in real time
    • Adds a dynamic scale indicator (kilometres or miles) and a north indicator to every map
    • Can rotate maps to north, to your current bearing, or to true north (using the compass)
    • Supports SkyDrive/email GPX path export for upload to sites like Google or Bing maps
    • Has a realtime GPS dashboard
    • Can run under a locked screen
    • Automatically saves "snapped" maps and calibration data for every map you've used
    • Supports latitude/longitude, UTM/UPS, and MGRS georeferencing
    • Doesn't require a data connection for navigation - all maps are stored offline
    • Has a deep zoom function, perfect for fine details in scanned maps
    • Is great for trailhead maps and corn mazes!

    Elegantly simple! This app does one thing and does it very well.

    Great for places where I have no service. Stitched a nap together with screenshots from Google maps + Microsoft ICE. Great for amusement parks where a satellite view of the park does absolutely no good, but the park map is to scale.

    Fantastic concept and beautifully simple. I use it to navigate undeveloped land from surveys and google earth images. Usually no cell service so this app is perfect. Great job.

    Brilliant! Working perfectly now on my Nokia 920. Update June 2014: Running splendidly on my Lumia 1520 with WP8.1 Developer Preview.
